We spent a long weekend at the hotel. Had a fantastic time. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. We had one of the rooms with a deck area overlooking the grounds, stunning. The hotel has 18 acres of land alongside the river Conwy. Room to walk your dogs and a garden set aside for non dog lovers. Perfect. We... More

Second visit to this stunning hotel and was not disappointed! Fantastic location, beautiful surroundings. Our room was immaculate and more than big enough. The staff were warm and friendly, nothing was too much trouble especially the chef who happily worked around my dairy allergy without a problem! All in all was a perfect trip and we definitely have plans to... More

The hotel is situated alongside the river Conwy among wonderful scenery. It is ideally located for exploring Snowdonia. Our room was comfortable and clean, with splendid views from the balcony. The staff were friendly and polite, and unfailingly helpful. And the food in the restaurant was first class.

I have visited this property several times over many years, and have seen how the present owners have extended and renovated the property. It is set in a stunning location right by the River Derwent. Very dog-friendly and plenty of good walks right on the doorstep. My room on my latest visit was both spacious, comfortable and very clean as... More

Very comfortable room, good food and attentive staff....Large breakfast! ~No Lift, so ask for a ground floor room if you don't like staggering upstairs after the enormous breakfast! Private Car park and lovely walks by the river just at the end of the garden....Who could ask for more!

I stayed here recently as tour manager with a group of American garden lovers, and on the first night one of the ladies in the party surprised me with a hug, saying 'Thank you so much for bringing us here'! The beautiful setting, comfortable rooms, good food and friendly staff all combined to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. Although... More

My tour group stayed at this in for three nights. The hotel lacks a lift--but that is the only thing it lacks! The first thing to recommend it is its quiet setting on the banks of the river, at the end of a long narrow lane. The Tudor style of decoration (not real Tudor, alas) is also appealing. Inside the...

Hotel is set in beautiful surroundings, with lovely picturesque views of the countryside. The room we had was excellent with a balcony overlooking the river. The bed was huge and very comfortable and there was plenty of storage space in the room. Only downside was the bath which was quite narrow but as we only needed the shower this didn't... More

The most wonderful view from the large balcony of the main bedroom in our family suite. Big main bedroom which was tastefully fitted with a good second bedroom for the children. Rooms were spotless. Very quiet and peaceful. Comfortable bed. Very helpful staff, book in was very easy. Just one bathroom/toilet which lacked a decent shower. The restaurant is charming... More
