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 Llewelyn Restaurant is closed November-March, but food is available in the Mane Place Bar. The bar serves British cuisine made using local produce and a Sunday carvery is served throughout the year.

Some bedrooms are in the Castle View Cottage annex -- a former stable block of the old coaching inn.

Hotel situated in a nice location close to all facilities - beach, castle, and shops. Also close to other areas like Porthmadog, and Pwllheli for shopping trips by car. For a nice relaxing break by the beach without hustle or bustle recommended.
