Recent Stay
We stayed 17-21st of July. The greeting from the owners Richard and Hugh was very welcoming. We had stayed before and the suite was perfect for our needs with a small patio for the dog. Breakfasts were lovely and it was interesting to see how the grounds had matured since our previous visit a couple of years ago. This is definitely a place to return to.

My wife and I (and two Spaniels) have stayed here on several occasions and the experience is always the same: 5 star! The accommodation itself is of the highest standard, the situation is stunning and the owners are adelight.

Fantastic - First Class
Penbontbren is everything you would want for a relaxing, peaceful perfect holiday in a first class bed and breakfast. From the moment you arrive - greeted by gracious and welcoming hosts Richard and Huw you feel you have your own little slice of heaven. The beautiful suites are spacious, immaculate and everything is designed and co-ordinated to such a high standard. Each suite looks out onto the beautiful lawns and gardens. The breakfasts are delicious and cooked perfectly with local produce. Penbontbren is tucked away down a little country road but near to the beautiful coastline and lots of nice places to eat in the evenings. One of the best bed and breakfasts you could ever stay at.

Wonderful Peaceful Stay
We came for a mini break to relax and recharge batteries - and were delighted. Every tiny detail has been well thought out in designing, furnishing and equipping the suites. The bed was super comfortable, and the very warm welcome from Richard and Huw made us feel like valued guests. The gardens and setting is wonderfully private and peaceful, yet very well placed for exploring the delights of the coastal area. We have already planned a return trip...

From the moment I booked the room the service was above and beyond. Richard called me to welcome me to stay that night and emailed me better directions than the satnav would take me.

Travelling for work and on my own I arrive and Richard is there on hand to help with my bags into my room - when I say room I mean suite.

Honeymoon At Penbontbren
This was our first trip to south Wales and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay.

Richard's greeting was warm and friendly, he is a bubbly chap with a sharp sense of humour, and very attentive.

We were allowed to select our room, and again Richard had an insight as he had arranged a bottle of bubbly in our room.

The breakfasts are first class, service is quick, and again attention in requirements is excellent.

The accomodation is very clean and well thought out, more in line with a very good city hotel, the grounds are a pleasure to take a stroll around.

In all a very plesant stay, many thanks to you both Richard and Hue.

As a family of 4 + dog we stayed at Penbontbren for 2 nights. We found the B&B welcoming, spacious, luxurious, comfortable and accommodating for all of us including our dog. The breakfast was perfect with prompt attentive good service to match. This establishment is truly worthy of its 5 star rating! We will be staying here again but next time it will almost definitely be for a longer time.

Absolutely Wonderful Stay
We stayed for 5 nights at Penbontbren and from the moment we arrived until leaving we had a really wonderful time. Richard and Huw could not have been better hosts, they are warm, friendly and extremely welcoming. The room was like a large hotel suite with 2 bedrooms and a lovely lounge area ... every last thing had been considered from lovely welsh cakes with our tea tray every day, to bath robes and quality toiletries. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the beds are really comfortable. The breakfast offers various options and all cooked freshly ... every one was delicious! We were a family with a son aged 6 and our dog and I have to say that we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and felt so well looked after here. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend to anybody who is looking for a truly high quality holiday with the warmest of hospitality and superb breakfasts to set you up for lovely days out in this beautiful part of the country. Excellent in every way, thank you!

A Jewel In The Crown Of Ceregdion
Penbontbren stands out a class above many many other B&Bs we have stayed in. From the cleverly designed and manicured gardens with a croquet lawn and wild rabbits, to the quaint yet modern suites, it can only be described as perfect. Located a few miles from the most idyllic beaches in Wales and not far from many a good eatery I can only urge anyone who is thinking of visiting this area to stay. Finally a big thank you to RichArd and Hugh who made our stay warm and welcome with a genuine interest in what we were doing and many tips to help us make the most of our time there.

Excellent mini bar, toiletries etc. A peaceful rural location, in well maintained and designed grounds. Breakfast room was delightful and the breakfast itself was great. The poached egg on toast was the best Ive had in any hotel anywhere, maybe down to the freshest eggs hatched on site. Staff were friendly, attentive and efficient.

Penbontbren – can be summed up by a definition of ‘Exquisite’. It has a very special beauty, charm, and a rare and appealing excellence. All things taken into consideration during our stay here – Penbontbren – which is run by the most charming Richard and Huws, could not be a more welcoming, relaxing and refreshing place to stay-a-while and de-stress. We relaxed in the little sitting area –drinks cabinet on hand – followed by a lovely hot bath – then fell into a sumptuous and comfy bed for a good nights sleep. We woke and watched the sun rise across the beautifully manicured grounds,from our own patio area – then nipped over to the dining room for a scrumptious breakfast and a quick and friendly chat with Richard.

Beautiful Surroundings, Friendly Welcome
I recently stayed in the beautifully decorated garden suite which was my very own cottage detached from any of the other buildings. It looks over the well maintained gardens and has its very own garden area where you can sit outside and enjoy a drink / meal.

I was travelling by myself and had picked up food along the way so I was pleased to see that there were plates and cutlery plus a variety of soft and alcoholic drinks to select from along with a fridge to keep other items I had bought with me chilled.

I would most definitely stay here again and would encourage others to do so also.

An Excellent Luxury B&b - Very Friendly!
We booked to stay 3 nights at Penbontbren, and received a very warm welcome from Richard upon our arrival. We were shown to our spacious, immaculate 2 bedroom suite (number 1), with separate living room and private patio overlooking the beautifully kept gardens. It was such a peaceful location and perfect for exploring the Ceredigion area.

The breakfast was delicious and a very relaxing start to the day. Richard was most helpful in providing tips for places to visit and restaurant recommendations for lunch and dinner.

If Carlsberg Did B&b...
It still wouldn't match up to Penbontbren, where do you start with a review of this place? is it with the warm welcome, or the superb apartments, or is it the wonderful breakfast, or maybe the calm, quiet grounds. It is all of these and more besides.

When we arrived Richard and Huw were off having a couple of days well earned break after a busy season, so we were left in the very capable hands of Carol, who made us feel at home straight away, and for the next 2 days looked after us at breakfast whilst ensuring our rooms were serviced to the highest standard. The breakfasts are a long lazy delight, fresh fruit salad, cereals of all types (including Gluten free, cold meats and cheeses, fruit juice etc. the list goes on and on, endless tea and toast and then on to the main event a cooked breakfast from heaven, again a superb choice (you will have to visit to see the full list) on the third morning I tried the Lavabread, Cockles and Bacon with a poached egg, and it was a real joy.

The apartments are stunning with every conceivable need catered for, really sumptuous furnishings and wonderfully warm.

When Richard and Huw came back they were both a pleasure, keeping us advised on places to visit and where to eat, they will even book the tables for you.

Sadly after only 5 nights we had to leave, but please be assured you arrive as guests but leave as friends, thank you Carol, Richard and Huw, you made a good break great! See you next March. Jan & Stewart.

Valentines Weekend Away
Penbontbren is a magical little gem that exceeded our expectations in a big way. My wife has recently fallen pregnant so we have had to abandon our plans of a long 2 week caribean holiday in August and have instead looked at taking a series of long weekends over the coming months. This was our first and we were looking for a great little B&B that offered that something extra. Well we werent dissapointed, the converted farm is just stunningly beautiful, and the room we had was impecibly thought out. The attention to detail was outstanding, from the luxuriously comfortable bed, to the easy to use lovely coffee machine and quality bath products. Richard greeted each morning at breakfast and you couldnt want for a more charming host, the breakfast was really good and set us up for the days exploring of the cardigan bay coastline and the pembrokeshire coast, both just a short drive to stunning scenery.

We are already discussing when we will be back next! Thanks very much Richard and Huw!

The breakfasts were scrumptious with every alternative you could wish and the quality of food and cooking beyond 5 star - all the ingredient were produced locally and their very own eggs make for a wonderful breakfast, with haddock or smoked salmon or cockles!

We were recommended to some high quality places to eat out too, which helped make our holiday. You could not possibly falut it! Thankyou both Richard and Hugh for your service par excellence!

We definitely had a 5 star stay. Lovely comfortable bedroom and sitting room, wonderful breakfast and very helpful friendly service. Can't wait to go back for a longer stay.

We needn't have worried that our first jaunt down to West Wales would have brought us to a place any more perfect than Richard and Huw's haven that is Penbontbren. A meticulous attention to detail made all the difference for us, well deserving the accolade of being a 'luxury' B & B. Delicious locally sourced food served up for a perfect, leisurely breakfast set us up for the day, if the weather lets you down as soon as we returned to our apartment our spirits were lifted. We are torn between praising such a wonderful place for a getaway and saving the secret for ourselves. Thank you to all the staff at Penbontbren for making our stay as fantastic as it was.

We had a wonderful four day stay and this recently renovated Inn. The spacious and elegantly appointed room was comfortable and relaxing. The environment intoxicating and the food is excellent and ample. We would love to come back to spend time here. Great area too
