    This was well located, with lots of places to see/walk to/explore close by. It was tired, but the views made up for it. Would recommend for a budget break. Everywhere was clean including bedding. Plenty of hot water for shower etc.

    The restaurant in the hotel seemed well attended by locals and regulars. The sandwiches, drinks and decor were all decent, nothing really exceptional except the people who were very nice. The bathrooms were nice and clean.

    Climb Snowdon. So easy from here. Great staff. Relaxed and friendly. Clean bed linen. Clean facilities. Lots of advice and tips from staff and leaflets. Food was ok but ran out of quite a few things as we ate late.
