Lovely quiet location with good views and great accessibility for nearby walks. Good parking right outside the door to our room. Very basic room for the price, it could have certainly done with some redecoration and cleaning it felt more like a very expensive youth hostel. Staff were all very pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast was really good with a great... More

If you're looking for less than basic at an extortionate price then this is the place. No comforts, no facilities, no hot breakfast, not even a proper buffet style continental as described in the details. no TV, no radio. Should be advertised just for outward bound groups etc.

Splendid location in the heart of the mountains yet on the A5 and easy parking . Well appointed rooms and super veggie breakfast. Has the feel of a motel yet has the friiendliness and comfort of homely B&B

I did not realise that this was not a proper hotel. Although the room was comfortable and clean, it was very small with nowhere to put your suitcase. When we arrived there was no one at reception, just a note that our key was in the door of a room number. There was no TV remote and one could not... More

We were staying at the lodge with another couple, but I was contacted before our trip to see if we would be willing to upgrade the two rooms for two rooms at another property, Yr Ocar. This beautiful home with annex is normally used for yoga retreats and other groups. It is secluded and in the loveliest setting, our stay... More

Hi Cathy D, We are very pleased that you enjoyed your upgrade. Yr Ocar is a beautiful venue that we usually hire out to groups, as you mentioned. Nestled next to bubbling river and surrounded by forest, it could be said to be one of the most beautiful private accommodation places in the area. We are delighted you appreciated your... More

I stayed here for the weekend with other participants of a Yoga Retreat. The beautiful location was expected but the standard of accommodation and meals was not. The room was very well designed, the bed amazingly comfortable and the tea/coffee provision exceptional. The vegetarian meals were all delicious and ample - in particular the bread and butter pudding was the... More

Stayed here with my wife after climbing Mt Snowdon. This is in the perfect location for going on walks with amazing views. The hotel is nice and clean with a large range of healthy breakfast choices..the options were quite big with emphasis on healthy and natural foods. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in the area

We wanted a comfortable place to stay after a day's hiking; the Mountain Lodge is in the Nant Ffrancon valley so suited fine. I was greeted on arrival, shown to our room ( basic but spotless) and shown the guest lounge which has a tv, DVDs and a kitchen/dining area. The room was comfortable, en suite clean and there was...
