Extremely good stay, very good value for money. 20 minute drive to climb Snowdon which was ideal. Patrick very accommodating, didn't hear a peep from the other guests. Would definitely recommend to others and when we return next year would definitely stay here.

I booked a ground floor room at this hotel through laterooms.com which was probably my first mistake as i now believe that dwaling with the hotel directly if you have special requirements is probably the best policy. I did speak to the owner after i had already made the booking about access for my wife who suffers from very severe... More

Thanks for the review. It's important people understand this hotel is DDA exempt due to the slope of the driveway into the car park which is not suitable for wheelchairs or disabled persons. Again you are right to tell people check with the hotel first and I would stress if in doubt please telephone first. Unfortunately in your case had... More

We stayed here for one night following the end of our Three Peaks Challenge. I was slightly concerned when we pulled up as from the outside it looks a little dated. But we were pleasantly surprised! All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable and the breakfast was plentiful and yummy! If you... More

It was my niece's wedding reception in the town (Sat 14th June) and my wife and I had left making an overnight booking to the last minute. A Google 'B & B' search brought up a vacancy at Menai Bank Hotel. Our host 'Patrick' was great from booking through to leaving; he only had one double room left, no sea... More

Thank you for a great review. Tip: As you said it can pay off to ring up sometimes. Just because an on line system says there is no availability, it means just that only for the rooms that are available to book on line Remember not all rooms appear on all the online booking systems. . More

I arrived in Caernarfon at a busy time, without having made a booking. The tourist office told me that all their registered properties were full, but unusually for them, they marked the location of unregistered properties on a map, but thought they might all be full. As I worked my way from the centre to the outskirts, I saw lots... More

Five stars for being comfortable, clean, hospitable and convenient. Staying here is like visiting your long lost Welsh/Irish family. It is not a glitzy hotel but being a family run establishment provides warmth and atmosphere often missing in chain motels or hotels Our room overlooked the Menai Strait where you could watch the beautiful sunset from the large bedroom window,...

Myself and my friend recently returned from a one night visit to Caernarfon. My room was lovely and clean and the bed extremely comfortable. Extra pillows were in the room and to my joy they were filled with down. Perfect and so very comfy. The shower worked perfectly and bathroom compact but easy to move around in. My only minor... More

We arrived here after a long day of traveling and received a warm greeting upon our arrival. They provided a delicious home-baked meal for our group of 38 and allowed us to have access to their amazing coffee machine so that we could enjoy some after-dinner refreshment. They have a pool table and piano just off the kitchen, a full... More

They make you feel very welcome and have lots of facilities that other places don't - Bar, Pool table, TV Lounge. We stayed in room 9 which is at the top of the B&B and faces the main road.

It's rewarding for us to read such lovely reviews. A lot of effort goes into providing those facilities and service. It's great when they are appreciated in such a manner. Thank you so much and hope we will see you again. Room 9 incidentally though small is truly beautiful in a full moonlight through the skylight :-) More

Thank you for your review. I think this is the only room where the hair-dryer is on the opposite wall to the dressing table. We will have another look at it when the electrician is available or maybe we can move the dressing table? Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we will see you again. More
