This place is simply food for the soul. I have been 3 times, alone and with friends, for yoga retreats run by Jenni Jones. Aside from Jenni's amazing teaching, the location is stunning and the wild weather just adds to the experience, contrasting with the stillness of meditation and yoga. The rooms are cosy and comfortable and the food is... More

All the reviews about tv's, c'mon guys, seriously? Leave it at home and enjoy the mesmerising scenery on your doorstep. We arrived to a room thoroughly cleaned, warm and comfortable. The owners couldn't have been more accommodating and even brought us additional heaters in case we got cold. The faces that greeted us were warm, friendly and the staff couldn't... More

Chosen because it was close to Zip and very reasonable prices. Didn't realise it was also a meditation centre but that made no difference. Rooms were good size and very clean. Only some of them have tv. Lots of them can accommodate 3 people so great for families or groups like us. Run by vegetarians so don't expect full Welsh... More

We picked this place due to proximity to zip world and reviews on here. This place is set in an epic valley. Views front and back are epic. Yes, epic. Staff are all very friendly. Room was clean enough as was bathroom. Electric radiators are on hand to warm the place, although woke up sweating when we left them on,... More

This place was amazing, we stayed in Lodge 16 and it had everything we needed (and more). I'm not quite sure why people are moaning about there being no TV, you're in one of the most beautifully situated places, you shouldn't be inside your room poisoning your mind with TV anyway!   The staff were LOVELY, they go beyond their...

A single night passing through on business and a gem of a find. Parking right in front of the rooms so straight in. The room was warm and clean but may be basic for some but this was part of its charm. A peaceful nights sleep whilst listening to distant owls under a starry sky with the World Peace Flame... More

For £59 usually I wouldn't expect a great deal, basic at best. This wasn't the case at Snowdonia Mountain Lodge, it is clean, basic (but that is nice considering it's location) and welcoming. Nestled in the middle of Snowdonia National park it is perfect for walking/hiking/climbing alike. It is possibly the nicest place to stay in a few miles at... More

We keep going back! The rooms are warm, clean and lovely and always just what we need after a days walking. The views of the valley from the lodge are breathtaking all year round. Great breakfast, healthy and filling and friendly staff who go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. Beautiful place to stay!

The Snowdonia Mountain Lodge is an amazing place to visit. Everyone is so friendly and genuine. There is a wonderfully peaceful feel across the whole place and the views are fantastic. Retreats are extremely well organised and great value for money. The food is fabulous, very tasty. You leave with renewed vitality and an appreciation for life. Highly recommend -... More

The lodge has comfortable rooms. The surrounding is amazing. Perfect location for daily trips in North-Wales and to explore the local area. The staff is really friendly. Fantastic vegetarian breakfast.
