We stayed in the room which over looked the extractor fan and seagulls nests both of which are problematic. The bathroom door still has a hole in it with tape over ,althought the tape is peeling off! there was no toilet roll holder or anywhere to hang clothing in the bathrooom, also there was no hairdryer or iron available although advertised

on the plus side the rooms and bedding were clean but a VERY basic room

we needed to make an early start the following day well 8am we were informed that breakfast was only served between 8.30 and 9am .! ...no good to us.........as we had an appointment at 9am some 15 miles away. On requesting an earlier breakfast we were told 8.15 would be the earliest they could accomodate ( grudgingly). The following morning in order to speed thisngs upi we checked out prior to breakfast in oder to just leave when we had eaten, however the person who was cooking had nt arriveded at 8.05 so i assumed breakfast would be late and we left without it !!

Had dinner in the pub was a regular Brains brewery meal ...ok but not great

I suppose you get what you pay for?


if you do try this pub

Room Tip: go somewhere else

We stayed here on a last minute whim. Really good price compared to other hotels in area. Was a little unsure about being above a pub, but room is clean, quiet and no faults at all. Would recommend if you want to stay in Aberareon

Read tripadvisor before going and had some reservations after reading the negative reviews. But when we arrived it couldnt have been any further from our own experience - it was a fabulous stay.
We checked in very quickly by a very friendly member of staff who explained about dinner and bfast and also access in/out the hotel via a back entrance when the pub is closed.
The room was basic but had all the amenities we needed - tea,, coffee, biscuits, shower, wardrobe with hangers and a flatscreen tv - although the reception on the tv wasnt perfect but we werent there to watch tv. We stayed in room 7 and had a lovely view over the river and the port.
Bfast was faultless - brilliant greeting by a really friendly lady and was served straight away.
We thought the pub would be too loud of an evening but it wasnt too bad.
We'd definitely recommend a visit to the HarbourMaster restaurant for an evening meal.
I believe the negative views were possibly because they were expecting it to be a hotel when it is an Inn - see the chain's brochure.
We will be returning in the future as we really enjoyed our stay and the location.

I had to admit I was leery about staying above a pub. However, the room was very clean and comfortable. There was a separate entrance to the rooms. You didn't have to walk through the pub. And there was no noise from the pub. We had a tasty full breakfast in the restaurant in back of the pub. Free parking in nearby public lot.

Upon arrival we were shown to our room, the hotel itself initally appeared ok, until we entered the room! Situated directly outside our window were to very large industrial extractor fans from the kitchen below making an extreemly loud rumble. As we had been travelling for over 4 hours we would have liked to rest/sleep before heading out to the countyside so we decided to ask for a change of room. The receptionist reported that all guest had checked in and no rooms were available, approx 10 mins later other guests arrived to book in to apparently allocated rooms?
Unable to tolerate this terrible din we decided to seek alternative accomodation in the town only to be told by the bar staff that they were not willing to refund our fee.
We asked to speak direct to the manager only to be told that she is busy with her paperwork! The staff were extreamly unhelpfull and were unwilling to help resolve in anyway.
Besides the unhelpful staff and noisy room we also found the room grubby with dirty paintwork, a hole in the bathroom door which had been covered up with sticky tape and no lock, and directly outside the window were dozens of nesting pigeons!
To keep this brief we spoke to the manageress in the morning only to be told what do we expect its not a hotel just a pub with rooms! We were also over charged for the room and after numerous calls and E-mails to the manageress, area manager and head office our funds were returned. We are still awaiting a courtesy call back from the area manager Eddie Wing who continuously ignored our calls. Terrible service all round.
