We were looking for a last minute, one-night stay. From the first contact with the Sunray Guest House, and throughout the stay, we experienced enthusiasm for the service provided and a helpful, friendly approach. Everywhere we saw was tastefully furnished, with several items of art and furniture drawing our attention. We were told that ours was the only room still to be decorated this year, though we found it above average for decor and condition! The room was clean, well equipped and had plenty of storage space. One window in our room had a view of the sea, and the other of the hill behind the hotel. Our night was very peaceful and comfortable. There is no breakfast provided, but there are plenty of options at cafes right on the doorstep, with the opportunity of eating in the sun whilst enjoying views of the harbour.
Barmouth itself is delightful. A small, attractive town set along a narrow coastal strip and up the lower edge of the hillside, with plenty of interest. A number of hotels, pubs and cafes overlook the harbour and sea, with outdoor seating. Some offer occasional live music, or a disco, and other entertainment in the evenings. There are extensive golden sands or pebble beaches if you prefer. A railway bridge with a pedestrian toll-pathway gives access to the other side of the estauary. The prom is amazingly long for the size of town. Hill-walking is right on your doorstep with the area being surrounded by hills and mountains.
Admittedly our experience was in the sun, but to us Barmouth and the area around it was idyllic. Eating a seafood meal at a harbour cafe (where you could choose your lobster from the pool) was reminiscent of a holiday we very much enjoyed in Madeira. We will definitely be returning to the area with the intention of exploring the hills, if we can bear to leave that wonderful sea air, and can only hope there is a vacancy at the Sunray Guest House at the time. Thanks for a great weekend.
