Booked for a night stay as I needed somewhere close to the centre of town for a reasonable price. I was really only after a bed for the night, but I was treated to a brilliant breakfast, and a host that bent over backward to make sure everything was spot-on. I would definately stay here again. I had all I... More

The room was comfortable (perfect bed), nice and warm, I was not freezing like in some UK guesthouses/hotels who are not very generous with the heating. The breakfast was delicious and beside all, our host make us feel like home. The only problem I could mention, is the lack of dedicated parking space, but you can find some parking on... More

Very warm welcome by Mary, the host, very child friendly place to stay in, great location, easy parking. A quiet street in the middle of town, with all facilities nearby. Would definitely come back, and the region is beautiful.

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...!)
