This hotel was an absolute find. Jo was warm, welcoming and didn't mind the 4am wake up call to let us in. As an added bonus they didn't give us a check out time, which was much needed after a day of partying at Festival number 6. The rooms were lovely and clean and the bar well stocked. I can reccommend this to anyone in the area.

On visiting the area to play golf at Royal St David's for 2 days, we were recommended to stay at Y Branwen by the Hon. Sec. Well played, thats what I say. The location was perfect only yards from the course and the welcome we received was second to none. Throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble, rooms were excellent and well equiped and the modern bar and restaurant were pleasing, homely and comfortable.
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to future trippers.

Room Tip: Book Early

We stayed here for one night in order to play golf at Royal St David's Golf club. The hotel was a great find. The room was spotless and very well equipped. The breakfast and evening meal were great. Fresh food and very well presented. The staff were very friendly. If we decide to play golf at Royal St David's again, we would not hesitate to book Y Branwen.

Room Tip: The front rooms have views over the golf course, but you could suffer road noise.

Went to the hotel because it said there was wifi and needed to keep in touch with family. There are hotspots but there is not free wifi everywhere.
If it is advertised it should be available especially when you are paying for it.
Shame as staff were friendly, room was good, breakfast was fresh but the web details oversell the hotel. It is by the main road next to the golf course and underneath the castle.

Room Tip: You are by a main road so get a rom at the back

A group of us went for a meal here on a busy saturday night. The food was all well cooked and presented to a very high standard. Service was a little slow but the place was packed. Prices good for the standard of food. Will definitely go again.

I have dined at some terrible places, but Y Branwen Hotel, Harlech, beats all!
The food is fair, the service poor, and the portions were pathetic.

Room Tip: If you want a place to eat, avoid Y Branwen, please!

We booked to stay here and were stunned at the level of cleanliness, facilities and outstanding customer service for a three star hotel. I have stayed in five star city hotels that weren't as clean or well ran as Y Branwen! Throughout our stay we were treated very well by the owners and all of their staff. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and well equiped. The bar had a lively atmosphere as it was full of locals and visitors. The restaurant service and food was brilliant and affordable. We are a family of mam and dad and 'young adults'.
