For our short breaks and outdoor activities in North Wales and Snowdonia, gr8trails can now recommend our guests stay at the AA3star former coaching Inn, the Royal Oak Hotel, and the local Waterloo Hotel and Lodge, set in the Welsh village of Betws-y-Coed.
Surrounded by the magical Gwydyr Forest at the foot of the Snowdon mountain range, this is a great base for a weekend mountain biking, hill walking, shopping and other activities.
The 2008 Routiers award winning Royal Oak Hotel has 27 well equipped, en-suite, contemporary rooms set in a traditional period design, maintaining the character of the hotels Victorian heritage. After a long day on the hill or for that special occasion you could stay in one of their deluxe 4 poster feature bedrooms or request a Jacuzzi whirlpool bath!
Once you have freshened up from your day out, you can join us in one of the three hotel restaurants. The acclaimed Llugwy River Restaurant, uses the finest Welsh ingredients in it’s extensive a la carte menu. Alternatively, locally sourced food is also available in the Grill Room and Stables Bistro.
For a more contemporary atmosphere the AA3star Waterloo Hotel and Station Leisure Spa offers good quality rooms including all modern conveniences with the added bonus of full membership to the on site Leisure facilities and Spa – great to relax in after a long day out.
Once you are sufficiently relaxed and rested we can join you for evening dinner in Bar 1815, an ideal place to eat, drink and relax.
Whichever style of accommodation suits your pocket, we can guarantee that the owners of both our preferred accommodation partners in Betws will make you feel very welcome to this stunning area and will ensure that you enjoy every minute of your stay with them.
Post dinner, at either location, kick back and relax with your friends, family or group, as the sunsets in the beautiful valley around you and enjoy sharing your experiences of the day, whether that be guided mountain biking, walking or various other activities gr8trails can provide.
Both hotels are located within walking distance of the local train station (3-4 hours travel from either Manchester or London mainline stations). Alternatively, Betws is 5 hours drive from London & under 2 hours from Manchester.
