quite little hotel. Friendly staff & comfortable stay. Shower water flow is weak though still usable. Simple English breakfast is adequate.

So near yet so far....
This place could be so much more, but sadly it isn't. Our room was cold, I asked for the heating to be turned on as the kids were feeling the cold. They put an electric heater in the room which had little to no effect. The shower was terrible, barely a trickle. The beds were very uncomfortable, and barely got any sleep. Also, the smell of stale old chip grease hangs over the whole place. Such a shame as this place has potential. Bala is a lovely place to visit, and with this being located on the high street it could be a great place to set up base to explore the area.

Nice hotel, excellent gluten-free food catering
The hotel was easy to find, bright red building on the high street in Bala. There is on-street parking but it's time-restricted in the daytime, the car park for the hotel is around the back, two left turns and you get there, it's rather cozy but doesn't cost. From start to finish the staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed in room 5, a double overlooking the street, the bed was fine, the room was a little noisy on Friday night but nothing earplugs couldn't solve. The shower was good, hot and good pressure. The guest wifi was better than expected, worked in most areas if you were happy to jump between networks. The bar and restaurant were informal and friendly. My girlfriend is gluten-intolerant and the chef was excellent at accommodating her, always happy to adapt dishes to suit her, even made her some chips in a pan because they only had one deep fat fryer, really made her weekend knowing that she could eat food there safely and didn't feel like she was awkward or a burden. The bar was nice and reasonably priced, certainly more reasonable than some of the others we went in, had several televisions and were happy to put on your request of channel if nothing was on, had Sky Sports and BT Sport packages available, we watched the worst-ever Champions League final there with the locals. If we were in Bala again we would definitely consider staying here again.
