8/10 Very good

2 night stay to the end of our tour of West Wales
Although probably the best hotel and restaurant in Betws-y-Coed it is looking rather dated and in need of some further refurbishment eg the dripping hot tap in the bathroom and the carpet in the common areas. A 4 star hotel but not sure how it warranted this grading. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming, we ate here twice but service was very slow due to ‘chef’ staffing problems, but the food was good. A bit surprised that a glass of wine came out of a miniature rather than a full bottle. The meal is also not cheap, £36 for a main and a dessert!!

A very lovely stay
From start to finish fabulous. Easy and simple booking, friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed a 2 night stay b&b and added on a lovely meal on our first night. The food was tasty and outstanding. Surrounding grounds were beautiful & it’s perfect location to explore north wales. Also felt safe with all the Covid regulations in place.

Almost perfect
Great stay, great location, great staff, only comment is it felt sometimes with only 2 staff they were run ragged doing everything, reception, bar, restaurant all at the same time..this impacted on waiting times. But again cannot fault the staff we met all first class...

We arrived a little late in the evening but Mark at reception was ever so kind and helped us into our room. The chef quickly made us delicious meals. Over all the staff was amazing and very welcoming.
