The Golden Fleece Inn
Ranked #2 of 5 Tremadog B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 22, 2011

Spent 2 nights in the Golden Fleece with 2 friends. We all had double rooms for single occupancy at £39 per night. All rooms cosy, en suite and well appointed.

Excellent quality, but quite pricey food available in the pub although some confusion lies between the Bistro and pub menus We ordered from both menus not understanding they were separate businesses, but it was not a problem and all meals arrived at the same time. Not sure if the same would happen if the Bistro was busy.

Breakfast good and cooked to order. Free wi-fi in the pub and bedrooms, and free parking outside the hotel.

Tremadog is 10 minutes walk from Porthmadog town centre, and the Golden Fleece 15 mins walk to Porthmadog Harbour station for the Welsh Highland and Festiniog Railways.

Looking forward to returning.

I stayed here whilst visiting Portmeirion. The attraction of 'bed, food, music and good beer' all under one cover encouraged us to stay. I had read the tripadvisor comments prior to leaving for The Golden Fleece, some very cutting, obviously prior to the room refurbishment. The rooms are modern ( see the website, the pictures are accurate!), with ipod dock, flat screen TV, good hospitality tray and very comfy beds! The noise level was zero, ensuring a good nights sleep.It was clean, although the shower cubical could have done with a better scrub!
The pub is great! A proper old pub serving great beer and delicious homemade food ( the veg lasagne and steak pies brilliant and served with homemade chips), if you are lucky you will witness some local folkies playing the banjo, acordian and guitars in the corner, adding to the ambiance. Breakfast was fine, cereals and a good fry up! The staff were all friendly and helpful. I can only imagine that this place is on the up as its such a gem! Try it you will like it!

We have just returned from 2 nights at the Golden Fleece, the staff are friendly and the owner Stuart was keen to make our stay comfortable.

We were lucky to enjoy a nicely cooked steak and then listen to some live acoustic music in the bar.. the bar itself is cosy with a good atmosphere. The pub has been extended out to now house a pizzeria which we didn't go into.

Really nice stay, clean room, decent breakfast (although some orange juice would of been nice) and good location to explore Snowdownia.

Paid for this place in advance which was a major mistake. When we arrived we could not gain entry and so my husband went around the back where he saw someone inside looking out the window at him! When he eventually answered the door my husband said that we were booked in there for 2 nights: The worker there said `Are you? don`t think we`ve got you down` My husband explained that they better had as we`d paid £125! Eventually let in. What an absolute disgrace : We were in a 3 bedded room which over looked some flattish roof with air con or some sort of machineryon it. 2 plastic chirs in the room, stained carpet, uncleaned shower tray (Long hair in it) towel rail hanging off the wall. The bottom of the bed was torn and hanging off, wall paper hanging off the walls, stained (Brown) ceiling which looked like rain stains or something. The quality of the furnishig was very very bad. Outside the room the small landing was dark, dirty and grotty; there was rubbish on a shelf some off which was and old plastic toilet brush set which was the last straw for me so despite having paid £125 we left after 1 hour and found somewhere else to stay. It was a very expensive experience for us having to pay for somewhere else but after travelling 4 1/2 hours we wanted to rest in a clean, pleasant environment not this filthy, disgusting excuse for a B&B. It wants shutting down...

If you were not satisfied with your accommodation you should have spoke to a member of staff or management who would have been more than happy to refund you your money in full or offer you alternatve accommodation.
I would suggest it strange that you have not complained to any one about this befor leaving having paid £125.
If things were that bad and I had been in your situation i most definatly would complain to the manager and insist on a refund or alternative accommodation.
This would be the ordinary and sensible route for any one wishing to make a complaint.

We have NEVER had plastic chairs in room 3 they were and are infact Italian leather chairs imported by ourseves.

We are currently operateating at an average occupancy of 73-75% and this looks set to rise in June. This is a very respectable ocupancy rate even for large hotel operators, and we do not acheive these figures by offering the standard of accommodation which you have outlined.
Kind regards

A Small and old Inn consisting of 3 bedrooms above the bar and restaurant.

Rooms are all clean and although old in good condition.

There always seemed to be plenty of hot water and the food served downstairs is of an excellent quality.

Every Tuesday there is live music in the bar which I was worried about as I had to go to work the next day, but it finished early and was not disturbing to me in my room at all.

Breakfast is a bit limited in choice and is served a bit late for me 8:30-9:00am but was of good quality and was fresh.

I am defiantly going to stay in this Inn again.
