  • Criccieth Beach, which has a Blue Flag, is five minutes' walk away
  • 13th-century Criccieth Castle is a 10-minute walk from the hotel

"Such an excellent hotel. The food at both breakfast and the pub/restaurant was exceptional a real suprise. The rooms were lovely, we had a family room which rather than the standard extra bed in the room was a separate second bedroom. The staff were super friendly too, just a lovely experience all round and great value for money"

Overview

The 18th-century Lion Hotel Criccieth is on the Llŷn Peninsula, a 5-minute walk from the Blue Flag-awarded Criccieth Beach and 15 minutes' drive from Snowdonia National Park -- you can see the mountains and the sea from the hotel.

Criccieth Castle, which dates back to the 1230s, is a 10-minute walk from the hotel. Its ruins are perched on a cliff and offer views along the southern coast of the peninsula and over to Harlech.

Frommer's describes Criccieth as one of the "best towns on the peninsula", due to its location; the harbour town of Porthmadog is a 10-minute drive away and marks the start of the 91-mile Llŷn Coastal Path, which runs around the peninsula to Caernarfon. 

Portmeirion, made famous in the TV series "The Prisoner", is 20 minutes away. This Italianate village was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis.

The bar serves British cuisine made using local produce. Wi-Fi is free.

Very polite, friendly, helpful staff. Lovely room, nicely decorated & with a huge bathroom - bath & separate shower. Breakfast was very good, with lots of choice.

We stayed in Room 28, which has clearly been recently renovated. Our only criticisms are that the shower head was tiny, with poor water pressure & the temperature was difficult to control. Also, having the bedroom window open meant having to hear, & smell, the smoking area below.

Old fashioned hotel, our room rather small and out of the main hotel but warm! Staff seemed a bit preoccupied with a visiting coach party, but when approached later were happy to discuss any issues.

We had lovely break at The Lion Hotel our only critisism was our dissapointment that the main dining room was not open on Sunday evening and we were offered to sit in the bar area which was zero ambience for us.The food was also not good and after mentioning to the waitress who apolgised we were dissapointed that no one followed this up.The breakfast was very nice.
