We spent 4 nights in this lovely hotel. We had a view of the river which was just lovely. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful especially Michelle. We ate here each night, and the food was very good as was the breakfast. If we are in the area again we will... More

We stayed at the Craig-y-Dderwen hotel for three nights and had a absolutely fantastic time! The hotel was accommodating to dogs which meant we could take our Labrador along too, which was really important to us as we had booked the break as part of a planned walk up snowdon. The bedrooms were large and spacious and very clean. The... More

We enjoyed a wonderful 4 day stay at this resort. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. The room was spacious with a wonderful view of the river. This is a great central location to explore the area. This is a hiker's paradise with several options available ranging in levels of difficulty.

My husband myself and our springer spaniel have just spent three nights here in a balcony room. The room itself was huge which was perfect for us as we always take our dog bed with us and the bathroom was excellent with a very modern shower and bath. The only negative of the room was as there were double doors... More

The staff were superb on our recent stay (mid-july). Michelle in particular was brilliant, really intuitive to our needs (we had a toddler) and a credit to the hotel. The waiting staff for meal times were very attentive and polite. So thank you, it was very much appreciated. The real ale on tap was pretty good too (although expect hotel... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in July. We were given a warm welcome after a long drive and grotty weather. Check in was quick and easy. We booked a riverside room and all I can say is Wow! The view was exceptional and the location really gives the hotel the feel of that something special. It's... More

We have just returned from a week's stay at Craig-y-Dderwen, our second visit this year. The weather was beautiful and the hotel was excellent as usual. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable room, wonderful food and the service could not be faulted. My wife and I are both disabled and the staff were only too ready to help... More

The hotel is located about 150 yards off the main road, right next to the river. It is a beautiful location and yet the centre of Betws is only a ten minute easy walk away. We paid extra for a river view room, which was huge, with a balcony that overlooked the river. It is also great to have breakfast... More
