“Home from Home”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Friendly hosts, comfortable, spotlessly clean, great location and lovely views. Every little detail has been considered. The B&B is just a short stroll to the village center. If we are in the area again this is where we'll be staying. We could not think of anything that could be improved on. Thanks Eileen and John for a lovely stay.

The best B@B we have ever stayed at. Eileen and John can't do enough and everything is just perfect. There is nothing we can think of which could be improved upon- Deserves at least '10 stars'! Thanks so much for such a comfortable stay, we know we will be back.

What can we say after reading such a wonderful review. Thank you. It is so nice when guests really appreciate the effort we put in and even nicer when we open the door and see them there again. 29.8% of our guests are returning for another stay. It is like a house party sometimes where we know everyone. See you soon.

I suspect that Betws-y-Coed knows how "cute" it is, set in the junction of several valleys. This B&B is a great place to stay. The warm welcome we received confirmed that our choice was a good one. The rooms offer every comfort, and there are communal lounge areas as well. The host offered us a welcome cuppa soon after we arrived and has a great knowledge of the area. The breakfast was served in a delightful room and was nourishing and hearty, with hot food cooked to order. It is an easy walk downhill to the heart of the village. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room, so if you can get a room then don't worry.

We feel it is essential for guests to have somewhere other than the bedrooms in which to relax and so the sitting room and the reading room fill this requirement perfectly. Likewise having to order your breakfast the night before is a no go here as we find it hard to imagine how anyone can know what they want twelve hours earlier than they eat it!.

We trust the rest of your holiday went well and you had a good time. It was nice to meet you. Thank you so much for your review.

Just got back from a two day break in betws-y-coed, for our 30th weddng anniversary. We looked at lots of hotels for our stay and chose Tan Dinas because of the great reviews, and it did not disappoint. Wth a lovely friendly and warm welcome, which continued throughout our stay, our room was lovely and cosy and spotless, and the views were very picturesque.Nothing was to much trouble and johns breakfast was spot on, wth plenty of choice.We were presented with a card on the morning of our anniversay, and were really touched. We would highly recommend Tan Dinas and hope to return in the future, such lovely host's.

tan dinas is perfectly situated just a shot stroll out of betws-y. The host was warm and knowledgeable but never overly intrusive. The room was spacious and very clean and the breakfast was spot on. The trek up Snowdon was a bit hairy so was great to come back to our little haven. See you again soon.

Room Tip: could be a little warmer so ask for heating to be put up a little?

It was a pleasure sharing our home with you both. Snowdon is a great experience and we are pleased you enjoyed it, but maybe come again and go up when there is no snow on it !! Your review is much appreciated and we look forward to meeting you again soon.

Stayed for 1 night at Tan Dinas and loved every minute of it from the warm welcome we received on arrival right to the perfect breakfast in the morning.
Immaculately clean and very warm and cosy considering the age of the building and the fact we visited in February.
Would recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting the area, I doubt there is anywhere that could beat the views here and the friendliness.

Your review was much appreciated - many thanks. The views here are certainly the best around and even after seven years we still find them mind-blowing. Every window in the house benefits from amazing views so we hope you will come back and see a different view next time. The house is very warm as we have had the roof insulated with a 2" layer of foam on the tiles which seals the heat in the house. A new boiler and central heating has helped too. If we light the log fires, we generally have to open windows to cool off, as you say it's most unusual in an old Victorian property to be so snug and warm. Luckily enough the house is south facing so in the summer we benefit from every ray of sunshine throughout the day too.

Welcoming, clean, quite and cosy. Loads of space to park and a nice 5 minute down-hill walk into the village. Room had enough coffee and tea supplies to keep us both going (serious caffeine addicts) over two days and we had a little fridge with fresh milk in. Could not fault the place.

It was very kind of you to write a review. Thank you. Our car park which will take 15 cars is a massive bonus in this area as private, off road parking is not easy to find. This also gives our guests the opportunity to come early and leave their car whilst they go walking and do likewise at the end of their stay. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your Valentines weekend and hope you will visit us again.
