Dear Alastair, Both john and I were thrilled with your wonderful review of our guest house.

We really enjoyed our stay at ty helyg. The owners were lovely and helpful, the room was clean and comfortable and the food was perfect. We would definitely stay there again if in the area. We had the 4 poster bed room which was amazing, with a dressing room and hallway to bathroom, worth the extra money.
