Stayed with an 'on-line deal' which made it good value for money. Excellent food in the restaurant in the evening and each morning for an excellent breakfast, with great choices. Good, spacious 'superior' room and nice friendly staff. Only having double beds is a bit of a shame, we get used to at least King sized - and pillows/bedding inferior.

Stayed for weekend break in a superior room which was well equipped and plenty room and a nice spacious bathroom. The room was quiet and the staff very helpful in providing local information and directions. The restaurant was small but breakfast was a good choice. Local produce and the cooked breakfast with lots of options was delicious. The hotel is on the main road with free undercover parking. The large department store opposite is amazing. The interior beautiful with a lovely spiral staircase and the nicest coffee shop in the area. Lovely spot in many respects for those train enthusiasts and also for the close proximity to Portmerion which was a great day out and the beautiful countryside. Lovely old charm which we thoroughly enjoyed and would stay again.

Room Tip: Worth paying the extra if you like a bit more space

We are glad to hear you found your weekend break enjoyable and were happy with all aspects of your stay, so much so that you would chose to stay again. With the location of the hotel it does allow a varied break at different times of the year with the many local attractions and natural beauty there is to be seen in the surrounding areas. We do hope to see you again.

Went for a Christmas meal with family. The food was basic but ok the staff had no personality whatsoever and there was absolutely no Christmas spirit. The decor was bland, just a very small light dislay in the restaurant and cheap crackers at the table.

Room Tip: Never stayed at the hotel only ate there. I wouldnt rush there for food there are plenty of better places to eat in the area.

This does surprise us given the continued approval and praise received on the food we serve. With the packed full restaurant and lounge on Christmas day and the beautiful trees at the lobby and lounge along with the touches through the hotel, the festive spirit is very much evident. We are sorry to hear your view.

Stayed in a larger family room which was both comfortable and spacious. New bed, pillows, duvet, carpet and bathroom; exceptionally clean throughout

Staff all very friendly and welcoming and many nice new touches since my last visit.
Breakfast was excellent and dinner on one night included local Welsh Lamb and Belly Pork which was exceptional in presentation and taste. For the quality, I thought the prices were cheap!

A highly recommended hotel for those that appreciate good food and service but not for cheapskates.

Room Tip: A larger room

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of December in a small double as part of a KGB deal. The bedroom was clean and adequate in size and the shower room quite tight for space. My partner, who is a rugby type couldn't fit his shoulders between the shower and the wall to properly shave in the morning, but once I discussed this with a house keeper, who in turn told the manager, he quickly got on the phone to me and offered us a free upgrade to a larger room. This room was great and the manager and his staff so friendly, we were very grateful for his concern. We ate in the hotel one night and were impressed with the quality of the food, although I did feel it was quite expensive. Maybe offering a fixed 2 or 3 course menu with a fixed price might be a better incentive for diners. All in all we were happy with our stay and reckoned it was great value for money with the deal we got. It is also very handy for walking straight into the town. A big thank you to all the staf for being so caring and friendly.
