“Beautiful home and room with such charm”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 via mobile

My husband and I traveled here in May and we had an absolutely perfect stay!! This is by far our favorite bed and breakfast ever and we have been comparing all of our stays with it since. Our room was clean, spacious and the bed incredibly comfortable! The mattress was so plush along with the sheets and comforter. The breakfast was fresh and delicious too! The owners are a delightful family who are so very kind and make such a difference in your stay - I wish there were more people in the world like them! It's also in a perfect location on the water and close walking distance to town and to the castle - even part of the old castle wall is part of the B&B property. Parking is a little tricky but again the owners help you tremendously and there really is no need to stress over making it work. We can't thank you enough for such a great stay - I'm sorry it took me so long to write this review!! :)

Had to get lucky for parking, but how great being inside the old city walls, literally just down the street from the old castle. Loved the room and the breakfast. Jan was friendly and accommodating. Pubs and restaurants within easy distance. Had a view from our window out over the cit wall to the waters of the Menai Straight.

I am a well travelled, hotel management graduate, Chef & I can sincerely say Jane - the Landlady, runs this as a five star Ritzi hotel. Right from the moment you step in, the luxury begins, from complimentary wine & beers as your welcome drink, toys in our room for my young daughter, fully decorated drinks/tea tray, extra comfy luxuriously upholstered chairs, memory foam & duck/geese down pillows & duvets on glam looking bed to well thought out luxuriously appointed bathroom with Jacuzzi style bath, vanity chest, clean band on toilet and all finished with fancy toiletries aplenty. All in all I can not recommended this enough. This B&B would give most 4-star hotels run for its money. Right on Caernarfon(pronounced Kaenarvan) sea, it's fantastic place to stay. Usually I don't do reviews but I've written a few, but this by miles, many many beautiful welsh countryside miles(B4391) is the best. JANE YOU ARE A STAR!!!

カナーヴォン城をぜひ訪れたいと思い、こちらのB&Bにお世話になりました。

バス停からは少し歩きますが、カナーヴォン城にとても近かったです。
部屋は非常に広く、豪華でした。
バスルームも広かったです。

オーナーは非常に親切でした。
到着した時に紅茶や軽食をくれました。
朝食の時は女性のオーナーがチーズやパンの話をしてくれ、楽しかったです。
私がもっと英語ができていれば、もっと楽しかったと思います。

今回は一人でしたが、次回は家族で来たいです!


I wanted to visit the Caernarfon Castle by all means and used this B&B.

I walked a little from the bus stop, but Caernarfon castle was very near.
The room was luxurious very widely.
The bathroom was large, too.
The owner was very kind.
When I arrived, I gave tea and a light meal to me.
At breakfast time, the owner of the woman talked about cheese and the bread and was fun.
If I have more English, I think that it was more fun.

I was alone this time, but the next time wants to come in families!

Just have to say the Jan and the team at Victoria house are still by far the best people to stay with in the area. Maximum comfort, great location, great value and all those other little extra just make it a easy choice! Keep it up guys-see you soon

What a refreshing stay in a lovely B&B with a host who could not be more helpful.
Fear i did not give this B&B its full justification as Jan was just great
Caenarfon Castle is 1 minute away and Snowdownia National Park 20 mins, just enough to visit for my 2 days

Room Tip: Speak to Jan, to help get the best out of your stay
