We enjoyed our visits to Portmeirion Village which was the setting for the 1960s TV series "The Prisoner" and is totally unique. Because we went in November, not all the retail outlets, eating places or exhibitions were open. But we had lunched at the Brasserie at Castell Dreudraeth, located near the entrance to the village. Eating a two or three course meal there then allows free access into the village itself. We also went to Harlech and Cricceith Castles that are not far away and have excellent visitor facilities. The views from the towers/ramparts of the coastline are spectacular and the history of these castles and many others nearby is extremely interesting. Harlech village is also lovely with lots of great shops/cafes.
The town is fine, we used it as a base for the trains to Caernarvon and Blaneau Ffestiniog. As a base Porthmadog is is ideal but we would not wish to stop more than a couple of nights if we did'nt have other places to go. walking around is easy. Pubs appear to be good and welcoming.
Previous visits of over 50 years ago had been just passing through either to Abersoch or closer to Black Rock Sands so I had no real knowledge of the town which has a delightful harbour and boasts some good restaurants. Other towns along the coast also have excellent beaches and interesting centres. Will definitely be back.
It was much improved since my last visit. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants. It is a centre for public transport. There are many locally owned shops. The Ffestiniog railway is a big attraction.
Porthmadog is a lovely town surrounded by beautiful coast and countryside. There are some great pubs, cafes and shops. I would highly recommend the Browsers Bookshop - a good range of titles and art materials at the back. Cobb Records is always worth a visit if you're into music. It was a shame that, for this visit, the Australia pub was closed (unable, apparently, to get enough staff due to Covid) and our favourite cafe, Big Rock Cafe (due to personal/family reasons) so we missed those. Don't miss The Ship pub and Yr Hen Fecws restaurant behind the main street. You must also visit Portmeirion if you're in the area - a truly magical place.
The main attraction is the railway, however there are several excellent coffee shops and restaurants in town. The Australia is an excellent pub that also serves good food and of course excellent Purple Moose Beer on tap.
The Beach Retreat is a beautiful little cottage in the countryside. It is very traditional with lots of original period features and comfortable furnishings. We had a lovely week here as a family of five and were sad to leave at the end of it. You are a short drive (or a longer walk!) from the beach, not far outside Porthmadog and there are loads of things to do and see in the area. We went on the Ffestiniog railway, spent time on the beach, visited Portmeirion and Criccieth and all sorts of other things.
Amazing location and lovely B&B. Room was very comfy and clean. Requested some vegan options for breakfast and the owners went above and beyond to buy and cook us vegan alternatives. Felt like we did not miss out on anything, even bought us vegan butter and vegan bread etc. We cannot wait to visit again as there is so much to do and see in Porthmadog and surrounding area.
An amazing location - setting was truly beautiful and the hotel was stunning. We stayed in house one which had an oriental theme - I can’t praise enough. We can’t wait to go again - romantic and whimsical. It’s a bit of paradise tucked away in north wales! We ate dinner in the castle which was all round perfect and breakfast next morning in the hotel with stunning views!
I remember the Golden Fleece from years back, and the transformation is quite impressive! It has brought a city-vibe to Tremadog, whilst retaining it’s important heritage. Tremadog is perfectly located for exploring the North Wales coast and beautiful beaches. Will be back! Great food, cocktails, breakfast, and comfortable accommodation.
The staff were so helpful .The rooms were clean,excellent shower.The restaurant and had a nice ambiance.and the staff were faultless.Good good from the restaurant and a lovely tasty full Welsh breakfast.Good location for all the amenities of Porthmadog. I look forward to staying again in the future.
An excellent room, quiet with nice views and all the facilities we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and kept us full for most of the day, giving more time to enjoy the surrounding area.
Gorgeous site nestled in a woodland cliff. Little walk and waterfall on site. Stayed in a Bluebell caravan- new and really comfortable . Great base for exploring North Wales.
Breakfast was excellent ! Rooms comfortable and well equipped. Staff were excellent and provided great information about the area and covered all details of the hotel
The location and accommodation was 1st class. We loved the nature walks around the site, with beautiful waterfalls. Great location for Porthmadog and snowdon area.
I liked the fact that place was nice and clean. Also close to Porthmadog which has nice cafes.
Lovely little cottage, everything needed for a short break, walking distance from Porthmadog
