My husband and I booked in over the 4 day Easter break for a mountain biking holiday.
We were greeted by Margaret and had a very warm welcome. Our room was lovely and the location ideal for quick and easy access to Coed-y-brenin. Breakfast was ready every morning at the time we requested, and although basic it was filling. Easter Sunday we were surprised with a card and chocolate eggs from the hosts.
A few things that would make me rethink another visit; the boiler was only turned on twice a day, in the morning and evening. As a mountain bikers, my husband and I wanted to shower when we got in from a day of riding, but on two occasions we had to take cold showers as the boiler didn't come on until evening and we got in late afternoon (3-4pm). Margaret did turn on the boiler but it took to long to heat (at least over 30mins) and we took cold showers to make the most of our day and not waist time. Another small point is that the towels don't dry.
Apart from the two points, albeit the warm water a very important one to us, we had a very enjoyable visit with great hosts.
