Customer Reviews

We really enjoyed our stay at Minawel right in the harbour of Aberaeron. The house had plenty of room for our party of seven adults. It's clean, roomy, comfortable and very well equipped. There is a huge garage for your car. Rainy days (which were rare) are catered for with lots of board games and books. My musical family enjoyed making full use of the piano. Despite its central location during a busy holiday week, we were able to sleep undisturbed. Everything you need, shops, pubs, restaurants is within a few yards' walking distance. The welcome package was also a nice surprise. We would highly recommend Minawel to anybody looking for a place to stay in Aberaeron.

Very lucky circumstances allowed us to use this beautiful house so a dream has come true. We enjoyed the comfort and good spirit of this accommodation very much. So we have to say goodbye with tears in our eyes.

Roetzel family, Cologne, Germany

Thanks for a great holiday. The house is really comfortable and in a wonderful location. Thanks for the bubbly, books, games and information leaflets.

Cliff, Marian, Brian, Diane, Adam, Rhys and Dexter the dog

Many thanks for the generous welcome pack which we enjoyed. We felt instantly at home in this unusual and beautiful house, very warm and comfortable too. We loved the harbour view and the convenience (of everything ) on the doorstep. Even the cooler days could be enjoyed in such a lovely location, but the icing on the cake was the delightful conservatory on the sunnier days. Thank you for sharing it with us

Mrs Wood, Croydon

Lovely house in ideal spot, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be back. We enjoyed sitting in the conservatory. Some lovely walks and places to eat, my husband particularly enjoyed La Cuccina. Prince of Wales and Monachty dog friendly. Recommend cafe at top of railway in Aberystywth, dog friendly and lovely food.

Barnards, Aberdare

Thank you so much for a magical stay. This is the best appointed, most comfortable, and prettiest guest accommodation we have yet enjoyed! Many thanks for your generous hospitality.

Gareth Jane Tamara Cerys, New Zealand

Perfect location on the harbour front. We were a party in the age range 5 years to 80, all thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, and loved the house. It was located perfectly on the harbour with everything you could need close by. The house was well equipped. The washing machine and tumbler were a godsend as we had a young child with us. Having a garage, although tight to get in and out sometimes due to neighbours parking close to the door, was very useful, as the town was heaving over the bank holiday.

Dr Thomann

We've had a lovely week here - very comfortable house, beautifully equipped, in a great location.The Monachty, Prince of Wales, Castle Hotel bar and The Cadwgan all dog friendly (good beer too!)Delightful walks along the Aeron (river)
