I stayed 2 nights at the Garden hotel. The strong points of the hotel are firstly the service which is excellent. All the staff I encountered were friendly, courteous, accommodating and willing to go out of their way to help. Everyone seemed to know my name and they were willing to change rooms to give me a different room. The location is also good, very close to the station and to to the high street, and also not too far from the university.
The room I had was however pretty basic. Everything worked but at quite a basic level (eg trickling shower, very dated decor) and I think at £80 per night was significantly overpriced. A colleague who was also staying there said her room was well presented so there may be variability in the quality of the rooms, or it could be my standards compared to hers !
My sense is that Bangor does not have many good options for accommodation so this is probably worth considering but more perhaps because the competition is less than fierce.
The same staff seem to also run the adjacent Chinese restaurant which is very convenient and nice, although also slightly overpriced.
