Firstly the good bits the staff are extremely friendly and the breakfast well cooked. We checked in quickly and had room 25 which on entering was freezing cold at 3pm as the heating was off so we plugged in the small oil filled radiator which really isn’t man enough for the size of the room. We then noticed the piece of hard board in the window instead of a glass pane. The room itself was a good size being the dog friendly room. It was time for a leisurely drink in the very nice grill room but a sign at the bar stated no draught beer or larger or bottled beer only bottles of flavoured cider. We decided on coffee to be told by the bar person he had never made coffee before so we drank a strange tasting latte. WiFi is really bad unless you loiter around reception as though your eyeing the place up. The heating was on in our room on our return but went off at 10 and the room soon got cold even with the heater plugged in. Next day we waited for the heating to come on finally it did at 07.30 and we finally warmed up. As stated the breakfast was very good and set us up for the day. On returning we could hear the clink of bottles so a beer delivery? After leaving our freezer of a room again we went into the grill room and the sign had gone so BEER! “No sorry only bottles of I P A “ but as they were only delivered 1 hour ago the bar person hadn’t had time to put them in the fridge. I ordered a G & T and reluctantly a bottle of beer but no one knew the price so off the waiter went to return blank but £4.50 was mentioned I gave a blank expression and a phone call was made to a manager and they agreed £3 . The warm bottle was handed over with a glass which was either still dirty or about 20 years old. Then it was time for food unfortunately due to it being “out of season” their was, from the limited menu no salmon, no muscles, no goats cheese, and no cheese board and the bottle of wine was not in stock “ as it was “the end of the season “ but “ if we had come three weeks before they would have had everything “ The people next to us were told then to watch the leak in the ceiling and we were told we could go to their sister pub the Saracens Head as they had everything great on a wet night . But if they had it all why couldn’t they get some to the Royal Goat? The group of three upped and left as did we to go to another place to eat and the beer was still not in the fridge. We came back to find in our room a can of polish and a duster and a wedged opened fire door . Next morning the heating didn’t come on at all so we had another good early breakfast and checked out. Wha a pity it was like it was the grill room being really nice friendly staff and a great breakfast but as in a previous review it was like faulty towers which believe it or not made us laugh as it was so funny in the end. Unfortunately it was not worth the £278 two nights stay and no mention was made about the hotel having limited stock at this time of year “out of season” A real pity as the staff are great and a great location.

The Royal Goat is in a truly lovely location not too far from Snowdon. It was clearly a smart hotel once, but is now rather dilapidated and in need of a face lift. However it has a lovely comfy feel to it and the staff are really pleasant.
If you have a dog or dogs, then the Goat is perfect as it is is truly dog friendly and you are able to take your dog to most areas of the hotel. There are also plenty of nearby walks to exercise him/her.
Parking is not ideal as it is across the road opposite to the hotel, but as we were staying in the autumn, we didn't have a problem in getting a space.
There is a small lift, which is somewhat scary but is useful if you struggle with stairs. We have stayed at many hotels, with and without our dog, but we were very pleased to find such a nice hotel, where we could very happily take her.

Hmm where to start , I'm here due to work for the weekend walked in and was like walking in to a time warp old fashioned and very dated , was like I was staying in a back street b and b in Blackpool, room again very very dated bit of a fusty smell, bathroom was shower only and was like a tardis plastic walls and plenty of mould on ceiling and walls , one plus side was bed seemed to be clean and was quite comfy , bar down stairs well if you can call it a bar had two local beers on tap and a strongbow pump, can't charge drinks or food to room which was a bit strange very limited food menue, bloke on reception seemed like he didn't want to be there and seemed to be receptionist bar man and waiter,plenty of cobwebs worn carpets and strange stains around , literally was just a bed for the night so if you book here this is my honest opinion lol

I read a lot of reviews before booking this hotel so I was quite prepared for it not being perfect. This hotel is in great need of a considerable investment. The windows are rotting and don’t close properly many of the bathrooms are in need of repair and updating. I asked to change my room as it was not satisfactory and actually ended up moving twice. The staff are very friendly and helpful and do a good job under the conditions. The breakfast is probably the best thing but we tried an evening meal which left a lot to be desired. It’s such a pity as this hotel is in the perfect place for all the walks and of course Snowdon the village is lovely as are the people.
