Reviewed 13 April 2010

My husband and I stayed in the Menai Bank Hotel on Friday night 9th April 2010. We had only intended staying for one night but because we enjoyed the first night so much we ended up staying the second one also. Rachel & Paddy are such a lovely couple, they give you such individual attention, they actually make you feel like part of the family. There was an international harp festival on while we were there and they had some participants staying in their hotel. Their daughter Rebecca was also very friendly and played some tunes on her harp for us. However, apart from all that, I have to say, the breakfast was the best yet we have received on our travels --- and boy does Rachel know how to present the "perfect poached egg" Looking forward to staying there again.

Caernarfon is lovely and full of hidden gems, not to even mention the castle. The hotel is a little on the run down side but still we had a perfect view, a giant, super comfy bed and a great breakfast. There is also free parking at the back and shops just across the road.

Every Winter we revamp any rooms or areas that get run down after the season. So by the Spring everything will be ship shape again! I've already been given "the list" :-)
Glad you enjoyed your stay and found the hotel comfortable..
I agree the location is perfect for those superb sunsets. Each one is better than the last. Although I live here I try not to miss any of them:-)

Pat & Rachel, welcome guests as if, like their own had returned from some far away place. A great house filled with warm furnishings, books, cushions, a piano, and an abundance of conversation and laughter. ( Also a well supplied little bar.)
My bedroom was en-suite, and I slept soundly.
The breakfast room is richly laid out with well set tables. Help yourself to all the varieties of cereal, fruit juice, tea, coffee, toast, while Pat serves the full and substantial home cooked breakfast.
Located 5mins walk from centre of Caernarfon, and 25min drive to Hollyhead ferry.

we stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. Patrick was a very friendly & helpful host. Great breakfast, nice lounge room & bar. Plus made welcome to bring fish & chips back & eat in the pool room. Don't stay here if you are worried about the latest decor in your room - but do if you want a helpful host a great breakfast & good value.

Found this B&B through Tourist Information Centre, booked in for one night stayed for three. Excellent value for two, £60 per night ,clean, comfortable and very good size beds in rooms. Good value breakfast and friendly service. Off road parking, 5 minutes walk to centre. Would recommend this Hotel to anyone, families, couples and single people alike due to the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed at Menai Bank, because I had fractured my ankle the previous day, and we needed a room on the ground floor. I had to hop up a few steps, but it was well worth it! We were very well looked after, and the owner was really friendly and helpful. He served breakfast in the room for example, because it was difficult for me to go to the dining room.
The room was lovely and spacious, with sea views!
We would definitely come and stay here again!! Thank you very much for looking after us!
