We have just returned from all too brief first visit to Henllys (the Old Court House). Claire and John could not have been more welcoming, the property is ideally situated for the village with its assorted eateries and pubs, and is a short drive from Snowdon. Our main reason for the visit was to climb Snowdon and John and Claire... More

The owner took all our wet bike gear and hng it up in her kitchen to dry for our continued journey the next day. The room was fantastic, well furnished, warm, very clean... More

My college age daughter & I came from NY to visit Wales for the first time and selected Betws-y-Coed for its close location to the train station, for its scenery, its situation in North Wales. We found the village very nice, so convenient, especially the rope and plank bridge over the Conwy River and especially Conwy Castle, an example of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights over the August bank holiday. Gillian and Mark were very friendly and helpful with tips on places to eat and the weather forecasts. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It was well laid out and very quiet with no road noise. Breakfast was lovely and we enjoyed sitting in the new conservatory watching... More

My husband and i stayed at the Courthouse in June. It was a wonderful stay. Mark and Gillian were lovely hosts. Our room was charming. Very clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the garden and river from our window. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast each morning in a lovely setting overlooking the garden (we loved the porridge!!!). The... More

On arriving at the Courthouse I was impressed with the exterior and ease of parking. On venturing inside it is much smaller than I’d imagined. From photos it looks like the whole building is the hotel when in fact it is 2 semi detached houses. I’m not sure if when it was a courthouse it was like this or if... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Yes the building used to be one but was made up of additions over the years and we sub divided the house about 2 years ago. Having a smaller house has meant we could carry on living and working in Wales since the original house was too big... More
