“lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2013

We stopped at the great western waterloo hotel on Dec 12, for 2 nights.
I would just like to say what a lovely friendly hotel it was, & would certainly want to go back, they upgraded as to one the better rooms which was very nice, the spa facilites were good, which was lovely after a long walk.
It was local to all bars & restaurant, with great views. staff were very helpful.

Only stayed one night at short notice, Very clean and tidy, excellent restaurant was fully booked, a little expensive, which is probably why we managed to get in. A brief stroll into town into various facilities, Very pretty, bustling with tourists. Beautiful surroundings, river and falls. We conquered snowdon the next day after a great nights sleep. Would return.

Visited on the 18th Jan and stayed the night prior to a friends wedding. The hotel is very clean with extremely helpful staff, allowing us to extend our stay a couple of hours whilst we got ready for the wedding. Thank you and good luck with the refurb we'll hopefully be back.

You won't go far wrong staying here.
Comfy rooms, good breakfast, and good value for money.
The hotel also has the added bonus of a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi ideal for recuperation and recharging the batteries after a day in the mountains.
Only word of warning would be that this hotel caters for coach trips so breakfast can be a bit fraught as the participants all decend on the breakfast room at the same time in a hurry to fuel up and ship out.

Arrived Dec 30th ,raining commenced shortly after arrival.We enjoyed a nice meal at lunchtime and another meal in the evening which was also very good. There was some work in progress in the entrance to the hotel,which was not a problem. The room were warm and roomy and quiet
although a little tired. We were there for a festive New Year break, very were satisfied with the friendly waiters etc and entertainment. The food was excellent +++++ never had better!

Room Tip: There are some chalets at the rear of the hotel which other guests said were very good.

Hotel had recently been improved and was looking very modern, festive and well organised. Food was good and large servings but the bed was extremely uncomfortable and gave us a bad night's sleep. Staff added a further duvet to pad out the mattress, but it didn't really make much difference. Constant hot water for baths and room was big. More tea, sugar and bath products would have been welcome but on request were immediately provided. Bath towels were tiny and not fit for purpose. Price not bad. Gala dinner pretty good but cabaret a bit pathetic and many ran off to the bar when it started!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are dark with no view. Better at the front.

We went for a two day bed and breakfast break. It was fantastic, everybody was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was self service all you could eat. Room was quiet and warm. It did back onto the railway line but this was of little bother they only ran very rarely and not at all during the night. Spa was excellent, All round value for money. Well worth a return trip.
