If peace, stillness, great views, friendly people is what you are looking for then this is the place for you. Rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The best nights sleep due to comfort and being around such amazing nature and mountains. I came here to attend a meditation retreat and have been twice now. I can't wait to come back.... More

We have just had a four night short stay at the mountain lodge. The first thing you notice when you arrive is the stunning views. The rooms are very clean and tidy and the staff are very friendly. Our room had TV and very good wi- fi and was at the front, we experienced very little noise. So overall I... More

Yr Ocar is a beautiful self catering property nestled amongst woodland and with a stream running through the garden. We were a party of 14 with family grounds of children ranging from 3. -16 years. We all had a beautiful bedroom with two single beds which could be joined to make a huge king size bed. Each bedroom was ensuite,... More

Me and husband have just come back from our 3 day journey in snowdonia. Snowdonia mountain lodge is a very nice B&B. I like the fact you have your own front door. I cannot emphasise how friendly the staff are. Rooms are clean and very spacious. Would definately be visiting again! ☺

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
