When first entering The Brigands we were greeted by Frank the manager , what a truly nice man and fantastically helpful with a good sense of humour. A totally faultless stay , first class breakfast , lunch and evening meal . A lovely Inn with breathtaking surroundings. The best place I have ever stayed . Highly recommended. Thanks to Frank...

Fab hotel, lots of charm and charector. The staff are brilliant under the watchful eye of Frank along with great food. The views are breath taking, we loved the residents lounge. Good wifi connection in all areas of the hotel which is invaluable when you run your own business. We will definitely be back. Cheers Nigel & Kim

Easy to find, being just off the road to Mach (which is about 30 mins away). Pleasant bar and resident's lounge. Arrived and shown to Room 2 (really a cupboard which it should be illegal to offer as a room). It is just a single bed with no chair even to sit on or put clothes on. It's cramped dimensions...

Frank Wilson W, Manager at Brigands Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your feed back regarding Room 2. As you was aware this room was booked under the understanding that it was a very small room and did not have an en-suit and I personally apologized to you for not having other accommodation to offer you as we were fully booked. Room 2 is only EVER used for guests... More

Spent a weekend at Brigands Inn in June with a group of friends. Very large comfortable bedroom, staff attended to our needs and good food. Frank the manager, went out of his way to make it a great weekend. We will be back!!!!!!!

Only got to stay here for one night on Saturday on our way back up from South Wales but we'll definitely be back for another longer stay. This establishment is full of character and so very homely and relaxing. We were met by the owner on arrival (Frank I think) who was so welcoming and offered us tea or coffee... More

Arrived on a beautiful sunny evening, swift checkin. Shown to our room which was lovely, beautiful white crisp bed linen and spotlessly clean, bed very comfortable. We decided to eat at the hotel, which was a good decision, food was really good quality, well presented and served by friendly staff. We had one little problem with the lock on our... More

We visited the Brigands Inn as a special treat for our first anniversary on the advice of a friend. After a day in Aberdyfi we arrived in the late afternoon to be welcomed by Frank and shown to a lovely, airy room with superb views over the local hills. After a short rest we went down to dinner in the... More

Stayed here for one night while visiting Snowdonia and absolutely loved it.... The Inn is cozy, comfortable, clean and Frank and his staff couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We stayed in room 10 which overlooks a main road but don't be put off by that.. It wasn't a problem at all. Had a lovely meal in the evening... More
