Clean and tidy with good shared bathroom / kitchen, good for a country setting and local walking. Be sure to try to book wednesday-Sunday as the bar isn't open on Monday and Tuesday and there is nothing else in this town and you will have to drive 10min for food / drinks

A lovely Welsh village dog friendly pub (although closed on Mondays and Tuesdays) with great food (Friday and Saturday nights) and a nice selection of local ales. The locals and owner are very welcoming. They also provide free wifi.

The owners are really helpful, the room was warm and clean. Ours had a low ceiling as we were on the top floor - just something to be aware of! There was plenty of tea and coffee in the bunkroom and I was surprised that milk, bread and a selection of cereals were available in the communal kitchen. The food... More

Wow. We really expected for the price to arrive and either want to leave straight away or just get our heads straight down and leave ASAP in the morning. I was really worried it might be horrific.

Oh my do I love this place! It's in a gorgeous little village in the mountains of Snowdonia, well off the over-touristed path of Betws-y-Coed (Penmachno is about 5 miles down the next valley). It's centrally located to be able to drive to virtually all of north Wales within an hour, and if you love single-tracks over the mountains, it's... More
