Reviewed 26 June 2009

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Llys Olwen, in the delightful village of Morfa Nefyn.
It has been run by the same family for many years; I found it to be extremely clean, comfortable, and friendly; above all I felt at home from the moment that I arrived to the moment that I left.
Llys Olwen is situated in an enviable location; only a few minutes walk from the beach, and stunning cliff-top walks.
I consider that the standard offered at Llys Olwen was excellent, and that it represented very good value.
I very much hope to return there.

Just come back from Llys Olwen and loved it. It's a classic B&B, super friendly welcome, immensely helpful and considerate hosts, great food, fantastic value. It's within striking distance of beautiful coastline and beaches (like Whistling Sands).

We had the misfortune of staying 1 night at the above-mentioned B&B, which displays a Welsh Tourist Board placard with two stars. From the outside, the property looked nice and we expected the same to be reflected inside, however in our opinion it is unlikely that the property has been updated in several years. We booked two double rooms for 3 people and ended up with a double and a twin on the top floor. Our rooms were not ensuite and that would not have been a problem had the communal bathrooms been clean and plentiful enough to accommodate the number of people that seemed to be sharing them. There appeared to be several bedrooms sharing only two bathrooms with showers/toilets and two other toilets, all of which were in need of a thorough clean. Although there were bottles of cleaning products in the bathrooms, from the dust and grime, it did not appear that they were given a proper clean regularly. In addition to that, the bathrooms were carpeted and damp underfoot due to the number of people using them. There was also mould on the tiles and dirty nail brushes on the sinks. This did not lead to a comfortable stay. Although the bedrooms were reasonably spacious, they were so dusty that we had trouble sleeping. In addition, the beds were made up with sheets and extremely scratchy, army style blankets with bedspreads and while the sheets and pillow cases appeared to be clean, this could not be said for the blankets and bedspreads. One of the beds in the twin room was so sunken in the middle that it was obvious the mattress had not been changed in years. The breakfasts were reasonable, however the dining tables we ate at were also in need of a thorough clean feeling sticky to the touch. Our hostess was pleasant and chatty but did not ask us when we left if we had enjoyed our stay. This may indicate that she knows the accommodation is not up to scratch. It is without a doubt that the property is located in a lovely spot within walking distance to the beach, however all three of our party could not wait to check out in the morning and we left feeling grimy and in need of a decent, clean shower.
