“best guest house ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

I spend a lot of time travelling and go to a lot of Guest houses and bed and breakfasts, this is by far and away the best one l have ever stayed in. great people, great rooms, great breakfast. I also never write reviews so it has to be extra special for me to go to the trouble of reviewing! Thanks Mike and Barbara

Room Tip: no tips all the rooms are first class!!

I am very happy I found this gem. We had a very frienldy welcome. The two rooms we booked were both comfortable and clean. Plenty to choose at breakfast which was extremely tasty. Would highly recommend this guest house if you are thinking of visiting Betws-y-coed.

Just come back from a lovely break in Betwsy-y-Coed. We stayed in Afon View, what a beautiful guest house, really cosy and relaxing. Non fussy check-in, shown to our room where we had everything we needed. A well cared for home and really clean. We went for a few walks in the woods around the village and ate in the Ty Gwyn where we had a lovely meal in a relaxing atmosphere. We also ate in the Ponty Pair Pub where the food was good. We will definitely be returning soon .........

Room Tip: New four poster room is lovely

Trusted the fabulous reviews and were certainly not disappointed. In fact it still far exceeded our expectations. We chose the four poster room for our romantic break in this amazing location. We could not find fault, the hospitality, cleanliness and homely feel with the roaring fire means we will be rushing back as soon as we get the opportunity. I would not hesitate to recommend Afon View to anyone as I am sure they will share our opinion.

Room Tip: The four poster room is luxurious.

We stayed for two nights in room two. We had a lovely stay however there were a few negative points. The positives were it was in a great location and was clean, new and modern.There was a good selection for breakfast and it all was cooked very well. However my breakfast order was wrong on one morning. I understand this could have been sent back, but as we had to check out by ten this would not have left much time.
We found the bathroom a struggle I understand it was a small ensuite but my husband could hardly fit in the shower. Also we got the impression that we did not receiving the same attention as the other guests. I thought this may have been because we were in the cheaper room.

Overall we did have a good stay, and would recommend it.

Afonview, Owner at Afon View Guest House, responded to this review, 23 March 2014
We are greatly concerned that you thought you did not receive the same attention as our other guests due to being in our cheapest room. We treat everyone with the same respect and care.
We pride ourselves on our high rate of repeat business and it would not be in our interest to treat anybody differently, as you must appreciate.
Room 2 does have a small en-suite and this is reflected in the pricing of the room. When booking over the telephone we make a point of explaining this. When booking on the internet via our website it is explained in the room description. Again we have many guests who repeatedly book Room 2 because of its bright modern appearance.
With regard to breakfast we are sorry that we got the order wrong, this could have been easily rectified. We would never want any of our guests to feel that they could not ask us for anything or to feel that they are being rushed.
Thank you for recommending Afon View despite the negative points.

Absolutely brilliant stay as always, Mike and Barbara cannot offer enough to make our stay pleasurable. Lovely and clean and the decor is sumptuous, the real fire is an extra treat after a wet and windy day out walking ! Would definitely recommend their guest house to anyone staying nearby. Thank you again and we will see you soon. :-)'

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful, take your pick !

A group of friends and I who met on holiday in Italy booked a reunion in this lovely guesthouse on what turned out to be a hot bank holiday weekend. We were amazed at how easy it was to find the location, which is a short walk away from all the amenities this lovely village has to offer. Our rooms were clean and modern with views to enjoy. Breakfast throughout our stay set us up for our various planned walks - with the added bonus of ordering a value for money packed lunch from our patrons Barbara and Mike. We had hoped to book again this year for our next reunion, and are not surprised to discover our weekend of choice is already fully booked up! However we are planning other options so we can enjoy Betws y Coed once again and conquer Mount Snowdon at the same time :-)
