The hosts are really nice people, but the place and our room (room 3) really need a good old scrub. The lobby smells of a thousand cooked breakfasts and wet dog! Painted surfaces are chipped grubby and many old cob webs high up. Carpets are dusty eg at the top of the first flight of stairs where the door hinges...

Despite the place being in need of a bit of tlc, you can't knock the cleanliness of the beds and bathrooms. The welcome from Katie (and Lexi!) was warm and friendly , and Steves breakfasts are fantastic! We would definitely stay again, especially now we know we can take the dogs!

The B&B is located in a prime position on the sea front. On entering the B&B it was immediate that the place needed quite a bit of TLC. The front of Crystal House was tatty with a very rusty go cart lying around . We booked two rooms and both rooms were not the cleanest. The room had obviously been...

Stopped here in June, took the dog, hosts very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and everything worked, breakfast was lovely. B&B was directly opposite the part of the beach you could take the dog and a short walk from the center of barmouth. Parking was free around the B&B area so look before you pay. Around the town we...

The B&B is a bit 'tired and emotional' but it was clean, quiet and in a great location. The owners are lovely and welcoming. Just what we needed after a long day on the mountains. We will definitely go back - and look forward to it. Great breakfast also!!

Good location, right at the promenade and not from railway station. Good hostess too. Katie was helpful in giving suggestions on what to see. It was also nice that she got me some soya milk (allergic to cow's milk). Also enjoyed breakfast, but tomatoes from a thin (seriously?)... The house and front yard were disorderly.
