I was greeted by who I believe be the manager. I booked a single room but to my delight was instantly upgraded to a Double room at no further cost. The food was hot and to a good standard.Having been a cleaner in the past in hospitality I enjoy checking accommodation for cleaning errors.I was quite happy with what I found.The bed was comfortable and staff friendly.

Had lunch here last week. Ordered the Chicken and Bacon Salad, and Goats Cheese sLad from the main menu. Very tasty meals but very little of it. Not much goats cheese at all. 4 small lettuce leaves and a bit of spinach. Very disappointing. Staff lovely though. Didn’t say anything at the time but wish I had.

Had a warm welcome upon arrival and check in was very straight forward. The manager Barry made us feel very much at home as did Thomas on the bar. The food was delicious with a good variety to choose from. I would happily return again with out a doubt. I also have to say loved the Christmas decor!

I paid for my bus driver to stay at this hotel as I was staying so where else. The owner was drunk and offered to fight my driver and also didn't let him stay there. This resulted in my drivers sleeping in there mini bus on a freezing cold day.

Thank you of taking the time to leave your feedback. Im sorry you were not completely satisfied on this occasion. I understand there was a mix up with the names on the bookings. All names on the bookings must match with the resident that is checking in, on this occasion this did not correspond. This is for full track and trace disclosure. This is our policy, particularly during the current circumstances. If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me at the hotel. Regards Trish

We were passing through Bala and decided to stop off for some lunch! As soon as we walked into the white lion, the gentleman who appeared was nothing more than friendly, big smile and very polite! He made us feel very comfortable! He showed us to our table where we were asked to order from the app. As soon as we pressed confirm our drinks were infront of us! The barman/ waiter was also very polite and friendly! 😀. I ordered fish and chips and the portion was huge!! And my husband ordered a pie and chips - we couldn’t fault the food at all! And walked out very full! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get names of the people who served us that day but would 100% go back if I’m ever around this area again!
