We stayed for 3 nights on a Travelzoo deal, which was very good value. So far as the hotel is concerned, we could not have asked for more. Everybody was friendly with excellent service. The breakfast and evening meals were very good. The room was comfortable with everything provided (we did not upgrade to a larger room and our room...

We stayed at the Penhellig for two nights for bed breakfast & evening meal. We had a suite which was great, lovely view along the coast & very quiet. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive. We can't fault it & look forward to going back soon.

Just returned from another mini break at the Penhelig & we love it! We stay in one of the Bodhelig Rooms just above the hotel, which is a pure treat. Loads of space, huge bed, lots of tea, coffee, fresh milk etc., luxury towels, luxury toiletries, & well just luxury! Fantastic views across the estuary- can even watch the sunset...

I came to Penhelig Arms at night and haven't expected a lot. The room I get here was lovely, elegant, and far beyond my expectation. When I woke up at the morning first thing I discovered was amazing view at the sea. A breakfast served from 8 o'clock kept me in great mood since I have been offered few menus...

We booked a two night break in a town we had not visited for over thirty years and were very pleased to find how well operated this small pub-with-rooms is. The room we were given was on the second floor up quite a narrow staircase so would not be great for anyone who struggles with stairs but was no problem...
