“not what expected”
Reviewed 19 September 2006

The abbey looks more upscale on the web that it actually is. We booked 2 rooms here for 1 night. Our rooms were furnished in a style inconsistent with the historic abbey - nondescript modern furnishings for the most part, and cheap details like plastic towel racks, etc. The lobby and stairs were not so grand as it looks on the web - it's lovely but quite compact. The exterior is beautiful. There is not any comfortable seating outside (just a few picnic tables) and they're right by the road in front rather than in the back.
Breakfast was average. We opted for dinner in the pub rather than the fixed price meal, and this was also average (same kitchen as dinig room) Just a bit too expensive for the what we had.

  • Liked — the historic building
  • Disliked — average
  • Tips/Secrets — not recommended for multi night stays
  • Stayed September 2006, travelled with family

We Wanted A Couple Of Days To Chillout Somewhere Quiet And We Found It At Maenan Abbey. Although Only About 8 Miles From The Main A55 At Conwy It Really Is A Peacefull Retreat. It looked Very Nice As We Pulled In The Drive Way And We Were Not Dissapointed As We Stepped Inside. Within Minutes Of Booking In We Were Shown To Our Room. This Was One Of Fourteen So Nice Personel Service . If I Was Honest I Would Say That There Were A Few Bits In The Room That Could Be Better .Really Only Trivial Like A Bit Of Wallpaper Hanging Off The Bathroom Ceiling . Must Say Though Excellent Size Bathroom With Bath And Shower. And The Bed Was Not As Comfotable As It Looked. But When You Looked Out Of The Window At The Stunning Mountain View Hey What The Heck!.Room Service Was Excellent. Food Very Very Good - Choice Of Bar Meals Or A Three Course Meal In The Restaurant .To Sum Up Then - What You Can Expect Is A Very Clean Pleasent Room With Tv - Drinks Tray - Kettle - Trouser Press . And By Request An Iron Complete With Board Delivered To Your Room With No Fuss .Overall Ideal Base For Travelling North Wales, On The Edge Of Snowdonia National Park And Within Half An Hours Drive Of The Coast Towards Llandudno - Colwyn Bay Ect. You Wont Be Dissapointed!

  • Liked — Location & Personal Service Unlike The Bigger Hotels
  • Disliked — The Bed
  • Tips/Secrets — Bar Meals - Better Value & Equally As Nice
  • Stayed August 2006, travelled as a couple
