Wonderful breakfast, lovely room (although at the front you will find some mild road noise) and superb welcome. The local area is ideal for walkers, bird watchers and nature enthusiasts with some excellent pubs and inspiring countryside. Ensure you take the full address and telephone on paper as mobile data reception is poor and the sat nav code will take... More

My wife and I booked Plas Mawr at the last minute even though it was 20 miles from where we were intending to stay. I must say It was well worth the extra petrol. The property has retained many of its original features and has excellent facilities. Breakfast could not be improved, we had a really enjoyable overnight stay. We... More

Tina and David have always made us very welcome and we often feel a little sad when we have to leave, our stay has... More

Stayed here in May 2015 for two nights - lovely large room and ensuite. Breakfast was delicious. Owners are very friendly and hospitable. Only downside was straight onto a fairly busy road which we weren't expecting.

Thank you for your review, and sorry to hear that your stay was not 100% to your expectations. We do state clearly that we are adjacent to the road, and have installed secondary glazing in all front facing rooms to mitigate any noise. Traffic is very low overnight, and all parking is off the road. I am glad that despite... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Plas Mawr. Good location right next to ynys hir bird reserve, and near the osprey sanctuary. very welcoming, professional hosts who produced a great breakfast with lots of choice. Good attention to detail- all the books, maps, snacks, games provided. This makes the difference between a good and a great B and B.

Came to this neck of the woods for business and needed a B+B for 4 days, Plas Mawr was just down the road from my work. The house is right on the main road and my room faced towards it but I found it quiet and not a problem at all. I arrived at 8pm, Dave greeted me and welcomed... More

This is our 3rd stay at this lovely guest house. Very high standards. Cosy and relaxed atmosphere, you are made to feel most welcome. Great position to visit Ynis Hir as it situated just in front of the reserve. You are able to walk to the reserve. I can fully recommend a stay here and breakfasts are amazing.
