“Nice Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2006

We stayed for one night in Y Branwen. Recently refurbished it had a very fresh feel about it. The room was quite small and very warm but that can't be helped due to the extreme outside temperature. Also no view as there was a dry stone wall directly outside the window but as we were there for only one night we spent very little time in the room. The room itself was very clean with nice linen and towels and the bed very comfortable. Shower very powerful. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant served good food. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to stay in the area.

I stayed at Y Branwen for a weekend with my school friends. I was very impressed with the standard of furnishings in the bedrooms and both the hotel and bar / restaurant areas were decorated in a modern way and were spotlessly clean. The staff were very friendly and accomodated our group perfectly. Excellent wine list and some good food on the menu.

Just returned from a 2 night stay at Y Branwen hotel. They had only been open for 10 days after an extensive refurbishment. The place reeks of good taste and style and obviously a lot of thought has gone in to making this small hotel stand out with lots of nice touches . The welcome was very friendly and the service throughout our stay was attentive but relaxed. Room number 1was lovely- big comfortable bed with good linen and a trendy en-suite with huge fluffy white towels- above average for the very reasonable nightly rate which includes both a continental and cooked breakfast, also provided to a high standard. Only criticism would be that the restaurant menu is rather limited at present- not a problem for a short stay but if eating there every night for a week or so, you might struggle to chose a different dish for each night. What is on offer though is good value, good quality and stylishly presented. Overall however, I would highly recommend Y Branwen and would definitely stay there again if in that beautiful part of the world again.
