“Friendly and comfortable”
We arrived early and were treated to tea and biscuits by a very friendly member of staff. Due to stay at the bunkhouse we were "upgraded" to the B&B, which having just walked across Wales was glorious. The owner then gave us a lift into Aberystwyth so we could have a relaxing evening with a pint of beer and fish and chips on the prom. The following morning we were treated to a lovely breakfast and the offer of a lift to the railway station.
PS. Your group categories don't fit us - it was me and a mate waling - we are both 60 so I went for mature couple!
