“Perfect! An absolute gem!”
Reviewed 10 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The most beautiful little b&b we have ever seen! The room, location, breakfast and service were perfect. Shelley couldn't have done anymore for us and her breakfast is to die for! The room was spotless, spacious and the bed was superb. We would recommend this little place to anyone and will 100% be booking again next year! Don't waste any more time reading reviews, book now! Thanks Shelley! X

“Stunning Room with views and AMAZING breakfast and hospitality”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

My boyfriend and I spent 2 nights at Fron Oleu and from the minute we pulled up outside we were greeted with a warm homely welcome, which continued throughout our stay. The room was absolutely stunning... stylish and immaculate, set in a peaceful environment with beautiful views from both the balcony and the kitchen table at breakfast. The location is great in terms of it being very central to lots of attractions ie Port Merion, beaches etc. The only thing I would say is if you want to go out for dinner you'll need to drive or pay quite a bit in a taxi as the restaurants are quite far out. Providing you're ok with that I would thoroughly recommend it. I can't wait to go back!!

“Absolutely stunning - stay nowhere else on your visit to the Lleyn”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We are absolutely thrilled to have discovered this gem on a place in north wales. We have stayed in many b&bs around the world and this definitely ranks as one of the best.

The warm welcome from Shelley & Adam was wonderful and the plate of welsh cakes in the room was a lovely touch. The suite has a private access and the double doors of a Juliette balcony look out onto the rolling countryside. It is so peaceful and away from it all yet such great and convenient access to both the Lleyn and Snowdonia/Anglesey.

We really hope to return one day wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in that area.

Thank you Shelley and Adam!!

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at Fron Oleu for 2 nights in May. After a long, wet ride on the motorbike from Cambridge we were greeted with the warmest welcome and a well needed cup of tea. Hosts Shelley and Adam have created the perfect one room B&B which was an unexpected surprise, and along with their friendly chat and Shelley's delicious breakfast we simply cannot fault it. The room was beautiful and the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in! A must stay for sure. I hope one day we will return.

“AN IDEAL FIND FOR A WEEKEND AWAY”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is one of the best B & B's we have stayed in. We had 2 nights here and the hosts Shelley & Adam were wonderful. They made us very welcome into their lovely house. We felt very special being the only guests here as there is just the one room. We were attended to extremely well. The room is very spacious and exceptionally clean. The breakfasts were perfectly cooked with a selection to choose from. The bed was heaven to sleep in, and waking up in this peaceful place to view the wonderful scenery whilst still in bed, was a real bonus! Lovely area for walks and lots of fresh air. Thank you we will come again.

“What a hidden gem - absolutely fabulous !!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

Stayed 4 nights from 17 April. We were met by Shelley who is very warm and welcoming showed us where breakfast would be served .... then showed us our room which was beautiful and spacious. Spotlessly clean as was the en-suite. Breakfast excellent using local produce. We had the Welsh breakfast each morning but there was plenty of choice if you didn't want this.
We wouldn't stay anywhere else if we are in that area. There is only the one room for 2 persons which gives the whole experience an extremely personal touch.
Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

ps we have stayed many places but this is the first time we have felt compelled to write a review.
