Loved our stay, Mary (property manager), was very helpful and bent over backwards to ensure we had an excellent breakfast early in the morning. The room was very clean and the location was perfect! We would definitely come back. Thanks

I highly recommend this delightful B&B in the centre of the old town in Caernarfon. The host was engaging and hospitable. The breakfast buffet was awesome. If you get the chance don't hesitate to stay a while.

Having been to Caernarfon many times and absolutely loving it there I decided to treat my husband to a night away and came across the Cartref on booking.com Upon arrival around half past 1 we were allowed to check into our room early and the gentleman that checked us in was very friendly and welcoming. We stayed in room 1...
