Excellent night at the Padarn. The staff were brilliant and made the party go with a bang. The late licence was great and equally many party goers visited the restaurant early on for fantastic meals. Simon and Lesley put up decorations and even organised entertainment. Most amazingly, they managed to get refurbishments done on bedrooms to accommodate extra overnight guests.

I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed with our gluten free options, we are a new restaurant and are still training our staff, and we should have been able to provide you with our spring onion mash, peas and gravy, and tried to find you some other gluten free options that we could have put together for you. We will...

Very recently climbed Snowdon with some mates. We stayed at a near by hostel but after a bad experience there we decided to eat out. We stumbled upon the Pardarn by chance, we were created by a young lady who welcomed us and sat us down. The room we were in was a movie themed, which was quite quirky but...

This place looks like it's had a lot of work done recently and I think at one point we were the only ones there but the food was less lovely and the service was great, just what we were looking for. I wish the new owners every success!

This place has been done up very recently and you can tell! The interior of the bistro is very well thought through and creates a great atmosphere. The food is really nice, the service is great and you can't complain about the prices either! Great addition to the village, well worth a visit!

Just been here with the family. We all found something that we liked. The portion sizes were great for both adults and children alike. Service and price were very reasonable. You could also see that a lot of time and thought had gone into the menu choices. One of the best places we've been to in Llanberis. Would highly recommend....

Just got back from a weekend in Snowdonia. We visited the Padarn twice, first for drinks on their sunny terrace, and the next evening for dinner. We understood the restaurant had recently re-opened. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The menu was limited, but the food the 4 of us had, was very good. There were 4 French people...

I've stayed in a lot of hotels in the UK and the USA and I confess to usually heading for the big chains for the simple reason that quality and consistency are key. However, if you are staying in Llanberis there are no chains. So we went for the Padarn Lake Hotel. I followed up an initial booking enquiry last...

Been to the Padarn Lake Hotel on numerous occasions and had some very acceptable meals in the lounge bar. On a recent visit we found the Sports Bar the only area open. The hotel is up for sale and on our three attempts to eat other areas were in darkness. Can anyone enlighten us?

We have just returned from a long weekend at the Padarn. Geraint & Lucy are the perfect hosts, and the food they serve is exceptional. If I'm honest the hotel itself is in need of a little refurb but it is very clean and everything works. Would definitely recommend a visit, it's a few minutes walk from the mountain and...
