We stayed here after booking sight unseen via Booking.com during the drive up from south Wales. I've never been to north Wales or Anglesey before and was knocked out by how pretty it was. The hotel was originally built for a visit by Princess Victoria, later Queen, so is suitably grand, and it looks out onto the lovely Menai Strait. Make a careful note of where your room is, as you can quite easily get as bit lost. It's also the only hotel/pub where you can sit directly on the front looking out over the water,
I have one gripe - we hoped to enjoy a relaxing drink in the lounge bar after a very long drive, but this wasn't to be. In the bar was a family with a roughly two year-old child who clearly ruled the roost and monopolised the whole area very noisily, to the detriment of the other guests. It was 9pm and most hotels and bars I've used have a no-child policy after 8pm. The little lad was clearly over-tired and needed to be taken home, but when I asked at reception, by this time well after 9pm, if they could have a word, I was told a blunt no. A no-child policy after 8pm in the adult drinking areas would make many people's stay a more enjoyable one.
