Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stayed in room 4 for one night as a family of four. The rooms were clean and cosy with tea and coffee facilities, trouser press, iron and board and hair dryer. If you are expecting sleek and high tech this is not for you. However, I immediately felt at home here - the view of the Menai Strait is spectacular and the quirky surroundings make you feel like you are at the helm of a ship. There is a lock which the boats can be watched going through to the left out of the window. The staff were friendly and down to earth and the breakfast in the conservatory was lovely with lots of choice. I did not want to leave and will hopefully go back again.

What can I say but absolutely fabulous.... The Staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. We were put in an apartment on deck 1 (The ground floor) it had stunning views of the sea to the front and the river with yachts moored to the side. The room was huge with a massive for poster bed. Breakfast was a choice of full English or continental and was delicious with a great variety. It was served by a lovely lady who was chatty and very helpful. I will definitely be going back here again. Would I recommend it YES YES YES most certainly

Room Tip: We had the apartment on deck 1 but looking at their brochure all rooms look nice

I only had the chance to spend one night in this hotel as I was on a work trip, but it couldn't have been nicer. I was upgraded to the rooms in the separate building overlooking the harbour and it was one of the nicest views I've ever had from a hotel window. The room was clean, huge and had more than I needed for my one night stay - both of the rooms in this block would be ideal for a family. The food in the hotel was excellent - very filling (as most Welsh food tends to be!) and the service was excellent. Definitely recommend it for a Welsh coastal holiday.

We stayed here for 2 nights in early August . Our room had superb views over the Meni Straits. The hotel staff were lovely and the children thought the pool was great. We had more than enough space for the four of us in our 2 bedroomed apartment which also had 2 additional beds in the at the far end - the children chose those as that was where the huge picture windows were! Which then meant we we had a spare empty twin room! My only comment would be that for the price it would be good if breakfast was included even if it was the continental rather than a full English . Our room had a lovely table with seating for 6 and a microwave and sink and fridge which made making lunch a cheaper option for day trips out.

The Hotel Plas Dinorwic is ideally situated for both Anglesey expeditions and trips to Snowdonia. A drive to Holyhead takes about forty minutes and the journey to the Snowdon Ranger car park is less! Additionally its wonderful location right next to the Menai gives amazing views of the straights especially if you have one of the appropriate rooms. There is a lot to like but if you're expecting the uniformity, and dare I say, quality, of a 'chain' hotel prepare to be disappointed. This is a characterful family run establishment with all the pros and cons which that entails. In brief, the advantage is that all the staff are friendly and approachable and responsive to any requests which you might raise. The disadvantage is a certain familiarity or way of doing things which some guests may find uncomfortable.

I'm going to preface my comments by saying that overall our stay was pretty good and none of the points I'm going to raise seriously detracted from the experience. However they should be mentioned if only to give potential guests some idea of what to expect, after all that is what Tripadvisor is for, right ?

No toilet paper in our bathroom. Yes we arrived about 1:30, half an hour before the official 2pm check in time, so understandable. This was raised with the staff and was rapidly fixed.

Breakfast not included in the price and you have to notify the staff the night before that a) you want it b) what sort you want and that c) what time you are going to turn up between 8am-10:30am. It appears that basically the conservatory which is used as the breakfast room isn't large enough to accommodate all the guests at one sitting, which is fair enough, hence the prior warning. Note that 'continental' or cooked breakfast both cost the same so if you are a light morning eater you may not be getting the same value as your cholesterol loving buddies.

Dinner, if you want it, also requires fair notice. I didn't try this so can't comment further.

Room: I noticed the following:
The double bed I slept in had a very peculiar feature; I could feel the tops of the springs in the mattress as I laid on it. Didn't detract from sleep as such, just a bit weird. The other beds in the suite had more accommodating mattresses.

No phone ... guests are supposed to use their mobiles or walk to reception if they want something!

Fire escape instructions: these were positioned at the bottom of the suite door upside-down .. as it happens I am quite adept at reading inverse text and could see that the assembly point was ‘car-park’, bizarre though, n’est ce pas?

Bathroom: a few cracked tiles (mostly higher up the wall so not a biggy) However, the air extractor vent blades had gunk on.

Living area: LED spot lamps were being used (sound eco-credentials) but there was obviously an issue with the driver on one set of lights as they started to flash on and off after a minute or so of being activated. We kept them switched off so as not to attract party-crashers.

Finally ... I am not sure when friendliness becomes familiarity, but as they say familiarity breeds contempt. My issue here is that the matriarchal family granny decided to 'stick the boot in' after we returned from a walk up and down Snowdon. She believed that I was not supporting my companion enough and launched into a castigation drama. This was further repeated on a second encounter. An appropriate way to treat paying guests? You decide!
