One of the most comfortable B&Bs I've stayed in. I slept extremely well and was lovely and warm despite my visit being in January. I intend returning for a longer visit, next time with my husband. It was great to sit in the window, having my breakfast and watching many different birds. I was very impressed by the provision of a fridge and microwave, together with plates and cutlery. I am disabled and have dietary requirements. Nothing was too much trouble for my hosts. My luggage was carried in for me and my dietary needs met.
The path from the car parking area to the house was rather narrow and, walking with sticks as I do, I found it difficult, but not impossible, to negotiate.
The hosts, breakfast, peace.
Nothing to mention, really.
Quiet secluded location ideal for parking my Land Rover, these vehicles are number two in the world for theft. Breakfast on time first class
TV was a bit of rocket science to operate. Although proprietor most helpful
Really welcoming hosts, nice touches for our anniversary. Really helpful with places to eat/visit.
A very warm welcome by Dusty. Thank you very much. Great breakfast. Local produce. Quiet location.
We had a warm welcome, the rooms were explained to us - how to use the heater, the TV, door locks etc which was very helpful. The room was lovely, had a little conservatory off it which would be so nice in summer. Breakfast was very good. Our hosts looked at maps with us and helped us plan our next few days touring South Wales. The room was comfy and warm - temp was only 2 degrees outside!
That we only had one night here!
The owners were lovely and very helpful when asked about walks in the area. The room was very private and the conservatory attached was a nice touch, we could have sat for hours watching the birds on the feeders outside the room. breakfast was wonderful. We will definitely be returning. A perfect B & B.
Very friendly and helpful owners, lovely accommodation and breakfast.
Dusty and Ros are very friendly and helpful. They put themselves out for their guests. We have been there three times and hopefully will go again.
The road works at the turnoff from town were always on RED.
Excellent personal service, great breakfast. Quiet location. Very cosy and comfortable.
Chairs in conservatory a bit uncomfortable, but thats a minor observation. Nothing within walking distance, i.e. pubs, restaurants.
Beautiful, tranquil surroundings. Wonderful get away to switch off and forget the stresses and troubles of daily life. Highly recommended!
We liked everything , it was a perfect stay ,thumbs up!!!!
We enjoyed one night at the railway cottage but would have liked more. Dusty made our stay very enjoyable and it is a beautiful B&B. Great food and lovely room with conservatory.
Breakfast was fantastic. Lois is a great cook and they are both very knowledgeable hosts.
Mattress is past its prime and not very comfortable.
Everything. My friend and I stayed for just the one night but were made so welcome. Would definitely give Roz and Dusty 10 out of 10
Have stayed here many times. Touches like microwave and fridge, choice of teas, hot choc and coffee etc etc etc. Fresh eggs from the hens are great too. When I stay in this area I never look elsewhere....
I only needed to stay one night.
Welcoming hosts, lovely breakfast, picturesque surroundings, would stay again!
The extra touches like eggs from their chickens, proper coffee and even watching birds on the feeders when having my breckfast
Comfy Room, Good food, Charming owners.
No complaints from me.
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.
