We stayed at Gwesty Gwernan for three delightful days. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable; the food at breakfast and dinner was terrific; and the hosts were great: friendly, thoughtful, and endlessly helpful. We'll return - often, I hope.

Such a nice place, what a shame the expectation of a well earnt pint after coming down off the hills is met with such a dour-faced welcome. Probably one of the grumpiest landlords in Wales. Good beer though.
