Lovely friendly hotel. Serving fantastic food and a huge array of drinks. Whether you are a resident or not you are given a lovely warm welcome. Lunch on the terrace or afternoon tea all delightful. Suppers served as well.

We returned to Porth Tocyn after a break of 34 Years. We should have gone back earlier! Nothing had changed very much. Even Nick F-B, then running the hotel with his mother, now the proprietor (with wife Louise), seemed to have aged only slightly, and still retains his mischievous sense of humour. It must be the welsh sea air! The hotel is well appointed with super sea views, and is extremely comfortable in a slightly old fashioned (but not 'dusty') sort of way, yet it has broadband almost everywhere, and it is free! ( the broadband that is!!) We stayed a week and although the weather was...well Welsh, very changeable, we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet, so we slept well. As it was all those years ago, the food was truly excellent. And the staff without exception, were helpful, friendly and attentive. We felt it was excellent value for money, and even the wine was reasonably priced! Even were anno domini to allow us to do so, we won't leave it so long before we next return.

Room Tip: Go for an upper room with a sea view, the view of Snowdonia across the bay is stunning.

Stayed for one night at the Porth Tocyn, with my wife. Not the first time - stayed there about a year ago, and was not disappointed then. Accomodation excellent - very clean room, and very comfortable bed. Good bath/shower, with big and very fluffy towels - brilliant. Didn't take dinner there, as we were invited out by friends, but took breakfast, which was delicious. Not cheap - but in our opinion, value for money. Friendly service throughout, which appeared genuine.

Room Tip: If you are at all physically limited, the upstairs rooms can be difficult to reach, especially with...

We stopped here for 2 nights over the May bank holiday,
The hotel is a 10 minute walk from the main Abersoch beach but in a very quiet area there is nothing else there.
.As for the hotel, the room we had was very nice with a lovely sea view.We didn't eat in the restaurant at night as they have a no children policy.
Breakfast was all local produce tasty but very small one sausage and one rasher of bacon!
On the whole would I stop there again? No

But for a couple looking for a quiet hotel in a great setting it's nice (if you have got lot's of money!!!)

A group of friends and I stayed at this hotel for a walking holiday. I travel regularly and it was really refreshing to stay at a local, top-quality hotel. The room I stayed in had a fantastic seaview, was well equipeed and very comfortable. Love the tea brought to your toom in the morning! Breakfast was delicious, amazing dinners and the staff were delightful. Nick, the owner, was always around monitoring quality and Justina and Siobhan were great at providing personalized service. Great location for gorgeous walks without having to get in the car. And the petit fours after dinner were amazing.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms are worth the extra cost - mine - room 23 was spacoius and quiet

It was my first visit this year and have no doubt it won't be my last. Stunning place. Wonderful guests to sit and have a drink with after dinner. All in all it really worked for me with all credit to Nick and family. Long conversations with other guests sat by the open fires really made me understand this wonderful place. I took my mum for 3 nights and we both loved it. I would go back alone if I was stuck for a break.
