The views and location is lovely. Great for photographs. The owner was very rude and unprofessional. There are lots of uneven surfaces and unsafe steps. The accommodation areas are not the best and some beds are very uncomfortable.

We hosted our Daughter's wedding here (Toni to Paul) on April 12th weekend. It was Idyllic and perfect. We hired the whole house, function room and apartments for 4 days. Pre wedding we visited the house several times, and Geoff (the owner) was available to answer many questions and was a fountain of knowledge about the house's history and also... More

We stayed here over New Year. As there were 28 of us we rented the entire premises including the apartment and gatehouse. While the house itself was large and very pretty on closer inspection you realise that it is all a bit tired. As a self catered house there was a distinct lack of standard equipment within the house i.e.... More

This is a much over due review (as our wedding was in September) but we had the weekend of our lives at Porthmawr Country House! From the moment we booked (Jan 2013) right through to the wedding (28th Sept) Geoff and Linda were always on hand to go through bits and bobs and accommodate our many visits to see the... More

Having read the poor review posted prior to mine I must admit to feeling a little nervous about our booking which was for the whole house and cottage for a family reunion in December 2013. I was wrong to worry as I cannot state how impressed we have all been with Porth Mawr and can only assume that the writer... More

We tend to visit this area once or twice per year to visit family and go climbing in the mountains. Anyhow, we decided to give Porthmawr a try. Anyhow, we stayed the ground floor flat, next to the old lodge and large gates. We were shown into the lodge by the owner who appeared to be quite a nice guy.... More

The dining room could sit us all (32 people) the kitchen was good enough to cook when we wanted to (except one small kettle... More

We hosted our Wedding weekend at Porthmawr & couldn't have made a better decision. The location is amazing & Geoff & Linda allowed us the freedom to make sure that the day was individual, but were incredibly supportive & helpful too. They made sure the day ran smoothly so that we could relax & enjoy. Thank you!!!
