“Gwernan Hotel - 10/10”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Beautiful location, perfect for either Dolgellau town (5 mins down the road by car), or climbing Cadair Idris (Fox's Path and Pony Path are right beside it).

Friendly, clean, cosy room, lovely food, and generally a pleasure all-round. Highly recommended and I shall return sometime soon I hope.

Room Tip: My room was called "Arran" and was perfect for my solo trip. A cosy room, decently sized...

The experience of staying at the Gwernan Hotel is unique and wonderful on account of a real awareness [on the part of the owners] of what most guests look for in a relaxing break; namely a genuinely 'care-led' attention to detail, whether it be the excellent food, clean, high quality rooms, wine list, preparedness to go the extra mile (picnics, otter sightings on demand...) and yes, of course, the backdrop of an extraordinary lake-side setting + Cader Idris doesn't hurt! Our review would not be complete without mentioning the hospitality from the charming ‘Front of House’ duo, in the form of 2 welcoming Cocker Spaniel sisters.

This small but classy hotel is perfectly situated, between beautiful Lake Gwernan (with a lakeside walk and fishing rights) and the massive Cadair Idris which can be climbed from the hotel door. The rooms are very comfortable and enjoy great views, the bar is small but well stocked, the food locally sourced and well presented. Very well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are wonderful.

Just back from a perfect 3 night stay at the Gwesty Gwernan and could'nt fault it in any way,shape or form. The hotel is superb in every way from the decor,cleanliness,service,location,furnishings and all in a stunning location.
The owners are very friendly and helpful without been invasive and anyone wanting a quiet break
in luxury with breakfasts second to none will struggle to find a better place.
We will certainly be making a return trip and would recommend the Gwesty Gwernan to all.

Room Tip: Do'nt think you could go wrong with any room here !

Great place. Great location. Lovely rooms and excellent hosts who really have 'gone the extra mile' to provide all the finishing touches. Sipping a beer by the side of the lake after a long walk on the hills was just wonderful.

Lovely hotel situated in quiet area overlooking a lake, open fires and good food add to good atmosphere. Owners are extremely helpful making your stay special. Trout fishing on the lake was the final touch for me, would definately recommend.

Warm welcome (couple who run this place and friendly and helpful).
Food good (both breakfast and evening menu - optional).
Relaxed atmosphere.
Thoroughly recommended.
