“Easter Get Away”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

I've never written a review on Tripadvisor before, but this place was so good that I feel I have to!
My girlfriend and I stayed here for three nights over the Easter bank holiday weekend. Tim and Fiona were great hosts, very polite,chatty and made us feel very welcome!
The rooms are great, very clean and comfortable.
The food was fantastic, all locally sourced and freshly made to your liking.
Great selection for breakfast too!
No phone signal, for some a negative, but for us it was brilliant, just to get away from everything for a few days!
We will definitely be returning, probably the best B&B we've stayed in!! 10 out of 10!!

Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

tim and fiona immediately made us feel welcome as a group, they'd remembered each of our names and its touches like this that make the difference and make you feel welcome. all the rooms were very smart with en suites, and the large dining room and adjoining pub/bar meant relaxing in the evening was lovely. will definitely be back!

Excellent hosts, wonderful food sourced from local suppliers where possible , plenty to do and see in this part of North Wales . All rooms suitable as bar only open limited nights to a few local farmers . Well appointed bedrooms with good design features . Good value for money .

I booked a short break here in February half term. What a great choice!
We were welcomed by Fiona and shown to our room -which was beautifully presented and really comfortable. Gwytherin is really off the main roads and is really peaceful.
Dinner was superb - Fiona's chicken pate is amazing.
After a day spent on the Ffestiniog railway, we again dined in and the dinner was again excellent.
Breakfast on both days was perfect -we will definitely stay again and thoroughly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed in Rosemary -good choice.

Thanks to Fiona and Tim and all the locals !
Had a great three nights stay. The evening meal on the first night was amazing ! and Tim and Fiona were as helpfull as usual even though Tim was feeling under the weather.
The room was as clean and comfy as usual and the breakfast was great. The pub is cosy and the locals make you feel very welcome!

We booked a two night stay at the last minute and were very pleased with the price especially considering it was New Years eve.
Everything in this Inn is designed beautifully, every detail looked over with a careful eye and Fiona and Tim are delightful hosts. We would return again just for the breakfast alone which was fantastic. A great find.

Room Tip: Don't go for "The Bothy" annex if you are bothered by low ceilings. We didn't min...

Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay in the Lion Inn, the location and scenery is beautiful and just perfect for a weekend to get away from it all. The hosts Fiona and Tim were extremely welcoming and very helpful. The room we had was lovely and very clean. There is a dvd library, books, and an ipod docking station, suggested walking routes, so lots to keep you occupied. The breakfast was a real treat in the Lion Inn, everything was local and handmade which was great. Fiona's homemade bread was really delicious. The pub part of the Lion Inn was lovely also, very cute and old fashioned in the best possible way. It was a lovely end to the day to be able to have a few drinks and a chat and then stroll upstairs to bed! Would definitely recommend the Lion Inn and would love to stay here again.
