Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

We stayed for one night in May 2013.
The location of the inn is wonderful, however we thought the interior is in need of some attention. Our room was well presented and quite clean, but the TV was a small old crt type with a dirty remote. Furthermore, the bathroom was carpeted and had bleach stains around the toilet. Apart from these two points, the room was good.
The breakfast was nice and the staff were friendly.

Stayed 1 night on our way to Pothmadog and we were very pleased. We had a very warm welcome from Ann she was really pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. The room was on the small size but it suited our needs could have done with a bedside cabinet as hubby always takes his book, glass of water and clock and we had to put these on the floor but that is only a minor flaw. We ate in the lounge and found the meals to be well cooked and of a generous portion, they were very busy and we found a very nice atmosphere. Breakfast was good and I would recommend for a nice overnight stay.

Stayed just one night when walking Offa's Dyke Path. Ann excellent host and attended to all our requests with charm and helpfulness. Rooms warm and cosy - quite small and no twins. Tony offered to take us back to route in morning - saving us a mile of tough walking at the start of the day. Very enjoyable visit.

We noticed the 5star hygiene rating on the door as we arrived. Our room looked down towards Llangollen with the ruins of the Valle Crucis Abbey visible from the window. The room was warm and comfortable, the food excellent and the welcome made it a perfect stay.
It isn't the first time we stayed here, but the fourth. We periodically visit elderly relatives in the area and the Britannia has become our considered preference. It is a family concern and the ambiance of the place makes it attractive. We have never been disappointed and will continue to be regular visitors.

We arrived early afternoon on a very cold day in February. Although a little early we were immediately taken to our room after a friendly welcome. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was amazing with it's beams and half tester curtained bed, which was very comfortable. We ate an evening meal in their restaurant. The menu was wide and the food was plentiful! It was freshly cooked and very tasty. The breakfast was good. I chose the smoked haddock and poached eggs, included in the B&B rate, and would thoroughly recommend it. It was a warm welcoming place to stay. Don't stay here if you like big modern hotels, this is 14th century building so rooms are small and cosy with low ceilings! It was a perfect setting on a cold snowy February evening!

Room Tip: If you want a shower read the room descriptions carefully as ceilings are low and not all bathrooms...

We initially dismissed this place as the pictures on the net made it look a bit outdated but I have to say I was wrong - what a gem this is. The people make it, they are so warm and welcoming and the lady who owns it was wonderful. The menu was simple but was cooked perfectly and we had no complaints at all, infact we thought it was fantastic and we are generally quite fussy.

Thank you guys for your hospitality and we hope to be back soon!

We didn't actually stay here, we just ate here as we noticed it passing one day, beautiful old building, very homely and welcoming, staff could not do enough for us. We all had beef roast diners, we have never tasted anything like it. Food was brilliant and we will be returning very soon :-)
