“Basic, but clean cheapest in area by a long way, Any port in a storm”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2010

We were meant to be camping in Wales, however under torrential rain we gave up. We wanted somewhere basic and cheap to stay. This place fit the bill pretty well. There were no mod cons, however the room was clean and we were so glad to be out of the rain. the place was very quiet and we were pretty much allowed to choose our room. It's a rabbit warren of corridors, with rooms everywhere. Our room was very dated, and was straight out of the 1970s. It is a long time since i have seen carpeted walls and a turquoise bathroom suite this took me back to my childhood. We were the only people in the pub and the land lord kept serving us till quite late on. This place needs a refurb both pub and room wise, but as mentioned was cheap and cheerful, and when there's so much to do in the area you don't want to spend it in the room anyhow.

Cheap place to stay but it was very basic (more like a Youth Hostel), other than towels, the room had no extras (no toiletries, hair drier, tv etc, which we all take for granted these days) It didn't even have knobs on the wardrobes. We did not eat there as the place looked dirty and smelt strongly of smoke, we ate at the Royal Goat, which had lovely food. There was a curfew of 11pm and our bed was the noisiest most uncomfortable bed, we have ever slept in (fortunately there were no other guests underneath us to be disturbed). Location is outstanding, but would not return to this hotel unless a complete revamp has happened. This is in stark contrast to all the other pubs,hotels and B&B's in the village who are fully booked and full with diners in the evenings, in fact that says it all.

Booked the Prince Llewelyn as it allowed dogs, overall the hotel is very very dated but clean and for £27 a night for B & B you are getting a pretty good deal. There is limited choice of drinks at reasonable prices, however the pub opposite (Taronnen ?) is much nicer in terms of atmosphere and drinks choice and the food also is of a good quality (maybe not so for dessert).
The Prince Llewelyn would benefit from some updating and a bit of atmosphere in the bar - otherwise a great place for an overnight dog friendly stop.

The Prince llewelyn Hotel sounds quite grand but in reality it is a pub that has accomodation and the price reflected this as it was not expensive. We booked and stayed for one night.

The rooms are quirky and a bit of a mish mash but they are clean and the staff friendly.

I would probably try another hotel if i went back to Beddgelert but that is because some of the other hotels looked lovely and not because this one was bad, it wasn't.

The village itself is beautiful. Whilst there you must visit 2 places, Gelerts grave and the ice cream palour(!)

We were surprised to find (on arrival) that there is an 11pm curfew for guests (changed to 11:30 after request, but not able to be extended further). The bedding was clean & the room huge, but there was an ashtray in the non-smoking room and the room started to smell smokey as the stay progressed. The ensuite room had a bath but it was dissappointing to find that the bath was not cleaned during our stay (it had quite a tide mark by the end). We didn't eat in, so can't comment on the food. The room had a TV, but it was a £5 deposit to get a remote, so whilst the channel could be changed, the volume couldn't be.

  • Liked — the sliding door to the room!
  • Disliked — the smell of smoke

Being a new user of the internet we came across your web site and noticed that you had not rated the Prince Llywelyn so hear is a review from us.
In may 2004 we stayed there for two nights at £25 per night per person including breakfast. The people who own the establishment were very friendly and gave us a very warm welcome. The rooms were clean and tidy with nice linen and towels. We were only staying one night originally as we was on a moving around holiday but we were that taken with the hospitality that we stayed on. We also tried the evening meals there and these were very nice all in all we were very pleased with our stay there and the owners also told us of the local history of the village i.e. gellert's grave and the copper mine and the fact that the inn of the sixth happiness was also filmed in the village and around it as well. I do have to say that i can't wait to go back again and we shall most certainly be staying in the Prince Llywelyn again.
