Very warm, friendly and family run bed & breakfast. Very stylish and cosy furnished rooms. Breakfasts are freshly cooked and made to your request. Situated in a really pretty location next to a lovely scenic river which is a great walk. Have stayed their twice with our 2 children and already looking forward to our next visit !

Having been let down by the absence of B&Bs in Cardigan, we stumbled on this tearoom/b&b by chance. A closed down pub was converted to this business last year by Terry (now aged 70) and his wife. When most people at this time in life are winding down to the pipe & fluffy slippers, these two have set up a...

The hotel is clean and tidy but is let down by the old look. The river view rooms had a tiny view of the river but I wasn't particularly bothered anyway. With the dark brown doors/furniture the rooms look dated against the fresh look of the bedding. Breakfast was lovely and Terry is a great host.

Nothing like a proper afternoon tea and this one was did not disappoint!! Lovely set up, food and genuine service with a smile (oh and the hot chocolate was perfect, far too much cream and marshmallow!) We will be back

Wow! What a fantastic discovery! One rainy afternoon in Wales resulted in our having one of the best afternoon teas ever - Terry, Jan and Rhi were delightful and the food delicious! What a makeover and really good luck with their new ventures with providing evening meals! I'd definitely recommend and will be back next time I'm in Wales!

Wonderful! Terry was gracious as was his wife, very helpful. Room not large but it was just me and I didn't need large so booked #7- double. Very very clean, nice towels, nice linens, lots of pillows (big plus for me!) Common areas including outside deck area all seemed lovely, unfortunately I didn't stay long enough to enjoy- I will...

We visited this lovely tea room whilst staying nearby with friends. The owners have worked very hard (in retirement!) to turn this building into a superb tea room. If the bedroom accommodation is as good as the lounge/dining area they will be superb. The owners and staff were very friendly. The afternoon tea was an excellent "English" afternoon tea. It...

We were directed here by the owners of the only other hotel in the village. It seems that the villagers all help each other out. That give an insight into this little village. It was a brilliant place to visit, if only for one night. The owners, Terry and Jan, decided to retire to West Wales, 'good idea' they thought...
