My friend and I were in Bala for 3 nights, and 2 of which we spent here! The living room (right next to the bedroom upstairs), the bathroom and the bedroom itself were all well equipped and the bedroom looks exactly the same as the advertised picture (unlike other places I've stayed in!). We chose the bathroom with the tub instead of the shower, which was quite spacious. Other than the usual packet-sized toiletries, I loved how they provided shampoo/conditioner etc. that you would normally get from the shops. There was also a lovely teddy bear in the bathroom (and also a cute door stopper for the bedroom) which I thought were nice touches by Helen :)
We went through the DVD collection and found a movie to watch for the 2 nights.
The breakfast was huge and we ate so much the first day - a lot to choose from, and the cooked breakfast was just brilliant. Helen also prepared lunch for us for the second day, and it was packed very conveniently into lunch boxes for us.
The location is perfect to explore the main part of Bala, just walking distance from the lake and everything interesting in the town.
The only thing I would suggest to improve is the TV in the bedroom because it is quite small. We tried watching TV in the living room next door (which was much bigger) but it didn't work that day. Compared to the Railway Cottage in Frongoch which we stayed in for the 3rd night, the convenience of location was definitely a boost! However, as the room in Railway Cottage was isolated from the main holding, I felt that we had more privacy there in comparison to Monfa.
Nevertheless, we loved our stay regardless, and would definitely revisit when we have the chance!
