“Looks better than it was”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The initial impression of the hotel was good, when it came to eating in the restaurant we found the menu uninspiring, with a tendency towards neuvo cuisine, but only in portion size, after two nights we found eating out preferable as there was no alternative to the set menu, when it came to breakfast there was no deviation from the menu i.e if you asked for scrambled egg and not poached we were told " oh I don't think so I will have to ask the chef" it seems like the staff were afraid to ask the chef to change anything, even though it said at the bottom of the menu you had the option to choose to change the choice, we found the staff to be very friendly, although the rooms were reasonably clean there was a dead fly on the window sill when I arrived and it was still there when I left three days later also I found broken glass on my bathroom floor which I almost trod on, there seems to be a lack of desire to clean windows or glass which somewhat spoils the view from inside, the reason we chose to stay there is because three years ago we came across the hotel when we were looking for somewhere to eat as the food was excellent, and the owners there showed us the newly refurbished rooms, we understand that the hotel is now under new management that don't seem to meet the standards or passions of the past.

This is a most impressive building on the main road into Llanrwst. We just called in for a drink because we assumed that it would be far too expensive to eat there,
The chaps in the bar were really friendly and they know how to serve drinks properly.
The atmosphere was good so we looked at the menu and decided to stay for dinner. It was excellent value! The best evening meal we had during our stay.

Medium range hotel in a wonderful location
The manager was charming and helpful and the young members of staff were well organised and polite
We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any of our friends

My wife booked a short break which she found on offer in our local paper, to be honest the offer sounded too good to be true. We thought "there's bound to be a catch", there was no catch and we had a fantastic 4 day stay.
I'm not one to go on and on so let me be brief:

The good:
The hotel location, decor, feel, atmosphere, and friendliness of the place itself is fantastic.
The staff are truly first class and a real asset (special mention to the lady who serves breakfast 3 out of the 4 days, she is simply brill).
Downstairs gents toilet are genius (but fix the TV screens).
The rooms are cleaned daily and our room was spotless every day.
The food served is fabulous.
The quality and price of the beer is really good.
Love the hotel cats, and the dog and the fact that you allow dogs is great (even though we did not have one)

The areas for improvement - notice I have not said bad as these are areas that in all honestly are not bad but do need improvement:
The shower performance is poor (temperature and pressure).
Room TV reception was poor and position in relation to the bed needs a re-think (maybe on a wall bracket).
Towels in the room, although very clean are looking past their best (threads hanging off the edges).
Some areas of general access cleaning needs tightening up on (cobwebs, etc).
Food times could be extended to give more flexibility.
Bed length was a little short (strange one i know, but there you have it).

There you have it, I could go on and on but honestly I have stay everywhere, camping for pennies to top class hotels in major cities and I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for. This hotel is a very open and honest establishment and I wish the new owners (the Manager and Head Chef all the very best for the future).

Would we stay here again...........absolutely, in a heart beat we would!

All the best P & J x

Had out wedding reception here 2 weeks ago what a fantastic hotel and location.We booked all the rooms which myself and all my family were happy with, some of the rooms that have not been updated yet may be a little dated. But they were clean, warm and very comfy and the staff were very friendly and helpful.
the food served for dinner and breakfast was fantastic!! Could not have chosen a better venue for our wedding reception!!
