Stayed for one night this week. Boked two rooms for two couples. Both clean and nicely appointed. Had a very good nights sleep and excellent breakfast. Many thanks to Mary for being such a friendly host.

Lovely room with comfy bed & ensuite bath. Really good breakfast menu - the smoked salmon & scrambled eggs were delicious! Mary was very welcoming and helpful, with advice about learning welsh and local info. Only slight downside was that the plumbing was a bit noisy, but otherwise we had a very nice stay. Great central yet quiet location in... More

This would have been the perfect stay if our bed was better; but it was so soft that we kept sinking in the middle, and did not get much rest as a result. The rest was excellent, but a bed is essential in a 'Bed and Breakfast'!

A lovely home in an excellent location for walking about Caernarfon's main attractions. Mary, the owner, is warm, welcoming and accommodating and her home is very comfortable in every way. I enjoyed a lovely bedroom with super comfy bed, delicious breakfast served in a relaxing manner. I wish my vacation time would have allowed me to stay longer!

This is a lovely guest house, very clean, comfortable and welcoming, breakfast showed great attention to detail with high quality ingredients and good fresh coffee - the homemade scotch pancakes with fresh berries were a delight for our god-daughter, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The property is a short walk from the castle and the pubs and... More

Mary was one of the nicest people we met- very real, honest and great to talk to. She even taught us a little of the Welch language, even though she is not Welch She adds all the little touches to her beautifully decorated rooms…fresh flowers, etc. She is the perfect host….present yet not intrusive. Truly one of the nicest stays... More

As with anything booked over the web there is always trepidation about what you will find when you turn up. No need to worry here - lovely rooms, friendly landlady, easy parking nearby - definitely recommend.

Good clean accommodation very near to castle and local amenities. Hosts helped by allowing us to store luggage during the day. Breakfast was massive and tasted good. Had to park a little walk away but bearing in mind it's an ancient walled town this is no problem.

We truly enjoyed our night at Cartref : a very nice and cosy B&B, a great breakfast (thank you again for the vegan sausages !) and a warmful welcome from Mary. We know where to stay in Caernarfon now !

From the moment I walked in I was made welcome. I dropped my luggage off early and went on to explore the castle. On returning I got to know the staff a bit more and told Annie about a bad experience at another place I had stayed at. I went out for tea and didn't think much more about this.... More
