5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was my first visit, but my husband has been before. Delightful little B&B, with a wonderful garden for the kids to explore. I really liked the little upstairs conservatory, where the family could meet on an evening. Breakfast was great, the hosts were very friendly. Carbon free too! I recommend a visit to the café over the road. It's... More

This is my second visit here, and it won't be my last. This time I was sharing a twin room with my mother while my uncle had his own single room. The same warm welcome and warm building awaits, though I didn't get as much chance to talk to John as last time because I was busy. The breakfast remains... More

Wonderful sleep. The beds are lovely, and the breakfast is truly device and delicious. The owners are really friendly. Also, the view of the suriunding hills, mountains, and the passing steam train, make the place a truly one of a kind welsh paradise. Well worth staying there, to get way for some peace and relaxation in North Wales.

Initially selected because of the electric vehicle charge points to recharge my car and it's convenience for Snowdonia, was quickly won over by the infectious enthusiasm of John and Ceilia for their eco-centric home. John kindly gave my son and I a short walking tour of the local area, describing its long history of innovation and development, along with a... More

I reviewed Bryn Elltyd in 2014 and have just returned from another visit/s. I like the Eco friendly aspect of the B&B and everything is great from the rooms to the breakfast, views, and friendly hosts. If you have an electric car - there are charge points there for that ! Breakfast is huge & I'm pretty sure you could... More

My family & I really love staying at Bryn Elltyd, where Celia & John Whitehead are wonderful hosts. The Guest House is always warm & cosy, the shower water always hot, breakfasts including home-made bread always excellent. The bedrooms are comfortable, & all enjoy really dramatic views This is the perfect centre for exploring the fascinating remains of the Slate... More

This guest house is in a spectacular location and is run by people who are fascinating to talk to and who run a very comfortable and efficient b&b. the breakfast is also very good. The ecological aspect adds an extra dimension which is very informative, and the price is in the lowest orange (£45 for me for the night)

It feels hard to give only a 2 for this guest house but there is some I feel is vital that attention is given to. This is the horendous smell of damp/mould/ mildew in our outside room. It was very strong, worst near the corner of the bedroom where I slept so much so that it woke me a few... More

We received a warm welcome from John and Ceilia and enjoyed our stay in this stunning part of North Wales. The property is ideally situated for a large variety of outdoor activities including walks, bike rides, etc. with zip lines and other high adrenaline activities just north of Blaenau Ffestiniog (walkable). The breakfast was superb with vegetarians well catered for.... More

Great location - it's actually by a power station but don't let that put you off - it's a hydro one and not visible from the house. Loved the views and it has an amazing garden on a hillside where you can just sit, drink wine and look at the views and the nearby steam train. John and Celia couldn't... More
