The B&B was a perfect choice for valentines day and we would love to go back during the summer months. The location is great as it slightly set back from the main road so, even though Betws-y-Coed itself is extremely peaceful, you can enjoy the tranquillity even more by being just off the main road. It also has a great...

Our greeting by the owner was very friendly and welcoming. After quickly signing in we were shown to our room which turned out to be the original 'cell' and adjoining rooms from back in the day where prisoners were kept before standing trail - I guess the name of the B&B gives the original purpose of the building away! Either...

We stayed at the Courthouse at Christmas for 2 nights. The B&B is located in the centre of Betws-y-Coed, by the river, and close to shops and restaurants. Rooms were very clean and cosy with comfortable beds. The breakfast was served at 8-9, many alternatives were available. Especially the fresh fruit salad was perfect, as well as wide selection of...

The courthouse proved to be an ideal, centrally located bed and breakfast. The meet and greet and was friendly and the general layout of the accomodation was adequate. Breakfast service was very good and the food was tasty and plentiful. The only let down was the cold and dampness of the building. Rather than the heating being set on a...

We had a wonderful break in Snowdonia staying at The Courthouse in Betws y coed for 4 days in October. What a fabulous B&B! Situated in a lovely spot by the river yet only a couple of minutes’ walk to the village centre, this ex - Victorian police station is a real gem. We stayed in the “Lawyer’s room” with...

We stayed for two nights at the Courthouse and would definitely return. It is ideally located - away from the main road but close to the centre of the village.
