Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was delighted to get the chance to stay in such a beautiful and romantic building, and in a great location too. And yet it was only £15 a night more than a recent stay I had in a very boring chain hotel. It is a very different kind of hotel. It was every thing I imagined and more. The main public rooms are stunning in their decoration - huge ornate windows, gothic style fire places, elegant but comfortable furniture, chandeliers, and lots of interesting features. It makes you feel like a child - being able to wander about the place - which is like a maze - and I took lots of photos and videos because I was so fascinated. The 'more' is that there were little nooks and crannies I didn't expect - such as turret snug, the wine cave, some very mysterious and enchantingly docorated corridors and staircases, as well as the huge wooden panelled banquetting hall - which is used for weddings. My partner and I had a room in the Lodge rather than in the castle itself - but as I said, this was very good value. We had a large picture window giving us a view of the Menai Strait and if the weather hadn't been so bad - the mountains of Snowdonia beyond. The room was very comfortable, and we didn't mind that our shower/toilet room was not en-suite because it was only a few steps across a landing from our room, and we were provided with bath robes. Why haven't I given it 5 stars? Well, it is purely because of a few aspects to the hotel that could easily be changed/improved. The lighting in our room was poor. There was a low lit lamp on one side of the bed, but it was not a lamp you could read a book by. Surely, it would be easy to place two cheaper reading lamps either side of the bed? Our room was on the small side, but I do think that perhaps a second chair could have been squeezed in so that both os us could sit by the window and admire the view. On arrival, we were asked if we wanted to book a table in the restaurant, but we were undecided. On our explore of the hotel, we popped our heads around the door of Le Dragon Rouge and checked out the menu. It looked nice and the price was not outrageous, but the room itself was so plain and grey, with no pictures on the wall or anything to make you want to eat in there. In a building filled with fantastic decor and detail, it was shocking to see how plain and dull the dining room was. It gave us absolutely no inspiration at all so we went out for dinner somewhere else. It would be so easy to make this room better. Perhaps some pictures/photos of the house in it's past? History of the house and the area? I also felt that the main rooms lacked atmosphere in the evenings because inspite of all the stunning fireplaces, there wasn't a fire in any of them. The weather was mild, but a single fire in one of them would have added something. We were not tempted to hang around and spend money in the bar, and it didn't feel as if any of the other guests were too. As this small hotel is chosen by many for the look of the place, it is a real shame that we felt so unwelcome in the public rooms at night time. I imagine that with a different vibe, all the guests would be drinking at the bar and chatting and feeling like we were sharing this place together and it could have been amazing. Instead, we walked out to a local pub and had that vibe somewhere else. I still give this place 4 stars though, because it was very good.

Absolutely superb from from parking car on arrival until driving away. expectations massively surpassed. Very professional, warm welcome from Carrie who escorted us to our spotless warm and cosy room and said we had freedom to rome and discover. They had evidently researched who we were and provided a dedicated welcome gift in our room. We had the £35.00 per person 3 course "table de Hote" dinner in the renowned Le Dragon Rouge restaurant hosted and attended by "Maitre de" Rhiannon and because they were unable to satisfy a request we had made, a kind and generous offer was made and accepted. We were so satisfied that we immediately booked dinner for the next night After diner, we discovered the "wine cave" and eventually retired to our warm and cosy room. Instant and controllable hot water in the bathroom with delightful shower (their tamed dragon had obviously been well fed). Breakfast was leisurely with continental and or cooked full welsh attended again by Rhiannon. Our stay was concluded and we had to leave. however, we shall return and bring friends! Well done team Rhianfa.

What a wonderful place yes it’s rustic but it’s a chateau! the maze of corridors and floors can initially seem daunting but you soon get the run of the place but that is the beautiful charm of the place, grounds and views out over the Menai to Bangor and Snowdon are stunning even in February, room was a lovely on suite with a roll top bath and glorious views through and large window. We had the set three course meal £35 ahead (spent more eating in a local restaurant) which was fantastic and a great choice for breakfast. The staff were all fantastic and couldn’t do enough for us from the house staff, waiting staff or reception staff. There is two bars “once you find them lol”and several sitting rooms set about. The Drinks are what you expect to pay in a hotel so no shock there “we did bring a couple of bottles of red wine with us for the room” Will return again, Thank you all for our stay

This hotel is a warren of passageways and stairs and overall rather dreary and ill lit. At dinner each table had a small oil lamp… but none had oil, so remained unlit throughout the evening. The spacious lounges were dimly-lit but not romantically so… there was no accent lighting, the fires weren’t lit and it all felt very gloomy. Dinner was excellent… the chef is to be commended. Sadly, there is a dearth of trained waiting staff (one young woman) and she was obviously under pressure and trying her best under the circumstances. Breakfast was another matter entirely: I wrote this email to the hotel and received an acknowledgment from the receptionist to say she had forwarded it to management. To date I have had no response from the manager, Paul. “Hello Paul, Yesterday, I wanted to discuss with you an incident which happened at breakfast prior to our departure. However, my companion, who is a very mild mannered gentleman wasn't keen to confront the young waitress. We came down to the breakfast room just before 09.30 to find no yoghurt and no fruit available. Both dishes were empty and hadn't been replenished. I requested yoghurt and berries (which appear on the menu) and eventually they were provided. I had to ask three times for the berries. My friend had ordered porridge, which, as it does not appear on the menu he ascertained the previous day that it could be provided upon request. He was served porridge and his cooked breakfast together... on the same plate! My own cooked breakfast was served at the same time as I began to eat my yogurt and berries. We were flabbergasted and I reached for my phone and attach the photo. The waitress stomped off saying "How rude!" and slammed the door. I appreciate that there is a staffing shortage and an obvious lack of training. However, this in no way excuses what happened. As we checked out, I asked him if there was anything he wanted to say to the lovely receptionist... but he isn't one to be confrontation and instead, he merely thanked her. Incidents of this sort can severely damage reputations.” Perhaps this review will go some way to improving matters.

Surpassed our expectations! Beyond beautiful grounds, stunning romantic cheatau, wonderful view and amazing staff. It was my birthday weekend and I wish I could not have chosen a better place to spend it. We were in double room overlooking the garden. Bathroom was luxurious with a 2 separate showers and a standing middle one. The entire room had a romantic undertone with large window letting in enough light. We will definitely come back again and next time we'd book one of the suites. Huge thanks to lovely staff for making this place even more amazing!

What a gorgeous lovely venue! I don't know where to start, food - amazing, bar prices very reasonable - STAFF - wow wow wow. The friendliest from Erica on Reception to Delyth the Sales and Events Manager and everyone in between, lovely staff that made you feel like you were family and not a hotel guest. I did not want to leave and will be back very soon for another visit. Thank you for having me and for my gorgeous room and stay. Cannot wait for my next stay.

We enjoyed a great stay at a really impressive venue. Reception was very friendly and efficient and our room was comfortable and well equipped. The highlight was the shower, or rather, the 3 showers in the turret! Brilliant! The weather deteriorated while we were there, so it was a real advantage to spend an hour in comfort in one of the luxurious sitting rooms with a wonderful view while we enjoyed a hot chocolate. Dinner was high quality, but unfortunately we were the only diners on a quiet Monday evening. The lamb was particularly good - pink, tasty and tender. There was a limited number of wines available by the glass, and the wine was a little on the expensive side. Breakfast was also mostly of a high standard with a wide selection, although the sausages were poor quality. Service was very good throughout. I would be delighted to go back.

Had a lovely couple of days at this amazing and intriguing hotel. Room was very comfortable and the showers in the bathroom are very interesting. The staff are amazing and courteous and recommended some lovely places to visit. Which again did not disappoint. Ate in the restaurant on the first night and the food first class. Amazing views over the Menai Straits Hope to go back soon Many thanks

Stayed at this beautiful hotel last weekend (end of Jan) and I have to say, we were totally blown away by the hotels character and style. What an entrance to the hotel. Absolutely breathtaking seating rooms overlooking the Menai Straits. Spectacular views from the windows. The rooms are adorned with the most beautiful pieces of furniture, art and the piano room is just exquisite. We stayed in the Dukes Suite and honestly didn't want to leave the room at all. Gorgeous bath under the window, 4 poster bed, incredible double shower room. Honestly, I have never stayed anywhere like it. A few people to thank: Ollie (reception) - what a lovely welcome and introduction to the hotel. You seem to help out in any role where required (bar/dining room etc) and want to thank you for looking after us. Isobel - thank you for your lovely hospitality at breakfast. Annest- amazing service for our evening meal. And that cocktail was perfect! Zoe - thanks for prepping the afternoon tea for us. Wow! It was amazing. Erica - thank you also for your hospitality and for managing our bags before departure. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We truly felt spoilt by you all. Finally, Rhiannon, thanks for looking after us too. We enjoyed the little tour of the hotel upon arrival, thank you. It honestly is such a beautiful place to stay, with incredible staff in every department. We will definitely be returning.

A beautiful hotel with lovely staff and great food. We had a two night stay and despite the weather we enjoyed every minute. We arrived just in time for Sunday lunch which was delicious and then spent the rest of the day in the hotel as storm isha was doing its worst outside. A break in the weather meant a day out in Caernarfon on Monday and a meal at the Liverpool arms in Beaumaris for dinner.
