Very nice guest house, food plentiful. Clean and comfortable. Very helpful landlady and a couple of evenings we ate out early and came back to play cards in the dining room which was no issue. No restaurant or pub within walking distance which was disappointing!

A beautiful house surrounded by amazing countryside with a stunning view outside. Rooms are spacious and comfortable, good tea and coffee making facilities, excellent hot showers and a good solid cooked breakfast if you want it - fruit, cereal and other options available... Deborah bent over backwards to help us out with a last-minute change of plan and we really... More

This place is called a country guest house for a very good reason: THEY GOT IT ALL! Good (bath)room and service, a lounge is included with a TV-set for the moments you are forgetting you are on a holiday. The only thing needed is a spot of good weather. We were out of luck, so we took a trainride......steaming to... More

We stayed for a couple of nights over our wedding anniversary. It's a really nice, comfortable, traditionally decorated guest house. The whole place was exceptionally clean and tidy, and nothing was too much trouble for our lovely host, Deborah. This even extended to her insisting on driving us into Harlech to our restaurant booking when our taxi failed to arrive.... More

We were welcomed by Deborah and offered a pot of tea on arrival. The accomdation was spotless and a beautiful house set in a lovely location. Behind was a hill which was wonderful to ascend in the morning to look over the estuary and to portmerion. A great base from which to see North Wales.

I can only think that Talsarnau is the best equipped village in the country for B&Bs if Gwrach Ynys is not ranked in the top two at present. I can only think it is because it has not had the volume of review that others have had. One thing is for certain: those who have reviewed speak the truth- there... More

We've now stayed at Gwrach Ynys on two occasions and could not find fault on either. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and welcoming and with one of the finest views you will ever see from the hill behind the house. A little bit away from everything but I guess that means equally accessible for everything, so not really an issue. Both... More

If you want a quiet, comfortable and welcoming place to stay that is conveniently situated for the Snowdonia National Park and beautiful coastlines and beaches then you can't go wrong with Gwrach Ynys. The bedrooms are comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are delicious, ample and nicely served. The landlady, Deborah Williams, is delightful and goes out of her way to... More

Received a warm and friendly welcome. The location was for us ideal. The room was of average size, nicely decorated and clean. The ensuite was of a similar standard, the downside was a very noisy extract fan with a long time delay; we overcame this by just turning on the mirror light. The communal areas were also nicely decorated and... More

We're a couple in our mid-thirties and we stayed here for 3 nights early August 2014. It was perfectly located for exploring the area by car, parking up and going for long walks in the hills. Equally for driving the 3 mins to Harlech to savour the glorious beach, journeying a little further round the bay to Portmerion, Porthmadog and... More
