I stayed here for a short holiday to review the area. The owner was very helpful and I had a key to come and go. Loved the little dog. The small single I had was immaculate and had a modern new bathroom, television and ample space for me. The breakfast was delicious and got me ready for my days explorations.... More

Stayed at The Cartref Hotel after arriving on the midnight ferry from Fishguard. The owner was waiting for us & settled us in with a friendly welcome. We booked a twin room which was recently refurbished and a high standard. It was large and airy with a big ensuite shower room and had everything necessary for a comfortable nights rest.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights whilst visiting this corner of Wales for a friends' wedding. We arrived late into the evening and Kristina was very welcoming and accommodating given the late hour. The room was a reasonable size which isn't always the case is an old building and it had all the amenities that... More

I was doing the Half Ironman in Fishguard, and needed a place to stay for two nights (I don't drive so I like to get to events the day before), and found this place on fairly short notice without needing to pay a deposit. There was also promise of a secure garage to lock my bike which swung it for... More

Well situated in Fishguard, the Cartref Hotel was comfortable and clean with modern facilities. Our 5 days was greatly enhanced by advice from a knowledgeable owner who sent us off each day with advice on the local area following an excellent breakfast. Convenient local Car Park (50yds) at 80p for 24hrs.

Owner was an eccentric lady but very smiley. First impression was terrible as there were papers strewn all over the reception desk. She had a lovely little dog but it seemed to be put behind a glass door a lot if the time which we thought was a shame for him. The room was an improvement as was very clean... More

I had trouble finding a room anywhere as the Fishguard triathlon was on, I think this was the last room in town. First impressions are poor as the reception is piled with papers and very messy. My room was fine though, a decent size for a single, nicely decorated with a good shower and excellent wifi. Breakfast was great, especially... More

Very good place to stay in the centre of Fishguard. Close to one excellent fish restaurant on Friday and Saturday nights only (the corner café during the day). Also a tiny real ale bar (Fishguard Arms) where there are interesting local characters (farm workers and fishermen) to talk to. The Finnish host landlady (Christina) was charming and gave me much...

Parts of the hotel are a trip back into pseudo Victoriana ie the lounge and entry area and parts are well modernised ie the breakfast room and bathroom. The lobby needs a big tidy up and de-cluttering as there were piles of papers, books and magazines everywhere and gave quite a bad impression on first entry. The room was ok,... More

Real old hotel with lots of charm, our finnish host was lovely and very helpful. We had a large bedroom and compact bathroom which we were happy with. The hotel was right in Fishguard, so made for easy walking. Our host recommended a lovely place for dinner-on the corner near the hotel-it is a bakery/café during the day BUT on... More
