Plas Celyn B & B
Ranked #3 of 10 Trefriw B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Stayed for a long weekend at Plas Celyn with Cate and Mike ( our second visit ). We had a fabulous break. Wonderful room with all you need and more including chocolates and lovely fresh roses ! It is just perfect in every way. A superb breakfast with fresh juices, yoghurt, selection of cereals and marvellous specials ! Great cooked breakfast with tea /coffee toast etc.. and all served on beautiful china. Cate even did fresh flowers on the table !
Very good food at the village pub " The Ship " and great walking from Trefriw. Very good for exploring either Snowdonia or the coast. Plas Celyn is first class !

My husband and I as well as two friends stayed with Cate and Mike over the first bank holiday in May. What a beautiful home Cate and Mike have! Ideal location, perfect for exploring Snowdonia National Park. A short drive from Betws-Y-Coed and literally 2mins walk to the local pubs (we ate twice at ‘The Ship’ and it was AMAZING food!).

The accommodation itself is perfect and very reasonably priced for what you receive! Homely, spacious, and decorated to an extremely high standard. We felt incredibly comfortable here and made to feel very ‘at home’. Cate and Mike have impeccable taste and have thought of everything for a nights/few nights stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The little touches really made it for me. After a day’s hike up Snowden, Cate had put a Green & Blacks chocolate bar on each of our bed side tables which was greatly appreciated by all after our mammoth climb! The robes and slippers are a great addition, and the tea/coffee making facilities are fab – fresh milk and a jar of cookies (which were scrummy!) with a variety of teas and coffees to choose from. The master room has lovely large windows so plenty of light. Cracking Vidal Sassoon hair dryer and lots of storage space to store walking gear. The bed was sooooo comfortable; kingsize, with very good quality bedding and pillows. Even though the property is on the main road through Trefriw, the road was extremely quiet at night so a good nights sleep was had by all.

Bathroom is well equipped and the shower has great pressure.

Breakfast was definitely a highlight! Plenty of choice! All the ingredients are locally sourced and served on beautiful Portmeirion china. We were set up for the day after Mike’s full Welsh! Cate very kindly provided us with flasks of tea so we could have a warmer on our walks.

After an evening in the pub, Mike lit the open fire for our return which was very thoughtful and finished off our evening perfectly.

All in all I would highly recommend Plas Celyn. You will not be disappointed!

My girlfriend and I wanted a week away from it all and what a delightful little gem plas celyn is. An excellent location away from hustle and bustle but a short drive to a busy town of bets-y-coed, and only a short walk/stumble to the local pub! the view from the window is breath taking leaving you to want to get outside and explore more. great sleep in the comfy and quiet bedroom leaving you fresh and ready for the fantastic breakfast. Locally sourced meat cooked to perfection not greasy and keeps you going till tea! The hosts make you feel very welcome and are focused on the finest detail. They share there local knowledge depending on what you wish to do but can suggest a number of things to do whilst staying. All i can say is i wish i didn't have to leave.

Just spent Easter weekend here, what a brilliant place! Cate & Mike are a wonderful couple, they go above and beyond to make your stay comfortable and breakfast is lovely, we were very spoilt! :-) The room is amazing, it's big and very well furnished, as is the rest the rest of the place.

The village is so peaceful and relaxing with lots to do round and about and made a great base to go walking. We will definitely be going back and recommending it to all our friends that like to visit North Wales. Thanks again Cate & Mike for making us feel very welcome and looking after us

We spend the bank holiday weekend here with cate and mike. this has to be one of the best b and b's we've ever stayed in. set in a perfect location, very central, surrounded by with endless things to do for all types of people whether you want to walk from the door or go sight seeing.
Now the actual accomodation...... well the room is huge with its own seating area, beautifully decorated, excellent high quality fixtures n fittings more like a high end hotel. Thats not even mentioning the best bed ever seriously comfortable with a choice of pillows. im really picky about beds and pillows but this was perfect.
the attention to detail is amazing everthing you could possibly think of is there, thick fluffy towels spare toiletries the works.
breakfast... not sure if cate was a chief in a previous life but the food was amazing.
basically this is a great place to stay would recommend it to everyone. I cant praise it enough.

Room Tip: Dont hesitate just book it!

We can only echo the previous reviews.
This is a quality B and B, with delicious, interesting, varied breakfasts (scales in bathroom!), friendly helpful hosts and thoughtful touches.
Lots of information and tips available eg where to wild swim! Collected daughter from nearby rail station (North Lanrwst) and enjoyed meals at the Ship in the village and at the good value Thai in Lanrwst, both on foot. Good to be a little away from Betws - y-Coed. Would be fun to bring cycles here another time.
Have never written a review before, but feel moved to, such was the excellent service.

Stayed with my wife at Plas Celyn on a one night stay to visit family on a short visit to Snowdonia. We were very impressed with Plas Celyn, good location, lovely room and a very comfortable bed and a brilliant breakfast, with a range of choices. The hosts are friendly and professional and have made their house in to a lovely B&B. Well done and an example of how a B&B should look, feel and be run.
