I was looking for a rural, romantic, dog friendly hotel. After searching on Booking.com and checking out the website, I settled for this hotel. We arrived at 3.30 and was told we couldn't check in until 4.00pm, the bar was not open and unable to get a drink following a few hours drive. The hotel is in a beautiful location...

Really looked forward to meeting up with my in laws for a lovely meal at this hotel. Menu looked amazing. Fine dining at its best was promised. However... - everything was clearly defrosted and then microwaved. Do not have duck, lamb or gammon at this restaurant unless you enjoy tragically over done meat with literally no flavour. - they had...

We booked the hotel mainly due to its tranquil setting and it's reasonable distance to Snowdonia National Park.
