We stayed for one night as we were traveling to Ireland. We had our dog with us so they put us in a family room with its own private entrance with parking just by the door. We anticipated that they would not allow a dog in the restaurant however we were really surprised when they suggested we could eat in...

I stayed here with my fiancé and our two friends for one night over New Year. When we got there we were greeted by the hotel owner who was very pleasant and showed us to our room. We thought we had booked two double conjoining rooms but it was actually a double room with a conjoining bunkbed which was both...

Thank you Sophie for your review which is both hilarious and horrendous at the same time! 3 from 5 is not a great score but your nice comments about owner guidance, cleanliness, scenic views, peaceful surroundings and a good breakfast we can only be thankful for. The crucial question when we filmer 'four in a bed' was; "would you stay...

The exterior is somewhat eccentric but do not be put off. Mark and his Chinese wife, Jan were very welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble during our 2 night stay from 3rd to 5th April 2017. The oriental food in the evening was delicious and served in an efficient and relaxed manner. Breakfast was also excellent. The rooms...

Thank you Caroline for your 5 star review! We do manage to offer essentials in modern comfort and enjoy cooking and meeting travellers on their journey!

Stayed here on a whim on a monday night. We were welcomed and given room 10 ,we enquired about the restaurant and were told it was a book in advance during the week an the main part is locked up in the eve, hence the annex rooms being given out.

Thank you lucianne for your gracious comments. You do travel a lot and although a last minute walk in booking did kind of limit us in what we could prepare for you in advance - like room temperature, meals and vegetarian options for breakfast, I am pleased that where we did try to make a difference, it was noticed!

A very warm welcome with most comfortable accomodation. Hosts Mark and Jan offer excellent authentic chinese dinners as well as many other requests. The hotel is an excellent base for exploring the northern Pembrokeshire coast and is within half mile from the Irish ferry

We recently stayed here and were really impressed with the accommodation. It was spotless and so comfortable. The breakfast was lovely - full English with fresh fruit, yogurt, etc to start. Everyone was so friendly. Such a relaxing and pleasant place to stay. We walked to the seafront along the coastal path. The hotel is situated in a peaceful location....

Thank you David for your review! It gets tiring doing the back to back but so worth it to ensure guests settle in even at 1am in the morning! Jan and I look forward to welcoming you again off the Stena Line ferry from Rosslare I guess! Have a great summer ahead! Sincerely, Mark & Jan

After having a ten day driving trip through Devon and Cornwall we spent our last night at this guest house.
