Walking the Glyndwr's Way last week, I was a bit put off by the review which said this was the worst someone had stayed at. Am happy to report that it was far from the worst - in terms of warm welcome, cleanliness and value for money, it was one of the best. And the breakfast sausages were extremely good... More

Comfy bed, great breakfast and friendly service at a fair price set our group of six up nicely for the 16 mile walk to Llanbrynmair which for us was the first day of walking the Northern part of the Glyndwr Way

We were walking Glyndwr's Way, so we stayed at 10 B&Bs along the way, and as we reviewed them this is the one we enjoyed least. The room was clean and had an exceptional number of cushions! There was a TV with freeview channels. The ensuite was a little aged. Breakfast was in a rather crowded room and both the... More

I have stayed twice now at the Maenllwyd and have no qualms in recommending it to others. The rooms are clean and well equipped, the breakfast is great and Gareth is a friendly host. The hotel is located at the end of the main shopping street and about a 5 minute walk from the famous clock tower. It has ample... More

Count on Gareth to treat you right. Reasonably priced, clean, well-located. Only regret was not being able to stay for breakfast, due to our schedule. I screwed up our arrival date by one day and took Gareth by surprise-- but, no worries, he adapted and got us the rooms we needed without any fuss at all. So very accommodating. Easy... More

On travelling through Machynlleth on a horrible winter evening in December, coming back from a family function in West Wales, we popped into a garage and asked if there were any guest houses that were recommendable. Maenllwyd Guest house was the place mentioned, so after taking directions, we went to check it out. My family and me were more than... More

Having been advised by Gareth in Sept that he was holding a beer festival in November that we may be interested in, my partner confirmed a double room booking for the Saturday. Arrived around 2.00pm and waited for 15 mins but nobody showed up. Wandered down to beer festival to check it out and returned around 4.30pm to the B... More
