Accommodation

The route itinerary is dictated to some extent by the availability of accommodation.  Here, we include a few suggestions but Trail followers may be able to negotiate travel arrangements with accommodation owners. We have not sampled these facilities so take no responsibility for the standard of your stay! We suggest you look at Trip Advisor and make your own judgement. A number of the suggestions are located just off the Trail but judicious use of the OS map and alternative footpaths will get you back on track. This list includes accommodation opportunities all along the Trail, providing you with the opportunity to tailor the walk to suit the time you have available.

Please remember that mobile phone coverage is patchy in Snowdonia, so book in advance.

Bangor has a mix of accommodation types, including university owned accommodation, hotels, guest houses and a Youth Hostel.
