This place oozes history, charm and character. I have stayed here a few times over the years and have always found this hotel to be consistently good. Rooms are traditional and comfortable. It's worth booking early for an en-suite. The food is simple yet exceptionally good. Expect a full welsh breakfast and home cooked dinners with supersize portions. The location... More

The warmest of Welsh welcomes. The hotel is the home of British mountaineering. So much history to ponder. It is truly an honour to reside there. 'All' the staff really do make you feel welcome. The owners Rupert & Nick are on hand all the time. Their manager who's name escapes me (sorry). Very good at reception/bar area. There are... More

What a fabulous experience eating excellent food, being made to feel so welcome, and some great beer and wine as well. All the staff were very kind and thoughtful, and the ambience and surrounds are indeed very special in this historic Inn. We will certainly return!

I booked this hotel for my husband's birthday as it is very close to the base of Snowdon and so excellent for walking and lovely views, and we could take our little dog Paddy with us. We had never been to the hotel before but I read about it in an old library book and thought I would give it... More

Excellent hotel in a wonderful location, where you can walk from the hotel up to the Snowdon peak. The rooms are confortable with a number of bathrooms to choose from. The breakfast and evening meal were also excellent with coffee set-out for you by an open fire, bliss.

Took my mum to Snowdonia National Park for a few days, the hotel is right in the middle of the park with great views all around, with only one or two other houses next door this hotel stands right in the heart of nature. Friendly staff and great company after dinner sitting round the log fire chatting to other guests... More

The hotel has a lot of character, the rooms are good, and the various choices of bath are interesting! Food was good, even though it's a limited menu it works well and the portions are generous, which is what you need after a days walking. it's also a really nice place for a drink in one of the bars afterwards....

We stopped here whilst on the Cambrian Way and it was good to get out of the wind and then rain. There is enough space to put coats, bags and boots whilst you sit down and have a meal and a few pints. Definitely a great place to get warmth and comfort.

First came over 50 years ago and our families endured many a cold new years eve party but it is much warmer now! It has not changed much over the years and has kept it's wonderful atmosphere and real sense of the mountains and outdoors. Great location for Snowdonia National Park and climbing,cycling and walking. It is pricey but no... More

We were intrigued by the history and location of this inn online. While it does have a fascinating background, it is also rather run down and awkward in person. That may all be part of the charm, but as casual hikers, it simply was too expensive for our needs. If you're climbing Snowdon, the location and artifacts may make it... More
