Message Update from Hotel Directors

Dear Trefeddian Guests

Further to the UK governments announcement on Saturday 31st October 2020 of a 'second lockdown' in England we have made a difficult decision to close the Trefeddian a little longer than our usual Winter Break. 

We shall not open on Monday 9th November 2020 after the 'Welsh Firebreak' ends. We shall hibernate the hotel until February 2021 when trading conditions become more certain. I made this decision with sadness and appreciate this is disappointing news for guests looking forward to their stay with us later this year and in January.

I would like to thank you for your patience and understanding in these exceptional circumstances. The good news is the Office will be open 7 days a week from November 9th and any bookings that need to be changed and postponed will be dealt with in chronological order by our friendly reception team.

I would like to thank everyone who has stayed with us since the August re-opening, the support from our loyal guests has been overwhelming. We are really looking forward to helping you plan your 2021 holidays to visit the wonderful Welsh coast and mountains. We need to put behind us the chaos of 2020!

On behalf of us all at the hotel we wish you and your families the best of health in the coming months and hope to see soon in beautiful Aberdyfi.

For all enquiries please contact our Reception team 7 days a week on 01654 767213 or email us on

With Very Best Wishes

Cleanliness & Sanitisation

We are enhancing our already high cleaning standards throughout the hotel. You will notice hand sanitiser stations at various points and we encourage all guests to continually wash and sanitise their hands throughout their stay with us. 

  • Dining tables will have individual hand sanitisers to use during mealtimes.
  • All surfaces, especially those that see regular contact i.e. door handles, lift and tables will be cleaned at every opportunity by our team.
  • Our staff will be trained in a new cleaning regime and everyone coming to work will have their temperature checked on arrival. This includes a mandatory check on their health status.
  • Please use your own bathroom facilities in your room as much as possible during your stay. 

Social Distancing

We are privileged at the Trefeddian Hotel to have plenty of space both inside and outdoors in which to practice social distancing, however we do ask all of our guests to please be conscious of social distancing at all times and to be considerate of others. 

Please try to ensure the advised distance is maintained between yourself and other people, you will also notice the following changes during your stay to keep us all safe; 

  • Ground floor layouts altered to accommodate guests at a safe distance including one way areas.
  • We ask you to please stay to the left as much as you possibly can in corridors and landings and to wait at the top of the stairs to check if others are coming towards you.
  • Face masks are are compulsory in all indoor public areas, except when you are eating or drinking or are medically exempt as per Welsh Government guidelines.
  • Current guidelines are that 2 metres should be used to social distance from one another in Wales and 1 metre in mitigating circumstances, these are circumstances such as chair directions, screens and areas of great ventilation.
  • Glass screens will be in place in reception and the bar area to protect both guests and staff.

Bar & Restaurant

We will rigorously apply the previous mentioned social distancing and cleanliness rules to our bar and restaurant areas. Wherever possible, we will be encouraging guests to drink and enjoy snacks outside, enjoying the fresh air, sunshine and views across the beautiful Cambrian coastline. 

  • Please avoid drinking with people outside of your social group / household for the time being. We may ask some large family groups to separate into more manageable groups for dining, we will of course try to accommodate these tables nearby to one another.
  • Dining tables will be placed at the recommended social distances – we are lucky to have a spacious dining room, which we hope will make you feel more comfortable. Screens may be placed in areas and this may alter the restaurants usual appearance.
  • Breakfast will now be served to you by our staff in an a la carte manner with the removal of the buffet service, as recommended by government guidelines. We thank you for your patience and understanding with breakfast service, we apologise that this may take longer than usual however hope that you will find it a relaxing experience. 


Our enhanced cleaning regime will also be applied to our bedrooms, ensuring rooms are extensively sanitised between guests. 
Further cleaning measures include: 

  • Washing of all laundry above 60 degrees (a temperature proven to kill COVID-19)
  • PPE provided to all of our cleaners and housekeeping staff.
  • Room cleaning will be less frequent than normal, however regular servicing is available on request.
  • Unfortunately, we are not offering guest laundry service at the moment.
  • Use of a fogging machine that emits sanitizing mist over all surfaces and furniture, killing 99.9% of germs will be used by our housekeeping team as necessary.
  • All leaflets, room information, spare pillows and blankets will be removed from the bedrooms until further notice. Extra supplies will be available on request, please ask our housekeeping staff for anything additional you may need.

The Swimming Pool and Spa Bath will re-open on Monday 10th August 2020 to hotel residents only.
