My wife and i stayed at the Fronoleu as many others have commented on a KGB deal for 2 nights on the 12th and 13th of September.
As many of the other travellers have also commented the hotel would benefit from a little updating as the decor was "well worn" but this detracted very little from what was a very enjoyable stay and was of a cosmetic nature only.
We were apprehensive from some of the other trip advisor comments but had no need to worry. The place is quirky but we found everything clean, tidy and comfortable.
We visited the area to walk Cadir Idris which was on the hotels doorstep so it provided exactly what we needed.
The food was excellent - the first night was part of the purchased deal but we also eat there on our second night, i think this speaks for itself in what we thought of the meal. Portions were large ( but you dont have to eat it all ) and service was slower than expected but only because everything was cooked from scratch and fresh. If you want fast mass prepared food go elsewhere - but why would you settle for that???
All in all good value for money, cheerful and helpful staff
We have already booked to return in the new year
