Reviewed 16 February 2013



Stayed at the Royal Celtic on one of their Valentines offers. Entry through the original revolving doors into a big reception are with an impressive stair case ahead ( there is a disabled entry and a lift). Relaxing settees in areas off reception and a library. Bar and bistro to the left and dining rooms to the right. Straight forward for the 15m pool and spar with jacuzzi , steam and sauna which is free, with the small gym, to guests.
Had asked for a family room with bath and a sea view. And we got it right at the front of the hotel second floor with a view to Anglesey. Thermostatic radiator, flat screen with text and the usual tea and biscuits. NOTE if you like a mug take your own, they supply Tetley tea bags but only four + four milk. 
Room well furnished and recently refurbished, big bath, powerful shower, plenty hanging space in the anteroom wardrobe. Beds proved comfy and not too firm.
I had one or two small requests of the reception staff, a mug, extra tea bags and milk,supplied with a smile and a courteous 'is there anything else sir?' In fact there was ...the deal included the valentines meal and a bottle of Champagne in the room. Instead of that may we have a bottle of house red with the meal please? Certainly sir and that's what we got .
Breakfast was buffet style with a good cold choice including meats and cheese and a range of cereals. Hot buffet was standard fare and if the hotel had been busier it would have been hotter and replenished more often. Still enjoyed though. 
The a la carte menu was outstanding for a three star (AA) hotel. Not a big menu with 5 starters, mains and deserts ...possibly because they were not too busy and you can't afford to possibly waste food.
Among the starters we had Parma ham with goats cheese, and salad : smoked salmon with pumpkin pickle : mains were lamb rump done to a turn pink inside with a caramelised base : sea bass etc etc... Every course a treat and an excellent reflection on the chef. One criticism is that the welsh cheese desert was two pieces of the same pepper cheese and one of a mustard seed variety. As I pointed out to chef with the variety of good welsh cheese it was disappointing. To be fair he agreed. Valentines meal again wonderful, rose for the lady and all tables were for two. 
I've said enough. Excellent hotel, wonderful staff, cracking food and a spar to work it off in. If in doubt go and find out for your self.. As for room number well 215 did for us.

We stayed at the Celtic Royal hotel from 1st February for 2 nights. Bargain price of £89.00 per night D,B & B. The food was very agreeable and the service excellent. Rooms were very clean, if a little noisy on the second night. The swimming pool is a great extra. We would totally recommend this hotel for a great weekend in North Wales with lots to see and do in the surrounding area.

We stayed at the Celtic Royal following a party the hotel. We got a bargain price for a double room (including breakfast) at £55! The room had a double and a single bed, tea & coffee facilities and a lovely clean shower room.

I couldn't fault the service, facilities or room. The only reason I have not given it full points is that there was only one pillow per person, the lighting in the room was poor and the decor colour combination or yellow wall and red carpet was "interesting".

Over all, this hotel offered great value for money.

We decided on a last minute to do a 2 nights break in a leisure spa hotel, and chose the Celtic Royal. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised with the large well maintained family size room.
The 1st evening with had a fabulous 3 course evening meal from a very good selection off the menu. The waitress (Judit I think her name was) served the meal very efficiently, quick and was really pleasant, considering she was serving all the other guests in the restaurant on her own. The following day we used the spa facilities, nice pool, jaccuzi, steam and sauna, with complimentary towels. Brilliant. We would have no hesitation on staying in this hotel again

Excellent weekend upgraded to the bridal suite for that extra special touch for Kelly's birthday present. Couldn't av asked for better service. Food was excellent. Well worth every penny. Service was impeccable, staff couldn't do enough for us.

On arrival, first impression of outside of hotel, was that it appeared a little tired and the area not good, but on entering, my opinion changed, The public areas are very clean, expensive looking and the carpets looked new. The Staff were friendly and efficent, the room was large spotless and well kept. We eat at lunchtime and Dinner then breakfast the following morning and I could not fault the food or the service. In spite of the fact that we arrived at breafast at the same time as a coach party, there were plenty of staff on hand to ensure tea and toast arrived quickly and hot.
I may well be back at christmas as they have some great deals.

I stayed on business and paid £54B&B.

Check in was smooth and speedy.

The communal areas of the hotel appear freshly decorated and newly carpeted throughout.

The room was very large indeed with a double and single bed.

Flat screen TV, tea and coffee facilities.

Bathroom quite clinical with linoleum flooring but clean, and apart from the shower head, all looks quite new.

Unfortunately I didn't use the pool or gym facilities but the pictures looked good.

Food in the bar (evening meal) was ok. Breakfast was good but not great.

For a business stay this was perfect. I'd probably take my wife elsewhere, but I'm sure she'd more than manage here.

Great value for money.
