This has to be one of the best B&Bs we have ever stayed in. Our room on the third floor was very large, with a good size bathroom and a separate coffee making area...and a sofa! The bed was very comfortable, the breakfast excellent....pancakes to die for...and Shirley and her husband were so welcoming and very helpul.

Thankyou Shirley and Frances for yet another Home from Home stay! breakfast as fantastic as ever and the hospitality great. The room we chose is on the ground floor with access to a small garden area, which is ideal for a late night look at the stars(weather permitting) which we are hoping to use if we are fortunate enough to...

Within 50 yards of Borth station, and handy for Ynys Hir and Aberystwyth, this is a warm and welcoming place, as well as being very reasonably priced. The Full Breakfast lives up to its name - piping hot and plenty of it, making the offerings at many a better-known establishment look positively weedy by comparison. You could probably skip lunch!

The rooms were clean. The owners were friendly. The breakfast was excellent with fairly good choice - the kids were pleased they had the option of pancakes. We highly recommend this place and would certainly stay here again.

One of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. Shirley and Frances offer some of the best hospitality we have ever experienced. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable, with some very nice little extras added. The best compliment I can pay Heulwen is that it's just like staying with your favourite relatives or friends. It's really that good..!!... More

Shirley and her husband run a warm, cosy and welcoming place. My room was spacious and comfortable, with a big sofa and a view of the sea, I arrived late after a long journey and instantly felt relaxed and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, in a friendly, cheerful breakfast room. I was travelling for work but will definitely return for leisure.... More

One night stay on the family room, massive room including a sofa! Very comfortable bed, warm and clean. Bathroom only down the corridor with bath and shower. Excellent for small or large families! Breakfast was excellent, full English (welsh) plus fruit salad and cereals Pleasure to stay and would definitely go back - made to feel very welcome!

My girlfriend and I took a trip to Borth for our anniversary and stayed at Heulwen from the 11th to the 13th March. The guest house is situated less than a minute away from the station and is surrounded by a rainbow coloured terrace. The interior is full of interesting and international decorations and a lot of wind chimes. It... More

We stayed here for a weekend in September 2013. We had a family room, which was very comfortable, clean and quiet with plenty of toys to keep the children amused. Lovely breakfasts. A good location very close to the beach and near plenty of beautiful countryside, even if the weather was somewhat Welsh. It would also be ideal for anyone... More

This B&B is in a great location right next to the sea. We stayed in the family room for one night over the bank holiday weekend and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Shirley was so welcoming and gave me her mobile number before we arrived so I could see if the room was ready for when we arrived... More
