We stayed at Bryn Elltyd for 3 nights. It was a fantastic experience overall. Celia and John were outstanding hosts, catering without complaint to (annoying) dietary requirements, and giving us plenty of excellent tips on places to visit. Whilst we weren't particularly seeking eco-friendly accommodation, if you are passionate about the environment, this is definitely THE place for you. The...

John and Celia were absolutely fantastic hosts! From arrival to departure they made us feel extremely welcome and were fantastically accommodating. Their knowledge of the surrounding areas and activities were second to none and we really appreciated their advice. Would highly recommend this venue to anyone else, its central location to a multitude of attractions and the chilled out homely...

This place doesn't need another glowing review but I'm going to give it one anyway :) We had a great two night stay at Bryn Elltyd - myself and my husband with our toddler in the triple room, and my parents in one of the outside rooms. While not high spec and glossy (as you might expect in an eco...

John and Ceilia are great hosts and in beautiful location. Close to scenic Ffestiniog railway that goes to Porthmadog and back. Comfortable bedrooms. Brought granddaughters with and they were welcomed and had a great time exploring the local walks and surroundings.

Just returned from a beautiful stay at the Bryn Elltyd eco Guest House. I don’t really review much, but I needed to add a review how lovely it was to stay here over the Easter Bank Holiday Weekend! John and Celia are perfect hosts, they welcomed us with a cup of tea and cake. It had taken longer than we...

I really enjoyed my recent stay at Bryn Elltyd eco guest house and although it was only a short stay I got to experience the lovely views and the lovely hospitality of John and Ceilia.

Enjoyed a great 3 night stay nested in the home of hydroelectric Snowdonia. Boasting tremendous views, excellent food and a warm welcome from Cecilia and John. Great base for exploring the hills and local area, with a surprising range of activities within easy reach. Great find of an award winning green B+B..

We stayed in November for two nights (with our dog) in the Hobbit room. Although the weather was wild and stormy, we received a warm welcome from Ceilia and John. They always had time for a chat and shared their knowledge of the local area. The location is very picturesque, and the room was cosy. Despite the raging storm we...

My wife and I had an extremely enjoyable stay at Bryn Elltyd on an all too brief visit to Snowdonia, primarily to spend a day adventuring at the Zip World site at Blaenau Ffestinniog. John and Celia were great hosts who made us very welcome; lighting a log burner and providing tea and fruit cake when we first arrived. They...

Really enjoyable visit and ideally located for visiting Bounce Below or Zip World. Only 20 minutes from Port Meireon and Porthmadog. Beautiful location. Excellent hosts who were friendly and informative without being in your face all the time. Accommodation was clean . Breakfast was excellent quality - will definitely be visiting again.
