Bryn Melyn Guest House
Ranked #3 of 24 Barmouth B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

As the title suggests, I stayed here and loved every minute! I cannot recommend enough this B&B, located on the hillside as you enter Barmouth, the perfect setting for a relaxing break with easy access to all Barmouth ans Snowdonia have to offer. The food here (Breakfast and evening Meal) were of great quality and variety. The rooms tidy, clean and welcoming, each with a panoramic view worth every penny and more. 'toms' beer (welsh) very nice too..!

Can't wait till my next stay. Have already sent relatives, who also loved it here. Clint And Lissa.

Thank you for your kind review. It's good to know you enjoyed your stay with us so much and I am especially pleased you enjoyed the bar. We have worked hard to develop a range a Welsh drinks to offer our guests as it seems only right if you visit Wales that you should be able to enjoy the unique produce of this land. We were particularly pleased to find the 'Tomas Watkins' Welsh lager - and it's been very popular...

Many thanks for recommending us to your relatives too. A recommendation is worth any number of good reviews and we really do appreciate it.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and that Bobbie enjoyed the sausages each morning! Three of our rooms on the first floor are designated as 'dog friendly' and we try to make dogs, or indeed any other pets, welcome in these rooms. Certainly many of our canine guests seem to appreciate our sausages in the morning!

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back again. I'll make sure we have extra sausages!

We stayed for just one night together with our dog in a twin room with the most fantastic views over the estuary. The guest house is lovely and clean and the breakfast was perfect (especially the extra sausages for our dog!). As reviewers have said it is just a 10 minute walk down into Barmouth, where we had a nice meal in The Last Inn, but the walk back up is a killer. The little terrace has a bird table which is covered in all sorts of birds and there are binoculars and bird books so you know what you are looking at. David and Heather are wonderful hosts. The Welsh beers and ciders that are sold in the bar are really tasty.

On the Sunday we did the Panorama Walk which I had downloaded off the internet and which started about a mile or so up the road from the guest house. Again this is a lovely walk with fantastic views, but lots of steep hills!

I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone who wants a really relaxing break. I could have just sat for hours watching the birds on the bird table and looking at the views which are breathtaking.

It's funny how many of our guests comment upon the bird-life we are fortunate enough to have outside Bryn Melyn. Certainly our location helps, surrounded as we are by woodland, but we have to confess to spending quite a lot of money each month on bird food to keep our feathered friends happy and keep them coming! We have counted over 20 different species at the feeding station so we are really blessed.
We are glad you enjoyed them as much as we do, and even more pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully you will be able to return and stay for a little longer at same point. We look forward to seeing you again.

We were looking for nice place to get away to for a weekend and Bryn Melyn was the best choice we could have made. Run by lovely people David and Heather who share their love for the area with their guests giving priceless advice on which way to go and what places are the best to be seen. We also have been advised which tour to take on our way back home so we could still admire beautiful landscape- this was great trip so thank you very much David for the map ;))
House itself is located in a beautiful spot- views are just breath taking and we didn't mind the 5 mins walk up the hill ;) breakfasts were beautiful- cooked from local ingredients and just perfect :) rooms are made to highest standards- very clean and smell nice ;))
I would highly recommend Bryn Melyn and we will surely come back there in summer:) Thank you very much for making our weekend so nice and special :))

Thank you for your generous words - it was lovely to be able to help you 'unpack' this part of Wales and to make sure you got the most out of your short stay. Hopefully you will be able to come back in warmer weather and make the most of the longer days to explore further - there's so much to see!

We received a warm welcome in more than one way, both from David and Heather and into a lovely warm building on a very cold night. The rooms are nicely decorated and really comfortable with spacious en suites. Hosts were friendly and had a good knowledge of the area's amenities. If you are into baths there is a wide range of Radox bubble baths in the bathroom. Breakfast was a good variety of the usual breakfast foods with freshly cooked hot foods and local produce. Bird spotting information and binoculars are also provided for anyone wishing to watch the local birdlife on the terrace at breakfast, there's a wide variety! The views from our rooms were great, overlooking the estuary. There is also a good amount of parking available once you negociate the steep, narrow lane but it is certainly worth it. We would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Going up the hill you need to either go past the drive way and turn round further up and come back d...

This outstanding B&B was a phenomenal way to celebrate my 27th birthday with my family. With our usual accommodation (the caravan) full to capacity, this B&B was perfect for the overspill! My cousin and myself shared a twin room, and my parents had a double. Barmouth is a special place to us all, and Bryn Melyn accentuated this.

I couldn't write this review, without mentioning the outstanding view towards the harbour/estuary. A truly wonderful way to wake up, with a plethora of birds and a squirrel also outside the window. The large room (#6) itself was perfectly clean and stylishly and simplistically decorated. Personal taste - it was my first experience of a memory foam mattress, and I wasn't altogether convinced, but other than my cousin's snoring I slept peacefully both nights!

David and Heather were exceptional, friendly, amusing and engaging hosts, always keen to make sure everything was to our liking. We were able to purchase some great Welsh ales for imbibing on the Saturday evening. The quality of the full Welsh in the morning was great, with accompanying self-service toast, spreads, yoghurts, etc. Ample, but not overwhelming, choice!

The location of Bryn Melyn allowed perfectly for a splendid short panoramic walk. And it took no more than 10-15 minutes for a simply walk through woodland down into Barmouth itself - which is then ideal for a walk across the bridge. We had an absolutely brilliant weekend at a super B&B - I would also thoroughly recommend Bistro Bermo where we ate on the Saturday night.

I would definitely stay at Bryn Melyn in the future, and would without hesitation encourage everyone to stay there for a thoroughly indulgent and relaxing trip!

It's always a pleasure to share in the celebration of special occasions, (and hey - you're only 27 once so that's pretty unique!), so it was great to have you and your family here over your birthday weekend. Thank you for all your kind words - we are just pleased we were able to make your stay so memorable and look forward to the next opportunity to welcome you to Bryn Melyn.
