Really love this hotel. I think the staff do a great job and the food, service and tranquility is something that really sells it. Both visits I have had have been with work, however I would not hesitate to use this hotel should I holiday in Wales. I'm even contemplating a weekend away there if there are any offers on.

Great central location for many surrounding towns and villages and country walks too.

Room Tip: If possible, get the room with the Well built in to the floor. Its amazing. Just don't watch the...

I booked the two of us in at the restaurant for a special Valentine Day evening meal. From entering reception, to the bar and the restuarnt all the staff were friendly & welcoming.The restaurant space was excellent, we were really comfy. We chose from an exciting menu offering a 3-course meal, plus a strawberry sorbet after the starter. All the food was excellent. The restaurant staff were very attentive - over attentive? We will definitely go again soon - for the food!

Sorry can't review the rooms, as we didn't stay over - we were staying elsewhere in the area. I recommend Newcastle Emlyn town (were the Emlyn Hotel is) a lovely town in a little known part of Wales, perhaps 15 minutes from the Cardigan Bay coast and a good base if you like countryside.

Stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend - the reception staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were spacious and better than I was expecting and good parking facilities. The restaurant food was very good but unfortunately the dinner service was the only let-down on our stay. On the Saturday night there was a lot of serving staff all of whom stopped to ask how the food was. One or two interruptions is fine but I think we were asked no less than 7 times during our main. On the Sunday night there was only two staff which meant that there were little/no interruptions but there were some mistakes made with our orders. That said - would gladly stay again on account of the quality of the food itself and more importantly, the brilliant hotel staff who I cannot praise enough.

Newcastle Emelyn, a fabulous Welsh Market town, a gem actually ! Slap bang in the middle is Emlyn Hotel. Very friendly welcome, attentive staff. Much better than average room. Parking, wi-fi everything you need on business. Did not try restaurant or either bar but certainly oustanding value and I will certainly always re-visit on business and am sure this w make a first class base for a holiday in the area

The hotel has now got a new, separate, self-contained house to cater for groups, which was perfect for our needs. The owners, manager and staff could not have done more for us and our stag party of 11 had a fantastic time. The manager, Keith, completely understood our needs and was a superb host.

We stayed in this hotel for the New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball and what a treat it was! The five course meal, which was served to over 100 people was fabulous as was the service throughout. We danced all night to the talented Symphony Sid and Swing King's Band who were tremendous. The bedroom, albeit very hot which was quickly addressed by switching off the heating and opening the window, was comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast was good and the porridge with cream and cinnamon was heavenly! We would definitely return for NYE but sadly not next year as we already have plans. If we didn't have friends living in the town who we normally stay with, we would stay at the Emlyn without hesitation.
