At many hotels and guest houses we are made to feel welcome, but at The Railway Cottage, Ros and Dusty really went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed. Although not straightforward to find we were given excellent directions and drove straight there. The bed was comfortable and the tasty cooked breakfast was special because the...

By far the best B&B I’ve ever stayed in, the accommodation is attached to the main house but has a separate entrance via it’s own conservatory. The room was clean and well stocked the owners have thought of everything e.g. TV, DVD & DVDs, CD player, books, microwave & tea/coffee etc… The beds are really comfortable with large en-suite bathroom,...

This B&B was a lovely surprise. Just a couple of miles from Bala town but away from any noise. The bedroom is a more like a small apartment with its own bathroom, conservatory sitting area and garden, even a small kitchenette with microwave and fridge. Ideal if you are walking and need to keep your picnic items cool. The beds...

We visited Ros and Dusty's wonderful b and b mid June and had a marvellous visit. Cannot praise it highly enough.Delightful hosts, Ros and Dusty think of everything their guests might want, even supplying books and DVDs as well as a fridge and microwave.
