This is a wonderfully well located B&B just inside the town walls near the castle. The rooms are very comfortable with new bathrooms. Everything is spick and span and every attention has been made to make guests welcome and comfortable. There are some good pubs and restaurants in the adjoining streets and the waterfront is very close with the Victoria... More

My husband and I booked a last minute get away so we hadn't read the reviews before booking. We arrived a little later than we expected to but Roger seeing us pull up outside quickly took our bag while my husband looked for a parking space which happened to be in the same street no more than 50 feet from...

This great little guest house lies within the old walls of Caernarfon Castle. The hosts are very friendly and the breakfasts are superb with a great menu selection. Walk short distances to many dinner venues and a great pub fronting on the water. Recommend booking directly with the Guest House.

Location is very central within the city walls. The street it is on is too narrow to be able to stop and off load luggage - so better if you are travelling fairly light. We stayed in room 3 which is an ensuite double at the front of the house. Very tastefully decorated and large bright bathroom. You are given... More

Spent 2 nights at this guesthouse. Had a wonderfully warm welcome from Roger and Mary. Room 3 (an en suite double) in which we stayed could not have been better...clean, bright, spacious and very comfortable. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and bottled water provided in room along with a few small complimentary toiletries. Breakfast on both mornings (cooked by Mary)... More

We booked for a single one night stay and on reading reviews had high expectations. We weren't disappointed...we received a warm personal welcome from Mary and Roger. Our room,( we had read that rooms were small ) although not huge, was more than adequate for our requirements - I mean how big do people expect rooms to be?? I imagine... More

We stayed in Caernarfon as we were attending a wedding nearby. We arrived earlier than first check in, as the wedding started at 3pm. This was no trouble for the owner who showed us to our room and told us what he could do for breakfast - we're both vegan! Breakfast was amazing. We normally have to take our own... More
