Visited with my husband at the end of December was a little bit concerned as a customer was returning their meal as we sat down, they were then dissatisfied with the replacement they were given. My husband had fish and chips which was lovely however I opted for the lamb with lentils and spinach. I was given a plate full...

I went for dinner and was really impressed. I was part of a large group (13) who booked in last minute for dinner. The Penhelig Arms created a special U shaped table in a room without other diners. This enabled us to all talk (which can't be done with the standard long table) and not disturb other diners. Our group...

We had been recommended the Penhelig Arms as a perfect Christmas destination. We checked TripAdvisor and ignored any negative reviews. Thankfully. I can't praise the Penhelig, staff, food and location. We had the BEST Christmas ever and have already booked for next year. Take my advice if you like laid back, cosy hotels with excellent food, amazingly helpful staff, fabulous...

We stayed between Christmas and New year and the hotel was very busy. The bar and restaurant were full both nights which says it all. Aberdovey seems to be an extremely dog friendly town - at least out of season anyway. Like other pubs in the town the Penhelig arms is more than happy for dogs to be in the...

The staff were very helpful and friendly. There was a dog bed, bowls and a dog towel in our room, which was a very generous size. The bar had a great atmosphere and the location is fab. Recommend watching the sun set from the terrace.

We stayed at Penhelig Arms for 3nights in early November on a Travelzoo promotion. It is in a magical location on the spectacular Dovey Estuary. We had delightful day trips north up the coast to Harlech and Portmierion and south, we walked the dunes by the Estuary, along the beach; visited the Wednesday "Mac' market and spent the afternoon in...

This unassuming property balanced on the edge of the estuary provides good quality accommodation at very reasonable prices. The room sizes are mixed so it is advisable to ask when you book, however our experience suggests they are of a good quality and appear to be recently re furbished. The hotel has a small bar and the reception/lounge can become...

We stayed at the Penhelig Arms from 23rd to 25th of November, it was our first visit but it most certainly won't be our last. When we booked the break we were a bit concerned about some of the negative reviews, particularly regarding the attitude of the staff. We had no need to have worried. On the contary the ALL...

Not sure where to begin ! fantastic location, decor lovely, room spacious and light.The room we stayed in needed attention and a good clean. The food was good. But the lack of a Manager and poor service left us feeling let down. What a gem this could be if it was run properly,
