We booked for a three night stay 16th/18th July 2012. Where to begin first the star rating needs to be reviewed this is no way a 4 star hotel. In the room we stayed there was a double and single bed these were the most uncomfortable beds I have ever tried to get a nights sleep in. The toilet had a smell coming up from the waste. There was a layer of dust around the edge of the carpet. Just shabby. Our first night we had a meal in the bar it was Luke warm and it looked like the potatoes and veg were left over from lunch very unpleasant. Staff pleasant but will not stay here again.
A very unhappy customer.

The whole experience of our stay in The White Lion Royal was excellent. It was a last minute decision to visit Bala lake and we were pleasantly surprised by the room which was quite spacious, clean and family friendly.

The staff were very courteous and helpful, volunteering help and eager to please their guests. The cooked breakfast was good!

This hotel has quite a history with a lot of period features. The walls were adorned with beautiful paintings and other antiques.

I would definitely recommend staying at the White Lion!

We booked a B&B in Bala, which had run out of electricity upon our arrival, and were unable to provide any alternative accomodation. It was through sheer luck on our part that we managed to find this hotel through the Internet while we were stuck in the heavy rain after a 3 hour drive.
This is a very unique hotel, with lots of antiques used to decorate the hotel. There was even an antique lace pram in one of the corridors.
After travelling through rain, it was lovely to have meet their friendly staff and be shown promptly to our rooms. The family rooms and the double room were very spacious, well kept and clean.
Breakfast service was excellent, and so were the hot options provided for breakfast, all very yummy! They provided a good selection of cereals too, and had the best yoghurt I have tasted so far, in England and Wales!
We would certainly stay in this hotel again on our next trip to Bala!

In a sea of mediocrity this is a small gem. Bala doesn't really welcome the English and it shows, but this Hotel was very very clean and the cooking was excellent. We stopped for breakfast and were delighted with the whole process. It deserves much more success than it appeared to have but then whilst the local population stick their collective heads in the sand that may not happen.
