What a lovely guesthouse and home. My husband and I stayed there last night and I cannot fault the service and welcome we received upon our arrival and throughout our stay. The room was lovely and had everything you could wish for. Breakfast was lovely with an excellent selection of cereals and cooked breakfasts. The poached eggs were the most... More

An absolute pleasure to stay and this superb B and B. Our room was fabulous, clean, bright and overlooked the sea and Castle. Breakfasts are scrummy and set you up for the day. So looking forward to go back again.

This lovely B&B really lived up to its excellent reviews. I had a wonderfully homely, comfortable and clean room, with a fab view. Everything about breakfast was excellent especially the yogurt and fresh fruit which you often don't find. Bridget was a lovely welcoming host and my fellow guests were also very nice and friendly people. The wifi was excellent.... More

We spent one night at this B&B in Harlech on our way through Snowdonia. After negotiating the tight parking at the front of the house, we were shown to our room (#3) facing the back of the house. Breakfast is scheduled every 15 minutes from 8:00 am and we were assigned 8:15 which seemed to be the only time left.... More
