“Lovely hotel.”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Spent two nights at this hotel in March. Staff are very welcoming and check in was easy. We stayed in rm 423 Clean and tidy and well furnished, the only down side was the flat screen TV was small and fitted to the wall on the other side of the big room, which made it difficult to see.
We ate in the restaurant on the first night. I was rather disappointed with the quality of the food. I ordered the Beer battered fillet of Cod with chips and peas. For the price I paid I expected top quality food. What I got was two small fish tail ends (Cod questionable) and a couple of frozen chips and frozen pease. My partner ordered the risotto and pan fried Seabass fillet. unfortunately the chef had placed the Seabass on top of the Risotto and then for some strange reason poured on the cooking oil which was left floating on top of the risotto, breakfast however was first class. All in all a nice Hotel, well located and within walking distance to the Castle. We would return and recommend the hotel.

Great place to stay. Very clean even down to the public toilets in the bar.

Food is excellent. We stayed for two nights having dinner on the first but decided to stay in and have it on the second too as it was so good.

The pool is a little small but then again they do have a pool. Slightly spoiled by undisciplined teenagers from selfish parents, i.e. they went to the sauna and left them unchecked.

Returned yesterday from 1 night stay on a Groupon voucher from The Celtic Royal Hotel, in Caernarfon. We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is really lovely with a beautiful staircase, there is a lift, which was very useful for our old legs! the room was lovely, very nicely furnished and just the right temperature, not too hot or too cold. there was a very good shower and lots of hot water. All the staff were very friendly and very helpful, a credit to the hotel. We had a very relaxing swim in the pool and we also tried the steam room, which was very hot!!! lol
The evening meal, which was part of the voucher was excellent. We could have anything off the menu up to the value of £19.95 and then pay any extra, which was great. the food was very well cooked and presented and very hot with hot dished and plates....I have a thing about cold plates and tepid food. The buffet breakfast was very tasty and plentiful. I would definitely recommend this hotel, it is very central for touring, very reasonable and extremely good time was had by myself and hubby. Thank you everyone there.x

Celtic Royal is a really is a rather grand hotel! Enter through the revolving doors into huge reception with comfy sofas, leading to modern bar area and separate plush restaurant. Also onsite is a large heated pool with sauna and steam room, gym, and towels provided (£1 needed for locker)!
Hotel staff are all really friendly and helpful.
We visited out of season so most restaurants in the town were closed so we ended up eating in the hotel bar. The bar area is very comfy if a little dark?! Food is good, big portions and very reasonably priced.
Our room was good. Decor was quite dated and a little bland but still in good condition. Large ensuite bathroom with bath, was very clean...massive soft towels! :)
Breakfast was brilliant...huge spread for continental and cooked options...plenty of juice and fruit which was great.

Only criticisms would be that the advertised jacuzzi was not a jacuzzi...was not hot at all!(minor detail i know!) and the car park was very steep at the back of the hotel and you'll need to know your reg. plate on arrival to save two more trips to find out reg. plate then another to display car park badge!

Would definately recommend to others and would definately stay again :)

We booked this hotel for a week end in February for our son fifth birthday.
We had a great deal of £160 B&B for 2 nights.
We thought the room was really nice and a good enough size for the 4 of us. they put a cot bed for our baby and there was plenty of room.
We thought the breakfast was great, the staff were all really friendly and could not do enough for you.
One morning my wife asked for a banana for our baby and they realised they did not have one in the kitchen so they went to Asda opposite to get some ! great service.
We ate in on the second night as everything was booked up in town and we had a great meal for a reasonable price in the bar area.
We also tried the pool which is well worth a try. it is a good size and was great for the kids.
All in all a great hotel for a great price.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely hotel. The staff were kind and attentive without being obsequious and the hotel felt cosy and safe on a wet and cold night.
I ate in the bar and had a delicious 3 course meal, the breakfast was cooked fresh to order too. I would gladly return here for a holiday!
The staff had no problem in allowing me to park over the day for my meeting too.

The hotel was welcoming, warm and the staff were polite and helpful, free parking is close by and plentiful. There was a rather strong smell of chlorine from the swimming pool as you entered, but can't say it bothered us. The hotel bar was OK, but not somewhere you'd really want to linger, and there were no real ales....always a let down for my husband! Our executive room was on the corner of the building so had double aspect windows with a good view of the sea. It was over warm for us, but in order to open the windows you had to open the secondary glazing which made it noisy, we overcame this by leaving them open whilst we were out and closing them when got back. Overall decor was good, bathroom clean and pleasant, but the carpets, (as is the case of most hotels I visit) could do with a good shampooing! Breakfast was excellent, one of the best I've had in some time! We did not get around to eating dinner in the town, so ordered sandwiches in our room, which were fresh tasty and well presented. Didn't use pool/spa so can't comment, but it looked nice!
