Lovely comfy hotel. Call to reconfirm room type.

Posted Aug 24, 2012
Pros: The rooms were very spacious and great shower!
Cons: Very noisy from the street on a Saturday night.
Location: Wonderful location in Bala's high street
The White Lion is very well located centrally in Bala's high street. They let us check in very early at no extra cost, as we had a wedding to get ready for which was just down the road from this hotel. The staff were great and our room was great. They're well sized, clean and the bed very comfy. Communication between Expedia and the hotel wasn't so great however as they'd not received the detail. They'd put us in a double bed and we asked for a twin. The hotel claimed they didn't know. So that aspect could have been better. Be warned if you're looking to stay there on a Saturday night as the noise from the local chippy which is right by the hotel goes on until 2-3am.

Lovely hotel, shame about the noise. Unfortunately we could hear every movement of other people walking around the hotel. Staff were lovely and friendly, rooms were nice and clean.

The White Lion maintains a very good all round standard I have used this hotel on many ocasions and would not consider any other whilst staying in Bala. Very good value for money.

First Choice in Bala area.

Have used the White Lion on several occasions during the past 3 years and have always been pleased with the overall service.The staff at whatever time are always willing to help.The breakfast and good choice of evening meals are very good value.The addition of a lift would make ones stay even more enjoyable though I realise this addition would be difficult and might even take away some of the unique character of this hotel. I look forward to my next visit.
