We stayed here on golf trip - and the hotel was a very good base. The hotel was very flexible and obliging in meeting our needs - e.g. early breakfast some days and later dinner on others. Food in the restaurant was good, nicely cooked and tasty. Excellent breakfast! Bar was well staffed with a good range of beers, including... More

The hotel parking is excellent and convenient. As the organiser I was greeted by Joanne on arrival and received a very helpful briefing on the various dining options in Harlech. In fact... More

With some variable reviews, I wasn't expecting much so I was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by the charming landlady who showed me a perfectly nice room. Sadly it was downhill from there. There was a cloying smell of nasty air freshener, I found the offending item and threw it in the wardrobe so I could breathe. Next shock was... More

Our one night stay here was so convenient. Easy parking on site, friendly pub to relax, delicious dinners in the restaurant, large clean rooms to retire to, good breakfasts to wake up to, friendly people to encounter, and good prices as well. One stop shopping!

We were made to feel very welcome. Evening meal and breakfast were both good and we slept well. The proprietors were accommodating towards food preferences. We had a very pleasant potter around Harlech the next day. Lovely.

Staff were friendly and attentive. Willing to do early breakfast and cater for food intolerances. Room was clean, comfy and breakfast excellent standard with local meat. TV was a bit small and free wifi patchy.

Called in for an evening meal, we've eaten here before and know the food is good. Only 4 of us in the bar and 6 in the restaurant but they could not accommodate us for an evening meal. Couldn't even make us a sandwich or a bowl of soup. Moral of the story......book ahead and don't bother coming out of... More
