Good Hotel Guide Review

Huw and Beth Roberts bid croeso to guests arriving at their smart hotel, in a ‘great seafront position’ in this university town. Enter the Grade II listed Victorian terrace house to find modern interiors imbued with real character and a strong sense of place: locally handcrafted furniture inlaid with Welsh slate; Welsh poetry on display; emphatic oil paintings inspired by the surrounding landscape, created by a local artist. The bedrooms are individually and ‘excellently’ decorated, says a regular Guide reader in 2017, who praised his ‘fantastic’ top-floor room under sturdy oak beams. ‘The rooms overlooking the sea are very good, with chairs in the bay window so you can enjoy the passing scene.’ In the modern-rustic dining room, chef William Ainsworth’s cooking is ‘highly recommended’. There are small plates, large plates, tasting platters and a ‘magic’ Welsh rarebit at lunch; at dinner, characteristic dishes include mushroom, tarragon and Perl Wen cheese arancini; fillet of cod, herb mash, buttered savoy cabbage. The resort town has plenty of diversion – down to the winter starlings roosting under the pier. (Michael Eldridge, and others)

Guest comments

'All the staff were very helpful. No residents' lounge, but it was pleasant to sit in our large bedroom watching the sea. We enjoyed the evening meal - very much bistro style. Breakfast has high-quality ingredients. ' - GC - October, 2017
'The welcome from the Welsh bilingual staff was good. Our compact but smart room had an excellent bathroom. Diner was good, not great; pop music played at mealtimes was distraction. Breakfast could have been better. ' - DB - August, 2017
'A very good stay. Excellent décor. Fantastic food and good service. Great position. ' - Michael Eldridge - January, 2017
