Reviewed April 14, 2013

I just reached home after a weekend in Snowdonia, and having stayed in many top hotels around the world, can say this ranks amongst the best, despite being a small family run business.

We chose this hotel as it's ideal location for accessing Snowdon, which we climbed on Saturday. we were originally a party of 14, which the owner, Rachel, managed to squeeze in despite being booked up. However the cold Easter and the snow that still covered Snowdon put some of the group off, so in the end only 6 made the trip. Rachel still gave us a huge welcome and made us feel like her personal family guests. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Rachel and her staff made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. She still gave us our original four rooms at her own loss. The hotel is clean, smart, modern, and its location by a beautiful river is brilliant. Free parking is available outside. the restaurant served amazing food, and having eaten in all of the best restaurants in London, this place is up there with the best. Most of the ingredients are local sourced and Head Chef Simon is great. he even went out of his way to make my friend veggie sausages when they didn't have any on the menu. Its not cheap but the food is worth it. many of the diners were not even residents, but guests from other hotels. The price included the best breakfast you will get anywhere. def try the sausages. Great additional features are free wifi, all the tea and coffee you can drink (for free). This is such a refreshing approach compared to the big brands where everything is charged for. The rooms are a good size, very clean and modern in appearance. Some rooms have showers whilst others have baths. There is even a bunk bed room for kids.

The thing I loved about this hotel is that Rachel goes out of her way to look after you and gives you loads of help and advice to get the most out of your stay. If you haven't been to Snowdonia before, I recommend you stay here and ask Rachel to help you plan your outings, where to go, what to do, etc. I shall def be visiting again with my family.

Bryn Tyrch is a super place to stay after a hard day walking. Imagine the scene.... Tired and hungry intrepid sorts entering with large rucksacks/ cases to be met with the sight of a roaring fire and some serious real ale, comfy sofas and the prospect of delicious food on the menu.
We stayed in a room that looked out onto a snow covered Moel Siabod, and despite the fact that the inn is on the A5, we had the most peaceful night's sleep. The room was tastefully decorated and our seven year old son was looked after well. There were quite a few families with children staying.
One little niggle.... either some of kitchen staff didn't turn up or they need to get some extra help because we waiting a little too long for our food to arrive.

We stayed for two nights last week. We've visitied many times over the years, and the place improves each time. The food is exceptionally good, especially the varied vegetarian options (tell them in advance if you want a veggie breakfast, and the chef will provide home made sausages). The menu is unusual, with something for everyone, and the portions are very generous. I'd say it is excellent value for money, given the top quality dishes provided. The rooms are really stylish, and immaculately clean. All in all a very comfortable stay - I would not want to stay anywhere else in the area.

A long weekend in the mountains, with three friends. Bryn Tyrch, is in a great location with a mountain stream across the road, and views of the mountains from the rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms very comfortable, and clean, food is good, with people booking from around the area to eat there. Ideal for a walk up Snowdonia, which entails a five minute drive, leave early as car parks fill up.

Me and my husband stayed here over Christmas/new year with a family group, this hotel has a real homely feeling to it were nothing isn't to much effort, the food here is a centre point with the chef Simon giving his customers a culinary journey, we all agreed the food was something else, each day we were here there was 2/3 new things on the menu 2 choose from, me and my partner really like the Asian dishes (tandoori halibut being are fav) massive king prawns, we come here 4 times a year and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else, the food keeps us coming back time and time again and so many of are friends saying the same.

Pleasant staff meets amazing ! Amazing food, we stayed here over a weekend! Food was the centre piece of this hotel, we had the pleasure of meeting the hotels head chef Simon who cooked us some of the biggest king prawns I've eaten this side of Mumbai, seriously amazing place. Staff attentive but at times a little of the boil, especially two members of staff talking in there own language and we had to interrupt to get served. Truly amazing food! Than you

We stayed over a 4 day weekend in February 2013 as a base for some climbing in Snowdonia - Capel Curig is a 5-10 minute drive from Snowdon, and there's plenty other (quieter) mountains even closer. We had a very decent room, with all the facilities that you'd expect, but the real strength of this hotel is the quality of the service and food. The staff are attentive and helpful, service is quick and nothing is too much effort. As plenty of others have mentioned, the food is really superb, and the dinner menu changes every day. For the quality of level of service provided, Bryn Tyrch is fantastic value for money. We will be back.
