My boyfriend and I booked two nights in Ty Blaid in the slightly larger room 1. The B+B is situated in a little town called Penmachno, slightly off the beaten track from Betws - y - Coed. We arrived at dusk on the Friday and were met with a warm welcome from Antonia who showed us around the dining room, sitting room and up to our bedroom. We were given a key to the guest entrance which is separate to the main house so coming and going was without disturbing the main house. As we were the only guests, it was like having your own apartment which was great. The decor is modern but homely and immaculately clean. We were asked to remove shoes as the surrounding environment is quite muddy (Snowdonia national park!!) but were provided with slippers which was a lovely touch. There were books, games and guides available in the sitting room for use whilst staying there and beverage facilities avaliable 24/7.
The bedroom was wonderful. The views were spectacular and the finishing touches were subtle yet very apparent and contributed to a high class stay. The bed was huge, coffee facilities varied, bathroom very modern with a fabulous shower, complimentary toiletries and lovely bathrobes and towels. There was also a flat screen tv with Sky which helped my boyfriend feed his football addiction!
The breakfast needs a special mention. Antonia asked us to peruse the menu the night before and write down our choices with a time for the next morning. There were eight choices in all and of the two we sampled, they were fantastic. Alongside the fresh fruit salad,toast, cereal, preserves, honey, yoghurt, tea and orange juice (with juicy bits!) we were set up for the day to go walking and sight seeing.
The surrounding village is very quiet with little happening, if you were to stay here, any nightlife (pubs and eateries) would involve a taxi or drive into Betws - y - Coed which is four miles. We found our environment so lovely that after a busy day, we grabbed a bite to eat and then came back to the B+B and had a glass of wine before bed. The surrounding area has lots of scenic walks and activities to keep you occupied.
All in all we had a lovely weekend.It was peaceful and relaxing and we would recommend to anyone who is looking to get away to peaceful surroundings with a bit of luxury.Look out for the napkin rings - they are fantastic!!!
