We had a lovely time at the guest house. The room was spotless, the bed comfortable. Breakfast was freshly made by Amelia. A healthy portion size. We just had the cooked breakfast and toast with her homemade lemon marmalade, which was delicious. Cereals were also available if we had wanted it. The sea view from the dining room was stunning.
We had a patio room which was outside the main hotel building. This was very convenient to the car parking (under cover) as well as to the hotel facilities.
The down side was that the walls between the patio rooms were very thin and noises from the adjoining room were easily heard.
The restaurant food was excellent but pricey.

Absolutely brilliant! Everything about the place was beautiful: The building (especially at night with the fairy lights), all the rooms, the gardens and of course Hooch the dog! Some very slight lack of attention to detail with the room cleanliness, with the odd light cobweb in the corners and in the bedside lamp. Apart from that everything was spotless.
The breakfast had a fantastic selection, with fresh fruit salad bowls, pastries, cereals, yoghurts and Full English.
We had dinner in another pub on the first evening, which the hotel owner/chef didn't seem to impressed about, which for such a small community town seemed a little bit off.
We ate in the hotel on the second evening and it was fantastic. The king prawn sizzler for starters was delicious, and the zebra steak (don't hate me) had an amazing sauce with it. I did ask for medium, but received it well done, which was quite disappointing as I imagine it would have been to die for had it been cooked to my liking. I didn't complain though as it was still tasty (although a little bit tough). The dessert of specialty ice cream was lovely and the Turkish Delight ice cream was the best I've tasted!
After we had checked out the hotel called to apologize for noisy customers the night before, although we hadn't heard a thing!
I'd highly recommend the Bryn Artro Country House, and if we are going near that area again we will definitely either stay or call for dinner!
Marian is very friendly and welcoming. We felt very at home, so much so it felt odd locking our room door. It is immaculate and spotlessly clean throughout. Décor is bright and fresh. Breakfasts are awesome, especially kippers. We would not hesitate in re-booking.
