The Acorns
Ranked #41 of 47 Betws-y-Coed B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 April 2012

My wife and I stayed for the Easter week-end at the Acorns B&B. The room is located of the first floor of the owners’ house. Owners are very nice and not invasive at all, which worked very well for us.
The house is located along the A5. However it is not too noisy as traffic is very limited after 10PM in this part of the world.
The room is very large, with a king-size bed (with a soft mattress), a sofa area as well as a dining area. Indeed, this B&B does not provide cooked breakfast in the morning, but there is a fridge in the room where you find everything necessary to have a very decent breakfast (milk, orange juice, yogurts, smoked salmon or ham, vast choice of cereals, slices of white/brown bread). There is also a kettle for tea/coffee. The fridge is refuelled every day.
The bathroom is equally very large, but contains only a shower (there is no bathtub). I had trouble having boiling hot water in the morning (I like taking boiling hot showers), but that might not be an issue for most and in the end I settled with a hot shower only!
There is a free Wifi internet connection in the room which is great to plan the next day ahead.
Betws-y-Coed is in the middle of Snowdonia NP, so it is an ideal location for visiting the area, with no place of interest distant more than ½ drive away.
All in all, a very good value for money B&B. Do not expect anything luxurious, but only a cosy “at home” feel.

Spent a couple of nights here and can't praise highly enough. Made very welcome and the suite was enormous. Best place I have stayed in Snowdonia.

After looking at the usual hotels in Betws-y-Coed, my girlfriend and I decided they simply didn't offer enough for the sum of money which they were asking for.
As we were on our second drive round, my girlfriend spotted this innocent looking B&B; and we decided to check it out.
I knew by her face after she came back outside, after the owner kindly let her preview the room, that this was somewhere special.
The room was huge and felt very luxurious. It comprised of a bedroom area with a large bed, a separate living room area with a comfortable sofa and TV, a dining room area with a fully stocked fridge for breakfast, and a luxury bathroom with large shower and lovely sink area.
There was no offer of a cooked breakfast, however there was a wide selection of cereals, bread, eggs, cheese, ham, fruit, juice and muffins available instead.

Overall, a hugely impressive offering that sets the standard for all other B&B;'s. Thanks Bill!
Jeremy & Fleur.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Luxury Suite, there was also an apartment however we didn't see this so can'...

Visited Bewt-y-Coed few times. Always stayed in "stables" (hotel in the center of the village), this time it was fully booked, so me and my patner asked the room in first available B&B. And we were lucky. For the same price as we usually paid we got really nice suite, finished in a very high standart. We stayed only one night, but everything was perfect, fantastic breacfast, I couldn't do better by myself. Next time we'll stay only in The Acorns.

Accommodation at The Acorns is a bed and breakfast suite, which means it is a very large room (in reality, two rooms knocked through) with a bedroom area, TV and sofa area and separate dining area. There is a also a very modern en suite bathroom.

The decor and furnishings were very comfortable, relaxing and spacious.

Other than arrival and departure you don't really get to see the owners as a buffet breakfast is left for you in the fridge in your room. Don't be put off by this. The breakfast was lovely and very plentiful - you won't go hungry. Cereal, fruit juice, muffins or local Bara Brith loaf, toast (a toaster is in the room), cereal bar, tomatoes, ham, cheese, yogurts, fruit etc.

The location is very central for the picturesque town of Betws y Coed - situated set back from the main road - and for exploring Snowdonia. The view is pleasant though not tremendously exciting - beyond the road to fields and distant hills.

Eating options in Betws Y Coed are a little limited, so would recommend the short drive to the Old Ship Inn in Trefriw instead.

All in all a fantastic place to get away from it all, and very relaxing to come back to after a long day in the mountains!
