Maelgwyn House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 14 Harlech B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Usually I write extensive reviews, but I think everything is written already by other guests. We are frequent travellers, not only in Europe, and this place is all that you can ask for from a b&b. Suggestion, ask for a seaview room, but from experience, the others are good too!

The attention to detail in every area by Bridget and Derek was beyond anything we experienced in are seventeen nights on holiday at B&B's throughout Ireland Scotland and Wales. I believe that says it all -- you are going to want to stay at the Maelgwyn House. You will not find in my opinion a nicer spot.

Room Tip: The two front rooms have wonderful views.

Hidden away in a quiet part of Harlech, the Maelgwyn House offers spectacular views over the coast and surrounding country.

We stayed in the 'Cosy Attic Room'; which was clean,comfortable and had excellent views overs the coast.

Breakfast was served in a light and airy room; and there was plenty of choice.

The hosts were very friendly and welcoming to us; and we will be making another visit to Maelgwyn House when we next visit Harlech.

Room Tip: Excellent website, which shows all room interiors

We stayed in two nights with Bridget and Derek and it was excellent. Both Bridget and Derek were so welcoming and we enjoyed the conversations. The views from the b&b was great. Breakfast was very satisfying. The room was clean and comfortable. We accidentally took the key with us after we left the B&B but they were very cool with that. We would love to go back.

We have just stayed 2 nights with Bridget and Derek at Maelgwyn House and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We booked 4 rooms and all were delightful. The views are amazing, the rooms well appointed and the welcome warm.
There was a good breakfast selection, our party chose full welsh breakfasts which were generous, and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon - all well prepared.
The weather was very hot and each room had a good fan to keep us cool if we needed it.
We felt very much at home and thoroughly recommend Maelgwyn House to anyone wanting a good quality B and B with a welcoming feel.

Room Tip: The front rooms have a fabulous view

Having decided to take advantage of the exceptional weather, my wife and I decided to head to Wales late in the afternoon for a couple of nights . Deciding on Harlech but without pre-booking any accommodation and arriving after 20:00 , we were so fortunate to be recommended by a local to Bridget and Derek's B&B. On arrival and being shown the small but beautifully furnished double room available at £65 per night, we knew this would be perfect for us and we had been fortunate to stumble across Maelgwyn house. Our 2 days there were extremely pleasant and we found our hosts to be delightful and informative. Harlech itself is a small but alluring town with several restaurants and The Red Lion pub . We would have no hesitation to returning to stay with Bridget and Derek again!
