We stayed at Y Meirionnydd for just one night but we stayed in their largest room - the Meirion. As the images on their website suggest, this is indeed a modern, stylish and comfortably furnished place. Given Y Meirionydd's position in the centre of town they do not have the spectacular views afforded to other properties in the area and so need to make up for this by ensuring the interior of property is easy on the eye and they have certainly acheived this.
There are some lovely touches in the room - a tray to put your muddy boots in & a little bag for the hairdryer. The feature room we stayed in had a gorgeous stone wall feature; a shaker style wooden headboard and really beautiful raw silk curtains.
Whilst not faultless, the service is attentive and the staff were helpful.
My rating really only includes my experience of the stay in the hotel including breakfast.
We (my partner and I) did eat at the hotel but found it to be rather disappointing as we felt that given the prices of the dishes we were expecting rather better quality of ingredients or execution of the dishes but in truth it was - to our minds - fairly average and if the dishes had come with a lower price tag then we would probably have had an expectation more in line with our actual experience of the food. For a similar price you can eat at the Mawddach (which is absolutely exceptional) which puts the prices at Y Meirionydd into stark relief. I note that the hotel's owner has responded to any negative comments made in the past about the food or the property and that he has said that they do use good local suppliers for their food. If this is the case then I can only say that I would perhaps try to find alternative local suppliers as the quality of ingredients doesn't shine through. In truth the evening meal probably lowered our overall experience of our stay but I know many people will stay here and not eat at the restaurant so I feel it's only fair to rate the hotel on this premise.
In a strange contrast to the evening meal, the breakfast was actually great and clearly used well sourced ingredients. A great start to the day!
In summary: In terms of it's location it's a great place to stay and the rooms and brekkie are fab but maybe find somewhere different for supper...?
