Good Hotel Guide Review

Friendly and welcoming as ever, this B&B is run by second-generation owners Michael and Judith Cooper, and their son, Oliver. Launched in 1984 with Judith’s late parents, Cnapan has featured in the Guide for more than 30 years. The pretty, Grade II late Georgian house in a conservation area is a great base for those wanting to explore the Preseli hills, to walk the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, to spend a day on nearby sandy beaches, or simply to browse this small seaside town’s shops and galleries. Bedrooms, some with views of mountain and Norman castle, are contemporary, ‘not luxurious’, ‘not huge’, but ‘fresh and bright’, with original artwork, good toiletries, a ‘sparkling bathroom’, and wool blankets to go with a super-king-size bed. While the family no longer serve dinner, there are good places to eat out nearby– the Coopers will happily advise. The feeling is that of a family home. Guests can also take tea in the flower-filled garden, while breakfast brings local produce cooked to order, home-made marmalade. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'We had a most rewarding stay at this former restaurant-with rooms. Judith Cooper's energy, enthusiasm and kindness radiates, whilst husband Michael provides a friendly, cultured support, with son Oliver carrying on this welcoming style. Though there is nothing to suggest from the road that hospitality and cooking of highest quality lies behind the front door, this is an outstanding B&B. ' - RG - September, 2018
'Traditional ambience but not stuffy. Exceptionally welcoming owners; they are always available for a chat. Great food based on local produce. Well-informed, unstuffy service. The bedrooms are not luxurious or huge; they are comfortable, fresh and bright. Sparkling new bathrooms. Locally made blankets and pictures by local artists. Nice touches like useful shelves for toiletries etc and extra bottled water on a table on the landing. ' - Jan Lund - September, 2015
