“Superb find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

Just stayed here and enjoyed one of their winter breaks. Absolutely first class food and customer service and very inexpensive too. Friendly and flexible, with a nice hot bath to sooth my aching legs after walking the hills. Slightly vintage decor gives it a certain charm but I could not fault the package. They deserve to be busier...

Back in September 2013 I booked a Christmas Break at this hotel, for my wife and I, arriving on the 24th December and departing on the 27th,
Two weeks before we were due to go they emailed and said they had double booked and would we mind going to another guest house in the village. We did not want this. We cancelled and received our deposit back.
We received no other explanation nor apology. My wife wrote to the manager explaining that the service we were receiving was very below par and as they had informed us so late of the double booking we were unable to find somewhere else to spend the Christmas period. My wife went on to say that The Royal Goat Hotel had in effect ruined our Christmas.
I am not surprised to have to report that we have not had a reply to this letter.

Stayed at Royal Goat Hotel for Christmas 2013 on a Bakers Dolphin festive break. The hotel was superb. Good home cooked meals which were delicious and well presented. Extensive breakfast menu that really sets you up for the day. The staff are delightful and helpful. Nice comfortable bedroom. It really was the perfect setting for Christmas. Thank you Royal Goat Hotel and Bakers Dolphin.

Just spent 2 nights here on a walking break, highly recommend this hotel as a base for Snowdon. The staff were all friendly, helpful and polite, the hearty breakfasts set you up for the day and the evening meals, were delicious. Yes the hotel is dated, creaking floorboards and the odd cobwebb, but this all adds to the ambience. Definitely coming back again next year.

The food was bad,the linen was dirty. I was there for 7 days and they didn't changed towels,it wasn't a problem because I saw a housekeeper when was polishing the toilet with a pillow case..I am sure that they do the same with towels.

This was quite a find. We decided to extend our Welsh trip by one day, in the Snowdonia area, and found the Royal Goat in Beddgelert by chance. It’s a large building, so it was hard to miss. We were offered the only remaining room, and we checked in.

The room we were given, for the price of a standard room, was enormous. Let the photos speak for themselves. The bathroom itself was the size of most hotel rooms, there was a balcony, in fact it was a suite. I believe it’s the only suite they have. Not sure. My point is, I can’t really comment on what the standard rooms are like, but from a general sense of the place, and seeing what we had, I can’t imagine you would have any problems staying there. It’s a classy hotel.

Good breakfast, too.

Room Tip: Try for the suite.

Our 34-strong rambling group has just spent three very enjoyable nights at the Royal Goat. Beddgelert provides an excellent base for walking without using the car, and the Caernarfon steam train stops at the station if you are looking for an enjoyable alternative to a walk. The hotel provides very good value for money, with friendly staff and decent food - cooked breakfasts are excellent.
