Lake View
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Llanberis
Reviewed October 9, 2013

I cannot comment on the accommodation as we did not stay here but did come in for a meal.

The meal was reminiscent of school dinners; tough meat, bland sauce, under-seasoned rice and unenthusiastic service, still it was nice to get out of the rain and wind for a while!

The hotel is very quaint and 'oldie worldie' but was clean, which matters a great deal.
We also (like the last review) had the room where you walk through the bathroom to get to the bedroom, it was strange but if the room was the other way round you would not get the lake view except from the bathroom so was well worth it.
Due to a family emergency the restaurant was not open on the evening we stayed there but we did have breakfast and that was lovely.
The owners did arrive back during the evening and we found them very friendly and very concerned that the closure of the restaurant has not inconvenienced any of their guests.

The Lake View is run by a lovely couple, who have a warm and very friendly approach throughout your stay - you do feel very comfortable and welcome. Set in a great location, it's a walk into Llanberis itself, and does indeed have a 'Lake' view and beautiful mountain view.
This place is very old school, and you really feel very much 'in the sticks' as the lounge and dining areas are a bit like an old log cabin.... quite quaint and cosy.
This is a no frills experience in Llanberis on the tourist trek, set in beautiful scenery it was one of the cheaper locations locations locally. Oddly - we had a room which you had to go through the toilet/shower room to get in to the bedroom - this caused much amusement! The bed was okay, although not the best nights sleep I've ever had, and breakfast was usual and a little average, but okay. This is a good base for a day or two, but you might miss some of your creature comforts on a longer stay. Especially if you have an aching back from walking all day.

Room Tip: If you ask for a Lake View Room, make sure it's not the one with the bathroom to enter through...

This friendly place is a little tired but the hosts were friendly, helpful and the breakfast was excellent. We had a room without an en-suite and had a separate bathroom down the corridor. Our room was small and very tired in need of refurbishment as was the bathroom, but we did book the last room and other rooms may well be better. Ideal location for Snowdonia but there is some noise from the adjacent road

We just wanted somewhere to stay while we visited Llanberis and Mount Snowdon. We got what we wanted- but "no frills". The room was small and the bed was not very comfortable. The pillows were (curiously) just loose batting rolled up in the pillow cases. However, the host was very helpful with recommendations about the area (where to eat, paths to take).

Recently stayed at Lake View Hotel whilst working in LLanberis. The hosts Mike and Carrie were excellent, always received a warm welcome. The breakfasts were perfect to set you up for the day, and the evening meals were superb. This establishment is not to be missed.

Having stayed at this hotel for 2 nights we found the staff to be very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a good breakfast in comfortable surroundings. We stayed in a small double room with separate bathroom-we knew this before we arrived so this wasn't a problem. The only downside was that the decor could do with a lift as it looked worn in places but this didn't detract from our stay. Plenty of parking spaces available. It was a little further out of Llanberis than we realised-about 1 1/2 miles from Snowdon railway. Would happily stay here again.
