We stayed at Brigydon on Sat 2nd and Sun 3rd April.
The location - up a rather steep hill, but not an issue for anyone who is able bodied and only 5 mins from the seafront. The advantage of being away from the seafront was the tranquility - we left the window open to listen to an owl hooting, undisturbed by traffic or revellers.
The room: beautifully clean, very comfortable bed with crisp fresh linen, great 'rain' shower in the en-suite, mesmerising sea view.
The hosts - Linda and Nigel are great hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to ensure we had everything we could possibly need. Nigel gave us some great tips on the surrounding countryside and places to visit.
The breakfast - what a treat and what a choice! The table was loaded with a fresh fruit platter, yoghurts, croissants, toast, cereal, nuts, juice, iced water, even an avocado! Hot breakfast is selected from a menu and includes porridge, a full English (or Welsh ;) or smoked fish. The bacon was just superb, best I've ever tasted.
Overall - would definitely go back and we were rather sad to leave.
Hints and tips - take plenty of cash as several businesses in Aberdyfi (e.g. the Indian restaurant) only take cash or cheque and the cash machine was out of order when we visited.
