Just had a fantastic stay with my family. The owner made us welcome especially with having a child. The food was excellent, the evening meal and breakfast. We are recommending this hotel to others and also will return. Thank you.

About
Description
The Minffordd Hotel in Talyllyn valley, Mid Wales is set in probably the most breathtaking scenery in Britain and is literally situated at the base of the Cader Idris with the summit being 1 1/2 miles NW of More the hotel, the start of the Minffordd path is 5 mins away. The original parts of the building are over 400 years old so as you Would expect the walls are very thick and there are plenty of originally features such as the original wood beams which can be seen throughout the building and our log fire which is a key feature during the winter months.

I believe the present owners have been there a few years. I would not refer to him as being"grumpy" but he has a peculiar sense of humour.
