Premier Inn Caernarfon Hotel
Ranked #3 of 8 Hotels in Caernarfon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2012

When we checked inn we were allocated a room. The room allocated had not been serviced. Allocated another room and it was fine. Location is one of the best I have seen for a premier inn. Meals were also ok - usual Premier inn standard. The main problem was a fire evacuation at around 4.00 am. This was because of a faulty fire alarm. The night attendant had to help man handle a wheel chair user down the stairs which prevented from fully dealing with evacuation procedures.there were also no telephones in the bedrooms which meant that reception could not be contacted. I think premier inns need 2 night staff on duty, Phoebe a in all rooms linked to reception and a policy of all wheel chair users bring on the ground floor.

a clean and modern premier inn. The only issues we had was our room smelt of damp due to a smelly shower curtain. We complained and it was sorted promptly. As for the restaurant it was excellent for breakfast and dinner not bad. Only thing is with the service in table table. It's slow and if you don't get to breakfast early, forget it as you are looking at an hours wait

New premier inn with larger than average room size. Close to centre of town with free car parking and supermarket close by. Ideal base for exploring Snowdonia. We booked in advance and paid £39 per night. Bed was very comfy, although we could have slept anywhere being shattered from climbing snowdon

just wanted a short break away and got a £29 deal for the one night. As this was just a base all we needed was a clean warm room - which is exactly what we got. The Receptionist was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and bright (with a bit of a sea view!) and importantly lots of hot water for the shower.

We had dinner in the Table Table restaurant next door which was good value for money although the service was a bit slow due to being so busy. Opted for a Morrisons breakfast which is just over the road to the hotel - you can't go wrong with a sausage sandwich for £1.20!

Overall for a cheap and cheerful break away you can't complain and we will definitly be going back.

Got a great deal to stop at this Hotel which is fairly new and right on the Harbour overlooking the Menai Straits to Anglesey and it only cost us £19 for the Accommodation, and £22 each for Dinner (incl Wine) + Breakfast at the Harbour Restaurant next door. There is no Car Parking ( unless you have a Blue Badge) but 100metres away you can park for free on Victoria Dock !
Caernarfon Castle is just 10 minutes walk away, and the Town and Walls of this ancient Norman-English Fortress and its History since 1090 will keep history buffs thoroughly engaged as well as the Kids!
There are lots of interesting shops to hit too...including Celtica opposite the HOTEL

Room Tip: Book the Meal Deal at Table Table when you book the Inn, and all Rooms are good

To learn the staff knew the heating was not good and allowed an elderly person to stay in that room is unacceptable. Not happy and the good night guarantee was denied advising it could not be done.......……
