“Little piece of heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2011

Stayed here for two nights as a base to go exploring North Wales. The hotel is run by Steve and Jane who were really fab hosts and couldn't be more helpful. The hotel looks like something out of a picture postcard with Azalelas,Chamelia and Wisteria in full bloom when we arrived.
Our room overlooked the gardens and was lovely to just sit and drink a coffee/tea on the verandah in the morning.
We had all the intentions of using this as base to explore but decided to chill and have a a few drinks on the lawns both days we were there. However, we did walk to Shell Island which is close buy and spent the day walking and crabbing with the kids.
Food at the hotel was excellent and a very good price. The breakfast is included in the price and well worth it.
The room we stayed in was immaculate and the only gripe was the double bed we had was a little short in the leg. Perhaps when booking this may need mentioning if one is on the tall side.That apart we got 5 star service in a 2 star hotel
Dog owners will also be happy to know they're welcome to stay.

My husband and I stayed during minus 10 temperature, whilst visiting friends over the Christmas period the room was warm and cosy. Jane and Steve the hoteliers were charming and, made us very welcome, and the breakfast was very nice too.

This small hotel is even more charming in the summer, where you can sit outside on the balcony with the heaters on , looking out on the large gardens. Also has a good choice of locally brewed beers ... mmmm especially good with Walkers crisps.

A last minuted unplanned flying visit to Wales last weekend, on a dog rescue mercy mission... and suddenly we had a need to find somewhere to stay that would accept our three greyhounds.

I rang Ty Mawr, who did not give me the usual waffle about keeping them off furniture, leaving them in the room etc (any decent owner would do this in any case) but assured me that their own dogs would welcome them.

Having dashed in one go from Durham to Llanbedr we were welcomed warmly, and had been thoughtfully given a family room so the dogs had more space.

The room was en-suite, clean and warm and the beds and bedding very comfortable. Amazingly hot water (though a shower curtain would have been useful), and a long soak in the bath was just the job.

We adjourned, hounds in tow, to the stone floored bar with huge log fire. Very good bar meal - fresh and well presented (there's a restaurant if you aren't encumbered by a pack of dogs). Good selection of beers, if that's your thing, and the hosts were friendly and chatty; as were the locals in the bar. Great atmosphere.

We had a walk out of the village to star-gaze (so much better without all the light pollution!) and tired but happy, slept like logs. Breakfast was equally good -fresh coffee, fruit juice, toast, cereals, and full cooked breakfast.

Largely because the Ty Mawr Hotel was so welcoming and relaxing, the whole thing felt like a mini holiday rather than a 700 mile dash in 24 hours.

Would happily stay again for longer - well recommended.

From the moment you arrive, you feel relaxed and rested, the Ty Mawr is located in the beautiful village of Llanbedr - an excellent base for exploring the region, from Harlech castle to it's fabulous beaches & from Snowdon to Portmerion - there is plenty to do!

Jane & Steve, the Inkeepers are great hosts - the bar is warm and welcoming providing excellent food and the best kept beer in the area. Breakfast was always delicious & the room spotless.

If considering a break in north Wales - The Ty Mawr should be your only choice!

me and the wife visit this hotel about 3 times a year, we love walking so this is in an ideal location, we first visited it in 1995, as I've said on another review, it might only have 2AA stars, but I would give it 5 for its friendly staff and its great location - it is run by a brother and sister team - Jane looks after the hotel and Steve looks after the bar, and if you're like me and enjoy good food and a decent pint at a sensible price then this is the place to go

Jane welcomes you with a huge smile. Her cooking is second to none and she is anticipates all your needs.
Very handy for Snowdon and all the surrounding areas.
We stayed in the house as B&B guests, but Jane has 2 self catering cottages as well. Thoroughly recommend the b&b as her HUGE breakfasts set you up for the week, let alone the day! Our room was above average in size.
