Firstly I must say that the view that some reviewers held that the breakfast was not good or not enough is sad as this was the best and most comprehensive breakfast I had on my 4 weeks (!) around the UK - mostly staying in B&B's - plenty of options and very lovingly presented. The location right behind the old... More

Well situated bed and breakfast in Caernarfon - bed comfortable but no cooked breakfast - too many fruits and fish - simple cooked eggs and bacon would be much nicer and more appreciated. We were very welcomed by the proprieter.

Excellent location in the heart of Caernarvon for local sightseeing and as a base for Snowdonia. The rooms were very clean and we slept well. Parking problems were not experienced maybe because we stayed midweek in early May

Our room was rather small and the shower room a bit cramped. Shower only just hot enough. Breakfast is continental style with the only cooked option being the eggs. However, It the breakfast was good and service very friendly and helpful. Parking is free 20 metres away from 6pm until 10am . Otherwise, it is pay and display further on.

Breakfast was a superb buffet with home cooked ham (delicious) and selection of eggs, fruits, cheeses and more washed down with fresh coffee. Set us up well for... More

Lovely room with comfy bed & ensuite bath. Really good breakfast menu - the smoked salmon & scrambled eggs were delicious! Mary was very welcoming and helpful, with advice about learning welsh and local info. Only slight downside was that the plumbing was a bit noisy, but otherwise we had a very nice stay. Great central yet quiet location in... More
