The Vagabond
Reviewed April 6, 2010

Myself and and three friends stayed here at the start of august as we had planned to walk up Mt Snowdon. We all found the place clean with everything we needed for a self catering walking holiday, a fully equipped kitchen with complimentary tea and coffee ***** and also a bar.Our room was plenty big enough for the four of us and I am aware that there are larger rooms for bigger groups, I would feel very comfortable staying here on my own as the staff were very friendly and made the effort to make us feel welcome. We are defenately planning to stay there again summer 2010.

Friend and I booked a few nights last August - walked in, walked out - combination of the dirty rooms ( stained bedding, floors), black mold around the windows, apparent mouse in the kitchen ( never saw it but others lads apparently had their food nibbled), odd shower arrangements - maybe the breakfast was great - didnt stay around to have it .....

We booked 2 8 person bunk rooms for an outdoor/ adventure focused stag do. It was clean, efficient and well positioned.
Owners were friendly and made us feel at home. They were also very helpful.

Parking could be a little tricky for large groups with lots of drived but this was not an issue for us as we had a small minibus.

We (group of 9) used the Vagabond as a base for two nights whilst we were mountain biking the Marin Trail. Car parking was a bit difficult but we managed as did others, and then went straight to the bar (thirsty work driving down from Yorkshire!!). Friendly greeting and very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The bunkroom catered for our group sufficiently, but no hotel review can let you know what to expect from the people you are bunking with?? It was clean enough, with all the necessary utilities we needed.
