Considering recession, touring round North Wales, thought there would be no problem finding accommodation. Everywhere fully booked, including the usual Premier Inn & Travel Lodge where you are almost guaranteed to get a room! Driving round the guest house areas late in the evening, happened upon this absolute gem! Waited outside in the rain in the car whilst the wife went in to see if they had a vacancy in this 4 star guest house - thank goodness they had a room available ! Given the option of seeing the room first - but just wanted a room! And what a room! Room 3 at the front - larger than our bedroom at home, with huge en-suite including jacuzzi bath! Set in quiet street (bit tight for parking) stones throw from the Castle - Beautiful breakfast and wanted to stay for a second night but unfortunately they were fully booked! Very hospitable and very helpful owner. This is EXACTLY what a guest house should be like and if more were like it, this counrty would have a better tourist industry!
