Nice place and location with menai river view. Staff was very good and co-operating. Stayed for 2 nights and loved the place and rooms. Opted for penthouse with 2 rooms, was very cosy and clean had initial problems with hot water which was fixed later. Overall would rate good and recommend it. Thanks to mandy for all.

Room Tip: Go for rooms with sea view facing........

Just stayed 3 nights and found the staff very helpful, nice and quiet area with good views. Bed was comfy and facilities in room were adequate.

Close to Snowdon, Anglesey, ZipWorld and shopping close by. Good bus service from y felineli to Bangor and Caenarfon.

Swimming Pool on sight available for 'refreshing' dip.....

We stayed at Port Dinorwic the week before Easter.
We wanted an apartment with enough space for the 5 of us.
We got that and more. The accomadation is fine - reading the reviews about tired level of decor - i would agree to an extent but this is functional and the service is exceptional.
The staff are extremely friendly and do go out of thier way to help an advise on the local attractions and other points in the area.
The breakfast is filling and cooked to order.
The location for Snowdonia and the north wales coast is superb.
We got a sea view and more.
The place is warm and cosy - it is worth a look. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and our apartment offered us the flexibility of being in a hotel whilst still having cooking facilities when we required them.
This is not the plastic feel of a chain hotel which can be the same the country over - this is a family hotel and for that it should be commended.

Room Tip: Ring them up and talk to them. They are extremely friendly.

Me and my boyfriend have just got back from our first getaway together and stayed at this lovely hotel for 2 nights. The hotel has a lovely feel to it and is situated in a great place. When we arrived we received a warm welcome to the hotel by the staff who are happy to help you with anything you need. On one of the nights we fancied a late night swim and sauna after a long day walking and the staff were happy to open the pool up for us to enjoy a late night swim! The hotel staff are very friendly and go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your visit, they gave us suggestions on places to go in the area and anything we asked for was never too much trouble for them (this includes giving my greedy boyfriend extras with his breakfast). I've stayed in many chain hotels and never received the same hospitality as I did here. It's a lovely place to stay and we will be returning again in the near future.

I fail to see how the reviews of this place are so positive.
Everywhere you look the place is in a state of needing fixing including a missing balcony with a chair on it to the tower with doors that don't lock to toilets in the rooms!
The positive reviews must come from people who have never stayed away from home!

Room Tip: Don't go to the tower - it is awful

Definitely a touch of the Basils about this cartoon character of a place.It sits on a promontory above a marina and with a stunning view of the Menai Straits. Its pink-washed walls give it its nickname, the Pink Palace - but you half expect the Pink Panther to show up they way it's run. The design seems to be by Billy Bodger out of B and Q, with carpets laid without joining strips and cheap,ill-fitting doors. Outside, one of the balconies has done a runner but no-one seems to have noticed.But there is a certain West End farce charm about manager Mandy and her team, who have lots of fizz but little sophistication. Food was decent enough, though and our room was clean. Lots of potential. And you've got to hand it to the indefatigable owner. At 90 she'd just completed a 100mph zip wire adventure up the road in Snowdonia. Give it go. You'll have a laugh.

Room Tip: Avoid the Tower. It's by the sea but surroundings are scruffy
