              It was well located for our needs and the breakfast was alright. The shower was good.

              Very tired, tatty and scruffy. No remote control for the TV and one could not be supplied when asked. The furniture was falling apart and tired. The window frames were filthy with mold and the paintwork was flaking off inside and out. The window catch was in danger of falling off and so the window could not be closed properly. The curtains were too thin to keep out light and were not properly hung and did not fit.

              This hotel was convenient for our stopping off point on our journey through Wales. It was on the main road of our route and provided everything we needed for an overnight stay.

              great hotel, walked around and we thought it was the best in Bala town centre, good food helpful staff and great room if a bit noisy ( at the front)

              no complaints at all a great stay

              Friendly staff (all very busy) The old coaching house theme attracted me to book.The rooms and food were very good

              Can be noisy late at night on the carpark. under the rear bedrooms

              Comfortable, retained it's character and ideally located.

              The evening meal was disappointing, the lamb was tough and overcooked with hardy any vegetables. Definitely not value for money. In contrast the breakfast was excellent. However the tables were sticky even after cleaning

              The staff were very friendly and helpful, I lived in Bala for the first 9 years of my life so I knew the hotel very well. It is still the nicest in Bala

              There was absolutely nothing that I liked at this hotel except the look of the actual building from the outside. Inside, it was the worst 4* establishment that I have ever tried to sleep in, and I have travelled around the world twice during my lifetime. I have had better service and staff politeness at a 2* hotel. I was in room 301 and the toilet was actually situated in the bedroom almost at the foot of the bed - disgusting, and both windows were frosted glass because of this so there was no way of viewing the outside, allbeit the carpark at the back, without opening the window, in the rain on this particular evening. The mattress on the bed had more lumps in it than Snowdon mountain, and there was no mattress cover, this is not 4* status. As a Welsh person I felt shameful for visiting guests from other countries who might experience such horror. There was no toiletries except a small bottle of shampoo, no hair conditioner, and the small bar of soap supplied had to be sufficient for the shower also, and no shower cap. A female guest should not have been allocated a room like this. You get better value at youth hostels etc. for quarter of the price. From what I have seen on tv this room was not much better than a prison cell. Anyone thinking of booking a single room at this hotel needs to make enquiries first.

              Lovely hotel, a little oldy worldly, but with character. Staff were very friendly and helpful, meals and service very good. Would certainly stay there again, and maybe take my lap top as wi fi was available.

              Good location and parking - easy to find in the centre of Bala . a lovely old building.

              Our room was on the third floor. There is no lift and we had no offer of help with our luggage.

              The breakfast was acceptable

              There was alot of street noise eminating from groups of youths drinking and cars sounding their horns until 2 in the morning. the evening meal service left alot to be desired taking longer than 30 minutes to serve for each course.
