Having stayed in Julies guest house on quite a few occasions,also during the winter periods when working in Wales. She deserves the five stars for comfort cleanliness decor and service. I have also stayed in Criccieth, in hotels and B+Bs, some of good standard and some not so good. The Glyn-y-Coed simply the best. Jeff from Liverpool

Rooms are airy, tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished to a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble, Julie's... More

Very friendly and welcoming. Rooms were to a very good standard and the cleanliness was exceptional. Good choice at breakfast and lovely views if you have a front facing room. Nice lounge area for relaxing.

We took our elderly parents away for a few days. When we arrived at the Glyn-y-Coed Hotel we had a warm welcome and were offered hot drinks.

Excellent location. Highly recommended accommodation. Super room with view of the sea and the castle. Outstanding breakfasts - nothing too much trouble for Julie and her staff - and all with a smile. Great choice of restaurants within walking distance and the location is ideal for exploring the local area.
