Personally,and that what t.a. is about,I can not think of any good reason why I would want to return to this dark ,dirty and depressing place. The location is brilliant but nothing has been done to draw in customers!

O.K. The pros - Great location/views. Friendly staff. Very comfortable night's sleep. The cons - Dirty/dusty paintwork. Integral shower unit with bath taps but no wall attachment or shower curtain, so no shower. The place generally needs cleaning and the Tea Rooms name changing to Hikers' Cafe which is a much more accurate description. A great pity as this place... More

We had come up to Devil's Bridge to walk around the falls and were tempted on exiting the falls (a must see, by the way) by the sign which read Sunday Lunch £7.95. The tea rooms decor is tired, it is true, but something about it reminded me of my childhood rather than modern day squalor and for that it... More

A great place to visit and relax to have a quiet drink or eat in its great restaurant and have a good game of darts the old way. the landscape is amazing,if you like walking go down the devil bridge falls after lunch.

Lovely looking building with stunning views from the terrace area outside (although the terrace could do with sprucing up to make it more appealing) and even better views from the bedrooms upstairs. My room was a bit of a let-down, very basic and quite tired and I was dreading opening the en-suite bathroom door but "wow" - 5 star shower... More

Fantastic view from bedroom window somewhat made up for the tired Welsh hotel look (I always suffer with hotel bedding - I'm going to start packing my own blanket - indeed, I'll put it in my bag now while I thin about it) Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was great, beer was great. Not the cheapest hotel, but worth... More

I stayed here with a fairly large group of friends in July. The hotel is set in stunning scenery and the view from my bedroom - top floor at the front - was one of the best I have ever had. We meet as a group every year and our formal dinner on the Saturday night was also one of... More

Visited the hotel tea room as part of a day out on the steam railway. Externally the hotel and tea rooms looked good and had a definite alpine look and feel but went inside to find tables covered in plastic tablecloths, sofa with dirty cover, pool table that looked completely incongruous and yellow walls, that made the place look like...

Came as part of a group. Food was ready and waiting on the table as we arrived. Soup hot and nourishing, staff young and willing. Second visit and will gladly come again to this peaceful location. Ideal place to watch natural history (including Red Kites). They seem to welcome visitors from ramblers, to bikers to cyclists.

Myself and my boyfriend visited Devil's Bridge at the weekend. When we got there we had been travelling for quite some time so thought it best we have a cup of tea and a snack before we started looking around the area. The only place to visit was the tea rooms. It wasn't busy at all, we were the only... More
