Reviewed 21 June 2009

guests are there at the convenience of the owners and often it does not seem convenient. Tables in dining room so close together you bang elbows with next table. breakfast between 8am and 8.45am ONLY and be after 8.30 at your peril!! plates collected before you;ve finished eating. Orange juice etc taken away prematurely to hurry you up. Proprieter has 'favourites' and doesn't engage with other guests. you cannot be in your room between 9.30am and 12.30pm so elderly people are sitting in cars on the promenade in the rain from 9.15am,. tension in atmosphere and you cannot feel comfortable. Bathroom from 1960s bright yellow and shower ancient. Boot camp. Never again!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh - one good thing - the breakfast is nice if you are willing to eat VERY FAST!! And you need to know what you want for dinner before you start your breakfast.

I am in contact with Tripadvisor in an attempt to find out who wrote this review, so I can institute proceedings for libel, as his statement regarding guests not being allowed in their rooms is a downright lie.

The guests at the Abereistedd are given a warm welcome, and can come and go as they wish, AT ANY TIME!

We have owned the Abereistedd for 6 years, and in that time, have comletely refurbished every bedroom apart from room 1, which this person was obviously in. The shower may be old, but it is well-maintained, and works perfectly.

The dining room is not overly large, but is adequate for purpose. The times of breakfast are in line with other similar establishments in Criccieth. Dinner orders are taken AFTER breakfast has been eaten. The rest of this "gentleman"'s comments I put down to the fact he obviously didn't like us, which unfortunately happens occasionally.

Great place. We had a family room (room 8) which was more than enough for us - two linked bedrooms with views over the castle. Very clean, very friendly staff and very good food - not much else you could ask for!

We are a family of 3 in our 30's with a 4-year-old daughter and really enjoyed our overnight stay at The Abereistedd located in perfect surroundings - a stone throw from the beach and castle. The beds were the comfiest we have ever slept in and everything about the room was immaculately presented. The breakfast was cooked to perfection and we even got a fruit platter for our daughter. The staff we friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay at this hotel.

It would be great if you could book from their website.

The hotel is located across the street (with nothing on the other side of the street) from the beach. We had one of the several sea view rooms in this 12 room hotel and it was great sleeping to the sounds of the ocean. The room was cozy, but not too small, and had a shower-only bathroom. The room and bathroom were both exceptionally clean and the bed was very comfortable.
Our breakfasts were great, and they also do dinner (though we chose to eat in town). They provided great dinner recommendations- and be sure to make reservations (we even needed them on a Sunday night in October). The high-street in the little town of Criccieth is about a 10 minute walk, where there are several pubs and restaurants. However, the hotel also has a lounge/bar in the evenings.
If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing, and friendly place to stay you won't regret staying here.
