Ty Gwyn Hotel

Ty Gwyn Hotel

The Ty Gwyn Hotel situated in Betws-y-coed, at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, is a former coaching Inn dating back to 1636.

Ty Gwyn Hotel is one of the few original coaching Inn′s unspoilt and with traditional features, log fire (when it cold enough), low ceilings, original beams; mind your head and watch your step. Our door is always open.

The Ty Gwyn has been owned & run by the Ratcliffe family for the past 32 years, and Martin (the chef for the 32 years, along with Philip Canning 19 years) and his wife Nicola have now taken over the running of this centuries-old, multi award-winning inn. Ty Gwyn has over the past 6 years undergone a refurbishment. Two of the four poster bedrooms boast spa tubs in their bathrooms. We also have a one bedroom en-suite self catering cottage on the hillside just 20 meters behind the hotel.

The Ty Gwyn has a very good reputation for its food, renowned locally for its international cuisine using the freshest of local produce. Many of the food stuffs are grown and harvested throughout the year in Ty Gwyn′s polytunnels situated in 2 acres adjoining the Ty Gwyn. So you can be assured of high quality, fresh, seasonal produce, in all Ty Gwyn's menus.

Where Possible all our produce is sourced locally; Lambs from Pen Loyn Farm in Llanrwst (4 miles); iron age free range, forest reared pork & suckling pig from Gelli Farm, Capel Garmon (1 mile); Happy Harrison′s free range eggs (Betws-y-Coed); free range goose eggs (Capel Garmon); free range ducks & chickens from Ty Mawr Farm Penmanchno (3 miles); Some local Game i.e. woodpigeon & wild rabbit etc. from Capel Garmon & Penmanchno; fresh lake trout from Llyn Brenig (12 miles); fresh crabs & lobster from Aberdaron. Also from my garden in Capel Garmon I use fresh wild chantarelle mushrooms, and garden herbs, apples, pears, plums, dwarf plums, damsons, redcurrants & blackcurrants & sometimes walnuts (if I can get them before the squirrels).

Telegraph Magazine states Ty Gwyn Hotel is one of the 4 best Cosy Inns 2013

Daily Telegraph's travel magazine “A former coaching inn, it dates from 1636 and is every bit as cosy as it sounds with low-lit dining-rooms and open fires. The inn has a very good restaurant, serving both sophisticated international dishes created from local produce and from the inn's own polytunnels (try the fresh steamed Conwy moules marinière or the pan-fried sirloin of wild boar with thyme-scented roast root vegetables) and 'winter warmer' comfort food – the mushrooms stuffed with vintage mature cheddar are delicious....

Laurence Fox

British actor Laurence Fox - star of ITV's spin-off series Lewis says "best hotel he has ever stayed in..."

When asked on the Telegraph's Heaven and Hell holidays spot. “What was the best hotel you've stayed in?” Internationally travelled Laurence replies “The Ty Gwyn Hotel in Betws-y-Coed. I was there to do some walking and climb up Mount Snowdon. The hotel was really cheap but very characterful. No one ever presented you with a bill for anything until you left. I know that's sort of normal in hotels, but it was particularly nice in this one because it's a pub hotel and you could have snuck out whenever you wanted. It has also got a cracking restaurant. ”
