A long established very well run restaurant with good service and excellent cooking. If driving park by Harlech castle, there is not much space in the cul de sac by the restaurant. The cosy lounge with good views over Morfa Harlech. Wines are well chosen and reasonably priced. A starter of Scallops with black pudding was generous, nicely presented and... More

Arrived and was immediately shown a suitable room. Member of staff was upfront about the price which we were very satisfied with. Room was spacious, beautifully decorated and very tidy. Went to the restaurant in the evening where staff were very attentive to our dietary needs, altering our orders to avoid my partner's nut allergy. Thoroughly enjoyed dinner and would... More

The first night we had a three course menu and the second night we opted for the five course tasting menu. Food on both occasions very... More

I'm a big fan of the Welsh Rarebits hotels in Wales guide. Found this property. Phoned around 9pm looking for a room that night and they were able to offer me a great room at a great price but I was arriving too late for dinner at 10.30 pm which is fair enough but would definitely make dinner next time....
