Jan and staff do an amazing job with this quiet B & B in Caernarvon. Jan isn't just warm and gracious to all of her guests, she goes the extra mile to make sure everyone is comfortable.
The rooms are beautifully appointed with traditional touches and spotlessly clean. There is milk in the little mini frig for your morning coffee/tea. Robes and slippers hanging in the wardrobe makes one feel as if they are at an elegant spa resort. We had a view of the Irish Sea from our room (#6), as well as the castle wall, being a part of Jan's garden. The generous breakfast is served in the lovely dining room. Not having seen Caernarvon listed as a walled city, we were surprised to find all of the old-world charm. This is a good base for exploring Snowdonia and Llanberis areas and a 45 minute drive to the Irish Ferries. Parking is a challenge, but Jan is a very good source for parking info. Just take care to note that the "handicap parking only" signs sit off the curb away from the street. We loved our stay here, and only were sorry it was just for one night.
