We arrived here after a long day of traveling and received a warm greeting upon our arrival. They provided a delicious home-baked meal for our group of 38 and allowed us to have access to their amazing coffee machine so that we could enjoy some after-dinner refreshment. They have a pool table and piano just off the kitchen, a full... More

A warm welcome greeted us when we arrived. This is a very comfortable family run place. They make you feel very welcome and have lots of facilities that other places don't - Bar, Pool table, TV Lounge. We stayed in room 9 which is at the top of the B&B and faces the main road. It was quiet and virtually... More

It's rewarding for us to read such lovely reviews. A lot of effort goes into providing those facilities and service. It's great when they are appreciated in such a manner. Thank you so much and hope we will see you again. Room 9 incidentally though small is truly beautiful in a full moonlight through the skylight :-) More

Thank you for your review. I think this is the only room where the hair-dryer is on the opposite wall to the dressing table. We will have another look at it when the electrician is available or maybe we can move the dressing table? Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we will see you again. More

Apart from the old town and one of the best Castles in the UK, Caenarfon (Carnarvon) in Wales does not have a look going for it. We stayed at the Menai Bank for 2 nights before boarding the ferry at Holyhead and heading to Ireland. Like a lot of these style of hotel in the UK it is off the... More

We chose the B&B for the view of the water and the bay window in our double room provided exactly that. We knew it was facing a roadway, but if you sit back in the comfortable chairs, you can enjoy the sunset. Patrick is a wonderful host from welcome to departure with a sense of humour that our teenage boys... More

We chose to stay at this hotel for one night as it was conveniently located on the Welsh Coastal Path. The online booking process was easy. The hotel owner, Patrick, was welcoming and helpful. We were shown where the communal kitchen was where you could make your own breakfast. The fridge had individual room baskets in so you can keep... More

Stayed for business purposes, located within easy reach of local town and supermarkets, accomodation although dated is clean an comfortable and the staff were wonderful and accomodating. My room was a twin and on a slant!! However bed was comfy although the pillows were too hard for my liking, bathroom was basic and clean.

We wish we could have stayed longer. Very central location in terms of Caernarfon (we could walk to everything in this town) as well as North Wales.
