    ! My husband went with the intention of doing absolutely nothing, switching off from the craziness of life and that’s exactly what we did. I can not fault the property exceptionally clean, wonderful views and the hot tub was the cherry on the cake. We will definitely be returning.

    The views are stunning and the peace & quiet to only hear the hoot of an owl was perfect. There is everything you'd need for a weekend or weeks stay & every little detail has been thought about. Lovely Welsh welcome with prosecco & Welsh cakes and the hot tub under cover is the icing on the cake. Can't wait to rebook and we've not stopped telling friends & family about our stay. Thank you

    Cannot fault the lodge and the hot tub in particular was great, we had a very relaxing stay - the only negative was just a little remote for us - we went for one week but if only going for a couple of nights would be perfect to get away from it all.

  • "CILAN LODGE What a stunning place to stay."

    Its exactly how it looks in the picture, just perfect. It sits just outside Llandrillo and was central to everywhere we visited. Looking out of the lodge at the amazing scenery every morning & evening was just beautiful. The Hot tub is perfect after a long day walking and to look out at the wildlife, the sheep, the rabbits, birds was amazing. We are definitely returning to this stunning place. Thank you to Sue & Chris perfect hosts who gave us perfect directions from where we live up North to Cilan Lodge in Snowdonia. The lodge was spotlessly clean with everything we needed. We arrived to a lovely touch - prosecco, Welsh cakes, jam & other little extras.

  • "On arrival the Lodge was pristinely clean and tidy, with little welcoming touches like prosecco and Welsh cakes which were greatly appreciated after a long drive."

    The photographs taken for the Lodge's listing on booking sites are accurate, except they don't show the birds and the sheep who sometimes come right up to the fence to say hello! For us, the biggest draw of Cilan Lodge has to be its hot tub. It doesn't disappoint - solid construction, incredible views, jacuzzi massage jets, pre-heated and ready to go whenever you are. It's ever-so welcome when coming back from a full day of hill walking. The tub's best feature though is its seclusion. We've stayed at other places where the 'private hot tub' is partially overlooked by other tubs or properties. Not at Cilan Lodge though - the tub and patio are entirely enclosed on three sides, plus the roof, so the nearest place where you could be seen from is several hundred meters away across multiple fields. The Lodge is well situated right in the middle of North Wales, so there's something for everyone within a reasonable travel time by car. It's 15min from the quaint little towns of Bala and Corwen, 25min from Llangollen, 40min from the adventurous activities in Ffestiniog, 45min from the centre of the larger towns of Wrexham and Oswestry, and 1hr from Llanberis for Mt. Snowdon. Overall, very happy with our mid-week break at Cilan Lodge. It's perfect for couples looking for a retreat. We'd thoroughly recommend it and will look forward to staying again next time we're in North Wales.

  • "We can't say enough positive things about Cilan Lodge."

    It's exactly as it looks on the listing, clean, comfortable and the views are amazing. The local villages are small with limited eateries but the ones we tried were all great with good food and friendly service. It's also a good central base to visit the surrounding areas. We loved waking up in the morning to look over the fields with a cup of tea and some Welsh cakes and finishing our days walking in the hot tub with a glass of gin and tonic. Perfect for a relaxing or active break. Our only feedback would be that the outside lights are on a timer so sometimes we came home in the dark (8pm or so) and there were a lot of bugs around. They also stay on until around 2am. There are black out curtains but i'm a particularly light sleep so would recommend bug spray and an eye mask!
