The Anglesey Arms Hotel
Ranked #8 of 8 Hotels in Caernarfon
Reviewed 12 August 2012

I didn't stay here but did stop off for a meal as the location was great - tables outside looking over the Menai Straits and being very handy for the castle.

However I had to warn others about the extremely poor standard of food & drink service. I tried several of the Marston beers (bitter/ales) but they were all very run of the mill quality and not kept up to the general levels of most pubs these days. It took a long time to get served at the bar also.
Our bar food also took about 45min to arrive, which just isn't acceptable with a young child. I had to ask about it several times, and I got the impression of the whole operation being chaotic, despite the pub not being full. When the food did arrive it was cold and of poor quality.

Situated in a nice spot next to the castle and looking out across the Menai Strait that is about the best I can say. Locals seem to conduct conversations loudly in welsh save for the very English profanaties sprinkled liberally.

Food isn't the best and this is a B and B without breakfast. None of the rooms are en suite and it's a dash to the loo/small shower.

Unless you like pounding dance music playing to 2am on a Friday or Saturday night followed by fights outside your window till about 3.30am don't think about getting away for a quiet weekend.

Finally watch out for the predatory traffic wardens who swoop in Castle Square where the restriction signs face OUT of the area.
