“Stayed before - would stay again!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We stayed over and thought that they had made a mistake in the cost - our room per night was £50! Excellent value.

Breakfast was plentiful and the choice extensive - full marks.

Rodger and Mary are great hosts and very quirky (in the nicest way possible).

Definately worth another visit later this year.

And no we are not related to the owners!!

We made a booking for one of our staff, who was working at one of our Clients’ premises in Caernarfon. We received good feedback from our staff member, who would wish to stay at the Cartref the next time she is in Caernarfon. We found them very efficient to deal with and was given a good price. The Cartref has been added to our database of preferred accommodation.

We absolutely loved our stay in this B&B. Rodger and Mary are really welcoming and friendly. The breakfast is awesome and we were invited for a great dinner. The rooms are cosy and nicely decorated. The castle is only a 3 minutes walk.

A lovely room and the best breakfast I have ever had in a B and B! I thought they were joking when they told me what my options were - the eggs benedict set me up for the whole day! We went further into Wales and stayed in a 5 star the next night but honestly, Mary and Roger's was better.

My partner and I are both 30 and found this a delightful guest house. There is a warm regal feel with a excellent service.

The location is fabulous being a stones throw from both the castle and marina.

I would most definatelly recommend this guest house

This is the best b&b I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. Roger and Mary are fantastic hosts and the property is immaculate. The little details make this a really special place to stay, the fresh bottles of mineral water every day and complimentary toiletries are lovely. Delicious breakfasts- I have never stayed at
a b&b witb such a vast choice- from smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to a full Welsh to fresh fruit, Roger and Mary are happy to sort out anything you'd like. This is the perfect base for exploring North Wales, and I'd highly recommend it!!! Thank you for an extremely comfortable week :)
