I was recommended this B&B by a colleague from work and we were not disappointed at all. A warm welcome and very comfortable quality rooms that were spotlessly clean, a fantastic breakfast with plenty fo everything, really sets you up for the day.

Room Tip: Sea View is always nice

Do not be put off by the outside - This is the best B & B we had throughout our trip of the UK and Europe. Eric & Shelagh can do no more to make you welcome. Our room was imaculate with comfortable bed and lovely furnishing, After an excellent breakfast we were waved on our way as long friends. We will be back next year for more welsh lessons. Thank you Eric & Shelagh.

Visited here in July 2012 This was our second visit and certainly wont be the last. Eric and Shelagh are lovely, warm, friendly people who you feel you have known all your life. After many years in the business standards have not dropped. Everything is very clean and up to date, the rooms very comfortable and the breakfast excellent quality. Wonderful views from the bedrooms if you get a room on the front. Its well worth the walk up three flights of stairs.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms would be equally good as they are all quiet, but the front rooms have beautiful...

I would just like to endorse what the other guests have said. We had a room at the back of the guest house and it was very quiet and restful. The breakfasts were lovely, so much nicer than the help yourself buffet style breakfasts at hotels. The free unrestricted street parking was a bonus. The guest house is very conveniently situated with beautiful views across the bay and Eric and Shelagh were very welcoming friendly hosts. Highly recommend

From the time we arrived to the time we left we couldnt have felt more welcome. We came as strangers and left as friends. Eric and Shelagh are some of the nicest people we have ever met. Having travelled to many parts of the world to find the service and welcome recieved at the Wavecrest was among the best. The hearty breakfast was of a homemade taste made with care and a lot of attention. This B&B has been long-lasting (I can see why) and its ashame that we hadn't found it earlier. An amazing way to spend a weekend break! I would definetely recommend !

Room Tip: Sea view rooms worth having !

The welcome is what makes Wavecrest standout. Eric and Shelagh are outstanding hosts, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Our room looking over the seafront was spacious and bright. Breakfast was excellent.

Barmouth is a great location for an activity break. Highly recommend the cycle ride to Dolgellau (not very energetic - flat all the way on an old railway line). Can walk Cader Idris from the hotel, but quite a long lead in/out: easier with a car. Snowdon/Glydir/Darnedd is a little over an hour's drive. Wavecrest offers lock-up bike storage.

The decor and bathroom are getting tired in places, but the value for money is excellent and the warmth of the welcome more than makes up. Fully deserved 5 stars.

Room Tip: Sea view from the front is lovely. We did not have any problems with noise, despite it being onto Ma...

We stayed at the Wavecrest for a weekend and found the Guesthouse and its owners very welcoming. Our room on the first floor, which seemed to have been recently renovated and to a high standard, was comfortable and a good size. The first floor seating area over looking the beach was a good meeting place and would be a nice spot to spend some time if the weather is inclement. The breakfasts were very good with a choice of cereals, fruit and jams as well as the full Welsh breakfast made with quality ingredients. We would recommend the Wavecrest as it is a lovely place to stay and in a great location for the beach and the town.
