Positive Reviews

Located in the centre of town

Although off the main road, the hotel is easy to access and find as well as being so close to many conveniences and amenities such as the supermarket and various restaurants and pubs. Fans of outdoor walks will enjoy the close proximity the hotel has to the Menai Strait.

Breakfast is included

A full English breakfast is served daily in the restaurant and this comes at no extra cost so you can start your day off right with a hearty meal!

Warm and friendly owners

The hotel management are praised for being particularly warm and welcoming, adding a personal touch to the guests' experience and working hard to help where they can.

Negative Reviews

Building is in disrepair

Although it is quite a charming old building, the hotel lately has been allowed to become run down and could use plenty of maintenance and basic cleaning to improve its appearance and preserve the building's old charm.

Bar can get quite noisy

Being in an area near a university, the bar gets busy on some nights mainly with students so guests staying in rooms just above or adjacent to the bar may well experience noise until late. There are also a number of pubs in the nearby area so to avoid noise from outside, request a room on a higher floor.

Rooms a little outdated

The furniture and fittings in the guest rooms generally look as though they've seen better days and could do with replacing or repair. The standard of cleaning could also be improved- there seems to be little attention to detail paid in terms of cleaning the carpets and bathroom tiles, fixing cracks in plaster or tiles, etc.
