8/10 Very good

3 night stay cut short
We were given room 3, the rose room, for our 3 night stay at c£120 a night. The bathroom wasn’t in the room so we had to leave our room and go round the corner to a bathroom which was used as a shared bathroom even though all other guests had their own bathroom. We spoke with the owners who just said it happens. I wouldn’t say they do room service, there is a number you can text but no menu, no wine allowed upstairs and they stop serving at 10pm. Myself and my other half aren’t big fans of B&B’s but the availability in the area was scarce and this one had lovely reviews. The nearest town is a 10 minute taxi drive, otherwise there is nothing within walking distance. On day 3 there was a leak which meant we couldn’t shower, guests were continuing to use our bathroom and make a mess of it then we were asked to clean it ourselves. We had to checkout 1 day early unfortunately due to my other half having to get back to his work last minute. We were charged full price despite the disruptions to the showers and bathrooms. The rooms were quite small given the cost, we were only given 2 tea bags (English breakfast) despite staying 3 nights which meant we ran out after our first evening and felt uncomfortable to ask as at times it did feel like we were bothering the owners. All in all I won’t be returning nor will I be staying at a B&B again. That said, Gina was lovely and the food was good.

Friendly hosts
Very friendly and welcoming hosts, quiet location. Only two minor irritations, firstly the room was smaller than we would have expected from a five star guest house, e.g. There's was nowhere to sit other than on the bed, secondly the door to our room could not be shut quietly which was important as we did not have an en-suite. However we have since been informed that we had the smallest room and should we go back we will book a different room. Dinner was good and the hosts made a special effort for my husbands birthday. Overall a lovely stay.

Delightful find in Snodonia
We had a very enjoyable overnight stay. Our host was wonderful and attentive. The room was delightful, spacious, clean, and well decorated. Our breakfast was made to order and tasty. The location is unique in a heavily wooded area and a short drive to a great Snodonia historic town, Dollegau. Our only concern was the poor quality of the beds, they need to be upgraded to match the wonderfulness of the property.

This was a great find. Ideally situated for what we wanted to achieve over the weekend. A small family run Country House where we received superb personalised attention, The room albeit fairly small, was nonetheless immaculate and well furnished and presented. Great breakfast too!

This place has everything you could wish for in a country retreat. Exceptionally clean, beautiful scenery, waterfalls , streams and thats just the garden !!! Gina and Gareth are some of the nicest and interesting people i have ever met and are the best hosts you would wish to meet. The local knowledge they have to help you plan your day is exceptional.You feel at ease the minute you book in and always have time to chat and have a laugh.The house its self is so interesting and peaceful.The evening dinner is Gourmet standard that must be tried, the breakfast is a choose of so many options.I could keep writing about this place but the best thing to do is see for yourself i promise you will not be disappointed and like me and the other half cannot wait to return.

What can I say.....Awesome!
What can I say.....Awesome! From the moment we arrived we were treated like the only people staying there, Gareth and Gina couldn't have been more informative or helpful. The surrounding gardens and area are a walkers paradise, I especially loved the disused railway. The recommendations for places to eat were spot on and although not everywhere was open because of it being between Christmas and New Year there was still plenty of choice. The Cross Foxes Fish and Chips were lovely, especially the minted peas! Thanks again Gareth and Gina and hope to see you again, soon. Totsiens! x
