“Staying in a 1970s timewarp”
Reviewed October 5, 2008

This was possibly a nice place to stay 20 or 30 years ago but it felt like little had changed since. The beds were comfortable, the telly worked well, and the shower was refreshing. Sadly, the bedroom and en suite as a whole felt tired, dusty and damp. The breakfast was more disappointing and was a stronger and unwelcome reminder of some of my less good childhood holiday memories - low quality ingredients in a lot of grease. Experiences eating elsewhere in Beddgelert were not much better. Anyone want to open a modern, fresh, honest pub/B&B in this wonderful location?
