“Brief Encounter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We have just spent a night in The Boy's Room at The Outbuildings. The setting is remote but beautiful. Bun, the owner, was warm and welcoming and our room was large but cosy, with every attention to detail. Lovely! Breakfast was freshly prepared in front of us, tasty and substantial. Only one minor gripe, it would have been nice to have a kettle/tea tray in the bedroom as there is nowhere at all to get a hot drink, as after all this is a B & B, not a hotel. When we visit again- which we certainly will, the travel kettle will be first in the bag!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review and you have tipped the balance - hooray _ will start doing trays again. So no need to bring your kettle when you visit next! Bun

Just returned from a lovely weekend here. The "Boys Room" was gorgeous - beautifully decorated, large and very comfortable. We had a lovely meal here the first night and afterwards relaxed by the log fire with a drink. The only criticism I would make and for me it is quite an important one - there are no coffee/tea making facilities in the bedrooms. We stay at a lot of B&Bs and I have never come across one that doesn't offer this. You get bottled water in your room, but only for the first night! Luckily we had brought bottled water with us for our walks. I would have given 5 stars but for the lack of refreshments in the room and won't return or recommend to family/friends for this reason.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. You should have had two bottles of water - apologies that you did'nt you should have done. Unless a guest asks we do not put tea trays in the rooms, we do serve tea in the sitting room in the winter and in or outside in the summer between 4.00 and 5.30 - Judith

We have just had a Family weekend here which had been booked for some time.we could not have asked for anywhere better. The accommodation was first class and very tasteful with stunning views over to Snowdon.Joe looked after us as soon as we arrived on the Friday and could not have been more helpful over the weekend.The pink hut is very novel and cosy we had the wood burner going to keep it warm which it was ! One problem is the sat navigations do not pick up the postcode as being this location and the taxi firm got lost trying to find us but this is only a minor point really - just beware if using to get their in the first instance !

Beautiful, as everyone says. Just two issues. We stayed in the Pink Hut. The bed & furnishings were perfect, but no tea/coffee tray or room servicing, bed not made or towels changed. Evening meal, reflected local sourcing etc. but at £30 per head we would have expected something more than ice cream for dessert on 2 nights and having to pay for coffee as an 'extra'.

My husband and I stayed at the Outbuildings for a little Autumn break and were both thoroughly impressed. The staff have the exact right mix of professionalism and friendliness and were able to recommend an excellent restaurant for dinner (Dylan's in Menai Bridge) too. We were greeted by Bun the owner after a days sightseeing and offered a pot of tea and delicious cakes which were all complimentary. I can thoroughly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for couples and we would definitely go back again.

The Outbuildings is the perfect place to stay for everyone. There's plenty of space and privicy combined with wonderful and really friendly staff who know exactly how to make you feel welcome and relaxed. It's lovely to have your own entrance to your room...makes it feel like a little apartment of your very own and each room is really beautifully decorated with cheerful and well balanced use of colour and charm, but with a clean and modern feel. The breakfasts are specially made to order with everything you like taken into account and cooked in front of you in the airy and homely kitchen dining room. Home made, locally sourced food is also available on request for a wonderful evening dining experience in the more formal restaurant. The views of Snowdonia are amazing from all angles. I had a real treat of a stay and the owner, 'Bun', made it very special. Everyone will enjoy a stay here and it is in a wonderful position for exploring the hidden delights of the area...Can't speak highly enough of it. Vanessa, Bath.

Room Tip: All are equally comfortable and beautifully, tastefully, decorated.

My family and I have just spent two nights at the Outbuildings and we loved every minute of it. The grounds are immaculate and the rooms are just beautiful. As we were a party of nine, we occupied every room available and each one was as tastefully decorated and as spotlessly clean as the last. Such a treat. We dined in twice and thoroughly enjoyed our food.
We were also able to have a game of tennis as bats and balls were provided. Great fun on a summer's evening even though we were all hopeless!!
Thank you to all the staff, young and not so young(!) for such a lovely couple of days which we will always remember fondly.
