We booked two nights at short notice. The rates were very reasonable and breakfast was included. I could not have been happier with my stay. The hotel was welcoming, the room was very well presented, the staff could not have been more helpful and the food was outstanding. Beddgelert was breathtakingley beautiful. I can wait to go back.

We called at The Saracens Head for lunch en route to Snowdon. I have to say its one of the best decisions we've ever made. The food was amazing and we will definitely be returning. The service was first class.

We had hoped to book a superior double room, these were unavailable so our room was a standard double. It was however superior in every way. It was...

We enjoyed our meal so much that we ended up going back there again twice. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly and everywhere was very clean. I can't wait to go back again.
