Brodawel House house is situated a few minutes walk from a long sandy beach and 30 minutes from Aberdovey village with its pubs, eating places and shops. The house is beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished and with every possible need met. We were a party of 10 and were generously provided for in the 7 lovely bedrooms all with en suites.
It is true that the rubbish disposal instructions are complicated but this is not the fault of the owners who are at the mercy of the strict rules of the rubbish collectors.
We found Mr and Mrs Zitron to be helpful and forgiving as they refunded our deposit in full despite some breakages.
We recommend the Talyllyn Railway, and also the rail journey from Aberdovey to Harlech which is stunning
This is a difficult review, especially as it is our second time staying here. We really enjoyed our most recent stay at Brodawel House once again. It is well laid out and has the vast majority of facilities you would expect (some are a little dated) for a large self catering house. Great location and suits a large group well. We go away every year as a big group towards the end of November.
To plagiarise another reviewers comment, we were truly gobsmacked my the email we received from the owner once we arrived home. It was aggressive in tone and full of what can only be described as either fabrications of the truth or nit picking in the extreme as to the condition we left the house in. A large part of our housekeeping deposit has now been withheld for (and I quote) "One dishwasher was full and still running", "some worktops had not been cleaned", "food waste left in one bin"...... We as a group thoroughly cleaned the premises before we left, and in some cases we left it cleaner than when we found it. There was however one mark on one chair that was highlighted that I was happy to pay extra cleaning towards but this was not sufficient and we were charged the vast majority of our £200 without any recourse.
It has truly put us off and I would urge any future victors to this premises not to expect their housekeeping deposit back and to receive a condescending highly inappropriate email afterwards.
If you don't like having people actually use your house and its facilities then don't rent it out!! Its called the hospitality industry for a reason.
Beautiful location, short walk to the sand dunes and deserted beach.
15 minute walk from Aberdyfi which has shops and pubs, perfect walking distance for a meal in the evening.
Large dining room, comfortable sitting room and a second sitting room but we couldn't get the games console to work in there, nice for a quiet sit down though.
Excellent ground floor flat for elderly or disabled.
Bedrooms luxurious, all with views of mountains or sea, lovely ensuites to every room so lots of privacy.
Family with baby slept on top floor so not disturbed by noise when baby asleep.
Kitchen so well equipped that you could have cooked a banquet! Only minus point was that as the cupboards were full of all the equipment there wasn't any where to put the food away.
Garden lovely and sheltered with lots of seating. Our grand daughter loved the miniature patio set.
We all felt really comfortable here and had an amazing week in a very special part of Wales.
Wonderful week in this beautiful spacious welcoming house. Great gardens front and back - enclosed which was great for the children to explore safely. Well equipped throughout and lovely bedrooms.
To top it all superb granny annex for the olds! We look forward to staying at Brodawel again.
What a fantastic place!
We had a wonderful week at Brodawel House, a very clean & homely venue five minutes from Aberdovey station. The location is excellent with the dunes, golf course and sea just minutes away; and if the weather does not co-operate, then the house is a very comfy place to relax in (-we had a lovely warm afternoon playing Scrabble in the lounge as the rain came down!)
The rooms were very clean and spacious, decorated to a high standard and we were impressed by the superb welcome pack. Our party of six had a great time; in hindsight we could have easily taken advantage of the home's size and invited another one or two couples more along, which would have helped out with the cooking!
Brodawel House is lovely, the owners were engaging and very accommodating, and the overall impression is that of a very professionally-run holiday home.
Thanks for a very pleasant stay, we're looking forward to booking again soon!

Magnificent house and location, perfect weather for our stay in this relaxing part of Wales however the house had not been thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival including dirty toilets, bathroom and windows. The BBQ collapsed during use resulting in a very dangerous safety hazard. The recycling requirements are a headache. No mobile signal from the house. I wonder how many people get their housekeeping bond returned to them?
