I stayed here with a friend in Sept 2014, we went to climb Snowdon on a busy weekend & quite frankly we couldn't have chosen anywhere more perfect. Yes, it was a short (very scenic) drive from Snowdonia however the hospitality, cleanliness and Patrick made up for that. We were driving down from Leeds after work so unfortunately we couldn't...

Thank directly s for your great review. The sea-view is actually the Menai Strait directly in front of the hotel and to the left visible from the first floor is the entrance to the strait from the Irish Sea. The Menai Strait divides the mainland from the island of Anglesey which is the land you see on the opposite side.(Access... More

Booked this hotel because location was handy to Caernarvon and also had own parking. Great comfortable bedroom with all the trimmings. Nice to have access to fridge to keep own milk fresh rather than rely on tasteless long life portions. Very flexible breakfast options. Hotel small but well kept. Definitely would recommend to couples and business users. Left car-parked up... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a king size room with an en suite and comfortable queen size bed. Staff very helpful and friendly, nothing too much trouble. It has a very good breakfast with all tastes catered for. A good location not far from the town centre, all very clean and at a very good price.

We stayed for two nights and had an enjoyable stay. It is easy to find and is on the Main Street opposite Morrisons supermarket with parking at the rear for approximately 6 cars. We were warmly welcomed and shown to outer room, which was very large. The hotel is split on many levels and has free wifi and is only... More

Did not feel welcome from the start. We arrived in the rain and after being trapped in a traffic jam. (Long weekend in Wales. )Told immediately our room was not ready, by at least two different people. We only arrived 1 1/2 hours early. We left in the rain to check out the town.

Thank you for your comments. I understand you made your booking by telephone and requested a standard double (which is one 4’ 6” bed). So not sure what you mean by only a Double? Maybe it was a Twin (2 Single beds) you required? The Double allocated is fitted with a memory foam mattress with a sprung base. We get... More

This is not a purpose built hotel but a conversion of 3 Victorian villa style houses which means that there were some imperfections. These minor imperfections were well outweighed by the warm welcome and continued attention from Rebecca, the comfortable beds, the clean spacious room and the wonderful breakfast that we'd opted to take. In addition, there was free car... More

Room was dirty, bath plug didn't fit, television turned on with light switch, the window broken and the room noisy. However, the initial greeting was pleasant although I can see why the place is up for sale.

You have not mentioned which room you were in so we have double checked all the rooms with bath and could not find any problem with any bath stopper. We have also checked all those bedroom windows and could not find any broken! Regarding your comment about the light switch for the TV we can only assume you mean the... More

Yes, Patrick is very helpful, but we found the room to be very basic. The building is old and it shows. The location is convenient, as it is within walking distance from the town center. A supermarket and small shopping arcade are even closer. Free parking is a definite plus. However, the room rate, which does not include breakfast, is... More

Thank you for your review. We realise the hotel is old (c.1860). If we upgraded further all the rooms it would take us into another price level. We think we fit well into the convenient basic accommodation bracket you describe. Your comments are noted. Thank you again. More
