Hotel Overview

“A national treasure. In the same family since 1947, this delightfully eccentric climbing inn has changed mercifully little over the years and offers simple pleasures in abundance: hearty dinners announced by a gong, plain, old-fashioned but spotless rooms, with fluffy towels and monogrammed linen; homemade lemonade in summer, mulled wine in winter and the warmest of welcomes.”

Why I Love... The Pen-Y-Gwryd Hotel

"Few hotels can boast a better location. It perches alone, halfway up the Pen-y-Pass between the flanks of Snowdon and Gylders ridge. "

Wales Pub Guide: Pen-y-Gwryd Hotel

"The pub is shrouded by high rhododendrons, its solid walls are clad with Virginia creeper and it has a pleasing insouciance. Set in a stunning landscape; it's been a haunt of heroes and offers delicious food and drink. "
