Friendly host, comfy room with fantastic views across the traeth and an excellent breakfast. TV and WI FI available. Some great walks on the coastal path in both directions toward Black Rock sands or to Porthmadog.

Probably the best view in north Wales.Ideally placed just a mile from portmadog. A short walk and you are on the beach. With portmerion and cricieth nearby. There are plenty of restaurants and cafe's locally. Your host is charming lady and keeps very high standards, along with a wonderful cooked breakfast.

We found Bron Afon in our Rough Guide to Wales one day as we were looking for a place to stay that same night. We received a very warm welcome over the phone and were told when we showed up hungry that we could check in later as long as we made it back by eleven. This was so helpful... More

The owner is a lovely woman who makes sure you are comfortable and has what you need, but leaves you to your own devices. The location is really lovely if you enjoy walking along the long scenic path which is literally at the front of the house. The walk will take you to the beach and has great views of... More

Lovely comfortable and quiet - instant access to the coast path. You can walk in to Porthmadoc (the Ship Inn is good for evening meals) in about 15 minutes. Using Tesco carrier bags in the waste basket just seems eminently sensible recycling to me.

The location is superb with rooms overlooking the estuary and mountains. Bedroom was a good size with a small bathroom. The rooms were clean but required a little more attention to detail. An example the plastic bag in the waste basket was a Tesco carrier bag. Breakfast although good could do with a little better presentation. The cereals were in... More

An excellent value bed an breakfast, scrupulously clean in an excellent location with a friendly landlady. To nit pick it would have benefitted from a hair dryer and a vegetarian choice for breakfast but otherwise it was excellent.

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed. By way of context, I write this review having since stayed at a 5* hotel in Brighton, which was thoroughly disappointing against this little B&B.
