Well what can we say, when we arrived and walked through to the reception, we thought it was a very cosy and comfortable hotel. The meal that we had on the first evening was very enjoyable and Sam who looked after us was an asset to them. Breakfast was really good, and a really good variation of fresh fruit, could... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Gellifawr . We stayed in one of the small two person cottages . It was lovely . Just the right size for us ( and meg our dog ) . There was a small patio area for each cottage with a picnic bench we enjoyed a drink each evening out... More

We stayed for two nights in a three bedroomed cottage, with our 3 small dogs. The cottage was "homely" the sofas were very comfortable! (the angel watching TV was uncomfortable so we had to move the sofa). The TV had a wide choice of channels - perfect for the evenings. The bed linen was spotless, not too cool nor too... More

The hotel is set in a pretty, and remote, location. The staff were all really friendly. There's a nice small bar with two ales on hand-pump and a good wine list. The weather was lovely when we were there and it was very pleasant sitting outside pre-dinner but the lounge area inside was lovely too. We ate there both evenings... More

Just home after a very enjoyable break at the Gellifawr. Stayed in self catering cottage but opted to try breakfast and dinner and both were excellent. Any minor problems were quickly sorted by Jane to our satisfaction and my wife and her sister would love to return again.

We stayed for four nights in the hotel. Attentive and friendly staff made our visit a pleasure and with greater attention to the small details that matter this would be an exceptional venue The food was of a high quality, locally sourced and generous. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.

We stayed in the hotel for a 2 night break. To find any any serious faults would be harsh and picky. The staff were pleasant, polite & friendly and made us feel welcome from booking to leaving. The location is in the middle of the countryside making it perfect for those who want a relaxing break with peace and quiet... More

Last minute booking in a three bedroom cottage over the bank holiday weekend. Beautiful scenery with red kites, ravens and buzzards soaring over the wonderful Gwaun valley. Peaceful and relaxing and a great welcome from the staff. We self catered but made use of the bar which was comfortable and reasonably priced. Would go again.
