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

Good choice on menu, food was tasty, well presented and of sufficient quantity, Good solid pub food. Nice choice of real ales, all well priced. Decor & atmosphere in pub was fine, would not hesitate to go again as i have done in the past when visiting the area

Limited choices through my company's booking system, so was a bit concerned about a room over a busy pub, but they are actually pretty nice and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but newly decorated rooms have all the basics and can't complain for the money

This hotel was a lovely surprise. It is located near the junction in the centre of town. We were welcomed on arrival by a person we took to be the manageress. She was pleasant, welcoming and helpful. The first thing we noticed was the range of beers available on the bar - something we look for when booking hotels. As... More

Popped in for a spot of lunch on market day during a holiday visit to Wales. Arrived early lunch time, found a table and ordered. Soon realised we were on "someone's table" in the bar/fire place area as an elderly couple (mainly the woman) made it very obvious that we were inconveniencing them by making them sit elsewhere in the...
