Premier Inn Caernarfon Hotel

Reviewed 14 October 2012

On arrival you pull up in your car in what seems to be a drop off bay which is posted "No Unloading " looking around you see a couple of disabled bays .No good if your not disabled .
Now if your traveling as a couple you can hurry and unload the car quick and then one stands in the reception while the other goes park the car in the free carpark topside of the premier inn . Then walk back and both then check inn . Can you imagine this if its pouring down with rain ? Not very good is it ? Even worse should it be you were a solo traveller .Premier inn could/should have a drop off bay and a discounted carparking for the payment on the opposite from the premier inn building pay carpark. The free carpark was ok and has a camera in it but do not leave anything in your car of value put anything even a coat in the boot out of site and you should be ok for the night . I went back out later at night once the carpark was almost empty and parked close to the entrance as others did . That way it looks like your car is overlooked from the nearby holiday homes .
Should it be raining , which it was ,again going for a meal in the Table Table could have done with some sort of canopy cover which they have built into the Harbour side of Table Table but not between the Premier hotel and the Table Table , so your all nicely dressed up for dinner only to arrive looking like you have fell into the harbour . Again not good and it could be sorted should Premier put their minds to do it . As for the staff of Premier Inn and Table Table ,we found no fault with them and they did their upmost to make our stay a good one .
The location is good and easy to get to and you have Morrisons very near should you wish to stock up or fuel up and an Asda nearby as well .
Should they sort the above out then I would give it a better rating .

We've just come back from this hotel after a 5 night break. It's a great hotel right on the harbour, overlooking the Menai Straits and Anglesey. It's a perfect location to visit most of North Wales and within a few minutes you're out into the beautiful Snowdonia countryside. The room was spotless and we heard no noise overnight even though our window was open. The staff were all very friendly, especially Gary, Val and Dewi. For breakfast we went to a giftshop across the walkway where they do bacon baps and tea/coffee for £3.50 (other breakfasts are available!) Would certainly go back to this Premier Inn again.

We booked this Hotel not only for its price but its location as we'd visited Snowdon. Great budget Hotel , with friendly staff. The Table Table restaurant next door is great value and good pub food. No on site car park though but there is a free one just up the street.

We enjoyed our stay at this Premier Inn. The rooms were spotless, lovely bedlinen and towels, staff very friendly. The location is very handy and very pleasant and we enjoyed visited Caernarfon. The only down side is the restaurant which, although not terrible, was not brilliant and if we were to visit again, I think we would choose to eat elsewhere.

The Premier Inn at Caernarfon was great value for money and in the perfect location. We received a very warm welcome, much more so than the previous night we'd stayed in an independent hotel, and had a very comfortable room. The hotel was extremely quiet and our room was spotlessly clean. Our bathroom had a damp smell which we mentioned on leaving and were assured this would be investigated. Staff were very knowledgable when we needed directions. We had pre booked the continental breakfast which was to a very good standard and had plenty of choice. Again this was far better than our breakfast at the previous hotel. The only problem i had was getting in and out of the shower as there were no grab rails and i have limited mobility. However I hadn't checked beforehand if there were more accessible rooms available so only have myself to blame! We would highly recommend this hotel if you want a bit of peace and quiet by the sea.

This PI is ok, my only complaint would be that the bathroom could have been cleaned at least once in the three nights we stayed. When booking please keep in mind that there is no car parking on site only Blue Badge spots we parked in Victoria Dock Free Car Park about 200 yards up the road. Not many Restaurants near by, The Black Boy Inn just past the Arch in city wall 5/10 min walk was the best we found.

Hotel up to usual PI mid range standard, hotel staff very helpful and friendly, sorted out all our taxi needs.
