We stopped in 'The Crow's Nest' Room at the Lookout Hotel, Aberdovey for two nights on Bank Holiday Monday and Tuesday. We booked around two weeks prior to our arrival date, and spoke to Jules (the owner) via phone and e-mail. He was very helpful and was more than happy to answer any questions we had.
After travelling for the best part of three hours, we were delighted to arrive and find our room already set up and ready for us to go straight into, with fresh milk in the fridge and tea bags ready for a much needed cup of Tea. Jules met us on our arrival, and couldn't have been more helpful, providing us with information on cinemas, things to do and places to eat both in Aberdovey and the surrounding area.
The room was exceptionally nice, and having stayed in a variety of accommodations through various trips, would comfortable fall into the top 2! Stylishly designed with aspects of a real sea side feel, the comfortable sofas and bed made for a very relaxing venue following long days of walking along the beach or through the various 'small towns' in the area. The view from the breakfast bar was breathtaking, with the sea and beach being visible both from bed and the living space in the apartment. The bathroom was comfortable and nicely sized, with an exceptional shower!
As a couple, we found the room more than big enough for us, and the collection of cooking utensils meant we were able to prepare our own meal one evening. Jules & Lisa have thought of everything that could be required here for a nice relaxing stay, from a TV and Blu Ray player to a selection of DVD Games and Board Games! Lisa was also exceptionally helpful regarding giving us tips on the best places to park! With a little one on the way, Jules showed us 'the Upper Deck' apartment on our departure, which we will aim to stay in (as a family) in the coming year or so!
Very Highly Recommended!
