Pretty room in a nice house with great breakfast and a fantastic owner
The room does not have all the facilities listed in the description; there is no bath tub and the balcony is shared, not private.
The wifi did not work most of the time and was very slow when it did.
Ana, the owner, is an extremely friendly, attentive, yet not at all intrusive host - she may very well be the best host we had in the past eight month of travelling. Not only did she provide us with a little map upon arrival and fantastic breakfast, but even offered to take us to Trelew by car, when we left, since she was going there anyway. Much nicer than I would expect in a hotel!
The guest house has been run by her family for several generations and she is very proud of the Welsh heritage she and the place have - and is a certified Welsh teacher.
The room and the breakfast room are decorated with great attention to detail and therefor very cosy - the colour of the tea pot cover matches the colours of the room (which is, by the way, also true in the excellent tea house around the corner, which Ana runs as well).
Breakfast was excellent and adapted to our somewhat specific dietary needs - there were not only scones and toast and welsh cakes, but also cornflakes and fresh fruits as well as real fruit juice and, of course, excellent tea. All of that was not only delicious, but also presented with great attention to detail, which was just something we looked forward to every morning.
The location of the guesthouse is good, it is in the central part of Gaiman, so you can walk everywhere.
A word of advice not directly about the hotel:
There is the tea house run by Ana around the corner, which is excellent, and another very good tea house down the street - avoid the Cardiff tea house on the other side of the river though, even though they have a cup that once was used by Princess Diana; it is a tourist trap, which is expensive, has tacky decorations and really not great food and tea. The tea houses in town are a lot better.
