The extra touches like eggs from their chickens, proper coffee and even watching birds on the feeders when having my breckfast
Breakfast was very nice and good choice, bed was very comfortable and it was quiet. It was nice to sit in the conservatory to look in the beautiful garden
It was wonderful and we wish we had booked to stay longer. Everything you could possibly want is provided and we had a great nights sleep. Other hotels and B and B's would do well to visit the Railway Cottage to see how it should be done!
Nothing to dislike!
A lovely warm welcome Beautiful hotel in a very good location. Thanks
The couple went above and beyond to make our weekend break one to remember. They provided recommendation on places to visit which made our holiday. The location was peaceful and the room was cosy. The breakfast was lovely and I would definitely recommend this place to others visiting sites around Bala
The fresh eggs were a great addition to the amazing breakfast the couple made us. The place is also really beautiful and is really cozy.
Everything about Railway Cottage was fantastic Ros and Dusty have put so much work and thought into making their guests feel welcome and at home in their beautiful Guest House,everything was catered for.Perfect. Breakfast was enormous..Bird life in the garden was fascinating. Can't praise them enough for their hospitality and they're a really interesting couple. Hope they don't take this has a threat but we'll be back.
Beautiful setting, wonderful hosts

there was nothing to dislike.
Absolutely brilliant Dusty thanks. Had a great stay really helpful and a great host , best place I've stayed to date.
Truly outstanding value for money Excellent facilities in my room Great breakfast Charming hosts
Very brief visit. 99/100
The tea/coffee making facilities were adequate. To be perfect, I'd have liked a mug rather than a small cup and a bucket of milk sachets. 7 sachets is more than most places give you but does two cups if you like a milky tea and I don't like to ask for more.
Comfortable and clean facilities in a quiet location. Warm and welcoming proprietors with nothing too much for them.
The facilities in the room, including shower ect.
Dusty and Roz, we're very welcoming. The were not intrusive and left you to your own devices. The breakfast was fantastic,one of the best I have had at any hotel ever.
The mirror in the bathroom was a little low on the wall, as I am over 6' foot tall that's not a big problem but could do with being a little higher.
This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in Europe. I like the lovely glass terrace room, and breakfast. I have a feeling like staying at home.
Warm welcome and excellent hospitality. Wonderful breakfast. Would most definitely return..
