Reviewed 11 July 2010

We were welcomed by Nigel and he showed us our rooms and explained everything.
He also directed us to some nearby pubs for a good evening meal. The next morning we met his wife Madge and she cooked a delicious breakfast for us.
Both of them are very friendly and welcoming. The place is very nicely done; it used to be a building where the well-to-do girls learned there social skills after school-hours. And it still has that spirit, but with the comforts of today.

The view of Dolgellau from the North side of its river, Afon Winion with Cadair Idris above it, is storybook perfection. The mountain itself has an almost biblical look to it with its rocky crags overseeing daily life in this charming hamlet.

Through the local TIC we found our lodging for our stay in Dolgellau, Penycoed Hall. We immediately bonded with the owners, Madge and Nigel who made us feel more than guests in their home but like family members home for a few days. The building itself is remarkable with a grand front entrance and an even grander staircase leading up to the bedrooms. We were the only guests for the period that we were there. Not that it would have mattered with its 18 to 24 inch thick walls we not have been disturbed by a rock and roll band playing in the next room.

The bathroom, with its giant tub was marvelous and appreciated by Joan as she indulged herself in a luxurious soak in its depths.

Everthing about Penycoed Hall pleased us. The room, the breakfast, the cleanliness and best of all the hospitality shown to us by Madge & Nigel.
