Well if I was to read all these reviews and take on board comments I would not have stayed let's hope most are open minded. Derek and his family are lovely and obviously work very hard. He is a very accommodating man who strives to do his best and make sure your stay is comfortable not sure if some of... More

I have never come across such a Rude manager in the hospitality business. I feel like I have to write a review on this one. I always try and be fair and there are a few positives but I will share my experience. I found this place on late rooms and rang up the hotel to enquiry if they took... More

I don’t often do reviews but I felt compelled to do one in this case. The first thing I would say about this place and the biggest let down is the owner Derek. He is very surly and matter of fact and does not come across well at all. I would go as far as to say he is rude.... More

Possibly the worst hotel experience ever, lacking in the most basic requirements, ie a working hot shower and flushing toilet we ended up showering at the the Coed Y a Brenin facilities, filthy dusty rooms, dirty and grubby communal areas, inappropriate owner / manager. Avoid at all costs! Expensive !! This should be an absolute hot spot for outdoors travellers... More

I complained to Trip advisor about this comment, firstly, why is there a comment posted some 1 year after the stay, secondly, we have no record of any one of this name or from the isle of man staying during June of last year and thirdly, we dont have a communal room. son this puts me in a bit of...

Oh dear! When will owners learn that you have to work to get people to come back. Visited this establishment on and off for the last 25 years. Assme it`s now in new hands. Over priced, basic food . £30 for burger and beef pie with 2 drinks. Had to request salt and vinegar! Food was ok, but lacked any... More

This is most unusual as my wife spent quite some time chatting with you. The prices are published and we only use the best Welsh Black cuts in the meals you had hence the price. With regards to the salt and vinegar my grand daughter forgot,(which upset her) Regarding the TV, I've no idea what happened there. Indecently we had... More

Visited this pub for a meal on Monday 8th February. Owner was very friendly and meals were OK but nothing spectacular We have had a lot better!

If I remember correctly, we were the only establishment open, that in its self was unusual. So, the prices are published and common to the area, you had a double measure of wine and a latte coffee followed by a 12oz welsh bacon gammon and a home-made lasagne made with the best Welsh Black meat, the chips weren't greasy as...

Derek the owner greeted us at the front and my first impressions of him were that he was polite and welcoming. He asked how many we were and why we had come down to wales. You’re standard, welcoming small talk. However, as conversation progressed, for some unknown reason he decided to tell us of another party that had stayed and... More

I refer you to the previous comments, as these people wer from the same party. I cannot understand why Trip advisor would allow two comments from the same party. If they had been worded differently icould accept it, but they cover the same things. I can never understand why people exaggerate negatively about items and rarely be positve. Ah well... More

I stayed here some years ago whilst on a MTB'ing weekend and as such stayed here again for one night recently. Derek the owners opening conversation was unprofessional and unnecessary to say the least. He said that he was ‘assuming’ correctly that we would be eating in the restaurant that evening! My reply to this was that we may be... More

Strange thing to say about me, I recognised them from previously and had (what I thought a friendly banter) However, As they were a reasonably large party, I wanted to know if they were dining in to reserve them a table, never mentioned other premises as I dont know their situation. How else can I describe where the bus stop... More
