Betws-y-Coed is a fabulous place and we found our stay in one of the Hotels outside rooms most suitable, clean and tidy. Our hats go off to the cleaning/housekeeping staff who we found so very helpful and obliging. Our room had a problem in that the bathroom fan would not switch off automatically. This is but one of those minor... More

We have used the Waterloo Hotel in BewsyCoed for our clmbing club annual dinner for 38 years. The service as usual was fantastic, the welcome warm, food great and recent renovations make the hotel even more attractive. Well placed for walking , shopping and exploring Snowdonia and the Welsh coastline.

We had meals in the bar and in the restaurant. We were welcomed with a smile. The service in both was friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was very good - excellent mussels, pork fillet and gammon. An excellent experience.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel during the October half term break (2 adults and 2 children) and found this to be a lovely hotel in all respects. We were actually accommodated in one of the lodges in the grounds of the hotel in a family room, the kids slept on a sofa bed in the reasonably large room.... More

After a long drive from Lincolnshire it was nice to be greeted with smile from the helpful lady on reception. I had been given a free upgrade, so that was a bonus. Most of the rooms are accessed from outside, so you can park your vehicle outside your door. All the hills around are stunning and there are lots of... More

Much extended and re-furbished since our last visit. New bar and dining area are most agreeable. The food in the restaurant is very much above average: all cooked freshly to order; food locally sourced from Llanwrst and the area. Most excellent fresh trout. boned and cooked to perfection. Our extended family all relished the meal. Quick and courteous service. Last... More

We stayed here in October for a short break, hoping for some good weather so we could reach some of the peaks. The hotel was perfect for us. We had a good deal which included breakfast so we were able to fill up before we went walking. (Really enjoyed the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs). The hotel must have undergone... More

We stayed here during our first stay in Wales. I have to say we were a bit dubious before we arrived but friendly staff, clean rooms and a fantastic breakfast completely put any concerns to bed!

I stayed here on a two night break with my husband booked through a discount site. From the moment we arrived to when we left we had no complaints about anything. The hotel staff are all very friendly and the recently refurbished dining room is a pleasure to eat in. We stayed in a motel type room at the rear... More
