Me and my parents stayed at the Buckley arms this weekend and I couldn't of been more impressed. Upon arrival we were greeted and taken up to the rooms, I could not fault one problem with my room, it was large, exceptionally comfortable and very clean ! The staff were very friendly and would always take the effort to talk... More

Hello again, glad your journey home was a safe one. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I remember well how our unpredictable dog kept you amused in the bar. Sometimes she's a bit odd, but she's fine in the bar and Saturday she behaved very well. I'd be more than happy to welcome you and your parents back again... More

We overnighted at The Buckley Arms whilst we were exploring the area, the location was good and just what we expected. The hotel itself looks good from the outside having undergone a recent repaint. We received a reasonable welcome and the check in process was straightforward enough. We also had a good nights sleep - and the breakfast was very... More

Hello again. I’m so sorry you were disappointed with your stay. With regard to the charge for breakfast, depending on which site was used to book your room you might not have had the option for breakfast which was pointed out during your visit. We offer a ‘room only’ or ‘bed and breakfast’ choice and not all sites we advertise... More

Buckley Arms Hotel was built in 1874 as it says above the door. There are enough original features remaining to create interest but the view of the surrounding mountains is the real star. There was a warm welcome by the owner and the service from staff remained high during our one night stay. The rooms and ensuite bathrooms are large.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in May 2013, so I am a year late writing this review, but was prompted when I saw the review written by the person who stayed in September 2013 and gave a 3* rating. We arrived around 5.00pm after a strenuous walk over Cader Idris. It was quite cold and I... More

Hello there, I remember your stay very well. I also remember the fact that the heating (which also heats the hot water) did not restart that afternoon. I can only apologise again as I did at the time. Once I had been told the water was tepid I did investigate and correct the problem, and had I been aware earlier... More

I only spent one night in this hotel! Overall it was nice! We arrived late and the owners kept the kitchen open for us, which was very kind of them, since there is nothing around the hotel! The was a fireplace in the pub area, it was nice and cosy! The dinner was very nice, but a little pricy! I... More

After a day off roading on fantastic Welsh lanes, the Buckley Arms Hotel was just the thing. Lovely welcome, nice and warm with a great warming fire and the rugby on a giant screen- magic. Rooms were spacious and warm with lovely big bathrooms and nice hot showers. We had twin beds, really comfortable and a good nights sleep was... More

First the good points. We stayed in the Sir Edmund Buckley room. It was spacious, clean, warm, had a good view and was at the back of the hotel away from road noise. We had a well cooked meal at the Bistro but were disappointed that our first choice of fillet steak had run out by 7pm on a Friday... More

I'm so sorry you weren't happy with your stay and I can't fathom why there wasn't any hot water because I checked with all others guests and they didn't have a problem. I have had the bathroom checked and there didn't seem to be any problems. I'm puzzled because even during July and August when we were full we didn't... More

Dinas Mawddwy is unashamedly in the middle of nowhere. A fair drive from the sea still, and a bigger one back across the border, so it was a surprise to find two large hotels there, but it was perfect for us to get away for a night and near to the walk we had planned the next day. We arrived... More

The welcome was warm and friendly, the room lovely and interesting. The food was excellent with lovely views of the valley from the restaurant and the special in the bar was really good. I would definitely recommend this place.

I stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the "Buckley Arms" (they must have changed their name from Buckley Pines back to the original name). We received a warm welcome at the pub and were shown to our cozy and spacious room. The furniture is fully in touch with the architecture of the building, ie.a bit... More
