“A brilliant afternoon starting with a lovely roast lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

We have just had an amazing afternoon at the Tal y Don. We had a lovely Sunday lunch of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding then spent the remainder of the afternoon watching the England v Wales rugby match in the back room. We were made to feel extremely welcome, especially by Shirley, even though England were victorious on this occasion. This pub is so friendly and the atmosphere was very special. Thank you all.

In the heart of Barmouth, this is a great place to stay. our room had lovely decor and was warm with plenty of tea,coffee,etc.
very comfortable stay and although in a pub the room was very quiet.
The breakfast was very good...a lovely place to stay.

i was working nearby and stayed here, i received a single person discount so was off to a flyer, i arrived late and was greeted with a warm welcome and told that they could still accommodate me for tea i had one of the best meals ever, a simple veggie crumble with loads of garlic bread at less than a tenner it was superb and after a bad day it really hit the spot.i spent the rest of the evening in the bar, warm and welcoming with nice locals and excellent beer,i had room 4 that overlooked the street. nice and cozy with two single beds,trouser press,superb brewing facilities and large en suite with fantastic shower. the wifi was a bit slow to come on. i did hear a doggy type sound in the night and early doors but it didnt mither me that much, i didn't see any signs of muts so perhaps they have special rooms? veggie breakfast was great and plentiful,loved the spud cakes under the eggs but it was made all the better by the inclusion of a proper welsh male voice choir as background ground music. not usually my scene but made my day. (oh on cd and not unfortunately in person,)
good stuff,
great place, people,food and cleanliness
great prices, location and service
downside
lack of on site parking but this is an old hotel and the frontage would be spoilt by car parking, mind theres plenty of free parking minutes across the road,
recommendation,
is it possible to change the linda McCartney sausage for quorn ones? there more tasty and cost less,
last word
big thanks to all the staff, if i'm ever over that way again id defo go back , well done tal y don made my day
best wishes, john

Stayed at the Tal-Y-don for business on a weekday evening. Nice large room (1) with en-suite and the availbility of wi-fi an added bonus. Would recommend for a stay either business or leisure. Having a bar downstairs was and added bonus after a days work

I love to travel with my dog. I had the best night sleep ever. I slept like a baby. The breakfast was good and our dinner was wonderful. The only problem was that they haven't got at that time a fob system, they may improve this.Thank you guys.

Was due to stay for one night at hotel Just before leaving my cat came in injured,needed vetenary treatment so had to cancel. I phoned hotel to explain situation,spoke to a member of staff who said owners would phone me later that day. No one did so i assumed they understood reason for not turning up. Was horrified a few days later when checking my credit card balance,they had taken full payment for room! I understand its frustrating when people dont show up but this was a geniune emergency! So as well as vets bill, ive paid for a room i didnt use. I have alot of friends who go to Barmouth..have told them not to stay there ever!

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!
