“Wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

My opinion is that Einion House is the best B&B I have ever experienced! Alvin and Dave are gracious hosts, the rooms and bath (shared family suite with a friend) were simply, yet elegantly decorated and scrupulously clean. The food was great, and very accommodating of our special dietary needs (vegetarian and coeliac). I can't say enough about the warm welcome, the great recommendations for dining and places to visit. If you plan to visit North Wales, you owe it to yourself to stay at Einion House! If I ever get the chance - I'll be back!

Room Tip: Family room was very suitable for friends traveling together - would work really well for family of...

Thank you very much for your very kind words and taking the time to put a review on Trip Advisor. We were really glad you managed to get to Port Merion and also see the surrounding area including Barmouth, as well as go for walks around Fairbourne. We were pleased to be able to help you enjoy Mid Wales and that you also managed to make the most of your journey back to Oxford and London. Thank you again very much.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review which we both appreciate. It was great to see you again, though not on your bike. We were glad the weather was much better for you both and that you managed to see more of the area including climbing Snowdon Mountain, and driving to Tal-y-Llyn and Barmouth. May be next time you could both cycle the Mawddach trail or the route from Fairbourne to Barmouth. Thank you again

Over the May Day bank holiday we returned to spend a relaxing weekend at Enion House. We had a warm welcome on arival and the house was as clean and comfy as ever. Alvin took time and care to ensure that we could manage our luggage and that we were comfortable. He was happy to advise us of places to visit during our stay. The room was spotless with a fabulous view and the breakfasts were delicious each morning. We look forward to our next visit.

It was good to see you again and we were glad you were able to do the things you had planned including managing to visit Yyns Hir RSPB reserve and the Kite Feeding station. We were pleased you also managed to get the relaxation you both needed. We were also glad to know that Café Indiana in Fairbourne was also open for you.

I have visited Fairbourne and the area a number of times and this was the most enjoyable stay I have had. It was a late booking but despite that I was called back to ask if there were dietary requirements and my needs were met. Everything about the accommodation was as good as it could be and the breakfast was a tasty and nourishing start to each day. The owners and my fellow guests were friendly and shared information about places to visit, making the whole experience relaxing and yet stimulating.

We booked this guest house based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and have to say every one of the five star reviews is fully justified.

It is run in the most professional manner and it is spotlessly clean.

Alvin is the perfect host and he makes you feel welcome the moment you step inside.

There is a real touch of class about the place and I would recommend it to anyone.

Lovely bed with feather quilt and pillows and a lovely grease free breakfast cooked to perfection.

Peace and tranquillity in abundance in beautiful surroundings. What more could you ask for ?

We will certainly be going back.

Thank you both.

Vic and Sally

We stayed at Einion house as we had a Christening to attend on Easter Sunday. We stayed for two nights. We found this b&b on the internet there were not many options in Friog/ Fairbourne but if there were Im unsure they could meet the standard of this one! Warm welcome, immaculate rooms and the breakfast was lovely each morning.Would definitely recommend it to anyone!! And we will be staying here on our next trip. Many thanks for making us feel welcome,
Ben and Laura.

One of the cleanest hotels/b&b's we've stayed in including some top. London hotels. Very comfortable beds, friendly welcome and excellent vegetarian and non-vegetarian breakfasts which were very filling.
Thank you for a very nice evening.
