Called in for an evening meal, we've eaten here before and know the food is good. Only 4 of us in the bar and 6 in the restaurant but they could not accommodate us for an evening meal. Couldn't even make us a sandwich or a bowl of soup. Moral of the story......book ahead and don't bother coming out of... More

Tea and coffee facilities in our room with hot chocolate and biscuits. Lovely friendly staff. Nice cosy bar area. We enjoyed a lovely evening meal in the restaurant.... More

Good parking. Good choice of breakfast menu. Evening meal wa good although not a very good selection on the menu if you're not keen on fishy things. Had a vegetable crumble in the end which was o.k. It was all served to a high standard. Room clean and staff helpful and efficient. It might be cheaper to book online rather... More

Just had a very pleasant and welcoming one night stay at Y Branwen. Clean and comfortable room. Restaurant was good, small menu choice but nice as was the full breakfast. Good choice of real ale for my husband!.

We were pleased to find the hotel had good parking as this can be tricky in Harlech. We were greeted by a friendly woman who showed us to our room. Clean, comfortable and a good size. We had our evening meal the first night in the restaurant. Good service and great quality pub food.we slept well and enjoyed our breakfasts... More

Excellent value for money, good helpful staff, very nice evening meal and breakfast. Stopped one night while on short tour of wales on motorbikes. Would recommend to fellow bikers based on my own experience.

Excellent reception from staff and the food has improved with new chef. A walk to Royal St. David's Golf Club makes the position even more attractive. Never stayed but used the place as pub and restaurant which shows its versatility even though it is a small establishment. Try the local beer you will not be disappointed.

Was late getting there first night and the owner actually took the time to call me on my mobile to check everything was ok. although I couldnt answer as I was driving, but it was typical of the caring attitude shown all the way...

I booked in here for 6 rooms over 3 nights for my guys golf trip in early June and was not disappointed. The moment we walked in the door, Jo the owner made sure our welcome was special. They accommodated our late arrival and early morning departures without a hitch and even took up the service a notch by providing... More

I stayed at Y Branwen in mid-May. Everything was absolutely fantastic: the hosts, breakfast, the room. And there's nothing quite like staying underneath a castle on a cliff. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!
