My career has me visiting Hotels on a regular basis, so when booking a B&B I am always a little apprehensive. Pen-Isa'r-Llan and Patricia create an environment that hotel chains can never achieve. When we arrived at Pen-Isa'r-Llan Patricia showed us to our room, it wasn't part of the main building, on opening the door we were greeted with a... More

We spent two nights in this beautifully maintained grade 2 listed house. Situated a few minutes from Bala town it offers everything a proper B&B should: A decent sized room, spotless bathroom, easy parking, a tasty full cooked breakfast and wonderful hosts. It really couldn't have been better!

Over night stay, excellent location and very clean. Breakfast was top quality. 10 minutes walk in to town... Enjoyed a steam train ride along the side of Bala lake. Plenty of places to eat in Bala. We stayed in the double ensuite, I would recommend this property.

My fiance and I booked a very last minute trip away and needed somewhere dog friendly we could relax. We couldn't have picked better. The owner was absolutely lovely and so helpful but not overbearing. Their dog Jess was equally as welcoming!! The place was absolutely spotless and we had use of a private bathroom as well as a double... More

I tend to spend a lot of time reviewing places before I book, I did it the other way round this time on the basis we were taking the dog! Rest assured although this is dog friendly there is nothing doggy about it at all, it was one of the cleanest and nicest places we have visited. Pat & Chris... More

Stumbled upon by accident, made us feel at home, spotless hygiene, amazing views and the best breakfast we have had in an overnight stay. They say the best things in life are not planned, this is definitely the case. Patricia was such a fantastic help and kept in touch throughout our experience. We will definitely recommend and be back. Would... More

Just spent a few nights at this lovely cottage - the website does not do this place justice - everything we needed was there. Its a short walk into Bala and a great base for exploring North Wales. Thanks for a very enjoyable stay.

First of all I'll introduce the group we were as it's clear from previous reviews that Libby acts differently to different groups. We were an all male group staying in the bunkhouse. We were only using this place as a base to sleep and we didn't expect much. It was a good job that's all we were doing as there... More
