“Beautiful house, wonderful breakfasts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

We stayed here for 5 nights in mid August and we really enjoyed our stay. The house is full of character and guests have their own drawing room with comfy sofas and lots of books and games, Our room was the 4 poster room, with ensuite bathroom, and both rooms were very spacious and tastefully furnished. The breakfasts were excellent and Lynne made sure she offered a variety as we were there for 5 days. Lower Solva is a lovely small harbourside village and has plenty of places to eat (including a particularly good Indian restuarant at the back of The Ship) and I recommend booking ahead in the summer months. The Coastal path is easily accessible from the harbour and we walked to St David's in a leisurely couple of hours. We spent some evenings in St David's and recommend 'Cutch' and 'Morgans' for dinner.

Overall, an excellent B&B in a really good location.

We stayed at Williams of Solva in the middle of a two week cycling holiday in Pembrokeshire. It was without doubt the best place we stayed and worth the small amount extra you pay to get it, compared with other B&Bs. The room was fantastic, big and airy with a massive bed. The bathroom had a wonderful shower and a separate slipper bath. The breakfast was superb with a lovely bowl of mixed fruits prior to a wonderful cooked breakfast. It really is a world away from most B&Bs. On top of that, its in Lower Solva one of the prettiest places in a very pretty part of Wales. The village has three good pubs that all serve food, a decent restaurant and is a truly lovely place to stay.

This place may be slightly more expensive than other bed and breakfasts but it is so so much better than anywhere else we stayed. The people are really nice and have loads of local knowledge. The rooms are elegantly decorated and very well proportioned - I felt a bit out of place in my grubby walking gear! Breakfast is fantastic. I hope to come back soon and make this our base for more walking!

This was a good B&B. Mrs Williams is a fantastic host, pot of tea and warm welsh cakes dribbled in butter on arrival. Breakfast each morning was superb, fresh fruit with yogurt, muffins and crossiants and toast and then a choice of cooked, or as I had scrambled eggs and smoked salmon, yum! Really great location, five minute walk and your on the coastal path, and the bus can drop you back nearly to the doorstop. I marked it down as in our room there wasn't a stand up shower, which I have to have, but I know my Mum would have adored the cast iron bath! Also the bed wasn't very comfortable and creeked loudly!

Williams of Solva was one of our favorite B&Bs in a three-week trip through Wales. It's quite small but extremely comfortable, with beautiful decor and a luxurious bathroom. It manages to be stylish without being stuffy--there's a comfortable sitting room overflowing with books, and breakfast was excellent. No locks on individual bedroom doors (just the house--visitors are given keys), but we didn't feel they were at all necessary. The owners are friendly, and will give excellent advice on walks, restaurants, etc. A lovely B&B in a lovely little town, with access to the magnificent coastal path.
