Just spent a lovely 4 days at the Fron Oleu bed and breakfast. Fantastic large room with breathtaking views. Included is a very hearty breakfast cooked by lovely Shelley including her fresh homemade bread every day. Criccieth is a short drive away with some good restaurants. Lovely beaches nearby. Will certainly visit again.

Management response:

Thank you for your review. Sorry for the late reply but as you knew we were away. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes, Shelley
