My favourite place to stay when I visit Wales. Friendly and welcoming staff, comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms and one of the best restaurants around in the same building. I was lucky enough to stay during a change of menu, so got to try a few tasty summer creations.

Me and my girlfriend recently ate here while on a trip to Snowdonia and absolutely loved the experience. We booked in advance (only a few hours beforehand) as we had read that this was recommended and you can see why, as the restaurant only seats about 25 people and is very popular. The restaurant is set in the basement area... More

Dear fobl114, Thank you for writing such a fantastic review, sounds like you had a great evening with us! We always recommend booking in advance as many evenings we are full and although we try hard to accommodate anyone who hasn't booked sometimes it's just not possible. We price our menu at £26.95 for three courses and believe it to... More

From our very first welcome, we thought that this restaurant was of a very good quality. (It is also a hotel, but we only used the restaurant, which is in the old cellar, which was lovely!). The service was excellent and very efficient and the food that we ate was of a good quality, with a good wine list to... More

Just back from a long weekend at Y Meirionnydd. Unfortunately there had been a shower leak in the room above and so we were relocated, without drama, to a light and spacious suite needless to say we were delighted. Dinner in the cellar restaurant was atmospheric and quite lovely, as were the hosts, and extremely good value, given the absolute... More

We stayed at Y Meirionnydd for 5 nights over the Easter break and was not only blessed with the great weather but also with our accommodation. The hotel is perfectly situated in the town of Dolgellau and was a great base for touring the area. We arrived quite late on Saturday night and even through the restaurant and hotel were... More

Dear Marion, thank you both so much for writing such a great review, it was kind and very touching. The weather was amazing of course and shows Snowdonia at its best - the mountains, lakes, the sea combined with the lovely rooms and food at Y Meirionnydd make for an unbeatable combination, and staying for five nights really gave you...

We stayed at Y Meirionnydd for a total of two nights sampling a total of three rooms. Our family members stayed in the Arran and we stayed in both the Eyri and Meirion. Arran was tasteful and was furnished with quality and our family members were happy. However it is sandwiched between the toilets for the restaurant and what we... More

Hello fSnob, thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review, always helpful to us. Arran will be refurbished later in April as we've mentioned previously but I'm not sure where the noise was coming from as we would certainly not be moving furniture around overnight. We take great pride in our spotlessly clean rooms and have... More

stayed for one night during a 2 day walking break - the room was very well appointed though I think that drainage in the area was not devised for the use of power showers and I had to be circumspect in how I used the shower. Choice at breakfast was particularly good and the staff were particularly helpful - highly... More
