Beautiful views, comfortable rooms and tasty breakfasts, what more could you want? Lovely walk from the front door down to the Estuary too. The staff, Sarah and John, couldn't have been more helpful, and provided lots of useful adfvice on what to see and do, and where to eat in the vicinity. We booked 3 rooms for 5 adults, and...

My boyfriend and I just back from a long weekend staying in the Caban at Graig Wen. It far exceeded our expectations, the Caban had a great little log fire and a little stove indoors ideal for cooking. There was an outdoor fire area - although a bit disappointing that it wasn't near the seating area as it didn't warm...

Spent two nights here last week. Welcomed with a lovely hot drink and biscuits and our room was perfect. We stayed in Bran and the view across the estuary was stunning. Would recommend and would visit again.

Spacious room with lovely view. Good selection for breakfast, well cooked. Liked the 'sociable seating' - 6 to a table encouraging conversation with other guests. Sarah and John were very attentive and thoughtful hosts. Honesty bar and shop was an excellent idea. We were lucky to be staying at Graig Wen on night of lunar eclipse and had an excellent...

We have stayed on the campsite several times, the b and b and now rented accommodation for a 3 night break, so its fair to say we are big fans of Graig Wen. We love the location, the natural beauty of the setting and how this is sensitively and stylishly maintained. The attention to detail is superb. Great honesty shop,...

Stayed in the Yurt for 3 nights, provided everything we needed - great access to the estuary, the hills and to peace and quiet. John and Sarah great hosts with really useful local knowledge. Hot croissants a lovely surprise. Car access to yurts tight, might be useful to include in information.

The Slate Shed is everything it says on the website. Our room was beautifully decorated, comfortable and very contemporary, but without hiding the history and character of the building. The food was really tasty and lovely to have a menu with flair and versatility - not just the standard cooked breakfast. We were lucky enough to have a room overlooking...
