Friendly quiet pub

Fitted with our requirements for the weekend. Nice walk just out the back. Good beer and a good choice for breakfast.
Breakfast room nice and airy. Good breakfast choice. Bar staff very friendly and gave us some detail about the area.

Peter – Sept 2014

A excellent place to stay

We had 5 very comfortable nights at the Salutation and were very well looked after.
As always we were looked after by an excellent and very professional and friendly staff. The breakfast was outstanding and the evening meals were also excellent.

Very Pleasant Stay

Friendly staff, clean and comfortable accommodation that provided all that was needed. Lovely breakfast in a room by the small garden, rooms were at the back and were very quiet.

Stay At The Inn

I’m not quite mature and not married but more a middle aged couple enjoying the cycling highways and by ways of West Wales. The owners of the Salutation Inn gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. The room was basic but spacious and very comfortable. They let us leave our bikes in the secure garage. We had our evening meal at the Inn which was wholesome and good value. Breakfast was delicious with fresh raspberries and strawberries, yogurt and a full cooked Welsh breakfast. There isn’t much to do in Felindre Farcog without a car but we walked to Nevern along a wooded path where there was a good pub and local history. I recommend Salutation Inn to anyone – the owners were very welcoming.

Staycation

Another pleasureable visit to a great part of Wales. Shame it rained for an hour but if you can see the mountin it is going to rain – we all know that. Good camerardery at the bar and fab sewin.

Breat Place!

I came with two friends from America and we all enjoyed the experience of staying at the Salutation Inn. The welcome, service and friendliness of all the staff was very much appreciated. Thank you to you all.
Certainly a place to recommend.

Dr Catherine Rowntree – 17th Jun, 2014

Comfotable Stay!

We stayed here for a couple of nights and were made very welcome. The meals were lovely-what a breakfast!! We had a Guide Dog in training with us and she, too, was well looked after.
The Salutation is very convenient for trips to Cardigan, Fishguard and St Davids and there is a lovely beach a short drive away. We will be back. Thank You.

Just Perfect For Us Both

The Salutation Inn was a perfect place for us to stay at whilst we were on retreat at Ffald-y-Brennin Christian Retreat Centre, just 15 minutes drive away. A warm welcome on arrival, a very comfortable bed and room with excellent food and great beer all ensured our stay was exactly as we had hoped for. We most definitely will be back

A Very Pleasant Stay At Salutation

We stayed at Salutation for 5 nights enjoying bed, breakfast & evening meals. The room was basic but comfortable(door closures were very strong so doors banged unless you held them back carefully)
Guest service was excellent & we were made to feel welcome by all staff. The food was tasty & well presented.
Overall it was very good value & we would recommend Salutation to our friends & family. Next time we are over from NZ we would like to call in again. Thank you to everyone.

Mr. Roger Wells – 8th Jul, 2013

Response from Accommodation: Thanks for you comments please send more friends from NZ all welcome…….

Salutation

For an overnight stay in this area, this fits the bill! “Motel-like” accommodation, a little “dated” in terms of bathroom tiles (that doesn’t matter at all!) but perfectly clean (that does matter!), quiet (despite being right beside A487) and a very delicious cooked breakfast – with lovely service.

Jill Hookway – 8th Jul, 2013

Response from Accommodation: So please you enjoyed your stay, upgrading bathrooms is on our agenda, hope to see you again.

Salutation Friendliness

The Inn is run by very friendly and welcoming people, with good facilities. The bedroom decor is a bit ‘brown’; could do with a ‘white’ facelift. The food i found slightly lacking in fresh fruit and salads, but the Inn generally has a lovely atmosphere. I felt very at home there. Lovely views from the breakfast room.

Mrs Claire L Alcock – 7th Jul, 2013

Very Good

Very good experience all round. Would stay here again!

Mr Christopher Eames – 1st Jul, 2013

Response from Accommodation: We shall look forward to welcoming you back……..

Great Hospitality

great hospitality and the food pretty tasty. The location is perfect, pub is dog friendly and rooms are comfortable. Bedroom furnishings and bathroom looked a little tired. The shower was excellent but a little too powerful for the space; the floor became soaked and slippery during use; towels came to the rescue. A good breakfast is served in the lovely bright and airy garden room overlooking a very pretty garden. Dogs can be walked straight from the door turning left you reach a lovely wild green paddock that seems to go on forever, bordered by the river. Birdsong mingles with the hum of the traffic passing by on the a road that runs past the pub; surprisingly the traffic noise is barely audible. Really great place to stay and so close to the very pretty town of Newport.

Linda Robinson – 1st Jul, 2013

A Delightful Stay

We stayed for four nights whilst visiting nearby Ffald-y-Brenin. The hosts, John and Gwawr Denley provide warm welcome and excellent food in a relaxed, informal and comnfortable setting.

Our Stay

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Salutation Inn. John and Gwawr were very welcoming and good to talk to. The breakfasts were very substantial and especially tasty . The evening meals were also good. It was a pity the lower half of our bedroom window was made of obscure glass as it disrupted the view. On the whole we very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you.
