“Hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2011

We've stayed here many times both B&B and in the lovely self catering cottage while our daughter was at Bangor uni. We returned again this year after a gap of two years. It really is a lovely tranquil place to stay. Every comfort is offered, furnishings are high quality and the welcome from the on site owners is extremely warm. The site is lovely with a beautiful lake and lots of nearby walks along the wonderful River Ogwen.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2010

A wonderfully warm welcome was our greeting at this B&B which is situated in its own extensive and beautiful grounds, a veritable oasis of tranquility. The room was extremely comfortable and its en suite shower-room was first class, in fact one of the best we have used. It is literally on the door-step of the best mountains in Snowdonia as well as the Menai coast and Anglesey. Highly recommended. Access for the disabled and self-catering accommodation are also located on this site.
