The best B and B we have ever stayed in ! Excellent views, hospitality and breakfast. If I could give six stars out of five then I would. So quiet and peaceful, the only problem was the lack of eating places in Harlech.

We do not mind six stars! The pub is now doing food again which helps on the days that the other eating places are closed. We never tire of the views of the mountains and beach from our house which change constantly with the weather and the seasons.

Having cycled through a storm, we arrived soaked and bedraggled, but received a very warm welcome. Our bikes were stored safely (valet parking!) and our waterproofs taken to a drying room. We were then shown to a beautiful, spacious room with a wonderful view across Harlech Castle, to the sands and mountains beyond. The bedroom had a supply of Fairtrade...

It was a shame you had to contend with the wet Welsh weather on the day you arrived. We hope the rest of your cycle trip went well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly and welcoming(but not overbearingly so) -even giving us a lift from the railway station and providing little touches such as homemade Welsh cakes. Beautiful views in a very comfortable room. And an excellent breakfast including homemade bread. One of the nicest B and Bs we have stayed in for quite some time.

We enjoyed meeting you and glad you liked our little touches. We will always collect guests from the railway station - a great help especially if you have heavy bags.

Had a very clean and comfortable stay at Pen y Garth. Wonderful view of Harlech Castle from our room and the breakfast was delicious. Probably my best nights sleep on a firm mattress. Very quite location with sweeping views.

Peter was very welcoming and the house is wonderful. His hospitality is outstanding and provides a positive stay. The only draw back to the stay is the eating options in the town. They are very limited to non existing. However if you can get around this your stay will be evrything you want.

My husband and I stopped for one night on our way down to South Wales. We were lucky enough to stay in the Castle view room which as you would imagine had great views! The room and the whole house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The home made welsh cakes were fabulous - I've had several since and none...

Great stay, Peter and Cheryl are awesome! I drove up and 10 mins later we had two rooms with amazing castle views (even better at night when lit up). Breakfast was great fresh warm homemade bread and jams were amazing. Very clean property and nice chairs at Window in room to sit and watch the Castle and great Welsh scenery....
