Perfect for our purposes. Convenient location close to cafes and shops, etc. Well equipped and fitted out property.

So pleased that you enjoyed Minawel thank you for your review.
We have visited Minawel before and still like the property....ideal location and many plus points. However it is definitely becoming a little tired. In particular the garden (which is shown in the photos as being pretty and neat) was in fact overgrown with weeds and the paths blocked in some places by plants and the fence with the next door property by the back door into the garden is leaning in towards the path making access more restricted. The details given in the info pack is slightly misleading on rubbish disposal (black sacks ... none were provided) and no info on when to put out the rubbish for collection. It would be more helpful to have a number of utilitarian things on arrival such as rubbish sacks etc than to have a sponge cake which we could not eat and had to throw away and a 2 pint carton of semi skimmed milk which we do not drink so also thrown away. The wine, however, was enjoyable so thank you.We also found that although the sinks were superficially clean ... the plugholes around them were blocked up with hair and grease. I did try to clean these but it was difficult without proper cleaning materials. The fan in the en suite to the main bathroom was not working. This didn't trouble us too much as there were only 3 of us .... not the same for bigger parties. It would be a shame if these things were not rectified in what is in fact a lovely property.

From the owner:- Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you returned to Minawel for a second stay. Full instructions for waste and recycling are in the welcome brochure on the coffee table. Guests are simply asked to store full black and recycling bags in the external bin shed. These are emptied at the end of your stay. Spare bin bags are stored under the sink with the cleaning materials (apologies if the spare bags had not been replenished). The gardener has been in and the garden cut back and swept, The fan fixed and plugholes are gleaming - apologies for this most unusual oversight. We can assure you that Minawel is constantly being refreshed and renewed for our guests. In the last 18 months we have repainted the outside of house, upgraded to fibre optic broadband, installed USB socket in sitting room, replaced mattresses, refurbished and redecorated the main reception room including a new leather suite and light fittings all from John Lewis and using top quality Neptune paints. A welcome pack is left for all guests arrival - we are sorry that you did not enjoy the cake but it is very difficult to cater for all guests tastes.
This was an excellent property in a prime location. We had a lovely time staying here and would recommend it to others.

Thank you for your review, Minawel has an amazing location with regard to being able to walk to everything, glad you enjoyed your stay.
Very comfortable holiday house in a superb location close to the sea and also near shops etc
Ideal property for a family holiday ( 4 adults, 3 children). Once the cars were parked, we could do all we wanted on foot.
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.
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.?
Have enjoyed a good week in your very comfortable home. Weather cold at the beginning but warmed up towards the end of the week. Hada very nice meal in the Harbourmaster. Walked along coast both ways and up the river. Also fished but no catch, so bought for fisherman by the Hive. We also enjoyed the piano and log fire.
Have had a wonderful week staying here - the house is lovely and Aberaeron is beautiful. Plenty of good eating places nearby - will definitely return. Thank you for the welcome gifts - much approved.
Another week in the lovely town of Aberaeron. Would recommend The Cellar for meals out - far better than the Harbour Master. Hafod Estate has a variety of great walks. Newquay always a pleasure to visit to watch the Dolphins.
Lovely stay, in a wonderful cosy cottage! 3 generations of family have thoroughly enjoyed our time in Aberaeron. Had two fantastic meals in The Cellars and enjoyed our evening drinks in the Harbour Master. The fish & chips from the New Celtic were excellent and would definitely recommend. Would have liked better weather but can't have it all! Thank you for a great bank holiday weekend.
Our first visit to Aberaeron and really impressed by the location, the friendly people and the lovely house, which suited our requirements admirably. And thanks for the cake & bubbly. Plenty of good walks, inspirational views of the sunsets and a pretty harbour surrounded by impressive houses. Good selection of cafes and restaurants to satisfy a variety of tastes and sufficient shops for the essentials. All in all a great jaunt and will definitely return!
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.
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….
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.
Great time, Great accommodation. Weather good. Thank you.
Really enjoyed the stay in Minawel; it is a lovely house. There is every thing here you need. Weather not very good but have not let it stop us. The location is perfect.Lots of lovely beaches off the main A487
The Harbourmaster Hotel pub and restaurant has great food and staff.
Fantastic week, weather lovely, house perfect, location superb.
Really enjoyed our stay We'll be back!
Had a marvellous time! The house was beautiful and the town gorgeous! Can't wait to come back next year!
Thanks so much.
