“Great b & b in lovely location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Arrived at Gwennaul later than we expected due to a road closure, but were soon revived by a huge pot of tea and a slice of Kerry's delicious home-made cake. What a welcome!
Kerry and Dave are the perfect hosts, nothing is too much trouble for them.
Gwennaul is a delightful B & B, situated down a quiet lane off the main road into Aberaeron, yet a 10-minute walk either along the nearby coastal path or the road takes you into the centre of town.
Our bedroom was spotlessly clean and we found the bed very comfortable. Nothing nearby to disturb you, so you are assured of a good night's sleep (check out the elaborate folding of the towels in the bathroom, we have never seen anything like this before!)
Very impressed with breakfast. A good variety of cereals, fresh fruits and yoghurts. The full English is brilliant, or you can even have a breakfast baguette, but be warned, the portions are very generous!
If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Aberaeron, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gwennaul.

The information center hooked us up with this establishment. We had no expectations and we were thrilled with the place. As soon as we arrived Dave brought out a tray of hot beverages and pastries. It made us feel special and welcomed. The room was very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was very spacious and very clean. Breakfast was a choice of cereals, yogurt and fresh fruits followed by of hot meals options. When we asked where the laundromat was they offered to do our laundry for us. Way beyond our expectations. We were only going to stay one night but decided this b and b was too good to leave so we stayed a second night. The house is a short walk to the beach, coastal path and town. It is on a quiet lane and although there are no views (aside from the rugby club and you can twist your head and see the sea) it doesn't matter. All b & b's should adhere to the same standards as Gwennaul. The hosts are fantastic. We highly recommend this b & b.

Room Tip: Only two rooms. Either one will work.

We only stayed one night but would certainly stay again if we get the chance to visit the area. very welcoming friendly hosts and Kerry is superb at cake making!! Lovely slice of cake and cuppa on arrival- nice touch after a journey. Room was spotlessly clean with all facilities needed. Nice quiet location but within easy walking distance to the town. Breakfast was superb and beautifully cooked. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: spotlessly clean and all essentials provided

Gwennaul is in a lovely quiet location close to the beach for wonderful views of the bay, about a 10 minute walk along the beach or a short drive into Aberaeron. You are assured of a very warm welcome from Kerry and Dave with a tray of tea/coffee and some very tasty cake on arrival. We have stayed here for the 5th time and will be back again regularly, it is spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds, lovely fluffy towels, and a very good breakfast choice. There is ample parking.

This little B&B is a real gem with nothing to find fault with and in a lovely location. Spotlessly clean, bed very comfy, fluffy towels and quality bed linen. Wonderful selection for breakfast using the very best ingredients (and you don't have to choose the night before as in some B&Bs!). Kerry and Dave are friendly and helpful, going out of their way to assist with anything, without making a fuss. Enjoyed the homemade cake. No wonder we have been a few times and will be going again!

For us "Gwennaul" is the perfect B&B. And we should know!! We've already been staying there for two years in a row. And though we had agreed to give Wales a miss this year ... we are not so sure anymore. It's this time of year when you start planning your next holiday. In fact this is the reason why we are writing our review this very moment. To say thank you for two wonderful stays at "Gwennaul" and the beautiful town of Aberaeron.

"Gwennaul" is situated on the fringe of Aberaeron. There's a path from behind the house to the seaside and after a short walk you end up at the harbour. Right opposite you look upon the colourful row of Georgian houses Aberaeron is so famous for.
We've come to love these coastal paths in Wales. We walked from Aberaeron to New Quay last summer and it was worth every minute. Also within easy reach (should you have a car) is the bay of Llangranog. The views from the surrounding cliffs are breathtaking. And don't miss the stately home of Llanerchaeron!
There's so much to see ... and so much we haven't seen yet. So chances are we will be back sooner than planned.

Kerry and Dave Edwards are great hosts and they provide an excellent service. The rooms are tastefully decorated, the beds are very comfortable and everything is spotlessly clean. Last but not least Kerry conjures up magnificent full breakfasts!!
But there’s more to this place than just extremely good value for money. It is authentic hospitality and friendliness all the way. Kerry herself is the "smile of the sun".

As said before: "Gwennaul" is highly addictive and so is Kerry's walnut gateau ... -:)

This place is a little gem.

If you want an exciting, high action, all singing and dancing holiday, this is just the place where you need to stay to get away from all that noise, for a good night's sleep followed by a breakfast that will set you up to take on whatever the day has to throw at you.

Gwennaul means "Smile of the Sun", and this certainly reflects the friendly welcome received from Kerry and Dave.
