Had a great weekend at Craig-y-don with my family friendly staff great entertainment and a chance to make new friends. Food is quite nice beds are nice and comfy. Rooms are quite standard but if you get a sea view and you like watching the sun go down then this is for you.

How 3 people was meant to sleep In the room we were allocated is beyond me ... however this hotel is IMMACULATELY CLEAN! & the food was lovely The male on reception was quite an indifferent person whilst the girls were lovely and polite ... overall the size of the room made it quite uncomfortable but we enjoyed our stay
