Reviewed August 2, 2014

we arrived Sunday afternoon and were greeted with home made cake and freshly made coffee, which was wonderful. Our room was charming and beautifully decorated (4 poster bed).
Breakfast, made by Diane, was great - nothing was too much trouble, she had made up some muesli especially for me and I had vegetarian breakfast and my boyfriend had the full meat version which he polished off in no time!! the eggs were wonderful and from their own chickens.
Diane is a wonderful host - full of information and lots of suggestions for what to do in the area - it was a real treat!

Room Tip: 4 poster bed which is at the front of the house was fantastic

We had walked over 18 miles to Llanwddyn, along the Glyndwr's Way, so we were glad of the warm welcome with tea and freshly baked cakes. We had the back room, which didn't have the views of the front but had a close up view of a woodpecker attacking a post just outside the window. The room was clean, well furnished and had a TV with a Sky box. Diane & Ieuan cooked us a nice meal in the evening, to save us the long walk up the hill to the hotel.

We stayed at this delightful bed and breakfast while walking a four day trail in Wales. My wife and I were greeted by the charming host after a long day on the trail and immediately offered tea and cake, the perfect start to our stay. The room was excellent; immaculately clean, comfortable and with an eye for the little details. The breakfast in the morning was delicious and offered a good variety of food. This guest house is the perfect option if you want somewhere clean and comfortable that also has the personal touch of a bed and breakfast. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely choose to enjoy the hospitality here again.

This was our fifth visit to Gorffwysfa. We were visiting our friends in the area.

As always we received a friendly welcome from Diane and Ieuan. The accommodation is lovely. Fantastic scenery and a superb breakfast. Looking forward to our next visit!

Excellent location by the cafe and shop.Very cosy room with four poster bed. Greeted with lovely tea and cake on our arrival. Breakfast second to none and bed very comfortable. Little fridge outside room was useful for milk. We ate evening meals at the pub within the Lake Vyrnwy hotel. I highly recommend it.
There is no mobile phone connection here unless you are on orange network. There is a phone box right by the guest house though,

Ieuan and Diane we easy to book with, quick with where to go in the area, and lovely to chat and laugh with over a good tv show. Their B&B is extremely well located. The room and bathroom were functional with a bit of charm and the breakfast was well prepared and composed of local ingredients. Hikes start right outside their door and bike rentals are a five minute walk. Beautiful views of the forest and dam from the front door and they tend a very nice garden. Gem of a place!

Stayed here for 2 weeks while on business and pleasure. Couldn't have found a better B&B.
Set in beautiful scenery with plenty of trails for walking or cycling, The Sculpture Park and Lake Vrynwy all on the doorstep.
Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts Ieuan & Diane. The food was excellent, room comfortable with lovely views. There is a guest lounge where I was able to practice my clarinet (while other guests were out).We will definitely be back.
