Sue and I spent Christmas at the Lion Hotel in Criccieth with Barnes Coaches Swindon. We left on 20th.Dec. and returned 27th.Dec.. Every thing about this break was brilliant. The coach trip to North Wales was very good, with comfort stops and lunch on the way. The hotel was family run and very homely. Food was exceptionally good and the staff were very helpful and friendly, the rooms were comfy and clean. The lounges were very comfortable....with roaring fires and lovely arm chairs to relax in. The entertainment every night was very good, and the drinks at the bar were at bar prices. All in all a wonderful holiday, full marks to The Lion Hotel and full marks to Barnes Coaches

Room Tip: grab the armchairs by the fire !!

We our just about to leave the lion and am very sad to go. have been here for 7 days over the Christmas holidays.
The hotel is in good location and we were offerd a very friendly welcome after horrendous journey. offer of assistance was kindly taken and it was lovely to chill out in front of open fires.
The hotel is very nicely decorated in older style but that is perfect for us .
plenty of moden faceless hotels for those people like that.

but here you get a family run and friendly. very clean.
food in dining room was very varied and plenty of choice each evening and local welsh products.

Good entertainers each night varied to suit most tastes.

I was also taken back by jordan who worked there he was very freindly helpful and went the extra mile makeing you feel special. not that often this day and age.



Will be coming back already booked.

You will enjoy a stay here true welsh hospitality

Just arrived back after a five day stay at the Lion Hotel, very good food and compfortable rooms although the furniture in our room was from all our yesterdays but we did see other rooms and they were very modern, very friendly staff, entertainment average, Criccieth itself has nothing of interest only a ruined castle, would deffinately use the hotel again if it was in another place,

Room Tip: number 14 and 17 very nice fooms

Good clean room, very comfortable. Friendly staff. Breakfast good. Easy access to here via the bus services and train to next towns and within walking distance to some great pubs and dining places. Would stay here again on our next visit...

Stayed here for 5 days with a holiday group and was delighted with everything. My room was very clean and had a new bathroom. The food and service was excellent. I think the hotel was pretty full so the staggerd times for breakfast was a sensible idea although some people did grumble about it. I will look for future holidays that stay at the The Lion because I would love to stay there again.

Stayed at the Lion to meet some friends for a weekend break. Comfortable and clean and can only describe the staff as first class. Food was excellent with service to match. On the way back home to Cumbria I realised I had left a very expensive jacket in our room. Contacted reception who took the time and trouble to package it up very nicely and a big thank you to them for their efforts. Don't hesitate to book a break at this hotel
