My husband and I chose this pub restaurant to have a celebratory meal for our wedding anniversary. I ordered chicken in a wine sauce which unfortunately was a kin to chewing string. I queried if the chicken had been freshly cooked and the waitress informed me it had been freshly reheated. I mistakenly reordered and selected the lamb steak. When...

I stayed at this B&B for a two night golf break at Royal St Davids course. The staff are very friendly and the rooms very clean. The rooms however are small and the en-suites are tiny so do not expect too much. The breakfasts are good and the staff will help if you have any special requirements. The wi-fi is...

We stayed here with friends, and were pleasantly surprised how lovely and comfortable the rooms were for the price paid. Our stay there was comfortable and the bathroom nice with a lovely bath to soak in after a day on the road. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for comfort and cleanliness.

We had a one night break at the beginning of May and chose Harlech. We didn't partake of any of the surroundings unfortunately, as it was just a stop-off. However, the guest house we stayed in was charming, staff very attentive, rooms were clean, and the restaurant food and wine was superb. We had a lovely breakfast the next morning...

We stayed here on golf trip - and the hotel was a very good base. The hotel was very flexible and obliging in meeting our needs - e.g. early breakfast some days and later dinner on others. Food in the restaurant was good, nicely cooked and tasty. Excellent breakfast! Bar was well staffed with a good range of beers, including...

We stayed as a golfing party of 10 for 4 nights and had the whole hotel to ourselves.The location is excellent, being opposite Royal St Davids Golf Club. The hotel parking is excellent and convenient. As the organiser I was greeted by Joanne on arrival and received a very helpful briefing on the various dining options in Harlech. In fact...

With some variable reviews, I wasn't expecting much so I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by the charming landlady who showed me a perfectly nice room. Sadly it was downhill from there. There was a cloying smell of nasty air freshener, I found the offending item and threw it in the wardrobe so I could breathe. Next shock was...

Our one night stay here was so convenient. Easy parking on site, friendly pub to relax, delicious dinners in the restaurant, large clean rooms to retire to, good breakfasts to wake up to, friendly people to encounter, and good prices as well. One stop shopping!

We were made to feel very welcome. Evening meal and breakfast were both good and we slept well. The proprietors were accommodating towards food preferences. We had a very pleasant potter around Harlech the next day. Lovely.
