This was our 2nd time at the beautiful Pen Y Gwryd pub-hostel. I've personally visited and stayed through out the years and on every occasion had a wonderful time and met many interesting people. This occasion wasn't any less interesting or enjoyable, now under the careful handling of the Sons of Brian and Jane the legacy live on, comfortable and relaxing but still maintaining a disciplined approach to ensure all guest have a great stay.
Rooms, games room and bar all kept clean and tidy with lots to keep people entertained. Food on the whole was very good, hearty breakfast and a welcomed dinner ensured we were well nourished and happy after two days of arduous walking. My only criticism would be to serve a so called 'pie' which in the end resembled a stew with two small pieces of pastry on top..... Hhmmm not a pie my mum would be happy to plate up, lastly the use of UHT squirty cream.... Yuk, dreadful stuff and not a worthy substitute to such lovely puddings....
Never-the-less an excellent weekend made better by the beautiful weather, wonderful mountains and all the staff at the lovely Pen y Gwryd, from all at Group X, thank you...
