We knew we were in for a treat the moment we arrived as Mike welcomed us with a great big pot of tea and cake. Mike and Rachael were excellent hosts throughout and made us feel very at home, even making us another of those giant pots of tea after a rather wet day out. They also provided very useful recommendations of nice places to eat locally.
The b&b itself is beautifully decorated and comfortable and benefits from a great location overlooking a picturesque bridge in the heart of Betws y Coed. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. Particularly enjoyed the homemade granola - I think Mike and Rachael should start a little sideline packaging this up and selling it! Yum.
All together, a lovely place to stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Bryn Afon is an elegant Victorian house situated on the banks of the river Llugwy. We have spectacular views of the River Llugwy and the 500 year old stone Pont-y-Pair bridge where the salmon leap in late Autumn. With forest walks starting from our doorstep and with some of the finest restaurants in Betws y Coed and North Wales just 1 minute's walk away, this really is the perfect base for touring the Snowdonia National Park (or for staying locally to enjoy the beauty of Betws-y-Coed). We are able to assist guests with a variety of suggestions on places to visit – from gentle strolls to strenuous mountain walks, mountain bike trails, castles, slate mines, steam railways, gardens, lakes etc, to shopping or eating locally or finding the best local cake and coffee shop. Bryn Afon is easily accessible by public transport; Betws-y-Coed train station and the bus 'station' - both connecting to LLandudno Junction. The Snowdonia Sherpa Bus enables you explore the area and we also have parking in our own guest car park, plus a secure shed to lock up bikes. ... more less
