We stayed here one night before our ferry to Ireland. The owners are more than friendly and gave us very good advice on where to visit and eat. The breakfast was outstanding and the atmosphere in the breakfast room very relaxed. We had bikes on the roof of our car and the owner kept a watch on them through his... More

Yes the whole Car Park is covered by Night Vision HD Digital CCTV which is monitored. It gives everyone a feel of security and certainly acts as a deterrent. Hope you enjoyed your cycling trip to Ireland. Thank you for your favourable review. More

Stayed here for one night before a trip up Snowden. Really nice b&b, very friendly and helpful owners. Breakfast was spot on, one of the most extensive buffets we've ever seen as well as a great full Irish! Room was clean and well equipped. Nice little bar we had a drink at in the evening too. Only gripe was the... More

I spent 4 nights here last week and cannot fault the place, location, view or staff. The breakfast was beautiful, the location was great and the view outside the hotel really make it a fantastic place to stay if you are in the area. It has all the local amenities and a short walk into town. Top stars.

Our room was an attic room, so lots of stairs. It was however roomy for 3 adults and the beds very comfortable. It wasn't fancy, basic amenities, but the use of the kitchen downstairs enabled us to make our own breakfast before heading over to Caernarfon Castle and the walled town.

PIPCaernarfon, Owner at Menai Bank Hotel, responded to this review

Yes those stairs keep you fit! Sometimes I wish I had a lift,- but then again at my age I need to keep fit too! Yes when you are on a tight budget or diet the self service kitchen is great particularly as there is a Morrison's supermarket directly across the road. Thanks for mentioning it in your review.

Location is pretty good, 5-10 minutes to the center. Hotel has a small private parking lot and very good and speedy wifi, particularly at ground floor. Our room was big enough, clean and nicely kept.

Run by an Irish couple,it was a very welcome and warm place to stay. We had a big room and even bigger bed in it,we found it ideal for our purpose. I can recommend it and will certainly stay again. On arrival,book in and unload before taking the car round the rear to the car park. Breakfast was excellent.

PIPCaernarfon, Owner at Menai Bank Hotel, responded to this review

Good advice on your part. We like to encourage people to stop at the front door, unload their bags, check in and be shown where to park. If everyone parks in their allocated space there is usually no problem finding a place to park...all free of course :-) Thanks for your review. More

We like the fact that you summarise very well in your review that we were the best value for money in all your recent stays. We try to offer extra value in the extra comforts we provide as you describe. The views over the Menai Strait from the front rooms we agree are stunning. Thank you for your review. More

The Menai Bank hotel is just what's needed after a long drive to North Wales. We had a room looking over the Menai Straits which was very comfortable, clean, light and airy! What more could one ask for. The Breakfast? It was excellent! All in all a delightful place to stay, close to the Castle and Centre of Caernavon.
