  • "The apartment was very well laid out and spacious."

    I understand that it had only been open a few months. Manager Charlie was lovely and offered help should it be needed. The pub below the apartment could be a little noisy, but if you are going to stay above a pub you expect this. The restaurant had good food. The equipment in the apartment was great, even had a washing machine and tumble dryer in it (didn't use). Downside was that there is no carpark, but was able to use carpark opposite pub. All in all a lovely apartment, and would use again if visiting that area of Wales again. Really hope the Council gives permission for the windows to be fixed (broken glass and couldn't shut properly) but as it is an old pub it has to have special licence to do this. Could be a little cold in winter until windows are fixed. Would recommend. Shop opposite pub was very well stocked but a little pricey, lovely lady working there as well.

Together sleeping up to 18 people, the apartments are ideal for large groups of couples, families and friends to come together to celebrate a special occasion or to explore the vast array of attractions and activities within the area, including the beauty of the Snowdonia National Park resting just a few miles away. One of the apartments can be found above The Blue Lion pub, whilst the three other apartments are located together within a converted pub, situated just a stone’s throw away. Each apartment enjoys a sleek interior design and boasts everything you could need for a self-catered stay, including fully-equipped kitchens and spacious sitting rooms with TVs. Apartments 2 & 3 come with wonderful enclosed garden, where you can come together to pop open a bottle of fizz, dine alfresco or unwind by dipping into the bubbling hot tubs.
