Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Relaxed and comfortable’, this ‘lovely, wacky’ hotel overlooking Cardigan Bay is ‘ideal for rest, fresh air, beach and coastal walks’. It has been owned by the Fletcher-Brewer family for 70 years. ‘There’s a home-away-from-home feel, with books and magazines, a playroom, coffee in the hall to help ourselves to, vases of irises and lilies in the lounges.’ The soul of the place, Nick Fletcher-Brewer, is ‘a character: jolly, jokey, casual and quirky’. ‘Simple, unfussy’ bedrooms have antique pieces and paintings, perhaps a distant sea view. Dinner, which might include ‘melt-in-the-mouth pork belly with superb crispy crackling’, is cooked by Louise Fletcher-Brewer and Darren Shenton-Morris. ‘Our three-course meal included nibbles, amuse-bouche, delicious breads and home-made petits fours with coffee.’ (A light supper menu appeals to those who may have overindulged.) At breakfast, ‘tasty sausages, proper toast, home-made marmalade and delicious local yogurts’ set you up for a day’s wanderings: walk along the Wales Coastal Path, swim in the pool, or take a dip in the sea, a five-minute walk away.

Guest comments

'Ideal for fresh air, beach and coast walks. Our room was large and unfussy. Nick is jolly, jokey and quirky. Food was good, service excellent. We had a relaxing and comfortable stay. Not inexpensive but good value. ' - Carol and Geoffrey Jackson - April, 2016
'We had a great time at this Boris Johnson of hotels (pretends to be bumbling, actually hugely professional). The food is outstanding (both dinners and breakfasts), and the option of 'light bite' a la carte dinners alongside three/four course ones is welcome . Little touches such as letting guests carry over a bottle of wine from one night to the next are thoughtful. The sea views are amazing, and the swimming pool is lovely. Only problem was that dinner service was a little slow one night when lots of guests turn up at once. Very highly recommended. ' - SM - September, 2015
