Wenallt Guest House
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We stayed at the Wenallt Guest House for a short break in August 2014 . An excellent B&B , Sarah & Ian made us most welcome, . Our room ( the old housekeepers room ) was beautiful with tea, coffee etc facilities, and homemade cookies, TV and a comfortable sofa and plenty of space and a view across the river to the hills beyond. The room was well furnished and the bed and pillows like home, Breakfasts were superb with a variety of choices. Would definitely return and recommend Wenallt.

Room Tip: Room to the rear overlooking the church and river

Our first time to stay at Wenallt, but would love to return. Very friendly and welcoming hosts, but not overbearing. Food was excellent and we loved the views. We booked an extra night, so had to move rooms and both were of a very high standard. Have recommended to friends and family,

Lovely large room beautifully appointed with excellent en suite. Sarah and Ian were very welcoming and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Good central location for town, sea and countryside. This was our first visit and we would certainly return.

My third time staying at Wenallt and still just as pleased as the first time. Nice old house looking out over the village of Penrhyndeudraeth, the estuary and the hills beyond. Quiet with friendly hosts who stay out of the way, but manage to appear whenever you need them. The breakfast is so good you probably won't need lunch! Reasonably good restaurants (Pubs & Indian plus a Chip shop & Chinese take away) within walking distance and some really good restaurants within 15 minute drive. Generous Tea/Coffee/HotChoc with kettle in room. Great location for Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways - the host is one of the steam engine drivers and was also project manager for a significant part of the recent rebuilding of the Welsh Highland. I intend staying again on my next visit to this part of the world.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Many of the original features remain of this 1900s house, built for the Baptist minister of the nearby church, but the facilities offered are right up to date, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Soft pillows (I always carry my own...no need this time), - synthetic ones available - light duvet, settee and easy chair, and little touches..a welcome tray, sewing kit, shoe cleaning kit,hot water bottle, home-made cookies, all offer a sense of well being. The house is non-smoking and "as green as possible".
B/fast was excellent with a good choice of cereals and preserves, fruit, and a piping hot Welsh cooked b/fast, using local produce.
In the evening we ate at the Brondan Arms, about 2 miles away, with a good and wide choice of menu and an outside sitting/eating area overlooking Snowdon. On the first night we ate at the Lemon Tree (a short walk down the hill) where you could get any combination from the large Bangladesh menu. It was half price on the night we went, so an evening meal for two was £11, exceptional value!
Parking is available. We suggest you approach the house from the bottom of the hill in the villiage of Penrhryndeudreath.
We stayed at Wenallt to use the Welsh Highland Railway, only 10 mins away in Porthmadog. We suggest you get your ticket early and park in the public carpark behind the Shell garage where there is plenty of room (£3.50 for the day). There is parking at the station but you would need to be there by 8.30 am. Train reservations are for first class only.
We would not hesitate to return to Wenallt some time in the future.

If you want a Rolls Royce B&B, then come here. It's quiet, roomy, luxurious, with lots of extras. The breakfast is superb. It's friendly. Lovely basket of shampoo etc., flannel, dressing gown, in the spotlessly clean bathroom. Tea/coffee/chocolate making facilities with tea pot and fresh milk on request. Home made biscuits out every day. Wow!

Room Tip: Just ask for what you want, but all the rooms are superb.

Despite it being nearly Christmas and our hosts being very busy with decorating their front room before family arriving, they gave us the usual thoughtful care and attention, wonderful cooking and all facilities, and were incredibly flexible when needed. I think this is our 4th visit - all the others have been in summer, but we had just as good a time there in a stormy winter week. A really exceptional B&B. It makes a very comfortable and spacious 'home base' from which to explore or re-visit the area.

Room Tip: We were a group of friends this time, using a twin room and a single room - both were equally good.
