I picked this hotel for a short break with my elderly mother (I hope she doesn't read that!) I know Criccieth as my partner, me and our dog stayed there in a self catering cottage last year and it's an excellent location and a pretty little town and beach.
Overall the hotel was very good. There is on site parking, though your chances might be slim if you arrived in the evening. There is an extremely comfortable reception / lounge area, a bar, dining room and outside lawn and patio area. All the staff were extremely friendly and courteous.... including the cat that works reception! Our room was good, though maybe the decor was a little tired. Carpets were clean, good quality linen, clean white towels and a very big bathroom. For £89 a night we thought it good value.
The dining room menu was perhaps a little dated and not very adventurous. We ate in the bar and the quality was fine. Very big portions too. We were also quite impressed with the breakfast which was served buffet style. There was fresh juice, fruit, cereal, porridge. You could also help yourself to sausage, bacon, tomatoes, beans, fried and scrambled eggs. You could also order boiled or poached eggs and kippers from the kitchen. Toast and tea and coffee were served at the table.
We both really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
