Very comfortable. Room had everything we needed and was clean. A hard bed was not to our liking though. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Cooked breakfast was good. We were a walking group and the hotel was well situated in Criccieth

Good location and clean, pleasant rooms. Excellent food and all at very reasonable prices. The public rooms had some outstanding antique furniture and there was a happy atmosphere among the staff who were all very helpful. I look forward to a return visit.

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at The Lion, Criccieth: we were given a specially adapted room, as requested, and were delighted that it really did have a view over the sea. The old building was a bit creaky, and access to the lift a bit tight, but whenever we encountered the slightest problem there was someone there...

The hotel was friendly, comfortable and food and service good. We only booked for two nights as we were going on tp Llandudno but would certainly return and stay longer as there...

Both our meals arrived quickly and were of a really good quality. Obviously made on the premises and cooked to order. Really good salad accompaniment to my...

“We had sea view room with walk in shower which was much better than usual shower over bath. Chairs were provided in room but not as comfy as the ones in lounge. A coffee table would have been nice as we had to balance mugs on window sill but view was worth it. It was clean and nicely furnished.”
