Stayed here on a staycation, the place looked shabby and run down from the outside when got there, my husband proceeded to go inside didn't want to stay neither did I. Admittedly I had double booked two rooms, because first booking didn't go trew, so processed the booking again but was unaware this had happened? When we loo ked at both rooms none of the rooms were upto the pictures? The rooms had been touched up with paint over rotten skirting board, the Seaview room had a crack in front window, the shower was very tiny my husband struggled to get in trew the doors. When we complained the member of staff who was on couldn't do alot accept ring the Owner who never spoke to us to sort out our complaints he was only concerned about me booking it twice and said he didn't have to refund me but eventually did. Very rude owner didn't have the time of day for us. Room was, shocking had nowhere else to stay so had to stay.we had been to a guest house evening before it was, stunning so felt terribly let down by this place. Member of staff who was on tried his hardest o help and was very pleasant when we had stopped being upset next day. Spoilt our break away.

This hotel is perfectly adequate for a short stay. Having stayed in a few of these seafront hotels I can tell you these are very old buildings and so no, you’re not going to feel like you’re in a 5* hotel. Yes, you will see seagull poo on the windows, because this is a seaside town! You might see a few cracks in the wall paper, I have those too in my house. But what do you also get? A friendly owner, a dog friendly hotel, a comfy bed for the night in a good location with a sea view. If you want somewhere to lay your head at night after a day in this beautiful town, then this hotel is as good as any other in Aber. If you want to sit in a 5* room all day, visit a different town.

Small attic room at top of 4 flights of stairs. Very small , uncomfortable double bed, uncomfortable pillows. We couldn't sleep. Filthy windows that were nailed down , so could get no ventilation. Mould all around shower. Cracked walks outside room. No breakfast , but serving to public sitting outside hotel. £100 a night for the worst b and b we have ever stayed in.

Would like to say this place is nothing like described. Room facilities awful. Beds uncomfortable, shower so small any larger than petite won't fit in. Staff rude and very patronising. Wouldn't use again if it were the last place open on earth

I stayed with my girlfriend for one night in a sea view room. The overall experience was acceptable enough but there were a few problems with the small room. Firstly the extractor fan in the bathroom wasn't working which is a problem in such a tiny joined space. The windows were very draughty which was probably made much more apparent due to a storm. Overall I'm happy enough for the price we paid but with a little more cleaning and maintenance this place could be much better.
