“Quality bed and breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in July and had a lovely stay. The rooms are gorgeous, decorated to a high standard and absolutely spotless. We were requested to remove our shoes as the carpets are cream but slippers are thoughtfully provided.
The breakfasts are excellent with lots of choice and it was pleasant to talk to the other guests in the morning.
The location is quiet as it is approximately half a mile outside Betws-y-coed. We arrived quite late around 9pm on Friday night and were sent to try the local Indian restaurant in Llanrwst. However we discovered The Old Tannery Restaurant instead where we had such a good meal that we went back on the second night. A word of warning for the area..drivers should be aware of speed traps on the local roads...

We stated here for two nights in July 2014 and found the place was a pleasure to stay. Gareth and his wife could not have been more helpful. The breakfast was plentiful and enjoyable. The room was fantastic. My wife suffers from a bad back so we were offered a down stairs room so she would not have walk up the stairs. The bed was very comfortable and the ensuit was large and clean.
I would recommend this establishment to every one and will do so in the future.

We have not stayed at a B&B for decades as we always stay at 5 star hotels. Afon Gwyn Country House looked so lovely from their website so we gave it a try. What a beautiful place! It's everything and more of what the website promises. Rana and Gareth were wonderful hosts and Rana's cooking was superb. Everything is designer here, even the crockery. Sleep quality is excellent because the rooms are well insulated. The attention to detail is very apparent everywhere. Our thanks go to Rana and Gareth for making our stay so special.

Room Tip: We were shown all the rooms and they are all excellent. It's impossible to be disappointed.

Stayed in the spacious Alice suite which was absolutely lovely. Some personal touches such as the hand made soap in the bathroom and a tray of tea and biscuits in arrival brought by the owner.
Carpets are cream throughout so he kindly requests that shoes to be removed which was not a problem. Slippers are given complimentary which we went to breakfast in. Breakfast requests are made the previous evening on a form by the front door.
Breakfast itself was perfect. Huge portions of the cooked breakfasts and lots of choice. Cereals, fruits, toasts- everything you could think of.
We stayed only for 1 night after walking up snowdon but would love to stay again when in the area.

Afon Gwyn Country House, is a must stay! My wife and I would not hesitate to book again and already intend to go back at some time in the future. Selfishly I would like to keep this lovely gem to myself but the hosts are such wonderful people that they are deserving of the praise lavished upon them.From the first moment to the last we were made to feel so much at home and absolutely nothing was too much trouble
Ideally situated on the outskirts of Betws Y Coed there is easy access to all corners of the incredible region of Snowdonia.
Wonderful room, slept soundly, and exquisite breakfasts served in immaculately decorated conservatory was a delightful start to the day.
Afon Gwyn Country House is a special place but made all the more special by the hosts Gareth and Rana.
Without hesitation recommended to all.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Robinson room, on ground floor with access to the garden at the rear, added to the...

We cannot recommend the Afon Gwyn Country House and its hosts enough. The house is set in beautiful surroundings; with extremely welcoming hosts for who nothing was too much trouble; the accommodation was to a;high standard of decor and cleanliness, with such attention to detail throughout. The quality of the breakfasts were outstanding. We hope to re-visit when next in North Wales and will definitely recommend it to all family and friends.

Room Tip: All rooms had aspects to be recommended, and all were to a very high standard.

My husband and I have just returned to Canada from Wales.One of the highlights of our trip was our 4 nights stay at Afon Gwyn Country House.Gareth and Rana are exceptional hosts, from the moment we arrived until we left made us so welcome.We stayed in the White room, witch was decorated in a perfect balance, the tray with delicious treats were a lovely touch as were the generous toiletries in the bathroom. breakfast in the sunny conservatory was the highlight of the day with fresh fruit, juice homemade yogurt, full English.We would highly recommend this B&B to all our friends, and hopefully we we return in the not too distance future.
