“Most welcoming.”
Reviewed 9 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Suddenly having to stay in the area for four nights, I was fortunate enough to be accommodated at the Fron Oleu.
From the first phone contact, Shelley (owner) could not have been more welcoming or helpful.
My stay was very comfortable in the very spacious bedroom, which is generously furnished for spending time in.
The choice of breakfasts offered are amazing for a B&B. All expertly prepared by Shelley.
Although my stay was both short notice, and in a damp December, the beauty of the area and Shelleys hospitality have made me want to return, which I hope will be in the near future.

“Simply Perfect.”
Reviewed 23 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Simply perfect. Lovely house, lovely hosts, lovely room, lovely breakfast and lovely location (including the lovely pub/restaurant with lovely food down the road!). We were a little concerned having seen scaffolding on the Google Street View beforehand, however, on arrival we realised it was a view taken a few years ago and the farmhouse is now in perfect shape! A great find, will definitely book again.

“ABSOLUTELY AMAZING FIND...WONDERFUL B&B & FAMILY”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I stayed here for three nights last weekend. Shelley was absolutely lovely and very welcoming with a great cooked breakfast and fantastic hospitality. I would highly recommend it.

The room is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable with a large double bed and settee, great views over the countryside and tea of coffee making facilities.

Great area for walking and sightseeing......we will definitely be going back again next year.

“PERFECTLY PEACEFUL”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Very peaceful and relaxing stay. A really nice quiet spot, beautiful room with everything we needed (including comfy bed).
Excellent breakfasts and great bird wildlife in the garden!
Ideal location for exploring the Llyn Peninsula, its' beaches and coastal walks. Good choice of restaurants & pubs in nearby Criccieth.
