What a brilliant place. Stayed in the penthouse apartment it was gorgeous. Fantastic views over the Estuary. The person who booked us in moved his car to allow us to park in the very small car park. We had a small terrace and were lucky to have a bit of sun in a very poor summer. We also had a... More

We stayed here for one night recently an had a our dog with us. Room was good if small and very hot. We opened the window but because our room was at the front of the hotel and it is on a main road it was noisy. Aberdovey is a very nice village in a fantastic location and the hotel... More

Firstly Aberdovey is a gorgeous place, and the Penhelig Arms is in a fantastic location with gorgeous sea views. We booked to stay for a mini break with our baby. We informed the B&B that we required a travel cot. There was no mention of an extra charge for this and the booking confirmation confirmed the room for myself, partner... More

Booked this room on a road trip with my partner last week on a whim. Literally booked about 2 hours before I checked in and got the last room due to a cancellation!! I can see why there are not rooms left!! Checked in with a very friendly Manager and asked if they were still serving food as was gone... More

This review should be 5 star but I'm afraid due to front of house staff only being two or at the very best three people which meant long waits for food orders drinks and service of any kind. Those poor girls deserve a medal and the owner should be ashamed of themselves for not giving them and the customer more... More

Hi Big Monster Sorry to have disappointed you with our service during your recent visit. As you will see from my reply to Griff, below, we experienced a little issue with 2 members of staff being sick on the evening of your dinner. This also turned out to be an unexpectedly busy service. Not that any of this should concern... More

Went to the Penhelig last night for a meal having been on numerous other occasions, once again, the food was excellent, however, the service was atrocious, only one person on the bar and one taking food orders with a couple of runners collecting and delivering. No one asked for our drink order so we ordered at the bar, see above,... More

Dear Griff Thanks for your review. I'm sorry that felt the service during your recent visit was somewhat lacking. My sincere apologies for this, due to the fact that two team members had called in sick. I appreciate that this is not your issue but at the same time was unavoidable. I notice you say you have dined many times... More

Really looked forward to this trip but reasonable expectations were not met. I think guests should be warned when booking about the two flights of steep, awkward stairs. I have limited mobility and the stairs were a nightmare. We were in a 'small double', room 8. It is really a small single. Other reviews have mentioned the difficulty of getting... More

My first time to this little village and to this hotel. The hotel is clean and the staff so friendly, they can not do enough for you. Rooms are large and the views incredible. There is a lovely balcony area where you can sit with a drink and look out to sea and enjoy a glass of wine. The food... More

Just back from a lovely stay at the hotel, beautiful views over the estuary from the bedroom window, the staff are very helpful and even carried our bags up the narrow stairs. We ate in the hotel on two nights and could not fault the food or the service, and the sharing pudding platter was to die for. The breakfast... More
