“A lovely B&B in a beautiful location”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

After reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor I booked in to Plas Efenechtyd for two days and was not disappointed. The house is set in a beautiful and peaceful location and perfect for a restful couple of days. My room was very nice, spacious and clean, with everything you'd expect (including free Wifi), comfy beds and a lovely bathroom. Dave and Marilyn, as many others have mentioned, are perfect hosts and I can attest to the quality of Dave's homemade jams and marmalades. It's especially nice to have warm, freshly-baked bread with breakfast too, little touches that make a lot of difference. All in all, I wouldn't have any hesitation in booking again and would heartily recommend Plas Efenechtyd if you're thinking of visiting the area.

I found this wonderful little place on a site other than TA and then checked it out here. I was struck by the passionate responses from clients! One rarely finds that these days and I contacted Dave and Marilyn right away and was thrilled that they could accommodate us on the dates we needed. Although our room was a wee bit small, the amenities (including ironed sheets...that alone blew me away!) more than made up for it. As reviewers have mentioned, Dave and Marilyn's outstanding hosting skills (and out of this world breakfast, especially the coffee, homemade bread and jams) make this a special place. Added to this is the adventure one experiences reaching this place on a narrow and twisting road. One piece of advice...definitely download or print their directions and follow them...you will find it! Marilyn's chickens formed our welcoming committee and Molly The Cat came by to check us out. Don't miss this!

I have just returned from my 3rd stay at this wonderful B & B and cannot recommend it highly enough. The setting is idyllic, tucked away in the Welsh hills with only the sounds of the birds in the garden within earshot. The rooms are spotlessly clean, decorated to a high standard and feel light and airy. Marilyn and Dave are the perfect hosts, warm and friendly and always on hand to offer advice on places to visit and directions to local beauty spots.Breakfast is a treat, homemade bread and jams, cereals and fresh fruit and with a full English breakfast on offer too. So nice to know the eggs are as fresh as can be often having been laid that day by one of the 6 chickens that Marilyn and Dave keep. I can't wait to go back!

Just returned from 2 delightful days at Plas Efenechtyd. Room and breakfast was superb. Garden was wonderful to relax in after a busy day out and about. David and Marilyn were excellent hosts and happy to spend time talking with us and sharing lots of stories. The location was perfect with beautiful views on all sides. We would recommend this B and B without any hesitation.

We recently spent a few days at this most friendly ,relaxing B and B .From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home .Plas Efenechtyd Cottage is a real gem ,tucked into the Welsh hillside.It fully deserves its 4 stars, with a plus! . We had been looking forward to the breakfasts and were not disappointed. Having woken up to the smell of home made bread, we could not have wished for a better start to the day. Marilyn and Dave have a really lovely cottage and are the perfect hosts . Everything was perfect.

This wonderfully peaceful haven was our home for 3 days. We arrived to a warm welcome and things just got better. Marilyn and David have done their homework and got it right! Top marks for the hospitality, friendliness, beautifully appointed rooms, delicious breakfasts, and attentiveness. We had a very enjoyable stay and will be returning soon. Many thanks.

Fabulous B&B set in a scenic paradise. The rooms were excellent, incredibly comfortable and service was second to none. Our hosts were incredibly friendly and the food was truly wonderful- the homemade jams in particular were outstanding. I would recommend it without hesitation and hope to return again in the near future.
