We booked and paid for a standard double room, with breakfast, dinner, a bottle of house wine (which we didn't receive), a welcome tray (which wasn't in our room) and dinner as part of a wine and dine spring offer. How disappointed were we. The female staff member who checked us in was bordering on rude, and very unhelpful. She seemed too interested in a conversation with fellow staff members.
Our standard room was located in a building off to the side, not the main hotel as indicated on their website. There was no valance on the bed base which exposed an old bed and the bed looked as if someone had laid on it. The carpet was old, dirty and frayed in places. The bed itself was terribly uncomfortable with the feel of mattress springs in the back when laid upon. The corridor where our room was also had an awful dog smell about it.
Dinner was just ok, & not sure if the fish I had on the first night was responsible for me being quite ill that night & my partner the next.
Breakfast was fine, however the staff need to slow down and stop trying to 'rush' everywhere. It's very off putting.
The only saving grace about this place is it's proximity to Snowdon mountain. That said, there's other accommodation in Llanberis just a short walk to the Snowdon train and walk trails, which I'm sure provide far better accommodation and service.
