“One of the best bed and breakfasts in Wales!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed at Bryn Holcombe for one night. The welcome was warm and the house had lots of lovely period features throughout. We stayed in the superior room which was at the front of the house. The bed was very large and extremely comfortable. The television and Freeview box made our stay very enjoyable and homely. The bathroom was amazing, free-standing bath and separate shower. A very good selection of towels and soaps. By far more than we expected for the money we paid. It included a breakfast which was lovely! The landlady was incredible, such a lovely lady. Didn't hassle, was just there when we needed her. She was very helpful with directions and had maps on hand!

In my opinion, having a landlady as lovely as her just made our stay more comfortable and secure. I would recommend anyone who is booking, spend the extra £10 to stay in the superior room.

Would go back again, definitely!

Stayed in the Superior room for 1 night. Very comfortable stay, lovely big room with comfy bed. Huge bathroom. Only one thing would have made it better would have been some large bath sheets to go with that nice bath - towels a bit on the small side!

Breakfast was good and service great. Would definitely return.

One of the best B&Bs I’ve ever stayed.

Good sized rooms having nice décor.
Genuine and tasty breakfast. Very clean.
Extremely accommodating and pleasing landlady.

Available private parking just in front of the house.
It is situated in a beautiful and peaceful area, close to Colwyn Bay seafront.

Stayed two nights. The welcome was warm. The room was excellent. the Welsh breakfast was impressive and filling. Parking for car off the road in front of the house. Just watch which way you drive out of the house onto a one-way street! No noise in the night. WiFi available but a little slow.
I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: I don't know about other rooms but mine had a shower cubicle and no bath.

We stayed at Bryn Holcombe for 3 nights (Thur, Fri, Sat) in mid September in the room with the fantastic black & white tiled bathroom (as in the photo gallery linked to the property). Great location & off road parking. Great room with comfortable bed, TV (although there was too much to do in the area to bother watching it), tea & coffee making, and the wonderful bathroom. A deep free standing bath in the centre of the room was fantastic to soak those tired muscles in. Great breakfast - fruit, cereal, cooked breakfast etc. Very friendly and informative host.
Masses to do close by including walking up and down the Great Orme in Llandudno (it was too windy to take the cable car), walking the beach from Colwyn Bay to Old Colwyn and back to Rhos on Sea (for a lovely country style sunday lunch at the pub on the seafront) or walking around the town walls and visiting the castle at Conwy followed by a pint of real ale at the Albion Pub (in Conwy). We went to Llandudno and Conwy by train from Colwyn Bay leaving the car at the B&B. Was a great way to explore and relax.
We found a good variety of pubs in Colwyn Bay - the Toad overlooking the sea front - good for food but best to book - very busy, the Wetherspoons Picture House for a good value meal & real ale or (when we were there) an acoustic blues night at En Gedi (in the Old Imperial Pub opposite Colwyn Bay station). Anglesey and Snowdonia are also within easy reach. Superb.......

We have been in many cities but this time, we avoided staying in London but country traveled by car in a group of four to visit N Wales and Bryn Holcombe was a perfect location to rest for the first night after a long drive. The B&B is just off the main road and is in a very quiet location. The hostess was very hospitable and helpful. We love Wales and the way people here speak. She explained all the local attractions and helped with names of restaurants that we could visit and marked them on a map. We found a great restaurant on the seafront (another review). We also took her advice to visit Conwy castle a 15-min drive away. We discovered a terrific estuary/bay at sunset and took the best pictures of the trip of both the bay and outside the castle. The breakfast was quite fantastic. As regards the room, we had two rooms and had no particular preference. The location was quiet regardless of which way the room was facing. Should a twin bedded room be desirable, and we wished we had two of them, guests will need to book as early as possible. It is possible to visit Llanberis and take the train to the top of Snowdonia using this B&B as a base to travel by car.

Room Tip: Any room is good; for twin-bedded room, book early.

A great B&B a few minutes walk from the centre of town. The decor was tasteful and our room was clean and well looked after. The landord and landlady were very helpful indeed when we asked about some local information. Breakfast was a gut busting cooked full welsh with cereal fruit and muffins if you could fit them in.
I would certainly recommend for a stay in Colwyn Bay.
