Positive Reviews

Welsh mountains escape.

The Oakeley Arms affords guests lovely views of the Snowdonia National Park in all directions, it is surrounded by good walks, close to beaches and a short drive away from the attractions of Blaenau Ffestiniog.

Pleasant staff, pleasant visit.

You will appreciate the very friendly and welcoming team, whose attention to detail is sure to make for a pleasant visit into the mountains.

Spacious and restful.

Despite its proximity to a main road, the rooms are quiet and provide a great night's sleep in comfortable beds, while the spacious and clean interiors also impressed.

Negative Reviews

The refurbishment call.

As is normally the case with such old buildings as those found at The Oakeley Arms, several guests found the decor to be in need of refurbishing, however most people did not have an issue with it.

Service and meals not always best.

While many were very satisfied with the restaurant offerings, some drop-in restaurant visitors were underwhelmed with the meals received and the service found during their visit.
