We decided on this last minute two day break after a very disappointing start to the week & wow what a fantastic way to end it!! It's difficult to know where to start that can praise this lovely couple highly enough. We were made to feel welcome before we'd even left home, by receiving a very informative email from Mair & Gerry telling us about their b&b, places of interest, walking & cycling routes and places to eat. They offered to help us put together an itinery for sightseeing and as soon as we arrived we were invited into their living quarters (kitchen) for a drink and a chat and then shown to our room. We stayed in the smallest of the 3 rooms (Menai) which was very well laid out, very tastefully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable.
We had use of the front lounge which was very cosy and later in the evening gave us the opportunity to meet the other guests where we spent over 30 minutes chatting with them, sharing tips on where we'd all visited and eaten. Breakfast was wonderful from the fresh fruit through to the toast & jams.....do not pass on the cooked breakfast, it was truly delicious.
On our first full day we were out sightseeing for nearly 11 hours which had been aided by Gerry and his wealth of knowledge about Wales. When it came to us leaving they took the trouble to print out a scenic route for our journey home.
No matter how busy they are, they always have time to chat. Mair treated me to a very interesting talk on the Solanum plant, when i enquired about the 'weird looking' gooseberry bush growning in the garden. It was in fact a potato plant and she very kindly gave me a seedling to take home.
They are the most knowledgeable and friendly couple that you could hope to meet. It's clear to see from our stay with them and other reviews that they are devoted to giving their guests a 1st class service!!!
