Awful if I hadn't been staying on company expenses I would have demanded a refund! Avoid at all costs far better hotels in local area and they are far cheaper, with friendlier staff, cleaner rooms and more welcoming. Will be telling my company never to use this establishment again.

Well, I was rather looking forward to my stay in a lovely building in a picturesque setting... however, the staff at the hotel were an abomination! I'd love to give 0 out of 5... but alas I can not! Of particular concern was the food, I don't know how you can get breakfast wrong but these clowns managed to serve...

The staff were rude, our room was dirty and the food was terrible, so gratetful that we had taken some picnic food for. Over priced and disappointing, and thankful we were only there for the weekend, we couldn't wait to get home!

Very Disappointed, staff are extremely rude and and made me feel uncomfortable at times. The view was lovely but definitely wouldn't recommend. Such a shame really as the rooms were lovely and so was the location but the staff let it down.

Stayed for business, never again room damp and staff awful. Management and staff alike couldn't care less when I told them about the issue and just said don't stay then. Of course they wouldn't offer me a refund though!

.For the price, I was expecting to have a lovely comfortable break, never have I been so disappointed. It was like stepping back in time 40 years, which is probably the age of the plumbing. Food was almost edible, if you were starving. I endured one sleepless night in this hole before cutting the stay short and going home early.

My mother booked me in here so that we could visit my son at Uni in Swansea. Im afraid to say that nothing could have been more unsatisfactory about our stay. Rude and petulant staff greeted us and were unhelpful when asking the most basic of tasks, for example assistance with bags (mother has arthritis) was met with a hufff...

Arrived with my girlfriend. We were really looking forward to spending a few nights in lovely Betws-y-Coed but our room was cold and dirty. The bathroom had a damp, musty smell with peeling paint and mold staining the wall by the shower. When we asked to have a different room the staff said they'd go and ask but didn't come...

A dirty hotel with rude staff. Cutlery, carpets, bedding etc all in need of a good scrub and dated. I wouldn't return. It's a shame as it's in a lovely area. Better places to stay locally in a lovely village. Food is also not great.

Rude staff, arrogant managers, but was willing to give this hotel a go following reading good reviews. Upon arrival, staff were complacent due to good location. When I got to my room the room had been made tidy, however there were signs this room had been used before me and not cleaned. The wait time for a meal was over...
