please bear in mind this isnt a review of the hotel however i have eaten many times at the resterant which is called The Flatrock the food is fine although nothing special but its not expensive and provides for a nice enough meal out and apart from perhaps the nearby Cliff Hotel then The Flatrock boasts one of the most amazing views you will ever find from a resterant will be back

This is a great little hotel with a with a great down to earth restaurant. The service is friendly and efficient. The restaurant and terrace have great views over the estuary. With the occasional seal,flights of wild geese and spectacular sunsets these are very very good surroundings to be in.

I felt welcome at this hotel as soon as I went into reception. Although very busy, the staff promoted a relaxed atmosphere, and could answer any questions. Our room had a magnificent view over the Teifi estuary, with easy chairs in the bay window where we could relax and watch the Canada geese fly past in formation. I did not want to play golf on this visit, but the facility was available. Walking along the clifftops and looking down at the coves was idyllic. Discovering the Ceredigion coastline by car was delightful. We were surprised to find the hotel's bistro so busy, even on a Monday and Tuesday evening. It is a recomendation in itself that so many local people like to eat at this venue. The only arae for improvement I would comment on would be to tidy up the area outside the kitchen which is in contrast to the rest of the hotel, as vents, etc. are visible to anyone using the car park. The car park can get busy when the bistro is in full swing in the evening, but it is in the process of being extended. Looking forward to my next visit.

It really is a beautiful part of the world with little beaches and bays tucked away. The hotel was on the other hand not that great. I would expect more for somewhere that charges about £100 a night (2 people sharing).

We had a baby with us and hence a travel cot, but there was not enough room to swing a cat. Also the shower room was dusty and dirty with mould and that pink bacteria stuff (Serratia marcescens?) growing in there.

The people were lovely and friendly. The food seemed nice and the restaurant is very popular, but there are only about a dozen parking spaces so you may end up parking all the way up the hill in the evenings as people eating in the restaurant/bar usually fill up the car park.

We arrived with friends for a chillout week-end after a hectic coupleof weeks.
The location was superb. Wonderful views fom the rooms , restaurant and verandah over the estuary and the sea. Great sunset!
The staff were very welcoming and rooms comfortable and nicely decorated.
Standard of service was excellent with good choice of courses in a busy but efficient restaurant.
This was confirmed by the number of local diners visiting as well as residents .
Certainly one to recommmend.

It was Ok but no bath in bathroom only rickety shower module, carpet under bed had not been hovered for a long time, bed under valance dirty and very marked by black shoes, service a bit ‘slap-dash’ in bar and restaurant, (Wine not poured from bottle for tasting – just plonked on the table etc etc.) Service for breakfast very slow one day only to have the boiled egg dropped on the floor when it did arrive, kept finding fire door on our top floor landing wedged open, landing light not working but was quickly replaced, hotel seems to be run by 1/2 young girls!
