“First Class hotel”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

The only gripe about the hotel was the parking, not organised.

Other than that Bulkeley offers a superb stay, excellent reception. No hassles. The restaurant looked very good, although I ate out at a pre arranged meal.

The room was a good size and the bathroom very well equipped.

Breakfast was superb, better than hotels at triple the cost.

Would definitely stay again and take my family.

Room Tip: Get there early for your parking spot.

On arrival at reception we were greeted by very friendly and welcoming staff. Our reservation was dealt with efficiently and as the hotel was fairly quiet our single rooms were upgraded and we got sea views without having to ask - a nice touch which was much appreciated.
The rooms were large and comfortable, albeit a little too hot for my liking. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom clean and well equipped. The hospitality tray was ample enough to provide several cups of tea and coffee. Yes, the floorboards creaked a bit, but it is an old building.
We didnt dine in either the Bistro or Restaurant, although both looked to have good menus. Breakfast was very good.
Overall a very good stay and would be happy to go back.

We first visited the Bulkeley in July - for a birthday tea - and we vowed to try and return to stay. We made it back for three nights in September. We were not disappointed. I would have reviewed the hotel sooner, were it not for Tripadvisor's rule of not being able to review an establishment again within 3 months.

It is a traditional hotel, with traditional good service. We are not complainers by nature (far from it) - however, we did have one problem with our room that we felt we just had to draw staff's attention to (better for them to know than not, we felt) .... staff/management went beyond the call of duty to sort things for us.

We enjoyed a lovely meal in the Bistro .... seek out the permanent resident gentleman, who sits across on the far side of the room reading his newspaper :-)

Anyway, great place to remember and recommend. Thank you.

I would love to write a good review of his iconic hotel but, sadly, this misses the mark on so many fronts. My room was at the front of the hotel. The sash window rattled, the huge heating pipe made the room like an oven even though the radiator was hot and the decor was a mish mash of floral patterns, anaglypta and acoustic tiles. There was even faux wooden panelling. The bathroom had a white toilet, pink basin, cream bath and grey tiled walls. The shower dribbled. Outside my room, on what could be an elegant landing, were two folding beds.

Some of the staff were well trained and friendly but no means all. On checking out I asked if a taxi could be ordered for me and was pointed to a telephone and list of different firms! Apparently they have so many guests who order a taxi and then don't use it that the hotel gets charged.

Perhaps this hotel sits on its laurels as 'the' historic hotel on Anglesey and doesn't see how far the hospitality business has moved on in other parts of the UK? When it catches up I'd like to try it again.

Booked in for a Saturday night as were dropping our son to Bangor Uni. We each had a double room and my husband had booked a sea view as a treat for us. We were greeted by friendly staff. There was ample information on offer of the area for our brief stay. Our room was of a good size and the sea view was beautiful. I am fussy when it comes to the comfort of my bed but I did not need to worry as was perfectly adequate. We had a brief incident of rusty bath water (it can happen in Wales when the road gets dug up), but the management were quick to address the issue and could not have been more helpful.The room was quiet through the night which was much needed after a 5.5 hour drive. In the morning we had breakfast, where we were seated at a table with a wonderful view of the Menai Straits.It was of a buffet style offering fruit juices, fruit, cereals, full English and toast. I have to say it was the best I have tasted in many years. I have to say the bacon was superb (evidently purchased from the local butcher) and the rest was of an excellent quality. The hotel is set in the most stunning location and even if a little old fashioned in decor, we will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms to the front are definitely recommended.......
