We had a lovely weekend staying at the carntref this weekend. Had a lovely welcome from kristiina after a long journey with our children. Our family of 5 stayed, my self, partner and 3 children aged 14, 7 & 5 were overjoyed with Toby the little jack Russell. He's a sweetheart. Upsets me to read negative things on here about... More

Thank you so much, we are so glad you were happy staying in the Cartref! You are certainly welcome back either in the Hotel or in our little cottage! Toby was initially brought up in a family with children and loves children. Best wishes and wagging tails from Toby and me. More

We arrived in Fishguard hoping to stay at a hotel near the harbour. This place let us down so we were stuck with no place to stay. We wondered around the centre and walked into the Cartef hoping they would have rooms. The owner was very welcoming and accommodating. Our room was lovely and clean and the bed very comfortable....

We spent one night at the Cartref Hotel in June 2016. The three of us were traveling on motorcycles and showed up soaking wet after riding in the rain all evening. Kristina didn't blink an eye at our dripping wet appearance (not every B&B is happy to accommodate wet bikers) and even let us park our bikes in her garage.... More

We stayed for one night in early June. Kristiina and Toby (Resident Hotel Hound) gave us a great welcome - I have seen other reviews which suggest some did not fall instantly for Toby but we are dog people so no problem there. Our room was small for a double. However, the shower room and loo looked to be brand... More

We were given a nice welcome, despite the barking dog! If you like little barking dogs you'll be delighted; if you aren't too keen, oh well! The hotel is conveniently situated and the staff were very helpful. The room was fine, but the public areas could do with a bit of a facelift. I thought it was surprisingly expensive, but... More

Thank you for your comments! Fortunately, most of our customers are dog lovers, and when Toby gets to know you, it's only wagging tails and cuddles! Of course, if there is a problem, he will be confined to his own quarters. More

Kristina welcomed me and my bicycle in the middle of heavy rain. This unexpected stay turned into a lovely evening (bubbly bath and comfy bed!) followed by a fresh full English made to order. I immediately felt very warm about the ladies working there and the dog -Toby. A place with a real character and personalised hospitality.

Needed a room for the night after a gig and this was just right. Comfortable room with all the usual fixtures and fittings: TV, tea, coffee etc. Nice shower. A parking spot at the rear was an added bonus. Reasonable price and a good nights sleep to boot. Full English breakfast was lovely and it was nice to meet 'Toby'... More

The Cartref proved to be the ideal stop-over location after the first of eight days walking the Pembrokeshire Coast Path - and proprieter Kristiina couldn't have made me more welcome. I received VIP treatment from my arrival on Sunday night until departure just after 7am next morning. Having walked from Poppit Sands for over 11 hours, I was tired and... More

Wasn't sure what this hotel would be like but was pleasantly surprised. Our room was very nice and comfortable with everything we needed. It was also really quiet despite our room facing looking down on the road. The beds had blankets and sheets and not quilts but we were warm as there were extra blankets. The TV did not work... More

Thank you for your review! This is the first I hear of a poor signal regarding the TV! I wish you had mentioned it to me - it was only a matter of tightening the aerial screw! Always, always tell of a problem to the owner - in most cases it can be rectified, and then everybody is happy. Very... More
