“Lovely place to stay - relax”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Clare & Sian are relaxed and helpful hosts at the Bron Rhiw, which has proved a lovely place to stay for our walking group. The walking group is a mixed bag of ages & characters. We have stayed at various places over the years and if there is one thing we all agree on it's to stay in a place that is clean & tidy, has comfy beds and plenty of hot water for showers & baths after a long day walking. The bar has a good selection of bottled beers & ciders as well as other interesting bottles. There is also a decent breakfast with various choices to set you up for the day. This is why we continue to return to the Bron Rhiw. For those wanting an evening meal Clare or Sian will be able to tell you what is avialble. For pub grub we've found both The Castle & The Prince of Wales do good fare and The Poachers is a nice restaurant for more formal dining. All these are a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Bron Rhiw. So relax.

Bron Rhiw is situated a 2 minute walk away from Cricieth town centre, and we chose to stay there based on its excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. It was also one of the more reasonable options we found in the Snowdonia region at £77 per room per night for bed and breakfast.

Bron Rhiw was easy to find and we were able to park easily in the building's little car park which was tucked away from the main road. We were greeted by one of the friendly owners straight away who made us feel very welcome. When I mentioned that I was pleased that they provided hot chocolate sachets in the rooms as I don't drink tea or coffee, she promptly brought me another four! I was correct in thinking that this personalised service was a good indication as to how the rest of the weekend would pan out.

The rooms at Bron Rhiw are lovely and homely and contain everything you could possibly need for a little holiday. They even supply a hairdryer in each room which can be rare in bed and breakfast establishments, and certainly very rare in a budget hotel. Everything was absolutely pristine, and my bathroom was gleaming. I was also very impressed with how soft and fluffy the towels were!

I was very excited about trying the breakfast at Bron Rhiw as we'd read such good reviews on Trip Advisor. Breakfast was served between 8 and 9am, and we could choose whatever we fancied from their breakfast menu. They also had a selection of cereals, fruit and juices available for guests. I loved their little dining room and all the unique touches that made it so welcoming. Again, everything about the room and its set up was immaculate!

I'm a bit awkward when it comes to a full English breakfast as I don't like mushrooms, tomatoes or black pudding. I therefore chose to have various combinations of bacon, eggs, beans and sausage on the three days. All the food was sourced from local suppliers and you could really taste the superior quality... I especially loved the bacon. We had the choice to have our eggs fried, scrambled or poached and could also choose white or wholemeal toast. My partner tried their smoked salmon and scrambled eggs combination twice and loved it.

Bron Rhiw didn't just look impressive inside... the exterior was also very pretty and welcoming, and the owners clearly put a lot of effort into the upkeep of the building.

We spoke to the owners, Claire and Sian, quite a few times during our stay. They were so friendly and knowledgeable about the area, as well as being able to cook an amazing breakfast! I actually prefer to stay in a B&B / guesthouse rather than a hotel as it's quite rare to experience this attentive and homely service in a hotel.

I would definitely recommend this B&B to everyone and would certainly consider staying there again if we go back to North West Wales in the future.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at this excellent B&B. The room and en suite were immaculate and very comfortable. The breakfast is wonderful and really sets you up for the day exploring this beautiful corner of Wales.
The hosts are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. If you are visiting this part of North Wales this is the place to stay.

my partner and i stayed here for 3 nights over the bank holiday weekend. we go on a few weekends away and i can honestly say this is the best B&B ive ever stayed in ! The rooms are spacious and decorated to a high standard and exceptionally clean, even the en suite was so spotless it looked as though it had just been fitted before we arrived! white fluffy clean towels were replaced every morning along with the little extras that make the difference like tea, coffee hot chocolate and biscuits in the room. After a night in the comfortable beds we went down for an amazing cooked breakfast with options of cerials , juices, toast, tea or coffee all served up with a smile from the owners. It was a great base from to do all the coastal walking we wanted or just spend a day in the lovely town of criccieth. we would definately reccommend this lovely B&B to anyone wanting to visit the area

Stayed for three nights over Easter and enjoyed the stay. Highlights included the huge breakfast's and the very hospitable owner. Everything was very clean, well kept and the towels/room where replaced/tidied each day. The downside was that the bed was a bit creaky and the shower had an average to low water pressure, but both were very warm.

Stayed here with a friend for 2 nights when we were visiting snowdon.

We were very later than expected when arriving this was no problem at all for them and they gave us a choice of rooms followed by some excellent advice on trekking up to snowdon the next day.

Room was spacious very clean woke up the next morning to in my opinion the best breakfast i have ever had at any hotel i have stayed in.

Will for certain stay at this place again if in the area

Room Tip: Look no further this is a great place

My wife and I have just returned from a weekend in North Wales and every word regarding the standards, location and especially the breakfasts are true. The owners are lovely, have impeccable standards and are very knowledgable of the area. Our room was on the top floor, no problem, and nicely finished, immaculately clean and the bed comfortable. What more could you want? And then there is the breakfast! Enough said! We will stay again, thanks ladies.
