We really enjoyed a Tapas meal here. There is a large selection to choose from, we had a variety of tapas including meats and cheeses etc. Very well presented and served with politeness and a smile. Will visit again and recommend to others to try. We didn't stay in the hotel, just had a meal there.

Wonderful welcome by friendly staff/owner and that's how it was for the two days I stayed.

Great atmosphere from Breakfast to bed time, Lovely room to myself.....spotless!! Slept so well and...

I would describe this as a guest house rather than a hotel. There is no phone in room to contact reception, no bell on reception counter so a couple of times I had to hang around shouting hello until someone noticed me. A welcome pack in the room with WiFi code and other useful info would be helpful. I have...

I stayed for 2 nights. All meals were delicious. I can heartily recommend the tapas.A hearty Welsh breakfast is also highly recommended. Beer was nice, a wide choice of wines and prices very reasonable. Family owned and run, with friendly staff.

We have returned home today from an overnight stay at the Aberthaw House Hotel, we cannot recommend this hotel MORE HIGHLY than the five stars BUT the Hotel, Owner and Staff deserve FAR MORE.
