We booked Plas Gwyn more or less by chance and didn't know what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised, particularly considering the very reasonable price per night.
The b&b is in a quite substantial house similar to all others in the small town, which has been refurbished to a very high standard inside. Our bedroom had a brand new ensuite-bathroom, multi-channel TV and a small fridge, (with fresh milk for tea and coffee), in the antique wardrobe, where we could also keep chilled a bottle of champagne we had bought!
The room was otherwise carefully furnished with other very attractive antique items, and traditional features also abounded elsewhere throughout the house, the centre-piece being the beautiful, Grade-II listed wooden staircase. A generous cooked-breakfast was served around a large antique table, in a fine dining-room full of other attractive objects continuing the period theme. The hosts could not have been more helpful and welcoming, while at the same time not being over-the-top! The location is also very good, being in a quiet place, but with many great restaurants a minute away in the town-centre. Just two points might need a little further consideration: tall guests (unlike us) might find the bed rather short in our room, and I found the TV quite hard to operate.
In particular, I'd like to thank the hosts for generously mailing to me a travel-book I had left there. On a personal note, I was slightly anxious, in such a rural place, about finding a b&b where gay visitors would feel welcome, but on this occasion was very pleased to find I had no need to be at all!
I understand this is a new enterprise, and I'd like to wish the owners every success, which they deserve!
