I have just returned from a quick getaway in Snowdonia with my partner and my dog. I initially felt a bit apprehensive about booking the Gwydyr based on past reviews, however, I decided to take on board comments re: the recent change in management and give the place a go. I made the right decision!
Firstly, the location is fantastic. Right in the centre of the town with its own spacious car park.
Secondly, the welcome was by far one of the warmest I've ever received - particularly the fuss made of our four-legged friend who was made to feel welcome in all parts of the hotel, bar and restaurant....very unusual as most 'dog friendly' places make you leave the dog in the room at breakfast time - not here! Hugo (the dog) was even treated to his own sausage!
Our double room was comfortable, clean and warm - just what was needed after a days walking around Snowdon. The shower was hot and the towels super soft.
Both meals we ate in the hotel were well cooked and delicious. The evening meal menu consisted of simple dishes which we found to be fresh, well cooked and in generous portion sizes. I had the scampi and my partner had the rack of rib - both were excellent value for money.
My other half wanted to watch the champions league football match in the 'TV room' which was a large room and was therefore a little chilly in March! We were given our own heater, positioned right by the side of our table so were kept lovely and warm!
Breakfast was also well worth the £7.50 a head and consisted of premium branded cereals, fresh orange juice, tea, coffee, toast, premium branded preserves and a hearty full English.
Overall, I would definitely recommend the Gwydyr Hotel and will definitely return at some point in the near future.
