Our stay was for three nights paying £240 which I thought was good value.On arrival we were told that we were staying in the rooms within the annex at the back of the hotel accessed via the car park.Room seemed quite small for a double but was clean and easy accessible from the car which was a plus (didn't need to lug cases etc up stairs) so we felt comfortable despite the small size. However the problem came as we were in the room on the ground floor with a second floor above us. We had two different persons in the flat above us who decided to get up early ie 6.30am first night and 5.30am the second night ,which disturbed us as we could clearly hear them walking about. It appears that insulation is non existent. I am sorry to write this but felt a need as it did spoil the stay somewhat despite the staff being very helpful and friendly and the meals (bar meals which we opted for) were exceptionally good value for money!! Also the breakfast was excellent and again the staff very helpful.

Room Tip: Do not accept a room in the annex (very small)

The Loon Hotel is a great place to stay. They have great service and are so hospitable and helped and catered for everything we asked for. It's a quaint hotel by the sea with lovely people everywhere we went in the hotel both guests an staff who were attentive. The only down fall is the rooms are small even the king sized rooms. All in all great experience.

we booked this hotel for three nights initially as we left it till late to book hotel for April long bank holiday weekend. This was the only hotel available near Snowdonia. But after reading reviews we cancelled out booking and just opted for one night stay. To be honest it was a good decision. we paid 101 pound for one night in family room which to me was not good value for money we stayed in much better places for much less. when we arrived we found that a coach tours bus filled with very hyper people was there. our room was on ground floor and people in room above us kept on banging there door till late in the night. Room was ok but we found Chocolate stuck to one of the quilt. clearly the cleaning staff did not change all the covers. bathroom was clean.
Again in morning when we went for breakfast it was chaos in the room. Coach party people were there and were all over the place. food was being server in buffet style was was not lasting more then a min in trays. In end we had to wait for the coach party to finish off which they took their sweet time to finish. but in end we just left.
will not stay again for the price the room and service was not value for money.

Having being given a voucher whilst sitting on the front at Criccieth for 10% off the Sunday carvery we decided to book. At the bar we paid for four small carverys (£7.50 each = £30-£3 = £27) a glass of lemonade, a soda water and two glasses of tap water. My elderly Dad was charged £31.00. When he questioned the discount he was told the price was correct. That either makes £4 for expensive lemonade and soda water( usually free) or they charge for tap water!. The carvery was turkey, pork or beef. We were given one small frozen Yorkshire pudding, two small roast potatoes and could help ourselves to creamed leaks, carrots, cabbage, boiled potatoes and parsnips. The beef was so tough the table rocked when we tried to cut it. We took the beef back on a saucer and had to have another meat instead taken back via the same saucer. The hotel was freezing and most of the people had coats on whilst eating and there was virtually no atmosphere. The walls are very garishly decorated in large shocking pink flowers. We got an apology from the chef for the beef.
We were planning on using the hotel for midweek meals but changed our minds. Think we must be spoilt in Yorkshire with our carverys!

I found this hotel via booking.com & must admit value came into the decision to book. My partner has family in Criiccieth & knows the area well. On arrival I was surprised at the size of the hotel. The decor is dated but in some ways could be classed as retro. The reception is warm & the rooms are comfy with nice size bathrooms. For 2 of the days we had a view of the Castle & the sea from our bedroom window. The hotel is really clean & well kept. We decided to stay an extra night & had to move rooms but the room we moved to was big & comfy too. The breakfast was good with lots of variety & catered for all. We had bar food on the first night which was value for money & just what bar food is. The location is lovely although its a steep walk to the sea, it is an ideal location for exploring some of North Wales.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view
