Positive Reviews

Top town centre location near the beach

Beachgoers were in their element with Barmouth's award-winning sandy beaches at the mouth of the River Mawddach just a short stroll away. Another convenience was that there were town centre shops, amenities and dining options within easy walking distance as well as bus stops and the railway station. The surrounding Snowdonia National Park was a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors with its unspoilt landscape of mountains, lakes and valleys. Drivers loved the free off-street parking and proximity of petrol stations. The direct access to the A496 enabled straightforward access to Gwynedd beauty spots, visitor attractions, castles and golf courses.

Praise for rooms and facilities

Reviewers were impressed by the lovely Cardigan Bay views from selected rooms. There was praise for the spacious and well-cleaned rooms at this sympathetically-adapted Victorian house. Guests approved of the modern bathrooms featuring contemporary details like heated towel rails. There was also praise for shared facilities like the drying room and pretty gardens that made a pleasant retreat from the hubbub of the town centre.

Friendly hosts and lovely breakfasts

Visitors frequently said this well-run property benefited from friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable hosts who provided lovely cooked breakfasts that were plentiful and freshly-prepared.

Negative Reviews

Nuisance noises reported

Street noise was occasionally audible in some of the rooms, according to several light sleepers whose rest was sometimes disturbed.

Breakfast timing grumbles

Some critics with early starts, or those wishing to have a lie-in, said they wished the breakfast serving time could have been a little more flexible.

Occasional Wi-Fi issues

Travellers appreciated the free Wi-Fi access but it was sometimes claimed that the log-in process was over-complicated or that the speeds on offer were a little sluggish in certain parts of the property.
