“Fantastic Accommodation”
Reviewed 31 August 2012

Superb B&B in Harlech. Bridget & Derek made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. Our Room was on the first floor and overlooked the bay and also had views of Harlech Castle. Superbly large very comfortable double bed with on-suite and flat screen TV, plenty of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and bottled water with biscuits replenished daily, complete with two comfortable chairs if you just wanted to sit and read and look at the stunning views across the bay to the mountains in the distance. Derek & Bridgett's knowledge of the local area and beyond was brilliant and it well worth picking derek's brain over breakfast if you need some information on where to go and what to do especially if you're into walking the 'hills' in the area or perhaps a trek up Snowdon, which is about an hours drive away. Breakfast was superb! With Fresh Juice, fruit and cereals followed by the full monty of a welsh breakfast, I didn't want to eat for the rest of the day! Or you can have fresh cooked eggs anyway you want them, copious amounts of tea and coffee always available. Superb value for money. Highly recommended and we will definately be going back again and again.

Room Tip: Best two rooms are the largest ones at the front of this lovely B&B. great views across the bay...

We paid our second visit to Maelgwyn and were not disappointed! A warm welcome, fantastic view of the bay from the comfortable and beautifully decorated room. Wonderful breakfast, will hopefully return for many years to come!

Room Tip: Always ask for a room at the front of the house

We stayed just one night, but the room, atmosphere, attractive art, friendly and generous nature of b&b is impressive. Not only set in the heart if Harlech, 5 minute walk to castle, it Overlooks a tremendous view if the peninsula. I'm looking forward to coming back.

We stayed here in 2011 and loved every minute of it! The room was large and comfortable with a brilliant view of the castle. Breakfast was delicious, well cooked and plentiful. Our hosts were friendly, helpful and we really enjoyed meeting them. They made us feel very welcome. We had a very relaxing stay. Highly recommended. We think this is THE place to stay in lovely Harlech. Steven and Mark

Room Tip: Room 2 was very spacious with a great view

We found Maelgwyn on line the bedrooms looked lovely with fantastic views. Derek met us at the door when we arrived which was really nice. The bedroom lived up to the the website pictures and video. It was warm and very comfortable. The full Welsh breakfast was wonderful and set us up for the day/ Derek and Bridget were so nice and nothing was to much trouble. We will be definitely be going back. Would recommend a stay there.

Room Tip: Recommend room 1 or 2

We received a lovely welcome.We stayed only one night but would have loved to stay longer. Immaculately clean, very comfortable bed and lots of nice extras included. The view was stunning, over the castle to Snowdon. Wow! Breakfast great and the owners friendly and interesting people.
Would definitely stay here again, and fully recommend to others.

Room Tip: Sea views are worth the extra money

We found Maelgwyn on-line, =it looked appealing and on speaking to the owners sounded like the perfect place to stay. On arrival our hosts were very welcoming and showed us to a sea-view room on the first floor; my what a fantastic view. The room was spacious but so hot. It was one of the few days of real sunshine and heat we have had in Wales this summer and the huge picture windows had a greenhouse effect on the room and it was like being in a sauna. We were lucky to have a fan heater but really it would have benefitted from having a few more windows that opened and access to fresh air.

The en-suite had all the necessary facilities but if you are a tad on the larger side you might struggle, and it would be better to have a towel rail that you could switch off, especially during the summer months.

Breakfast next morning was very nice.

Overall, I'd say that this is a very nice place to stay, hosts were friendly, it was very clean and comfortable (apart from the heat) but at the price not on a par with other 5 star b&bs we have stayed at that provide more of the little extras.
