Great hotel in a great location.Plenty of free parking and lovely clean,large room for 3 of us.Bathroom beautiful.Breakfast was tasty and plenty of it. Only thing I would recommend is take earplugs if you are a light sleeper like me. Would definitely stay here again though.

I stayed here for two nights in a twin room. Accommodation was clean and comfortable with all of the usual b&b touches. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Very nice bar with great food. Breakfast was good with my only gripe being incredibly small plates. On arrival we did find a wet towel on the floor of our room... More

The hotel is central to the town with a short walk to shops,pubs and the few restaurants. There is a car park - it is a funny shape but there were enough spaces but it may be a bit tight in high season. There is free parking around the village green just outside the hotel. The castle and beach and... More

They skipped no detail, made a necessary room change when the bathroom was not suitable, knew how to find a mechanic when we had a flat tire, knew the area for touring questions. In all respects they made our trip exceptional.

We called in for lunch and did not stay at the hotel. The bar area was nicely furnished with leather chesterfield settees, tables and chairs – but it was just that – a bar. At least the locals were friendly and let us join in with their conversation while they were drinking at the bar! Our beef “roast of the... More

We found this hotel through a roadside advertisement. It is set on the village green and, although a hotel with 46 rooms, we just wanted a quick lunch. We had the roast of the day, which was beef with Yorkshire pudding and three vegetables and roast and new potatoes. The gravy was particularly nice. Although this is traditional pub fare... More

I would recommend this hotel to anybody and everybody. The staff are incredibly friendly and can't do enough to help, whatever you need they will do their best. I have come with an elderly lady who has limited mobility and everyone is so helpful. The rooms are easily accessible mostly, we are currently sharing a family room which admittedly the... More

I booked this hotel as a last minute decision while touring through Wales as we wanted to stay away another night. We managed to get the last room for 3 people and when we arrived we were quickly checked in. The room was lovely, well decorated and maintained with a lovely bathroom. The entrance area to the hotel was nice... More

The hotel was lovely and situated central in the town. The service in the hotel was excellent, staff were friendly and polite, they made the hotel feel homely, especially as the weather wasn't great. It was a lovely weekend, however the wifi couldn't connect in the bedroom out in the small cottage. But otherwise it was great time.
