Marianfa
Ranked #10 of 21 Caernarfon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

A friendly B&B located conveniently within walking distance of the town. Situated in a quiet area we had a peaceful nights sleep. Room was clean and well stocked with tea and coffee (and even hot chocolate!). En suite bathroom was very small but better that having to share! Shower was good (shower gel provided). Owners were very helpful and friendly and made time to speak with us. Breakfast was delicious and enough choice was given. Beds were comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

We stay in CAERNARFON because it sounds to be a nice place for visiting North Wales :
And, really it was ...
We choose MARIANFA Guest House because we found, onwebsites that it was well rated :
And really, it is justified ...
June & Jeff are always taken care of all is going fine in the house. And they are always available to advice you for visiting the nice places depending of your preferences.
Regarding MARIANFA house itself (room, breakfast), all is perfect.
To summarize, if you have a B&B good address to choose : This is definitively MARIANFA
Many thanks again to June & Jeff

I have stayed at Marianfa on the night before the Snowdonia Marathon for the last 9 years. Jeff and June are lovely hosts and the rooms are spotless and well equipped. They provide a proper breakfast and the atmosphere is great. I thoroughly recommend Marianfa as an excellent Bed and Breakfast. Neil P

This was our third time staying at Marianfa and every time as good as the last, if not better. June & Jeff are very welcoming and you are instantly made to feel at home. The full english breakfasts are to die for and as we had an early start on one of our mornings, June & Jeff were kindly very flexible with an earlier breakfast time, which set us up for the long day ahead.

There's plenty to do in the area and Caernarfon has a fair selection of restaurants, but you would be advised to book in advance as the evening eateries can get booked up quickly. June & Jeff will certainly point you in the direction of the best places as they have another self catered property not too far away and great knowledge of their local area. Snowdonia is a lovely part of the world and in our opinion, there's no better place to explore it from.

Don't get ripped off in the 'chain' hotels, stay in this wonderful and friendly B&B. We will definitely go back.

My wife and I arrived un booked and just rang the bell!
We were met by very friendly hosts Jeff & June, showed to a fantastic room with stunning views over the Menai Straits. We unfortunately were only able to stay three nights and had a great welcome and superb breakfast in clean well fitted out accomodation.

A real pleasure to stay at Marianfa, having now returned to Namibia we can only say we shall return. A real find in a great location for Caernarfon and the rest of Snowdonia.

Room Tip: Room 5. A superb family room with stunning views, a balcony and very quiet.

Have just returned from an overnight biking trip to the area and once again the only place to stay was here. Second time this year, and now in my seventh year I cannot stress how friendly and comforting Jeff and June make our stays. And what a breakfast!!!. If your looking for a quiet place within walking distance of the town if you need it, or restaurants and a local if thats what you prefer, all at superb value for money, then head to Marianfa. Oh and don't forget the secure yard for the bikes. Most important.
Thanks again both, see you in October.
