We had a wonderful couple of nights here! Not only were we made comfortable during our stay, with incredible breakfasts and great hospitality, but when we found out our train had been cancelled, our hosts Mike and Linda ensured we had all the information we needed to find our way home. They printed off all the information of bus and train times for us, and allowed us to stay in the guest house even though we had already checked out, until our delayed bus arrived 3 hours later.
We would highly recommend this guesthouse, located perfectly for those arriving by train or car.
Thank you to Linda and Mike for making our stay so enjoyable!

We had a fabulous couple of nights staying here, the location is perfect on the edge of Aberdovey with pubs, restaurants and the beach all within a few minutes walk. Our room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and breakfast was excellent. The friendly hosts make you feel very welcome and always happy to help. We would definitely recommend Cartref if you are planning to visit Aberdovey.

I can only mirror the excellent comments already posted, we stayed at "Cartref" in September for 4 nights. Linda & Mike were delightful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Room, breakfast and location are superb. If you are planning to visit Aberdovey this is the place to stay.

It's business as usual for the new owners Linda and Mike who took over this year and have continued the high standards of the previous owners Jules and William.
Comfortable uncluttered rooms,superb breakfasts and a very warm welcome.
All good.

We stayed for 2 nights. The room was extremely comfortable and very clean with a superb bed. Bathroom had brilliant shower with stacks of hot water. The hosts Mike and Linda were wonderful and couldn't do enough for you. We were met by Linda who made us very welcome with a great pot of tea which was also a brilliant cuppa. We will most definitely be back.

Room Tip: We were in room 4 which was lovely and quiet

Recently spent 2 nights at Cartref with sister and brother-in-law. Great to find my single room wasn't a broom cupboard under the stairs and was as well-equipped as their double room. My room was clean, comfortable and blissfully un-adorned with pointless ornaments!
Delicious, fresh breakfast with plenty of choice. Super! I'll be back!

Recently stayed when visiting family in Tywyn and en-route to business appointments in Cardiff. Easy to get to, first impression - a bit cool & lacking in atmosphere - only being honest! However the room was clean, modern, very comfy bed, nice quality bed linnen and pure white towels. Walk in shower with plenty of pressure and hot water. Breakfast was of a very high standard, real coffee, quality eggs, bacon and sausage. Minor criticism: timings for breakfast not early enough, appreciate that most holiday makers want to sleep-in, but I had a three hour journey ahead of me and would have preferred an option to have breakfast at 7am. Many thanks anyway best wishes Alison & Uwe
