We come here every year for a weekend with family and friends, we really love the fact that it hardly changes, the owners are very welcoming and the food locally sourced and delicious. Three course dinner is £25 including coffee which is served in the residents lounge. My vegetarian friend is always happy with the option they provide for her. Games room now has a TV along with free wifi, table tennis table and pool table. The decor and furniture is very 1950s but this gives the hotel its character. We've stayed in 3 of the room personally and seen another 3 where friends have stayed and they all have had power sockets in the rooms though not always where you want them so I take an extension multi socket and travel kettle.
It is a small hotel with limited en suite rooms and fixed meal times but the shared bathrooms are fabulously victorian. £50 pppn (en suite rate) for B&B is very reasonable when you are close enough to start your Snowdon walk from the hotel itself. We had the garden room as we wanted a bit more room for our travel cot. Brass 4 poster bed is comfortable but you do have to walk across the courtyard to the main part of the hotel which isn't as convenient when it is wet. It has a bathroom (no shower) which is what we wanted for our 16 month old son and a lovely view of the back gardens. Shame we had such poor weather and couldn't use the outside space, 'natural' pool and sauna. There is a drying room for wet walking clothes and we made full use of that this year !
Waitresses made a fuss of my son again this year and there was no charge for him. Service is so fast because there is limited choice that he didn't get chance to get bored waiting for his dinner or breakfast.
You always meet interesting people many of whom like us are repeat visitors.
