We spent two nights at this hotel and really enjoyed it. The location is particularly pleasing with a great view out to the sea. The staff were charming and made the experience all the more enjoyable. The room we stayed in is in need of updating but the bed was comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice and...

Stayed two nights at this hotel. The location is great with lovely views from rooms.Staff are great and nothing is too much trouble. Little disappointed with the food in the restaurant but breakfast was lovely (chef can certainly poach eggs !!!!!) the hotel is a little tired in places but would stay again.

We recently stayed here and had an absolutely lovely time. I suffer from chronic asthma together with several allergies which have proved to be a problem when staying in hotels in the past. However Ael y Bryn proved to be very much the exception and Kimberley and Kevin were marvellous with their support, particularly with regard to non bio bed...

This was our second visit to this hotel and it met our expectations. Family run, with a lovely welcome and a 'homely' feel about it. Spotlessly clean with amazing food!

Great staff. Super food. Good location. Unfortunately the property requires a complete refurb to transform this tired and dated hotel. There are little things that would make a mile of difference - if shower gels are provided on day 1, then repeat daily. Check that there is 1 towel per room occupant and they do not have holes in.

We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our first anniversary together. Having arrived two hours earlier than we should have done we was instantly greeted with a warm welcome. We informed them that we was climbing Snowdon the next day meaning we would need to leave earlier than when breakfast was served but that was no problem. They arranged...

We have used the Ael - y - Bryn when we stay in Barmouth for a few years now. Seldom when dining out in this area do you find good quality food which is worth what you are charged for it. The exception being here. The Beef in particular is melt in the mouth, gravy is rich and tasty. You...

We came on a voucher for our 2 year wedding anniversary and everything was so lovely, you gave us the bridal suit and the room made the weekend even more special. The staff were lovely really helpful, the food was delicious and they were very dog friendly Recommend for a peaceful weekend away near the sea.

We were looking for lunch and came across Ael y Bryn on our way to Harlech, at first a little shabby but the chef cooked our lunch to perfection another secret we want to share if ever you find yourself looking for something different to fish and chips
