Hello Carl,

Well done on completing another gruelling Snowdon Marathon and thank you for taking time to review us. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the single room worked for you. We are planning some modification to our single room this winter and hopefully you will approve of the changes we will have made if you come back next year.

All the best
Sarah & Mark

We have thoroughly enjoyed two visits to The Ferns Guest House now. It really is wonderful value compared to some of the other accommodation in Betws-y-Coed. Sarah and Mark are friendly and helpful, they are always ready to offer their assistance. They even managed to provide a gluten free breakfast for one of our party. Well worth a stay!

We were met with a lovely welcome from Sarah & Mark. Our room was really nice and the house was tastefully decorated. Breakfast were fine and plentiful, and we found the location ideal for visiting the beautiful area of Snowdonia. A good choice of eating places were nearby and Betws-y-Coed has some nice shops and places of interest. We would not hesitate to stay at the Ferns at any time in the future.

Had a fantastic 3 night stay at The Ferns back in May this year. Great hosts who kindly allowed us to check in and drop our bags off at 9am, en-route to our walk up Snowdon. Previous reviews for this place are spot on and it definitely deserves it's fantastic ratings. A warm, comfortable, well appointed, spotlessly clean room; superb breakfast with excellent choice; friendly, helpful hosts and a perfect location close to the centre to the village, only a minute's walk to various eating/drinking options. We ate at the Stables (cheap'ish and cheerful with good food and a buzzy atmosphere) and Ty Gwyn (a bit pricier but superb food and a lovely ambience). The Ferns will definitely be our first choice when we return to Betws-y-Coed.

Sarah and Mark made me very welcome, offering me a cup of tea and cake after a hard day's climbing in the mountains, which was much appreciated. The location is very close to town. Breakfast was exactly what I needed to set me up for my day in the mountains. Brilliant porridge, especially with the treacle! I would certainly stay here, again, and highly recommend it.

Sarah and Mark are great hosts and have thought of everything. The comfortable guest lounge has lots of info about the local area, including menus for the restaurants. It was also really helpful for us that the up to date mountain weather forecast was displayed every morning. The house is beautiful and the rooms are very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. The Ferns is a great bed and breakfast with a warm welcome. It is good value for money and we would definately stay again if returning to Betws - y -coed.
