My partner and myself stayed here for one night and from the moment we walked in we were welcomed with a lovely smile from a young gentleman who checked us in. The rooms are beautiful! We stayed in room 1 which has a full poster bed and beautiful views of the Welsh countryside. The food is delightful here(deserts are a fantastic treat)
It was a shame to leave as we had such a lovely time there.
It was so nice to see a place so pristine and well looked after! Would recommend :)

We have had such a wonderful stay. The friendly staff make the atmosphere in the Brigands special. The food is splendid. In all the Brigands inn is fantastic! Room 8 is great. There is a really nice sitting lounge to relax in.

Having recently moved near to Dinas Mawddwy we went to The Brigands Inn with some friends for the evening. We had the most delicious meal ever! It was a lovely atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be returning frequently and will be recommending The Brigands Inn to guests at our self catering holiday accomodation.

My partner and I came for dinner and I didn't know what to expect. From the moment we walked in everything was close to perfect. A cosy and welcoming environment, the young gentlemen behind the bar was so polite and helpful and chirpy! We both had a three course meal and everything was divine! THANKYOU.

We stopped at The Brigands Inn on a cold and wet Thursday afternoon on our way to Barmouth for a much needed sandwich and coffee. As we had our two Springer Spaniels with us, we were fully prepared to sit outside or in the car, however, the lovely lady that greeted us, insisted that we brought the girls inside! All of the staff were very welcoming and we were even given an extra biscuit for the dogs! The inside is beautiful and spotless and the food is great too. I can't wait to go back and hopefully stay for longer next time.

We arrived on the evening hoping to pay for a room on the purpose of using the shower and facilities but we were informed that they were fully booked. But the lady at the hotel desk let us use the staff shower room for free of charge! How amazing and generous of her. We then stayed for some food and beers and left the girls some money behind the bar for a drink to say thank you. Will be visiting there again 100%! Thank you :-)

Dear Bigc1986,

First of all, may I think you very kindly to taking the time to write such a pleasant review about us at the Brigands Inn.

It was no trouble whatsoever in offering you the use of the shower, and I'm glad that it made a difference, I can imagine that camping in a forest does have it's downfalls.

I'm also glad that you enjoyed our food so much, that you will be coming back to see us.

Looking forward to seeing you once again, and kind regards to the other three gentlemen in your party, I hope that their stay here was as enjoyable, and that you had a good weekend in Wales with the rally.

Diolch yn fawr iawn,

Catrin

We stayed here for two nights during Wales Rally GB and I will be staying again!! The welcome was fantastic, as was the room. The bar and restaurant was excellent. As was the bar service we had off Bianca, Nikki and Gemma. Everywhere was clean and well kept. Highly recommended! See you again very soon!!
