“Another perfect stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Stayed here several times before and it never fails to impress. Just love this hotel and the area and can't wait to return. Breakfast is especially good. Also had dinner next door in the Harbour Master, again really good and a lovely atmosphere.

Room Tip: They are all good!

The moment we arrived and John welcomed us with tea and welshcakes, was the start of a great weekend. 3 Pen Cei is a lovely treat with great rooms and delicious breakfasts. Lesley and John are brilliant hosts and seemed really happy to chat and give us advice on the local area. If we could afford the luxury of the seaview rooms, we had a peek in and they were even better.

Everything about our stay was perfect. From Lesley's warm welcome (including freshly brewed tea & warm welsh cakes on arrival) to our luxurious & VERY spacious room (we stayed in Aeron) to the DELICIOUS breakfasts cooked by John (that set us up for the whole day) to the flasks of tea provided for our coastal walks (recommended by Lesley) - all in all a wonderful weekend combining fresh air by the coast with rest & relaxation. The reviews on TripAdvisor are well deserved as Lesley & John are delightful hosts who have created a haven for a perfect holiday. Thanks!

We have just enjoyed a wonderful 3 night stay at this lovely friendly B&B and cannot fault it. We were made to feel very welcome. On arrival our bags were taken to our room on the top floor. The room was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. I highly recommend the fresh fruit salad for breakfast. Just gorgeous!! As was the full Welsh, porridge & honey, poached egg on toast. The location is also superb. A faultless stay all around, highly recommended :)

Beautiful guesthouse overlooking the harbour at Aberaeron. The attention to detail is wonderful and the service excellent. We stayed in the Aeron room, which was elegant with quality furnishings, and the view of the harbour through the cottage window was lovely. Pen Cei is not cheap but it is great value for money and outclasses any 5 star hotel. The breakfast was superb and we wish we could have stayed longer, it was a true highlight of our three week trip.

Our second stay in the Ystwyth room in 18 months.

Again; very comfortable, very hospitable, very tasty breakfast, very good location. What more do you want?

Strongly recommend. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Aberaeron, which is a great base to explore the Ceredigion coastline and countryside.

Room Tip: I understand Ystwyth is the smallest room, but it was perfect for our needs. Nice ensuite with showe...
