“Friendly hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We stayed here for two nights on a KGB deal. We had a great stay. The hotel was ideally located, about five minutes walk from Snowdon mountain railway and the steam train ride around the lake. Also the trip to Electric mountain which was also quite fascinating. The Hotel room was very comfortable, the staff very friendly, there was also a very friendly parrot in one of the lounges who enjoyed a chat. The food was very good and served with a smile, and they even served "real chips" which I found a treat. Would definately stay again when in the area.

We have just stayed at the Pardarn Lake Hotel on a two night KGB deal. The hotel is in need of an update with the decor, however for the price we paid £69 for two nights b&b full breakfast, you couldnt really complain. This also included a free bottle of wine if you ate in their restaurant and 10% off the food bill. However if I was to have paid the full price without a KGB deal of £150 for two nights b&b and no offer then I would honestly say the hotel was not to standard with that price tag. It is close to all ammenities, and within easy walking distance of Snowdon Mountain and the slate mines! We stayed in room 421 which was a family room, which was on the top floor, so not ideal for the faint hearted or after a few drinks climbing the stairs. There are no lifts in this hotel. One thing I will say is the food is absolutely lovely, takes a little time to come out in the evenings but everything is cooked fresh or you have the hot stone to cook it for yourself. The evening menu is of splendid choice and not to costly. During the day there is a snackbar menu and the sandwiches are to die for, and also the chicken and mayo hot baguettes! oh lordie these were yummy! You can dine in the dining room or the conservatory in the evening we preferred the dining room. The breakfast is exceptionally good, local produce, but could do with a little traditional Welsh black pudding and some mushrooms. Coffee is perculated, lovely and a fine choice of everything to eat in the morning from fresh fruit to grapefruit segments, cereals, yoghurt and honey and then of course the cooked breakfast. Staff are really lovely, I cant understand a few comments on here about staff being rude, I sometimes think people expect the world for next to nothing! if you want 5* treatment pay the price and stop being tuppenny snobs! Beds were comfy and the bedding spotless, pillows were fine and comfy and the towels were crisp white and changed daily. And last but not least George the parrot, he is so wonderful except a few of his chosen words! I will leave that to the imagination! So if you are looking for somewhere close to all the amenities, quality food, good hospitality then this via the KGB deal is a must.

A real cracker of a place, stayed for 2 nights on the 13 sept. The staff especially cerys (I hope that is how you spell it) were always on hand to help. It is central to everything and everywhere. Thank You to a lovely family for a lovely couple of days. P.S Food is excellent.

Stayed in the Padarn Lake Hotel as wanted to tick Snowdon climb off my bucket list. Arrived at the hotel on Tuesday to be greeted by the friendly and extremely helpful staff. We had upgraded to the four poster bed room that was spacious and spotlessly clean. Tea/coffee making facilities were also provided.

The hotel is an old traditional hotel but has been modernised in mayy parts however, retaining it's olde worldly charm.

The food in the restaurant was excellent quality and I can highly recommend the mixed grill served on the lava stones that you cook at the table! The quality of the meat was very good and must admit I have never had duck breast as part of amixed grill- it was exceptional.

All the staffare extremely attentive and couldn't do enough for us.

A fantastic hotel to expore North Wales with Portmeirion and Bedd Gellert, Portmeirion etc within a short drive away.

While at the hotel- say hello to George the parrot for us!

Finally, the climb to Snowdon- we left Llanberris on a beautiful late summer morning having had a hearty breakfast. Stopped for a cup of tea at the halfway house Cafe, and arrived at the summit at 12 noon to a very windy, misty cafe. A well deserved break before the trek back. Well worth the 5 hours of my life!

Room Tip: We upgraded for £15 per night to the fourposter bedroom that was largerthan the average room we have...

This was a quaint old fashioned hotel that was spotlessly clean with very friendly staff. The breakfast was very good as was the food in the bar and restaurant.The veggie options were a bit limited in the restaurant and don't expect a smart boutique hotel- this is a family run establishment where the service is more important than modern decor. We went on a KGB deal and this was excellent value for money.
