Certificate of Excellence
Glan Y Gro Lakeside Suites offers visitors to Snowdonia a unique experience, providing 4 luxury suites on the shore of Lake Bala. Ideal for peaceful relaxation and outdoor activity - we even have our slipway. Our smallest suite, Vyrnwy is to the side yet still offers a private balcony with views of the lake and steam railway. Also provides a kitchenette/diner and leather tub chairs in the bedroom. Drysgol, a little larger than Vyrnwy, offers a lounge/kitchenette/diner as well as the bedroom with double bed. Tegid, the third Suite on the lower level (one level above ground floor) and offers more spacious accommodation with lounge/kitchenette/diner and a king size bedroom with bed looking directly out through patio doors and across the lake. Arenig Lakeside Suite, on the main property level (above the others) with a separate door leading into the kitchen from where you can walk through into the lounge/diner. This suite also benefits from having a double ended whirlpool bath.
