“Never Again”
Reviewed September 3, 2010

Apart from the scenery surrounding this hotel, I really cannot say anything nice about this place. Very run down looking, the bar area especially looking old & tired. Some unsavoury looking characters frequent the place.

But worst of all is the terrible attitude of one bar man in particular (not a local man, possibly French), very rude & not at all a people person.

I will never again spend one more penny of my hard earned cash in this establishment.

we came to the hotel because of the reviews we read on the tripadvisor. we found 2 rooms quite old, one of them smelled from moist, the toilet were very poor and the cost dosn't really worth it. day before we stayed in a much chipper hotel with better
conditions. the food was great thogh....
i think the hotel can suit young peple, the area is beutifull and maybe 20 years ago i could have liked this hotel (for a better price).

We only ate here (hence we've given full marks for things we cannot comment on), however the whole experience eating here was terrible. We all had different meals but all of them were bland and tasteless. The service was extremely slow and the waitress was blunt to the point of being rude, politeness doesnt cost anything!

Other customers were also having the same bad experience - some leaving impatiently after making sure they had the exact money in order to not pay a tip. It put a dampner on an otherwise great time in Snowdonia.

Stayed here in April with nine friends for a walking weekend. Central location but it needs some TLC which Ithe new owners seem to be doing. Popular with locals; food and beer good. Very limited parking but a public car park can be foulnd just over the river bridge in front of hotel.

We didn't stay here but ate here a couple of times during our stay over Easter. This was the first place that wasn't crowded on a rainy Good Friday so with two grumpy, cold, wet children we headed in. On first glance the place looked a bit tired and I was a bit worried that the food might not be good. But how wrong was I?! The food was excellent, I had the home made steak pie and it was gorgeous. My kids had the sausage and mash and it was a proper sausage, not just a cheap one that are usually given to kids from a kids menu. By the end of the meal our grumpy one year old was giggling at the staff who were making a fuss of him.

The second time we went I had the pie again as I had enjoyed it so much the first time and my partner had the cheese burger, which again was hand made not just something cheap out of a packet.

I can't rate the accommodation but if they even put half as much effort in to it as they do the food then it should be a quality place to stay.

Didnt stay here, but we had evening meal twice in the bar. Food was excellent, the first time I tried the pan-fried salmon on a bed of parmesan flavoured risotto, while my wife had a lovely steak and ale pie. The next time I tried the pie and my wife had a delicous lamb shank.

There was a restaurant attached with the same menu, but the bar had such a good atmosphere we preferred it there.

Although the bar area is still bit old fashioned the restaurant has been recently refitted but most importantly the food is terrific - good combination of local produce with French flair and great with kids as you can have a proper meal and still let the kids have (home made) nuggets and chips! There are plenty of places in Betws y Coed still serving up typical tourist fodder so this is one place worth a visit
