Outstanding Views
Just back from a refreshing two night break at the cardigan guesthouse - what a view Always been a sceptic of guest houses and usually stay at hotel chains but these guys deserve a thumbs up 👍 I’m converted. The covid set up was great, key in envelope on door on arrival with instructions limiting contact with anyone also relevant contact numbers if needed and plenty of hand sanitiser around. I didn’t see a soul. The room with en-suite was light n spotlessly clean. Great water pressure in shower. The view was outstanding, watching the surfers during the day and listening to the waves at night with window open was a real treat. the room tray had everything you would need and appreciated the wine glasses and locally sourced coffee - great touch The only criticism is the mattress could do with a topper for that bit more comfort and a few touches to the room but in terms of value for money - this is the place to stay. I visit Aberystwyth a few times a year and looking forward to staying here again very soon. Cheers for a great stay
