A little old and tired
Average quality hotel, very dated and an absolute maze of rooms. Food and service in the bar/bistro was great.

Would not consider anywhere else
Staff are really friendly and accommodating (room upgrade with no hassle). A very comfortable and clean place to stay with a hearty breakfast to get your day started. Perfect location for a trip up Snowdon (railway across the road)

Great place
During these pandemic times, would really recommend this hotel, all social distance measures in place, rooms cleaned to very high standards, bar and resturant so well run. I felt very safe. Hotel is ideal for the mountain train its right across road, food is very well presented and tasty. Breakfast was excellent. All in all can't complain about anything.

Hotel could do better.
Obviously once a beautiful hotel. Could do with some TLC. Staff friendly but not overly professional. Breakfast poor. No tomatoes on an English breakfast! Covid-19 wise, excellent as all staff were wearing face masks at all times. Overall I WOULD stay there again given prices and location.
Mike, gb5 night trip
Good 6.0
Considering that we came to stay with a child they gave us the smallest room that they had and on the top floor where window was fully opening, staff fixed it but it could have ended badly if not noticed, toddlers are quick.During Covid where you should avoid things like lifts, if you have a smaller child hotel shouldn’t book you on the top floor but be more considerate. Rooms are not cleaned and no toilet brushes if you have longer stay expect to live in filth. Breakfast was ok.
