I had a double room (room 2) at the front, with superb views over... More

Bodlawen is very convenient. It's located very near the bridge over to Anglesey, but it is in a very peaceful corner. It is easy to walk down to some lovely shoreline and to drive to many amazing natural and historic sites as well as the Sea Zoo. The guest house was very comfortable, and our hosts were very friendly. Marian... More

This is a good place to stay after Caernafon Castle. Marion Roberts was a gracious hostess, a lovely room with a view of the castle and water. Had a good nights sleep and a lovely breakfast. Next day we continued on to ferry at Holyhead only 25 min drive. Barbara & Neville (Australia)
