We were a party of 3 and booked the 3 bed family room. Rooms were very well furnished and the house very historic and quaint. Very nicely decorated and the usual sumptuous welsh breakfast. Hosts were very friendly and offered lots of suggestions for eating and walking. Driveway is a little difficult to manuver but worth the effort. Highly recommended.

Nice quiet property in lovely grounds, but close to the amenities and attractions in Betws-y-Coed. Great base to explore Snowdonia. Our room was warm and cosy (in October!) with a huge comfy bed.

We had arrived this past week in Betws-y-Coed without a booking and were very fortunate that Glyntwrog House had one room available. While only there for one evening unfortunately, Glyntwrog and our most genial hosts Ian and Janet were very accomodating, with a wealth of information on the area and a most delicious breakfast! Sorry we couldn't stay longer. Slightly... More
