Good Hotel Guide Review
How times change: steps from the medieval castle, Glyn and Jacqueline Roberts’s ‘impressive’ restaurant-with-rooms occupies two of Harlech’s oldest buildings, described in 1798 as a cheerless spot offering no bed, just a dirt floor strewn with rushes. Today, Guide readers praise the ‘excellent’ contemporary rooms, each well equipped with a king-size bed, tea and coffee, fresh fruit, Welsh spring water, slippers. Three have a sofa bed, ideal for a child; some have ‘wonderful’ views of sea and mountains. The tables are laid with white linens at dinner; after canapés in the bar, sit down to Glyn Roberts’s modern Welsh menus, including, perhaps, grilled Milford Haven cod, vanilla salt, saffron potatoes; herb-roasted loin of lamb, bubble and squeak, buttered carrots. At breakfast, muesli and jam are home made, juice is freshly squeezed, yogurt and honey are local, hot dishes are cooked to order. Well placed for touring the coast; beaches and fishing spots are within easy reach. Have boots made for walking? The town is within Snowdonia national park: gentle strolls and challenging hikes abound. (Mary Coles, IM)
