Spent 1 night on our trip through Wales.. Room was on smaller size showing its age however both bed and bath rooms were spotless. Our room was facing busy road but wasn't bothered by noise. Could walk to Castle and tourist stores but all uphill. Plenty of parking on site and WI-FI reception was adequate.. Young man who checked us... More

We had booked this hotel online and stayed 2 nights for our trip to North Wales. It is located on the lower road around Harlech and is directly below the castle. We enjoyed our stay, although the owners were OOT when we were there and so information was lacking. The young staff was quite helpful however. The room was basic... More

My daughters and I booked two twin rooms and both rooms were very clean with ensuite bathrooms. Lovely hospitality tray and even tissues! Would definitely stay here again.

This bed and breakfast is not 4 stars by any stretch of imagination. The room is old and dated and the carpet is dirty and stained. Soap was not replenish on second day. Shower or clean either. The breakfast is mediocre and this place is not worth the money paid.

We spent an unplanned night in Harlech due to car troubles and spent it here. The proprietress was remarkably accommodating, fun, and helpful. She directed us to attractions that were still open, helped store our luggage, and was a delight.

Clean pub restaurant and friendly welcome. Had a drink in the day and sat outside due to having our dog with us. Had a look at the menu and the choices sounded good so booked a table for the evening. The owner and her husband were very pleasant even though I interrupted them on their lunch break. Never made me... More

This is a clean, comfortable hotel well situated by the castle. What particularly impressed us was the service, we arrived late on Friday evening after the restaurant stopped serving and after we'd phoned ahead the chef agreed to hang on for us and cooked an excellent steak and chips. As well as this they were happy to serve breakfast half... More

Ate here last week - the menu sounded lovely with some really interesting dishes, unfortunately the food was a bit bland and just not as good as we had hoped for considering the high price (had a drink before dinner - one pint, one large wine and one bag of crisps was over £13...). It wasn't bad food, just a... More
