“Excellent and Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

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 ready for you at breakfast the next morning and locked bike storage. The bedroom are extremely clean and very comfortable, and the breakfast filled you up for the rest of the day.

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 is a font of information about the history of the community and area. We enjoyed their company; they were far too polite to let us know whether we were boring them! If you want a genuinely Welsh welcome in a B&B that is uniquely Betws-y-Coed, this is as good as it gets.

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 plenty on your tea/coffee tray in your room, inclusive some delicious bikkies.
There are plenty of books and maps to look at and borough, but with free Wifi you can do your own research on the Intranet.
The B&B is very central, you can easily walk anywhere and catch the train or bus easily.
If you would like a qualified Mountainleader's tuition, Martin, their brother in law , is your man and at hand too.
What more do you need?

At last a B and B with real people and a relaxed atmosphere
what a lovely welcome...invited into guest lounge, the fire was lit and we were offered a tea and scone and a glass of sherry if we wanted! and that set the tone for the weekend, Fran and Eifion were warn, welcoming, available for a chat and a laugh but without imposing upon us.
Our room was lovely and the ensuite clean and bright. The linen was bright, crisp and clean
The food, we couldn't fault and there was plenty of it.
We loved the warmth and humour of our hosts Fran and Eifion but were sad to miss the concert that Eifion's male voice choir were giving....think we chose the wrong weekend!

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!
