My wife & I went for a weekend of relaxation, having been before - no tv, Internet only in bar so you truly can switch off! Fantastic restaurant menu, afternoon cakes and scrumptious breakfast! Friendly hosts too! We stayed in Room 4 with a separate lounge area, low ceilings (for a 6' 3"), but that's what you expect in a... More

Two night stay and wish it could have been longer. Our twin room was perfect for us and we would book this room again without hesitation. Absolutely first class breakfast and dinner - standard of food very high indeed. Perfect log fire at night as our group of ten snuggled in the lounge ... and Gordon a great host, very... More

A little gem of an hotel . Spotlessly clean, comfortable room with excellent facilities. The food far exceeded my expectations both in quality and the breadth of the menu. An ideal setting for walkers and those who wish to appreciate the countryside around the hotel. A warm welcome awaits those stay at Minffordd

Stopped here to visit relatives. Have never been to this part of Wales before and was pleasantly surprised with it. the hotel itself is small and due to its age quite quirky. there is no TV in the bedrooms which was quite a shock at first but we did not really need one. We had wifi in our room which... More

We visit the area every August Bank Holiday to attend a nearby Old Land Rover event. Although we camp, we always visit the hotel for an evening meal and have done so for the last five years. The food has always been excellent. I cannot think of a single meal that has not been delicious. Gordon takes great pride in... More

We stayed here for one night after climbing Cadair Idris. The location was perfect and very peaceful. We had a lovely double room and booked a table for dinner. The food - braised lamb and ribeye steak were cooked beautifully. Local ales and cider in the small bar were recommended and well worth trying. Breakfast was also excellent - generous... More

We recently stayed here in two pre-booked single en-suite rooms. The rooms were very comfortable, clean, well appointed, and nicely decorated. We had dinner on two nights, the food was tasty, well cooked and well presented. Breakfast was better than average (fresh citrus segments instead of tinned!). The proprietor was very attentive, as mentioned by other reviewers, but not annoyingly... More

As an associate of George B, I wish to take issue with his ambitious claim that "I have been entrusted with the front door keys of varying establishments since the age of twelve, and with great success." This is somewhat economical with the truth. I can recall a number of instances during hotel stays where George B has experienced poor... More

Many of the issues mentioned in previous reviews are utterly beyond the control of the owner. TV, radio & telephone reception are awful in the area so I cannot understand how any blame can be placed at Mr Holt's doorstep. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the rooms well appointed. Breakfast was superb with more choices than one would expect... More

We were greeted by the owner who offered to carry our bags from the car to our room. The room was spotlessly clean. We were concerned that it faced the main road on the ground floor, but the road became quiet after 10 PM. The bed was very comfortable and the room was warm but not stuffy. There is no... More
