Nice little remote pub with friendly staff and locals. Had dinner, which was good and breakfast was very good. Room was fine with an en suite shower and toilet, flat screen tv and tea and coffee facilities. Beds were comfortable enough. No complaints. Good base to explore north Wales.

Was not expecting much for the price but i cannot fault the place. It's essentially a pub with rooms, lot's of locals there, so can't be bad. Good value for money, room was clean, bed was good and everything in the bathroom worked. Food was the usual pub grub, nothing special, but good and reasonable portions. Breakfast was ok, but...

I stayed here for one night with my daughter and mother in law. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and kind. Everything was very well organised. Obviously they're all a good team. The only downside was that our rooms ( I think ) were above the kitchen and the door opening and closing during the time they were tidying...

Loved my stay at the inn. Staff were wonderful, cheery and very helpful. Room was clean, warm, and a lovely view of the surrounding countryside. Food was comforting in the cold weather. Looking forward to visiting again one day.

Arrived to find our rooms were wrong - were put on hold for the longest 20 mins (more like an hour) while they moved someone out! I would have rather them cancel and we could have moved on elsewhere or slept in the car... Granted they gave us a drink on the house but small recompense - I think I...

Lost in northern Wales trying to find an inn. Glan Yr Afon we're glad to have us at a reasonable price for a twin room. Great pub with a lot of people going in different directions, full English breakfast and cereal for when we got up. Came with a great en suite aswell

Stayed 3 nights very quaint and quiet, room was fine fully serviced with tea, coffee and biscuits, plenty shampoo etc., in the en-suite bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and the meals on an evening were worth the money. Staff were excellent, disabled access is possible but I would check first as to what degree because the actual pub area is typically...

The room was nice but the bathroom was a bit cramped. Also the fire exit light was bright lit up green and kept the room light all night and so it was nearly impossible to get barely a wink of sleep. Then again, it's always good to know where to go in a fire. Breakfast was yummy but the order...
