OK lets get the negative out of the way. I think its bad business practice not to offer breakfast in the price of your room, however the restaurant is owned by the daughter so Bill is obviously pushing business this way. Still left a sour taste in the mouth though, enough to push us the few hundred yards across the...

While this B and B has a prime position near the harbour, it lacks any finesse. We stayed in their most expensive room at £80 per night and were very disappointed at the size of the room and the access up a steep stairs. If you are in any way slightly disabled this not suitable for you.The rear rooms are...

We booked the Arosfa last minute while on our first motorbiking road trip through the beautiful Welsh mountains having never visited the area before and knowing nothing about Aberaeron. Originally thinking we would end up in Aberystwyth but liking the look of the Arosfa we booked there instead. We tootled into Aberaeron at dusk in the drizzle not knowing what...

Stayed 3 days whilsted visiting friends, GH very old but in good condition and clean right on harbour with free parking although in summer would think it could be hard to find parking space easy. Found the bed very soft for us and small and should we return ask for single beds to ensure better nights sleep. Stairs to top...

We really enjoyed our overnight stay, having travelled through torrential rain, gale force winds and blizzard conditions on our journey. Charming old fashioned guest house, which provided everything we needed. Room was lovely and warm and cosy. Furnished with old type bedroom furniture which suited the type of property it is. Room was clean and tidy. Lovely comfy bed with...

Great location in village!! The owner Bill is very friendly and welcoming. The room was very small and the bed very soft. Half our luggage had to go in the bath room which was overly big. The shower didn't have much pressure so washing hair was an effort. There were half-stunned blowflies everywhere which didn't bother us a great deal...

Arosfa was not easy to find in our opinion. Manuka, the name of the restaurant within the same building had much better signage. It was only when enquiring at the tourist information office, did we find our b & b for the night. On arrival, Bill, the owner, allocated the room at the front of the building which, I think,...

While touring around Wales we found ourselves near Aberaeron at the end of a long day. With no reservation, we inquired at Arosfa through a local tourism office and they had a room available. The house is probably about 200 years old with a couple of crooked floors that only add to the charm of the place. The original plan...

We stayed here as a family of 4 (children aged 10 & 6 yrs) over the first May bank holiday 2016 and were very pleased. We booked a family room which seems to be one of the few in Aberaeron based on a few previous calls I'd made! The room was clean and comfortable and you stepped out onto the...

We stayed in Arosfa Guest House for three nights when we were in the area visiting family. We took advantage of the three nights for the price of two and this included a full cooked breakfast. The web site advertised the breakfast as award winning and indeed it was delicious with lots of choice. I particularly liked the Welsh Laver...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Affordable, quality accommodation for that special weekend or get-a-way break•Winter Break 3 nights for 2 from 1st November to 31st March excluding Bank Holidays•Real Comfort in centrally heated accommodation with modern double glazing• A memorable choice of imaginative Welsh Breakfasts that includes Celtic laver bread, smoked fish, traditional home cured bacon and tasty vegetarian dishes •Coastal path outside the front door•Harbour views and sofa comforts•In town but away from the main road. Close to the water's edge, shops and restaurants •Delightful ground floor accommodation with sun lounge and lovely views•Free, well lit overnight parking close by•All rooms en-suite; single, double, triple or small family•100% no smoking policy •Digital TV and free Wi-FI•Our friendly, efficient team hope to see you soon. The bedrooms all have their individual features that you would expect from a house built during the middle of the 19th century. Arosfa retains all its character from that period and is surrounded by similar fine Georgian properties that together make a handsome square with Pwll Cam (the Inner Harbour) at its centre. The fine Georgian house was originally built in the 1850's by a family from nearby Cardigan as a home and probable provisions store. This period was Aberaeron's heyday when a large part of the town was constructed. Arosfa is ideally situated in the town, on the harbour yet still only a short walk to the shops with the convenience of the small free harbour car park close by. There are no hills to worry about and you can take short walks along the quay and seaside promenade or up the riverside footpath which takes you over "Lovers Bridge" and into the park. The surrounding area has an abundance of interesting places to visit within a short drive or bus ride. To name a few there is Devils Bridge, reached by the narrow gauge railway, Roman Gold mines at Pumpsaint, Llanwernog Lead and Silver Mine, Llanerchaeron Mansion, National Botanic Garden of Wales, Aberystwyth Cliff Railway, the ancient Strata Florida Monastery and much more.Since our AA Award we have been continually refining our Welsh Breakfast fayre and there is now more choice than ever and we hope you enjoy it. We think our home cured bacon is something really special and we are always looking for something new to do with laver bread. One very refined elderly welsh lady dared herself to try this most Welsh of Welsh dishes for the first time. She thoroughly enjoyed it and was instantly converted to being a 'Bara Lawr' fan. Chilled Breakfast BarStart with a wonderful selection of fresh fruits, cereals, local cheeses yogurts and our own muesli that is available from the Chilled Breakfast Bar. Then enjoy one of our delicious cooked breakfasts: Grilled Fish, Fresh Filleted Mackerel, Freshly landed in Aberaeron during the season. Gently grilled and served with lemon and scrambled egg. Whole Smoked Kipper, Traditional, natural smoked kipper served on the bone with all the trimmings and scrambled egg. Arosfa Grilled Breakfasts: Our Welsh bacon comes from a local piggery where the pigs are reared outside in a natural way, feeding in fields or woods. We cut the bacon on the premises and serve it with local free range eggs and pork sausages made by our butcher. See if you can taste the difference. Traditional Breakfast: Two Thick Welsh Bacon rashers with pork sausage and fresh egg cooked to your liking. Full Welsh Breakfast: A favorite with many of our guests. Three Thick Welsh Bacon rashers, pork sausage and two gently fried eggs. Local Home Cured Bacon and Egg: This is the bacon that your grandfather would have had for breakfast. Being dry cured over time the old fashioned way it is different in texture and flavour, delicious. Welsh Black Pudding Two Welsh bacon rashers, a fried egg and 4 juicy rings of Pwdin Du. Celtic Laver Bread - 'Bara Lawr ' A delicacy that captures a unique flavour from the sea shore. Harvested edible seaweed that has been enjoyed locally for centuries and is still very popular today. Rolled in oats and lightly pan fried in olive oil;•Served with bacon and fried egg•Penclawdd Cockles and poached egg•Welsh Black Pudding and poached egg•Smoked haddock and poached egg•Or for vegetarians with lemon, mushrooms, tomato and filled with sliced, cooked apple if you wish. Local Cured Ham A lighter breakfast served chilled with melon and toasted home made bread, New Laid Eggs, Free Range eggs from a local farm.
