Stayed here whilst cycling round South Wales. Lovely welcome from the owner. A little old-fashioned but totally met our needs. Shower was amazing. Tea and coffee facilities were very good. The owner was able to provide a locked garage for our bikes. Beds were really comfy. Breakfast was extensive; lovely to have some Bara Brith. A bed and breakfast which... More

I just returned from a weekender to Fishguard from Ireland to spend some time in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This was an ideal place to stay. Below is just a quick recap of my experience to show why I truly loved staying with the Cartref. First, my ferry arrived very late at night - later than it was supposed... More

I have just returned from an adventure weekend in Pembrokeshire and we spent 2 nights at the Cartref Hotel. I was sharing with a friend so we stayed room 3 that was a twin. The room was comfortable and basic, and I don't say basic in a negative way; this is a 2* hotel so it was as expected, the... More

I spent seven nights in this lovely hotel in the centre of Fishguard. Kristiina went out of her way to make me feel at home and provided lots of local information re. places to visit/eat. There's free parking at the side of the hotel and an inexpensive car-park to the rear (75p per day and free overnight parking!) There's also... More

Visited here with my husband and our dog. Lovely warm welcome from Kristina. The room was spotlessly clean (as was the rest of the hotel) decorated in neutral colours with paintings of the area on the walls, tea/coffee, hairdryer and flat screen tv. The shower room was well equipped with a modern shower and soft, fluffy towels. Kristina will tell... More

I have recommended this hotel to several family members and friends, something a rarely do. I travel a lot with work and have never written a review for trip advisor as I have never really been as impressed as I have as when I stayed at the Cartref.I have stayed here several times and couldn't be happier with the service...

On our trip to the UK this year, my partner and 10 month old son decided to try and catch the ferry a day earlier than we had scheduled, so we got in touch with the ferry company and we moved out booking ahead to the 21:00 sailing from Rosslare to Fishguard. Knowing that the ferry arrives in late, and... More

I enjoyed having you, and your little boy's smile made my day! And you said that you enjoyed smaller personal hotels and were going to recommend the Cartref even to your parents! My data is safe but I am going to take your point and adjust my system accordingly to alleviate any doubts. You had a cot in your room... More

I stayed here for a night this weekend. I received a wonderfully warm welcome from the owner, who could not have been more helpful during my brief stay. The room was lovely, with what appeared to be a spanking brand new en-suite shower room. I don't really eat breakfast, but did have a really nice Welsh Cake (I may become... More

I stayed one night in this hotel with my two little dogs. I couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. It was a home away from home. The owner is a lovely lady and was very friendly and helpful.

At the end of a rainy week in January staying in nearby Newport our party of 2 adults, 2 toddlers and a large dog decided to extend our stay by 1 night in Fishguard. We stayed in room 12 at Cartref hotel. We had not read any reviews but chose the Cartref because of Kristina's warm welcome and because it... More

Thank you for your kind review! I certainly hope to see your family again in Fishguard! May I just add a clarification about the parking - limited parking by the side of the Hotel for 2-3 cars. But if your car is very long, then the public car park will be easier to move about! More
