Outstanding in every respect. Extremely comfortable rooms, a guests lounge, Lorraine's wonderful cooking, Alex's helpfulness and knowledge of the locality, magnificent views and easy to find on the edge of the lake. Fabulous.

Literally stumbled across this at the very last minute and what an amazing stumble it was. Beautiful B&B in a stunning part of the world and the whole experience was fantastic from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

Beautiful place to stay at the gateway to Cader Idris and Llyn Tal-y-llyn, the former a wonderful climb and the latter a very popular lake for sea trout fishing. Alex and Lorraine are excellent hosts who have vast local knowledge about what, when and where to enjoy the outdoors and experience the best of Snowdonia! The service is very personal...

We had a wonderful 5 night stay here. Very clean room with lovely views, and superbly appointed. Very nice breakfast each morning, and always enjoyed evenings in the lounge with a bottle of wine, scrabble, and company with the hotel's dog :-) Will definitely come back :-)

Having just returned from a short 3 night stay with Alex and Lorraine we would just like to say a huge thank you to them both for making our stay so fantastic, the feeling of staying somewhere that makes you feel that you are literally home from home is very rare these days, but they pull it off with ease....

We stayed for four nights earlier this month during a travelling holiday through Wales. From the start we were made very welcome and the quality of the accommodation was first rate. We took our dog and she was made very welcome as well. We had two evening meals during our stay which were delicious and breakfast was also first class....
