Enjoy a trip to the North-West of Wales to enjoy the delights that it has to offer, including puffins, trains and interesting visits to towns and the coast for the welsh summer.
Situated on the village green in Criccieth, commanding magnificent views of Cardigan Bay, the Lion Hotel has been developed and extended from an Olde inn, into the hotel it is today. The hotel offers a unique blend of personal service, friendliness, comfort and hospitality. Facilities include a relaxing lounge bar and a newly renovated restaurant.
