Rooms & Rates
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 clearly see the mountains and the sea from the hotel.
According to Lonely Planet, Criccieth's "main claim to fame is ruined Criccieth Castle", which is "perched up on the clifftop" and has "views stretching along the peninsula's southern coast and across Tremadog Bay to Harlech". The castle, which dates back to the 1230s, is a 10-minute walk from the hotel.
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. The Italianate village was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, whose aunt, Miss Hilda Greaves, once owned the villa.
The hotel's Llewellyn Restaurant was renovated in 2017 and serves British cuisine made using local produce. The restaurant has limited opening times in winter, but food is always available at the bar. Wi-Fi is free.
There will be scaffolding on the hotel from 1-31 January while the windows are replaced.
