Positive Reviews

Tranquil national park location near beaches

Guests loved this property's peaceful location in a traditional stone cottage just off the A496 road between the market town of Dolgellau and the coast. The rural location best suited those with their own transport, but non-drivers welcomed the proximity of bus stops. Motorists welcomed the free parking. With stunning estuary views on the doorstep and sandy beaches at Barmouth a short drive away, travellers often felt the location was perfect for a Welsh getaway. Lovers of the great outdoors appreciated being within striking distance of Snowdonia National Park's stunning scenery and wide range of outdoor pursuits.

Praise for rooms and facilities

The clean, cosy and well-equipped rooms appealed to guests as did the comfortable beds. There was also praise for shared facilities like the handy drying room for wet outdoor kit and the inviting guest lounge complete with balcony and log burner.

Welcoming hosts and delicious food

Reviewers liked the friendly and helpful hosts as they fostered a relaxed atmosphere and had good local knowledge to share. The dog-friendly policy was a bonus for those travelling with their pets. Diners enjoyed the excellent freshly-prepared breakfast and evening meals, available by prior arrangement.

Negative Reviews

Some criticism of bathroom arrangements

Some reviewers said they would have preferred en suite bathroom facilities throughout the property as one of the guest rooms only had access to a private bathroom across the corridor.

Some rooms were a bit small

Although visitors generally found the rooms comfortable and homely, some critics remarked that certain rooms were rather small, especially when fully occupied.

Occasional noise grumbles

Although most visitors enjoyed the peace and quiet at this property's rural location, some light sleepers occasionally claimed they were disturbed by noise from adjacent rooms.
