We were welcomed very warmly and made to feel at home straight away. Everything was exceptionally well presented. Steve and Paul are the very best of hosts combining informality with just the right amount of concern. The kingfishers put on a really great show on Sunday evening - (Paul said he had them "on strings" but we didn't believe him!)... More

It was great to learn that you had the opportunity to see the Kingfishers, they are there but you have to be very alert to see them. Thank you for your kind comments we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and felt at home. The garden and riverbank seem to be getting very busy with Spring arriving... More

unfortunately we only stayed 1 night in the Kingfisher Room, comfortable and clean room with stunning views along the riverbank. On arrival we received a warm welcome from our hosts Steve & Paul thank you for the leaflets and suggested areas to visit . After a great nights sleep it was finished off with a full home cooked breakfast over... More

One nighters are just as important to us as any other length of stay. We feel that our location is ideal along the riverbank but close enough to see what West Wales has to offer. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again whether it is one night or seven. Thank you... More

Beautiful location and the Otter suite was adequate for our one night stay. However, we were rather disconcerted by the amount of rules. At breakfast we followed the 'breakfast dress code' and wore shoes. Unfortunately, one of us had brought a small amount of mud in on our shoes, which was cleaned up from under our feet and table WHILST... More

Thank you for your comments, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. After 10 years I find it rather strange that some interpret common decency and respect for others as "rules". Our standards of house keeping and measures we enforce for health and safety reasons are something other guests acknowledge and respect and we are proud of. If you... More

A fantastic B&B worth 5 stars. The welcome, cleanliness and food was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble by our hosts Steve and Paul. The immaculate garden was a joy to the eye and an excellent relaxing venue by the riverside. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area and would enjoy 5 star treatment and a... More

Our hosts, Steve and Paul, were a great source of information. Very obliging and offered us leaflets on our planned destination whenever possible. Our room was spotless and well equipped. Breakfasts were delicious with generous portions. This B & B was beautifully situated on a river with beautiful gardens. A great place to just chill out and forget the stress... More

A lovely B&B - clean, comfortable and so peaceful. The garden with the river at the end is very special. We could not have been made more welcome. The food was delicious and cooked exactly as we wanted. I would recommend this B&B and would definitely return if going back to the area.
