Betws –y-Coed promises natural beauty, outdoor activities and the perfect base to explore the delights of Snowdonia National Park and its surrounding area. Although only around 600 people live in the village it has been a tourist honeypot since Victorian times so there are plenty of hotels, guesthouses and hostels to cater for every taste and every budget.
Hotels in Betws-y-Coed
There are many reasons to stay in the heart of the village, perhaps overlooking the spacious village green. The village boasts outdoor shops that put the offerings in larger cities to shame and there are a wide range of choices of places to eat or inns to recover from your day’s excursions. Take your pick from self-catering accommodation, luxury hotels or inviting guesthouses in the historic 19th Century buildings that characterise Betws-y-Coed.
There are several three and four star hotels in the village but you can also find cheaper hotels offered by national chains or independently run available here.
With three rivers converging near the village, the Llugwy, the Conwy and the Lledr, there is no shortage of rooms with a river view. Out by the dramatic Swallow Falls, just a couple of miles from the centre, you can enjoy a hotel that delivers stunning scenes from every window and provides a romantic, rural escape.
Many of the hotels lining the banks are particularly aimed at those looking to enjoy the fishing and are a great place to compare your boasts about the one that got away over a convivial drink in the bar area.
Hotels to Get Away from It All
In the stunning countryside just outside Betws-y-Coed, fringed by forests, you can find country manors that have been converted into luxury hotels. Set in their own spacious, landscaped grounds these offer all you need to pamper yourself after a day’s hiking or rattling your bones on the mountain biking trails.
For those on a budget there are plenty of self-catering cottages both in the village and nearby. There are three hostels within five miles of the village centre, ideal for walkers who just want somewhere to rest their weary heads. One hostel overlooks the dramatic Swallow Falls making it an excellent choice with views that hotels costing much, much more cannot include as part of their amenities.
