This hotel is ideally situated on the main street of Llanberis which is perfect for exploring the Snowdonia region. We checked out various available rooms on our arrival and selected one on the second floor as it was slightly larger and equipped with a bath rather than a shower. Although in need of some re-decoration which I understand is soon to be carried out, the room had all the facilities you could wish for with clean linen, towels, and as much piping hot water as you could wish for. The only minor problem was a lack of electricity sockets - there only seemed to be 2 to run the TV, clock, hairdrier, kettle and any additional equipment that guests may bring along. However, the room was warm with radiators in the room itself as well as in the bathroom.
The lounge bar (presided over by George the talkative parrot) was very comfortable, and the restaurant provided a good selection of good value meals catering for all tastes. Breakfast was served in the conservatory - help yourself cereals and toast, with the cooked items being served fresh from the kitchen.
There are a couple of other bars within the hotel - a sports bar which seems to cater more for the locals, and another large bar/restaurant where entertainment or bingo takes place periodically..
Outside is a beer garden, but as the weather was autumnal no-one was taking advantage of it. Car parking is adequate right outside the door.
The owners and staff were very welcoming, polite and friendly, and seemed keen to ensure that the guests were happy.
It is important to note that we gathered that the owners have only taken over the hotel a couple of years ago and they are working hard to get all the work done that needs to be done - we would wish them every success in building up the business and would certainly recommend the Padarn Lake Hotel to future travellers.
