Due to pandemic restrictions the Hotel and Staff have done remarkably well. Making us feel very safe, as every precaution we expected seemed to be in place. With the bar and restaurant closed and the weather being cold we’ve eaten in our room, delivery has been prompt, the food delicious and hot. We did have drinks outside, again everything well organised with friendly table service. Will be back for the full experience when restrictions are removed as we are confident to have a wonderful time here at the Harbour Master.

Under the strict conditions the hotel service was outstanding. The room service, the refill centre, was all very well thought out. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable- we thank you very much for a great stay.

The food was fantastic. My wife has some food requirements and when we asked if they could do anything they made her a beautiful meal that catered for her dinning needs. The drinks were good and really enjoyed the local beer. The staff were great throughout our stay. They constantly went out of their way to help us and make our stay comfortable which isnt easy with all the Covid regulations so hats off to them. We wanted to mention Stefan because he was fantastic. Would love to come again and would recommend to anyone. Thank you all the staff 😁👍

Can't believe our plans meant we amazingly had lunch there on the last day before the place closed for the whole of the festive season. You will be a sad loss during this time, but we look forward to coming back in the new year for your lovely food and drink and atmosphere. Diolch yn fawr.

We love the harbourmaster. There is one male waiter in particular who is always amazing with our 3 year old son. The food is excellent. The “mock-tails” are expensive for what they are, though. Exceptionally clean and tidy, and the restaurant has adapted really well to the pandemic. It’s a shame the restrictions have resulted in closure until next year... we will be back then.

We loved our weekend break at your beautiful hotel. Everything was perfect, the room was super, the food divine, the staff were so welcoming and professional. The town itself was a wonderful surprise. We cannot wait to visit again. In these difficult times the hotel was an oasis of happy calm and total enjoyment. Well done all of you.
