Lovely weekend
Very cosy and clean hotel with excellent modern room and food. In the heart of some of the best walking trails in Snowdonia. Staff very friendly and also very doggy friendly. Excellent place to stay.

European Vacation
A truly fantastic place to stay while visiting this beautiful area. Dinner was brilliant as were the kippers for breakfast and we will definitely stay there again.
Clinton, au1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
Food was not good, especially for the price. To be honest, it was pretty poor. Staff were mostly very nice, helpful and welcoming (with one major exception who I do not wish to name and shame). Need better pillows on the beds - with staying in lots of hotels for business i've noticed this is an issue with many. Location is stunning. Room was very clean and nicely laid out. Overall a decent experience. I would recommend you stay, but eat somewhere else.
Luke, gb3 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Nice hotel with good food but you will have to book in advance on weekends as all pubs in the area close fairly early. Beddgelert is a very nice village!
Matthew, gb3 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful place in a pretty picturesque village. The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated with a cozy modern look. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating which made us feel so welcome to be there. We had a wonderful dinner outside and got to enjoy the whole scenery of the place. We loved our stay and only wished it had been for longer. Thank you for everything! The cheeseboard lady!

Very good 8.0
Beautiful setting and location
Gorgeous hotel, looks newly refurbished. Located in a stunning village. Restaurant and bar are very comfortable and good food choices and an enjoyable meal. Breakfast was excellent. We arrived 15 minutes prior to the 3 pm check in - we were told to come back after 3. Service at dinner although friendly was a bit chaotic. Service at breakfast was very attentive.

Overnight in Beddgelert
Mixed view, the bedrooms have been modernised and are very nice and comfortable but the public areas are very dark and in need of some tlc. The good was very nice both at Dinner and at breakfast.
Jeremy, gb1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
The bedroom was very nice, clean and comfortable. However the staff were inexperienced, overstretched through lack of staff and inattentive. Too many items not available on the restaurant menu whether that was breakfast or dinner. Not a cosy place to have a drink or eat

Love this place but needs a little more tlc
Myself and my wife with friends have stayed here many times. Great staff great food . But on our last visit I was disappointed with the way the building which was renovated 2 years ago. Is now needing attention in are bathroom the room above must have had a leak . Damp patches on the ceiling, paper peeling off . Sad to see easy maintenance not being kept up to a good level
