I stayed 4 nights at the gorgeous Victorian Princes Arms Hotel. The room was excellent, bathed in light with plenty of space, a comfortable memory foam bed and a country-style bath. It was the details that really made it special: little things like a wardrobe with clothing labels for each shelf, a beauty case, a tray with biscuits and choice...

We visited the hotel in September and were very impressed! The location is beautiful and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Lindsay and Anne are exceptional hosts who went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We would highly recommend it to anyone! Will definitely be coming back next year

The views from the bedroom windows are magnificent, looking over the Conway valley and beyond. On arrival the welcome is warm and genuine. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. The rooms might be a bit dated but are very comfortable.The en-suite bathroom was spotless. Breakfast and dinner are first class. I would have no hesitation in staying again.

We returned to the Conwy Valley for our annual end of season treat. It is so relaxing to stay at the Princes Arms and enjoy the hospitality of Lindsay and Ann. The views over the valley are spectacular and the food is great. We look forward to returning next year.
