Family stay with dog.
We really enjoyed our stay, family of 5 plus dog. The manager Shon, was really helpful and knowledgeable about the area, being a born and bred local. He explained the history of the centre and its importance to the local community, helping to keep services in the village including the local shop. We travelled in our electric car and it was such a nice surprise to learn there were 4 EV chargers on site, that were free to use, and entirely powered by the solar panels on the roof. They were plenty fast enough for an overnight charge for more exploring in the mou twins the next day. If you are expecting a luxury hotel then the Llety at Canolfan Y Fron is probably not for you but if you are after a small, clean, hostel as a base to explore the fantastic surroundings then you could do a lot worse!

Pleasant stay
Pleasant stay - more upmarket than a regular hostel and nice that it was a small property. Appreciated that in the shared kitchen, each room has their own separate cupboard with crockery, cutlery etc. Had a problem with my room key which was quickly rectified without any fuss, however it was out of hours so I recommend making a note of the emergency number before leaving the room! Wet room was nice but the floor took ages to dry despite the squeegee so recommend planning your shower carefully unless you don't mind wet feet when going to the toilet! (Or keep your shoes on). Good number of picnic benches to sit and eat outside if you want to. Plenty of car parking.
