“Faultless ~ what a gem !”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I have tried hard to find fault but I cannot. As a lone traveller I look for comfort and a warm welcome on my return from time spent exploring the hills and valleys with my camera. This is totally fulfilled by Eileen and John ~ which is why I come back.
I searched thoroughly on-line before my first visit and what a gem I found ~ Tan Dinas is beautifully situated in the forest but with easy access to some lovely restaurants in which to pass the evenings.
My rooms have been extremely comfortable with cool sheets on my bed and warm fluffy towels after my showers. With all the little touches that make the experience complete. And there's real milk in my fridge for my real tea. The breakfasts are second to none (thanks John).
Parking is trouble free on the property (always an added bonus).
As I live in quiet countryside myself ~ it's just like being at home but better as I don't have to do the cooking or the washing up.
CHEERS for Tan Dinas !!

For two weekends our Photographic Society took over Tan Dinas completely. We used it as the base for courses in Snowdonia. What a wonderful venue it proved to be! From the moment we arrived, it seemed that our every need was catered for, rooms reorganised to suit us, a late breakfast arranged so that we could go out and 'shoot' the sunrise, etc. The only problem after breakfast was to get people out again, the food was a real delight and the whole atmosphere encouraged everyone to linger and socialise. After a hard day of photography, it was comforting to know that we had a safe haven to return to. Thanks to Eileen and John for two wonderful weekends.

and thanks to you all for staying with us. Our idyllic location in the forest lends itself to photography and our views and stream make a photographers dream and that's before you sample the delights of the mountains and lakes nearby. We are so happy you all enjoyed the workshop, accommodation and Johns breakfast, which is sourced locally and cooked to order to ensure freshness and taste. We do hope you will all come again one day. Thank you for your kind review.

What a wonderful place Tan Dinas is, So many little touches that make you feel truly comfortable from the Towelling slippers , the hot water bottle and spare blanket ( not that they were needed), fluffy soft pure white towels, an abundance of face cloths, quality bathroom essentials, to the stylish and fitting decor of the rooms. Eileen is the Perfect hostess with a very personable approach, making you feel welcome and at home in her home. John the chef whips up a mean and tasty breakfast. All in all the most pleasurable B& B we have stayed in. Reasonably priced, and if you are stuck for what to door where to go Eileen and John will point you in the right direction. Simply perfect in every way.

It was very enjoyable for us to share our home with your Photographic Society as I knew how much pleasure you would get from ' Autumn in Snowdonia' - it's magical. We are so happy you liked our home and we were able to look after you to your satisfaction. Nothing is nicer than a comfy clean bed with little luxuries and extras - makes it special. Thank you for your review.

This was our first venture into North Wales and we could not fault this B&B for its comfort, cleanliness and superb location. Breakfasts were generous with considerable variety for all tastes. Eileen and John couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable and ensuring we didn't miss any of the less well known attractions in the area. Eileen, in particular, was a mine of information providing her own maps and suggested sightseeing tours which definitely added value to the whole experience. We would definitely recommend a stay here and will hopefully be returning ourselves for another visit to Snowdonia!

Room Tip: We were in Willow which had a side garden view - but this was lovely with views into the woodland.

We stayed two nights at Tan Dinas back in February 2013 and really enjoyed every minute. Eileen and John were such fabulous hosts, they were helpful, knowledgeable and made the best b&b breakfasts we've ever had! My highlight was watching all the birds in the garden over breakfast especially the 'like clockwork' visit from the woodpecker! The b&b is perfectly situated for exploring snowdonia and the surrounding area and we found the pub 'The Stables' served really tasty hearty pub food with live music. We Would 100% recommend staying at Tan Dinas to anyone.

By far the most amazing B&B we have ever stayed at and we could not have enjoyed our stay more with John and Eileen.

The location is just idyllic and breath taking and Tan Dinas is the most perfect location if visiting Snowdonia. The house was just perfect and we loved our room and the lounge room and all the facilities available. Spotlessly clean and lovely touches in all aspects of room décor and information to guests.

The breakfast was superb and it was a delight to taste John's cooking. I can honestly say two of the best breakfasts we have ever had.

What makes the stay worthy of even more than 5 stars was John and Eileen who are without doubt the most professional, welcoming and warm hosts you could ever wish for. Chatting with Eileen over breakfast was lovely and she was so generous with her time, advice and support to help you enjoy stay. This couple are just the perfect hosts in a perfect B&B.

We could not have had a better stay and we cant wait to return for another stay at Tan Dinas.
