Staying at Yr Hafod was an absolute delight. You get a warm welcome from the friendly owner John, the rooms are large and comfortable and seem newly refurbished. The breakfasts are incredible - a full Welsh or a veggie Welsh or fruit and yoghurt (and you've never seen such a plateful of fruit). The location si stunning (sea front), handy... More

Was looking for a decent b&b in my home town for a one night stay for a school reunion and Yr Hafod came recommended. I echo all the other positive comments on here; spotlessly clean en suite double room with comfy bed and sea view over South beach - it's been 30 years since I last fell asleep to the... More

I stayed in this bed and breakfast in May 2014 and I had the best of times. The owner is a gentleman and a perfect host. The room was impecable and so was the delicious breakfast. I highly recommend this place.

Right by the promenade, we looked from our room out onto the sea. Even though the weather was mixed, we had a most pleasant stay. John, the owner, is really nice, helpful and with a special sense of humour. He has been renovating and modernizing this house for the last few years, in a very modern and stylish way. Especially...
