I stayed in this lovely guest house (a 2-minute-walk from the train station) for a few nights in August and I liked it very much. The very friendly hosts (Frances and Eifion) told me a lot about Welsh culture and local attractions. The room was tidy and the bed very comfortable. I enjoyed the delicious breakfast and the positive atmosphere.... More

This is one of 8 places I stayed during a 3-week trip throughout the UK, and is the one I would be most eager to go back to, and would recommend most warmly. The owners are kind and welcoming. The place has a homey and quaint air about it that is quintessential Bed & Breakfast. The food was made with... More

Great B&B, booked in at short notice and was remembered from last year. Very accommodating and friendly. Room had everything we needed and also had a welcome drink and biscuits in the garden. Breakfast was off a good quality and the host on hand to give advice about the local area. Will stay again

If you are thinking of going to the Snowdonia Region of Wales and you need a central location try Betws-y-Coed and stay in the lovely B&B Garth Dderwen. The hosts are so caring and warm, and nothing was too much trouble for them. They have all the facilities for walkers and bikers, a drying room with your gear dry and... More

We stayed for 4 nights last week whilst on a mountain bike trip. The rooms were lovely,clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a hearty affair ( just what we needed for fuel) Frances and her husband (didn't get his name) gave us great info re restaurants etc. All in all a perfect trip.

We had a lovely stay here in January and was made to feel most welcome. The house is very cosy and rooms are very comfortable. Location is perfect - just off the main street. Would recommend this property to anyone.

Garth Dderwen is a beautiful Victorian house. The room was incredible value for money yet cosy and welcoming with good facilities; the food was excellent. Fran and Eifion offered to dry our boots and shoes after an epic day walking on nearby Moel Siabod; they were friendly and informative whilst also respecting our privacy. Eifion is from nearby Blaenau, and... More

I have stayed with Fran and Eifion many times over the last 3 years. It is one of the few places which offer a single room if your budget doesn't stretch to the luxury of a double for single occupation. The breakfast is out of this world and truly, you don't need to eat anything else all day! There is... More

We've just been at this B&B for two days, but i wish we've could stay longer. We were welcomed with some coffee and some welsh cakes. The rooms are tidy, and a bit old fashioned, but that makes it very cosy. Breakfast was lovely and hostess friendly. Had a perfect stay! Again, thank you!
