Beautiful little b and b! We had a lovely stay we were in the attic room known as the harlech room! But beware of low ceilings I kept bumping my head!! Peter the proprietor was lovely! He picked us up from the station we would never have walked up the hill! Back to the room now loved all the extra... More

We really enjoyed meeting you and your dog. Next time a puppy as well? It was fortunate that we had our only dog friendly room available for you that night. We think that room works well for dog owners as it has its own entrance so we can keep the rest of the house dog free. More

What a really lovely place rent a room. To get Pen y Garth you first have climb a step hill, easy in a car. But when you get there the treat begins.

The best B and B we have ever stayed in ! Excellent views, hospitality and breakfast. If I could give six stars out of five then I would. So quiet and peaceful, the only problem was the lack of eating places in Harlech.

We do not mind six stars! The pub is now doing food again which helps on the days that the other eating places are closed. We never tire of the views of the mountains and beach from our house which change constantly with the weather and the seasons. More

Having cycled through a storm, we arrived soaked and bedraggled, but received a very warm welcome. Our bikes were stored safely (valet parking!) and our waterproofs taken to a drying room. We were then shown to a beautiful, spacious room with a wonderful view across Harlech Castle, to the sands and mountains beyond. The bedroom had a supply of Fairtrade... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly and welcoming(but not overbearingly so) -even giving us a lift from the railway station and providing little touches such as homemade Welsh cakes. Beautiful views in a very comfortable room. And an excellent breakfast including homemade bread. One of the nicest B and Bs we have stayed in for quite some time.

Peter was very welcoming and the house is wonderful. His hospitality is outstanding and provides a positive stay. The only draw back to the stay is the eating options in the town. They are very limited to non existing. However if you can get around this your stay will be evrything you want.
