Stayed for at the Emlyn Hotel for a birthday treat and it didn’t disappoint. The room was lovely with a luxurious bathroom and was very warm and cosy. We had an ice bucket and champagne glasses delivered to the room and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We booked a table for the restaurant and the food was amazing. Every dish we ordered was devoured and the beef cheek was the tastiest dish I’ve had in years. Will definitely return. The breakfast was fresh cooked to order and again was very good. Would recommend this hotel for the quality of the food and the excellent friendly service and also because of the homely comfy suite we stayed. It was 10/10.
Stayed on a TravelZoo offer and after reading some of the reviews I was a bit apprehensive especially as it was a gift for my partner. Thankfully had very little to worry about. The location is great there are castle ruins and a lovely walk along the river within walking distance. But you can also visit some of the local beaches and if you fancy travelling further afield to Tenby or Aberystwyth which we did. We were greeted by the lovely receptionist who advised us that due to our room having maintenance done we had been upgraded to a suite which was a lovely gesture. The room was outside of the hotel just a short walk down the road with no parking but that was not a huge issue we could park long enough to unload the car. The room was fabulous, spacious lounge and bedroom and an amazing bathroom. Sadly there is no view out of the front window as there is a property directly opposite. I used the gym that was small but had enough equipment for me to get a decent workout done. There was no water available not sure if this is a covid thing as there were lots of empty bottles next to the water machine. Breakfast was lovely continental plus choices other than the full breakfast which you don't always get. So as we were staying for 3 nights i decided to have all 3 and all 3 very good. Just a few negatives. Check-in was 2pm we arrived just after but our room wasn't ready. The receptionist could not have been more apologetic though so we were ok with it just went next door to the pub for a drink. The television in our lounge was not working properly we reported it and were told that maintenance would be advised on Monday but it was not fixed for the duration of our stay. it wasn't a huge issue as we were out most of the day but as we had the luxury of a suite it would have been nice to have been able to have full use of it rather than just sitting on the bed to watch telly when we got back. There was a problem with the lock on the front door it was quite difficult to open from the outside and more worryingly from the inside. If there was an emergency and we needed to get out in a hurry that would not have been possible. We mentioned it to the cleaners when they came on the Monday and they said that they would report it again nothing was done during our stay. The bedroom gets very hot even with the radiator off so sleeping comfortably is an issue. There is a fan in the room which we used on the second night and it worked a treat and is very quiet. We decided to eat in the restaurant on one evening and as breakfast was so good we had high expectations sadly we were very disappointed. As a previous reviewer has mentioned it is very burger dominant with only 3 other options. My partner opted for the chicken goujons to start which we are pretty sure were a famous frozen brand! He chose a burger which he enjoyed but did say that it was a bit too big and he has a very big appetite but struggled with it. I chose the sea bass which was not very appetising at all. I see people have said that the menu is to be changed and we really hope so as we would like to return to the hotel and give it a another try. Final note has to go to the staff each and everyone of them that we came into contact with are a credit to the hotel, polite friendly and helpful. Yes we had a few niggles but we would 100% stay here again in part due to the fantastic customer service.…
We stayed 2 nights on the very good travelzoo offer and used the hotel as a base for visiting St David’s and Porthgain . We have stayed many times before and always enjoy . The room was very good and the staff were all very nice and helpful .The only disappointing aspect was the dinner menu - burgers were the mainstay on the menu and there were only a few other choices . Years ago when we visited the menu was excellent . Breakfast however was very good .We were told on check out that the restaurant was in line for decoration and that the menu would be changed so hopefully when we next visit ( which we definitely will !) there will be many more choices !
nice hotel to stay in, stayed in the bridal suite, really nice. Great location to get to Cardigan bay, went on a dolphin trip, £20 per person, say a couple but could have seen them from the bay or hill tops, as it goes, the mother and it's pup were spoted in the bay where we were enoying fish and chips. good places to eat and walk round here. watch out for the tight roads. Never got to try the restaurant, covid, but breakfast was OK Good parking.
The politest word I can use is dilapidated.Don't go,unless you are in to burgers.The very restricted menu was dominated by them.Avoid room 11.It faces the street and the road noise was deafening.No gin glasses in the bar and just one packet of salt & vinegar crisps!Fortunately,we were on a Travelzoo deal.I feel sorry for those guests who paid full price!!
