The Fairhaven Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #35 of 47 Betws-y-Coed B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Stayed here with friends in late May. The B&B is right in the centre of Betws y Coed.
We had a nice room. Very comfortable bed. Shower a little weak but that was the only negative. We paid for the room and then separately for each breakfast which has to be ordered by 6pm the night before. The breakfast options were good, really good!
It has no space for car parking but we found places just up the road so no problem really. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at front of the house give a nice view across the road to the river.

we booked breakfast which was well worth the £6 huge! kept us going all day. simon n sharon are exceptional hosts nothing is too much trouble.

The guest house is situated on the main road in the middle of the village, parking is quite a distance away from the house.
We stayed in a top floor room with a super king bed.
The room was nice but had a few extra' s missing like shampoo, biscuits and tissues.
We ordered breakfast the next morning which was huge and perfect to set us up for the day while walking up snow don.

What a lovely place to stay in Betws-y-Coed. We were given clear instructions on where to park for free (which was really easy to find) and a map of the town. Breakfast is charged separately at £6 per person, with 6 different choices. All you need to do is to place your order on the breakfast sheet before 7am. I would certainly recommend the breakfast which was delicious and great value. If you're looking for a friendly, warm and welcoming place which is centrally located, then this is the place to stay.

Such a gorgeous place to stay, lovely and clean. Staff very friendly and relaxed. I love they way in which the owners leave you to it and you can find them easily if you need them. Me and partner stayed in the superior room with a king sized bed! The room was clean lovely and well furbished. I wish I could find the blanket that was on the bed because it was so comfortable. Amazing place to stay for families and couples.. Wish I could of stayed longer! Just wish breakfast was a bit later but understanding due to the early risers! Totally love and recommended this place to everyone!

Wow! What a great stay! Simon made us feel very welcome and didn't even mind letting us in after midnight after another guest had put the latch down which stopped our key from letting us in! Great accommodation, lovely dining room and delicious breakfast. Looking forward to our next stop! Darren, Malvern

We love Betws y Coed but this was our first stay here on what would have been our wedding night, if we hadn't postponed due to illness. We booked room 6 for 2 nights £70 per night bed only.
When we booked we chose to pay on arrival/departure but had to enter credit card details to secure. We then found that one of the nights was then charged to our credit card with a 2% booking fee (informed by email but didn't read before had chance to do anything about it). Both days we had to pay £4 parking and Breakfast wasn't included so by the time we paid for this worked out quite expensive.
The welcome when we got there wasn't great, we didn't feel very welcome and were basically just passed key and told where room was. As we didn't partake in breakfast the place felt very impersonal after initial lack of a welcome. There was just something missing that prevented us feeling that homely feeling.
I know Betws Y Coed can demand higher prices but place didn't quite warrant the £75 a night average, after parking booking charge etc.
Room lovely, nice furnishings, bed, clean etc but just something lacking and a shame view spoiled by absolutely filthy windows.
