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.

didn't stay in Hotel as expected, but in small annex which we found to have walls so thin that you could hear running water, flushing toilets and coughing. Bed saggy and bouncy. Stayed at the same time as a coach so bit of a scramble at breakfast and lounge taken over

Only complaint was noise of other guests coming back to room at night , which is not the fault of the hotel . There was a fair amount of water dripping noises from our radiator and corner of room . Other wise everything was spot on .

Main hotel public rooms adequate but dated.
Other Comments
The small room in an outside annexe, an odour and long black hairs in the bed. Spent a very uncomfortable sleepless night. Couldn’t wait to depart and didn’t stay the second night.

Very pleasant staff. Clean rooms with everything you would want. Breakfast buffet style but good choice. We didn't eat there in the evening so cannot comment on the food.

Shame that the coffee at breakfast was instant not real! For a coffee drinker it was disappointing, otherwise great.
