We were in Wales for a bike event and the landlord looked after our bikes - made us breakfast early and even let us shower 2 hours after check out! The restaurant is also really good, and they kept that open for our late arrival. Spot on.

We stayed for two nights in room 5 which was rather small and cramped and certainly not of a five star rating. The bed was comfortable and the view from the window across the estuary was amazing. The space between the bed and wall was about eight inches and quite a squeeze to get into bed! Shower room very cramped... More

Aberdovey as a whole looked to be struggling a bit, with lots of main street businesses and premises up for sale and looking a bit tired. The Penhelig Arms looks better than most from the outside and was buzzy inside with a lot of people eating in both restaurant and bar. Although nothing about the room was problematic, neither was...

Our family stayed in the Penhelig House, this is self-contained accommodation attached to the main hotel, it was very pleasant with great views. We ate twice in the bar and the food was good with friendly efficient service. Breakfasts were very good. Parking is tricky due to the waterfront location, but that is a minor quibble given the surroundings and... More

Stayed in the annexe which is a pretty modern affair.The Superior room was fab.Beautiful views from windows and a well equipped bathroom - lots of... More

Called in the Penhelig whilst visiting Aberdyfi for the day. Thought it would be good to pick up a brochure for a possible stay. As there was a sign outside saying coffee being served we thought that would be good. We found a table but after being ignored by staff I approached a young waitress who was very unhelpful and...

We ate in the bar on both nights of our stay, the service was friendly and professional, the food was excellent in both quality... More
