We brought two of our grandchildren to this hotel for an overnight stay - we opted for the family room which was spacious had fabulous views and an en-suite. The restaurant is very popular for visitors and locals with a good choice of food for both adults and children. It is an old building so the staircases are very narrow.... More

Food not great the stick toffee and the fondant where dry and microwaved i guess and the toffee sauce was clearly burnt but the view and service made up for it.very good communication and polite. The parking man only shows up once a week, so free parking if your there at the right time.

Spacious room with comfy bed and pillows, settee and chairs, dressing area,large bathroom with shower and bath. Our own terrace area with chairs,and fantastic views of the estuary. The room was well thought out, plenty of sockets in the right places,... More

Stayed here this weekend (8/7/16) for 2 nights and I literally can not fault it! We were driving from Portsmouth and seriously underestimated the time it would take to travel there, however we rang the hotel and said we were going to be later than the latest check in time, they were very accommodating and reassured us that our key...

We stayed in the Bodhelig part at the back, for one night after a cycle event. Absolutely perfect room, setting, view and breakfast. Will definitely return! The apartment is very spacious and well equipped. You have a private terrace or balcony and crucially in packed Aberdovey a parking space. Love it here!

The hotel came highly recommended by Wales Golf Holidays as the perfect location for our golfing party of 21. How right they were!! Superb accommodation, in both the main hotel and the latest addition, the adjacent Bonhelig suite, with all rooms providing uninterrupted views of the estuary. Excellent menu, plus the daily specials menu ensured all tastes could be accommodated.... More

My last two seperate visits have been spoilt by appalling customer service, they have no idea how to treat their customers. The setting and decor is lovely and the food is excellent, just need to sort out the way they handle customers. The first visit we were made to move tables as we were sitting in the wrong one, even... More

Perfect, and what made my stay were the people – they could have not been more helpful. Not forgetting the view, comfortable rooms and delicious food - the best steak that I have eaten in ages and the chunky chips, though a little indulgent, were divine.

Visited with my partner, managed to get a table outside so we could enjoy the weather. The view was lovely and the staff were really helpful. My husband ate the fish & chips and I had the surf & turf. The chips were proper chips, fluffy on the inside and nice and crisp. My husband enjoyed his piece of fish.... More
