Guest Book Comments

Our second visit to Minawel and sure it won't be our last! Lovely break with the family - doing a whole lot of nothing! The weather was very kind to us - even managed a BBQ! Delicious meal at Summer Grill (Manuka) and further afield at Y Talbot, in Tregaron. Sorry to be leaving.

What a little gem Aberaeron is. A lovely village/town with amazing sunsets, and beautifully painted properties. The house was the quietest we have stayed in and the beds were very comfortable. And the location was excellent for us all. Thank you very much.

Lovely clean house, and really good base for doing all sorts of things. We really enjoyed an evening walk and drink at the Prince of Wales at the back of the house. Landlady was really friendly and there was table football / pool room for the kids.

Excellent

Elizabeth Jones - 1st October 2018

Ideal property for a family holiday ( 4 adults, 3 children). Once the cars were parked, we could do all we wanted on foot.

J Smith - 14th August 2018

Very clean and owner very helpful. Lovely position. Well furnished and equipped. if I had a critisum it would be the wash basin in the on suite it was only big enough to wash your hands but it would t. change my star rating.

Betty Burton - 22nd June 2018

Lovely, very clean & comfortable, everything you needed, and plenty of space for everyone. Right in the middle of the town, with the pub next door, other hostelries on the doorstep, overlooking harbour with free parking, what's to dislike.?
