A very intimidating welcome there is no reception and arriving around 6.30 pm pushed my way to the bar ,where the chap really isn't interested and didn't seem to know what he was doing and I felt most unwelcome and allotted a room with reluctance ,
The room was good ,warm and very clean and refurbished to a high standard , although being an old building there are the odd noises of pipe work and cisterns being flushed in rooms above ,
Breakfast was very good although the room was very cold ,and the Lady never smiled or really acknowledge you
Food was available in the bar area at night but it was disappointing to hear obscene language while eating your meal ,the bar maid was very good and efficient and seemed interested and wanted to know if everything was ok ,the food was presented well with great chunky chips unfortunately the gammon was not that great
Be careful with the shower it got red hot one day and freezing cold the next
Overall the "Hotel" was ok but maybe this is not that important and the Pub was more important ,it is very quaint but intimidating if you are not used to the shouting and swearing while having a meal

Stayed here on a Saturday night with Barry, good atmosphere, enjoyed the dj.
Food was good, however you need to arrive early incase you miss the carvery. A little niggle was the barman who seemed a little too fond of his beard.
Would recommend, Barry and I enjoyed it, especially the animal impersonator.

We had dinner there last week with some friends. Nice decor in rustic pub. Private dining room separate from the bar.With seperate entrance. Friendly waitress,who was rushed off her feet. but she was very capable.
All of us had a really good meal, Parsley mash with Loin of Cod and mushy peas.[ Veg available instead] One of us had sausage and mash[ best in the area he said] only two things on the menu not available. good house wine at reasonable prices. Shame desserts weren't home made. Overall I would recommend this as very good Pub Food. Prices reasonable ; with beer and two bottles of house red. £85.

Here for two nights to attend a wedding. Met by a very cheery lady and there was no delay in showing us our rooms. I had a single room on the first floor ( please note - no lifts - not mentioned on the website as far as I can see). The room was small but quite well equipped and clean with TV and tea making facility. However, I would have appreciated a small chair or at least a hook of some kind in the bathroom, which was disproportionately big. Interesting use had been made of the space available in a old building, adding to the character, and the room had obviously been refurished recently.
We had called ahead during our 8 hour +/- journey, to book a table for a meal on our arrival, and there was quite a delay in answering the telephone. In fact we made two calls the first being unanswered. The food was excellent.
There was no designated reception- the "bar" area in what was also the breakfast room doubled as reception. I got the impression that the rooms are not the main source of income for this hotel. There is considerable bar facility and there is live entertainment on Saturday night, which we missed having returned from the wedding after 01.00, but I overheard other guests complaining about the noise. This was mentioned in another review and Room 4 seems to be the main source of this problem.
Breakfast was very good with a good choice of cooked items and a selection of fruit, cereal etc.
The staff were all very pleasant, but seemed to be a bit thin on the ground.
I would use this hotel again, although I have had similar or even better facilities for less cost, but it suited our requirements on this occasion.

Room Tip: Avoid room 4 apparently!

Boked just before travelling 6 hours to attend a wedding.
Arrived later than expected,anddespite first impression in the pouring rain in a narrow street, couldn't have asked for a warmer reception.Very smooth check in and shown straight to my very clean, functional room. All facilities explained, given a key for late returning guests,and out to explore the area.
Great night sleep, loads of hot water, free wireless and parking outside the door. great breakfast and off now to the wedding!
Would reccomend. Great value.

Room Tip: Room 5 single en suite does what it says on the tin.No hesitation in coming again.

This is an interesting older property in the centre of Pwllheli, the hotel has character and some quirky aspects - the bar and its 70s style disco lights on a Saturday night! The rooms are spotlessly clean, I believe they have been renovated recently and as a result have flat screen tvs and are nice and bright but are more is sync with an 80' s hotel. The staff are very friendly, were happy to accommodate any of our requirements and the food is excellent. On first viewing the menu looks quite basic but when all of the specials and all the extras are included the menu is quite extensive. If it Pwllheli this hotel is worth checking out for good old fashioned character and hospitality.

Room Tip: If staying over a weekend request a top floor room.
