Reviewed 4 April 2013

Stayed here many time for mountainbiking trips. Very friendly and always happy to see us return. We usually have the flat at the top as it has a sitting room, own entrance and kitchen and we can come and go as we please.

Penycoed is run by a lovely couple who make you feel like friends rather than visitors, whilst also leaving you all the privacy you want. The breakfasts were good - and include requests! - and the view of Cader Idris from the bay window of our room was beautiful. Also you can go on country walks that start straight from the pretty garden. Altogether very restful.

Wow, what a place. We felt like royalty in our lovely suite. We were in Dolgellau researching family history, and our terrific hosts were even able to help us in that. They were so warm and welcoming it was as though we were coming into the home of old friends.

Stunning old mansion house with annex self-contained cottage where we stayed. Very comfortable accommodation, hugely spacious and fabulous views and garden from up on a hill looking out at Cader Idris. Very friendly and welcoming hosts, good cycle storage and only a short walk into Dolgellau town for food.

It is with regret that I write this review. The people at Penycoed hall are lovely, so nice that I would have spent hour in their company. But the accomodation as such is not what we expected. It is a place with amazing potential in a great location, but the rooms are in need of some modernization. We had a room with a bathroom and were told to be the only ones in that floor, but our bathroom was connected to another room (locked, but we could perfectly hear the other guests' conversation as it they were by our side). There was considerable noise at night, and it took me quite long to sleep. The doors to the "apartment" we stayed in did not have a lock, so virtually anyone could access it. I feel that with a bit of an investment and some attention to detail this place could turn into a very good guest house. However, as it is now, I would probably consider other options in that price range before coming back.
