Myself, my husband, and our two young daughters stayed at Plas Curig Hostel from June 1st-6th 2012. Immediately we were impressed with the location of the hostel. With the views, the proximity of Swallow Falls and Betws-y-Coed, ample hiking nearby, local pubs and other eateries it was obvious there was no better place to have stayed.
As impressive as the location of this stunning hostel was the impeccable interior design. From the luxury bedding and beautiful built-in bunk beds, to the salvaged original hardwood floor accenting the dining room; It was obvious the owner did not miss an opportunity to impress nor did they overlook a single detail. The common kitchen/dining area was plenty large enough to accommodate a full house. Looking back, the fireplace room is easily one of our most enjoyable experiences of staying at Plas Curig. Strangers quickly became familiar with one another gathered around the fire picking guitars, laughing and conversing.
This was my first time to North Wales, the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful in suggesting places to see and experience while we were there. My husband very much appreciated the time they took to inform him of the best areas to hike, taking into account what kind of experience he had with trekking. With two small children, I certainly appreciated the advice on the best places to hike with the children, and other activities nearby which were suited for ‘family’ adventures.
We have recommended Plas Curig to all of our friends and family considering North Wales for their next vacation spot or quick weekend get-away. I look forward to many more family trips to the Snowdon area and to Plas Curig!
