Had a lovely stay with kristina and her dog toby. You need to look past the downstairs if ye oldie is not for you but the accomadation is brilliant. Very clean and well looked after. Kristina put a extra bed in for us and could not do enough. The breakfast was very nice and didn't rush us to come down.... More

We (2 adults, 2 boys) sheltered here for one night between camps. Arrived bedraggled and probably smelly to a lovely welcome from kristina and toby (jack Russell). Left next day after lovely baths, breakfast and laundry feeling revitalised and looked after. Great advice on an early evening walk, good ice cream, and the right pub. Nice paintings, low key, easy... More

We stayed here for five nights. When we arrived we were met by Kristina and her faithful friendly dog Toby. Kristina was very accommodating, offering help and information wherever possible. Although we did not have a dog, it is obvious that this is a dog friendly hotel. The room we stayed in was of a good size with a large... More

We stayed 3 nights with the lovely Kristina and Toby the dog. Our room was immaculate, with super comfy bed and a bang up to date en-suite. Breakfast was a perfect start to the day, with particularly fine sausages. We also were given welsh cakes and choice of mueslies and cereals before our cooked breakfast, just as well there were...

Genuine welcome and friendliness at Cartref Hotel. Very convenient for town and facilities. Christine was great to talk with and very helpful. Excellent breakfast. The room was compact, but gave us everything we wanted. Christine was helpful with parking and also use of her garage for my bike. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

Located on the main drive through town, this little hotel, rather B&B is similar to visiting Grandmas house complete with antique like chairs blanketed in a shabby-chic look, historical prints and plastic flowers, complete with old smells and a dog. It is very dated and dining room and part of the reception is cluttered with travel brochures and advertisement pamphlets... More

Alarm bells were ringing when you booked my last room (probably the last in Fishguard as it was late May Bank Holiday and the Folkfest was on) and you were talking of cobwebs and allergies... However, I arranged you to have a room where dogs don't go. Your selective observation did not notice the original paintings I do have hanging... 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
