The Trefeddian Hotel has won Family Hotel and Golfing Hotel awards from the Good Hotel Guide Editor’s Choice 2021.
They add to its long list of accolades, which includes AA Hotel of the Year for Wales in 2018 and the Best Hotel Award at the inaugural Mid Wales Tourism Awards last year.
The 59 bedroom hotel, which has been run by four generations of the Cave family since 1907, appears in the Good Hotel Guide 2021 print edition and website. The hotel was first fully listed in the guide in 2005.
The hotel’s review in the guide states: “It may have a four-star rating, but there is nothing too swanky about this child-friendly, dog-friendly hotel overlooking Cardigan Bay, across the road from dunes, golf links and white-sand beach. It has been in the Cave-Browne-Cave family for more than a century and has a strong following among guide readers.”
Ongoing investment in the hotel’s facilities and infrastructure has included the complete refurbishment of the indoor swimming pool, spa bath, lounges and dining room and the construction of two luxury self-catering units in the grounds.
Blessed with a stunning location, The Trefeddian enjoys panoramic views over Cardigan Bay and four miles of golden, sandy beach. Located in the Snowdonia National Park and UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere Reserve, the hotel is ideally placed for golfing and activity breaks as it overlooks a links golf course and is within a short drive of Coed-y-Brenin Mountain Bike Centre.
Located ‘Where the mountains meet the sea’, the hotel combines the weight of tradition and family history with freshness and modernity, providing all the comforts needed for a relaxing getaway.

The awards are a great reflection on the wonderful team here at Trefeddian Hotel. We are very proud to have been included in the guide for many years and we pride ourselves on ‘the guest always comes first’. Trading conditions have been very difficult this year but returning guests have said that they feel very comfortable and safe with the measures we have taken and still enjoyed the same Trefeddian experience.”
Coes Faen Spa Lodge in Barmouth also won a highly prestigious award. The Cesar Award is given to the ten best hotels of the year and is considered as the Oscars of hotel keeping. The innovative, eco-friendly hotel sits on the edge of Snowdonia and its 30 acres of gardens overlook the Mawddach estuary.
