We received a very warm welcome on arrival, staff so very polite, helpful and very friendly. Food was amazing and service was top class. Had coffee in the bar to finish off, atmosphere was very relaxed and unrushed. Wil definitely be returning. Thanks to all at The Harbourmaster.

Room was excellent and overall a very good stay. A bit disappointed in the restaurant food which was not as exciting as that being served in the bistro on the same night. My Sea Bream was under seasoned and the vegetables it came with were over oily and lacked finesse

Spiral staircase was a challenge, the staff were pleasant and helpful but the dining room atmosphere was somewhat subdued, we’ve visited several welsh Rarebit locations and it’s nice to explore others, thanks for accommodating us.

Staff were attentive and friendly. Food sublime, I could not fault the way the fish was cooked -we had 4 over the two nights we stayed. Accommodation beautifully furnished.

Lovely room to stay in, great food helpful and courteous staff who once they knew we spoke Welsh addressed us in Welsh each time. A great place to spend time in especially if the weather is foul.

All the staff have excellent knowledge regarding the menu, I am a coeliac and ordering food can be difficult, with so much information from everyone at the Harbourmaster this has been so easy. Thank you all very much.

Everything was impeccable. There was a particularly loud and obnoxious diner in the restaurant towards the end of the evening who had clearly had too much to drink and started shouting at the staff. They are a young team who dealt with him with much more courtesy than he deserved and the manager - Steffan Walker, talked calmly to him for some time until he finally left.

A little disappointed in the food, we felt some of the flavour combinations had not been thought through properly (eg rather buttery pan fried fish with a beurre blanc sauce,and too much dill in the whole dish.) We wished we had gone into the "bar" part which had more menu choices and a good atmosphere - the restaurant was rather 'stiff' and totally lacking in any atmosphere.

Enjoyed a wonderful stay at The Harbourmaster hotel. Such a lovely location on the quayside at Aberaeron. The food was absolutely delicious and the room extremely comfortable. The complimentary cafetière coffee and homemade biscuits in the room were very much appreciated. Looking forward to staying again!

Dreadful weather outside that night, but warm, cosy and comforting inside. Everything seemed laid back and homely.

Hi guys Just a note to say that we had the best time yesterday. Your place was recommended to us by a friend of ours in Malmesbury, Wiltshire where we live. The lunch was fabulous. The ambience great and all your staff were so very attentive. We just loved the bar as well! It was our first visit to Aberaeron and it was very similar in feel to the fishing villages of my native NE Scotland. We will definitely be back. Cheers. Mike & Chris.

The setting, the rooms, the food are all exquisite. This was our third visit and it won’t be the last. We certainly don’t live nearby but if we did we would certainly frequent Aberaeron more often.
