Bala is a small sleepy village/town in North Wales on the edge of the Snowdonia national park. I stayed with friends for a stag weekend and the hotel was lovely, bar served a great pint if ale, we tried a few local pubs but went back to the hotel! Also nice evening meal for the price and when i needed sone special assistance with travel plans the following morning the staff bent over backwards.

After arriving in Bala and setting up our tent we were desperate for a hearty lunch but unfortunately did not get one here.I chose the ploughmans lunch which was just a few slices of cheese,a couple of salad leaves,a slice of bread and a quarter of an apple all for £5.95.I was very disappointed especially when the next day I bought a ploughmans from the co-op opposite to take on a picnic which was twice the size and the equivellent of £1 in the meal deal.

The hotel is well located in the center of Bala. Has a small private car park. It's an old building and a bit quirky. Rooms are well appointed and we had an executive room that was very spacious (only because it was the last room available). Hotel restaurant and bar serves good quality food and prices are in line with other pubs / bars in Bala.

Bala can be lively at the weekend so rooms at the front can be a bit noisy.

Will use this hotel again when we return to Bala.

Room Tip: If you don't want to be disturbed at night by the lively high street, particularly at weekends, ask for a room at the rear.

I think we must have stayed in a different hotel from some of the guests whose comments are posted on this page or we were very lucky and they were unlucky! We stayed for three nights with our son daughter in law and their two small children. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff who were friendly kind and efficient. We had two spacious rooms spotlessly clean with comfortable beds AND pillows!! OK the plumbing was a bit unusual and the floorboards creaked but surely that has something to do with the age of the building and adds to the character? The food was well cooked and plentiful and we had our evening meal each night with a great choice on the menu! Service was brilliant. We loved the location and had a really enjoyable break and will definately return and will recommend it to all and sundry! Well done the white lion dont let the rants get you down!!!

What a lovely hotel. Fantastic triple room which slept three adults. Very clean and spacious with a lovely en-suite. Good service from the staff and a great breakfast. Fantastic location - the National White Water Centre is literally a 5minute drive away - thoroughly enjoyed the rafting. Bala Lake only a 5 minute walk which was really tranquil. Quite frankly not interested if there is dust under the dressers... we had a fantastic weekend! Booking again for next year already!!

Room Tip: Booking through Booking.com - we saved £30 per room per night against the tariff on show in reception.
