Good Hotel Guide Review

‘It was fabulous to gaze across the dunes and golf course to the sea, with the sunset,’ writes a reader who ‘much enjoyed’ this year's break at the Cave family’s hotel. Overlooking Cardigan Bay, Trefeddian has an all-year, all-weather holiday vibe. On wet days, the lounges, library, ‘great playroom, table tennis, pool tables’ and indoor pool come into their own. When the sun shines, tennis courts, putting green and ‘huge, wonderful sandy beach' beckon. You must cross road, railway line and dunes to get there, but it’s worth it, and you can take a packed lunch. Bedrooms include some with a sea-facing balcony, others a view of hills. Family rooms are generous; all are bright and modern. ‘Impeccable’ housekeeping and a sense of efficiency extends to the dining room, where ‘we deduced everything was prepared, cooked, ready to go’. Not fine dining, then, but ‘very acceptable’ fare – ‘duck, pollack, lamb shank, syrup sponge and custard. . . extremely quickly served’. An all-day lounge menu and children's supper allow flexible eating. In sum, ‘very well run, perhaps not suiting someone who wanted something more intimate or individual’. (Carol Jackson, S and JM, and others)
