“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

We really enjoyed our two night stay at Maes-y-Garth. We were sad to leave so soon and plan to return later in the year with some family.
We were made to feel so welcome right from the start. Tracey and Stefan were very knowledgable about the local area and were able to provide leaflets and maps to nearby attractions.
The accommodation is absolutely spotless and very comfortable. We enjoyed our breakfast very much, taking advantage of the full English breakfast on offer! We also had the choice of many alternatives such as cereal, fruit, yoghurt etc. They offer a packed lunch at a small charge of £5, which we decided to order one day. It came in a cool bag with an ice pack and was very enjoyable.
Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts, even down to providing a torch and umbrellas for the short walk into Betws-y-Coed. Not that we needed these as the weather was good, but such a nice touch. After deciding to go for a long walk, we found we had forgotten our ruck-sack so decided to buy another. After telling Tracey this, she magically provided us with one to use, so saved the day!
Wi-Fi was an added plus, we were impressed with the speed.
We did not realise there would be so much to do in the area, so need to return to see all there is on offer.
Many thanks for looking after us so well,
Rob and Theresa

We were delighted with the accommodation at Maes-y-Garth for our weekend break. We were made very welcome and our hosts were marvellous! The rooms are all very tastefully decorated with a modern contemporary feel and the location offers great views. Scores very high all-round!

We had a very warm welcome on arrival, and Tracey proved to have a wealth of knowledge about the area and its attractions, and was only too pleased to recommend places to visit and local restaurants for evening meals. The accommodation is superb, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the breakfasts were first class.Thoughtful touches such as the provision of torches to light our way back after an evening out were most welcome. Maes-y-Garth has beautiful views of the surrounding countryside,

Tracey and Stefan provided a perfect stay in every way, and our only regret was that it wasn't for longer than the 3 nights we had booked.We are planning to return next year.

We have just returned from a most enjoyable stay with Tracey and Stefan at Maes y Garth. We were greeted with warmth and taken to the ground floor room we had asked for. It is a lovely room, plenty of space. fabulous view through French windows to a little terrace where we could sit to catch the sun. The huge bed was I think the most comfortable one I have ever slept in. I have back problems and sometimes can hardly stand up after sleeping in hotel beds but no such problems here. Everything is spotlessly clean. even the 'Hotel Inspector' wouldn't find a spec of dust here!! There are too many thoughtful touches to mention them all, e g a torch on the bedroom door, torches and umbrellas by the front door,and a well stocked hospitality tray. Breakfast was very well cooked and nicely presented. The surroundings are beautiful and there are lots of interesting things to do in the area. Both Tracey and Stefan are very friendly and kind hosts who did everything in their power to help us to have a perfect stay and went the extra mile to ensure my disabilities were well catered for. We would recommend this lovely house to anyone, no faults at all. Can't wait to go back !

Room Tip: We stay in room 5 which is a ground floor room but I am sure the other rooms will be of equally high...

We received such a warm welcome when we arrived at Maes y Garth for our 5 nights family get-together and that was just the start of a very special holiday accommodation experience. All our rooms were simply perfect, spotlessly clean, white fluffy towels, toiletries, tea and coffee making facilities, torches for walking home from Betws y Coed on dark evenings as well as umbrellas for those occasional times when weather was not so kind In fact nothing was left to chance. Breakfasts were tasty and beautifully presented with plenty of options available. Maes y Garth provides wonderful views but it is also very close to the village by following an easy and scenic path and then over a pretty bridge. Tracey and Stefan were so helpful in enabling us to arrange our sightseeing days in the most interesting way possible and Betws y Coed proved to be the ideal village from which to begin our tours. Many thanks Tracey and Stefan for helping to make our holiday so special. We have all taken home lovely memories. Brilliant Maes y Garth and its hosts.

Big thank you to Stefan and Tracy for making our 2 night stay such a lovely experience...we cannot really add anything extra to the excellent reviews that are already given here just to say attention to detail was outstanding.We went to Betws Y Coed for an anniversary stay and to experience the fantastic zip wire at Zip World, had a lovely few days.
Ate at the Bistro in town...lovely quality meal.
Can definitely recommend this place as a great base for exploring the area.

Bendigedig is Welsh for magnificent, and Maes y Garth is indeed magnificent in every respect. My wife and I stayed for three nights in late May. Having read glowing reports we knew what to expect, but Maes y Garth exceeded even our expectations.Tracey and Stefan have reached an exceptionally high standard and the warm welcome they gave us complemented the quality of the accomodation. This B and B is truly outstanding.
