We travelled down to The Ferns with our 9 year old son and had the most wonderful time there. The guest house was very clean and the family room we were allocated fitted our requirements to the maximum. We were greeted on arrival by the very friendly owners Lynn and David, who did everything they could to make us feel welcome. The location is great as it is only a short walk into the village which houses various attractions and restaurants. We all loved the breakfast which was cooked fresh with local produce. We really enjoyed our time at The Ferns and we can not wait to go back. It was a lovely break away in a wonderful and welcoming guest house.

Hi Lynn & David. Just received your lovely Newsletter and it has prompted me to write a quick review about our last stay with you.
As regular visitors, we can’t recommend your lovely B&B highly enough to anyone wanting to visit this part of Wales, it really is a ‘Home from Home’ for us. You always make us feel very welcome and look after us whilst we are with you with clean rooms and a delicious breakfast. See you again soon, lots of love, Faye and Andrew.

My daughter and I are regular visitors to The Ferns Guest House. We love the hospitality, the bright sunny rooms, the location and the lovely breakfasts.

Firstly Lynn and David Taylor are very welcoming and will assist in any way they can to ensure that we have a comfortable stay.They also provide all the information we could possibly need for trips out and activities that both my daughter and I would enjoy.

The Ferns appeals to me in that you are always aware that should you need any assistance that is available however you are given your own space in a home like environment.

I have and would recommend The Ferns to anyone.

Finally we have found the perfect B & B in Betws-y-coed, and why is it so perfect, well there are lots of reasons. We stayed at The Ferns for the first time over the Easter Weekend and having been to Betws-y-coed several times before we were amazed that we hadn’t stayed here before. Upon arrival we were greeted by Lynn who welcomed us into their Guest Lounge and offered us tea, coffee and biscuits, fantastic after a long journey. After going through the formalities Lynn then spent 10 minutes trying to book us into a Restaurant for something to eat later that night, no mean feet on Good Friday, nothing was too much for the hosts but they didn’t intrude on you, they didn’t have too as everything was so professionally run. We stayed in Room 3, a beautiful double room at the front of the house overlooking the forest and river across from it, the room was spotlessly clean, warm, had plenty of space and had a good shower, what more could you want. My husband who has his own business, needed to check on some Emails, again this was not a problem as we were given the Wi-Fi code, instead of working in the bedroom, my husband completed his work out of the way in the cosy Guest Lounge, fabulous. A short stroll from the Guest house and we were in the bustling village centre, this is another great point for the Ferns, it is as the owner’s say at the quieter edge of the Village, this is spot on after sampling a very busy Easter Vacation in the area.

The Ferns does exactly what it says on the tin, great rooms, the perfect location, wonderful hosts and the best breakfast we have sampled on our travels, thank you Lynn and David, we will see you again soon.

We stayed at The Ferns for a 4 day break and we were most pleased. We arrived tired and stressed after a long journey and were offered a pot of tea in the lounge by David, which was most welcome. We were in room 3, which was adequate in size, although the on-suite shower was rather cramped. The shower itself was fine with plenty of hot water, but the step up into the cubicle itself was higher than we have usually found, which could be a problem for the less able; also the cubicle door didn't open fully due to the position of the sink.We were at the front of the house, and although we live in a quiet rural road, we didn't find any problem with road noise at night. The bed was very comfortable - neither too hard nor too soft, so we slept well.
The cooked breakfast was very good, but we had to choose our option when we arrived. I changed a couple of items for the next morning after breakfast twice with absolutely no problems. Lynn whized around serving breakfast with great efficiency and a huge smile! There was a choice of cereals, porridge, prunes, grapefruit, apricots, yogourt, but no choice of juice - just a very good orange. They have a time-slot of 8.00 - 8.30 for breakfast, with no variation, but that suited us just fine.
Parking was available on the sloping drive, and if there were more than two cars they request that you move off the drive each morning onto the free road parking to avoid blocking anyone in.
It was only a few minutes walk from the varied food options of pubs, hotels and restaurants.
