“No chance to get any sleep. The owners should decide whether they want to run a hotel or a pub.”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Terrible experience.

Stayed there for 2 nights and didn't have much sleep, because the pub downstairs was open until early in the morning.

The owners probably make a lot of money from the pub during the weekends. However, if they intend to open the bar this late, they should not take paying guests.

Came back home absolutely shattered and the whole weekend was spoilt.

Would not recommend to anyone.

This Hotel is a perfect location for a wedding reception or any excuse for a great party. The hotel proprietors and staff work so hard from the organisation of the event through to the big day ensuring a good time is had by all. We had a total number of 150 guests who were treated to excellent food, good wine and local beers with exclusive use of the whole hotel. The setting is superb overlooking the old Llanrwst bridge and the river Conwy with the Ty Hwnt y Bont ivy covered cottage in the background. Drinking Champagne in the hotel grounds next to the river whilst listening to a Welsh Harpist is an experience we will never forget.

The bedrooms have been recently beautifully refurbished in keeping with the vintage of the fine old building.

If you want a hotel who is interested in your day as opposed to just taking your cash then go to the Eagles. The Eagles is a hidden gem.

Stayed here with a group of friends, for a wedding celebration. We all enjoyed our time here,the location is excellent,lovely child friendly garden on the side of the river. The food was very good,the full welsh breakfast was delicious,but quite a challenge. The Eagles is close to local shops,and only twenty minutes drive to Conwy and the coast, which get very busy,so it was nice to get away from the crowds. The greatest asset is the staff, and management, who were exceptionally helpful, polite and friendly.I would stay here again.

During a tour of North Wales stayed two nights at The Eagles Hotel, we had not booked and called on spec, the owners had taken over within the last couple of years. We were shown a couple of rooms -a Executive Double Room and a Double Room, both looked excellent- the Executive had a lovely large shower in the en-suite, but we chose the Double Room that seemed equally lovely (maybe not quite as big) but had a nice big bath with shower in the en-suite,we chose this room as my wife prefers a leisurely bath. The Hotel is in the centre of Llanrwst, and we looked out to the front, and despite seeing the traffic we were not aware of any traffic noise. Plenty of parking and a central location, plus the owners are both very attentive, friendly. We stayed mid week and did not experience any noise disturbance from the bar.

Had an amazing day at the Eagles Hotel on 31st May 2014 celebrating the wedding of Tom & Sonia.
The staff, food and the grounds of the Hotel were amazing.

Big thank you to all.

Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of a wedding celebration. We didn't stay over but many of the guest did and were absolutely delighted with everything.
I have been told the Sunday Carvery is fantastic will defiantly be going back soon.

I booked this hotel with the intention of using it as a base for walking and exploring around North Wales. We were there for 3 nights during the latter bank holiday in May. We arrived late on Friday evening after travelling up from Devon. Initial impressions of the hotel were good - plenty of parking, quick and friendly check in and the room was well furnished in keeping with the old building, but with a nice modern en-suite bathroom. Other parts where the hotel excelled included:

Friendly Staff - from the cleaners through to the reception staff, everyone was very really pleasant and helpful. The receptionist in particular (I forget her name now, but a lovely lady originally from Essex) was very accommodating.

Food - The price of the room included breakfast and we also ate our evening meals here (the evening menu has a good variety and is good value for money). The quality of the food was excellent and the portion sizes are incredible. I ordered a full English on the first morning and couldn't believe the size of the thing; I didn't need to eat again until the evening!

Location - The hotel is situated on the A470 (10 minutes off of the A5). This makes it an ideal base for visiting local attractions including Snowdon which is about 25 mins drive away. It's next to the river and local shops and amenities are a stones throw away.

Aspects where I was a little disappointed:

View - We stayed in room 16 which is described as a double with 'River Views'. This is partly true in that you can see a tiny stretch of river from your room, but the dominating view is that of a car park, road and shops/kebab house.

Bed - It's a double rather than a king size. For a 6'2" man like me this makes a difference.

These things didn't matter too much and I still would have given the hotel 4 or 5 stars if they didn't combine with the big downside of this hotel - The Bar:

This hotel bar comes complete with late license (I presume??). The bar is open to locals and guests alike and was always full. This is great if you want to stay up drinking, but if - like us - you were in bed by 10 or 11 in the hope of an early start the next day, it was an absolute nightmare. The noise resonated throughout the building and it was literally impossible to sleep while it was open.This would have been bearable had it been open for normal pub times, but it stayed open to at least 1 o'clock every night and on the Sunday evening we could still hear raucous laughter at close to 2. To add to our misery any smokers or people leaving would hang around directly below our window shouting and screaming (as people do when they are drunk). At one point (about 2 in the morning), my normally quiet wife opened the window to ask some of these people to be quiet only to get a volley of abuse back. So we had no choice to lay in our awake in a hot room (because we couldn't keep the window open) tossing and turning in the small bed and wait for the noise to stop. Result - 2 nights of broken sleep and the last night of virtually no sleep at all and the prospect of 6 hour drive home.

At breakfast of the final day the receptionist commented about how tired I looked. I told her the reason why. The other family eating breakfast also said they had had a terrible nights sleep and the receptionist mentioned that the other family staying there had also told her the same thing so it wasn't just our room. She was very apologetic, but (unfortunately) couldn't do anything about our bill.

Looking back through the reviews, no-one else seems to have mentioned it so perhaps it was an unusual circumstance because of the bank holiday weekend. Whatever the case, it would certainly stop us from returning to this hotel in the future. Having spent the best part of £400 on the rooms, food and drinks I was hoping to come back home feeling a little more refreshed.

Lovely hotel, friendly staff, clean and comfortable. Would have been 5* if the shower had a bit more power. Very nice breakfast with quick service. My bed was huge and really comfortable, peaceful as well even with being street facing.
