“Lovely relaxing weekend”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Beautiful old world inn, not long been re-furbished. Lovely room with king size bed, air con and a great view over the Dovey Estuary. Situated in the town of Aberdovey, great if your into biking, walking or just looking to chill out. Only down side was that we were unable to book a table for an evening meal, as it was first come basis, so i would recommened you aim to either eat around 6.30 - 7 or 8.30 - 9. Food was to a high standard and staff were very helpful. All together a lovely relaxing weekend.

Room Tip: All rooms here are of an excellent standard

We stayed in a family room (number 3) which was clean, comfortable, had a sea view and great breakfast all for £80 which is great value.There was a door between our beds and the childrens beds which meant we could watch TV and chat after the kids had gone to bed rather than read books by torch light!

Room Tip: Number 3 had a sea view and a seperate bedroom for the kids.

We stayed for two nights in this very popular Inn. The location is lovely. Ian and Fay were excellent hosts, the staff and service was very good and the breakfast was well worth geting up for. A very nice place to stay would recommend.

Stayed with Ian an Fay for 2 nights. Couldn't have asked for a better time. Nothing was to much effort and even though there was more water falling from the sky than i suspect was in the sky in the estuary the sun was def shining in the hotel.
The staff obviously have the same work ethics as i found them to be in the same ilk as Ian and Fay.
Well done i would highly recommend this as a venue for a short break.
A wealth of local knowledge as well.

Rooms could be OK if everything worked. The first room we tried the TV wasn't working. The second room they moved us to the AC wasn't working - these rooms need AC - they are very stuffy (even in October) and the windows don't open. Otherwise the front rooms have a nice view. Be warned - the food is terrible. Typical English pub food at its worst.

Aberdovey is not the busiest of places in October and the various 'eateries' seemed to be suffering end of season interest in passing customers so we headed to the Dovey Inn. The place was not over busy. After ordering, it took 30mins for the uninspiring food to arrive. Once you have paid, you have little choice but to wait! One meal was returned immediately as the chips were (at best) soggy and tepid. It was very low grade 'pub grub'. The service was average. Regulars and locals were warmly greeted by the staff of the Dovey though they seemed uninterested in day trippers who they assume won't return. Pity. We will be in the area again in a week with grandchildren and will probably look elsewhere.
