Perfect location but a very tired hotel that looks like it was last renovated in 70’s. It’s desperate for a paint job and the interior very much needs updating with consideration to more forward thinking management with attention to detail. The quality of food was awful and avoid the steak and ale pie, both look and taste was very poor. Pizza is the safest option on the menu. The general feel is the hotel has been impacted badly during Covid and needs time to recover. Staff are friendly and do their best given the limitations. This area really needs a modern budget to mid range hotel. Everywhere looks pretty run down

Nice hotel in a beautiful location ideal for our short trip. The reception staff were very helpful. My evening meal was enjoyable but unfortunately my son”s pizza was only half eaten and disappointing with dry chicken pieces and the cheese had an unfamiliar taste. Breakfast was nice. I had a problem with a blind in my bedroom that fell off but I was able to fix back by standing on a chair. The views from the room were lovely. I stayed with my 12 year old son and am very grateful the hotel allowed children to stay as I was rather shocked other hotels in the village banned children. I would stay at this hotel again.

I booked this hotel as I was going to Wales to climb Snowdon. This hotel was right at the bottom of the Llanberis Path, so was very convenient for the meeting place to start the walk. My room overlooked the car park, and due to this, I heard every customer and every vehicle that arrived, including what appeared to be a delivery van at 4 in the morning. That aside, the hotel itself was very nice and you had the option of a bar or a restaurant for your meals. The staff were very friendly and the room was clean and ample for my two night stay. I would stay again, but might book a room overlooking the garden next time.
