I'm not one of those fortunate people who can 'sleep anywhere' - how comfortable a bed is matters a lot to me, and I'm happy to report that the one in the single room at the top of the house, overlooking the beach, was beautifully and dreamily comfy. Top marks! The compact room was well-designed to fit bed, washbasin, clothes-hanging...

Yr Hafod is a wonderful B&B for many reasons. John seems to have taken the pulse of travelers and answered all their concerns. Parking across the street is free. For a sense of security, there is the keyless entry pad. The ensuite twin was roomy, well lit and had an additional sink/counter in the bedroom. The bathroom is sumptuous. The...

Situated on the front with parking available outside the door, this is a great place to stay. It's also across the road from the castle and just a few minutes walk from the restaurants and pubs in the town centre. There is a variety of types of rooms available with a lovely new shower room for those who are sharing....

For the single traveller Yr Hafod is a great budget option. The room was clean and fresh as was the linen and bedding. The shared shower room and toilets were new and of high quality too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

A wonderful experience in this immaculately kept guest house. Warm welcome, a room with a stunning view of the sea and a hearty breakfast, made our two night stay a total pleasure. Our courteous host, John, could not have been more helpful and we fully intend to stay with him again.

We stay with John every year. It's the little things that make a difference. It's spectacularly clean, the towels smell of softener and not bleach, like at the big hotels. The rooms are very well appointed and cleaned daily. John is the icing on the cake, he's very welcoming, helpful and funny and gets the balance of guest banter and...

The accommodation is maintained to a very high standard. The host is exceptional, and cares sincerely without being obsequious. To top it all, the genuine sea view from the rooms at the front makes for a proper holiday experience.
