I think they call it 'shabby chic' !!.....stayed in room 11, this has not been touched for probably 20 years, threadbare carpet etc etc so best avoid this room. Best bits were the character and the staff. We were served by a young Polish and Swedish girl and they were both excellent. Just to warn future customers ....you have to... More

Rooms are fair (dated) but the staff is delightful and the meals were excellent. Feels like going back in time to the 50's and the history of the place itself is marvelous with a great location for next-day hiking of the Snowdonia mountains.

I have stayed at the PYG 3 or 4 times over the years, recently just a few weeks ago and always loved it. It is not like anywhere else and does not suit everybody, although, as a recent review said, there are different standards of room so if you require more 21st century comforts (eg ES bathroom) be sure to...

A return visit, this time as a members of a party of 15, age ranging from 5 to 70. It is always a delight to return to Pen-y-Gwryd Hotel. The staff are always so friendly and welcoming, and it is a slightly eccentrically wonderful place, full of history. As it was a special occasion we booked one of the newer,... More

Have visited this hotel over a number of years and stayed there once. Called in on Wednesday 14th Sept. Ordered a pint of the Glaslyn beer only to find it cloudy and tasting odd. Took it back and was confronted by the rudest and most unhelpful person. I think she was the manager? I was told that the beer was... More

I was looking forward to staying here as it is such a historical hotel where mountaineers used to train for Everest but it was still in the 18th Century. It was dark, very old fashioned, the facilities were very poor - no ensuites or tea making facilities, breakfast wasn't served until 8.30 - most people wanted to be out on... More

Visited on 30 August 2016. £90 for the night, which included breakfast. So I shall break this down (and with a mark out of 10) Staff (10) - Very friendly and accomodating. Absolutely no complaints there. Room (9) - Room was adequate for 2 guys (we had room 3, upstairs overlooking the garden). Slept well, bed and sheets very comfortable;... More

Due to a family bereavement I had to cancel my reservation at the hotel at short notice - Tuesday for Friday booking. The person I spoke to said there would be a charge without telling me how much. He said they required 2 weeks notice. When I explained the reason he said the policy was on the website and they... More
