We have just returned from this wonderful guest house tucked away by Tal-y-llyn. The accommodation was first class and sleep quality was fantastic - quiet and restful. The lounge was very comfortable with a large array of reading material - both local and national. The dining area was lovely - I particularly liked the set up - all eight dining... More

Outstanding in every respect. Extremely comfortable rooms, a guests lounge, Lorraine's wonderful cooking, Alex's helpfulness and knowledge of the locality, magnificent views and easy to find on the edge of the lake. Fabulous.

Literally stumbled across this at the very last minute and what an amazing stumble it was. Beautiful B&B in a stunning part of the world and the whole experience was fantastic from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

Beautiful place to stay at the gateway to Cader Idris and Llyn Tal-y-llyn, the former a wonderful climb and the latter a very popular lake for sea trout fishing. Alex and Lorraine are excellent hosts who have vast local knowledge about what, when and where to enjoy the outdoors and experience the best of Snowdonia! The service is very personal... More

I spent two days here in October with my partner. We stayed in the Mawddach room. The bed was so comfy I didn't want to leave and the bathroom was lovely. The bath is just what you need after a day of exploring the area. Breakfast was delicious,a wide variety of vegetarian options. Spending an evening under the stars in... More

We had a wonderful 5 night stay here. Very clean room with lovely views, and superbly appointed. Very nice breakfast each morning, and always enjoyed evenings in the lounge with a bottle of wine, scrabble, and company with the hotel's dog :-) Will definitely come back :-)

The room was very clean with a en suite bathroom, the bed was so comfy I didn't want to get up. The two owners were very nice and welcoming people with great knowledge of the local area. After a long day mountain biking we had a lovely dinner finished with a bottle of wine in the hot tub under the... More

Having just returned from a short 3 night stay with Alex and Lorraine we would just like to say a huge thank you to them both for making our stay so fantastic, the feeling of staying somewhere that makes you feel that you are literally home from home is very rare these days, but they pull it off with ease....
