We stayed here for four nights which we booked via the hotel website.
We'd seen this lovely place many times on our regular trips to Wales and decided to try it as our trip was to celebrate a birthday.
We received a quick email reply to confirm our booking and there was no problem booking in on our arrival.
The room (rm 5) was comfortable but small with no bathroom. There is a shower room and bathroom down the hall. The rooms are all apparently being refurbed. Ours had obviously had a recent update.
The food has had many good reviews and for excellent reason. We had breakfast each morning and booked one main meal. The rest of the time we ate out as there are plenty of places in Llandudno, Betws-y-coed etc. The meal prices are on the high side but when you see how much you get on your plate and the quality of the food, then it's worth every penny.
The staff are helpful and nothing seems to be too much trouble. We asked to switch rooms and they sorted this as soon as they were able. We also managed to lock ourselves out of our new room quite late at night and they managed to get us back in again after a member of staff squeezed through the little open window in our room................
The only minor negatives are parking issues, lack of ensuite facilities in some rooms and some cleanliness problems.
This is a busy hotel both for accommodation and in the restaurant. It is situated on a very busy main road with only a tiny parking area which will be used by the restaurant guests. We only managed to get a parking spot in the car park once.
When booking a room online, double check if you need an ensuite. This is not very obvious. And their own leaflet states all rooms have ensuite.
As stated, we did swap rooms. All the bathroom facilities we did use were in need of a deep clean or upgrading. A mouldy shower is never nice.
This is a fantastic hotel and worth every penny to either stay or just use the restaurant.
