Penhelig Arms North Wales

“A picturesque waterfront hotel in the heart of Aberdovey, Gwynedd. The rooms marry original features with modern conveniences and wonderful sea views. There is a quaint on site bar with a cosy fireplace, and a restaurant serving locally sourced Welsh produce. Utterly charming.”

“This friendly hotel has much going for it, a terrific location on the waterfront with views of sea and mountains; an excellent restaurant; 15 cool, pale bedrooms; and the fact it keeps winning awards. Rooms are divided between the hotel, a building above and a cosy cottage. In summer, take a drink outside from the wood-panelled Fisherman’s Bar and watch the sailing boats go by.”

They say

“The Penhelig Arms, the small hotel with a big reputation at the mouth of the Dovey estuary in Aberdovey.
This 5-Star waterside inn dates back to 1870 and offers spectacular views over the tidal Dyfi estuary. In the summer months the Penhelig’s own outside seating area opposite, close to the sea wall, is the place to enjoy fine views and sunsets – or just relax, watching the tide going out. Great food is served in the Fisherman’s Bar or waterfront Restaurant and the brasserie-style menu is strong on fresh fish, backed up by Welsh beef and lamb.
The Penhelig’s rooms are good too, in particular the spacious Bodhelig suites with enormous bathrooms, designated parking spaces and personal patios or balconies; and Penhelig House – on two levels with two bath/shower rooms, private patio and designated parking space. Both are ideal for that very special occasion.
In winter a real log fire welcomes all to the wood-panelled Fisherman’s Bar – the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hard day’s fishing, golf, walking or sightseeing.”
