“A great location”
Reviewed November 1, 2008

The Caer Menai guest house is in an excellent location.
We stayed there at the end of July.Unfortunately the guest house was undergoing renovations at this time which meant that early in the morning we heard the workers outside on the scaffolding.
This in actual fact spoilt our stay there.
The owners were pleasant enough, however on the day of our departure I asked if we could keep our suitcase downstairs in the lobby[as we were getting an evening train home] only to be told that we couldn't it wasn't convenient,I think that was really mean and not what one would expect .
We won't go back there again.

A very warm welcome on the phone and in person, John even made space for my car!

Room was very nice, with a nice view. Breakfast was brilliant.

Everythign was excellent, however, we stayed in room 5, and the shower was very very fussy between hot/cold.

Thanks

Stayed June 2008

Fantastic location right inside the city walls within stone's throw from the castle. Very friendly hosts with really yummy breakfasts. Clean & comfy rooms.

Pretty place, GREAT location, good food, not-so-nice hosts. While I realize that we are guests in someone's home, we felt like we were putting them out the whole time.

Excellent on all counts: location, friendliness, good food.
Our family of 5 (with teens) loved this place and really felt like we were "right there" as located within the walled city.

Caer Menai Guest House is located inside castle walls. Parking is diificult along narrow quiet street, but free parking is available one block down from B&B at marina. Parking lot has security cameras.
Walking distant to castle and marina promenade. Be sure to watch the sunset from the promenade.
Host John and hostess Sandy are fantastic owners with quiet and friendly loving dog Kody. Don't miss Kody.
We had the family room for three (room No. 4). Fresh smelling room, nicely decorated, plenty of room, plenty of towels, and comfortable single and double beds.
Bathroom was spacious with good water pressure and temperature. Can tell owner takes pride with their B&B.

Minus: Not enough rope hooks to hang wet towels. Small tv, but typical in England with limited channels. Forgot if they got internet connection or not.
Would return at a heart beat. Prettiest B&B on the on the block.

Thanks John, Sandy and Kody!
