Stayed at the Lion hotel for 2 nights to attend a friends wedding. 1st impressions of the hotel was that it could do with a little tlc. Our room was spacious enough and we had lovely views from our 2 windows but unfortunately the decor needed modernising. The bathroom was lovely and modern so I think work is in progress.... More

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel in the centre of town. Our room was outside the main hotel adjacent to the car park. The room was small and as others have said in need of some TLC. The main income for the hotel seems to be coach parties containing senior citizens which really sets the scene. On one night there... More

An old picturesque coaching inn built in the first half of the eighteenth century, which clearly enjoyed a certain good reputation in the good old days and capitalized on it, but would not be able compete with more modern hotels and B&B in a place other than Criccieth, which is a tourist centre predominantly for pensioners. Our room was clean... More

I stayed for three nights with seventeen fellow golfers as a base camp for rounds of golf in the area. The hotel is fairly average and a little tatty in places but it was clean and comfortable and the staff were all helpful and friendly (with one exception when we tried to reserve an area of the bar to eat)....

We stayed at the Lion Hotel for 3 nights with 2 other couples. As we have a dachshund dog, we were put into their Annexe. Great view of Cricceith castle from the room, the only downside was we had no hot showers for 2 days. When we phoned the reception at 7.10am on the Sunday morning after finding out we... More

I stayed for three nights with my husband and two other couples. Our room was at the front on the second floor and was very nice. It was comfortable, clean and had a really great sea view. Each day the bins were emptied and the tea/milk was replenished, but on the second evening when we returned from our touring, we... More

We stayed here over the bank holiday weekend for one night. We stayed in the annex as we had two dogs with us. I think it's fantastic that it has the annex which is dog friendly, as most places aren't nowadays. The only trouble was that we were on the ground floor and the people above us were quite noisy...

We stayed as a party of eight golfers on a package. The hotel itself is in the heart of Criccieth and convenient for the courses we played. At £40 - £45 a night B&B it's fair value but the rooms were small (we were in the annexe) and the whole place is a bit tired. For the three nights we... More

The Lion Hotel is a fantastic place to stay, providing excellent accommodation, Food and Service throughout our three day Golf break for 21 golfers. The level of service received is of 5 star quality, but at a very reasonable price. The late arrival and check in of guests was dealt with professionally and staff even ensured that a late bar...
