Good Hotel Guide Review

Landscaped grounds lead down to Bala Lake from Katrina Le Saux’s Victorian house in Snowdonia national park, with a vista of mountains in the blue distance. The views come inside too – B&B accommodation is in comfortable, traditionally styled bedrooms, all with an outlook on the lake. Each room has its own character: Berwyn and Arenig have an antique four-poster bed; in Aran, steep in a freestanding bath by the window. Thoughtful touches are everywhere: fresh flowers and home-baked biscuits; books and glossy magazines; an electric blanket on the bed; underfloor heating in the bathroom. When the sun shines, bask on the terrace; in the cooler months, a log fire burns in the sitting room – good accompaniment for a glass of something from the honesty bar. In the morning, a hearty breakfast on fine china includes home-made bread and preserves, and honey from the hosts’ bees. There are ‘lovely walks in the area’ (and drying facilities on site), but make it back in time to watch the sun set over the Arenig mountain.

Guest comments

'This beautiful house stands in an elevated position overlooking Lake Bala. The three guest bedrooms are beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean. We even had electric blankets! The owners are delightful. On arrival, we were offered tea and home-made cake. This was our second visit; we were made to feel like friends rather than clients. There are lovely walks in the area and for those who love peace and quiet, this is a real haven. ' - Linda Ferstendik - October, 2012
'Our fourth stay. A delight. Charming hosts. We think there is no better place to stay in North Wales. Bedrooms and breakfast room now redecorated. ' - Lynn and Ann Mainwaring - July, 2012
