My wife and I along with some friends used this B&B after hiking Cader Idris (21.06.14). Upon arrival it was an informal welcome with a very young barmaid showing us to our room. Before doing this she asked us what time we would like breakfast in the morning. We replied "at around 9am". We felt that her response encouraged us... More

We booked the four poster bed room and it was great. Nice large bed and room. Mind your head going through the door. At dinner we had the pork shanks and they were huge! There home made chips were pretty fantastic. Nice garden area for drinking out in. Quaint wee village with nice walks. Only slight let down was breakfast,... More

My husband and I stopped at the Penrhos arms on our way back from Bala. We had a very warm welcome from the staff. Even though it was late May, it was a cold rainy day so we sat by the roaring fire. We shared a started of poached eggs on black pudding. It was very tasty and there was... More

Stayed on Saturday with family. We had a lovely meal with excellent service and very friendly staff. It was a special Birthday for my Mum and it was a surprise that we were there, All the staff knew this and kept the secret. Can't wait to go back again.

Me and a colleague stayed here in May 2014 as we were working at Machynlleth Comedy Festival. Upon checking in we were greeted to a complaint that it was a pain how we were paying which wasn't the welcome we expected! Apart from that the staff were friendly. We ate in the restaurant on the Friday night and had breakfast... More

I have popped in to this pub on many occasions and take great offence as an English person who lives in Wales at the offensive comments by a passer by! The owner of the Hotel is Welsh, but doesn't speak Welsh, the staff who I think are mainly Welsh, DO NOT SPEAK WELSH to annoy customers. They speak Welsh as... More

Just spent 4 nights at the penrhos over Easter and the staff and management couldn't do enough for you. Rooms were lovely and comfortable and cleaned daily. Fantastic home cooked food which was delicious and plentiful (makes a change from the processed food most places serve). Can't recommend it enough. Your loss if you drive by.

After a lovely Easter Sunday the family stopped off for some lunch. Initially the locals & staff who had previously spoken English until I joined the bar to be served, suddenly the lingo switched to welsh. The food was so disappointing. Apparently there was no mash potato left but they had put extra roast potatoes on the plate. chopping 1... More

Just had a meal at the Penrhos and was very disappointed. Lunchtime on Saturday and the menu choice was more like a greasy spoon cafe. It was very quiet in there, not surprised. The chips that came with the bar meal were dark brown, tasted burnt and were really soggy. Can't ever remember leaving 90% of the chips on a... More
