An extremely good hotel with excellent accommodation, friendly, helpful staff and great food. The hotel is very well situated in the village of Beddgelert with fantastic views of the Snowdonia national park. Our room was beautifully refurbished and very nicely decorated with a modern, rustic feel; bathroom was particularly spacious and well appointed. Breakfast and dinner were really excellent. Thanks...

We stayed at the Saracens Head for one night after walking up Snowdon. The deluxe double room we stayed in was beautiful with really lovely views out the window. The room was huge and the bed very comfy, had a nice selection of teas, coffees and biscuits and the decoration in the room was really homely (I always think this... More

Just about perfect location for Snowdon and other walks. Not fat to Portmeirion or Conway and easy access to the rest of Snowdonia although roads can be tight and lack of signage can be irritating- take your satnav. Hotel was very clean,rooms excellent and staff very friendly and helpful. An excellent hotel in a fabulous location.

As a couple whose dogs are an enormous part of our family it was a delight to stay at The Saracens Head. The room was large, the bed was unbelievably comfortable and the welcome was as warm... More

Mu husband and I, along with our two little dogs visited The Saracens today. We were greeted by a very friendly, polite and efficient young lady. The food and drink were excellent, the establishment was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Many places claim to be "dog friendly " but turn out to be merely dog tolerant. The Saracens however welcomed... More

Room was clean and tidy, however the maid had forgotten to give us clean mugs (oops!). Nonetheless, the food was delicious, may not be suitable for people who aren't dog lovers as dogs were frequently barking in the restaurant. Also, the wifi does not work in the rooms, only in the reception area. The staff at the hotel definitely go... More

Lovely clean quiet room, fab food and wine and great service. Staff can't do enough for you, they even made us breakfast a little earlier so we could get away to climb Snowden. Good shops and amenities nearby and there is of course the wonderful scenery at Snowdonia National Park. Will be returning - thank you!

We booked two nights at short notice. The rates were very reasonable and breakfast was included. I could not have been happier with my stay. The hotel was welcoming, the room was very well presented, the staff could not have been more helpful and the food was outstanding. Beddgelert was breathtakingley beautiful. I can wait to go back.
