“I travel a lot for work and spend up to 90 days a year away from home. Nantgwynfaen has the most comfortable bed that I sleep in away from home; Ken and Amanda provide the best breakfasts anywhere. Therefore I can say that they run the best B&B any where in the land. It is the highlight of my annual travels. Thank you for another excellent stay. It’s as good as a retreat for recharging the spirit and soul.”…KC
