We decided to go away for New Year and after looking at numerous hotel offers, we opted for the Gadlys because it was sensiblly priced and we'd also stayed 6 years ago during a very hot summer. We arrived the day before New Years Eve on a cold wet windy day and were given a warm welcome by Pat. We had Room 3 which is the lovely four poster room and looks out on the nice front garden and has a sea view to the right. To ensure we were extra snug on such a cold weekend, Pat advised she had put a heater in the room alongside the heating being on and also put flannelette sheets on the bed so we'd be nice and cosy. After unpacking we went down for a late lunch and even though the Chef had left as lunch was just over, nothing was too much trouble for Pat and she kindly made us soup and sandwiches. In the evening we ate in the hotel bar after remembering the food was so good last time we stayed and again, we weren't dissapointed. The Lamb Shank and home made Steak & Kidney Pie were hearty and delicious and the home made Bakewell Tart is to die for. The cooked breakfast next morning was good and you can choose your options if you can't manage the full works. We were surprised to find we were the only guests staying in the hotel for the New Year Deal however on New Years Eve, the locals and Pat & Paul's friends arrived so there was a good gang of us and a great night was had by all. We were made to feel very welcome both by our hosts and their visitors and the buffet and hagis at midnight were delicious. The evening was rounded off by fireworks and a raffle, which ensured every couple got a prize and after a quiz and everyone then playing card games we eventually got to bed at 2.00am. As last time, we found our break very relaxing and thank Pat and Paul for looking after us as we will definitely stay again because we love the Gadlys old style country house charm. We've had no complaints on either of our stays but if we were to raise any points, it would be just 2 minor things in that a heated towel rail or small radiator in the bathroom would be a good idea particularly in winter and the mattress on the bed could maybe do with replacing sometime this year as even though it's comfy, it felt very soft and worn and was quite low. However, these are only minor things and would certainly not stop us from staying in that room again.
Camaes Bay as a whole is great little get away from it all place for a weekend as it's not too touristy and there a couple of nice walks from the hotel, which take you into the village and on to the beach. There is another hotel in the village called The Harbour which also do good meals as well as a traditional little pub, which has an upstairs porch filled with hanging baskets in the summer and makes a lovely place to sit and enjoy a drink whilst looking over the bay. Benlech Bay is also close by car and has a nice cliff-top walk which leads you to a pub meaning you can stop for lunch then walk back along the beach and Molferi is a lovely little place to visit and again has a nice village pub and a walk which takes you to the cliffs alongside the life-boat station.
