This hotel is only a 2 star and yet provides an elegant and original venue, especially on the inside.
The room was delightful, the restaurant to a good standard, the grounds and views lovely and the attentions of Pat and Paul welcoming and genuine.
Perhaps most importantly the bar is large and well stocked, the open fire warming (yes, in June) and the cooked breakfast filling.
Just the place to explore Anglesey!

Just come back from a motorcycle weekend staying at the Gadlys. The ride to the hotel had taken 9 hours. Mainly in the rain, and with various riders losing the rest of the group. It was a long day, but we finally arrived. This is our second visit to the Gadlys, and once again we warmly greeted at reception by Pat. She quickly checked us in, and promptly made her way to the bar, to serve the weary bikers a well earned drink (what a woman).

We have been doing these motorcycle trips for many years. We always look for a hotel with great views. We want good food, quickly served. We want a bar with plenty of choice,. but above all it must be clean and tidy. The Gadlys ticks all the boxes.

Hope to see you again.

What a surprising place, very interestingly decorated, good food, genial hosts, nothing is too much trouble for Paul and his wife. Most of all though, what a stunning setting very large grounds, away from traffic where kids can roam safely, with interesting wildflowers, rabbits, guinea fowl, etc. A true country house hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 6, a family room, 1 double bed 1 single but room large enough for a cot too. Exelle...

This Hotel was a very clean hotel, The food was VERY GOOD, the rooms where a Hit or Miss (good or bad) depending on which room you had, I saw most rooms because our party took over the whole Hotel, my room was great but my friends was not good but clean !! There is no Lift so it was difficult for some. Paul was very charming man ( dry sense of humour ) But you new who the BOSS was (His wife Pat)!! She was pleasant of & on ?!!? I would certainly go there again if I get the right choice of room.

Room Tip: Four poster rooms, and family rooms very good, others Lucky dip !!

We spent an enjoyable 2 night break at the Gadlys. We stayed in room 3 which had a four poster bed. Charming room, tastefully decorated and very clean. Lovely views from the large window looking out over the gardens. TV, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities were provided in the room. There is ample parking and the Gadlys is very easy to find.

We received a warm welcome when we arrived and the proprietors were very attentive throughout our stay.

On the second night we had a lovely meal in the restuarant and even though Cheese & Biscuits weren't on the menu, this didn't pose a problem and the other half got a selection of cheese, grapes, biscuits and the glass of port he wanted.

The full English Breakfast was cooked to perfection and breakfast was served between 7.30am - 9am.

If you like a hotel, which is steeped in history and feels like your stepping back in time, then this is a good place to come. We enjoyed it and would recommend.

Room Tip: Room 3 has a Four Poster bed and a Nice View

At this time of year I organise a group of around about twelve couples and we go away for a three day golfing and hiking holiday to different places within a radius of no more than one and a half hours drive from Chester, England. This year we went to Anglesey and the Gadly Hotel on Angelsey.
The size of our party meant we were the only guests as we took all their rooms. For some hotels of this size this can be a real challenge with so many people arriving at the same place at the same time. Patricia though, the co owner with her husband Phil, coped with this potential problem with great method and precision.
The choice of dinner menu offered was varied (choice of 3 starters, mains and deserts) but was all of good quality served at the same time and hot (if it was a hot dish!!).
The rooms were clean and comfortable though the central heating could have been more efficient, however booster fan heaters were available in the rooms. The lounge and the bar offered comfortable places to relax and if you have a pianist in your party, as we do, you can have a lively time round the piano in the evenings and bar prices are very reasonable.
Where Patricia and Phil the owners also scored for us was in there understanding of our position and needs as the weather turned ugly on the Friday (March 22nd 2013). They were particularly good with two couples in our party who had booked to stay an extra night and in view of the extreme weather difficulties decided to cancel. There was no issue and no question of a charge , cancellation fee or anything just complete understanding. Not something you would get from every hotel owner.
If you are going to this part of Angelsey as individuals Gadlys is a good option for a few days. If you have a party the size of ours they seem to know how to cope. Without exception we all enjoyed our time there.

We decided to go away for New Year and after looking at numerous hotel offers, we opted for the Gadlys because it was sensiblly priced and we'd also stayed 6 years ago during a very hot summer. We arrived the day before New Years Eve on a cold wet windy day and were given a warm welcome by Pat. We had Room 3 which is the lovely four poster room and looks out on the nice front garden and has a sea view to the right. To ensure we were extra snug on such a cold weekend, Pat advised she had put a heater in the room alongside the heating being on and also put flannelette sheets on the bed so we'd be nice and cosy. After unpacking we went down for a late lunch and even though the Chef had left as lunch was just over, nothing was too much trouble for Pat and she kindly made us soup and sandwiches. In the evening we ate in the hotel bar after remembering the food was so good last time we stayed and again, we weren't dissapointed. The Lamb Shank and home made Steak & Kidney Pie were hearty and delicious and the home made Bakewell Tart is to die for. The cooked breakfast next morning was good and you can choose your options if you can't manage the full works. We were surprised to find we were the only guests staying in the hotel for the New Year Deal however on New Years Eve, the locals and Pat & Paul's friends arrived so there was a good gang of us and a great night was had by all. We were made to feel very welcome both by our hosts and their visitors and the buffet and hagis at midnight were delicious. The evening was rounded off by fireworks and a raffle, which ensured every couple got a prize and after a quiz and everyone then playing card games we eventually got to bed at 2.00am. As last time, we found our break very relaxing and thank Pat and Paul for looking after us as we will definitely stay again because we love the Gadlys old style country house charm. We've had no complaints on either of our stays but if we were to raise any points, it would be just 2 minor things in that a heated towel rail or small radiator in the bathroom would be a good idea particularly in winter and the mattress on the bed could maybe do with replacing sometime this year as even though it's comfy, it felt very soft and worn and was quite low. However, these are only minor things and would certainly not stop us from staying in that room again.

Camaes Bay as a whole is great little get away from it all place for a weekend as it's not too touristy and there a couple of nice walks from the hotel, which take you into the village and on to the beach. There is another hotel in the village called The Harbour which also do good meals as well as a traditional little pub, which has an upstairs porch filled with hanging baskets in the summer and makes a lovely place to sit and enjoy a drink whilst looking over the bay. Benlech Bay is also close by car and has a nice cliff-top walk which leads you to a pub meaning you can stop for lunch then walk back along the beach and Molferi is a lovely little place to visit and again has a nice village pub and a walk which takes you to the cliffs alongside the life-boat station.

Room Tip: Rooms at teh front have a nice view of the gardens and sea
