“Convenient location in North Wales”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

This B&B is run by a husband and wife team, Stuart & Emma Charlton. Stuart is the cook and Emma the welcomer.
The place is a short walk from the center of Betws-y-Coed, a touristy town, adjoining a sheep pasture, across a field and over a suspension bridge. There isn't much to do in the town itself, but you can get to other touristic sites to the north and west easily enough, if you don't mind driving on the narrow roads with tall stone walls on both sides of the road, right up to the edge of the pavement.
If you come to the Aberconwy House from the USA, make sure you bring along a physical adaptor that will convert the three-prong UK plug to the US standard.
The one issue that we had with the B&B was their restrictive breakfast hours. Breakfast was served only from 8:30 to 9AM, which meant that we got a late start for any tourism. Also, the breakfast choices were the same every day, which can get boring when you are there for more than a day or two.

Just a couple of points, our breakfast times usually suit most guests. We do accommodate guests requiring earlier breakfasts, as I recall, the above guests were welcomed into the breakfast rooms just after 8am each morning.
With regard to our breakfast menu, we offer the traditional cooked breakfast, including eggs cooked how you like, ie. scrambled, fried or poached. We also offer boiled eggs with soldiers and scrambled eggs with smoked salmon. This is along side a choice of cereals, grapefruit and yoghurts. Again, we find that this tends to be more than enough choice for a day or two for most guests.
Its that old adage again, you can please all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but rarely all of the people all of the time!

Stayed at the Aberconwy July 26th -29th 2013 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We received a very warm welcome from the owners Emma & Stuart. Excellent onsite car parking managed by the owners. Breakfast absolutely superb, rooms spotlessly clean, comfy beds. Excellent background music over breakfast every morning. Very frendly staff. What more could you want? Emma & Stuart have an excellent sense of humour, nothing was too much trouble during our stay. Looking forward to returning next year or sooner if we can manage it!
Keep up the good work.

Betws-y-Coed is a lovely 5/10 minute walk away,along a path and over a suspension bridge.The view from our top floor window was magnificent.Room was comfy and clean.Add to this a delicious breakfast and friendly host and staff,what more could you want.We shall be going back again as soon as we can.

My husband and I stayed at Aberconwy House for 1 night in October 2012. It is an exceptional B&B - we wish we would have planned to stay longer!

The house is located just outside of Betws-y-Coed. Each room has huge windows that allows for a fabulous view over the countryside. We stayed in Room 5 and had no complaints. The suite was clean, quiet, and comfortable. There was a nice sitting area beside the windows. The room is equipped with a kettle and comes with coffee/tea/hot chocolate/snacks.

It was a short walk and scenic walk from Aberconwy House to Betws-y-Coed. The owners have umbrellas that you can borrow for the walk and will provide you with directions and recommendations for a dinner restaurant.

Breakfast was delicious - we were given a choice of 3 different options the night before. Pat, our server, was very friendly and helpful, as was Stuart (the owner).

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Aberconwy House to anyone visiting the Snowdonia area. We hope to return in the near future!

Room Tip: Room 5 has great views over the countryside

Recently stayed at Aberconwy House, Betws-y-Coed. This B&B is very well appointed with quality furnishing throughout. Emma prepared a perfectly cooked breakfast, the best I have ever had. She also looked very professional in a long white apron giving a very fresh appeal to the experience.

Room Tip: Emma offers rooms with a view at the front for £10. extra.

'Everything about our three night stay was perfect. A lovely, spacious room with a magnificent bed, and a superb view of the valley. The breakfast was top quality with a good choice including vegetarian. The standard of excellence was matched by the friendly helpful service of our hosts. It was so good we are already making plans for a return visit.

We have just enjoyed an excellent stay for four nights. Beautiful, immaculate accommodation with fabulous food and breath taking views. Stuart, Emma and the children were extremely welcoming, kind and friendly hosts which made or time even more pleasant and memorable! We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend to others.
