This is a good quality traditional BRITISH Guest House, where the breakfasts are awesome and the customer service is erm... eccentric. Martin has always been brilliant with us but it makes us laugh the way he deals with some folks. This was our second stay and we'll be back in May. Treat Martin with respect and you'll find him an engaging and helpful soul. Bedrooms clean and well decorated, good shower and a central location.

Room Tip: Make arrangements by email.

My sons and I arrived with some trepidation after some of the past reports about Martin. He was there to welcome us at the door and from then on he could not have been more helpful. Sally was incapacitated (after a recent operation) and therefore Martin was running the show and I tell you, he cooks a great breakfast! He advised us on everything from where to eat, where to buy maps, how when and where to get the bus and which routes to take up and down Snowdon. The rooms were very clean and warm and the location of Erw Fair is perfect to walk everywhere (we did not move the car from when we arrived). All in all, it was a tremendous 3 days! Well done Martin..........

We stayed here a couple of weeks back, all went reasonably well until breakfast when my friend's eggs were not cooked enough for her. She requested they have a few more seconds in the microwave and received a John Clease type response. A haughty 'I will chuck them in the bin ...............' from Martin.
Anyway they did reappear more cooked whether this was via the bin who knows. But an OTT melodramatic response to a polite request from a guest.
Unless we feel like experiencing this behaviour again which is extremely unlikely we won't be returning.

Stayed for 6 nights and was made to feel very welcome throughout, accommodation was perfectly adequate and clean. breakfasts were delicious and didn't scrimp on quality of ingredients or portion size.
Location is perfect for all the shops and various restaurants/cafes/ bars in Llanberis and all the activities you could expect to find in Snowdonia.
my wife does suffer from cat allergies occasionally and considering the huge fluff balls the 2 resident cats are we couldn't find a single cat hair anywhere, suffice to say she didn't suffer once.
I would stay here again.

We stayed here as a family of 4 in the family room up in the attic. We felt a bit claustrophobic in this room and had a small bathroom next door to the room. This was fairly clean although, I did notice a thick layer of dust on top of the bin.
The male proprietor was very frosty and told my teenagers to "leave the cats alone". We had a takeaway one evening but didn't feel that we could go back to our b&b to eat it. The best thing about our stay was the amazing breakfast. I would not stay here again.
