Just got back from a long stay here and I could not have been luckier. I was involved in a 4 week placement at the nearby Welsh Mountain Zoo, and after my planned accommodation fell through, I had to search for a hotel 2 weeks before I was due to start. I was extremely lucky to hear back from Mike and Leslie saying they could offer me 4 weeks worth of accommodation for £20 per night, discounted as I was a student staying for long. Given this was during peak season, I was quick to snap it up.
The room was basic but clean and had a double bed, sink, tv, kettle with tea, coffee, sugar etc. The window was directly facing a block of flats but I still had a lovely view of the sea. It was a shared bathroom, but as most of the other rooms on the floor where en suite, there was never a problem to get into the bathroom. There was also another bathroom and separate toilet on the second floor. The bathrooms were newly decorated so looked modern and spotlessly clean.
Mike and Leslie are a friendly and warm couple that made me feel welcome, and always stopped to chat when I came home from work of a night. They allowed me to use the breakfast kitchen, so I could store food in the fridge, and get any cutlery or crockery I needed. They were also nice enough allow me to leave some of my stuff in my room when I went home of a weekend.
The hotel is adjacent to the beach and 5 minutes walk to the train station (where there is a zoo bus that takes you to the zoo for free). I found lovely a Chinese takeaway nearby, as well as a shopping precinct with a Morrisons, Costa and Iceland.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again as Mike and Leslie made me feel welcome and it is a lovely short break destination.
