Good Hotel Guide Review

At the end of a jiggledy single-track road up a steep hill, Paula and Peter Thompson’s ‘very family-friendly’, ‘super little hotel’ stands out for its simplicity and folksy charm. With oak beams, stone walls, log fires and well-used furnishings, the 16th-century farmhouse and 18th-century granary appeal to guests who come for the ‘splendid’ welcome and ‘laid-back’ atmosphere. Characterful, ‘spotlessly clean’ bedrooms reflect the age of the buildings; some have small windows (guests this year thought their room gloomy). For a laugh, choose the room with a walk-in wardrobe in what might once have been a latrine. Gather for aperitifs in the homey lounge – ‘a wood-burner makes it cosy’ – then sit down to Peter Thompson’s ‘commendable’ candlelit dinner. Local ingredients give the flavour of the place (try Welsh rarebit with Cenarth smoked cheese; pan-fried hake, king prawns, capers); an ‘interesting’ wine list rounds out the ‘very good’ meal. ‘With a good bottle of Pouilly-Fumé and the enchanting views across Cardigan Bay, it was a magical evening.’ A fine base to explore a ‘lovely part of the country’. (P and CM, and others)

Guest comments

'A super little hotel. A splendid welcome from Paula and Peter, who gave discreet and laid-back service. The most enchanting experience was the views across Cardigan Bay where one day we saw a sunset to compare with anywhere in the world. With a bottle of Pouilly Fumée, it was magical. The bedroom in the old part of the house had a bathroom tucked among oak beams, and stone walls, and was good. But the highlight was dinner – as good as anything we tasted on our Welsh journey ' - Pamela and Clifford Morrison - April, 2015
'A wonderful welcome awaits everyone here. You are greeted by a roaring log fire in the dining area and reception. A wonderful start to a superb break. This ancient farmhouse, Grade II listed, is small enough to feel personal and intimate, yet spacious enough to seem like guest accommodationrather than someone's home. It is tucked away up a short, steep road, giving a feeling of peace and tranquility, yet only a few miles from the lively town of Barmouth. The views are stunning. All of the rooms are different, from the family rooms a little way from the house, to four-poster rooms in the main building. The food was excellent. ' - Sandrea Mosses - April, 2010
