THE KINMEL ARMS AWARDS
We’re just a little bit proud!
Great Dinner with a Friendly Welcome
“Took the family for a weekday dinner. Warm welcome, toasty fire and a fine selection of drinks. A big bowl a fantastic Menai muscles to share as a starter while the vegetarian daughter had a great mushroom starter. A variety of mains from Ribeye steak (rare and superb) to a ladies size fish and chips (still substantial), all were excellent..” Dec 2016
New Year’s Eve
“Well we’re back @ The Kinmel Arms….! It was hard to resist the temptation of booking this great venue for our New Year’s Eve soirée!!!We were not to be disappointed yet again every thing was perfect! The seven course meal started @ 7.00pm with Champagne & canapés which were delicious as were the next six courses!! As usual Tim’s Wine Flight was exquisite, perfectly complimenting each dish!! Chad the head chef pulled out all the stops and everything from menu planning, the dishes & execution were spot on!! As usual Tim & Lynne were the perfect hosts always seeming in control but having time for chit chat through the course of the evening!!” Jan 2017
Yummy Afternoon Tea
“Wonderful afternoon tea. The staff are friendly and helpful. There was a choice of different teas to drink, Sandwiches, savoury tart and delicious cakes. We will definitely visit again.” Dec 2016
Stunning, relaxing ….you HAVE to do it!
“We have eaten many times here as the place is literally 3 miles from our house, and every time we have had the best eating and drinking experience it is possible to imagine. What we had never done though, obviously due to how close to home it is, is to stay the night. So last Friday, as a treat because we were both working on New Year’s Eve, we stayed. This is the brilliance of what Tim and Lynn, along with their fantastic, professional, friendly staff have created here – we could just as easily have been 300 miles from home, it was SO relaxing ! The food is truly special, beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and all locally sourced top quality produce. Tim or Lynn are always on hand to sit with you and explain certain menu choices, incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Our room, ‘Driftwood’ was lovely, the stand out feature for us being a VERY spacious free standing bath…..
There are some lovely walks around the location (Tim has walking maps he can let you use to get the best from that experience) and we found the whole experience incredibly relaxing” Stayed Dec 2016
“Excellent food! Had the fish & chips and I can honestly say it’s the best I’ve ever had and I’m very critical! Second time I’ve been here in a week , worth coming back too !!! was here on day after Boxing Day and it was full to the rafters , this did not affect service or food , atmosphere was brilliant” Stayed Dec 2016
Excellent accommodation, very friendly & superb food
“Had a lovely overnight stay and superb evening meal. Would definitely stay again. Love the breakfast arrangements as you can take your time. Only slight negative is that you can’t reach the shampoo & conditioner when relaxing in the bath.” Stayed Dec 2016
Delightful afternoon tea
“As we just missed lunch service following a walk on the beach we had to “settle” for afternoon tea. Arriving slightly disheveled and with our dog the team could not have been more welcoming – such a relief as anyone with a dog will know. We settled into a sofa by the log fire and selected the savoury afternoon tea menu rather than the sweet option. Choosing which of the many available loose tea options was made easier as our host talked through each tea in turn. Our individual three tiered food platters (I am sure they have a proper name which is not that) arrived shortly after our preferred tea and we were delighted. Every element from the local cheese, finger sandwich, scone and Viennese biscuit topped mince pie was delicious. When we couldn’t finish it all, in spite of having missed lunch and being very hungry, the team boxed up our left overs for the homeward journey. From the genuinely warm welcome to the delicious fare everything was perfect and even at £20 a head felt like great value. Needless to say we are planning a return visit.” Stayed Dec 2016
Gorgeous hotel with amazing staff
“I stayed here for a business trip, as soon as we arrived the staff were very accommodating. The room ‘pebbles’ was amazing with lovely decor. Unfortunately we didn’t get to stay the night as I had to leave late evening. The staff even got our breakfast for the day after so we could take it away. I only have positives to say about this hotel, I thoroughly recommend staying here if you are about in the area.” Stayed Nov 2016
You won’t be disappointed…
“Visited for lunch last week which was just superb. The Mushroom Bruleé was exceptional with the added twist of Truffle Butter and neither did the White Crab with Lemon Grass Emulsion disappoint.. I was on a real food roll by the time the mains arrived and they did no disappoint either. The Menai Mussels were the sweetest I have eaten anywhere the Thai Cream Sauce hit just the right note , a very generous portion of bread made this a lunch to remember. My partner chose Fish and chips – the batter was homemade and crispy , the chips were superb and the crowning glory was the home made tartar sauce. No room for pudding but the final touch of home made petit fours with coffee was just brilliant. Apart from the food, the staff were very friendly and welcoming . My advice – this is a place to put on your list for lunch.” Stayed Oct 2016
Stunning, beautiful, fabulous!!
“Wow, when we arrived we were a little apprehensive as to what to expect, but that soon diminished. We were greeted with a lovely warm welcome by Lynn and her staff and it made you feel so at ease. We were taken through to the Pebble suite and wow what absolutely stunning accommodation it was! The pictures do it no justice whatsoever. Spacious, but cosy at the same time? The walk-in shower/luxury roll top bathroom was gorgeous, the décor with Tim’s own paintings were fab, a truly talented artist, the art work was beyond stunning, and they are through the bar itself. While we drank in the bar and dined in the restaurant the breakfast “fairies” delivered our continental/buffet style breakfast to our suite-wow……Everything and more that you could want, a fresh fruit platter, homemade bread with homemade preserves,yogurts,a choice of 4 cereals to choose from, a selection of cheeses orange and cranberry juice, fresh coffee….it’s endless. A great idea, so easy and relaxed and intimate…..wonderful. Would we recommend – hell yes – would we go again – hell yes – its already booked”
