Great all-rounder of a pub. Decent beers at a decent price (Conwy Brewery ‘Beachcomber’ £3.60/pint), really friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere. Pub grub menu available, good sized portions and well prepared meals. Well maintained, furnished to a high standard.

Brilliant hotel. There for 2 nights. Room spotless. Staff really friendly. Lovely atmosphere. Breakfast superb. Had a meal at night there. Lovely food. Could not fault it at all. It was so good booked 3 stays of 2 nights there later in the year. Would...highly recommend this hotel. It is well situated near all things we wanted to see. Fantastic. Would only go to this hotel in Barmouth. Would never stay anywhere else. It is so nice and they really make you welcome.... Well done to all the staff you all work extremely hard.More

The Royal is what pubs with rooms used to be, loads of character, friendly staff, clean and comfortable, and a cracking breakfast to boot.

Very good value for money meals. Steak and ale pie was the best I've ever had. Amazing amount of steak and good quality meat. Scampi and chips for the ladies was tasty and plentiful. Very busy. Majority were eating dinner, not just drinking. Rather disappointed...in the place itself, which was not attractive or appealing, but staff were cheerful and friendly and drinks were reasonably priced. Toilets were a huge let down. Not enough to meet the demands of the customers. Overall - great for an enjoyable bar meal .More

Being a fussy person and my husband going on about how nice the food looked in the royal last time he was there having a pint we tried here. All the food coming out looked so nice and homemade. Positives 1. Very reasonable. In fact...I would say brilliant prices 2. Loads of meat in our pies (we had 3 steal and ale). It was tasty and again homemade with huge chips. My Son wanted new potatoes which looked lovely 3. Staff friendly 4. Quick service We are coming again next week. For sure this is going to be our new local (30 min away) Now for the negative 1. Can't come back today as I have chicken that needs cooking!! Thanks for a awsome mealMore

We took our dogs; service was good. I had salmon salad; salmon slightly dry but it was good overall. Husband had a chicken burger with very nice coleslaw. Prices pretty good. All in all, a pleasant meal.

It is good that they encourage people with dogs but perhaps a few too many on this occasion. Popped in on spec for early dinner, ordered the steaks which were done correctly but the whole meal was only Luke warm, Chips were only warm. The...onion rings were not cooked inside and hard and green. There was a pepper salad on the plate which not stated on the menu. Not the best first impression but I can image there are not that many places to go in barmouth.More

The hotel and bar areas are I would say quirky and really nice . Our room no 7 was very good indeed, very spacious and very well equipped. The decor was lovely and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was very spacious and spotless ....In the room was everything you needed and more, bottled water and a fridge 👍. No car parking but the agreement they have with a local car garage at £5 for 24hrs was great and only 100’yards or so away. The staff were great and the food and drink on offer was really good at a very reasonable price . Breakfast was the star of the show , the wife said “best breakfast ever in a hotel “ You choose the night before but the choices are great . It was all hot fresh and lovely 👏👏👏. Will definitely be backMore

We have just arrived back from a 2 night stay here. The room was lovely. Very spacious, had everything you need, and had a lovely vintage feel to it. All the furniture was quite old style, and everywhere was spotlessly clean. The bathroom felt new,...but still had that vintage theme to match the bedroom. On the day of arrival, we had the Sunday Roast which was nice, but nothing could prepare us for the breakfast. They ask that you pre-order the day before if possible, but wasn't a necessity. You can literally have whatever you want. We both said that this was quite possibly the best breakfast we have ever had in a hotel....ever! Beautifully cooked, piping hot, and absolutely delicious. The granola was amazing! Finally, the Staff.....absolutely every member of staff we came in to contact with, was friendly and efficient, and made us feel so welcome. We've already told some friends, and we all plan on coming back later in the year!More

What a find! For a very reasonable price, we were really impressed by the facilities. Huge room, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bathroom had a huge shower and we loved the tiling. The room had nice toiletries, teas and coffees and other nice extras...like a fridge and a tray for wet shoes or boots. The room was also very clean, dog friendly, but you would never know a dog had been in the room. We bought a dog and found the whole place very Dog friendly. Our room was above the bar, it was a Tuesday night so perhaps not very busy, but we weren't disturbed at all by noise. Breakfast was well cooked and tasty and we ate in the pub for an evening meal - again good pub food, for a reasonable price. All the staff we met were very friendly and accommodating. Finally, we loved Barmouth. A lovely beach, cute shops and fantastic views over the mountains. The hotel is located close to all the amenities and despite not having a car park, the car park we were advised to use was just a short walk away. Overall, a fantastic stay and we wish we'd had longer.More
