We come quite often to this establishment to celebrate various occasions. Birthdays, graduations, and most recently our Silver Wedding anniversary. We booked the same room that we had 25 years ago but it has now had an upgrade with a hot tub on the balcony. Oh how amazing is this. This is possibly the very best room in the whole...

We stayed at the hotel for two nights over a weekend and couldn't fault the staff or service. Everyone on the front desk, bar & restaurant we're professional, polite & nothing was too much trouble. Sam in particular was extremely helpful along with Robert in the bar and the waiting staff in the restaurant. Our evening meal was superbly cooked...

It's a sad but true fact that many country house hotels in lovely areas of Britain turn out to be disappointing. Not, I am pleased to say, this one. If there is a more gorgeous valley in Wales than the vale of Betws-y-Coed, I haven't been there. The big peaks of Snowdonia are almost on the doorstep, but the prospect...

having just returned from our weekend stay, we would certainly recommend the hotel. Set in beautiful grounds overlooking the river, we stayed in a superior river view room. The room was large, clean and comfortable, with a balcony. The hotel is dog friendly, we took our Spaniel with us, and were made to feel very welcome, whenever we sat down...

Help ! please apply immediately - Maitre d' required to bring some badly needed expertise to a Hotel that has very willing and friendly staff, but lacks a management overview and attention to detail. We had a lovely 'river view room', spacious, beautiful view, all that was required. We stayed for 3 nights over the Easter weekend. The young New...

We sincerely apologise about the service you received during your meal at the Hotel and you are right to make the comments you have made. Unfortunately we recently tragically lost our Restaurant manager and though we have employed an outstanding replacement, she was unable to start work until this week. This is no excuse for the service you received, we...

This delightful hotel is in the most amazing location and the views from the dining room are awesome. Close to Betws-y-Coed but quiet and secluded it is definitely worth a stay. The staff were most helpful, the evening meals excellent and clearly used a lot of home grown and even home smoked ingredients and the whole hotel was absolutely spotless....

We stayed at The Riverside Hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary in a location we wanted to use as a base for exploring the area on foot.

Myself and my partner visited for valentines and the food was delicious, would highly recommend this hotel to anyone! Friendly staff, would do anything to help especially Gill who was really helpful and an excellent waitress! I would recommend you try the Beef Wellington - believe me you will not be disappointed! Cannot wait to visit again :)
