... into a dissertation paper but my first supervisor wasn’t keen about me
writing about film since it wasn’t “literature.” I probably should have fought
harder for it but oh well, I also did want to write about what my dissertation
is on anyway. Can always try to
work on it at Purdue.
Speaking of Purdue, gotten like a million emails from them
this week. Trying to register for classes, my supervisor is really ...
... Our profits were relatively successful, but it is actually acceptable to have bake sales here so I think that hurt our profits a bit, or maybe in the UK people don’t want to donate a lot, who knows. But we made enough to pay for the train ticket for our guest speaker.
Let me think of what else has been happening in life. In Manuscripts class we have been discussing medieval music and looking at the Bangor pontifical again. If anyone ...
... a study party with Jacob the other day so we would stop
procrastinating and actually do some work, it worked rather well. But we also
made nachos and just derped around a lot too.
Here is the only picture of the week, a nice Bangor sunset
at the pier from a Friday walk. Lets hope I am alive and at full health this
week. I know back at NAU spring break is coming up! Have fun AHS in Las Vegas!
Miss you guys.
... when I took it to the garage to get the lights looked at and tyres pumped up that he needed new wheels. But it is only when I drive it that Billy (the van) plays up. When it's owner drives it, he behaves perfectly. But as his owner is currently serving out in Afghanistan and I've been given the 'privilege' of looking after Billy (my mans pride and joy) until he gets back, I have to be the one to take him to the garage and nurse him. Despite all of the initial drama, it was ...

This weekend I intended to work on my dissertation, I got about a 1,000 words done so a start at least. Walked up to Roman Camp with Jacob on Friday, a nice scenic point in Bangor that I live really close to. Then I went out with Emily and Craig for his ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ty Gwyn Hotel Betws-y-Coed
I can recommend the Ty Gywn. Although the shower in our room didn't really work they moved us to a different rm the next day and were very friendly and helpful. They are in the process of updating all their bathrooms and replacing carpets so maybe we just caught them at the wrong time. The food in the restaurant is excellant and busy every night. The area is really beautiful, and although the Hotel and the staff were great, and went out of their way to be helpful, next time i think we'll go to one of the cheaper B&B's in town and just eat at the Ty Gywn, as rates are quite expensive for what you get compared to other accom in the area. Great place though.
Chose the Ty Gwyn hotel after looking on this web site and yet again Trip Advisor has come up trumps.
The room was very clean and tidy and the bed was comfy.
The only possible negative I could find was a little bit of a traffic noise but it's hardly like you're staying on the M25 !!
The food was excellent - I can recommend the duck.
Very reasonably priced - would definitely stay again.
Great room, So-so Service
I loved my room at the Ty Gwyn coaching lodge. It had stone walls, was nicely decorated and had lots of charm. But I probably wouldn't choose to stay there again as a single traveler because no one chatted with me like I normally expect from a good guest house. Service at breakfast was mediocre and not too friendly. Checking out was a bit of chaos, with the restaurant staff trying to check me out vs. an experienced person. Also, they had drinks on my check-out tab that weren't mine. It I had a car to check out more of N. Wales and a partner to travel with, the experience would have been much nicer as the rooms are wonderful.
A traditional inn par excellence
If you like traditional coaching inns then this is one to try. Don't go there if you are one for the antiseptic modern hotel. This place has stacks of character, good food and a gentle ambiance. A proliferation of ornaments around the hotel, but particularly in the bar, lends to the homely atmosphere and provides something to look at and discuss as you imbibe the fine ale available.
Situated just on the edge of Betws it is less than a gentle two hour drive from Liverpool airport. It is ideally located to allow spectacular drives to the areas attractions i.e Ffestiniog, Portmieirion, Capel Curig, Snowdon and Caernarfon to name but a few.
I will certainly visit again if I get the chance.
My wife and I recently stayed at Ty Gwyn in Betws-y-coed and were very impressed by the place. It's bursting with character and in a great location. Our room was delightful. The bar (which is open all day for residents) and restaurant are fascinating with antiques everywhere. The food is just magnificent. We only had 3 nights, and wished we'd booked for a longer stay to fully explore all that this beautiful part of North Wales has to offer - will no doubt return in the future, provided we can get in at Ty Gwyn!
My husband and I chose this charming hotel based on a recommendation from the travel guide Fodors Forum. We could not have been happier with the recommendation.
I was looking to take a break somewhere in Wales and chanced upon the website of Ty Gwyn in Betws-y-coed. Having visited the area many years ago, I knew the setting would be ideal - and their website seemed to suggest it was the sort of place I like. I phoned and made a reservation, for 3 nights. Afterwards, I thought I'd have a look on Trip Advisor to see if there were any reviews and was quite concerned to read the "Not as good as I expected" review. I made the decision to go ahead with my booking anyway - and I am SO glad I did - the place was quite wonderful.
I had seen rave reviews of this hotel on another website, so was expecting a highlight of our trip. My expectations were too high. It was OK.
Good - with just a few failings
We stayed here for a weekend in March. Overall the experience was good with excellent food and an exquisite de-luxe room. There were just two drawbacks. Firstly, the restaurant seemed to be lacking staff on the Saturday night. Consequently, it took us absolutely ages to order and get served (we had to prompt the waitress several times). Secondly, the bathroom decor could have done with a spruce up, as it was looking quite tired. That said, we would wholeheartedly recommend the Ty Gwyn to anyone visiting Betws.
I booked this hotel and when i pulled up outside thought it looked a dump - how wrong can you be - rooms small but excellent. Evening meal was fantastic, the bars only open to residents or anyone booking a meal which makes the place even more quaint and cosy. All in all a brill find for the money
