“Great Place to find ” 'We booked short break with my wife and 14year old son camping. Easy to find stunning location warm welcome on arrival. Due to the great British wether we could not cook outside the tent. We had exceptional food and service in the bar next to campsite. Clean and good facilities'

“Great base for touring Snowdonia” 'Good location on the A5 for visiting local beauty spots and attractions. We are National Trust members and visited Bodnant Gardens and Penrhiw Castle, both easily drivable. As for the site itself, it suited us fine, grass pitch, only 6 pitches in field, ehu, showers and toilets - not the best we have come across, but For £18.50 per night, it was satisfactory for us. The pub on site was very nice with good food, you can even get a cooked breakfast there if you want!'

'Great weekend, very clean camp site, the pub/restraunt was exceptional fantastic food. The dogs loved it we will return very soon. The only draw back was at the weekend the pub hours could have opened a few hours early..'

Dont have any problem offering a top rating as it was all we could have wanted. All staff were very helpfull. When we are next down we know where to stay.'

“Family Camping Weekend & Walking up Snowdon” 'My wife & I arrived early Saturday morning my eldest daughter went up on the Friday with her sisters, Giler Arms is a very nice camp site with & with out electric, We got set up and had a nice walk round the area, had the full english breakfast on Sunday which was really good nice friendly staff then we went to walk up Mount Snowdon got back just after 9pm with fish & chips site was really quiet which was nice. Site toilets were very good a bit cramped though daughter said the showers were really good only thing i would want is somewhere to wash your pots we had a washing up bowl with us but most sites do have somewhere to wash up other than that very good site i would recommend'

We are in the process of providing a pot wash area for campers which will be finished for next season. Although rural, we are quite central for most of North Wales' attractions and with the stunning surrounding scenery we feel we are very spoilt. We hope to see you again in the future.'

'this was our third visit to this pleasant campsite, and apart from the weather we totally enjoyed our stay. The pub serves great meals and we took advantage of this on a few occasions. Being a free house they also have a number of locally brewed beers and lagers, which we also took advantage of. All in all it was a great stay and I would definitely stay again.'

Made to feel welcome from the start. The only downside would be if they become very busy on the pitches with limited showers. Would definitely return in future'

The field although sloping wasnt too bad and we had a great stay. The food in the bar was excellent and reasonably priced. They had a selection of local craft beers which were good. Would i stay there again.... Without doubt. Many thanks for a great time Y Giler Arms'

Excellent price of just £6 Field had plenty of room and flat grass Good showers with a proper electric shower and lots of space Pub was friendly and owners pleasant, did me a nice steak pie even though i was a bit late. Good location as long as you dont want shops close by. I didn't. My phone signal worked fine for a weather update.'

The Y Giler Arms have amazing staff that give top notch service! Delicious food and fantastic drink prices. I would without a doubt visit this establishment again. My best friend and I spent 4 days there for a girls trip and although remote it was perfect. The beautiful welsh rolling hills and the quaint dog friendly bar area really made the trip. The local people were friendly and we had many laughs over the pool table! I would highly recommend visiting!

“Great food, good value, recommended.”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 2 weeks ago
Our party of four adults, three children and our dog met here for a meal having booked earlier in the day. Because of the dog we were confined to the bar area which is in need of some redecorating but is perfectly comfortable. Warm welcome and great service from friendly staff. The food was very good - I had the lamb shank which was delicious - and would have given it a five star rating but for the non availability of fresh vegetables when we visited, however I understand it was a Monday night after a busy weekend.
