Parking - yes there is parking around. But when a hotel says they have parking you assume they have their own parking.
There is a free lay-by outside - if you manage to get there when a space is there. And it's a free car park to the rear between 6.00pm and 10.00am.
Food - options are a little limited for a veggie, I had a jacket potato and it was so gritty it was hard to eat. We tried to eat out in other locations everyday if you get back to Blaenau Ffestiniog your limited to take aways, co-op, mc colls, or there is a lovely sit in chip shop over the road.
Room - 'cleaned' every other day. This involved changing the bins.
Could really do with a towel change, fresh tea cups, a made bed and a good vacuum. Which I could only see being used in the hall ways. The bathroom needs a good clean inbetween guests. Just to remove previous stays hairs and the mould around the taps. It's looking a little tired with cracked sinks and stained baths.
Reminded me of staying in a grand parents house - a little old and worn but it was comfortable.
I could also hear everything is the next room along, I think they were generally very noisy people anyway. But a little sound proofing would be lovely!
Especially when they want to go to the loo and blow their nose in the night.
Staff - were very limited but were helpful!
Location - lovely and pretty much an hour drive to everywhere we visited (Menai Strait - Ribride, Zip Wire - Velocity, Pen Y Pass - Snowdon, Llanberis / Electric Mountain, Portmeirion - Mediterranean Village)
Room - good size lots of space to put our things and still move about the room.
Breakfast - buffet with fruit, toast, cereals, tea, coffee and juices. You can also order any cooked breakfast or just a couple of cooked items like scrambled egg or mushrooms.
(Veggie breakfast available too - however not a big morning eater so didn't get around to trying it)
Close to a Co-op, Mc Colls and a eat in chip shop over the road. Good for picking up the next day's snacks for on the move.
Although we didn't use it the train station with a lovely steam train is located to the rear. It's quiet so no need to worry about noise.
