Reviewed May 17, 2013

This was the 3rd time we have stayed at the old bulls head and we have enjoyed it every time. On this occasion we stayed in the very up to date townhouse silver suite, we have previously stayed in Mr peggoty which is much more traditional. The room was quiet and well appointed. That said, we felt there was some style over substance issues the chairs in the room were very uncomfortable to sit in and the bathroom sink had no overflow which meant you could not put the plug in. We ate in the Brassiere. The food was good and the service given by the waiteress ( young and eastern european? ) was exceptional. The breakfast was very good.We also sat in the bar area, straight out of the 1940's and all the more fantastic for it. The car parking is a big issue there is very little room on the premises and we were advised as we were not staying in the main hotel we would need to move our car.The carpark on the sea front was suggested - do not park here as it is a pay carpark and a one night stay involves 2 days parking charges, the 2nd day starts at 6am so you might need to get up early, or risk a fine? very odd local council decision. I think the hotel could do more to get permits for residents. All that said we do really like this hotel and are looking forward to our next stay when we will be a little wiser.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn for two nights during April 2013.We stayed in the Ebony room in the Townhouse annexe which is easily accessed across the street from the main building and vice versa.We stayed on a B+B basis and dined in both the Brasserie and the Loft restaurant.Our total bill for this was circa £400 including some incidental drinks.We very much enjoyed the spacious and comfortable lounge with it's log fire,the Loft restaurant albeit we were the only diners for most of our meal!It was a Tuesday night and it's worth noting that the restaurant is closed Sunday and Monday evenings.The dining experience commences with pre-dinner drinks in the lounge where an assortment of nibbles is served.We had starters of breast of woodpigeon on a bed of lentils and a beetroot/goats cheese combination.These were followed by seabass and a fillet steak and then puddings.With wine the bill came to £100.My descriptions do not do the presentation justice but believe me it is excellent.These courses were interspersed with other amuse-bouche..white onion soup in a little mug and a homemade ice cream.The manageress of the restaurant and brasserie,who also has a degree in Meteorology,was excellent.The brasserie food was very good as were the breakfasts that are served there.The brasserie also had a very good NZ sauvignon blanc (Manuku?).Finally the Townhouse must be mentioned for it's mirrored interior and contemporary interior design...quite a pleasant surprise for visitors to Beaumaris.The only downside to our visit was the lack of any parking at the hotel...guests have to park on an area known as the Green for £3/day....I don't know if you can pay for more than one day at a time to avoid having to get up early to "feed the meter" so to speak.All in all a great place stay,will certainly return but would probably dine in the brasserie more often.

My partner and I have just spent a night at the inn in the 'lofthouse suite', the suite turned out to be a very tired larger than average room with a sofa and a chair. The bed had no douve just a rather grubby blanket. The cost of the room at £155 bed and breakfast represents the poorest value that I have encountered in any hotel or inn that I have stayed in anywhere in my life. With regard to the food in the brasserie dinner was average and breakfast was bordering poor to average, I will not return and would not recommend.

Room Tip: definitely dont book a suite!

My wife and I booked a mid week break at the Bulls Head having enjoyed our stay at the Townhouse last year. Again we were very impressed by both hotel and staff.
We paid £200 for 2 nights including breakfasts and an evening meal at the Brasserie. A little on the expensive side for us but well worth it.
Found the rooms a little smaller than at the Townhouse but still a good size, very clean, well decorated and with good selection of hot drinks made available.
Food was excellent. Breakfast had wide choice of cereals, fruit juices, pastries, teas and coffee. Cooked breakfasts were delicious (eggs were perfect). Meal at the Brasserie also spot on. I had mussels as a starter, my wife had black pudding and bacon. For main we both had fish. It was all very fresh and with lots of flavour. Service was very prompt by friendly staff. Too full by the time it came to desserts!
Bar and residents lounge both had roaring fires, good mix of locals and visitors, drinks not the cheapest but reasonably priced.
All in all an excellent stay. Thank you to everyone at the Bulls Head.

My wife and I where joined by her sister and husband for a wonderful meal in the Loft Restaurant , although pricy the food in and service was wonderful and well worth the price. A fine selection of wines was also available and the pre starter and pre desert tasters added to the whole experience. If in Beaumaris this is one not to miss

Ate at the Loft Restaurant with my partner. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It seems as if they're aiming for a fine dining experience with The Loft, and they pretty much hit the mark. I'd recommend going there before they get any deserved recognition and put the prices up.

Canapes, pre starter and pre dessert all came as a surprise to the menu which was exceptional. The dishes were executed perfectly and well thought out and put together. The service was great, with friendly staff.

Satyed here overnight in early March 2013. Booked a single room in their new Townhouse accommodation. It was quiet, comfortable, modern, well looked after - had fresh milk in thermos and posh biscuits! Ate in the brasserie that night food and service excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking is a bit of a squeeze though!
