Reviewed 23 August 2013

What a great find. Our two day stay was extremely good and we will return. As soon as we walked through the door all the staff were first class and nothing was too much trouble. We enjoyed the food, the bar, the location, the room.... in fact everything.

We stayed here for three nights recently. It is one of the nicest small hotels we have stayed in. The standard of decoration and up keep of the property is excellent, modern, very comfortable, clean. Gwernan Hotel is in a peaceful beautiful location and early morning walks are a must.
Breakfast was perfect, a great way to start the day. Would stay here again.

What a find! Beautiful room, lovely vibe to the place, fantastic friendly hosts, the room was spotless and views breathtaking! Really cant beat the location for a walking holiday, theres even a 15 minute walk around the lake that can be done before breakfast! Nothing was too much trouble, we enjoyed every minute, and we will return!

Great accommodation! Our room was lovely, good size, plenty of teas, coffees, hot chocolate and homemade biscuits. The breakfast was fantastic, with local sausages and bacon, and the fresh fruit salad was amazing! The restaurant menu had a good choice and the bar is well stocked with good wines! The owners were very welcoming and helpful, they provided maps of local walks as well as walking sticks, and were full of local knowledge. All in all a perfect break for us!

lovely hotel, good service at all times by polite friendly staff, whole hotel was always clean and spotless, perfect location for cadair idris (not so sure if you're there for anything else as it is a bit remote), room was smaller but not too small, very well decorated, floor slanted but we didn't find this an issue, shower didn't work at first but staff soon explained how to quickfix the airlock issue and this worked fine, nice menu in the restaurant but not much to suit us personally so we only ate in once, (however on this once is was lovely food), breakfast was great but maybe a bit late starting at 830am, no welcome pack in room which I felt is needed (for basic details of hotel mealtimes menu etc and for details of local area) (Ps cadair idris is a hard walk if you aint done a mountain in a while or you aint fit)

While the room was average really, the location was fantastic. The property has a lake right out back where a boat can be rented for half days or full days. It was a bit hard to locate at first, but worth finding. It is a short walk to get to the Cader Idris where the hiking was incredible! The views were absolutely stunning! I thought having check in at 3 PM was a bit late particularly since one is expected to check out before 11 AM. There were two bottles of water and one cookie which was stale to greet us, but I wasn't expecting much anyway

Dear Deborah.
Thank you for your comments and I am glad you thought we were worth the find.
The complimentary bottles of Welsh mineral water are provided together with a selection of Fairtrade and organic teas and coffees and we bake our butter shortbread biscuits daily.
I am very concerned about your last comment, especially as you seemed very disappointed that we could not accommodate you for another two nights stay later in the month! I would very much appreciate you contacting me personally either by telephone 01341422488 or by email gwernanhotel@btconnect.com so that we may resolve any issues. Many Thanks Eleri Roberts

A true gem of accommodation set in the most amazing setting. A very warm and friendly welcome by the hosts where nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and stocked with quality beverages... Oh and homemade cookies!..
A well stocked bar, very tasty breakfasts and dinners from locally sourced produce.
If you enjoy fishing take your rod and flies.. Very idyllic , drifting on a rowing boat casting for trout.
We will certainly be revisiting.
