Average room which was warm and clean with fresh towels and tea & coffee facilities. A little noisy due to the extractor fan outside although receptionist asked us if we wanted it turning off it wouldn't be a problem. Lovely village with picturesque harbour. Enjoyable breakfast and evening meal.

We paid £60 and were unfortunately given room 2 - a room with a view of the alleyway beside the kitchen & rooftop which was home to cooing pigeons - with the expel air from the kitchen pumping disgusting fumes directly outside our window and groaning from 8 am- 11pm Tired and grubby shower and carpets that hadn't been vacuumed...

Monachty is a busy pub with rooms. Its in a great location, just on the harbourside and near to anywhere you need to go to in town. The rooms (I stayed in R2) are basic and a bit tired and at £60 per night (over the bank-holiday weekend), a bit pricey for what they are. Good breakfast, although the staff... More

Brilliant location by harbour. Cooked breakfast was superb and the staff are really friendly. Cleanliness of room let down the overall experience, which could be easily rectified. Car park next door is free of charge but very busy during the day.

My friend and I booked at short notice at this hotel in Aberaeron. We were given the family room which was ideal for our needs with one large room with a double bed and a single, and a second room with a further single bed. So we had separate bedrooms! :-) The room was clean and the beds were comfortable,... More

Having read previous reviews before setting off to Aberaeron I warned my husband not to expect too much. But my fears disappeared once we arrived at Monachty. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic as expected but clean and the views were amazing. We decided on having our evening meal at the restaurant too, very good... More

We stayed here last week and received a very good welcome from all the staff. We were shown to our room, and it was perfectly functional. Smaller than a Travelodge, and we were told it had a dodgy shower, but found it worked ok. The bed was reasonable, but sunk a little. The view was of the street across. Breakfast... More

Booked over the phone and was told of a discount on the room. Normally £60 for a single but with the discount and not wanting a breakfast I could have the room for £40. Bargain I thought,I'II take it. Good job I did'nt want the breakfast. I was told it was served from 0900hrs. No good for the working man... More
