We spent time at the Saracens for my husbands birthday. The staff are very friendly and efficient. The room was spacious and well equipped for our needs. The food was lovely and the breakfast was exceptional.

We stayed for a weekend at The Saracens Head and it was wonderful. Great location to enjoy the lovely village of Beddgelert also for walking. We climbed Snowdon and it was lovely to come back to the comfort of our lovely room. We took our 2 dogs with us and they were also made very welcome. Lovely stay, would definitely...

The Saracens Head was a perfect place to take friends who'd never visited Beddgelert before or climbed Snowdon. Our room was beautifully furnished, modern, comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed our meals here both evenings. The staff were really friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay here again and feel happy to recommend it.

An extremely good hotel with excellent accommodation, friendly, helpful staff and great food. The hotel is very well situated in the village of Beddgelert with fantastic views of the Snowdonia national park. Our room was beautifully refurbished and very nicely decorated with a modern, rustic feel; bathroom was particularly spacious and well appointed. Breakfast and dinner were really excellent. Thanks...

We stayed at the Saracens Head for one night after walking up Snowdon. The deluxe double room we stayed in was beautiful with really lovely views out the window. The room was huge and the bed very comfy, had a nice selection of teas, coffees and biscuits and the decoration in the room was really homely (I always think this...

Just about perfect location for Snowdon and other walks. Not fat to Portmeirion or Conway and easy access to the rest of Snowdonia although roads can be tight and lack of signage can be irritating- take your satnav. Hotel was very clean,rooms excellent and staff very friendly and helpful. An excellent hotel in a fabulous location.

The Saracens Head is the only hotel we have visited where you dog is virtually ushered in more so than you are yourself!

Mu husband and I, along with our two little dogs visited The Saracens today. We were greeted by a very friendly, polite and efficient young lady. The food and drink were excellent, the establishment was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Many places claim to be "dog friendly " but turn out to be merely dog tolerant. The Saracens however welcomed...

Room was clean and tidy, however the maid had forgotten to give us clean mugs (oops!). Nonetheless, the food was delicious, may not be suitable for people who aren't dog lovers as dogs were frequently barking in the restaurant. Also, the wifi does not work in the rooms, only in the reception area. The staff at the hotel definitely go...

Lovely clean quiet room, fab food and wine and great service. Staff can't do enough for you, they even made us breakfast a little earlier so we could get away to climb Snowden. Good shops and amenities nearby and there is of course the wonderful scenery at Snowdonia National Park. Will be returning - thank you!
