We stayed here last weekend for 2 nights. On check in we told due to COVID. Restrictions we would have to book a time for breakfast. Which we duly did for 0945hrs. The following morning we arrived for breakfast and although the service was a bit shoddy, it was OK. The next morning we arrived for breakfast @ 0940, only to be told we were too Late, as the kitchen closes at 0930. Why the Hell would they book us in for 0945 ?? On check out , we queried this only to be told , we should of known breakfast ends at 0900 on Mondays. To our amazement , she still proceeded to charge us for Bed and BREAKFAST. As we had a 5 hour journey ahead of us, we had to stop in Cardigan to eat. We have since emailed the hotel, but we haven’t even had an acknowledgment never mind a reply. This situation has obviously arose due to a lack of staff training, or they simply don’t care. The way the whole episode was handlled was appalling. Hospitality has gone through a tough time, but to simply rip of the customers is totally unacceptable . I would definitely not recommend .

The location is ideal for us. Free parking place. Great place to stay. The view from the hotel terrace is absolutely stunning. The room was not big but enough for a couple. The food was good and tasty but a little overpriced and the same with drinks. We ordered a full British breakfast but was too salty for me (black pudding and mushrooms). I understand this difficult time (covid), but the staff looked too tense and a little hurried or rush, especially during the evening when we ordered dinner for two. This atmosphere didn't relax me and we can't fully enjoy the evening.

Stayed one night in room 11, which looked out over the estuary and we were able to watch dolphins feeding. The room was large with a queens bed. We found sleep difficult as the quilt was too heavy meaning we were far too hot. The big disappointment was the quality of the food. The enchiladas were just filled with chicken in a sweet BBQ sauce and no chilli. It was served with dauphinois potatoes, which was more like scallops with a bit a cheese between them. My wife had halloumi and salad but the halloumi was cut too thin and so leathery.

Dear stuartt333, We appreciate hearing your feedback and sorry that parts of your stay fell below expectations. It is great to hear that you got to watch the dolphins in the bay. With regards to the quilt, had this of been brought to our attention during your stay we could have changed this resolving the situation. We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your food, again we encourage all guests to let us know at the time in order to allow us the opportunity to rectify the situation, your meals could have been replaced or substituted. We have since launched our new winter menu where we have taken guest feedback on board and we hope that you make a return visit. Kind regards, The Gwbert Hotel Management Team

We had a family holiday with the dogs as we do every year in West Wales we stayed in the holiday house run by gwbert hotel what an amazing hotel, location, views. The house had everything plenty of bedrooms bathrooms 2 living rooms both spacious. And the added bonus of a 6 person hot tub that was basically a mini swimming pool it's huge. House was spotless on arrival so big you can get lost with all the rooms. Shower pressure is something else basically massaging really haven't got a bad word to say about the place. All of us enjoyed it and will definitely be returning here in the near future. Walking the dogs along the cliff hotel gold course you find some hidden gems like mini beaches we stopped for and early morning swim refreshing and if lucky enough spot some dolphins or seals.

We had a wonderful traditonal sunday lunch here. The hotel has a beautiful location and fantastic views across the bay. The food was traditional but really tasty and well cooked as in just right! The restaurant was busy and crowded which was a wee concern but they had opened windows and doors which kept it ventilated. I was really impressed with the service. They were very busy with lots of large family celebrations going on and yet they organised it like a military operation. The ordering was accurate and the food arrived in a timely manner and the attitude of the staff was friendly and warm even though they were working very hard. I can only congratulate the team both cooking and waiting staff. Thanks for an excellent job.
