Certificate of Excellence

Lovely B & B with very friendly hosts. Shades of traditional Welsh cottage decor with modern features in the bedroom. Bathroom was beautiful and modern even with it's exposed oak beams. House with a lot of history and ideally situated. Recommended

A wonderful B&B where everything is thought of. Bottles of mineral water and fresh milk in your own fridge, IPod docking station, toiletries in the bathroom, a map of the town with recommended restaurants etc Bedrooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Only problem was that at 6ft tall my fiance was a little too large for the quite small beds. Delicious breakfast too!

A nice B& B in a quaint Welch town. We were greeted warmly by our host and shown to our twin bedded room on the top of the house. The bed part of the room is small, but the connecting bathroom is large and well equipped. There are some renovations going on in the house. We had a window pane replaced by a piece of wood. Otherwise, the coffee/tea making equipment worked well. We enjoyed the 2 bottles of water in the fridge. The TV worked well. WiFi worked well also. We came down and asked about a place for dinner and were given a sheet with a list of restaurants in town. We took the short walk to the Royal Ship Hotel which offered a 1-, 2-, or 3- course meal plan. We had fresh salmon and cod and shared. The food was quite good.
I've read the reviews on TripAdvisor, the owner wasn't overly friendly, but we didn't find his rude either. It rained the following morning so we didn't see the patio. The repairs must have been made on the banister. We didn't see them.. Breakfast was well-prepared and delicious and the couple from the south of France were interesting breakfast companions.

Room Tip: NOT on the top floor, if possible. It's a long way up!

A super B&B. Attentive owner gave excellent service. Very tastefully decorated rooms (the breakfast room is amazing!) The bedroom contained fresh milk and bottled water in the fridge, good satalite TV and easily available WiFi. The bathroom was fantastic with dressing table and a brilliant shower/bath with unlimited nice shower gels etc. Breakfast was fantastic and the owner served us an hour earlier because we needed to start cycling early. Recommended.

We felt at home instantly on arrival with a warm welcome from our hosts. Our party had 2 rooms, a four poster and a twin on the top floor - really comfortable with lots of nice touches e.g a jug of fresh cold milk and bottled water in the room fridge plus a little bag of welsh cakes. The bathroom decor is excellent with a great bath and shower. Breakfast was superb. We would definitely stay here again if we were hiking in the area. We also appreciated the spacious parking space

Do not really need to say anything other than faultless. To have achieved such a high standard in such a short time shows real commitment. Real attention to small details in such a relaxing room. We have already recommended Plas Gwyn to many others.

Room Tip: all rooms looked excellent, but top floor a bit of a climb though

Have stayed at Plas Gwyn three times and cannot recommend it highly enough. Quality in every respect. I have used two of the rooms and in both cases they were very comfortable and homely with superb bathrooms. I particularly love the complementary welsh cakes! I wish the proprietors all success with their venture and will return.
