Why We Love This Hotel

  • The 18th-century Lion Hotel is in the town of Criccieth on the Llŷn Peninsula, a 5-minute walk from 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 13th century, 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
  • The Llŷn Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty occupies more than three quarters of the peninsula. There are walking and cycling routes to explore, secluded beaches to visit, a number of small fishing villages, and 70 miles of coastline
  • 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 drive away. This Italianate village was designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis
  • The property's Mane Place bar is open for drinks 3-11pm Friday-Sunday and 5-11pm Monday-Thursday

Lovely time at this hotel. Staff were welcoming and helpful and sorted out any problems swiftly and without fuss.

The breakfast was very good with lots of choice with wonderful poached eggs on request. We had dinner there on the first evening but the dining room lacks ambience. It would make a huge difference if the evening dining area was sectioned off and updated with modern and colourful dining furniture to look welcoming and jolly. Dinner was not great with over cooked vegetables and uninspiring salmon.

Pity the Lion doesn't welcome non residents at the moment. Lacked a bit of atmosphere due to this.

An old but very cosy hotel. The room was small but adequate. Comfy bed, everything spotlessly clean. Only downside was the very small TV. Excellent breakfasts, lots of choice, freshly prepared. Staff were welcoming and pleasant.

We had a lovely stay. There are some covid restrictions in Wales, so needed to wear masks again in the hotel, but it did not spoil a really nice stay.

A clean and tidy hotel. Nice lounge /bar area, Breakfast was a buffet style and very good. Waiting and reception staff were friendly and helpful. Room was a reasonable size and was very clean. Probably an ideal hotel for walkers. In all, a good stay .

Asked for a twin room with sea view and we got it. Good value for bed and breakfast. Food at dinner was just about ok, menu not changed much over the 4 days and food was pretty mediocre. Room not serviced during our stay, we could request extra tea, coffee, milk etc and request a change of towels. Did expect room to be serviced though.
