Booked through booking.com and requested a lower floor bedroom as I'm registered disabled. As previously noticed hotels do not always receive special requests, I emailed the hotel direct. The email received was quite abrupt and if not such late notice we would have cancelled and looked elsewhere. The manager said his website and booking.com noted that the hotel was DDA... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mum when visiting the area for a friend's wedding. We stayed in the sea view twin room which had 1 double and 1 single bed. The beds were comfy and the view was great, despite the not so wonderful weather. The room was nice and big with plenty of storage and good... More

I usually stay at the Celtic Royal but was full so booked this hotel for 2 nights on Tripadvisor reviews. Arriving around 7pm on a storm battered night I was shown a side room with no view, not the room with a sea view that I had booked, with the explanation that I could "choose between a bath or a...

About the Choice of Room offered:….. Because of the exceptional bad weather and the driving rain and bitterly cold wind onto the sea-view room windows from the front of the house I thought I was being helpful by offering you a choice of other available rooms away from the storm noise. You accepted this and I thought you were happy... More

I picked the hotel because in previous reviews it said it had good views, off road parking, and excellent breakfast. However make sure you have a front room because mine was on the side and looked out onto a plain rendered wall! No room for my car in the car park and had to park on a side street, and... More

The side view rooms are smaller than the large sea-view rooms on the front,- hence the lower room rates for those rooms. If you are booking again please go direct to www.menaibankhotel.co.uk where you can actually select your room number with a view. You cannot do this with some OTA's (On line Travel agents). If you can't find one..just email... More

This hotel is easy to locate on the outskirts of Caenarfon, just a 10 minute walk from the centre. The hotel is dated, however was clean and comfortable for our short stay. The service was friendly and informative, and for the price I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The hotel offers good views from the front rooms, but is tired inside and in need of redecoration. The hotel and rooms are clean, but the bed was not very comfortable and the noisy water pipes and creaking floorboards make a good night's sleep hard to achieve. For the money they charge I would not call it good value. One... More

Every Winter and Spring we refresh and paint various rooms and areas of the hotel. At this time of year we agree some areas can look "tired". As carpets are replaced creaking floorboards can be dealt with until the next change! We're wondering which bed needs to be looked at (replacement beds for some rooms are currently on order). You...

Stayed here for one night while visiting the castle. It's a very short stroll from the centre of town. Our room was clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water! There are many lovely items on display, a well stocked bar and pleasant lounge area. Breakfast was in the front room with a lovely view over the Menai. The hosts are... More

We found this a delightful place to stay for our three nights in Caernarfon. Room 2 has a lovely view of the Menai Strait and Anglesey. We were impressed with the cleanliness, the spaciousness of our room and the friendly owners. Cannot comment on breakfast as we ate elsewhere.
