As other reviewers have noted this is a pub with rooms so there's no separate reception. The double room on the second floor was OK and the bed was comfortable but the switch for the TV was only just below the ceiling. I had to stand on a chair to turn it on. Meals were well cooked. I'd describe it... More

On arrival, had to queue at a busy bar for check in (there is no reception). Staff busy serving regulars and not welcoming at all. Did not even bother to tell me where the room was. The room was comfortable but very dated and cramped and located over the kitchen. The access to the room was up a grubby staircase... More

I had the mixed grill here and thought it would be an easy meal to complete as I've had loads in the past, but to my surprise it was a challenge and the tastiest challenge I've ever had, normally chips are small and easy but these were chunky chips the way a heavy meal like this should be, the meats...

Mmmmmm, a dog sat eating at a table - I would like to have seen that!!! (Previous review) just called in here for a drink with the family, and dogs, while waiting to pick up a Chinese takeaway. A great atmosphere on an early Saturday evening. Lots of families, and dogs, in the bar. The food looks good, large plates... More

Stay for a night while travelling through the area. The room was clean and well appointed. The ensuite was also clean. Breakfast was ok as was dinner. The hotel does need to review the policy of pets in the bar as this does not seem to be hygienic. A person was feeding a dog which was sat at a table.

We recently stayed at this hotel on a cycling holiday in Wales, having used it on a couple of occasions previously. The owners have clearly done a great deal of work to upgrade the decor, along with an external facelift and a tarmac car park. Our group of 13 thoroughly enjoyed their stay with excellent food, a good selection of... More

Although having an email and phone confirmation reservation, no room was available when we arrived. Little concern as to our lack of accommodation, just suggested try the Wynnstay Hotel next door! Luckily they had a room and were excellent, but don't trust the White Lion!

I was surprised there didn't seem to be much accommodation on offer in Machynlleth but the White Lion is ideally placed in the town centre near the clock tower. The White Lion is an attractive traditional stone building. Upon entering the bar the atmosphere was friendly. My room was pleasantly decorated in neutral tones and spotlessly clean. There was a...

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Machynlleth and had vaguely heard reviews about this place so decided to give it a try. We called in on spec and were found a table easily. The place is comfortable and pleasant without being overly luxurious or fancy. Our meals were not too long in coming and when they did, they... More
