We have stayed here many times and have just returned from a 9 day break. This is our favourite place to unwind and relax. All the staff are so friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble,for them,,from the moment we arrived with a great welcome by Mandy.
It is great to have such an atmospheric pub with a restaurant as well, giving you a choice of formal or casual dining.The food is excellent,and mainly sourced locally.
Rooms are lovely,with huge comfy beds,and spacious bathrooms, de luxe rooms have large fluffy bathrobes also.
A welcome addition is the Petanque pitch in the car park.
There is an excellent decked rear area to eat /have a drink overlooking the Hills at the rear,
Looking forward to our next trip now.

Stayed here during May hald term holiday with two children and our large labrador (dogs allowed in some rooms). Family room was very nice. Spacious enough for all of us with a nice bath and complimetary doggy bowls! Room was spotless. Reception staff very helpful and attentive. Booked room, breakfast and dinner for 3 nights. The breakfast was huge and very tasty with lots of freshly cooked options. Dinner was nice, gourmet pub food. Good sized, well cooked and very good service. Attentive to the children and happy to deal with their quirks and needs at mealtimes. Need a car as is a drive out of Conwy itself, but in the valley with very pretty views of the national park foothills to one side and the Conwy river to the other. Would definitely recommend and hope to return soon!

This is one of my favourite places. We stayed for 2 nights in march arriving on my birthday. Booked the deluxe room overlooking the hills. Just beautiful. Lovely room. Huge bed. And comfortable bath robes. Had our meals in the restaurant. Great food and relaxing atmosphere. Mandy made us very welcome and mike's pleasant bar manner made us feel very welcome.

We returned with my mother-law, father in-law, sister in-law and our son in June for my mother-in-laws 70th birthday. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Mandy organised three lovely deluxe rooms for our stay, overlooking the hills. We had our meals again in the restaurant which were gorgeous. I recommend the gold award winning steak.

The weather was gorgeous during our stay and we visited nearby bodnant gardens, Conwy and port merion. All thoroughly enjoyable.

We are eagerly awaiting our next stay.

Believe all the excellent reviews available on trip advisor. This Inn, the first licenced pub in Wales in 1573, certainly has that preserved 'olde-worldy' feel with warming log fires, atmospheric lighting, and an engaging and welcoming staff.
Restaurant food is exceptional with the rack of lamb the best I have had in quite a while. Breakfasts are hearty and the waitressing staff only too eager to accommodate all tastes with a 'can-do' approach.
Rooms are very comfortable with good decor and a fantastically invigorating power-shower to re-energise tired body and soul.
In summation, a thoroughly recommended, ideally situated base to stay in North wales.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms are worth the extra purely for the open air aspect, views and away from the fast road...

I say a day, i mean a weekend. We have been fortunate to have swept in and been the first couple to marry under the roof of the fabulous Groes Inn. I can simply say thank you to all involved. Justin and Jane, Dawn, Mandy and Mike you all excelled in making this special day that bit more special. All of our guests commented on your graceful and accommodating presence throughout the weekend.

The Groes is a fantastic pub with a superb and relaxed atmosphere. The ales (particularly the 'house' groes ale is itself enough to drive many miles for!). The little touches made the day (and the eve before) tremendous, all the way from the monsterously sized scotch eggs to the requested ale on tap!

All our guests commented on the bar skill of Mike (and whiskey knowledge), the wonderful smiles of the Jane and Justin, the last minute gardening touches of Dawn and the radiating calm of Mandy (even the local knowledge of where to catch the football the following day!!!).

We stayed at the hotel with a group of friends for May bank holiday. We were made very welcome by Mandy and received an excellent service throughout our stay from all the staff. Nothing was too much trouble, even bringing three weary walkers a cocktail to our rooms!

The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Showers hot and fierce (though we always managed to flood the bathroom floor) and the Molton Brown toiletries a lovely touch.

We ate in the restaurant both nights and enjoyed good pub grub & well stocked bar!

Our only complaint... we felt cheated that our friends had rooms overlooking the valley and we were on the road... Hope to visit again soon & will bring the dog!!

Thanks Mandy & team
