“Just talking about Sunday lunch”
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Didn't stay at the hotel. However, found the professional dining facilities supplemented by excellent service and quality food over Sunday lunchtime a memorable experience. There was hardly anywhere else we could find in Town that offered a wide range of food in clean and friendly surroundings. From Soup & Sandwiches to a 3 course Sunday dinner menu, We ate of the set menu, 2 courses for £12.50. The meat was locally sourced and my beef from the Rhug estate was excellent. Would suit customers who would find queuing at a carvery difficult and like good old fashioned table service,

The Royal Oak is ideally placed for walking in Snowdonia, or, a short break. The hotel has good car parking, rooms are as stated in the literature. As well as online deals, you will get good deal if you contact the hotel in person. Breakfast and dinner features local produce. The hotel restaurant is well appointed with good service. The wine list is fairly priced. In addition to the restaurant and the grill room, the hotel has the Stables, pub which serves a great selection of food and drink. On various dates there is live music ranging from male voice choirs to jazz bands.
The Stables is very popular, however, it does not interefere with the comfort of hotel guests.

Room Tip: Facing the Hoylake road, you can have the benefit of windows to the front and to the side.

Our second stay at Betws-y-Coed and on both occasions we have called in to the Royal Oak Hotel for morning coffee and later in the day to eat. The staff are lovely and very friendly, the service excellent and the hotel very comfortable. Looking forward to a return visit next year.

We were at the Royal Oak Hotel over the bank Holiday weekend24-27th August . Super location and helpful reception staff. The Grill restaurant needs a bit of updating we thought, looked a bit tired . Have had better breakfast ! Lack of choice..

We called at the Royal Oak for tea after climbing Snowdon. My husband and I had visited Betws-y-Coed in March and had read the menu then, so we thought we would give it a go. It was very nice indeed. The staff were really friendly and attentive, the food was beautifully cooked and presented. I would recommend this place for a good meal.

I arrived at the Royal Oak fairly late. I was greeted by the friendly reception staff and assisted with my bags up to my room as there was only the stairs. The room was spacious and pleasant and with all the mod cons you would expect. The bed was very comfortable and the room clean.

In the morning I went down for breakfast and had scrambled eggs with smoked salmon which was lovely. Compliments to the chef!

Another great advantage of staying with the Royal Oak as you can have access to the gym facilities down the road.

Thanks for a short but lovely stay...:)

stayed at the royal oak last night. booked two double rooms, one for my father and one for myself.
after a good day walking in the hills we arrived at the hotel at approx 5pm. there was ample parking. check in was friendly and efficient. we were told we that as part of the booking we could have free use of the leisure facilities at a nearby hotel. so after leaving our bags in the rooms, we went to this leisure complex and had a swim and a jacuzi - very relaxing after the walking.
we went back to the royal oak and had a few drinks outside their grill bar. prices were very reasonable. after a drink it was back to the rooms for a shower.
our rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean.
the weather was very good and the rooms were a little warm so we lkeft the windows open when we went out. we had a good evening walking around the pretty village, having drinks and a meal while we were out.
returned to the royal oak for a last drink before bed. the grill bar had a quiet jazz band playing live. we had our drink in the main bar inside the hotel entrance. it was a nice place to relax after a long day.
up to the rooms and to bed, i left my windows open and drifted off to sleep with the sound of jazz floating up to my room.
breakfast the next morning was served in a conservatory. able to help yourself to a continental selection and fruit juices, toast etc. upon being seated we were able to order a full welsh cooked breakfast. just like to say thanks to the very helpful and friendly and breakfast staff for a great meal.
all in all a great place to stay, and i hope to return for another night in a couple of weeks, bringing my wife for a treat. many thanks to all the hotel staff.
