We had the best room here and enjoyed our stay. It had a double bed and a single and there was plenty of room. Ensuite bathroom and aircon. The room opens on to the breakfast room and you have free range over the breakfast room and sitting room. The helpful owners live behind the property and are available if you...

I appreciate that most of the reviews about Yr Hen Ffordd are good, but my partner and I had a disappointing experience here. When we arrived at 3pm nobody was there to greet us. It didn't feel like we were expected. Luckily we had local SIM cards so we called the owner who spoke no English. From our limited knowledge...

Stayed here for 3 nights. In a way it was like staying in a museum, yet it gave the feeling of the heritage of the Welsh in Patagonia. I found this place a true treasure to the history of the area. It was fairly basic, but it just added to the nostalgia of our trip.

Really nice room and private bathroom, one of the nicest we've had in Argentina, and good value. It had excellent aircon, which is unusual for this price! Great breakfast with homemade scones. No fruit or juice but this is the norm here. Staff were friendly and helped with restaurant recommendations. Only problem was how long it took to get an...

This inn offers an excellent location a few blocks from the town square and close to the information centre and museums. Our host was pleasant, helped us set up a remis for and early Sunday trip to Trelew to catch a bus. Beds were comfortable and private bath and shower excellent. It was unseasonably hot while we were there and...

We paid a significantly lower price here than elsewhere on our trip through Chile and Argentina, which is nice. The hostería is located smack in the town center of Gaiman, a pleasant town with still obvious Welsh roots. We used it as a base to explore Chubut. Looking back, we'd better limited our stay in Gaiman, since there isn't much...

Small but stunning village in Patagonia will take your breath away; this hostel/B&B is perfect with gracious hosts and very comfortable and affordable, more than well kept, neat, shiny clean. Loved it in this town and at this hostel! Peace and quiet like you've never experienced it ...

Gaiman is not exactly a cultural mecca, but for what it was, the room was ok. The hosts were very nice and very easy going. The hotel is an ok place to stay if you are going to Punto Tombo to look at penguins.

Experiment the passionate lifestyle of Gaiman. “Yr Hen Ffordd”, the Welsh name for “The old Road”, is situated in a unique place only a few steps away from the main attractions of the town. It has renewed rooms with all the necessary services to make of your stay a pleasant experience.The road on which this hundred year old house is located is of great historical value because, apart from being one of the oldest roads in the town, it is only a block away from some of main tourist attractions, such as the main square, Gaiman’s first house and the First School of Patagonia.This old road surrounded by hills provides a unique setting for the history of the Welsh settlers in Patagonia. ... more   less
