Good Hotel Guide Review
There are ‘stunning’ views of Bala lake and Arenig mountain from the bedrooms of this Victorian house on a hillside in Snowdonia national park. Visitors this year appreciated the decor’s ‘perfect taste’. The comfortable bedrooms are supplied with cut flowers, home-baked biscuits, books, magazines. Both Berwyn and Arenig have an antique four-poster, underfloor heating in a luxury bathroom with spa bath and separate shower. Aran is a double-aspect room with super-king-size bed, a bathroom with a bath under the window allowing you to soak while gazing at the lake. Walkers returning drenched on chilly days find drying facilities, a fire burning in the sitting room. Breakfast, served at a long table alongside a grand piano, includes bread, granola and preserves, home made by hostess Katrina Le Saux in her kitchen; the honey is home made by the bees in the house’s hives. There is a full Welsh cooked breakfast for those who wish, terraces for sitting out in the landscaped gardens. For a gourmet meal, Tyddyn Llan in Llandrillo is less than 20 minutes’ away by car (see entry). Bodnant Garden and Portmeirion are an easy drive.
