We're a couple in our mid-thirties and we stayed here for 3 nights early August 2014. It was perfectly located for exploring the area by car, parking up and going for long walks in the hills. Equally for driving the 3 mins to Harlech to savour the glorious beach, journeying a little further round the bay to Portmerion, Porthmadog and... More

Stayed here after a wedding in Portmeirion. Wonderfully welcoming and kind hosts, very accommodating of our last minute booking. Breakfast was delicious and perfectly timed, with warm toast and our nicely scrambled and poached eggs arriving at the same time. Immaculate and cosy rooms and common areas. And what a setting! Mountains and fields (including horse) all round, but easy... More

I saw this guest house in June whilst staying in Porthmadog in a "budget box" type of hotel. It looked so inviting that I booked 3 nights in September.The reviews I read are totally accurate,from the warm welcome with tea or coffee to the immaculate rooms and well cooked breakfasts which set you up for the day.Forget your guide books...

This is an excellent B&B, and Gwynfor and Deborah are good humoured and helpful. When returning at the end of a day it's like coming home. The room facilities were appreciated, including the lighting - something which is often neglected elsewhere. The location is good for views and for accessing many Snowdonia attractions - the two railways and Portmerion are... More

I stayed there for 6 nights and didn't want to leave!! It was brilliant and I have no complaint or criticism. You get a very warm welcome from the hosts Gwynfor and Deborah and nothing is too much trouble for them in making your stay comfortable and pleasurable. If you need help planning sightseeing or hiking in Snowdonia then Gwynfor... More

Wonderful hosts welcomed us with a pot of tea after a long journey from Ipswich, couldn't be more helpful and accommodating.Rooms are spotless and bright. Breakfast is great, location good,couldn't fault a thing. Gwynfor even rang me on my mobile to tell me I had left my boots in the room within 5 mins of leaving so turned round and... More

I stayed 3 nights with my husband and we got a very warm welcome from Deborah and afterwards from Gwyn and they were really helpful giving us advice on what to do and on the local restaurants. The house is cosy and clean, but our room was a bit to small. The view in the morning was glorious!

Just got back after staying for two nights, great value, lovely staff who make you very welcome. Room was spotlessly clean, great breakfast choice - Manx kippers are delicious :-) would definately stay again.

I completed a charity walk up Mount Snowdon this weekend and this B+B proved to be an excellent choice to base myself. I was greated by Deborah and offered a hot drink, she advised me on the area places to eat and see and gave me tips about my excursion to Snowdon. My room, the single was very clean and... More

Location We originally looked at staying in the Snowdonia region of North Wales for a bank holiday weekend, with a view to getting in some beaches and a trip up in to the hills. Gwarch Ynys proved to be cheaper than other similar B&Bs in the area, probably due to being set back from the beach quite a way. However,... More
