Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Has now been closed for nearly 2 years.After being abandoned overnight initially, it must have had food and drink left there for getting on 2 years, with slates off roof and collapsed ceilings it must be full of all sorts of vermin by now.
Its a disgrace to Tywyn and something needs doing about it.

Now shut up and closed so not able to comment further on any aspect of the interior. What else can one say? Just hope that some one or some group with inspiration, commitment and deep pockets can bring it back to life

From the moment you walk in you want to walk out! It it has shocking smell, the decour is dated (but not in a good way) and you cant even concider playing on the pool table!!! I would rather drink a can of carling than get pint from the pump in this place!

Never struck me as correct vocation for the hosts.
Premises smell damp, bar mats always dripping and stinking of stale beer (like vinegar).
Dirty, nose picking on bar duty despite being told about it. Just not really interested in running the establishment as a viable business at all. Always short of stock,with the excuse 'it will be in tomorrow', or on next delivery lorry.
Dissappeared from Tywyn in early October,with no prior notification to anybody of their plans.
This building should be the flagship of the town but now lies empty and apparently abandoned.

My colleagues and I make a point of returning to the Corbett every year because (a) accommodation is always available at short notice (b) the rooms are large, clean and comfortable and (c) over the many years we have stayed there we have come to relish the anticipation of discovering whether the Corbett Arms can survive yet another year of seemingly remorseless degradation.

The owner, who we understand made his fortune in the record industry, is always pleasant and willing to talk about his hopes for the future (he lost his wife last year) even if the prospect of the hotel's revival looks a distant prospect.

Whilst not endorsing his inability to maintain the standards of the past, managing an enormous white elephant like the Corbett Arms on what are becoming presumably very limited funds probably deserves sympathy rather than constant vilification and virtual abuse his efforts seem to engender.

We visit this part of the world every year and love popping into the Corbett for a pint.
It just gets weirder and weirder. Get yourself a good spot at the bar and enjoy the banter with the owner (? I assume he is) and his son. Stick to the ale as I don't think there's much else. To be fair I feel they have been saddled with this once great Tywyn institution and now don't really know what to do with it. It's more about the lifestyle than the money!? We've never actually stayed or sampled the food, other than the odd packet of bacon fries, which have always been in date , well presented and the perfect accompaniment to our pint. Often wished we could stay longer as there is always a lot to learn about the hotel itself and the local area from the owner. It's a shame the old guy at the bar has now moved as he was great value too. When next in tywyn don't just dismiss it on the basis of all the reviews, call in and judge for yourself. We love it.

Having recently spend a few days as a guest at the 'Corbett Arms Hotel' in Tywyn, Wales, I found in it a pleasantly comfortable relaxed ambience, which is what I was looking for. If you are looking for somewhere peaceful to relax for a break, I would recommend you pay this establishment a visit if this is the kind of holiday you prefer.
I found the proprietor and his son to be very polite and helpful. The hotel retains a definate Victorian charm about the place, built when hotels had this in mind. This is the impression I had when I entered the foyer and continued to have for the duration of my stay. It suited me and I would suggest other visitors would have the same impression.

Room Tip: I was given the bridal suite so I can't complain.
