Criccieth is a beautiful seaside resort town on Cardigan Bay, the Southern side of the Llyn Peninsula. Known as the ‘Pearl of Wales on the Shores of Snowdonia’, this attractive Victorian seaside resort is popular with tourists for its fantastic beaches and its traditional Welsh charm.

Overlooking the town on its headland stands the remains of the 13th century Criccieth Castle. The origin of the name ‘Criccieth’ has been disputed over the years, but many believe it is a reference to welsh words ‘crug caeth’. These words translate to ‘hill captives’ - the hill on which the castle was built was once used as a jail’

Lion Hotel

Situated in Gwynedd, North Wales. Criccieth is a small town, but its compactness makes it an attractive resort.

All streets lead to the castle, or at least seem to have a castle view. But if it’s not the castle at the end of the street, then it’s the sea!

There are fantastic sea views either west toward the Llyn peninsula, east toward Snowdonia and  Porthmadog, or across Cardigan Bay, toward Harlech and its very own medieval castle.

The elegant bedrooms, each have a flatscreen TV and tea/coffee facilities. All rooms have colourful decor and a private bathroom and some have scenic views or antique furniture.
