We recently stayed for a couple of nights over a weekend. A lovely location and homely rooms looking down to the castle and lounge area with fire. Always warm and cosy. Cheryl and Peter were very welcoming made us feel at home. Breakfast was tasty with lots of choice and fresh bread. Also extra cakes made for our return from...

Arrived at Pen Y Garth for a family funeral and we were met by Peter who showed us to a very spacious and warm room. It had a fabulous view of Harlech Castle and Snowdon which was a bonus. The bed was so comfortable that we found it hard to get up in the morning. The en suite was very...

It was lovely to meet you all and we are glad that you liked our B&B. We, like you, were shocked that the pub had closed down on the day you arrived but we hope that it will open again soon with new tenants.

We really enjoyed meeting you and your dog. Next time a puppy as well? It was fortunate that we had our only dog friendly room available for you that night. We think that room works well for dog owners as it has its own entrance so we can keep the rest of the house dog free.

The best B and B we have ever stayed in ! Excellent views, hospitality and breakfast. If I could give six stars out of five then I would. So quiet and peaceful, the only problem was the lack of eating places in Harlech.

We do not mind six stars! The pub is now doing food again which helps on the days that the other eating places are closed. We never tire of the views of the mountains and beach from our house which change constantly with the weather and the seasons.

Having cycled through a storm, we arrived soaked and bedraggled, but received a very warm welcome. Our bikes were stored safely (valet parking!) and our waterproofs taken to a drying room. We were then shown to a beautiful, spacious room with a wonderful view across Harlech Castle, to the sands and mountains beyond. The bedroom had a supply of Fairtrade...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly and welcoming(but not overbearingly so) -even giving us a lift from the railway station and providing little touches such as homemade Welsh cakes. Beautiful views in a very comfortable room. And an excellent breakfast including homemade bread. One of the nicest B and Bs we have stayed in for quite some time.
