We love Barmouth and we love The Seashell B&B. Friendly, comfortable and quiet with an excellent breakfast and a lovely homely feel. We always have room 3 for ourselves and our Granddaughter and it's ideal - lovely sea view, en suite and a decent size telly makes for a perfect base. Nicely done out this year too, love the fresh look. Cant fault the place, we'll be back next year with another little one in tow probably.

My wife and I have just stayed here for 3 nights. The room was a family room on the first floor with a bay window overlooking the dunes and the sea beyond. There is also a small settee to sit and admire the view. The hotel in general Is very clean and Cheryl and Paul were excellent hosts. The traditional breakfast was well cooked and presented well. I would strongly recommend their hotel.

My husband, dog and I stayed here for 2 nights in September while visiting family. Colin and Cheryl were very welcoming. We stayed in room 9, at the top of the b n b. The room was warm and cosy, lovely bed and gorgeous soft linen and towels. Heating on 24/7 and you can turn the radiators in the room up/ down as you wish which we thought was perfect. Parking spaces on the side roads was very easily to access. Breakfast was fantastic , huge portion and the bacon was delicious! All rooms have fridges which is very handy. They accept dogs in certain rooms for £5 a night which we thought was fab. We had a lovely stay and will be back soon. All I would advise is that if you find stairs tricky, ask for a 1st floor room .
