Good Hotel Guide Review

The Cave family’s holiday hotel, in a ‘marvellous location’ overlooking Cardigan Bay, is ‘very much family orientated, and the facilities are excellent – indoor pool, putting green, games room, beach across the road’. For adults there’s a library and restful lounges. Devotees return time and again. ‘Another delightful visit to this institution of a hotel,’ one writes this year. But not everyone wants to stay in an institution. ‘Perfectly good, but not perfect for us,’ relates another reader, who ‘just wanted a base to walk from’. At mealtimes the dining room with sea views is heaving, and the kitchen in overdrive. Still, ‘the waiter had the good sense to ask if we wanted a break before ordering pudding’. Also, ‘the food was fine… roast pheasant, chicken, seared swordfish… excellent tropical fruit salad, banoffee pie’. Bedrooms vary. Some have a balcony, some interconnect. ‘The top floor suites are worthy of any five-star hotel.’ Readers appreciated the hotel ‘paying so much attention to standards of service, especially the meticulous housekeeping’. Breakfast brings kippers, home-cooked ham, free-range eggs. (Stephen and Jane Marshall, Peter Anderson, Clive Blackburn, and others)

Guest comments

'Keeps its high standards through generations of family ownership. Family hotel with enough space to avoid children if you wish. Well-appointed rooms. Friendly staff. Good food with plenty of choice. ' - Dorothy Brining - April, 2019
'Marvellous location. The top-floor suites are worthy on any five-star hotel. The Cave family maintain a close oversight. For most services even pernickety guests cannot raise a whimper of complaint. Dinner service is so swift you may have to ask staff to slow it down, and there is an over-emphasis on potatoes. . ' - Clive Blackburn - April, 2018
'This is very much family orientated and the facilities are excellent. The room was big with lots of storage space and a very comfortable bed. We had a side sea view although the sea was a long way off! It was also next to the lift which was a nuisance at times. Decent bathroom but poor pressure in the shower. The restaurant was clearly designed to get people through with reasonable speed. The food was fine). Service was quick. Not a place to go for a leisurely meal. Same story at breakfast. ' - Peterr Anderson - August, 2017
'Our first impressions were of a nicely dated 30s, well-run, unostentatious establishment with staff who were happy to talk to you. The room had sea views. We felt immediately at home. Breakfast and dinner were good and speedily served Due to illness we unexpectedly had to cut our stay half way through our booking. The staff were marvellous. They simply asked my wife to pay for the time spent plus a few extras we had had and refused to apply additional charges. A hotel with heart and a soul. ' - Peter Rogers - May, 2014
