Guest Comments

Cosy pub and restaurant

Being able to amble downstairs each evening to the cosy pub and restaurant helped make our week stress free. Breakfasts were generous and hearty. The hotel owners were very friendly and helpful.

Food was very good

We went to the restaurant for dinner being out of options for a decent choice in Blaenau Ffestiniog, and had a lovely evening. Food was very good, with a good selection, and very reasonable too. Was very comfortable and just what was needed after a long day's walking.
