We were travelling to Holyhead for a ferry and ended up in Conwy, looking for a place to stay. We found the number of the Groes Inn on the satnav and gave them a call. The person on the other end of the phone was very welcoming and said that she would be able to accommodate us.
When we arrived, we were shown to a most beautiful room, with stunning views, an enormous bed and a fabulous and well-stocked bathroom.
We ate in the bar. Interesting and varied menu with daily specials on a blackboard, aimed at more discerning palates. Our food was very good: between us we had a seafood platter, grilled sardines and pork meatballs with pasta.
There was a good choice for breakfast also. The breakfast service was a little perfunctory and we had to go searching for a coffee refill (a pot of coffee on the table might have been a better idea) but the food was good.
The Groes Inn is not really a place to stay if you are travelling with small children, and it is quite pricey but we (the adults) would be interested in returning for a treat getaway weekend.
