Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed our stay at Rhos Dhu. Went to get away from the fireworks and a peaceful stay was exactly what we got. Cottage was clean and well equipped. A short drive to the beach and spoilt for choice with options for walking. Thanks Anwen for a lovely stay.

We stopped in Betws Bach for a week, family of six. This is the second cottage I have used and I will never use caravans again given the option. This place was beautiful, clean off the main roads and lovely views. I was up early most mornings watching the sun rise over the top of the mountains, the property has a large grass play area and the owner was great. If you decide to stop in North Wales this is a great area to stop, it’s only a few minutes from Criccieth and and about 20 minutes from Porthmadog.

We've just come back from an amazing week's half term break at Betws Bach, Rhos country cottage. Anwen, the property owner, was amazing - very friendly, helpful and responsive to our queries. The cottage is spacious, inviting, comfortable, equipped with everything we needed and more. The games room with 3/4 sized snooker table kept us occupied for much of our evenings. The beautiful log burner in the lounge's impressive fireplace, gave off lots of heat and added to the cozy appeal during our cold February evenings there. The t.v. is quite basic with no smart facilities. Wifi signal is not good there anyway, apart from in the kitchen. We were already aware of this and it certainly didn't take anything away from our holiday. In fact, it was quite nice to escape from the fast pace of the outside world for a bit and spend better quality family time engaging with each other, playing board games, cards and snooker. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a dishwasher and a washing machine, which we used after our muddy daytime walks.The large round kitchen table came in handy for the 7 of us to sit around for meals, board games and cards. The crockery is very nice and all from Portmeirion. The bedrooms are very traditionally made up and all the beds are comfortable with quality bedding that suits the house. To access the rather grand bedroom and lovely shower room on the attic/2nd floor, you have to duck your head climbing the last few stairs and be careful when near the beamed entrance. It was fine though and none of us banged heads. The shower room on this floor is very nice and looks very new, as does the bathroom with overhead shower on the 2nd floor. The views from the house are magnificent on clear days. Yr Wyddfa and other Snowdonia mountain ranges are clearly visible. There's a lovely stoned patio area with patio furniture directly by the main front door and another smaller area with table and bench to the side of the house. The large grassy area in front of the patio leads down to the stream. We did so many different things and packed in as much as we could on our holiday. There is a large pack of information about the area, maps, suggested walks, etc., in Betws Bach. We found these leaflets etc., very handy and another great touch. We went on beach walks in Criccieth, Llandudno and Abersoch, mountain walks up Mynydd Mawr and other ranges, Aber Falls waterfalls walk etc.. As well as this, we went to Glasfryn adventure park for ten pin bowling, go carting and also to Zip World in Betws y Coed for Treetops forest coaster rides. We had an amazing meal one evening in the Goat Inn which is just over 2 miles away on the main road, A487 from Porthmadog to Caernarfon. I can recommend this. It's not cheap but it was excellent quality food and good service. All in all, we had a fab time and I wholeheatedly recommend Rhos country cottages if you're either up for exploring the beautiful gems of North Wales or even for a quiet, relaxing time away from it all.

Another FANTASTIC holiday at my most happy place. We have visited many of Anwens cottages over the past 13 years and it really is where I'm at my happiest. Another warm welcome from Anwen who always greets us upon arrival. The cottages are in the most idyllic location with so many wonderful places to visit for all ages and not to far away. The cottages have everything you could possibly need and are very well equipped. This time we took friends with us who could see just exactly what it is I love about this place and they too appreciated just how wonderfully relaxing this place is. Thank you again Anwen and we look forward to our next visit in 2022.

Had an amazing week at Rhos Ddu, having been there on many family holidays 40 - 45 years ago. Much had changed but also much had stayed the same, which brought back lovely memories for my mum and I. Beautiful cottage and even better than I remembered, with a fabulous modern kitchen, but still the amazing views and we were so lucky with the weather. It was really wonderful to see Anwen again and reminice after so many years - thank you for making us feel so welcome Anwen, brought back many happy memories and also created new ones!

Diolch yn fawr Anwen for providing everything for a wonderful week's stay at Rhos Ddu - Our third stay this year and many more over the years . We recommend all of Anwen's cottages to anyone- set in beautiful peaceful surroundings and all are of a very high standard ! We cannot speak to highly of them and Anwen always does all she can to ensure that her renters enjoy their stay in her cottages . Hugh & Barbara Weaver. SW London Sara-Jane & Leigh Saunders. Kent

We arrived at this beautiful cottage to be greeted by Anwen the lovely lady who owns the cottage.... although they are very secluded she was very aware of the Covid 19 expectations and all precautions were in place. The cottage was immaculate! Feeling a million miles from anywhere we had a lovely relaxing stay with everything you could want, it’s kitted out with very good quality equipment the peace and tranquility was wonderful and we would definitely stay again.
