“Wonderful place, our second time to stay there”
Reviewed 1 September 2010

A wonderful B&B, when our stay at a Castle B&B proved to be not up to our expectations we were lucky enough to find a room here. Great host and a beautiful place, highly recommended. We will return for another stay here.

Last minute few days away in North Wales, what a wonderful time we had. The weather was brilliant and accommodation and food were brilliant. Couldn't ask for a better base. Noted that the cutlery and crockery were really tastefull and the rooms were very clean and well maintained. Also loved the fresh flowers in the room and in the dining room. A very relaxing short break, owner made you feel at ease will definatley be back again very soon. Parking good at the rear of the property , shower was good and they also have a stocked bar of excellent whiskeys! Good places to eat nearby especially at the Lion. All in all a very enjoyable short break, hope that you enjoy this village as much as we did excellent :)

We arrived a bit late in the evening to a warm anf friendly welcome. We were shown the room without asking, no need to pay at that point and was allowed to settle in.

The drinks brought at the bar were added to our bill so no need to pay at that point, just chill and relax.

The night sleep was undisturbed and we slept well. The breakfast was superb, my partner said he had never seen such a well laid out breakfast.

Overall, we will return again soon.

Keep up the great work Andy

We arrived in Harleck with no reservation. We were wellcomed right away. Room was very clean and spacious, and a view on the sun setting and sea view (front facing). Off street parking, walking distance to the castle, greenspace and restraunts.

the owner Andrew obviously enjoys what he does, he prepares a wonderful and elegant breakfast, that was the best we had on our trip. Breakfast was serviced with fruit, cereal, juice, yogurt, and the full english with fresh herbs.

Also has common area with bar.

Woulnd recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone in Harlech and would stay there again.

this is the third time we've stayed at Byrdir House, and we'll definitely come again. It is the perfect combination of a friendly, happy host, excellent, quality breakfast, comfortable bed with good linen and pillows, ample space in the rooms, a clean bathroom and a brilliant location. Highly recommended.

We arrived mid afternoon after phoning the day before. As soon as we walked in we could tell this was going to be a nice place. Everywhere was so warm and inviting and most importantly clean.
Andy our host welcomed us warmly and showed us to a very nice well-decorated room on the first floor. Lots of space and a proper En-suite, not a cupboard with a loo.

Andy explained where to eat and what was going on in Harlech and the surrounding places. We came back after dinner and had a drink in the little bar, very cosy, then off to bed for a good nights sleep. It was so quiet during the night.

Then in the morning Breakfast, firstly the tables looked good, proper linen, none of those little packets of sugar. There was water, fresh rolls and lots of choice. The cooked breakfast was a joy. Hot food, hot plates, excellently presented and it tasted superb.

To be honest we can’t fault the place.

Considering what you get for your money, amazing value to

Simple but comfortable and the breakfast is definitely a notch above the average. The friendly welcome makes this B&B a very good choice.
