“Standard bunkhouse”
Reviewed 21 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed in the bunk house recently and it was as functional as you'd expect! Good place to rest your head but no luxuries! Showers unfortunately leave quite a lot to be desired but cheap and easy!

We were sharing a room with some others people but everyone was friendly and got on and Ted (who runs it) was very friendly and had no issue with us arriving very late at night!

Stayed May 2014, travelled with friends

Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

I stayed here 30th June-1st July 2013 in order to climb Snowdon. The camping field is large with ample room and nicely kept with a lovely river running through the adjoining field and in view. There are beautiful mountains seen from all angles around the field and is peacefully quiet for a good sleep in the tent after a monstrous climb up snowdon. Snowdon was our aim when we stayed at this campsite and is only about ten minutes away from the pen y pass start point for the pyg track. The village of Llanberis is about two minutes away and has an ample choice of pubs to eat and relax. Highly recommend Petes eats for breakfast before your climb if that is your aim.
The toilets and showers are superb, extremely clean and clearly very new as you can see from the pictures.
The owner Ted was very helpful but left us to our own devices when needed. He was at hand on the phone when we needed him.
Highly recommend this campsite. It will be even better when the snowdon inn pubs refurbishment is complete.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to The Snowdon Inn, where you'll find camping and bunkhouse accommodation. We offer a laid-back, peaceful place to stay for those coming to enjoy the beautiful mountains and coastline in and around Snowdonia. Our accommodation consists of bunkhouses and camping fields. It is simple, clean, and comes with a warm welcome. CAMPING: We have two camping fields. These are grassland meadows which border the banks of the river Seiont (that flows from Llyn Padarn down to the sea at Caernarfon Castle).The fields have a panoramic view of the mountains - from the Carneddau range, round to Elidir and Llanberis pass, Snowdon itself, and round to Moel Elio.We try to keep the land pretty wild, and managed primarily for biodiversity, so the pitches are kept cut and grazed and are surrounded by uncut grassland which, at certain times, is full of flowers. If you're into wild swimming there is a large deep river pool, and there is some good wildlife to be seen. Early rising (pretty much dawn!!) is frequently rewarded by watching the otters fishing. We own fishing rights to our quarter-mile stretch of the river so you are welcome to bring your rods. Our space for camping is pretty much unlimited, so there is no need to book ahead, unless you are coming with a larger group.We have limited electric hook-ups (just two) for camper-vans, and you need to book these if required.The washroom facilities are simple but good quality. Two toilets and two showers in the same block about 100 metres from the campfields along the track. There is also an outdoor (but undercover) washing-up sink. BUNKHOUSES: There is a ten-bed bunkhouse, situated between the camp-fields and the main building, and an eight bed bunkhouse in the ground floor of the main building. Both are serviced by the toilet/shower block, and the eight bed bunkhouse also has its own wc and sink. Both are equipped with electric heaters. Both are simple sleeping rooms with bunkbeds. You are provided with fresh sheets and pillowcases (and pillow), but need to bring your own sleeping bag. There is currently no Public House operating, as the main building is undergoing an upgrade, but this will hopefully be operating once more. ... more   less
