Hiya like going back 50 years in features but a great warm welcome. No radio or tv's, wifi in the back room, poor phone reception all the features I like on a leisure trip. The 5 course meal is big. Location - can walk straight out to the mountains. Bar service great.

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to a venue I wanted to climb at. I knew nothing of its history just saw a decent price and booked. It exceeded my expectations and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Room was a twin ensuite which was comfortable clean and in range of the

I found this hotel by accident in an internet search and I am so glad I did. It is a time capsule of a place. Steeped in mountaineering history (the successful 1953 Everest expedition stayed here when training in Snowdonia), there is an almost shrine-like appearance to some of

Oh Yes. Nice enough people but no business sense. Turning away business and running it for their convenience. Trying to get the bill paid in the morning was a joke. No one knew how to do it as the owner wasn't due in until 9 and we needed to leave st 8. Am sure it's a lovely place for Octogenarians reminiscing about their boarding school days but frankly the Youth Hostel by the Pyg route was more comfortable , half the price and much better service.

"Book early if you want th better rooms"
"Ask for the corner room (not ensuite) -- fab view, v quiet and atmosperic"
"do not worry about the shared bathroom facilities, they are absolutely beautiful! and worth the room rate themselves! ;)"
"Quieter rooms are at the rear of the hotel."
"quiet, old fashioned service, but no modern 3 pin plugs in room!"
