Welsh Success at the Best Loved Hotel awards 2016

Trefeddian Hotel
Trefeddian Hotel, Aberdyfi


A popular coastal hotel overlooking Cardigan Bay in the picturesque Mid Wales seaside village of Aberdyfi is celebrating a hat-trick of awards.


Trefeddian Hotel, which has been run by three generations of the Cave family since 1907, collected the Extra Mile accolade for customer service in the Best Loved Hotel awards. It previously won two Editor’s Choice awards from The Good Hotel Guide 2017 for golf hotel and family friendly hotel.


Best Loved Hotel Awards, which are voted for by hotel guests, are designed to celebrate and showcase excellence across Best Loved properties throughout Britain and Ireland. The Extra Mile Award recognises seamless customer service, generosity of spirit, a hotel that is prepared to go above and beyond for its guests.


The leading independent guide to hotels in Great Britain and Ireland, The Good Hotel Guide provides impartial advice on good places to stay. Hotels cannot buy their entry and the editors and inspectors do not accept free hospitality on their anonymous visits to hotels.

Last winter, the hotel’s lounge was completely refurbished and this year attention will turn to giving the dining room a makeover. The hotel has 59 bedrooms and 50 staff.


The hotel is blessed with a stunning location, enjoying panoramic views over Cardigan Bay and a lovely, sandy beach. The hotel’s regular customers tend to be within two-and-a-half hours’ travelling distance, with the majority living in Shropshire and along the M54 corridor in the West Midlands.


The Trefeddian Hotel is ideally placed for golfing and activity breaks as it overlooks a golf course, has watersports and four miles of golden beach on its doorstep and is within a short drive of Coed-y-Brenin Mountain Bike Centre.


Other winners at the awards were:


Online Excellence (Best Hotel Website)
Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa, Powys


The Pampered Guest (Best Spa)
St Brides Spa Hotel, Pembrokeshire
