“Thanks Diane & Iyan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

The welcome we got was excellent, filter coffee and butterfly cake then taken to a beautiful room overlooking the dam complete with four poster, home cooked meal on the first night was excellent and the breakfasts for the following two days were more than enough for a good start vyrnwy itself was stunning and well worth the visit

Room Tip: choice of lake view or room with jaccuzi

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the cottage just up the road from the Gorffwysfa B & B for 2 nights and we had a 3 course meal down at Gorffwysfa on the Friday night - very cosy and personal with fabulous food and I am certain we wouldnt have had such a fab evening had we gone out to eat anywhere else in the area that night. It was well worth the money and we had a good lengthy chat to Dianes husband which was lovely and we were made to feel extremely welcome. Our room and bathroom up at their other site was brill - fab view out over the fields and big power shower in the spacious bathroom not to mention the 4 poster and really squidgy sofa and big armchair that were in the room too (and freeview which was a real home-from-home when we couldnt face going out into the pouring rain!!) We would absolutely recommend staying here and we will definately stay here again, should we be in the area. The breakfast was one of the biggest (and best) that we've ever had while out holidaying - and Diane even offered me tea (quite literally!) and sympathy, when I was nursing a hangover from a wedding we had attended the day before!! Thank you both so much it was a truly lovely experience in the beautiful Welsh surroundings :o)

Room Tip: If you do stay at the Gorffwysfa, when you go outside (if it has been raining), you will see the mos...

My wife and I stayed here while walking Glyndwr's Way and had an excellent experience. The room was gorgeous (and clean) and we had an excellent tea in the beautiful sitting room while we tended our feet. Diane is a serious cook, and the meal she prepared for the evening was outstanding. Her husband (alas, we have forgotten his name) was very warm and spoke with us at length about his childhood in Wales & shared a book of Welsh poems with us. Apparently the proprietors' daughter is also in the hospitality field--it's a family that takes welcoming people seriously. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

A great B&B, very friendly hosts, comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms and clean modern bathrooms. Amazing breakfasts - perfect start for one of many beautiful walks around the lake and the nearby hills!

Room Tip: We loved the 4 poster bed!

We were walking on the Glyndwrs way and had a fantastic welcome (you can't beat a cake and tea on arrival can you?). The room and shower was lovely and the whole place was beautifully decorated. Fantastic breakfast too. All in all one of the best B&B's on the Glyndwr's Way. Recommended!
