I just reached home after a weekend in Snowdonia, and having stayed in many top hotels around the world, can say this ranks amongst the best, despite being a small family run business.
We chose this hotel as it's ideal location for accessing Snowdon, which we climbed on Saturday. we were originally a party of 14, which the owner, Rachel, managed to squeeze in despite being booked up. However the cold Easter and the snow that still covered Snowdon put some of the group off, so in the end only 6 made the trip. Rachel still gave us a huge welcome and made us feel like her personal family guests. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Rachel and her staff made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. She still gave us our original four rooms at her own loss. The hotel is clean, smart, modern, and its location by a beautiful river is brilliant. Free parking is available outside. the restaurant served amazing food, and having eaten in all of the best restaurants in London, this place is up there with the best. Most of the ingredients are local sourced and Head Chef Simon is great. he even went out of his way to make my friend veggie sausages when they didn't have any on the menu. Its not cheap but the food is worth it. many of the diners were not even residents, but guests from other hotels. The price included the best breakfast you will get anywhere. def try the sausages. Great additional features are free wifi, all the tea and coffee you can drink (for free). This is such a refreshing approach compared to the big brands where everything is charged for. The rooms are a good size, very clean and modern in appearance. Some rooms have showers whilst others have baths. There is even a bunk bed room for kids.
The thing I loved about this hotel is that Rachel goes out of her way to look after you and gives you loads of help and advice to get the most out of your stay. If you haven't been to Snowdonia before, I recommend you stay here and ask Rachel to help you plan your outings, where to go, what to do, etc. I shall def be visiting again with my family.
