“Beautiful and very peaceful....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

The hotel is a very peaceful place in North Wales. The hotel looks onto Lake Vyrnwy, a beautiful lake. The hotel has beautiful views of the lake and of the countryside around it. The rooms are very pretty and so is the interior of the hotel. The food is delicious. The gym is open regularly with also a view of the lake. The breakfast is very nice but pity the vacuuming took place during breakfast time.... Although the place is delightful and I advise you to go!

Room Tip: The lake view is gorgeous and so is the country suite.

We stayed for a family birthday celebration. Staff are excellent location stunning with amazing lake views. Food is out of this world. Amazing different and well presented. I had a goats cheese and merangue starter which was kust amazing. Breakfast is also fantastic cooked to order.
Rooms are nice. Beds comfortable.My only comment is they were a little dusty but clean otherwise. Great toiletries as well.
If you stay for lunch in the bistro you have to try the locally sourced burger...amazing !
Would definatly recommend this place for a relaxing break or a base for an active walk/bike ride.

Pleasant, helpful staff. Lovely view of lake from bedroom, bathroom and dining room. Good breakfast - especially the sausage. With the posh cutlery etc I felt that linen napkins would have been better. Pleasantly dog friendly hotel. Paid extra for dog to stay in room but he could have stayed for free in heated kennels. Places to walk dog on the doorstep. Housekeeping staff helpful and attentive. Room window surrounds could have done with a good scrub for better presentation. Good idea to have soft toy to leave outside door when you didn't want to be disturbed.

had a lovely stay at Vyrnwy hotel, it was my husband birthday and they made it very special, he had chocs and a card in the room, the meal and service was excellent and so are the staff.
my husband had a clay shoot for an hour and really enjoyed it, I used the spa which was so relaxing and had a beauty treatment a little expensive but worth it.

Room Tip: ask for a lake view

If you would like a view to dream of, worthy of the Alps, but don't want to travel overseas, then this is the place for you. The view is, simply, incredible. Breathtaking. It's like going to another world ... but better. Only an hour and a bit from home we truly felt like we should have travelled for hours to get to enjoy something so wonderful. Yes, it's a bit dated, but in the face of such beauty who cares? The staff are lovely. The food is wonderful. Sitting in the jacuzzi at sunset was such perfection you wonder what good deed you did in the past to get to experience such a delight? It makes you want to continue to do good deeds in the future!!

Room Tip: If you can afford a room with a lake facing terrace then do it ... Otherwise I wouldn't bother...

We visted the Hotel last weekend to attend a friend's wedding. As I'm originally from the general area I already knew what sort of views were awating me and my girlfriend. The first thing i need to say about the hotel is how exceptionally friendly and helpful the staff were. They really made us feel welcome. Our room was really nice and spacious and the balcony was an added bonus. I think we were in the new wing of the hotel We had paid a little extra to use the spa which turned out to be good value and really relaxing, shame there was no pool but the hot tub was good and was a good way to relax before a night of partying. The Spa was a little hard to find so maybe that could be improved. My one and only real criticism of the place is the fact that they have a dress code. I found this hard to believe. There was a note in the welcome pack which advised that they encourage smart dress but will not enforce jacket and tie however, they will not allow shorts. Who do they think they are to tell me what i can wear when I'm paying to stay there, this was also not something they mention when you book. I find it shocking in this day and age. Other than that, a great place.

We stayed here for our wedding anniversary in March 2014 and could not have enjoyed our stay any more. Great food, drink, atmosphere and spa. Exclusive enough to keep out the rif raf, but still great value.

Make sure you get a lake view however, we did and had a nice 4-poster bed and woke up both mornings to the most amazing view!

Thank you for writing such a kind review – I am delighted that you had the chance to enjoy so many of the things that we have to offer at Lake Vyrnwy Hotel.

We’re a little biased, but think you’d be hard pressed to find a room with a better view!
I certainly hope that you will return to the lake the next time you are in need of a relaxing break.
