Good b&b, very welcoming, nice clean room with all required amenities, breakfast was lovely, nothing too much trouble for Kriistina, her little dog Toby is gorgeous, and very well trained! Good value, nice atmosphere, would stay again.

We stayed here straight from the ferry and had no problem with the nearly-1am check in. The room was lovely, as was the breakfast the next morning. It's an ideal place to stay the night after the late ferry crossing instead of heading back through the night.

Cold, tired and in need of a room for the night, we discovered the Cartref. Having read a recent review I would say that yes, the reception is a little unorthodox but on being shown to Room 3 (facing front) it was modern, clean, warm and inviting. We found 'Toby' the Jack Russel a friendly distraction who was allowed to... More

I have stayed here a number of times with work. The hotel is centrally located in Fishguard and with a large supermarket over the road parking is easy. The owner also has some parking spaces round the back which she allowed me to use. Whilst I can see that the cluttered desk may put some people off I found it... More

I recently spent a week at the Cartref. The hotel is very handy for central Fishguard and only a short drive to the ferry terminal. I have absolutely no complaints about my room - it was clean and tidy with a comfortable bed and modern bathroom. My concerns centre around the communal areas of the hotel. The owner has a... More

Thank you for your frank review! I have had a very busy summer, the busiest ever in my twenty years in The Cartref, and some wonderful guests - and I was hoping to count you as one of them. My and Toby's sincere apologies that it didn't come to that. (Toby took quite a liking to you!) Anyway, even before... More

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

Thank you for your considerate review! It was a very busy weekend when you were here. I am always open to discuss prices but the truth is that running a small hotel has become more costly during the recent years, and you had a nice room with modern bathroom and a good view over the town with even a glimpse...

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.
