The room was very dated. Not impressed with only allowing WiFi for 2 devices. One paper bath matt for 2 people for the whole stay. TV old with bad reception. Needs updating. Not value for money. However breakfast in main building good.

We booked two lodge rooms. One we felt was below the standard of the other so we were moved the next day without any fuss. Food was so good we didn’t bother eating out anywhere else. COVID precautions we excellent and made us feel very safe. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing stay
My partner and I stayed here for two nights! We had prebook Dinner in another restaurant as the eat out scheme was running and we didn’t want to not get anywhere! They cancelled on us last minute however, the staff at Waterloo were really quick to find us a space in their restaurant and we were so happy they did because the food and customer service was AMAZING! The breakfast was also very nice! Cooked to order so really fresh and they catered to what you wanted! The hotel itself was clean and tidy, the bathroom was really nice and parking was great! The hotel is at the top of the town but again only 5/10 minutes to get to the opposite side of Betws-y-coed. I don’t really write reviews, but this hotel truly deserve this one! The staff were also incredible! We would definitely return here!
