This review is about the restaurant only. We were looking for a seafood restaurant and were advised to try this one, a great mistake. We ordered a seafood meal, the starters were Mussels which were excellent, for the main we ordered a whole lobster each, when they came there was something odd about the meal but I couldn't put my...

We stayed at the Moelwyn Hotel the night before my daughters wedding at a nearby (and much more upmarket) venue. We’d booked here as we’d driven from the other side of the country and just wanted to relax before the big event, but for once I hadn’t researched in detail as it was only for the one night.

Lost count of how many times we've stayed here but we always enjoy a welcoming return. The whole place is comfortable and clean and all rooms offer a wonderful vista across the bay to Harlech and the hills behind. The restaurant faces the sea also and with an outside seating/dining area the views are gorgeous. Food is delicious with a... More

A top place to stay if you are travelling to Criccieth and the local areas such as Pwllheli. Extremely accommodating staff in the hotel and restaurant and nothing is to much trouble. There is plenty of parking in a dedicated area outside the hotel or there is always a spot along the waterfront. The view from the hotel and the... More

Stayed here with a friend for three nights at the end of July as had come to Criccieth to see my parents and brother's family who had rented a nearby house for a week. First impressions were poor with the ripped canopy at the entrance to the hotel, and this continued once we had checked in. The toilet in the... More

Stayed on a Friday night in July. Had not booked in advance and arrived around 5.30pm. Given the choice of 2 rooms that were available. Picked room 3. Lovely sea view, tea and coffee in the room, plus lovely homemade biscuits. Bed very comfortable, bathroom adequate. Ate at dinner there, but was rather annoyed that the white wine we ordered...
