We went for a meal here, my partner ordered the steak. It was very poor quality, very chewy and gristley it was also supposed to be medium but came out rare. We complained but no offer of a price reduction or anything such as a free drink or dessert. It was that bad she left most of it. I had the lasagna which was ok to be fair as lasagne goes but overpriced for what you get. I don't mind paying for quality but this certainly was not quality!

Hi,
Both my Wife and I did lunch here and it was very nice. Its in a great spot. The food was very good value and was served quickly. The ales served are very very good and well priced unlike some premises I have visited. The atmosphere was warm and the you are made tto feel welcome.
Nothing more to say other than I would eat here again.

My wife had booked this hotel as a break as I had been working away for a couple of weeks and neither of us had ever been to Barmouth before. We arrived along the estuary road and what a beutiful way to arrive. It was mid week with very little traffic, stunning sunshine and warm. The hotel was easy to find on the High Street and was full of people wishing to relax in the sun on the front with a pint of the excellent range of real ales and beers they sell. The service booking in was very good and professional and the room was excellent, far better than any Travel Inn or similar could over. The breakfast the following morning was excellent too.
The only downside to the hotel on our visit was that a previous visitor had stolen the room fan and the heat overnight did make things uncomfortable.
The other downside was the lack of onsite parking, although there are an abundance of nearby Pay & Display facilities and come 18.00hrs you can park along the High St almost next to the Hotel for free and with no restrictions overnight.
Will definatly go again.

We booked our bed and breakfast on the lunchtime and set straight off to Barmouth. We hadn't realised the accommodation was above a pub when we booked and checking in amongst the bar crowd dampened our spirits. The staff were friendly and showed us through the "private" door to our twin room upstairs. The room was large and overlooked the street. It had an en suite, was nicely decorated and had good facilities. There was also a beer garden out back. The breakfast was excellent with a good choice for everyone including non meat eaters.The location turned out to be excellent for all amenities, beach, restaurants, railway and shops. Barmouth was a hidden holiday gem with lots to offer families and walkers and for sure we will be going back. Tal y Don also appears to cater for dogs in some rooms. I do not have an issue with this but to be really picky I was not overly happy to see the dog in the breakfast room being petted and watching the owner picking up their food with the same hand?? Overall the bar customers we very friendly and all went quiet after 23:00. I definitely recommend Tal y Don, it has a lot going for it and at a reasonable price too.

Room Tip: Do not have room 4 unless you like a twin room with beds on opposite sides of the room.

Very central, really well equipped rooms, great breakfast and really friendly staff. This is over a pub but because Barmouth is a family place there was no noise after 11 pm and we were right over the bar!

Old style pub right in the centre of Barmouth. Real ale pub and malt whisky selection. Room was fine and so was the breakfast. Good value for money. Only downside is there is no car parking but we just parked for free 100 yards up the road or you can pay and display across the road.
