This is a real gem. The food and atmosphere are great. We stopped for lunch and had a seculded table overlooking the harbour in this quaint town. It was almost like private dining but with the hubbub of the main restaurant nearby. The staff are warm, friendly and efficient. The food was fresh and well cooked - without doubt some...

We went in for breakfast whilst visiting Aberaeron for the day. Wonderful selection and very reasonably priced. Service was really great although we were challenged on our order because the young lady clearly felt we couldn't manage the quantity of bread we ordered - BUT WE DID! 😀 Beautiful Welsh rarebit, and perfectly poached eggs.

We stopped there for a birthday lunch. The food was very good and quite reasonably priced. The only downside was it was very busy, which was surprising for a weekend in the middle of winter, but also a good review in itself.0

We have been wanting to visit the Harbourmaster for a while but has always been to busy which is always a good sign. We managed to get a room which wasn't up to the standard we are used to. We ate here too and must say the food wasn't great, my wife did enjoy her starter and I must say...

A really lovely boutique hotel with restaurant and adjoining bar. Was here last year but only dined in the restaurant. So next opportunity booked to stay in the hotel. The two rooms booked were Cadwgan & Madonna Suite, both were absolutely lovely with great views of the harbour. Dinner & breakfast in the restaurant was perfect. The bar has a...

We have just arrived home after spending 4 days at The Harbourmaster it was fab,from the moment we arrived,the young but very well trained staff couldn't have been any more helpful,polite and fun. We spent the first afternoon sitting on the harbour wall with a glass of red wine and a cheese board sheer bliss on a mild January afternoon....

Fabulous meal 😁 Served by Kieran, who was the most courteous and helpful waiter we have encountered in ages . We chose the cockles and the squid as starters , which were DELICIOUS . Decor and atmosphere was perfect. Can't recommend highly enough . So, so pleased with the evening 😁

I have eaten here many times on a Sunday and really rate their rare roast beef lunches. They also have an eclectic selection of draft beers. However yesterday, a Thursday, I called in for lunch and was severely disappointed. I ordered one of the specials, a beef bourginion featuring brisket beef. I was imagining having to eat the delicate beef...

Went here on a weekend away on good recommendations. Didn't disappoint. Sat in the bar area on a Saturday lunchtime. Bar is beautiful with good variety of craft lagers and beers. Specials board is exciting and the main menu is more than generous. Would return for any occasion if back in the area.

We have 13 individually-designed rooms in three historic buildings - all with harbour views. In 2008 the warehouse was opened, providing a further 4 rooms. A harbour facing suite with panoramic views, two west facing sea view terrace rooms and a town view room suitable for disabled use.
