My brother and I stopped here for lunch on the way home from Criccieth. We had been there before last summer and had really enjoyed the Welsh Ale there. It was great to down a couple of pints of Evan Evans cwrw(beer) If you really enjoy FLAVOURSOME ale, I thoroughly recommend this one. We both opted for the smoked chicken... More

Stayed here whilst working at the nearby nuclear power station. I had intended to try a number of B&B's in the area and pick the best, but I don't need to try anywhere else. I will be staying here one night a week for around a year, and will enjoy every visit. The food and ale are really very good,... More

Warm welcome from Simon and all the staff. Stayed one night very comfy bed, large room and en-suite. Locals made us welcome in the bar where we enjoyed local Ales. We enjoyed the yummy breakfast in the dining room with views of the beautiful countryside. Also enjoyed chatting with other friendly travellers over dinner. Good menu choices and top class... More

So glad we were recommended to eat here - very friendly welcome from Simon and his team and delicious food. This is much more that pub food - excellent Linguini with Scallops and Prawns in a delicious pea, lemon and fennel sauce and an excellent traditional roast beef. The best pub food we have experienced in a long time and... More

We came last weekend for dinner having been recommended to eat here by the owners of the cottage we hired. This is a popular place and we could see why, the manager is a spin Doctor with the way he works seeing that every one is taken care of, our food was terrific for a pub/ hotel as we didn't... More

Spent the weekend at the grapes after it came highly recommended, its located in a quiet spot only ten minutes away from Porthmadog and the newly opened zip line in Llechwedd Slate Caverns. Plenty of on site parking, good size and clean rooms, brilliant service, food and beer. A great place to stop if your looking to explore snowdonia, the... More

I booked accommodation at the Grapes as part of a multiday walk on the Wales Coastal Path (an inland section). I arrived quite muddy and tired and was grateful to be quickly led to my room. It was enormous. So was the bathtub, and a hot bath was just the ticket after hours slogging through the forest on a rainy... More

Stayed at the Grapes for two nights over bank holiday weekend. We were very happy with all aspects of our stay, from the cleanliness of the rooms to the quality of the food (and cask ales). Simon and his staff were excellent.
