My mother and I stayed for one night last Bank Holiday weekend as we wanted somewhere to stay before climbing Snowdon the next day. We were very pleasantly surprised with our stay here, the location is incredibly scenic and the whole place has a very friendly and welcoming stay about it.

What really sets the hotel apart is the friendliness of the staff. On arrival we were greeted by a young man who happily chatted and joked around with us before offering to help find us somewhere for dinner that evening - you could tell he was being genuinely nice rather than just putting on a show because we were a customer. Similarly the woman who checked us out the day after was really conversational and helpful.

The room was nice with views of the sea and the bathroom was very spacious and clean.

We didn't eat there but the breakfast looked great and the bar area was cosy. We will definitely be returning but next time for longer!

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

Stayed for Bank Holiday weekend on a walking break in Snowdonia.

We had an apartment which had 180-degree views of the Menai Straits, the room was fresh, clean and tidy. Couldn't have asked for more!

The hotel staff were all very helpful and friendly.

Breakfast was well worth it (make sure you opt for two eggs!)

Will definitely be staying again when we return -- a real gem of a hotel!

Room Tip: Go for an apartment - the views are worth the extra money!

Just got home from a brilliant weekend at Plas Dinorwic. Staff made you feel very welcome form the moment you walked through the door. Our room over looked the Menai Straits, clean and tidy. And what a great view we had. Nothing was to much trouble.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the Mainai Straits.

We found another great place to stay in North Wales! This time, however, it was not just the accommodation, but also the experience. It started even before our actual arrival with the friendly voice on the other side of the line when we booked. Hadyen was absolutely brilliant! He made us feel welcome even before our arrival. And then there was Mandy at reception! Thank you Mandy for making us feel wellcome and at home. The moment we stepped into the lounge and reception area we were transposed into a different world! The furniture and decor demonstrate style and good taste. The atmosphere was warm and homely. We asked for accommodation downstairs and were offerred Deck 1, a fantastic spacious and comfortable suite. Four poster bed, dining room table and lounge suite all ours to enjoy at our leisure. We were even served coffee in the room which anyway had all the facilities to make our own coffee. We also had a room upstairs in the main building - equally well fitted, clean and with all the necessary facilities. The bathrooms in both rooms were clean, well maintained and fully equipped . The views on the river are magnificent from the rooms as well as from the conservatory type dining room. Following a good night's rest in a quite environment, our cooked breakfast in the morning was served with a personal touch. Check out in the morning was fast and efficient. All in all a brilliant experience. Do not hesitate to book and stay at this hotel!

Room Tip: Deck 1 is a winner!

The views are stunning imediately from the room looking down the Menai strait and the staff make you feel like you are very welcome, one of the family. Its a home from home experience that makes you want to come back. Unlike most hotels where you are just a number this place has a personalised feel.

Stayed in the Tower which is a fantastic and unique experience. Great views over the Menai Strait and the Marina. The hotel is ideally located halfway between Bangor and Caernarfon and provides easy road access to Snowdownia and Anglesey. The staff were brilliant and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent. I have already recommended the hotel to my extended family and friends. When visiting North Wales again will definately look to stay here again.

Lovely friendly place and atmosphere. Superb views from our penthouse suite across the estuary. Spotlessly clean accommodation and facilities ( swimming pool and sauna). Friendly and helpful staff who make your stay a pleasure. Excellent food. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Recommend the views from the penthouse suites.
