A good nights sleep, a good breakfast, a warm welcome from friendly owners and a good wifi connection, what more do you want? It might be dated, but some improvement work was going on. I read some reviews from people who obviously expected too much, but if there is a genuine problem, why not talk to the owners about it?...

1st off, staff very friendly and accomodating, excellent welcome and helpful throughout the stay. Couldn't fault them. Unfortunately hotel itself has seen better days and cleaning. Everything looking tired. Mould around bathroom seals, sink leaking, wasps nest outside bedroom window, kettle smelt really odd when boiling, no tv in room.however, new bed sheets and a REALLY comfortable bed. Breakfast was...

OMG, what a dump, shown to a truly awful small double, miss matching floral bed linen, furniture had lacquer cracking off, an I imagined OD pills in top drawer and a hangmans noose in the bottom drawer...thick matted carpet, flat from 40 years of depressed souls walking around the room. Cubby hole of a bathroom, same carpet. Cobwebs. Could have...

I am honestly stuck for words to describe this terrible place! It is old, dared, dirty and just horrible. To make it worse (and you're not going to believe this), I returned after an evening out and was locked out! I rang, e-mailed, banged on the door...nothing. I slept in a minibus outside in the car park and at 7:30am...

We arrived late into Snowdonia and couldn't find a room anywhere. So we looked over at this ugly building and decided to give it a go. This has got to be one of the worst B&B's I have ever stayed in. The price wasn't cheap either - GBP 25 per person! It can't even be called a hotel - more...

The other reviews are pretty accurate and you will either love or hate it. Walking in the day and beer at night with mates its perfect for £25. Want a little time to relax in the room in between sight seeing it isnt for you. Unfortunately when the marathon is on your choices are limited if you want to be...

So we needed a cheap bed and breakfast before taking on Snowdon. Did it meet the criteria? Well in a word yes. It was cheap. The bed was quite possibly the comfiest bed I've ever slept in and the breakfast was spot on. The hosts were very accommodating and the pint by the real fire was good too. All that...

The hotel has damp and needs decorating. The shower is poor, but works. BUT it is so cheap, the owners are very accommodating (Ive used the kitchen to cook my own food!!) In fact I stay there 4/5 times a year to go training in the local area and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Well worth the money!!!!
