I booked a 2 night mid-week stay at very short notice 'on spec' - which turned out to be my most enjoyable short-break ever in Britain. My room was excellent, with almost new en-suite facilities and lots of relevant and really useful local information The cooked Welsh breakfast on both mornings was quite simply exceptional and, frankly, far superior to what is offered in many city centre 4- Star Hotel chains my company books me into for business trips. The Fern's hosts, Mark & Sara, are a lovely couple - genuinely welcoming and friendly with all their guests, and well experienced in local knowledge concerning attractions and where to eat in the evening. They even inform guests in advance of arrival (via Twitter and email) of local weather conditions which may affect their journey and climbing conditions for Snowdon - which was particularly useful last week when much of Snowdonia resembled Antarctica! I heartily recommend The Ferns in Betws-y-Coed, with its genuine customer service ethos, and will most certainly be returning.
