Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We have just had three nights here as a family of four. We came to celebrate New Year and had such an amazing time. This hotel is small but perfectly formed with a truly delicious menu...we have yet to beat the fillet steak....and the wine list is enviable, and great value....The team led by Marc and Nick really work hard to make sure your stay is a special one. We have stayed here three times now at various times of the year and each time it delivers....well done to you all, you deserve all the great feedback.

Stayed: December 2013, traveled with family

This was our second stay here and we were not disappointed. Everything was perfect. We stayed in room Cadir, it was fabulous, so cosy. The view of Cadir was blocked by the rain clouds but we didn't care.
We stayed bed, breakfast and evening meal. Everything cooked to perfection and a wine list to die for. We also loved trying Brecon Gin, so much so I have purchased a bottle for myself.
It was a great weekend away from a busy work schedule and hectic family life. We cannot wait to return.

Myself and Wife have just enjoyed a relaxing weekend at Y Merionnydd. We were in the Mawddach room, which was spacious and comfortable. We stayed for two nights dinner, bed and breakfast at a cost of £99 a night (Winter Special). The owners and all their staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The restaurant food was excellent, tasty, a real treat.

Thank you John for a great review. We are so glad you spoilt yourselves with our fantastic Winter Escape £99 deal, it's only on for a few weekends and is always very popular, especially as we have our own restaurant and bar to complement our lovely rooms. We look forward to seeing you both again in 2014,

We were a party of 8 and have just returned from a very comfortable stay at Y Meirionnydd. We booked for two nights and ate in their restaurant the first night. The food was very good, excellent shrimp tails and salmon starters followed by
wonderful lamb served with great local veg. Cheese board was excellent served with olive bread and oat crackers. The vegitarian option was limited but was very good indeed. Wine list was extensive and good value. We had a very good Merlot at 17 pounds. Local beers were also very good. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. We would recommend Y Meirionnydd.

Dear Aine, thank you so much for your lovely comments, I think you deserve a round of applause for organising the weekend. It really was a pleasure to have you all staying and dining with us, we're a great place for getting together with friends and family without having to make the beds and wash up...leave all that to us!
We hope to see you all next year, we look forward to it,

Having only just returned from this place I was determined to quickly put into words how fabulous this place really is...Mark and Nick were the perfect hosts and we felt at home the moment we walked in. The service is impeccable and we felt so relaxed and well cared for, a home away from home, we will definitely be returning, if not just for the absolutely delicious food!! Highly recommended, very relaxing atmosphere, gorgeous rooms...cannot fault it!

We have just returned from a very comfortable stay at Y Meirionnydd. We booked for three nights intending to only eat in their restaurant the first night , but it was so good we ate there every night! The restaurant is in the cellar of the building in the old jail, and is cosy and beautifully decorated. The staff were very attentive and the food delicious. They also have an excellent wine list, the house champagne at under £30 was amazing. The room was very clean and spacious with an extremely comfortable bed. We did have a bit of trouble getting the shower to behave and the bathroom door stuck at the bottom but we were happy to put these down to the quirks of an old building. Cooked breakfast was freshly prepared and really good, the first course would perhaps have benefitted from some fresh fruit other than bananas every morning, but still very enjoyable. Other reviewers mention the car parking situation, it is a little inconvenient but the hotel is in the centre of an ancient town and car parking is obviously awkward. The town council would do better to reduce the high cost of the public car parks to encourage tourism, but this is not the hotel's fault. We would recommend Y Meirionnydd.

Stayed a s a couple for 4 days in September.Lovely quiet room at he back with a view of Cader Idreis when the clouds lifted. Bed, bedding, bathroom all exceptionally clean and comfortable.All the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful.
Had a packed breakfast one morning, as we were leaving early to climb Snowdon, which was very good and all that you could want. Breakfast in the dining room were excellent with good coffee.
Ate in their restaurant twice which is in the cellar of the old building. Again could not fault the quality of the food.
We did have a small incident when the hot bath tap wouldn't shut off. This was dealt with swiftly and efficiently, with offer of moving to another room and free drinks in the bar later.
Local plumber turned up and all was resolved.

Would definitely return and massively recommend.
