      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.

      Today was the last day for the season that the Talyllyn Railway in Tywyn Wales was running. It was a definite "todo" on Tristan's list as this railway was essentially the inspiration for the Thomas the Tank Engine stories.

      Was it meantioned that Jessamy had christened the car as "Chester"? We were all up early, had breakfast in the Bath hotel, packed bags into Chester and on the way by 8AM. The car navigation app said that it would take 4 hours to Tywyn and for Tristan;s sake we ...

      ... as trees reached out over the rapids of the river, across wooden bridges and even passed through a thick fir forest. It was a truly amazing walk that Anne and I enjoyed so much. It was so surreal and so sensory that we had such a great time. Passing Miners Bridge, a wooden ramp over the white water of the river, we came to a new track that was more bogged by the rain. The going became tougher and less scenic. Eventually we reached a small hut and cut up towards the road, ...

      ... and what seems to be moor land. I haven't been up there, partially because of a lack of time and also because the helpful man in the site reception said that he thought the lesser used paths (at this time of year) would be very overgrown. The beach is very extensive and made mostly of firm sand, and even better, for the most part dogs are allowed on the beach. So every day Treacle has had the opportunity to race around on the sand.

      Climbing Tryfan Bach

      Keen to do some more route bagging in preparation for our SPA we headed to Craig Caseg Fraith Isaf, which had lots of fairly short routes for our grades. We had a lovely sunny day and managed to get lots of routes done. After some lunch we moved on to Tryfan Bach, a nice big slab of rock taking 2 pitches to sail up. I think I placed 1 bit of gear up for the entire climb! It was so slabby you could pretty much just scramble up it hands and feet. Another good days climbing!
