This was our second visit, the hot tub room that we booked the last time wasn't available, we stayed in the room above (wouldn't recommend unless you want a late night). The room had all that we needed a lovely small balcony overlooking the river but it was 'tired' looking to say the least, the furniture dated and although we... More

Just got back from this gorgeous hotel after a superb weekend away. We had the lovely room with balcony hot tub and four poster bed. It was stunning. The staff at this hotel are friendly and attentive, the food was the best we have had. Beautiful setting - very romantic. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel. We would highly... More

We came up to Snowdon to hike but it poured with rain so we got stuck in our hotel. The hotel is super clean and comfortable and the room is big. The bed and pillows are pretty old so not that comfy, but all in all it is a nice place to stay. The food is amazing. We dined in... More

We stayed for 3 days in room 2 which is the room with the hot tub, what a good choice! Such a beautiful view from the hot tub and also from our lovely four-poster bed, the room was clean and had everything we needed. There was a good choice of breakfast and was always cooked to perfection and lovely and... More

Location: great, just great. Perfect views of the river and the mountains from the deck and the hotel. Great starting point for trips into Snowdonia. Betws-y-Coed is a nice little town, although a bit overcrowded by tourists at certain times. Service: good. Wifi connection is OK, but having to log in very frequently (as in about everytime you want to... More

Excellent hotel which exceeded our expectations. Room 10 had a great river view and was exceptionally clean. All staff were extremely friendly. Dinner and breakfast first class. Will definitely stay here again.

My partner surprised me with a short break in Snowdonia for my recent Birthday. I must say staying here really made the trip! Fab hotel, clean, well-furnished rooms and great food. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious - cooked to order from a delightful menu. All of the staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you, particularly the lovely... More

Superb riverside hotel with verandas over the river. The breakfast room is mostly glass giving wonderful views of the fast flowing river and surrounding mountains. Breakfast is cooked in an open kitchen area where everything is piping hot and freshly made for you. Service is excellent and friendly.

The situation of this hotel is superb, however it is getting ready for a refurb. We stayed in room 4 with our 2 dogs and the grounds were great for them. The walls were marked and the carpet stained. The stairs leading to the room were very steep. Dinner on both evenings was average with bones in the pre starter... More
