Went in for a meal, although we have stayed here before. Still a good choice of meals and good food served. We went on a particularly wet and windy day in December so it was good to get a warm and good food.

Stayed for one night, room was comfortable but the place does probably need a little bit of an update I feel. I went for the 2 course evening meal at £8.99 which really for the price you can’t complain. I had the garlic mushrooms on crostini for starters. The mushrooms came in a

The rooms are really lovely, comfy beds. Had a couple problems with the shower, but that was nothing really and when we told them they moved us to a different room.
The food is FANTASTIC. Just a lovely place to stay.

Definitely want to come again. Recommend to anyone

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, first of all i would like to verify few points, 1- the order wouldn't have been mixed up if we were given the right table number. 2- it is a half term so we are just a little bit busier than usual. 3- all our guests were told about the waiting time. 4- may be the restaurant looked empty however we have a restaurant area , bar are , beer garden , balcony and front seating are. 5- diet coke and coke zero are not full fat coke it is a different type of auger in them.

You are welcome to leave your vehicles in this car park overnight if needed, however the spaces are limited in peak seasons. Hope this helps. Many thanks

Have booked for one night 06/05/2017. Can you hive me directions to where we should park the car. Diolch Sian
There is a free car park just to the left just past the Monachty but it is very popular. If you take the first right after this car park you will get to a large, pay car park.where there is always room. This car park is free if you have disability tax exemtion and a blur badge. Hope that helps
