Like some previous reviewers, we stayed here on a two night break through Groupon. We paid £149 for two people (including the extra £5 per person, per night for breakfast) The deal also included dinner on the first night.
The "real" rate was supposedly £296 for two people, excluding breakfast and I have to say I would have been outraged if I'd paid this sort of money, for a small, no real frills motel and an uninspiring dinner, but the Groupon deal was a very fair price and we didn't feel we'd been robbed.
The main good thing to say about The Lodge is that it is extremely well positioned for exploring North Wales and we would certainly use it again - if another deal came up, that is.
It is also immaculately and spotlessly clean, with a cosy, welcoming bar/lounge area and attractive restaurant. Our room did remind me of the 'Crossroads Motel' somewhat, with the washbasin outside the bathroom and front door straight to the outside, but the large comfortable bed and sparkling clean fixtures and fittings made up for the lack of proper country hotel charm.
The included dinner on the first night was OK I guess - average, unimaginative, pub grub. My fish pie was plentiful, but bland and other choices I can remember were soup and melon to start and pie of the day and gammon as mains. The only vegetables on offer were peas and chips or new potatoes.
Breakfast, on the other hand was absolutely excellent.
The ordinariness of the meal and quietness of the hotel during the two nights we were there, resulting in the atmosphere of the bar and restaurant being extremely lacking, led to us not taking advantage of the Groupon offer the following night of a free bottle of wine with two courses. We ate at the Groes Inn, three miles up the road, towards Conwy, which was very jolly.
There is also a pub about five mins walk from The Lodge, in the other direction, serving bar meals at very reasonable prices.
Staff at the hotel are chatty and welcoming. Wouldn't like to get on the wrong side of the guy who appears to run the place though.........as the previous reviewer has already demonstrated!
We had three days, two nights of a lovely North Wales break. We saw lots of lovely places and it was nice to return to the quietness and good location of the Lodge in the evening. As I mentioned earlier, we'd certainly come again - but certainly not at that full rack rate.
