My experiences with B&Bs on Anglesey have been very good in the past - particularly in nearby Beaumaris where hosts are warm and bend over backwards to help guests, so my experience at this B&B was unexpected and sad.
Firstly, I do not know what type of boiler is being used in the B&B (I did ask but got no reply) but there was no hot water during my entire two-night stay. I mentioned this but was informed that it was warm enough. The room appeared to be well kept and clean on first inspection, but there was a serious lack of appropriate hoovering, particularly under the bed.
The breakfast was rather uninspiring and some of it, including the cereals and breads, were less than fresh. I was also disappointed and saddened to see that the owners of the B&B not only support the political party UKIP, but have a banner outside on the building facing the road, and stickers in the house. They also appear to hold branch meetings for Anglesey UKIP at the B&B itself. The owners of B&Bs have a right to express their political position, and I have a right to include such a forthright position in a review. But the owners should make this political engagement clearer prior to booking so that I am not forced into a position of having to give money to such people.
This is a fantastic area of Wales, and the B&B is well situated, but the prices charged are too high for the quality of the rooms and the breakfast offered. Thankfully, there are many wonderful hotels and B&Bs close-by.
