We went to stay here as there was a wedding on there that we were attending.
I was delighted with the place. We had a lovely room and although I thought the B& B rate was high, the D, B&B rate was amazing for such a super restaurant.
The Pool, jacuzzi section, steam room, and sauna all with luxury changing facilities was brilliant.
We were very impressed with all the staff, the waitresses, two of whom were Hungarian and very friendly, were quite delightful.
Caernarfon castle was brilliant and this was only a short walk. There were also waterfront walks very close.

This Hotel is one of Caernarfon's finest, even if the rooms are a bit 'dated' The pool and Spa are 'Fab' and looked after by the brilliant Brian. Food here is really good, as is the atmosphere.Note, you guys need some new entertainment, some of it is really naff. We had my Husband's 50th here and the Buffet was top class. Management really care about the 'Guest' experience. One little moan, they don't employ enough 'locals', but the Staff are quite charming. Some staff have a bit of a problem with English, but saying that, they will still do their very best to help and always do it with a smile.

Room Tip: Have never slept here as we are local, be advised though, during busy periods staff rooms are given...

We stayed at the Celtic Royal for a dance weekend and chose to go for an extra night beforehand. This turned out to be a very good idea as we got the extra night dinner/bed/breakfast for £50 each and the standard of the evening meal was first class restaurant standard. The hotel is based on a central 18th century 'core' that has been gutted so that you can look up the staircase to roof level. This gives it a light airy feel. Off this core are modern wings including the dining room, ball room, bar and swimming pool on the ground floor, and bedrooms above. Our room and those of our friends were of a good size, warm, modern, pleasantly furnished and the ensuite was a reasonable size. Some including ours didn't have a bath which wasn't a problem to us because we wouldn't have used it anyway. Other people would have preferred a bath. I would agree with another reviewer that in comparison to dinner, breakfast was a bit disappointing in terms of the range of food offered and the quality. The evening meals during the weekend were from a more limited menu but still excellent quality.

All the staff we dealt with were Eastern European (only local Welsh voice I heard was a woman on reception as we left) but all were friendly and helpful.

The hotel had everything you could need in terms of facilities, and we had an excellent weekend. The dance floor (if that's of any interest to you) was not a genuine dance floor (i.e. sprung) but was of a good size and there was plenty of room for tables around the floor. Bar prices were steep but on a par with other hotels we have danced in.

Caernarfon is a lovely looking little town with a castle (obviously), and a new harbour development. However, it does look a bit 'tired' and there are not many decent shops in the town itself. However, there are plenty of places to go to from Caernarfon and the hotel has a full range of brochures to give you some ideas.

Overall we had an excellent weekend away with friends and the hotel contributed massively to our enjoyment.

Room Tip: If you prefer a bath ask as some rooms only have a shower.

Everything about this hotel is brilliant apart from the breakfast, continental element was plentiful and very good. The cooked offering served buffet style consisted of very over cooked eggs, sausage and bacon that were of a very poor quality and processed. Very surprising as everything else about the hotel sang quality.

Have a word with the chef.

This is an excellent hotel in a very good location. I have just stayed at this hotel as part of a coach tour holiday. I was given a very pleasant, large room that was warm and comfortable. The en suite bathroom was really roomy, had an up to date suite and a large heated towel rail. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were kept spotlessly clean. The dining area was well organized and I throughly enjoyed all the meals I had there. There was a good choice of dishes for each course. I found all the staff were very pleasant, hard working and very willing to help. This hotel represents excellent value for money.

Reception staff very efficient and helpful, we stayed here with our 3 children for one night whilst travelling back to the westcountry from Blackpool. Family room a great size, clean and comfortable, only down side bath was rather small so if you are tall take a shower ! We used the swimming pool, sauna and steam room, Very clean at the pool if however a little cold.
We booked for an evening meal, I do feel the foreign staff could do with a little insight to training.
We ordered our meals, the children were not having starters but there main course came out with our starters so we all ate separate and finished at different times. The restaurant was clean and looked newly refurbished but the strong colour blue on the walls was very over powering a warm cream would be more pleasent. Personally a over night stay fine but to stay longer, no thanks !

Room Tip: Take sunglasses when sitting in the restaurant the blue walls are over powering !
