Phoned on the off chance after seeing other reviews and spoke to Bill. Booked us in no problem. Lovely guest house, nice clean room, very comfortable bed. breakfast was delicious and you must try the home made bread, jams and marmalade.Very good value for money

Our three-night stay here in late February included two days of rain; nevertheless, the very fine hot breakfasts got each day off to a warming start. The Arofsa shares its building with Manuka, an upscale restaurant. We wondered if the corner room we enjoyed, as it faces the inner harbor, might be a bit noisy in summer, but in chill,... More

We have just returned home after a four night stay at the Arosfa and would like to say what a lovely time we have had. we were made most welcome and nothing was too much trouble, lovely breakfast and a very comfy bed. We hope to sample their restaurant next time we visit.

I'm so pleased that you both enjoyed your stay in Arosfa and it would be wonderful to see you back again. We share this delightful harbourside property with Restaurant Manuka and you should definitely try a meal there next time, Sara the Chef/Proprietor has considerable Michelin experience and Manuka is very popular with the locals. Best wishes, Bill. More

We ended up staying here after being let down by another hotel (but that is another story..) We managed to book in to the Arosfa after driving around the area. The price of the room for two was £75 including Breakfast. Booked quickly into our room. Situated right opposite the pretty harbour and nearby the beach. The Guesthouse was quite... More

I'm very pleased that we were able to accommodate you and that you enjoyed your overnight stay at what was not the best of times for the weather. Arosfa is open throughout the year and maybe next time you visit during a quieter time you may like to take advantage of one of our seasonal offers which are so popular... More

A warm and heartfelt welcome by our friendly host. We had dinner in their attached restaurant and it was wonderful. Our room was actually 2 attached rooms, very comfortable. Breakfast was good and filling.

This was booked as a spur of the moment stay. The restaurant looked lovely so we went ahead for a night at the end of our holiday. Paid a deposit of £30 by card. Total cost over £100, for 2. The room was small and the furniture was mismatched and old-fashioned and the lighting was bizarre. Ensuite bathroom was small... More

What a splendid place. We were greeted, on arrival by Bill and what a delightful old school chap he was. We were made to feel extremely welcome and during the course of our stay nothing was too much trouble. Our room was spotless and individually furnished and homely. Cannot wait to revisit and would not hesitate to reccommend.

Stayed here for one night during a motorcycle tour of Wales. Bill was very friendly and welcoming, despite me interrupting the staff end of season party! Our twin room was a little unusual, but very nice. It seemed a little cramped but perhaps because there was so much crammed into it - perhaps the sofa is unnecessary? This is my... More

We stayed in Arosfa as part of a tour of Wales and absolutely loved it. The Guest House is very old fashioned, and the decor a bit dated, but this suits the Georgian buildings and adds to the homely feel. Our room was on the first floor looking directly out over the harbour and, with armchairs in the bay window,... More

It's always a treat to see people coming back to Arosfa and enjoying themselves. I'm pleased that you were able to take advantage of Arosfa's position on the Inner Harbour to stroll around and take in all that there is to see here. Looking forward to seeing you next time. Bill and the crew. More
