We had a lovely room with great views and a sunny patio. Heulwen and Andy made us feel welcome and at ease. All very clean, great choices for breakfast. Location is very quiet which suited us well and not far from Dolgellau and good walks.

I and two other family friends stayed at this guest house for a week. The property was very nice, modern clean and warm. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and thoroughly nice people. They provided us with pack lunches for our daily walks and when we returned made every effort to get our clothes and equipment dried for the morning. They had good knowledge of the area and helped us to find interesting walks and places to eat and drink in the evenings. They provided a wide range of breakfast meals even accommodating my request for porridge, which was delicious. I enjoyed staying there and would definitely use them again. A wonderful experience and week in Snowdonia

We stayed there for two nights with another couple and had two en suite bedrooms. Breathtaking views, wonderful rooms, super breakfasts and smashing hosts. There are lots of great walks around Llanfachreth including the well known Precipice Walk and Moel Offrwm. Dolgellau isn't far away with plenty of places to eat and drink and there's a great local taxi service if you want to indulge.It was everything we wanted and more. Thank you Andy and Lwli.
