I have stayed before at the Afon gwyn and was a little apprehensive when I read there were new owners. However the new owners continued to maintain the high standards of the previous owners. They were attentive to needs and breakfast exceptional. I will definitely return and strongly recommend it.

Like some other reviewers, we too had stayed at the Afon Gwyn previously and opted to return given the comfort experienced last time round. We were a little apprehensive given new ownership however were reassured within minutes of arrival.

Rana greeted us with a very warm welcome and big smile, showing us to the same room we'd had before. It was as we remembered, albeit with a new stunning bathroom. Gareth was on hand to help plan our days with great tips on places to go and things to do.

The breakfasts were great, not just the food (quality) but also the morning banter betwen guests, sharing stories from the day before and advising each other on best places/routes etc - it was a lovely atmosphere.

If you're planning to visit this area of the world, which is possibly the most stunning, picturesque and most scenic area you'll come across we would strongly recommend the Afon Gwyn for comfort, location and peace of mind - you will be very happy there.

It was sad saying goodbye to Wales and much of this was because we felt we were leaving new friends at the Afon Gwyn and wish Rana and Gareth continued success.

Room Tip: all rooms are large and offer great comfort and value.

We arrived for our second visit to Afon Gwyn and were greeted by the new owners Rana and Gareth - they only just just taken over the guest house the week before, but after 5 minutes we new the attention to detail and customer service had not dropped IT WAS BETTER and after staying for 4 night can safely say the Afon Gwyn is in safe hands!!!
Rana cooks everything to perfection and the fresh fruit platter at breakfast is a nice addition consisting of raspberries blueberries and kiwi.
The rooms were spotless - u would be hard pushed to fault anything
Thanks again Rana u were a wonderful host and know we will definitely return soon.

We have stayed in Betwys Y Coed many times, its our favourite mini break to relax and unwind.
Only intended staying 2 nights but couldn't resist a 3rd.
Beautiful house, with all the comfort you could possibly want.
Excellent breakfast with amazing choice.
New owners Gareth and Rana couldn't be nicer, so helpful and extremely pleasant.
Absolutely sure this is going to be a massive success for them.
We will definately be returning next year if not sooner.
A real gem in a lovely place..

Room Tip: We stayed in Rupurt Room and also Robinson Room, both lovely.

We have just returned from a family walking holiday in Snowdonia and had the great fortune to have booked some rooms in this fabulous house. Rana runs a first class operation and Gareth is the font of all knowledge regarding the best things to do in the area including some of the lesser known peaks. Our three rooms were absolutely superb with top quality everything and their attention to detail is awesome. As an example, not only is there a corkscrew in every room they also give you a wine bottle stopper! Spotlessly clean and attractive throughout, the house is in a tranquil spot really close to the attractions of Betws-y-coed which has a great choice of good quality but reasonably priced places to eat and drink. Our rooms had huge, hot powerful showers in really funky bathrooms and the bedrooms were of an equally high standard with luxury bedlinen and furniture. We especially enjoyed the breakfast choices which go from salmon and scrambled eggs to a full english generous enough to keep you going all day. Usually when you get fresh fruit at breakfast it consists mainly of apples and other low priced fruit but here you get blueberries, kiwi and strawberries. All enjoyed while sitting most comfortably in a lovely conservatory.
We have been lucky and have stayed in good hotels all over the world but have never before got a cuddle from the boss on check out. Relieved to say it was from Rana and not Gareth.
Their prices are amazingly reasonable for this standard of accomodation. Take our advice and make this your first choice.

We have just returned from a six night stay at Afon Gwyn and it was absolutely incredible. From the lovely breakfasts, especially the Belgian waffles, but all choices were fab, to the surroundings, situated in the beautiful Welsh countryside, just minutes from Betws-y-Coed, to the White Room, with a lovely beach feel.
Gareth and Rana were really welcoming and attentive, but in such a way you just felt really relaxed, but they were on hand if you needed anything, including flasks of coffee for daytrips. I knew if I needed anything all I needed to do was ask, and the surroundings within the house were simply luxurious. Our room was tidied every day and had all those little luxuries, that make you feel pampered, biscuits, tea, lots of lovely toiletries, and the gorgeous decor.
We wanted a home from home and we got exactly that, with lots of trips to the Ty Gwyn coaching inn which was also perfect and the food was second to none. I would say anyone going to North Wales has to stay at this lovely guest house because it has to be experienced, this is my first review on trip advisor but I will be telling everyone I know to stay at Afon Gwyn!!

Room Tip: White Room if on a sort of budget, but it is a fab room, the suites for even more luxury, and the sw...

We stayed 3 nights in the Alice Suite in July 2013 and would definitely return. The Alice Suite was a really great size and beautifully furnished. Breakfasts were great and set us up for a good days walking/exploring in the area. Gareth and Rana were always on hand to help out. Rana provided extra towels for a day on the beach and Gareth even volunteered to pop out and give us a lift back from a local restaurant! 5 star in every way!
