Over twenty years ago and when my two sons were youngsters we to stayed many times in the top floor flats here, Lindsay and Ann had not long taken over the hotel and were beginning a programme of modernisation. I return every year with friends and family on my annual visits to North Wales and it's wonderful to see them both as enthusiastic and welcoming as ever.
Recently we ate twice in the restaurant, delicious well cooked and sourced local food and just the thing after a day's walking in the mountains and all that wholesome fresh air.
The Princes Arms is situated in the village of Trefriw, close by to Llanwrst and Betws y Coed with lovely views over the River Conwy and to the distant hills.
Plenty to do and Lindsay will arrange golf for residents at some of the finest courses and is a mine of useful information. Take a drive up the hill behind the hotel to Lake Crafnant where there is a delightful café and one can sit on the lake shore enjoying home made cakes and wonder at the view and tranquillity.
The Princes Arms is a fine example of a well run, excellent value and friendly hotel and if you haven't already been there then I suggest you do!
