“Absolutely Brilliant”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

What a fabulous b&b! Came looking for a relaxing break and were certainly not disappointed. Location is great as suitably remote enough but less than half an hour from Chester. The owner, Cat is brilliant. Felt like we'd known each other for years and we haven't giggled as much in ages. Breakfast was top notch too. We will certainly return.

We stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of December '13, we were welcomed my the lovely Cat, who made us feel right at home. The room was big with a queen bed and flat screen TV, the bathroom was big with bath and separate shower and the underfloor heating was lovely after a days walking! Perfect for our dog too as our room had its own little garden. We will definitely be going back time and time again. Overall a great B&B, with lovely staff. :)

Honestly the reception you'll receive at this lovely little B&B is almost beyond words Catriona and her wonderful family make you feel so welcome its ridiculous. Talk about home from home! A location that is truly stunning, a hearty breakfast more suitable to a king and hints and tips for the surrounding area of what to do and where to go in abundance. Quite honestly by missing out on a stay at Hafan Deg and you're really missing out. Keep up the impeccable work Cat and massive thanks for everything Al x

Room Tip: The Windsor is great

We stayed at Hafen Deg whilst visiting family in nearby Mold. Cat is one of the loveliest people and her hospitality is amazing. We arrived about 7 and were shown to our rooms. As a family of 5 we were given all the guest accommodation. Our sons had the spacious twin room, we had the suite with a huge bed whilst our daughter had the cosy single next door. Our room had a lovely sitting area. The underfloor heating was a treat as were the electric blankets. Such a comfortable nights sleep.

We ate at the local pub - good food and ale! The next morning we spent a good hour over breakfast, so much delicious food. Unfortunately we only stayed one night but plan to return. Lovely family, dogs, home, an absolute pleasure to stay. Thank you!

You may ask, was my last review just pie-in-the-sky? Was I merely carried away with the moment? Did enthusiasm cloud my judgement? Was I being a bit poncey? Nope!! Not a bit of it! We (myself, wife and aged ma-in-law) went back, 6 and a bit months after the last time. Not only was it every bit as good, it was better! This time, the eggs were freshly laid by Cat's own Rhode Island Reds (Ruth, Rebecca and Rachel) and you wouldn't believe how good they were. The eggs, that is, although the hens were pretty well behaved, if slightly peckish! The brecky was, as ever, enough to keep you going through the day, Cat was, as ever, one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet, the welcome was, as ever, 110% and the Enjoyment-Factor was, as ever about 130%. Little Darcy was, as ever, a bundle of joy. Oh, did I mention, the beds were so comfortable that getting up was a major wrench? Hasta la vista, chum! And the sooner the better!

Room Tip: It won't matter - they're all superb!

Visiting family in the area, this was a fantastic find, In a small hillside village close to a market town. We were impressed by the location as we drove up but meeting Cat and entering Hafan Deg we immediately felt at home. Our room was well appointed with 2 comfortable beds (made up as superking), oustanding views, tea/coffee facility (well stocked including fresh milk), wifi, TV and good bathroom.
That evening we walked to the local Pub, the Miners Arms, for drinks and dinner with family who had driven out to meet us. It's a realy friendly "Local", apparently the hub of the village.
Breakfasts were a joy with a veritable feast on offer and all the better for chatting with Cat as she served us..
We stayed 2 nights and were sorry to leave but having found Cat and Hafan Deg we know we will be back.
