“Outdated!”
Reviewed December 13, 2011

This is a bed & breakfast grossly overpriced. We stayed for two nights, the bedroom was a little damp with cobwebs. The bed was too soft. There was no shower gel or shampoo and the room wasn't made up on the second day. This meant we didn't have clean or dry towels. There was no hairdryer either, luckily a friend was staying at the same place so I borrowed hers. Breakfast was ok, despite my cornflakes being out of date.
Not the standard I expected when paying £90 per night.
However the owners were pleasant enough.

This is arguably one of the best spots in Wales. The Tal-y-llyn lake is idyllic, peaceful and magical. Perfect for romantic getaway. There is no mobile signal, TV, street lights or Wifi and that is all a bonus. For you are alone with the beautiful countryside and this makes for a very relaxing break away from it all.

The owners, Angela and Brian are just great and can't do enough to meet your needs. The evening meal was delicious. The price was very reasonable too. I loved the informal, relaxed atmosphere. Just a great place to unwind and chill out.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Pen-y-Bont Hotel in Talyllyn is a 16th Century Coaching Inn situated on the South West shore of Llyn Mwyngil (Talyllyn Lake) in Southern Snowdonia, Wales. Our location at the foot of Cadair Idris is magical and uniquely beautiful, the views you see here are shown by many yet only fully seen from our premises. We offer a warm welcome to all our visitors and share our knowledge of the local area, helping you to get the most out of your stay in this serene Celtic landscape. Many Welsh myths are centred here, and the landscape is untouched by development. Within the valley we have virtually no mobile phone signals, although there is free WiFi throughout the Hotel Building & we have Flat screen TVs in all the rooms. We have five rooms, a Bar and a Restaurant. Our Beer Garden is where you can see Talyllyn at it's best, and is a sensational place to eat on a warm Summer's day. At other times you can cosy up by one of our log fires in the Fireside Restaurant and Bar. Come and enjoy our Home-cooked meals with Real Chips and Real Ale, in one of the most stunning locations in Wales. ... more   less
