“Same as a lot of other people”
Reviewed 3 June 2012

I mainly booked this place as i needed Wifi as i was there for work purposes, as everyone else has said the wifi rarely, if ever works in the room and you have to go down stairs to lounge areas to get it to work, although this is information you have to discover for yourself, rather like geocatching but for wifi signal instead. The lady made out this was absolutely baffling but now having read the reviews i cannot imagine this is the first time she has heard this! The towels are like they have been cut down to size from a previously bigger size but they must now have a passing trade of hobbits as they really are small. No shower gel or shampoo, had to go out and buy some. Breakfast was basically the cheapest of everything you could imagine, i only had it once and ate else where the other 2 days. not great, wouldnt book it again.

Having made it out of the Travelodge alive (but not happy!) I came to the Baytree Lodge. It was at the time being run by a husband and wife team, who were looking after the B&B for their daughter, who was taking a holiday. I could not have been made more welcome, and could not have appreciated the contrast to the Travelodge more.
This B&B is exactly what I needed for my trip - somewhere comfortable, clean and welcoming where I could relax after a long day. It is quite basic, and admittedly the room I had was small, but basic is what I needed, and I would much rather have this version of basic than the Travelodge's any day of the week (and at a cheaper price too)! The breakfast was lovely and set me up perfectly for the day - the managers were so helpful in that respect especially. It's also in a convenient location and takes just 10 minutes to walk to most places within Bangor. I would happily stay again.

This is a contractors lodgings. It is adequate, but extremely basic. The beds are OK - just, but the towels are miniscule and have a strange odour - almost like racid fat. The owner is very friendly, breakfast is OK. I wouldn't knock it too much, but it's definately not for couples or holiday makers.

Room Tip: not recommended unless you're a contractor working somewhere close on business

All that was missing was Bazil himself! Baytree Lodge is like an old worn stage-set from the fifties. My husband, daughter and myself were warmly welcomed when we arrived and shown our triple room. Two double beds and a single were squeezed into the allotted space. We fell over each other in the morning getting ready for the day, causing much marital disharmony and discord. The decor caused much merriment and needs serious rehabilitation. The room was warm. The towels were handkerchief thin and there was no shower gel or shampoo in the bathroom. The shower was in the bath and contained a circular shower curtain which wrapped itself around your body as you showered. There was no hair dryer in the room. The landlady kindly gave us a loan of her own appliance. We eventually found a working socket. The sockets that were visible, were positioned above the bathroom door. 'Bring a very tall partner if staying a la Baytree'. We travelled by ferry to Wales and if we had known prior to the trip, the shortfalls in the toiletries department, we could easily have thrown in towels, gels and a hair-dryer into the car boot. Breakfast consisted of juice, cereals, toast and a cooked meal. The glasses were plastic and the delph and cutlery was mismatched and frail, to say the least. The waiter could not be drawn, in terms of conversation and looked like he had been handed down a life sentance.
Taking on board all of the above, Baytree Lodge was still good value for money, just bring a sense of humour with you when you go and lower your expectations.

Only stayed there because they were cheap. I only hope I did not get any bugs while I was there. The wifi in the rooms was so poor that i had to use the lounge more. The wash basin was cracked and leaked. The bed stands had a blood or red stain. Numerous holes in the duvet cover.

We spent one night and that was okay, but not up to the quality of other B & B's that we stayed at on the same trip in the same price range. Our room was quite dark and the furnishings were old. WiFi didn't work in our room, but was available in the breakfast room. The breakfast was the usual bacon and eggs with cereal as an alternative. Probably would not return if in the Bangor area again.
