Fantastic views if you have paid the premium price for the lake view. We didn't but paid £150+ for one night in a small room with poor furnishing (the table top was split in two). If you want to enjoy the view, go drink and eat there, but don't pay the premium for a room. We booked a meal but... More

On our way down to South Wales we stayed one night with our 5 year old son. We usually stay in the original part of the hotel (our choice) but this time stayed in a newer room. It was perfect for us and had a little balcony which was really nice. The Tavern food was great as was our breakfast.... More

We had a lovely stay at the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel. All staff were really polite and friendly. We used both the Tavern Bistro and the Tower Restaurant and both facilities were very clean and food was lovely. All served with a smile! :-) On the day we departed we decided to extend our stay a little and enjoyed a coffee... More

My husband and I decided to book here for our first wedding anniversary. Having paid £260 for a lake view room, we expected a lot for our money. On arrival, we went for our Spa treatments which were excellent and very relaxing as we could not check into our room until 4:30pm. When we checked in, I wasn't blown away... More

My wife is confined to a wheel chair, I always ask are your premises wheel chair friendly, they said oh yes we have a lift. What they fail to mention you have a long walk along corridors you enter the lift and exit in a store room, then along another long corridor where you find yourself outside, with a further... More

I booked this hotel as a birthday treat. When we arrived they didn't have our booking (it seems it might have been my fault) but they came through admirably and set us up with a beautiful bedroom with a view... ...and what a view! This is the feather in this hotels cap. We arrived as the sun was setting after... More

A stunning location. The hotel itself could do with a bit of a make over but the staff and facilities were all very good. The views from the hotel across the lake were quite breath taking. The lake itself is lovely and the damn is well worth a visit. Plenty of good walks and things to do nearby.

We stayed here for a couple of nights last month. This place is very remote, the best point of the hotel is definitely the views of the lake. Absolutely stunning!! Food in the restaurant is excellent although I found it really strange that you could not book a table overlooking the lake as they said that would not be fair... More

We had been planning to stay here for some time so expectations were quite high, especially after looking at the web-site and of course we booked a lake view room. As we approached our room down the 2nd floor corridor we already had misgivings as the hotel smelled musty and the paintwork & fittings looked tired. Our room was pokey... More

this is the second time we have stayed here in a lake view room with balcony in the new part of the hotel (I think there are only 3 of these superior rooms). Very hot in the corridor of the new part of the building but once in the room you can fling open the door and window. We left... More
