This is a great B&B, lovely people, very helpful and a lovely spot over looking the ocean. The place is maintained very well and is exceptionally clean. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.

We stayed at Morwendon House for 2 nights, was a great choice, could not have been more happy with it. The setting being right on the coast was beautiful, and we were lucky enough to be there in some rough weather. Will always remember listening to the sound of the wind at night and the rain on the windows. Looking out the big windows in our room and seeing the waves and clouds rolling in was awesome

The food was even better. Coffee was very good, and the kippers were delicious. We also had dinner one night, was one of more memorable meals we had while traveling around the UK, I highly recommend it.

All in all it was a perfect stay, is a great place

I booked this Guest House for 3 nights.
Really enjoyed the positioning of the B&B just outside of town. The staff Geoff & Teresa Challenor was really friendly, our room was really nice and cleaned everyday to a high standed A****, also the breakfast was excellent fresh food everyday really nice food A****. Set in a nice location to get the train in to the town or other towns and the are a few walks you can go on in to the mountains. ALL IN ALL A REALLY NICE PLACE TO GO TO.

Room Tip: higher floors have less head room if tall great if your small :)

I booked this Guest House for four days including the Easter period. Geoff and Teresa were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and they did extra things that I was so grateful for. My "holiday" was for sentimental reasons and Geoff and Teresa were so kind. These two people are amazing. I felt so at home that one evening I came out of my room to have dinner in the restaurant in my slippers!!The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The views from the Guest house were fabulous. I had the room with the shower only (room No.1) and the shower was in good working order with plenty of pressure. The breakfast was excellent. Always hot and plenty of it. I had evening meal for 3 nights and the choice would please anyone. The wine list was as good as any 4* Hotel. Geoff is a really good chef and every meal was top class. You could not possibly be hungry after the size of the meals and the quality. Desserts were scrumptious. I weighed this morning and in four days I have put on 2lbs.

If you want to go somewhere where the owners treat you like family then visit Morwendon House. I shall return in the not too distant future. I shall remember my visit with very fond memories. Thank you Geoff and Teresa.

Room Tip: I only saw another room which was No.2. The bed looked kingsize and can be altered to twins. The vie...

I wouldn't bother looking for anywhere else to stay in North Wales - this is the only place you need to know about. The location is superb - you've got the clearest English sea I've ever seen with a huge sandy beach, sand dunes and rocks to play on. Mountains that reach almost to the sea. The river estuary with the amazing Mawddach Trail walk - stunning views all round. And the gorgeous guest house is literally *right* on the sea front, with 180 degree sea views. Can't get better than that.
Geoff and Teresa are the best hosts - welcoming, obliging, and totally top notch when it comes to running a guest house. They gave us all the best info about where to go, which walks were best, how to get there etc, and Geoff even dropped us off at the bus stop in the village so we didn't have to leave our car in a car park all day.
The guest house itself is grand without being stuffy; the guest lounge has a fabulous bay window you can sit in so even if your room doesn't have a big sea view, you can still while away the hours just gazing out the window. Dinner was superb, and breakfast just as good. Super-soft sheets on the bed too - perfect.
We'll definitely be going back to Morwendon House, it was a perfect 3-night break and next time we'll stay longer.

Room Tip: Room 2 has a superb bay window with a 180degree sea view!

Warm welcome; Geoff and Teresa instantly became friends, and nothing was too much trouble. That's why we do B+B - our hosts become friends rather than servants. Lovely place, immaculately clean and beautifully decorated, with stunning sea-views, and so-o warm (in the bitter cold of March 2013) And the food! Out of this world! Breakfast was generous, and Geoff's considerable artistry in the kitchen is splendidly displayed at dinner.

Thank you both for a wonderful stay.
