“Cute little B&B, Great location! Good value! Lovely breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2011

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Caernafon Castle. The B&B is on a quiet little cobbled street right in the centre. The hosts were welcoming, and had a lovely cat called Wanted. This is ideal place to stay for a weekend away. The breakfast is really nice and a brilliant choice. We stayed in the small rose room, which was small but had everything we needed and was very cute and comftable! We loved it. We also had a shared bathroom with one other room that was next door but it was very clean so didn't mind at all. Would def stay here again!

Thanks to Mary for our great welcome and true hospitality during the Castles Relay weekend. Glad we booked with you. Ideal for the start of the relay at the Castle.

I stayed with my husband and friend at The Cartref Guest House for 2 nights at the end of May. From the start we loved the location, the look of the house from the street and were greeted very warmly by Mary the owner. Room3, our room was well equipped, very clean with a large en suite and had real character. We slept well on both nights and had a lovely breakfast in the morning.
Mary is very proud of her house and this is very apparent in the way her guests are cared for. I would definately go back again in the future x

We were in Caernarfon for the first time touring. Mary's welcome created a relaxed feel. The room had a large bathroom, comfortable bed and a quiet room. B&B breakfasts can be boringly repetitive but Mary's were delicious, restaurant standard. Stayed 2 nights but could have easily stayed longer.

We really enjo yed our two night stay. When we arrived Mary, our hostess, mentioned that she would be cooking that evening for other guests and would we like to join in. Bottom line is that she is a wonderful cook and we did not find occasion to dine any where else during our stay. On the second day she said that she would like to prepare a traditional Welsh dinner for us that evening, which she did. Did I mention that her full english breakfast was also wonderful. Mary was very helpful and gave us good advice when we asked for it. All in all she should be classified as a Welsh national treasure.

Good convenient location. Generally clean. Breakfast was a surprise ... a variety of options available on the menu to suite your taste! Short walk to the magnificent and impressive Caernarfon Castle, surely a must-see.
