I have stayed all over the world from campsites to 5 star all inclusives in the Caribbean but I have never enjoyed a night away as much as I did last weekend at Bryn Mair House. After a great day walking on Cadair Idris my wife and I were greated by Jan and were soon sat in the lovely guest lounge enjoying a big pot of tea, fresh coffee and home made welsh cakes! Jan's welcome and enthusiasm is infectious! The ambience is just perfect, lovely decor, a stereo to use in the guest lounge, antique telescope for viewing the mountains, coal fire lit, great views, newspaper and a pile of interesting books and magazines to flick through.
Our bedroom was fantastic - crisp sheets, spotless, tasteful decor, dressing gowns.... we had plumped for the largest room with a seperate private bathroom across the landing with a seperate shower and roll top bath. In a fridge hidden on the landing Jan (or Pete) had put us fresh milk and bottled water and had left enough room for us to chill our wine which we enjoyed later in the lounge after a meal out in town.
Breakfast was cooked fresh and at a time to suit us so we had a lazy lie in as we were kid free for the weekend! And what a breakfast - fresh fruit salad, greek yoghurt, fruit yoghurts, jugs of juices, cereals, local Snowdonia honey, preserves, and a cooked breakfast as good as I have ever eaten - and I've eaten plenty! Local sausages and dry cure bacon complimented with tomatoes, eggs any style, mushrooms, etc etc.
Then, a fresh flask of tea for us to take on another walk on Sunday - the lovely Precipice Walk as recommended by Jan and Pete.
Our first visit but 100% not our last, if only everywhere we stayed could match here for welcome, cleanliness, ambience, decor, thought (fresh milk, corksrew in room, newspaper....).
Bravo Pete and Jan!
