This is why you must not believe all the reviews . The rooms are clean and functional. after that .... forget it. This motel is in the worst area possible. It is down a dirt road and is connected to a derelict building, which I understand as no connection with the motel...except it joined . Absolute nightmare, it looks horrific. The reception is in the pub ( the drift wood ) which is a bit of a local affair. A little jaded if you get what I mean. Unfortunately the rooms look out to a brick wall and the building looks a little like a prison block. I know I sound harsh but I am trying to be honest. We booked for breakfast.... absolutely rubbish don't bother!!!! The breakfast menu said " continental " which amount to toast and cereal . There was nothing else on offer. I had a bacon and egg sandwich which was poor to say the best. £172 with breakfast. although we had one breakfast deducted as we complained. For two rooms for one night. There were three adults in our party. There are far better places to stop in this area, in fact it hard to think of worse any where. I understand that the owner have no control over there adjoining building. but seriously you need to take legal action against the owner of this monstrosity as it is dragging your business down. Or get the council involved to sort it out. I will never stop here again and advice people to seriously look into this place before booking. Don't was your hard earned money unless you want to stop on a dump site. Sorry but it true.

TheBeachMotel, Owner at The Beach Motel, responded to this reviewResponded 6 July 2017

Whilst we appreciate feedback and understand that our accommodation will not necessarily meet all personal preferences, there are some points in your review that we would like to respond to:

The Beach Motel is located in the heart of Trearddur Bay and is only 200 yards away from the main blue flag beach in the village. We do not advertise sea views (which is reflected in our pricing) and we have a free carpark for guests next to the accommodation. Therefore we feel your comment “this motel is in the worst possible area” is misleading.

To suggest our property is located “down a dirt road” is simply not true. The motel is located at the end of a tarmac road. There is a derelict building next to our property which is in the process of being knocked down. Historically our property and the this building were part of a large hotel which is why they are connected. We sympathise that it is indeed an eyesore and a shared frustration, however, as we do not own the building we have limited options over its appearance. We do have an ongoing dialogue with the building owners and understand they are currently working with the local council to safely demolish the building. We apologise for any distress caused.

The motel has the appearance of a motel, hence the name. We have exterior photos of the rooms on our website so we would assume that you would have been aware of the layout & appearance of the building prior to booking. The reception is located in The Driftwood bar & restaurants and whilst this is generally not an issue to guests, we will certainly take your comments on board.

The ‘Continental Breakfast’ includes a selection of cereals, toast, yoghurt, fruits, porridge and pastries. The breakfast bar is self-service and whilst the staff do replenish breakfast items throughout the morning where necessary, most guests will simply ask a member of staff if something has run out.

We are a small, family run business with a hard working team of staff. We offer clean, comfortable and modern accommodation close to the beach. Our team work tirelessly to ensure our guests have an enjoyable stay but we do not always get it right and do appreciate feedback.

Kind Regards
The Beach Motel

Stayed here for one night with my daughter whilst spending a weekend in Anglesey. Driving up to the motel was a bit of a disappointment as there is a dilapidated building right next door, however we couldn't fault the room as it was spotlessly clean and modern. The spa bath was a surprise and the bathroom was immaculate. Had an excellent night's sleep in the comfy bed and our only disappointment was the quality of the breakfast which was a little poor.

As other reviewers have said - try to look past the outside appearance because the location is perfect for exploring Trearddur Bay and the surrounding areas. The staff are super helpful and friendly. The car park is a great added bonus. The rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The only reason I have knocked off one star is because I would recommend that if you are a light sleeper you take ear plugs and an eye mask because the outside stairs to the motel are rather noisy during the night when people make their way up and down and although the rooms are fitted with blackout blinds AND curtains the sunrise still seeps in.

Having said that... without a doubt we would stay here again the next time we visit this area.

It really is an unpromising approach: down a side street, across two rather bleak, gravel car parks and placed between the drab Anglican church hall and the exceedingly modest Beach Golf Club port-a-cabin, but worst of all, beside the burnt out snooker hall. The reception, bar and restaurant are in the main building. The 15 guest rooms (with no view) are in an adjacent block on 3 floors with access using an outside metal fire escape style stair.

However, persist. The rooms are fine, are spotlessly clean and are a good size. They have comfortable beds, jacuzzi baths, tea/coffee facilities, iron & board but no fridge. There is good wifi in both guest rooms and public areas, although the latter are rather tired looking. The dinner menu is adequately extensive, reasonably priced and of satisfactory quality. Breakfast is extra, fairly standard and the cooked breakfast is substantial.

Undoubtedly it is better than it appears at first glance.

We stayed here for 1 night last minute as visiting family near by. For the £60pn it delivered what we needed and that was a bed for the night.
Rooms were spacious and clean, beds small and sound transfer was an issue for us in room 104.
The rooms are a chalet style and open onto the main metal staircase which as you can imagine is noisy when in use, the rooms look over the main entrance to the bar/restaurant and the smoking area is located just underneath so not the place for a tranquil stay.
Parking was free and plenty full and there's a 9 hole golf course next door. Location wise it's great short walk to the local shops and pubs:/restaurants and the beach.

All in all if your looking for a bed for a night and are not fussed about nice views and a peaceful sleep then it delivers at a good price.
