Stayed one night on Friday 11th July 2014. StFf very friendly and rooms comfortable. Bed very comfortable. Meals a little pricy however clearly a big hotel with likely high overheads so understandable when they have to charge higher. Could park at the hotel whilst climbing Snowdon before booking in. A good stay.

We brought a group of 49 here over the May bank holiday and had mixed reviews from those on the trip. The first evening was a complete muddle for dinner as the staff were overwhelmed with the number of guests being served. Taking upto 30 minutes to get a drink. Many went to the bar themselves. Food was just OK!! Time to sit down was agreed in advance so why the issues? Breakfast on both mornings well managed. Sunday evening was better managed. Rooms OK some complaints about noise , several moved as they were out the back, one had a leak in the room! Overall - OK. Since the visit no one from the hotel has asked for any feedback!! Note: if you are bringing a large party ensure you have planned for any issues especially with the evening meals!!

Stayed here for 2 days, hotel room was not very good. Stuffy& seen better days. Meals very good & hearty. La carte meals very good. Hotel had only 1 bar in action as others were been done up. Staff in hotel helpful, but the guy at reception didn't know any information about the surrounding area as I would like. Good thing was the snowdonia railway was down the hill, but you must booked in advance to avoid disappointment!

Room Tip: Check what room your on before booking.

Stayed here on a Fri night with group who'd just finished the 3 Peaks Challenge. Staff were very friendly and helpful; cheerfully gave us a hand with unloading loads of luggage and parephenalia we had in the mini bus. We had a few pints in the bar and enjoyed a chat with some locals before dinner. Always a good sign when locals are using the place. Beer was nice including a couple of local cask brews which went down very well :-).
Had a cracking dinner with a black beef Welsh steak - one of the best I've ever had and served by some very friendly and attentive staff.
As some previous reviews have stated - the hotel is a little dated but we got a good deal, great food, great service and had a smashing time. I'll be back again!

You arrive. You are exhausted. You have done the three peaks.
You ask, when can we, eight of us order dinner in the restaurant.

9 is the answer. You check again...9 is given again... In fact every one of us checks at
different points

You arrive...it's 8.46. Last orders have to be taken at 8.45...

We're very sorry but that's it. If you had told us half an hour ago that would be fine but now it's not.

But, but, but...in any case we're only a single minute late, you can't seriously be saying that everything has packed up back there.

Manager summoned. The stupidity behind mindless stubbornness personified.

'Yes, well, sorry, I've just called the chef and he's in the shower'

'You talked to him in the shower'

'Yes'

'With a phone'

'Yes, er, no, er, anyway, that's the way it is see'

On refusing to apologise for their utter incompetence they seemed to accept culpability and completely missed the point by offering us the price of our bar snacks off our bills.

The lowest points were when they a) blamed a trainee... What sort of place blames a trainee - the shallowest and most flawed of explanations.

b) suggested that if we had pre-booked none of this would be a problem.

Of course the money hadn't been taken off our bill...that was promise of an incompetent trying to paper over the cracks in this tired, weary establishment.
