Just arrived back from Ogwen Bank after a week-long break in July and had a lovely time. My family and I had a two bedroom lodge right by the river and was a very pleasant setting. The lodge was slightly smaller than we expected, but soon got used to it. It had everything we needed, with all the relevant kitchen appliances in working order. There was even milk when we arrived, a nice touch.
But we had a power cut one night and only found the main switch in the morning. There is no number to contact if you have a problem in the small hours, so you have to wait until the following day to sort it out. The TV has only the basic freeview channels and there is also no wi-fi on site, meaning keeping yourself entertained in the evening was challenging at times. Installing wi-fi on site and perhaps adding a DVD player would be my main suggestions.
The park itself is set in stunning surroundings, and has a nice pub with very friendly staff. We ate there a couple of nights, with the food being reasonably priced and tasty (I recommend the Lamb!). Ogwen Bank is very close to the main tourist attractions in North Wales and Anglesey; and was certainly nice to come back to a peaceful and tranquil location after exploring the area.
With a couple of tweaks I would give this 5 out of 5, but would definitely recommend the park for anyone looking to stay in self-catering accomodation in the area.
