Breakfasts were lovely with lots of choice to suit both my father (86) and myself. We took two single rooms at the top of the house and found them clean, tidy and well stocked. The stairs however were very steep so the middle floor is better if you are not so fit. Plenty of clean towels and the nice touch... More

Arrived late but managed to find a room here and happy we did. My husband and I really enjoyed the breakfast, was a large choice of fresh tasty options, hard to choose what to go for! Nothing was too much trouble for the lovely owner Mary. She made homemade veggie sausages to go with my veggie all day breakfast and... More

A very nicely run b&b. Good breakfast, clean and comfortable rooms. Perfect location within the city walls. Parking is either in the road outside or a nearby car park and did not prove to be a problem. Will be first choice when we stay in Caernarfon again!

We have just returned from Cartref after staying for 3 nights with our grand-daughter. Nothing was too much trouble for Mary and she made our grand-daughter feel special from start to finish. Our family room was tastefully decorated and spotless. Breakfasts were of consistently high quality and cooked to order. One of the reasons for choosing Cartref apart from location... More

Dear Mary thank you so much for your help und support and for a fantastic breakfast. Next time we will make sure to book in advance so that there are 'vacancies'...! We can only recommend this nice little place to other visitors. Lots of love from Germany Martina und Petra (the girls that arrived when everyting was already booked...!)

The guest house is literally a minute walk from the castle. Perfect location, clean, quiet and nicely decorated rooms, great and attentive hospitality and delicious breakfast. I was really pleased with everything.

We had a wonderful stay for two nights at Cartref. Mary was incredibly friendly, helpful, and generous, especially with our 3-year-old - even going so far as to give him the ice-cream she had just bought for herself, because the ice-cream shops had just closed and he was begging us for one. She really went out of her way to... More

I stayed here for two nights in a family group taking 2 rooms. Things started promisingly enough with a simple check in and getting our room keys. The room looked nice enough, the bathroom was less so. The towel rail was coming off the wall and a shelf above the sink was loose so anything that was put on it... More

Oh! Dear, Dear. What a dissapointing review and I feel, a little less than generous and not helpful for the experience of any future guests.. Mmm. The bathroom. I did point out that the previous guests had loosened the towel rail and apologised as I was waiting for someone to mend it. And, 'Mia culpa' the shelf is loose and... More
