We stayed here whilst walking the Welsh coast path and were greeted by Peter who informed us of all the Covid changes they had made. We were very impressed with the measures taken! Lovely to get some home made scones in our room too! The room was very spacious and comfortable and we had a lovely view from our window of the castle. Breakfast was excellent - one of the best on our 6 night break along the path!

This was our first visit to pen y garth, yet we had heard so much about it. I booked myself and husband in for 7 nights but about 2 weeks before our fisit i had to change it to 4 nights due to husband having hospital appoinment. Cheryl replied back straight away. Infact we had been upgraded to the Castle room. We were greeted by Peter who told us about the covid restrictions. As we arrived in our room we noticed ho2 clean and comfortable it looked. The view was amazing. A tin with cakes was in the room in fact we had either cakes or flap jacks or scones. Breakfast was served in dining room excellent service. Both Cheryl and Peter went above and beyond. In fact the whole visit was great.

Pen Y Garth does not disappoint. A careful eye for detail runs throughout from the home baked cake in your room on arrived to the best breakfast we've ever had. Fresh home baked bread, home made jams and meat from the owners brothers farm makes this special. A really warm welcome and the views from the bedroom window is the icing on the cake. Will definitely be back.

We where here from the 26th of August till the 30th. A midweek break. I was amazed how lovely it was here. The best bed and breakfast I have been too. The room was beautiful and cosy and beautiful views. Looking over towards Harlech castle and snowdonia mountains and the sea. I just couldn't stop looking at the views. Just beautiful. I think you both work very hard to make everyone comfortable here. You are friendly, caring and helpful in every way. You always make sure the breakfast was perfect and it was. Homemade bread every morning. You always said good morning. Just lovely. The jigsaw was a hit with my husband, he had a go a few times. Every day you left cakes at the side of the tea facilitys. And they always went down a treat for all of us. The room we stayed in was just beautiful. The only thing was the bed we just thought it was a bit hard for us. But really we still slept. I just want to say thank you ever so much for making are stay a brilliant one. We really did enjoy are stay/ holiday. I didn't want to leave. Thank you very much.
