After a long drive from the midlands we needed refreshment and ventured in to the tea rooms of the Hafod Arms Hotel. The place was shabby and the bar next door no better, I suppose "in need of refurbishment" is the polite way to put it. Whilst my wife ordered from the very inexperienced counter staff I went to the... More

We were staying close by and were recommended to go here for an evening meal. I had the home made lasagne that was absolutely disgusting, my husband had the steak. The steak was large and tasty but unfortunately it was asked for medium to well done and arrived rare to medium. The staff were friendly but we feel that the... More

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...
