Stayed for one night in November. We stayed in one of the exterior lodges no 60 - this is a great location as it is the nearest to the main hotel, and not affected by traffic, or rail noise (or any other noise for that matter). It was surprisingly big compared to the main hotel rooms, with a sofa and...

We used the spa, and pool and seeing as it was so cold we used warmed up in the sauna. Didn't manage to join Brian's Tuesday & Thursday circuits,...

Its easy to find on the main road with a good car park. There is lodge accommodation at the back as well as rooms in the main building.

Booked this trough booking.com (not sure if you could get a better deal though). We stayed here for one night as we were going to Zip World. Reception staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. Rooms were ok, not bad, not good. Bed was comfy. We didn't eat here but it's a 3 star and the menu looked good (mid...

Wanted a nice hotel to celebrate a birthday and I definitely picked the right hotel. Excellent staff, got an upgraded room and enjoyed the restaurant very much. Staff were very helpful in creating a birthday experience in the room. Excellent leisure facilities - pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi. Would recommend this hotel for everyone.

We have really fallen in love with Snowdonia this holiday and a large part of that is down to the Waterloo. The food is organic and sourced locally. They have been exceedingly flexible with the 3 of us, a daddy with 2 kids. The swimming pool is nice, gym good and leisure facilities abundant. we stayed in a cosy warming...

My husband and I decided to try the bar for lunch for the first time. It is just outside the main tourist area so quieter with good parking. There was a good choice of food to suit most people ranging from bar snacks, pizzas etc to roast dinners. My husband had the trio of pork and I chose pan fried...
