Positive Reviews

Traditional Welsh manor has character.

This establishment occupies premises with a long history; indeed it still has Victorian and Tudor features. Therefore, many guests thought the hotel with its eclectic layout and idiosyncratic rooms was quirky and had bags of individual character.

Tranquil and idyllic Snowdonia location.

Most reviewers said they liked the tranquil and beautiful location, which is surrounded by stunning Snowdonia countryside and pretty gardens. Guests thought it was convenient being just off the A470 main road but far away enough for traffic noise not to be audible. Lovers of the great outdoors were in their element at this quiet rural retreat where guests can visit nearby waterfalls, a gold mine, take walks in the wild Rhinogs or head to the coast for a day at the beach. Dog owners also liked being able to bring their pets with prior notice.

Friendly welcome.

Being a small country hotel, many guests liked the way the hotel offered customer service with a personal touch and a leisurely ambience. Reviewers generally described the staff as friendly, helpful and brimming with local knowledge.

Negative Reviews

Rooms had shortcomings for some.

Occasionally guests reported dust on some of the furniture in the rooms, cobwebs and missing light bulbs. A few guests thought the rooms were a bit tired-looking for their taste. However, most said the rooms were more than adequately clean and comfortable for their stay.

Patchy Wi-Fi.

Some guests struggled with the free Wi-Fi service, describing it as unreliable with sluggish speeds.

Mixed on food.

Guests occasionally encountered slow service and a limited menu during evening meals and there was a mixed reception for the food itself ranging from excellent to poor. Guests’ views on breakfast were more united with most saying they liked cooked options using bacon and sausages from the local farm.
