My husband's 65th birthday prompted me to take him away for a few days. Bedgellert is a lovely village and the surrounding scenery wonderful. The hotel is a little tired but the breakfast was excellent. All staff spoken to were very professional and helpful. Our room was fine for a short stay. We had a problem with a lack of... More

Lunch menu was limited but the slow braised Welsh beef and Welsh beef beef burger were really lovely.followed up with carrot cake and jaffa cake icecream was quite a different... More

Bedgellert was super busy as can be expected on Easter Sunday so we missed out on a proper Sunday roast but we weren't disappointed with the Easter Sunday dinner menu! Absolutely delicious and fabulous service from the staff in the restaurant! Will definitely go back here on a return trip to Bedgellert!

We were staying at the Royal Goat Hotel for 3 nights but had booked dinner at different places, the last night we hadn’t booked anywhere and we decided to eat in the hotel restaurant. We were offered the daily 3 course meal option plus there were bar meals that you could also order. The menu seemed rather posh for a... More

We popped in for a drink and to look at the menu for dinner; despite there not being anybody else in the bar, the service was slow, with only one staff member serving. The beer was limited, as not everything was available. The setting was nice and plenty of seating.

The worst hotel in United Kingdom I have been to in all my travels. I can not even call it a hotel- politely put- dump hole. My friends booked a room for 1 night stay. We arrived to he hotel quite late, it was after 11pm, by that time reception was closed, they left our room keys in the pigeon... More

Dropped in for a couple of drinks with the dogs after a very wet walk. Staff very welcoming and a very warm atmosphere having only very recently re-opened. Very busy bar but was surprised at the attitude of one member of staff when asked by another guest for the internet logon. If I was paying the tariff for a nights... More

Having studied an interesting menu outside, we went in. We came across what appeared to be a chef having a chat with another man; we tried to make contact, but neither of them acknowledged us. The bar seemed to have nobody on duty, and the rest of the ground floor looked as if it had been deserted. After wasting a... More
