We have been staying in and around Harlech for the past 16 years and this is by far the best B&B in the area! The views are breathtaking and so enticing, we were blessed by good weather so took the opportunity to cross the road and raise a glass (or two) of bubbles at the viewing point in the warm... More

Maelgwyn House is a wonderful B&B. Bridget & Derek are charm personified. They both went out of their way to attend to the small details which really made a difference. Their breakfasts are delicious. I can't overstate the excellence of their establishment. Arden

This B&B was without a doubt the nicest I have had the privilege to stay at. The owners went out of their way to see to my comfort beginning with picking up a very tired lady from the train station. Even though it wasn't anything they had to do they helped me by finding me the route to Caernarfon to... More

My wife (Sarah) and I (David) have just returned from our anniversary weekend at Maelgwyn House. In every respect it is an exceptional B&B. The house is creatively and tastefully decorated and furnished to a very high standard. Derek is a talented artist and his work covers the walls of the house, both in the shared and private areas, which... More

This was our first visit and it was as good as the reviews suggested. We had a large room with a view of the sea and the castle. Stunning for sunsets. The bed was very comfortable, there were seats in the window so we could admire the view and the bathroom was spotless. Tea and coffee making facilities in the... More

What a lovely homely place in an outstanding position with wonderful views of Harlech. The owners can't do enough for you. Their sea view rooms have plenty of home comforts. The bed is so comfortable. There's a lounge, plenty of videos. Derick was an artist and his paintings were amazing, He was a lovely man, really interesting to listen to.... More

The service is excellent, the rooms tastefully decorated and impeccably clean and the... More

We enjoyed this b&b so much last year that we rearranged our travel plans ( visiting Lleyn Peninsula ) so as to incorporate another visit. We were not disappointed - Bridget & Derek are wonderful hosts & the warmest of welcomes is afforded to everyone. Rooms are very comfortable ( got to recommend those with a sea view - a... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this lovely B & B. We had rooms 1 & 2 - large, comfortable rooms on the first floor with huge windows overlooking the sea and Harlech Castle. The property is in a quiet position only a short walk from the village, with its shops, restaurants etc. It is also a pleasant walk down... More
