Cannot fault anything here. Everything is first class from the comfy beds, hot showers and spacious rooms to the full Welsh breakfast. The hosts are great and will help with any information about the local area and amenities.

We stop here a few times a year when we visit family. We are always felt very welcome and have a nice and relaxing time. The rooms are really spacious and comfortable and the welsh breakfast is superb. I would recommend this place to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

The property itself is a short distance from Porthmadog on the way to Borth-Y-Gest so it is well located. The property though seems isolated & quiet.... More
