Due to the uncertain weather we left the booking until we were already in North Wales. We researched several guesthouses in the Betws-Y-Coed area just in case one or more should be full. The Bryn Bella stood out as a favourite from previous reviews but also had off-road parking for my van as it was a working trip. The initial call at 09.15 was friendly and welcoming whilst the details were given etc. Joan greeted us on our arrival at around 6pm and was equally welcoming. We chatted easily as she showed us to the room which was perhaps a little on the small side with its en-suite but still very comfortable and adequate for one night. Little touches like the tucked in toilet tissue and ring holder as well as the microwave showed that a lot of thought and attention had gone into making everyone's stay as comfortable as possible. These things ARE very much appreciated.
The room was spotlessly clean and perfect and the bed very comfortable for an excellent night's sleep. There was no outside noise from passing traffic.
Breakfast added to the delight of the stay. We were able to sit at the bay window with it's view over Betws-y-Coed and watch the wild birds feeding from an array of devices. The breakfast was excellent with good choice and served promptly. Mark was very attentive but never imposing and always helpful. He was only too willing to point out a scenic route for a trip through Snowdonia on our way back to South Wales and highlight some potential road hazards.
It was our first stay in North Wales, sadly only for one night. If my work should take me back to that area we will stay at the Bryn Bella without any second thought......that is if they have room! Mark and Joan are a charming couple and we can't recommend the BB highly enough.
