Overview

Set in 20 acres of grounds and woodland, the impressive Penmaenuchaf Hall is situated at the end of a long winding drive. The Greystone building was built in 1860 and is in a beautiful spot overlooking the River Mawddach, in the heart of Snowdonia National Park.

Coed y Brenin Forest Park is only a 10-minute drive and is home to a number of mountain bike and hiking trails. Anglers can fish for sea trout in 13 miles of the River Mawddach and the market town of Dolgellau is nearby.

The AA Hotel Guide describes the hotel as a "handsome Victorian pile" with "magnificient views" and it has been given a VisitWales Gold Award. The restaurant has an AA Rosette and is listed in The Michelin Guide. There is a set and à la carte menus available, featuring dishes such as foie gras crème brulée with madeira jelly, roasted fillet of organic pork with black pudding and roasted apple, seared monkfish with roasted chicory and confit peppers. Many of the herbs and vegetables are grown on site and the wine list is excellent.

The hotel is full of little period details -- expect a smattering of antiques, log fires, comfy sofas – and the bedrooms are traditional in décor. Wi-Fi is free throughout and there are bathrobes and tea- and coffee-making facilities provided. Some have small balconies and views over the idyllic grounds, and some are dog friendly (although dogs are not permitted in the rest of the hotel). There are no lifts so ask for a room on the ground floor if you have any mobility requirements. 

From the press:
  • "Strikingly beautiful grounds" -- The Guardian

  • "A welcoming country-house hotel with beautiful gardens and big views – open fires, panelled walls and good food wait within" -- Sawdays

  • "Penmaenuchaf's all-encompassing comfort has you captive from the get-go" -- Condé Nast Johansens

Everything! The staff, the way the hotel was furnished and decorated, the artwork and lighting, the gardens and surrounding area, the wine and the afternoon teas (with the most gorgeous scones with cream and jam and lovely hot tea). Perfect!

The only down- side was that we are both vegetarians and the meal choices for dinner were poor. Having said that, the meals we did have were very tasty. My partner especially likes carbs in his meals ( potatoes, pasta, bread, pizza ) with lots of eggs and cheese.

Beautiful setting and clean.
Other Comments
The food was a joke. It was basically decided for you what you were allowed to eat. No potatoes of any kind! Child portions. Small piece of cod with 3 radishes and 2 chard leaves and a piece of swede. Breakfast would have fitted on a saucer with room to spare. Fried bread was the size of a credit card. We went to bed hungry. We have travelled extensively in th UK and abroad and never experienced this. There were 3 choices on the set menu. No side orders. I can’t understand how some people can call the food amazing.
