Royal Oak Hotel
Ranked #3 of 7 Hotels in Betws-y-Coed
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 October 2013

We really enjoyed the food in the restaurant, and the Welsh harpist playing in the backround was a nice touch. The room we stayed in was ok only. A shower over the bath, with shower curtain, is not what I'd call 'luxury' as described, and 'luxury' toiletries were a small soap and dispensing bottles of shampoo and shower gel. That aside, the hotel does have ambience, and is well positioned.

Friendly staff. Superb food. Good location. Room 211 very large.but with windows open because room was hot we were kept awake for hours due to hundreds of birds roosting in the tree at the nexdoor pub so never got any sleep. However after checking out and touring the area we still phoned and asked could we book again. Offered another superlarge room by friendly darl haired girl on reception. She was very nice. Again food was excellent. Made our break having this hotel to stay at. Really enjoyed it.

We stayed here on a special deal of B/B and evening meal and were so glad we booked it. I'd never been to this area of Wales before. It is beautiful and the Royal Oak is well placed.
The staff were all friendly and very helpful when asked for advice. We couldn't fault our room for size, comfort or furnishings. It's not the fault of the hotel if people find beds too hard or soft. If it's that much of a problem stay at home.
The food we had over the two days we stayed was superb. I've never seen such a large bowl of mussels for a starter as my husband had in the restaurant. Our breakfasts were hearty with quite a variety to choose from.
I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel and would have no hesitation in going back.

9.9 out of 10 for our Evening meal this evening.
.1 lost as I would have liked a Steak knife for my Lamb.
But 10 out of 10 for the young female Harpist that played a selection of music during our meal.
We enjoyed it so much we have booked for tomorrow night.

Booked for a short break this hotel was far too hot. Even with the windows open (onto a busy main road) and a fan (provided but noisy) it was very difficault to sleep well. We were not informed about a group booking that meant the reataurant was not available on the second night, in fact the whole place seemed very busy and we had trouble getting a meal. There was a fault with the sink that was repaaired but left tiles missing in the bathroom and builders rubbish in the toilet/ bins. We were asked at 2230 to use another room for the bathroom after being in the room for 6+ hours!! Pn ther plus side the staff are very hard working and very helpful/ friendly. Food was very good

Room Tip: We upgraded to a special room, didn't look at normal but they can't be too good!

Stayed here on a dinner, bed and breakfast deal. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating towards my disabled father. The rooms were clean and well appointed and the dinner was outstanding. I can't fault the service given by all members of staff. Will definitely stay here again.

We booked a self catering cottage near Betws y Coed in August for a short break. When we got there we found it was unacceptable and for various reasons couldn't stay there - so late on a Friday night we found ourselves in Betwy y Coed looking for accommodation. The Royal Oak Hotel was fully booked however they had a double room in the adjoining annexe and having heard our plight, they were prepared to put another temporary bed in there for my son. They also gave us a very good rate which included parking in their own car park. The room was quite generous in size, recently refurbished with fixtures and fittings of a high standard. More important to us was the fact that the bedlinen and towels were of a high quality and clean - as was the bathroom - it was spotless.
All the staff we had dealings with were professional, polite an helpful. The waitresses in the Grill Bar where we were served breakfast and evening meal were great and nothing was too much trouble - and many of them were local and spoke Welsh. The quality of ingredients was excellent, a lot of local produce - which we like. My husband had the Welsh Mountain Lamb which was fantastic.
The location of the Royal Oak is excellent for touring North Wales and Betws y Coed is very pretty. I would have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends and no hesitation in staying here again.
