Guest Reviews


” Wonderful staff, I was very well looked after. Lovely room and facilities. Service overall was second to none. The only place I would choose to come and stay in Betws-Y-Coed. “


” Good food, beer, friendly and very comfy beds which are very much welcome after a day in the hills. I thought it was good value and I'd be happy to stay here again when I'm next in the area. “
