“A little gem!”
Reviewed 10 June 2012

This b&b is a little gem and for me is more like a quaint boutique hotel than a b&b. We recieved a very warm welcome from Mike and were shown to the two rooms we had booked which were both full of character and the standard of decor, furnishings was of the highest. Mike was very helpful and informative with the best places to eat ect... and we were delighted with our little 'take out breakfast bags' due to our early start for the climb up Snowdon. Even when we had a slight issue of our key breaking in the lock out of reception hours, we phoned the emergency number and Mike was straight over to sort it out so we could finally put our weary feet up and enjoy the comforts of our room. Unlike many other b&b'/hotels the bed was extremely comfortable, the heating just right and quality of toiletries superb.We both had a full english on the second day and it was delicious, beautifully cooked and no grease to be seen. We would love to return and i'm sure we will be spreading the word to family and friends. Thankyou for making our climbing trip and visit to Betws y Coed even more memorable and enjoyable!

Barbara & Mike allow you into their home... that's what it feels like. Except theirs is exceptionally tidy!!!!

The whole ambiance is just right from the friendly welcome to excellent attention to detail.

This is why we keep going back. Our 12th stay in the last two years.
Thanks for a great weekend.

The Afon View is exactly what you would expect in a lovely B&B in Betws-y-Coed. Comfortable room, comfortable bed, friendly innkeeper and good breakfast. Free wifi and various cable channels on a flat screen. We had room 3, pictured in their selection of shots. Nice room, with a sitting alcove looking out on the hills in front, along with the sheep. Highly recommended over the other rooms, which we also looked at. The inn is a short distance from restaurants and shops in this lovely little town, right on the main drag.

Stayed at Afon View for just one night before moving onto Anglesey for the weekend. I think the lady who greeted us was called Barbara, lovely lady and very polite. The double bedroom was brilliant, not to mention to shower. WOW. I'v been to many a bed and breakfast in my time and I can safely say that it had one of the greatest showers I have ever experienced.

We climbed Snowdon in the day, so it was nice to get back to a nice comfy bed before our trip the next day. The breakfast was great the next morning, I went for the full English which was yummy. The sausages were fantastic!

All in all, Betws y Coed was a pleasant surprise and we will definitely be returning to Afon View in the near future!
