    Historical Traveler Reviews Morwendon Guest House Barmouth

    A Fabulous birthay

    from

    We stayed at Morwendon as a get-away and to celebrate my partners birthday. It was a 3 night half board stay and was just amazing.... The hosts Tereasa & Geoff couldn't do enough to make the break extra special.

    Our room overlooked the bay and we were treated to a couple of lovely sunsets. The room was spacious with a double bed and sofa to watch the sunsets and the world go by.

    Even though we had an ensuite shower, there was a large bathroom across the landing with a bath that we could also use, excellent if out walking all day. On the ground floor was the dining room and a comfortable guest lounge, with TV, games and a large selection of DVD's (if you have time to watch any!).

    Tea & coffee, fruit basket AND sherry were waiting in the room. The food at every meal was excellent, prepared, cooked and served to a very high standard. The homemade bread & herb rolls the homemade soup, chicken liver pate and the desserts were all superb. Portions were also generous. To top it all at breakfast on my partners birthday a card and small gift were waiting at the table, just great.

    Every aspect of the stay was fabulous, we would highly recommend Morwendon to anyone wanting to get away, but enjoy the home comforts of excellent food and comfortable surrounds.

    Perfect Guest House

    from

    Extremely welcoming, Very clean, Peaceful, Lovely food.

    Great place to stay

    from

    Recently spent 2 days at Morwendon House - and I cannot fault the setting and service, set right on the beautiful Welsh coast just above Barmouth - with truly stunning views out to sea and coastline

    my travelling companion was raving about the food quality which was very good, along with the very helpful Hosts, who bent over backwards to help us

    will stay there again

    Wonderful weekend retreat

    from

    We have just returned from spending a memorable valentine's weekend at the Morwendon House Hotel. The proprietors Teresa and Geoff are really genuine and made us feel very welcome. They worked hard to make the weekend a very special one and nothing was too much trouble.

    The hotel although small is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and full of "little extras" which we weren't expecting. From the moment we arrived the service was excellent - afternoon tea was unexpected and very tasty! We can definately recommend the Welsh cakes!! Our room was large with a lovely view over Cardigan Bay (exactly as described on their website), with tea and coffee fascilities and sherry and fresh fruit.

    The evening meal was delicious and plentiful - we could hardly move afterwards! Breakfast was also very good with plenty of choice and all freshly made with homemade bread and local produce.

    The area is unspoilt and has some stunning scenery and lovely wild beaches. Great for a get away from it all holiday. Thank you for a lovely weekend and good luck for the future.

    We can definately recommend this hotel and will hopefully return one day soon.

    Fantastic food

    from

    We took advantage of the Valentine special offer, and the hosts Geoff and Teresa went out of their way to make it special for us.

    The evening meal was very romantic, with a red rose for the ladies and a bottle of champagne on ice awaiting us in the dining room. The 4 course meal advertised was in fact a 6 course meal if you included the homemade pear sorbet and coffee and mints. All of the food was freshly prepared and delicious and of generous proportion. We particularly enjoyed the homemade soup and rolls and of course the welsh black steaks that were cooked to perfection.

    The breakfast was equally impressive and even though still full from the night before we had a full "welsh", well it seemed rude not to!

    The room was spacious, comfortable and nicely decorated with little touches such as fruit and sherry as well as the usual tea, coffee and water.

    The view across the bay were spectacular and my husband indulged in a little bird watching: the oyster catchers and the dancing seagull in the garden were of particular amusement!

    We will be making a return visit soon.

    Highly recommended

    from

    Very comfortable accomodation with excellent food. Magnificent sea view. Very friendly and helpful proprietors.

    An excellent choice.

    from

    We have just returned from a short break at the Morwendon House, Llanaber, North Wales which is situated on the Cardigan Bay coast commanding magnificent views over the whole of the ba y and north to the Lleyn penninsula.

    The house is beatifully appointed with every comfort for guests.

    Our hosts , Geoff and Teresa Challenor made us most welcome and were attentive to our every need.

    The breakfasts were generous in portion, excellent in quality, well presented and pleasingly varied in content (Geoff's home made fresh bread was a particular delight).

    On offer locally one is spoilt for choice with the great variety of places to visit, on foot, by car or by train; the local "station" (an unmanned platform) is some three hundred meters walk away and the drivers of the regular shuttle will obligingly stop and pick you up if you raise your hand.

    We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing break at a very affordable price. Great value! Thank you Morwendon, we'll be back.

    Amazing retreat

    from

    We stayed at Morwendon House this weekend and it was a truely lovely and relaxing experience from start to finish. The location of the hotel is perfect with breath taking views of Cardigan Bay. Everything was fantastic including:- the warm welcome, the delicious food, and lovely stylish rooms. We will definately be visiting again.

    Even better than I had hoped ...

    from

    All too often one builds up expectations far too highly and, believe me our expectations were high. We read the flier and thought 'if Morwendon and the food comes up to those standards, then we'll be happy'. Morwendon House exceeded our thoughts.

    The hosts, Teresa and Geoff were like lifelong friends without 'interfering'.

    Quality shone out - from the welcome to farewell. The locally sourced food was superb and Geoff even bought in organic salmon especially to meet dietary requirements. Cleanliness in every aspect was faultless.

    Having run a nearby hotel before moving to Morwendon, the local knowledge meant we were given excellent advice for local attractions and routes.

    It was so good that we have already booked our next visit and are looking forward to returning in the Spring.

    Great Guest House

    from

    A great guest house run by a lovely couple. The place is spotless and is in a fabulous position overlooking the sea. Our room was very nice indeed with some super finishing touches including a fruit bowl and a decanter of sherry. The view was stunning.

    The food is locally sourced and cooked very well (best steak I've eaten in ages!). The full Welsh breakfast is not to be missed!

    If your looking for a relaxing stay in a beautiful part of Wales then this is the place to go.

    ... where King Edward built another massive castle. The town’s English pronunciation is “Carnarvon”, just like the current occupants of Highclere Castle. I don’t know if there’s a connection.

    This one wasn’t considered as crucial as some of the others, and its interior deteriorated over the centuries. It was finally listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Prince Charles was officially ...

    We continue the climb, scrambling up rocks, giddily laughing at each missed step and glimpse of the top. Seeking out nooks and crannies to bury tired hands and feet to gain that extra metre. A final scramble brings us to the the peak and the true beauty of Wales is manifest. The cliffs drop away on all sides making tired legs crumble and open mouths gasp. We take a step back, click the camera and crack open the flask, ...

    Saturday morning, I'm up early and longing to walk along the beach. The town is quiet, not even the fishermen are up yet and the estuary is calm at high tide. The teenagers have long gone from the jetty where last night they waited their turn to leap into the cold seawater below and for now the lobster pots are ...

    ... another seaside place which was quite pretty with a sandy beach,and it was a beautiful sunny day too. There is a lovely little harbour there and fishing trips can be done here. Of course we had to see the refinery at Pembroke for Ross. We were surprised at the size of it. It is amazing what you find when you take a wrong turn. We ended up in the town of Burry, where Amelia Earhart landed in 1928 . The town has erected memorial to her. We ...
