“Brilliant welcome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Our two friends and ourselves enjoyed our weekend at the Monachty. The staff really welcoming and we particularly want to thank the chef. Our rooms overlooked the river and harbour respectively and although quite pleasant, did need a little t.l.c. Aberaeron is a beautiful little place, the Monachty is central, warm and welcoming. We probably would visit again.

Room Tip: Make sure you have a sea view and unless you particularly want a family room, choose a double.

Arrived in Aberaeron after realising that New Quay is for people who don't have one leg longer than the other or are four legged with bells round their neck. Tried at the Harboumaster but that was full so very pleasantly surprised to find the Monachty with a double room with a walk in shower. Car parking is just along the road and is free and as others have said the Monachty has the river running at the rear.

The accommodation is basic, clean and adequate. There are stairs going up from the bar and another short flight to room 3 where we were. There was no noise at night from the bar and just a little from the road but not enough to disturb sleep.

Our evening meal was quite superb, well served, hot, presented and wholesome. The Rev. James ale was exceptional quality even to the exacting standards of this CAMRA member. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

Breakfast was certainly something to set the day on; served hot with good coffee and toast.

All in all this Inn is highly recommended and a bargain in both food and accommodation. A credit to Brains.

We booked this accommodation after spending an hour following B & B recommendations from the information centre, and just happened across the Monachty. We were pleasantly surprised at the high standard of the accommodation, our room overlooked the little inlet and we saw the tide flowing and ebbing from our window. The room was large and clean and the atmosphere in the pub was friendly and welcoming. We ate our evening meal in the pub and the food was of a really good quality. Breakfast didn't disappoint, and even though we were only there one night, it felt as if we were family members. It was a very pleasant stay and would thoroughly recommend the Monachty.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel, they're larger

Bit unsure when I booked this but any concerns quickly forgotten. The Host was welcoming and the bar area attractive. The Reverend James was well kept and the atmosphere in the bar was friendly. The bedroom was tidy and clean and beds comfortable. All was capped by a first class breakfast. Well worth a visit and great value for money

Visiting a friend in Aberaeron stayed here 15th & 16th Sept 2013. The pub is newly painted pink, to fit in with the other properties in multi-coloured Aberaeron. The bar area is cosy with a wood burning stoveVisitors and locals are allowed to bring their dogs in here, watch Sky TV and eat. There is a large restaurant area at the rear of the bar, with an outside balcony seating area, as well as the downstairs outside seating area, overlooking the river and down to the harbour. Food was varied and cooked to order, there were also Chef's Special of the Day.

Room Tip: Rooms 6 and 7 overlook the river and towards the harbour at the rear of the property.

...... a pub with rooms. Lovely atmosphere in pub with very good value pub grub. The staff can't do enough for you. Excellent location on the harbour with free parking on doorstep. Rooms basic but have everything you need with coffee tea biscuits etc.
