“What a wonderful place to stay. Amazing sea views from your own large balcony, high quality finish to the spotlessly clean modern apartment with all the things you need well catered for. We'd stay every week if we could!”

“A lovely apartment with views over Aberporth beach which was literally just across the road. Beautifully clean, tastefully furnished and decorated, it's a great place to chill out and, weather permitting, sit on the balcony, especially if the thought of climbing all the stairs is too much effort!

A treat to have some welcome goodies when we arrived too - generous hosts!”

“We absolutely fell in love with Penny Red! The apartment was beautifully furnished and its location was second to none! We barely moved the car all week, just wandered to and from the beach - this meant we didn't need to worry about parking spaces in Aberporth's small seafront car parks. We would definitely book again!”

“Watched these wonderful apartments emerge from the old post office and always jealous of families staying here, so great to be able to stay but WOW the photos do not do the apartment justice, what you can’t see is how comfy and cosy it is. There is everything that is needed to self cater and the little treats left by Sam were lovely and such a wonderful thought. When we arrived the apartment was really warm with plenty of storage to put our things away prior to folding ourselves into the settee to catch up before going to the pub next door. There were only the two of us but there is plenty of space for four. Would we recommend- yes and have done, will we be back - definitely. It was a pleasure doing business with Sam who has amazing customer service.”

“We had a wonderful stay over the Easter weekend and the apartment was superb - just a pity it was not warm enough to sit out on the lovely balcony!

Aberporth was very central for the little bays and beauty spots we wanted to explore and great to have all the amenities on our doorstep.”

“Our first 2 week holiday for nine years and with 2 teenagers we needed a modern
accommodation and a good variety of activities not too far away. We were not disappointed. The apartment had all we needed. Being 1 min from the beach meant there was always an outside distraction. We had plenty of room to stay in and play games/watch films and the wifi helped keeping in touch with friends - a must for teens ! The coastal paths were followed and beaches discovered. Drives up the coast gave us enjoyable days out. A beautiful area enjoyed by us all and from a comfy home from home. Sadly, only 1 dolphin sighting though !”

“Great place to stay. Unfortunately, due to illness, we were unable to stay for the full week, but for the few days we did stay, it was lovely. Highly recommend any of the Old Post Office apartments.

Many thanks Sam ... even though it was a short stay...

“The flat was first class in decor and superbly fitted out. It was good to have tea, coffee, sugar, liquid soap, etc already in flat when you arrive.
Also fully fitted with towels and linen.
The views of the beach were amazing we were able to see dolphins from the balcony. The flat was so close to the beach.
This is the best accommodation all round we have stayed in and we have holidayed in the UK for many years.
I would recommend this to others but don't really want to as would like to keep it to ourselves.”

Feedback - Aug 2014

“We were delighted with the Penny Red , it was spotless on arrival, nice touches such as fridge on and with chilled wine...fresh has a lovely view and by far the best aspect was the lovely balcony which we spent a lot of time on !
Also can recommend the local fish and chips eaten on the beach in the evening was memorable.
Also we were thrilled to see dolphins from the balcony most days !”

“Excellent accommodation in an ideal location for exploring the west coast of Wales.”

Feedback - Oct 2013

“We loved the apartment. The view from the balcony was wonderful and the apartment itself was extremely comfortable. The balcony made the apartment - we found that we didn't want to jump in the car and go to other places as it was so peaceful to just sit on the balcony, read a book and enjoy the view! The walks around Aberporth showed off the area's scenery very well but it was always nice to get back to the apartment, the balcony and that view! We will definitely be returning.”

“Fantastic apartment for a lovely chilled out family break. Location was ideal for use with young children, we could pop back and forth the beach and both kids now have rosy cheeks to prove the sea air does you the world of good. We didn't travel far in our weeks stay as we had everything here, beach, lovely apartment and a glass of wine when the kids were in bed. Would come back in a heart beat. Looking forward to returning. Also, saw dolphins a few times which was fantastic!”

“What a fantastic place to stay!! We have really enjoyed our two week stay here in Penny Red. The view from the balcony was great. The objective of coming to this area was to see some dolphins and they were in the bay on the first Sunday night, about 8 of them! A thoroughly enjoyable visit to West Wales. Weather could not have been better. We would love to come back.”

Steve & Margaret. Sep 2011.

“We definitely came up trumps finding this place. Apartment is well furnished and very comfortable. The views from the balcony are beautiful. We spent most of our days on the beach. Our highlight happened to be on the beach when a group of dolphins decided to put on a show - magical. Breakfast on the balcony felt like we were abroad - a great feeling. Our visit short but sweet and well worth it. Would definitely recommend to a friend and will come again.”

The Hawkers, September 2011

“Accomodation, Cleanliness and Facilities are Excellent +. You need to add an even better rating to match the tremendous standards of these flats! Central location. Great place to spend your holiday either here in Aberporth or in any other place in Wales! A perfect job! We would like to come back soon too! ”
