Good Hotel Guide Review
‘The name means “leg of stone”,’ a Guide inspector tells us – a reference to the rocks on and over which this ‘fabulous, ultra-modern’ B&B is built. A Victorian lodge with views across the Mawddach estuary has here been dramatically reinvented by owners Sara and Richard Parry-Jones. ‘We were amazed at the entrance… an incredible glass staircase… a tunnel, trickling water, which led through to gardens, woods, seats for relaxing and admiring the view.’ Mor bedroom had an espresso machine, local spring water, ‘a grand marble bathroom with power shower’. Other rooms have, variously, a whirlpool bath, a hot tub on a terrace, an in-room, hand-crafted wooden bathtub, and a cedar and slate steam room. A log-fired biomass boiler supplies underfloor heating throughout. The Parry-Joneses are welcoming hosts, with everyone on first-name terms. Four nights a week, new head chef Wayne Scarlet cooks a Tuscan-inspired dinner in the stone-walled dining room. Perhaps Welsh leek soup with a drizzle of truffle oil; crab and ricotta ravioli. Breakfast brings fruit smoothies, free-range eggs Benedict with crispy pancetta, hot smoked salmon, local sausages, hash browns and much more.
