Beautiful Location and pleasant grounds that would have been even better had the weather matched. Inside the hotel the public rooms were pleasantly decorated and clean. Breakfasts were good with plenty of choice to suit most tastes Our room was in the older part and was large with a good view across the lake and even though overlooking the road... More

There are many reviews of this hotel and I read a lot of them before my visit here. I believe that the experience of this hotel will vary depending on what you are looking for and what things are most important to your party. We booked fairly late in the day at the height of the season and our needs... More

Our second time at this hotel, but with different owners. Mainly to get away for the bank holiday weekend. The room was clean and tidy and a bit on the small side, the views of the lake and cadar idris are magnificent. The owner is very friendly and easy to talk to and the rest of the staff are very...

We did not enjoy our latest stay at this hotel as much as we enjoyed our stay last September. We missed the welcome and the help that we were given by the charming Geraint when we were last here. This time the owner asked the Hungarian member of staff to show us our room and he just flapped his hand... More

Bedroom was not serviced on arrival. When we returned the bedroom was only half done - cobwebs and dust, no cups or glasses, no soap, no bathmat. On neither morning did the shower work, and on both occasions the attitude of the management was that it worked the day before, so it must have been our fault. On the second... More

This is one of my favourite locations having spend holidays in the Talyllyn valley since a child. We've stayed here several times, but there seems to have been a change of owner in the last few years and sadly this hotel has let things slip. The location is beautiful and the views of the mountains and lake just stunning. But... More

This is one of our most favourite locations possibly in the world. Have stayed at this hotel on previous occasions and visited last month for my wife's special birthday. Accompanied by friends whom we advised how wonderful the place was. On arrival we were met at reception by the owners wife. The service was first class. The chef was front... More

We called in for lunch in the vain hope that things might have been improved. sadly not so. In mid July no one around the reception or the bar. We stood, waited and then sat ourselves down. We went for the best spot - a set of comfortable chairs facing the lake in a corner, beautiful views. But then with... More
