The staff at The Royal Oak hotel were very friendly and helpful, a warm welcome on arrival after a 4 1/2 hour drive. The room was a basic double an was on top of the Stables bar to the side. The room was cosy but could really do with freshening up and I was dreading getting to sleep hearing all the customers under our bedroom window in Stables. The room however was very clean and the bathroom clean, although the flooring was very grubby and could do with replacing. We went to The Stables in the afternoon to see the menu and have a glass of wine ..........very busy and full of kids and dogs............to noisy for us. We ate at The Grill Bar in the evening and whilst not the best ambiance the food was quite good. The waitress was very friendly and we had a good laugh with her despite being under pressure from the busy and moaning other guest. She also waited on us for breakfast and was still happy and cheerful. Off to bed and when we closed the windows we could not hear any of the noise from the bar under us........however due to the age of the hotel every time someone walked past our room in the corridor the floorboards creaked and bounced our bed.........luckily no one was wandering in the night!! We had a really good sleep. Good breakfast the next day went to breakfast 5 mins before opening 7:40 and still got a cheery welcome. We walked Snowdon on the Saturday, and when returning the room was tidied but could have done with a hoovering as there were still bits which had been there before we went out. Not wanting a big restaurant meal and feeling very tired after our Snowdon achievement we braved The stable bar........still very noisy with walkers, kids and dogs(why?!!). However the Salmon and lasagne were very tasty. Retreated to hotel bar for a night cap and bed. Check out receptionist was very helpful and gave us more maps and information about the area. I would definitely recommend the Royal Oak as Betwsy Coed is a lovely, vibrant town that has something to suit everyone. Having read the room information explaining refurbishment of the bar and restaurant, I would suggest spending some money on doing up the rooms, corridors and bringing the decor behind the front desk up to date
