  • "We have just returned from the “lookout” and we absolutely loved it."

    The lodge was spotless and I’m fussy with cleanliness, it was comfy and cosy and there were nice touches such as blankets and cool bags for us to borrow. The beds were comfy. The view was unbelievable, I could sit and look for hours. Aberdyfi is a lovely town with a beach, crabbing area, little shops and yummy fish and chips. We drove to nearby Tywyn for the big shop which took 5 mins. I would recommend this property to anyone. Great for walks, water sports, beach days and waterfalls. Close to Snowdonia National Park but it took 2 hours to get to the Llanberis path of Snowdon. We did it but it was a very long day. I will definitely stay again. Thank you for having us.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Look Out and can’t wait to go again."

    The property was well thought out and nicely furnished, really comfy bedrooms and lovely shower. Amazing views which changed daily with the clouds coming and going and lovely big windows. Everything was clean and well maintained too. The village of Aberdyfi is lovely with a great beach, crabbing for the kids and enough restaurants, bars and takeaways to keep us all fed. Really lovely stay and can’t recommend it enough.

  • "Great accommodation and location."

    Hot water failed on day before our last stay, but with one call had someone around within an hour and was fixed by our return from our excursion. My recommendation. Is to have separate bins or reference to separating waist for the bin as it would then help to maintain the fantastic initiative of the central waist removal where waist products are separated. Please note this is a very minor observation the accommodation, Location and service was on point. Thank you.
