My wife, myself and 17 week old daughter stayed here for 4 nights in October for a short break away.
We stayed in lodge 26 and found the site no problem from the A55 and received a warm welcome from the lady at reception. The lodge itself lookd very nice however it could certainly have done with a more thorough cleaning than it currently receieves. There were a lot of cobwebs around the place. The 2 bedrooms were adequate for our requirements however the master bedroom smelled of stale cigarette smoke which was very offputting at the start but after leaving the window open for 2 days the smell seemed to go, either that or our noses just got used to it!
I wasn't too impressed with having to make up your own beds with linen still in a plastic bag straight from the laundrette but accepted that as we didnt exactly pay a fortune for our stay. Only 1 toilet roll supplied lasted the first night until we could go to the local shop the next day to buy some and a tea towel as these are not supplied either (no towels are supplied in fact). A bonus for us which we didnt realise was that there is a washing machine in the kitchen area which proved very handy having a young baby with us.
We ate in the club house on two occasions and canot fault the food. It was fresh, hot and very nice indeed and fairly priced. It was very quiet when we were in but it was the end of October and we went in earlier due to having a baby with us.
All in all a nice few days away and I would recommend Ogwen Bank to others but take note of the above, takke your own toilet roll and towels and be prepared to make your own beds when you arrive.
