I didn't stay at the PYG, but booked for an evening meal for two of us. Booking is needed for evening meals as it is generally residents who eat there, but open to the public depending on table space. There is one dinner sitting at 7:30. It is a 3 course menu at £25.00 per head (two starter options, two...

Welcome: Good. Efficient and friendly. Room: New looking. Well decorated. One small waste bin. No hair drier. No water provided. No room to room phone. Room was £75 pppn, so £150....high price for limited facilities. Evening meal: served at 7:30pm, choice of starters, mains and puddings. Welsh cheeses but not identified. Supper served was tasty enough but I think the...

Stopped off for some well earned refreshments after a day on the local Mountains, a party of 4, all of whom had done different hill walks and routes. Locally, the cellphone coverage is 'iffy' at best and could/should be improved bit that is another story... I digress... Trying to herd my friends to the PYG Hotel, requires the use of...

We took over the hotel for a weekend of walking and swimming in March 2017. The hotel could not have been more accommodating - food preferences, arrival times, etc. The hotel had only just opened for the year, but this is an historic gem - home to mountaineering history (where Sir Edmund Hillary and his team hung out while getting...

My fiancé and I stayed for a night, the service, food, accommodation and ambiance can't be faulted. This place oozes historical character and it feels like you are stepping back in time from the minute you enter, and all this is in the most wonderful part of the uk.

Wonderful old pub / hotel full of character, with friendly, welcoming staff. I stayed for two nights back in May 2016 and had a fantastic time. It wouldn't do for those looking for pretentious luxury but that is a huge part of its charm. Room was basic but absolutely fine, the food was very good, as was the beer and...

I've read the reviews of this place before writing my own and although most are positive, some are not. Mine is extremely positive. The Pen-Y-Gwryd is a little gem. Make sure you arrive for lunch between 12 & 2 or you won't get any. They may not even open the door. Also they close during the week in the winter...

A very quirky hotel in the heart of snowdonia. The food is excellent with extremely friendly staff. If you like the unusual go for it. The walking from the hotel is excellent with many other interesting places to visit close at hand.

The moment we stepped into the PYG the décor took us back to Darjeeling! There is a very similar hostelry there, The Windamere, which is like drifting back to an era when open fires, gloved waiters and eiderdowns were the norm in country hotels. The PYG doesn't quite have the gloved waiters but the dinner gong, the butter and marmalade...
