my husband arranged this stay as a treat for my birthday. we were greeted at the door by Mrs. Middleton whose warmth and friendliness instantly put us at ease.the house in a lovely position 5 mins from the sea overlooked by ancient hills used to be a sea captains house and is furnished in the old Welsh tradition. our bed was so comfy ,and little touches ,like home made biscuits with tea and coffee in our room along with the warm home made bread and cakes and homemade jams which accompanied the cooked breakfast, were just a fraction of the hospitality we were shown. Mr. Middleton also went out of his way to help us with bus and train times. we were given lots of helpful advice,where to eat ,The Ship does a lovely rib eye steak ,if a bit expensive,it couldnt be bettered .the coastal path makes for a lovely walk punctuated by benches all the way with beautiful views. everyone was so friendly and helpful .the bus drivers particularly so.very obliging.this trip was like going back in time as things used to be when everyone had values. i cant wait to go back again.

We stayed only one night but would have been very happy to stay for longer.

The rooms, whilst they may be a little old fashioned, are comfortable and clean. What more can one ask of a very reasonably priced B & B. Outside is a beautiful garden complete with Veg plot to provide for the kitchen. The surroundings are peaceful and beautiful.

The breakfast is actually a five star rating in anybody's book. Fruit salad and Yoghurt to start followed by the full hit or any combination of the usual items. Grilled (not fried) and with poached eggs. A selection of wonderful home made breads and pastries (at least 5 sorts) and a huge selection of home made preserves and marmalades. A large pot of good coffee and an equally large pot of tea provided. Also provided bags to take the remainder of the breads home !!! We were so very impressed and would recommend this great welcoming place to anybody !!

This was our very first visit. The rooms are exceptionally clean and pretty. Ann having been professionally trained is an excellent cook and cooks mostly organic and homemade/homegrown foods. Her homemade sweet orange marmalade is to kill for. Where else would you find a friendly enough hotel/guest house to offer to store your oil paintings, till you went home? Ann and David did. They now call their potting shed the gallery. They are so frinedly and kind. We have had a nine day stay and have enjoyed every minute of it, we have felt so comfortable and relaxed in such a gorgeous house. Real value for money too. Excellent homemade cooking - to die for. We will definitely be going again. This kind of service makes me feel proud to be British and beats anything abroad, with miles of unspoilt beaches, fuscia hedges and honeysuckle lanes. A brilliant holiday.

My wife and I booked into Llys Olwen for one night not realising what a gem we'd discovered.

It's true that the accomodation isn't en suite, but we already knew that, and the shared toilets and shower rooms were conveniently close and spotlessly clean. We had a wash basin on our bedroom, which was handy when we wanted to make tea or coffee.

Whilst the bedroom seemed cramped when we first walked in, this was because it was set out as a family room, with both a double bed and a single; we soon adapted the single bed for use as a sofa. The room was newly furnished, very comfortable, and once again spotlessly clean - after failing to find any dust or dirt anywhere else I checked the top of the wardrobe, but even that had been recently dusted.

Breakfast was superb: whatever you do, don't miss the dried fruit salad with honey yoghurt! After that I couldn't manage a full English, but my egg and bacon were cooked to perfection. There was a basket on every table with a varying selection of rolls and pastries - all freshly baked on the premises, and so good that we asked if we could take some with us on the day of our departure (the answer was yes, provided that we gave a donation to the Air Ambulance). The jams and the five (yes, 5) different marmalades on the table were also homemade.

It's Ann and David Middleton, the owners, who make Llys Olwen so special. Having spent the previous night at a B&B we've been visiting for 16 years the last thing we expected was to feel equally welcome on our first visit to Llys Olwen - yet amazingly we did. We were so happy that we could rearange our itinerary and stay an extra night (this was made easier by the free Wi-Fi, one of many unexpected extras).

Morfa Nefyn may be in the middle of nowhere, but it's a beautiful location within easy striking distance of Caernarfon, Porthmadog, and Portmeirion. Well worth a detour, especially when there's such a warm welcome waiting at Llys Olwen!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Llys Olwen, in the delightful village of Morfa Nefyn.
It has been run by the same family for many years; I found it to be extremely clean, comfortable, and friendly; above all I felt at home from the moment that I arrived to the moment that I left.
Llys Olwen is situated in an enviable location; only a few minutes walk from the beach, and stunning cliff-top walks.
I consider that the standard offered at Llys Olwen was excellent, and that it represented very good value.
I very much hope to return there.

Just come back from Llys Olwen and loved it. It's a classic B&B, super friendly welcome, immensely helpful and considerate hosts, great food, fantastic value. It's within striking distance of beautiful coastline and beaches (like Whistling Sands).
