I was lucky enough to find (by chance) a twin room for one night for myself and my sister at this excellent lodge. What a great place to stay! You won't get a greasy fry-up for breakfast though. The best part of the stay? We enjoyed a very healthy continental breakfast with fresh fruit, fruit juices (of all sorts for... More

Amazing place with friendly, attentive and helpful staff! Food was delicious and views were to die for. There are some incredible walks from the lodge which the staff told us about. The rooms were very comfortable, a little aged but didn't dampen the trip at all. Definitely recommend!

I liked everything about this place. The rooms are basic, but clean and nice. There was a TV, a little fridge, as well as a hairdryer. The staff were friendly and approachable. The location stunning. I don't normally review places, but the reason I wanted to praise this B&B in particular is the (included) breakfast. I suffer from food allergies,... 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.
