Good Hotel Guide Review

It’s easy to unwind at ‘welcoming’ Peter and Paula Thompson’s ‘super little hotel’ overlooking Cardigan Bay and the Lleyn peninsula. Sunset views ‘with a bottle of Pouilly Fumé’ are ‘magical’. The 16th-century farmhouse, surrounded by fields and dry stone walls, offers quirky historic features, including a former latrine turned into a walk-in wardrobe with mullion window; a sink attached to a door; a spiral stone staircase. Some ‘comfortable, spotlessly clean’ bedrooms in the main house have a four-poster and an inglenook; those in the converted granary offer exposed stone walls and a private entrance. Bathrooms are being updated, but pillows may be ‘past their best’. Pre-dinner drinks are served in the ‘cosy’ lounge with wood-burner. Readers consistently praise the ‘delicious’ dinners in the candlelit dining room. A member of the Slow Food Movement, Llwyndu embraces local and Welsh ingredients to create a daily-changing menu including such dishes as Cenarth smoked and Hafod cheeses in garlic mayonnaise with spring onions, wrapped in locally cured ham with a Gruyère topping; seared scallops with black pudding and shiitake mushrooms. An ‘interesting’ wine list oils the wheels.

Guest comments

'This is in the most fabulous location for exploring the area around Barmouth and further into North Wales. There are beautiful walks and bicycle rides up the estuary as well as interesting castles and ruins to explore with history-mad children. The family room is small but beautifully appointed and warm as toast. The experienced owners will also cook delicious evening meals as well as your breakfast, if needed. ' - LS - October, 2018
'Llwyndu is full of character and in a good location. The hosts are most obliging and welcoming. The meals we ate were superb both at breakfast and dinner. ' - GH - July, 2017
