“Can't get any better”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Wonderful to look at and wonderful inside. Spotlessly clean, attention to detail, down to a teapot in the room and it didn't drip! I mentioned I didn't want mushrooms so was offered an extra egg (this doesn't happen in all places). Very polite hotelier who even helped with the luggage, again that doesn't happen very often. The room was just as it was in the picture so not a disappointment. They definitely have a flair for décor.

Room Tip: We stayed in number 2. It was perfect.

I cannot express how lovely, welcoming and warm the owners are, also knowledgeable of the area for food and attractions. When welcomed into the property, we were greeted by Chris who showed us to our rooms, we weren't let down. It was decorated with air of masculinity (so men you won't feel bogged down with female influences) with decadent touches of feminiety. Its perfectly balanced for him and her. Inside the wardrobe you will find comfortable and warm robes to help nudge you into a sense of relaxation. The bathroom is contemporary with an amazing power shower, all enclosed and accommodating enough for the more so rubenesque of us. Every touch has been carefully decided and thought out. I felt so at ease in the environment. I thoroughly enjoyed my nights sleep, it was peaceful, perfect temperature with (for those whom it matters to) a firm mattress. One pointer, on the bed you have two pillows each, I find far too many hotels only offer 1, and if two isn't enough, there is one more at the base of the wardrobe. The room, top to bottom was impeccably clean, linen was fresh, towels where fluffy, glass was spotless, wood was imacculate. This hotel, for the room alone is value for money. Breakfast was extremely tasty, thick cut bacon, local sausage and no oily eggs! Pet peeve of mine is oily eggs. Also toast and breakfast muffins where included amongst cereals and fruit juices. The hotelier's, are for one, competent in their position and are lovely people. Extremely easy to talk to, warm, welcoming and just brilliant at what they do. Bigger chains could do with your guidance. You will see us again, thank you for a lovely night x

This was our 5th visit it Ellingham House and as the 4 previous times, had a very relaxing time. The hosts are gracious and welcoming, the rooms are spotlessly clean, breakfast is excellent and it's perfect. Highly recommend this superb Victorian guest house!

Bed and Breakfast that really is '5 star!!', perfect hosts, perfect accommodation, spotlessly clean and decorated to a very high standard throughout. We stayed in room 1, it was gorgeous with a huge four poster bed, tea and coffee making facilities, a sofa and free wifi! The en-suite was clean and modern with bath and large shower. We will definitely stay here again to sample the mouth watering 'Welsh breakfast' and to say hello to the gracious hosts Ian and Chris.

We have just returned from a night away here and I have to say I could easily have stayed longer and wished we had !!
From the moment we entered you could tell the cleanliness of the hotel was very high and our room was elegant and spacious and certainly felt like we were in a top class hotel.
The location was lovely and peaceful and certainly made our weekend. Chris and Ian (the hosts) could not have been more charming and the breakfast provided was superb and set us up for our day ahead.
I would certainly recommend this hotel and will book again for when we are next in the area.

Room Tip: We had room number 1 and this was very spacious and with a lovely large en-suite as well.

Ellingham House

Cheerfully ring the playful sounding bell,
The charming old lady from 1897,
With golden framed paintings from castle and bay,
Says "Welcome, you're in heaven".

The sound of seagulls is caressing your ear,
Open your eyes, in linen cosy and warm,
"Welsh breakfast - coffee or tea my dear?"
Out you go, exploring Snowdonia's charm.

It's Ian and Chris pampering thee,
Whilst invisible Megan adds mystery,
A B&B where your soul is welcome to be,
Feel how life can become poetry.

Once time comes to depart,
Here remains part of your heart.
