Lovely looking building with stunning views from the terrace area outside (although the terrace could do with sprucing up to make it more appealing) and even better views from the bedrooms upstairs. My room was a bit of a let-down, very basic and quite tired and I was dreading opening the en-suite bathroom door but "wow" - 5 star shower... More

Fantastic view from bedroom window somewhat made up for the tired Welsh hotel look (I always suffer with hotel bedding - I'm going to start packing my own blanket - indeed, I'll put it in my bag now while I thin about it) Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was great, beer was great. Not the cheapest hotel, but worth... More

I stayed here with a fairly large group of friends in July. The hotel is set in stunning scenery and the view from my bedroom - top floor at the front - was one of the best I have ever had. We meet as a group every year and our formal dinner on the Saturday night was also one of... More

Visited the hotel tea room as part of a day out on the steam railway. Externally the hotel and tea rooms looked good and had a definite alpine look and feel but went inside to find tables covered in plastic tablecloths, sofa with dirty cover, pool table that looked completely incongruous and yellow walls, that made the place look like...

Came as part of a group. Food was ready and waiting on the table as we arrived. Soup hot and nourishing, staff young and willing. Second visit and will gladly come again to this peaceful location. Ideal place to watch natural history (including Red Kites). They seem to welcome visitors from ramblers, to bikers to cyclists.

Myself and my boyfriend visited Devil's Bridge at the weekend. When we got there we had been travelling for quite some time so thought it best we have a cup of tea and a snack before we started looking around the area. The only place to visit was the tea rooms. It wasn't busy at all, we were the only... More

I only experienced the Tea Rooms whilst visiting Devil's Bridge for the afternoon, but if the hotel is to the same standard it isn't up to much. If a venue is described as a "Tea Room", generally one would expect it to have homely charm, comfy chairs and an array of tempting cakes. What you actually get is a gloomy... More

I didn't know the area at all, but was meeting friends here. The Devil's Falls walk is breathtaking, and the steam train into Aberystwyth was scenic and fun. The rooms weren't spectacular, but I've paid a lot more elsewhere for not that much better. And the view from the window was wonderful. A whole group of us had dinner together... More

We booked this hotel as a late booking. We loved it. The decor is tired but that was part of the charm - hope the owners are never tempted to change it. food was well cooked and prepared - good ingredients. views spectacular. Room comfortable and spotless. One telltale sign of how the owners care is that the corridors were... More
