We used Plas Mawr for a base to see the lovely reserves, beaches in the area - and of course - the ospreys! Comfortable, very clean, warm and good breakfast. Good luck Tina and Dave - you know how to run a great B+B!

An outstanding B&B. Very clean rooms with excellent breakfast. It is situated in a quiet but convenient location, ideal for a visit to Ynyshir and also for Osprey viewing. Good for Aberystwyth. Highly recommended. We made a return visit!

A friendly welcome, immaculate premises, comfortable bedroom and great breakfast await you at Plas Mawr B&B. The location enabled us to visit many local places of interest including Aberdovey and the Tally Lyn Railway at Towyn. Well worth a visit.

This was our third visit and again which says it all. A warm welcome by Tina and Dave, comfortable room and tasty breakfast. This is a great base to explore the surrounding area and a must if you're a nature lover- it's next to the RSPB Yns Hir reserve and a couple of minutes drive to the Dyfi Osprey Centre

A very nice room, and good breakfast, with kind words of welcome from the hosts. Stayed for two nights. And will come again when next in the area. A bird sanctuary and the Osprey project make for nice walks as well.

My wife and I booked Plas Mawr at the last minute even though it was 20 miles from where we were intending to stay. I must say It was well worth the extra petrol. The property has retained many of its original features and has excellent facilities. Breakfast could not be improved, we had a really enjoyable overnight stay. We...
