Annual reunion at this fabulous hotel which is run by Julie and her friendly staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable,superb breakfast(good variety). Well situated for a visit into Criccieth itself and for a walk down to the beach.

My friend and I were hoping to find somewhere comfortable to rest our aching legs after a long day running along the fabulous Welsh coast-line. We were delighted with this hotel, which could not have been more comfortable. Julie and Dafydd were extraordinarily kind hosts and the hotel is extremely convenient for sight-seeing. We would not hesitate to recommend this... More

We stayed over a weekend, from Friday night to Sunday Morning. Although the hotel was busy the staff still made time for us. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was great with plenty of choice and food on offer. I wish there were little menus though, because I felt a bit awkward asking for what they had.... More

I chose this place for me and my 15yo son because I couldn't find anything in Porthmadog but it turned out that Criccieth is an even nicer place to stay IMO. This little hotel is a gem and all of the rooms except one have been recently renovated and decorated to a very high standard of interior design, courtesy of... More

This is a lovely place to stay - and as others have reported, Julie is the best of landladies. Highly recommended for location, accommodation, and breakfast. Everyone staying appeared very satisfied, and there was a most pleasant atmosphere.

We spent three nights here, and really enjoyed the experience. Nice touches, such as two chairs in our room facing the lovely view, with wine glasses ready on the coffee table between them! Pretty front garden is furnished with plenty of tables and chairs. Good quality bed linen and towels. Owner and staff efficient and welcoming. We will return.

We were a party of six staying for three nights as part of a Golf Break. The establishment is very high quality with the rooms being spotless and nice personal touches throughout the décor and furnishings. Breakfast served each day,was delicious with plenty of choices to suit all tastes.

This is what hospitality is all about - while we staying in her immaculate home, personable host Julie continued to sort out a Spanish guy who had been marooned in Criccieth after his car had been involved in a smash, gave advice where to go to some other foreign visitors, answer the ever ringing telephone, supervise breakfast and still had...
