Good Hotel Guide Review
At the foot of Snowdonia, the Pullees’ ‘eccentric’ hotel is run by the same family who hosted Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay as they trained to climb Everest, and not a lot has changed since. Built in 1810, the farmhouse-turned-coaching inn retains the spirit of a mountaineers’ hostel. Wi-Fi has found its way into the common areas, TV into some bedrooms, though not all have an en suite bathroom. The compensations are many, not least the beautiful surroundings and the hotel’s own swimming lake, sauna and chapel. Lounge about in three snugs, with a reliquary of Everest memorabilia, a dartboard and table tennis. Breakfast is ‘hearty’. In the evening, when the gong sounds, head to the dining room and a sustaining set dinner.
