“Fantastic Hosts and Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

After a very long drive from Exmouth to Wales, we received a really warm welcome from Bev and a very much appreciated hot drink, even though it was 10pm! This guest house has a very homely feeling and we were made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was super and plenty to set you up for an active day ahead. Perfect location for Snowdon and Joe was able to give us lots of helpful information to plan the day and weather updates really useful.

Friendly hosts, comfortable room and super, super clean. What's not to like?

I stayed here with a friend for a couple of nights and we loved it! Betws-y-Coed is such a beautiful place to stay. There were some gorgeous little shops, nice pubs and great restaurants.
Joe and Bev were really friendly and welcoming, we stayed in Room 1 Twin, and the beds were really comfortable and both the room and bathroom were spotless clean. There were bottled water/biscuits/chocolates/ tea and coffee facilities provided in the room. Breakfast was lovely, a great start to each day. Bev offered to fill our flasks to take with us which kept us going throughout the day. Joe and Bev were very attentive and made sure we always had everything we needed to make sure we enjoyed our stay.

You really couldn't beat the level of comfort and service we received.

Me and My Hubby have just had 3 great nights with Bev and Joe at Bod Gwynedd.
From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so welcome the whole stay was so relaxed and what a great time we had.
Joe cooked a wonderful breakfast that set you up for a full days walking in this beautiful place.
Bev recommended place to visit and also great places for dinner.
The room we stayed in was room 1 on the ground floor. The room was spotless clean and very nicely decorated. The refreshment tray was always really well stocked with tea, coffee and nice extras of hot chocolate and fab little biscuits and mints.
We had a wonderful time we will defiantly see you again.

There seemed to be a lot of B&Bs along the same road and nearby in Betws-y-Coed, but I think we made a good choice.

The location was a little further out from the "centre" where most of the restaurants and shops are, but this was nice, since it was quiet and nearer to Swallow Falls. You could still walk into the centre easily. I'd say it's longer than the 5 minutes mentioned on their website, maybe 5 or 10 to the first restaurant, but longer to the rest - but still not far for most people visiting the area, who would probably be expecting to walk a lot.

It was also well situated for a riverside or forest walk, and in a pretty location. Swallow Falls is a long walk or a short drive away.

The shower was excellent (powerful and easy to control the temperature, glass screens which don't allow a wet floor like you get in some hotel rooms). Though there was no blind on the window. I know it was quite deserted and we weren't on the ground floor, but until the glass of the window and shower screens steamed up, I didn't feel totally relaxed. Maybe that was just me though.

The bathroom was a little small, but fine for a short stay and still well equipped. Sounds silly, but I was glad there was a toilet brush (don't like there being none, forgot to mention there wasn't in my previous Welsh B&B).

The cooked breakfast was very good. We found the sausages a little strange (peppery) but this is just personal taste. Nicely cooked eggs (fried and poached were best). Good selection of cereals, juices etc. It's a little limiting to choose which cooked items you want the night before, but I suppose it means it's cooked quicker for you. The choice of times was nice.

Coffee and tea making facilities in the room were good, and after the first night, I asked for mini milk sachets instead of creamer, which I got. There would have been milk in the fridge downstairs if we'd wanted, too.

The four poster bed was fun and romantic, as expected. My husband felt the mattress was a bit odd, but I slept fine and didn't mind it. The decoration in the room was all tasteful and pretty. The only bad point was probably that there wasn't much space for two suitcases (or to unpack much clothing), though we did manage.

Good to have the local area leaflets in the hallways. Specific parking is quite limited, though there is space on the road in front.

Bev was friendly and helpful, able to help with advice on the local area (including where to eat and the offer to reserve a table for us) and even gave us home-made Welsh cakes as we left. Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

Stayed end of November
2013 for 2 nights for a walking trip. Can't fault this place. Immaculately presented. Plenty of heat. Excellent shower. Really good breakfast. Friendly owners. Can't imagine there is better accommodation in Betws y Coed.

My husband and I stayed at Bod Gwynedd for 3 nights as part of our anniversary. We had a fantastic three days. The B&B was exceptionally clean, extremely comfy beds and the breakfast was really delicious. Bev and Joe were so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Bev recommended places to visit as well as places to eat of a night. We have fallen in love with this beautiful spot in wales and it was made all the more special by the lovely experience we received at Bod Gwynedd B&B. We hope to be back again in the future! Thanks again Bev and Joe.

Our family of four stayed at Bod Gwynedd B&B for two nights. What a great experience.
Bev was welcoming, and helpful. She recommended places for us to eat, and activities for us to do. She booked a fantastic restaurant for us for our second night's stay. I could have easily stayed in Holyhead for my whole vacation.
With a river and park across the road, and beautiful little town with wonderful walking tracks through the forest, we spent a lot of time, walking, and exploring, and taking in the wonderful scenery.
Beds were comfortable, Breakfast was yummy. Bev was able to organise two rooms next to each other so our children aged eight and 10, had their own space. They had a wonderful experience. We loved Bod Gwynedd B&B, and would definitely go back.
