Such lovely hosts...who were upbeat, happy and funny. Huge breakfast and no shortage of toast. Would have loved to have sampled the tapas but couldn't wait for the five oclock opening of the restaurant. Beautiful walks locally and a fun fair for amusement!

Just returned from a two night stay here. We arrived earlier than expected but we were still checked in and welcomed with no mention of our timing. The room is lovely and clean with a nice comfy bed. They've put some thought into the little details such as hairdryer, iron, ironing board and toiletries which is always appreciated. The location...

Was pleasantly surprised with this place. One of the best places i'v stayed Helen the landlady could not have been more helpful and friendly. The food was good and the pizza is to die for. The views from the hotel are very good being set high on the top of Barry .

We really enjoyed a Tapas meal here. There is a large selection to choose from, we had a variety of tapas including meats and cheeses etc. Very well presented and served with politeness and a smile. Will visit again and recommend to others to try. We didn't stay in the hotel, just had a meal there.

Wonderful welcome by friendly staff/owner and that's how it was for the two days I stayed. It was amusing, at times, but never lost sight of the real objective which is to make sure all guests are well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble.
