Good Hotel Guide Review

Rustic and folksy, Paula and Peter Thompson’s ‘quirky’ 16th-century farmhouse at the base of the Rhinog mountains is a ‘friendly, welcoming’ spot and a fine base for exploring a ‘lovely part of the country’. There’s old-world charm in the log fires, ancient oak beams and spiral stone staircase; fans come for the homespun ambience. ‘A wood-burner lit in the afternoon made the lounge a cosy place in the evening.’ Unpretentious bedrooms (some with a newly updated bathroom) are in the main building and a converted 18th-century granary. Ring to discuss room choices before booking: every one is different. In the oak-beamed hall lit with lamps and candles, ‘dinner is the highlight’. Peter Thompson’s ‘commendable’ daily-changing menu puts the emphasis on local seafood and meats in dishes such as Rhydlewis smoked salmon, lemon and horseradish mayonnaise; Welsh Black beef rib-eye steak, red onion and crab apple marmalade. An ‘interesting’ wine list provides liquid accompaniment. Step outside before dusk: ‘Most enchanting of all, the views across Cardigan Bay gave a sunset that would compare with anywhere else in the world.’

Guest comments

'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
'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. This ancient farmhouse is small enough to feel personal, yet spacious enough to seem like guest accommodation rather than someone's home. It is tucked away up a short, steep road, giving a feeling of 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
