“Chill out time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011

Have just returned from this fantastic hotel, from the moment we arrived we were welcomed with warmth and friendliness. Check-in was efficient and very informal, we dropped our bags in the room, and were then treated to tea/coffee, with lovely home made cake. The hotel is just outside the town of Bala, but it's reachable with a 40 minute leisurely stroll, be warned though if your coming back at night, it is very dark and I mean very dark along the lane that takes you down to the hotel, the walk along the lane will take you about 20 minutes, and you have to be on your guard as the odd vehicle comes down the lane, and I don't think there expecting people walking along the lane in the dark. The Hotel is fantastic, the views take your breath away, and there is no noise, apart from various farm animals and wildlife. The rooms are lovely, comfy beds and all with great views of the lake, tea/coffee and biscuits in your room, no t.v. which suited us fine, great shower with plenty of fluffy towels. In the morning breakfast is served in a room which has again with lovely views out over the lake, breakfast is excellent, choices for everyone. This hotel has everything, lovely rooms, lovely grounds, lovely views and most importantly, hosts who make you feel ever so welcome, so a BIG BIG, thanks to Rob & Vicki, Paul & Rosie, see you soon. Thanks

From the minute we arrived the hosts couldn't do enough for us. Perfect rooms, perfect bala lake view, perfect breakfast. Thank you Rachi for all your tips on where to go and what to see. Thank you to the lady from finland for keeping us warm and ensuring the water was hot.
Bala is a great town full of lovely people, especially if your breaks need fixing. Thank grrant. Bala is approx 1hr from snowdon and 40 minutes from all the other sites.
its quite and peaceful, just what a newly wed couple need. Thank you sandi & ash jan'11

Aftern the long drive to Snowdonia from the South Coast I can honestly say we were overjoyed when we saw Glan-y-gro as it far exceeded our expectations. We were greeted by very friendly staff. We were shown to our very spacious room on the lower ground floor and were amazed with the view when the curtains were opened. We had our own patio doors which led onto a balcony so close to the lakes edge that it felt like the water was almost lapping at our feet. We kept our curtains open so we could be awoken by the sunrise over the lake which was stunning. You are asked to complete a breakfast card before 6pm each evening and the choice was fantastic and the breakfast itself was delicious and just what we needed before travelling out each day. We felt so relaxed and regenerated by the time we left. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!
