Just returned from a 2 night stay at the Waterloo. All the staff were friendly and helpful, the buffet breakfast was absolutely delicious, loads of choices. We also ate in the restaurant one night, exceptional quality, not cheap but not overly expensive either and definitely worth it. The pool is a great bonus. Our room was in the main hotel... More

We had a lovely room with our own patio, parking space, living room area and large, comfy bed. Impressed the cleaning is done with eco-friendly stuff. I wouldn't go so far as to say luxury, but very comfy. By far the best perks are the spa/pool (though it would be nice if it was open later into the evening) which... More

The Waterloo Hotel was pretty easy to find as you enter Betws-y-Coed. We had booked two twin rooms via booking.com and were placed in the chalets to the rear of the hotel, which was handy as you could park the car straight outside your door. The rooms were clean and came with free wifi, ironing board, TV and a view... More

We spent four days during the Easter holidays and thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. It was run very well with fabulous service from the young staff and we, unusually for us, ate in for all four nights. The food was maybe slightly ambitiously fine dining but done very well and we enjoyed it. The only negatives were that the second real... More

We stayed at this hotel on a 3-night cheap deal from Groupon. The room was in a chalet block a little way from the hotel reception and had a car-parking space in front of the room. The room was very clean and comfortable with tea, coffee and biscuits topped up each day. There is a railway line behind the room... More

Stayed here for a three night break on a Groupon Voucher and really enjoyed ourselves. We were a family of four (with a couple of other families in tow as well) and stayed in the lodges at the rear of the courtyard. They weren't massive, but clean and functional. Perfectly OK for a base for a weekend. Main hotel building... More

We haven't stayed at the hotel just had a meal at the restaurant. It was superb! Platter to share for starters which we asked to be made half vegetarian and half meet. Stake pizza and a burger. Everything was freshly prepared with the best ingredients and tasted fantastic. Would most definitely recommend to try.
