“Excellent overnight stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

I recently had a very comfortable overnight stay at Bryn Bella and was made very welcome indeed by Mark and Joan. My room was very comfortable and had everything I should require. I watched the many birds feeding outside the dining room as I eat a great hearty breakfast the next morning. Mark and Joan were very helpful to ensure that I met with my walking companions next day at a nearby hotel.

We visited Bryn Bella with some friends from America. They were enchanted by the house, its decor and wonderful Port Meirion pottery which is to be found in each room. The weather was rather cold and windy but we found a warm welcome in the guest lounge during the evening. The breakfast was delicious. Hope to visit again sometime.

You feel at home as soon as you walk through the door and are greeted by the friendly and dynamic hosts of this lovely guest house. The short cut to the beautiful village is quite delightful and Mark and Joan are very helpful regarding walks, buses etc. They even provide weather information on a daily basis near the dining room. Having a microwave and fridge sealed the deal for us as we didn't always want to go out for an evening meal. We stayed an extra night and would highly recommend Bryn Bella to anyone.

My partner and me recently stayed at the Glyn Bella for a few nights whilst visiting Betws-Y-Coed & what a pleasant stay it was. We recieved a warm welcome from Mark on arrival. Our room backed onto the garden which looked really nice but unfortunately we didn't make use of it due the weather. Our room was fully equipped with a mini fridge, kettle, teas/coffee, flat screen/dvd combi with usb port, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, ultra comfy bed, ensuite bathroom with power shower. What more do you need?! Ok the place is a little dated decor wise but it's a lovely guest house in the hills not a boutique contemporary city hotel. The breakfast was simply delicious... Plenty of choice, all local produce which is fab. Eggs from their own hens, local welsh sausages and bacon, cereals, juices, various teas and coffee. Just a 5minute lovely little walk away from Betws-Y-Coed village. Down a hill, past a farm house, along a little path & fields and across a suspension bridge above a river. Lots of good places to eat and drink in the Village too. A beautiful part of the world hidden away...

Every now and then things turn out even better than expected and this was one of those times. We booked Bryn Bella at the last minute not really knowing what we were letting ourselves in for, it turns out we should not have worried. We were greeted in the most friendly manner, shown around our room and were given many suggestions and recommendations from places to eat to places to visit. The room was great, roomy, spotlessly clean and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast was a delight and our hosts took great pleasure telling us exactly which local shop provided what part of the breakfast, from sausages to fruit these guys know their food and where it comes from.

We stumbled upon Bryn Bella and now have it firmly in our address book for future visits. They have an impressive number of awards proudly displayed and I can see why. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and book a king size room for the extra £5 it's worth it.

Bryn Bella was excellent accomodation our room was spacious well decorated with lots of extras to make our stay cimfortable : like tea making facilities and a mini fridge. We also enjoyed using lounge with all the books and maps of the local area, like bike trails places of interest and the daily weather update. We could not fault the family atmosphere and thier hospitality giving us great advice of what to do and see. The panoramic views were breath taking and the power shower certainly washed away the hard grime of the day. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed the eco friendly atmosphere the guest house advocates and the well cooked food was exceptional excellent value for money you will not be disaapointed!

It was good to know, that when we wanted to take out the car without the bikes attached, then we could store them safely in Bryn Bella Garages.

You can walk into town via a footpath, which is useful to know as your near if you want a drink and not to drive, just bring a torch for way back. There is a torch in the room supplied if you forget one which is handy.

On the day of leaving Wales we went to Conway Castle reomendend by the Owners of Bryn Bella, had a good day and pleased we made the journey seeing the lovely views around the castle.

The owners of Bryn Bella are very knowledgable of the area, which was very useful to discuss things to do each day, we walked and cycled in the area.

We'd visit again, enjoyed watching the birds at breakfast.

Room Tip: We chose Kingsize room no.3, this had a lovely view of the mountains and valley. Try and get the win...

We stayed here for a one nights stay as we were having a meal in a local place not far away (The Ty Gwyn) which i would recomend if you are thinking of dining out in Betws.

I would say it is typical of a B&B in the area and does have all that you need, it's clean and equipped with most things you require including a decent shower, comfy bed and clean towels.

We actually stayed next door a month before in (Llety Betws) which if im honest was of a 'slightly' higher standard than Bryn Bella, it just had a more modern feel to it and seemed a little more 'forward thinking'.

Breakfast is served until 9am and as me and my partner had a couple of glasses of wine the night before we didn’t turn into the dining area until just before 9 and thus we did feel a little rushed with things, however most people who stay here are off walking and up early so this shouldn’t bother majority of people.

All in all a nice B&B in the heart of North Wales with all that you need and a good breakfast, its just not as good as next door or others I have stayed in.

Room Tip: we stayed in the ground floor which was a little noisy when people were up for breakfast at 7am as i...
