Reviewed February 29, 2012

loved it. we had 6 of us. worked out cheaper than B&Bs. slept 5 comfortably and one in one of their campbeds. very very freindly. no hassle. didn't even see the owners until i dropped the keys off. good (basic) breakfasts in the cafe. all the basics you'd need (plates, glasses, cuttlery, fairly liquid, tv, power sources, fridge, etc). would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Only one room per cabin (sleeps 2). all 4 cabins looked the same. ours was one in the middle and o...

Well what a fab time was had at Bryn Bettws, we booked in 16 boys from our Under 11's rugby team in with 6 coaches for an overnight teambuilding experience. Not many places welcome 16, 11yr old boys but Bryn Bettws did and they had a ball. Plenty of outside space to burn off some of their energy, comfy and warm inside the lodge. BBQ was available so they could have a camp fire and toast mashmallows.
If you are looking for somewhere that is relaxed and welcoming then this place is top of the list.
Will we go again, they were all ready discussing it as we packed up this morning. Fantastic :)

Room Tip: All the rooms looked good excellent value for money.

Robby and the team at Bryn Bettws are the perfect hosts. Great laugh. Good facilities - bike wash, bike lock up, DVD and big screen, bar etc. Rooms are always clean and tidy, the food is great and the booze is cheap and freely available. Big fried breakfasts, massive chicken curry. £25 hard to beat.

Plus....great spot to start ride - located at the top of the final descent of The Wall and within a few kilometres of the part of Skyline which leads you to final sections of White's Level....in other words you if you've hit it hard on a Saturday and you want to ease in gently on Sunday morning all the climbing has already been done.

Room for improvements? Jump park gets boggy in patches - needs hard packing down as lose too much speed in mud. When it's quiet it can take a while to find someone if need bike wash / bike lockup - but you could just have a beer while you wait and remember your on holiday.

We just stayed at Bryn Bettws and it was great. very friendly and helpful staff (they may even give you a lift to the train station if you break your ankle!). rooms were clean and the food was great. im not sure what the person who gave the negative comment below was expecting for £25 per night but i can assure you it was great value and perfect for mountain bikers, hikers and alike. Also the kitchens are on full view to the cafe and looked clean to me. Get yourself down there!

My daughter and I were walking in the forest and stuck our heads into this lodge for a nose. The owner was there cleaning up after the weekend and even though he didn't know me from adam he gave us free coffee and cake and a guided tour. (we had no money on us) I was really impressed by his enthusiasm and energy, he really gave me the impression that he was willing to bend over backwards to accommodate guests, happy to buy in gluten free bread or veggie sausages. The lodge itself is in an amazing position well off the road with loads of free parking. The dining room has a massive picture window with amazing views. Everything looked really clean and bright. The lodge has a lovely playground outside and BMX track and mountain biking. There are not many places that could keep all ages of kids happy but this is one of them! I definately plan to be back and I am telling all my friends about it.

This is one of the best places we've stayed at. Seven of us arrived late afternoon and received a great welcome. You can wash your bikes in the car park in the most beautiful surroundings. The view is breathtaking on arrival. The rooms were spacious, en suite and spotless. We were given a lovely, curry, rice and chips for dinner which was hearty and delicious and well needed. TV and video in the lounge, with a great bar at a very reasonable price. Welsh breakfast in the morning was fantastic and set us up for the day, especially with the extra bacon! Would recommend this lodge to anyone, we will return again very soon. Good job guys and girls. P.S. thanks for the tabs!

This is the second time we've stayed here and both times have been fantastic. Top value for money, good evening meal for £7.50 and very cheap bar bill. Friendly staff and clean rooms, all you need after a hard day out on the trails. Definitely will be coming back.
