“Wonderful Host”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

We arrived at the Glyn-y-Coed hotel after a long journey. Julie the owner greeted us with a warm welcome and a drink on the patio. Our room was very nicely decorated and the bed very comfortable. The views over the sea and Castle are wonderful. One of the mornings we were going to walk up Snowdon and Julie very kindly gave us an early breakfast to set up up for the day. She also recommended the places to eat in the local area, all of which were within a 5 min walk. Julie is really super host and will give you lots of information if you need it on places to visit. We had a super time here.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1

Not only is this everything you would wish of a great B&B you can also add in the Julie factor.
Julie, who owns the hotel, must surely be the most caring and energetic of hosts and her enthusiasm and obvious love of the area is infectious. Just stay for a couple of nights and you will discover what I mean.

Room Tip: Choose a first floor room if you're not quite so agile as you used to be.

Can only echo the last two reviews, absolutely spotless accommodation, lovely position and breakfasts were excellent. Julie even lent us an ordanance survey map and told us the best places to visit, many we wouldn't have found on our own. Would certainly return. Can only say they go the extra mile to make the stay perfect.

This a first class little B&B, the owner Julie made it extra special by her attention to detail and willingness to ensure you didn't miss any of the attractions nearby. Cannot speak highly enough of the place.

Room Tip: Only stayed in one room and that was first-class but light sleepers might prefer a rear facing room...

WE spent 2 nights here and found the owner Julie and other staff very friendly. On our arrival on a very hot day we were offered tea/coffee on the patio. The place is very clean and the breakfasts
are excellent. The location is walking distance from the castle/prom and restaurants. I would definitely recommend.

We spent 2 days here and found the owner Julie very helpful and welcoming.The rooms were stylish and clean and the breakfast well cooked. We can't praise this Hotel highly enough.Julie recommended places to have an evening meal and we found both excellent. The area has lots to do and we would certainly stay at this Hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room where you can see both the sea and the castle

Just returned from a couple of days break in this wonderful hotel. We stayed here a few years ago and it was outstanding then, hence our return. Glyn-y-Coed is on the main road, plenty of parking and within easy walking distance of the shops, beautiful promenade and restaurants.

The hotel is tastefully decorated throughout, the dining room and lounge are light and bright and there are tables and chairs in the front garden to enjoy some outside space. Our room was spacious and comfortable (room 7) on the top floor, tastefully decorated with a good bathroom including bath and shower, with a great selection of toiletries. This hotel is spotlessly clean throughout.

The breakfast is superb with a large selection of cereals, fruit and yoghurt and to follow a substantial cooked breakfast with as much toast as you would like together with jams and marmalade.

Julie, the owner, makes you feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Julie for a lovely stay.

If you have never visited this part of Wales before, you don't know what you are missing. Criccieth is a beautiful town and the surrounding areas are stunning. We were blessed with fantastic weather.

Don't hesitate book now!
