    Great stay , location & price

    Great little stay, great location , good size room, clean and comfortable beds. Restaurant and bar is really nice. Breakfast is really nice lots of choice hot and cold. Evening meal menu is not extensive but each meal is beautiful . Would recommend booking a table as everywhere in village was fully booked mid week

    Clean and tidy with friendly staff

    Stayed here Aug Bank Holiday 2021. First of all: the staff were great. Really friendly, helpful and just the right level of chatty. Couldn’t fault them. Breakfast were fantastic. The room was very clean and tidy - I think ours was newly refurbished. The public areas were a bit tired, but that can be forgiven considering how long they’ve had to be closed due to Covid. Evening meal was disappointing. If you rely on your phone and the internet then avoid! The hotel Wi-fi worked great downstairs but not on the top floor, but hey, we were a long way from the router and I’m not blaming the hotel for a lack of coverage by o2, I’m just warning you. Beddgelert is really pretty, a good base for walkers and cyclists or explorers. If we’re ever in the region again, we’d have no qualms about staying there again. Would recommend.

    No management

    Appears to be no management at this hotel. There is no receptionist to deal with any enquiries. I tried emailing for two weeks to clarify things prior to our arrival but no response atall. We requested a roll out bed for our daughter which wasn’t there on arrival and we had to chase. The bed itself was horrendous to sleep on, so we all had to cram in the king, which was a little tight. (Our daughter is 14). On the plus side, the staff, were helpful, always pleasant and rushing about. There’s just not enough of them… Hotel decor / state could do with a bit of modernising, but clearly the main beds, carpets, curtains were new which was nice. Overall not a bad place, just the small things I.e TV remote not working, one bedside lamp not working, but could be really nice with a little more investment.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Stayed as a party of 2 abd 3. No bed made up for child in room on arrival. Staff apologetic and would do so whilst out. On return folding bed and bedding and pack of biscuits outside door. Had to make bed, including putting sheets/ mattress and pillow covers on ourselves. Supplied extra pack of biscuits but no towelling or cup. No toilet tissue in room on arrival. Parents found left over clothing in one of the drawers in their room. Poor attention to detail, unopened boxes in lounge/ drink glasses remain in place. On the plus. Shower / bath warm and clean. Staff friendly. Good breakfast . Would be so bad if price was lower. Overcharging for what they delivet

    It is a lovely hotel with plenty of history inba wonderful locations. The staff were great, especially the barman and Max the waiter. Food was delicious. The problem I have was , yes the place is tired and dated and could do with a good make over( especially the ensuite) but the cleanliness was grim. Nit the bedrooms but the bar, tye ladies toilets, outside! Oh dear. Where is the management going round seeing black bin bags by tge door onto the bar. Overspilling ash trays. Tye tables in and out were very sticky and dirty. I was dying to get a cloth and some spray and clean windowsills etc. These are things that could be easily rectified. We stayed in The Brown's Hotel in Laugharne and The Hafod in Devil's Bridge to two previous nights. Both were tge same price as your room. Take a visit to those hotels please and see their definition of a £140 a night fir B&B. Lool at the standard of cleanliness!!! We did like it at the hotel and would probably come back if you have a proper deep clean! Thanks anyway

    DO NOT USE HOTELS.COM

    My husband and I had booked The Royal Goat Hotel for 23rd April - 26th April 2021. On arrival, after travelling 6 hours, we found the hotel was closed, boarded up, and in the process of being refurbished (please see photos attached). To say we were disappointed is a major understatement. We had travelled over 200 miles to a destination which is not available, so we need a comprehensive explanation from Hotels.com, a full refund for the £364.01 cost of booking with you, AND additional compensation for fuel, time wasted and a severe level of distress on what should have been an anniversary weekend break for us. Please contact us as a matter of urgency to discuss and confirm how you intend to reimburse us for this appalling service. If we do not receive a satisfactory response by 30th April 2021 we will report this matter to Police, and begin legal action against you for obtaining money by false pretences.
