Positive Reviews


Fantastic views of Criccieth Castle

This was perhaps guest's favourite feature of Min-Y-Gaer. The castle is of course a spectacular site, and guests were happy to have a great view of it right from the dining room when enjoying their eggs and bacon.


Great for motorists

Several guests remarked how easy the guest house was to find. They barely even needed SatNav, since it was on a main road and had decent signage. They also reported that there was ample parking, and were happy they didn't need to struggle to find a spot after a long day touring.


Friendly and welcoming hosts and staff

Again and again guests mentioned what a terrific welcome they received from the hosts. They were also described as friendly and very helpful when it came to offering advice about the local area.

Negative Reviews


Some rooms very small

As with almost any older, and perhaps quirky, property, rooms sold in the same class are not all the same sizes. Min-Y-Gaer does seem to have one or two rooms much smaller than the rest. While it didn't come up often, sometime guests allocated these rooms complain about getting the short end of the stick.


Stairs to climb

The guest house is a three story Victorian building, which of course means that guests with rooms on the top floor will have two flights of stairs to climb. While not a problem for most, some did get a bit weary of climbing them multiple times a day.


Poor Wi-Fi

Guests mentioning the Wi-Fi were typically complaining. It seems it can be a bit temperamental, so guests may need to rely on their cell network's data service.
