Good Hotel Guide Review

‘How could a simple family home on a narrow, bustling high street possibly work as a popular guest house? Step inside Cnapan and you quickly find out.’ A reader this year thoroughly endorses our inspector’s approval for Judith and Michael Cooper’s ‘outstanding’ B&B in a Georgian house within a conservation area. Bedrooms have original features, neutral decor, contemporary furnishings and modern bathroom fittings. A family room has a double bed with a single in an adjoining room. Rooms at the back overlook the secluded garden. Front rooms may experience some traffic noise, but enjoy views of St Mary’s church, the Norman castle and Carningli mountain. All have art by local artists, wool blankets and Mason & Miller bath products. A breakfast of ‘fresh produce, beautifully cooked’, brings a full Welsh or full vegetarian, oak-smoked salmon, vegan chickpea and apricot patties, kippers and more, with ‘everything piping hot’. The Coopers no longer offer an evening meal, but will recommend good local restaurants. ‘This is how a B&B should be run – warm, friendly and helpful.’ (Helen Harvey, RG)
