Good Hotel Guide Review

Above the harbour in a seaside town with spectacular views over Cardigan Bay to the Preseli hills, this Georgian town house B&B is all that the smart street front promises – and more. Helen and Chris Sheldon are ‘perfect hosts’. ‘We arrived late from the [Rosslare] ferry, and they made us very welcome,’ writes a reader this year. Bedrooms have contemporary decor, with perhaps bright fabric headboards and the occasional well-chosen antique, as well as vegan Noble Isle toiletries and an honesty hamper of Welsh treats. Two superior sea-view rooms can sleep a family. Airy lounges with wood floor and earthy hues are hung with works by Welsh artists. A cream tea can be taken by a log-burning stove or, when the sun shines, on the rear terrace, with its views over the fishing-boat-bobbing harbour where, 50 years ago, Hollywood descended to film Under Milk Wood. A generous breakfast buffet, organic eggs and hand-made sausages fixes you up to walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path that runs below; take a packed lunch. ‘We had a delightful stay, one of many over the years,’ another reader affirms.
