Glan Y Gro is lovely B&B in a quiet location along side Bala Lake. It's a 5 min drive from Bala town. We only stayed for the one night as we were on our way to visit Lake Vyrnyw, we choose Bala as our overnight stay, and thought we'd take advantage of visiting Lake Bala too. We had a Lovely welcome to Glan y Gro on arrival, and was offered a cup a tea whilst we checked in!
All the rooms are named after various mountains/lakes/rivers in the area, and we were in the Vyrnyw room. This room can be a twin, but they converted it to a double for us, and this made it a very big comfy bed. The room was spacious, airy and light and clean, with an ensuite bathroom with a powerful shower! Although it wasn't one of the many rooms that overlooked the lake, the private balcony we had, did give us a view of the lake, from the side of the B&B.
There are no TV's in the rooms, but they provide a cd/radio player. we took our laptop and used it to play something if we needed. Also there's free Wi-Fi.
The Breakfast in the morning, which you would choose the night before, was served in a room overlooking the lake, our table had been set up so we could view the lake while we ate!
I would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting to get away from it all, as it is in a quiet location and everything is relaxed and peaceful. Also we rang Glan Y Gro and booked directly with them, this worked out cheaper than what we were offered on 'late rooms'.
