This was my best stay on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path (and most of my accommodation was very good). I arrived at 7.30pm having walked all day in the pouring rain. The hostel owner, Steve, was very welcoming and chatty and even had a home-made stew waiting for me which was wonderful (and free!) – I think that was a special... More

My 5 days stay in Hamilton Backpackers hostel was a totally positive experience! It's a very cosy place, which is important for me! The landlord is chatty, openminded and very helpful! Eventhough the weather was not always perfect, the atmosphere in this small, clean and tidy hostel conributed to a really nice week in Fishguard. I will recommend it, also... More

Excellent for backpackers as well as other holidaymakers passing through. Laid back and comfortable . I've stayed on my own and with my wife and found hospitality second to none if your happy to do your own breakfast. Good stopping off place for ferry to Ireland. Not a usual BnB that I was used to but this adds to the... More

My friend & I were looking for a cheap weekend away so after doing some Googling we found this place. We were a bit anxious having read some of the negative reviews on here but were pleasantly surprised. OK so its not the Ritz but then again you aren't paying the rates of the Ritz either. We had a very... More

I stayed here at the start of June for a couple of nights and was pleased. It was well located for access to Fishguard. The beds were very comfy and high quality linned and duvets. The owner was attentive, calling to check a time for arrival and showing us where everything was. As a larger group of boys he left... More

I'm usually very flexible and easy to please with accommodation, but I think this place does not deserve all the good ratings it seems to get. Pros: Excellent location for the town center and the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Very affordable. Simple breakfast included (cereals, toast and jam, tea and coffee). Free wifi but with an inconsistent connection. Cons: Very, very... More

We had a lovely stay at the Hamilton Backpackers. Steve, who runs it, is very friendly, and gave us really helpful suggestions about what to do with our time in Pembrokeshire. The place is informal, with no curfew and free access to a shared kitchen, with breakfast food available to help yourself. We stayed in the double en suite, which... More

What a nice place to stay when walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path! A no-nonsense place with cozy, spacious and comfortable rooms. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is basic but it was all we needed! Highly recommended for the low-budget traveller!
