Positive Reviews

Handy village location in national park

Visitors loved the way this property was in the heart of an attractive and peaceful village with the highest mountains in Wales nearby. Another bonus was the proximity of village amenities, convenience stores and petrol stations. Motorists appreciated being next to the A5 and near the A470 for hassle-free access to area attractions. The breathtaking Snowdonia National Park was a paradise for climbers, walkers and mountain bikers. Guests enjoying outdoor activities appreciated the handy drying room for dealing with their soggy clothes.

Diners enjoyed the food

Many diners said they enjoyed a plentiful and appetizing cooked breakfast. There was also plenty of praise for the tasty homemade pub restaurant food.

Basic but affordable rooms

The rooms were reportedly straightforward but more than adequately clean and comfortable for a shorter stay. Guests liked the way some rooms had pleasant river views. Due to its often reasonable room rates, some reviewers said it offered fair value for money.

Negative Reviews

Some minor criticism of rooms

Some critics claimed the owners would do well to invest in modernizing certain rooms to address maintenance issues like an intermittent hot water supply, patchy Wi-Fi signal and outdated decor. There were also cleanliness grumbles about mould, insufficiently cleaned bathrooms, musty smells and stained bedding. Moreover, some rooms reportedly felt cramped. Some light sleepers complained that certain rooms were exposed to occasional traffic noise.

Mixed feelings about service

Despite many guests praising the friendly customer service, some critics claimed that complaints could have been handled better. It was also reported that the food service could get chaotic or slower during busy periods.

Limited free parking

As there was limited free parking on-site, during busier periods motorists sometimes had to resort to on-street spaces or a pay and display car park in the village.
