Stayed here for one night and ate in the restaurant downstairs. What a charming little place this is, has parking facilities (free too, which is rare in this day of age!) and in perfect walking distance to the shops and walking routes. We stayed in Room 9B, a delightful room with a adjoining seperate room with a single bed, perfect if you have children or a snoring partner! It also boasts a four poster bed, lovely big balcony and jacuzzi hot tub with wild currents! May I point out, the negative reviews which criticize the rooms must be down to personal taste, TIP: do not stay here if you like minimal, bland, clinical looking rooms. Here you will get the odd creak in the floor and crack in the wood but that is what adds to the charm of this quaint little coaching inn. Was so refreshing to stay in a room with a bit of character. Couldn't fault the cleanliness of this room and beautiful white bedding which aided a perfect sleep. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant and we thouroughly enjoyed our stay. Now moving on to the restaurant, and wow, you will not be left with an empty tummy here! Luxury low ceiling feature and lots of little interesting decor, but you can also eat in the bar area too. A complimentary shot of gazpacho on arrival before we had even looked at the menu, and what a menu it was!! So much choice, and so many tempting dishes made the decisions very difficult. Both my partner and I ordered theMarinated Prawns & Crayfish St Jacques - Absolutely delicious. For mains I ordered the Slow Roasted Gelli Farm Iron Age Forest Reared Pork Belly, Minted Mushy Pea’s with Port Jus and my partner, Ty Gwyn Tower Block: Extra Mature Welsh Fillet Steak, Black Pudding, Salami, Topped with Mature Cheddar Gratin and Garlic Crouton with Pepper Sauce. Firstly the portion sizes need another mention -EPIC but it wasn't just quantity as the quality was paired to this. I couldn't even finish my pork but gave a good effort. All washed down with a lovely bottle of rioja served in crystal glasses (where do you ever get that these days!?) The head chef Martin is clearly passionate about serving good food and all of his produce is local, including his pigs next door!
I can not recommend a place higher and it is undoubtedly the best place to stay/eat in Betws-y-Coed if not the whole of North Wales. P.S don't forget the free breakfast in the morning. I can only assume it was a good as the evening meal but the bed was so comfy we slept through.
Enjoy and take a look at the pictures I took too!
