Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The sun doesn’t have to shine before you get a warm welcome,’ writes a reader in 2017, of this much-loved hotel overlooking Cardigan Bay. ‘It’s everything the doctor ordered, including the ability to chill out wherever you choose.’ The games room, library, seaward lounges and indoor pool offer plenty of diversion, whatever the weather; in sunshine, the golf course and miles of sandy beach come into their own. The Cave family has owned and run the child-friendly, dog-friendly hotel since 1907; devotees praise the sense of tradition. ‘I first went with two small daughters and now have grandchildren of 20. The hotel has kept its standards.’ ‘Immaculately clean’ bedrooms, some large, are filled with light. ‘Those with a balcony are ideal in the summer.’ Flexible eating options include bar snacks, packed lunches, a children’s supper; grown-ups might kick off sandshoes and shorts and dress up for a five-course dinner. A typical dish: steamed Dover sole, prawn mousse, Cardinal sauce. After a ‘generous breakfast’, pick up a leaflet on nearby walks and drives, then head out to explore.

Guest comments

'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
'We have been visiting over the last 40 years, and the standard has not changed. Now, with a party ranging from 80 (me) to six, we find it a real joy. The swimming pool, snooker and children’s room appeal to the grandchildren, while there is a quiet lounge for the adults. The bar lunch menu - delicious sandwiches and salads – makes you look forward to dinner. The menu changes daily, but always has one conservative and one more exciting main course. Service throughout is good. Rooms are well equipped and have glorious views from the front of the hotel. The Cave family put in a lot of effort, and it shows. ' - Dorothy Brining - October, 2013
