This café is next to the Plas Curig Hostel and you really need to get to the café early if you want breakfast or else its a 40 min to an hour wait :( Not good if you are planning a trip to Snowden so ventured to a café further along which was nice and cheaper.

This was my first ever hike up a mountain and it went well. I took a bus from Llanwrst down to Capel Curig and started my walk from there. Most of the time you can see the mountain up ahead and you gradually get higher. After about a mile the real hiking begins as you encounter rocks and fairly steep... More

Tackled from Capel Curig. Its not an overly steep hike but quiet long - about 6 miles. There is a ridge climb to the summit but we ran out of time and never made it :(

When you're in the middle of nowhere this is a welcome sight. Spacious and accommodating for walkers/climbers.

Weird to review a mountain that wasn't exactly built as a tourist attraction but thought it was worth saying that this is a good climb for kids. Ours (mostly) loved it, especially the scramble up to the summit. Good one to do that isn't risky but does challenge them a bit.

Loved this hike and scramble, little bit hairy in places, very exhilerating, views were incredible and definitely not the last time I hike this area.

Early start up Moel Siabod, set off at 7am from the cafe. Lovely walk up to the top, the views over snowdonia are stunning! A slow walk up and down plus a sausage buttie and a coffee at the top took about 4 hours 30. For dog owners there are sheep about on the hills and a few stiles that... More

This seems to be a really popular place to stop for food and for advice on walks in the area the food is plentiful and reasonably priced they offer overnight parking for a few pounds and showers. Would highly recommend and we would most definitely return. Staff are really friendly and helpful.
