We stayed here for a few nights in June and found it ticked all the boxes...within an easy 5 minute walk of the train station and seafront at Fairbourne it's a great central location from which to explore the many delights of north and mid Wales...the level of service throughout our stay was excellent and there was plenty of information...

Me and my wife stayed at Einion House on our first-ever visit to Wales. We feel really lucky to have stayed there. The location is excellent, close to picturesque Barmouth and Mawddach estuary, as well as the local Fairbourne beach and blue lake. What really set the B&B apart from other B&Bs we have stayed at, was the exceptional hospitality....

Alwyn is the best (at par with Seaforth cottage- Ian Mckinnon, isle of skye) host ever. Honest opinion - This BnB is NOT in Dolgellau. Its 9 miles out on the A493 on the Southern edge of the Mawdach estuary. Basically opposite to Barmouth with the estuary in between. Let me tell you, that I thanked my stars I stayed...

Exceptionally friendly and humourous hosts who keep their environment spotlessly clean and have good knowledge of the surrounding area. The breakfasts are absolutely lovely and they cannot do enough for you such is their enthusiasm for their business and their customers. The b&b has an excellent location as it is so close for cycling or walking into Barmouth or to...

We were recommended this B&B by a local and stopped off here about 8pm at night after spending the day walking Cadair Idris. Alvin was incredibly welcoming considering we arrived so late in the day without much prior notice. This B&B is really clean, and modern. The views of the Mawddach Estuary were spectacular too. We had a restful stay...
