“Nice place, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2007

My son and I stayed here after having attended a course at the nearby by Outward Bound Centre because there was no way I was going to drive back home on a Bank Holiday Monday evening. This was a smart move because we got to watch the Town's lantern parade and firework display. We visited the Centre for Alternative Technologies en route home - well worth a visit.

We were in (I think) 'Cant' which is right at the top of the house looking out over the beach and estuary - a great viewing spot for the fireworks. We had the last room in the house.

Everywhere is nicely decorated and in good condition. Our room was spacious, the bed and pillows were wonderful. Little wicker twin seat, TV, a digital alarm clock, but no radio (surely a combined clock radio would have been an easy option). Wide selection of DVDs avalable to borrow down stairs (we worked our way through the first series of Dr Who whilst awaiting the the Fireworks / Parade to kick off)

There is a separate bathroom area with a decent shower and nice towels. There is also a separate small pantry with a fridge cum minibar (lots of interesting goodies in there!), tea and coffee making facilities (including fresh milk in the fridge). A minor niggle is that the cups are rather large but the cafetiere (oh yes, posh coffee) only makes enough for one cup. Decaf ground coffee was also provided.

They don't offer evening meals but were very helpful in making a booking at one of the local eateries for us prior to our arrival. After making the initial booking by phone, I corresponded by email - v quick and efficient responses. They also helped by making a booking for pony trekking (nothing available in the immediate vicinity btw).

The residents' lounge / sitting room is very nice - good choice of magazines and LPs (yes, 12" round things).

Breakfast is served in the lounge / sitting room. Guests are seated at one of two large tables - makes for a more sociable meal. Breakfast was enjoyable with a choice of yogurt, juices, breads, jams and conserves in addition to cooked options (e.g. Smoked Salmon on Scrambled eggs, usual fry up - great bacon and sausage).

The train line runs near by, but the trains are so infrequent and don't run over night that you don't need to worry about that.

Parking is a problem, the main town car park is opposite, but at busy times this can be choc a bloc. The hotel does offer a parking permit rather then putting coins in the parking machine - this is cheaper but you still need a parking space. In fairness, We were there on a very busy day, the next day there were some spaces available (I imagine out of season things are easy). I dropped son and bags off then parked a little way up the road out of town (in the direction of the station) by the Spar Petrol Station - about 10 mins walk back.

No problems with noise either internally or externally.

I think that a wheel chair user would find it difficult to stay here due to the tall thin nature of the building. Somebody needing to use crutches might find it hard going if staying in the upper floors - best advice would be to cll and discuss requirements.

Would we come back? Yes, but if we come back as a family rather than just the two of us we'd need to take an extra room as they don't have space for additional regular sized beds/put you ups in the rooms (think they can do a cot - check directly if you need this). I think all the rooms are doubles.

My husband and I just spent two nights at Llety Bodfor, staying in Dau on the 2nd floor. The hotel is without doubt one of the nicest that I have ever stayed in - and I am very fussy! Immaculate and interesting contemporary decor throughout. The staff were very friendly and really made you feel welcome and spoiled - the perfect way to be treated when you're on holiday!! Our room was nice and big with a lovely view of the beach and the sound of seagulls outside - what a way to wake up in the morning!!

And what can I say about Aberdyfi?! A real traditional seaside haven with everything on its doorstep. Lovely sandy beach right outside the hotel, which had a brass band playing on it on the afternoon that we arrived!! We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather, so enjoyed spending an afternoon on the beach chilling out.

In my opinion, Llety Bodfor is fantastic value for money - especially considering the size of the rooms. I was gutted to leave, and will definitely return for a longer trip to Aberdyfi next time.

  • Liked — Beachfront location, contemporary decor and size of rooms
  • Disliked — Communal breakfast, a bit of door banging, no wireless internet.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at Lletty Bodfor and it was fantastic. We stayed in the Pedwar suite and the view over the estuary each morning was amazing.

The staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly and booked us into the restaurants of our choice, as well as providing the champagne and flowers I requested (This was a honeymoon stay) and recommendations of activities for each day.

This is an absolute gem of a place and we hope to be back there very soon.

Just returned from a weekend break staying at Llety Bodfor, Aberdyfi. Had the most relaxing, peaceful and beautiful weekend. Our room boasted sea views over the Aberdovey estuary and beach, the bed was expansive with crisp white sheets and feather duvet and pillows. There was nothing nicer than relaxing on the leather sofa, glass of champagne in hand, watching the sunset over the distant hills and sand dunes. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful with locally sourced ingredients, organic where available. The staff were friendly and super helpful when recommending and booking spots at local restaurants, as well as suggesting things to do locally.
All in all an excellent stay, we will return!
