Positive Reviews

Quiet location and a well maintained property

Guests were very impressed with the peaceful setting of the guesthouse, in the village of Betws-y-Coed, close to the river and overlooking the hills. They feel that this is the most beautiful part of North Wales. Location is off the main road, hence it is very quiet, yet only two minutes' walk from the town centre. Parking is also not a problem. Guests also liked the rooms in the 19th-century building, each with a distinct character. They were very impressed with the themed rooms, which have amazing views. The rooms were also found to be spotlessly clean.

Outstanding hosts

Guests like the smiling hosts who welcomed them warmly. The tea/coffee and cakes on arrival was a big hit with guests. The care and attention to every detail by the hosts is superb. They are extremely helpful, and their knowledge of the local area was also very good and handy.

Breakfast is exceptional

Guests were happy with the freshly cooked, delicious breakfast with a great selection of cereals and fruits. The packed lunches are reasonably priced and good value for money. Special dietary requirements of guests, like a gluten-free diet, are also catered to.

Negative Reviews

Low water pressure in bathroom

The pressure of water in the bathroom showers is very low, and guests found it inconvenient. They have suggested that an overhaul is necessary with immediate effect.

No other issues reported

So far, no other recent negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this property.
