8/10 Very Good

Value for money
The room was basic but clen and well equipped enough for the value. We booked to stay one night before climbing Mount Snowdon and my only criticism is our room was above the bar area and it was quite loud due to people drinking and shouting, which made sleeping a bit difficult.

6/10 Good

There was no parking and upon arriving at 9pm we thought parking was available accross the road, after speaking with the car parking attendent we found out you had to book a space to park costing £40 for overnight and it wasnt available until 1am, had to park in a layby and get taxis to and from the property. Turned out to be a much more expensive trip than originally planned for.
