White Lion Royal Hotel

White Lion Royal HotelThe White Lion Royal Hotel, built 1752, reopened after extensive renovation to a 4 star Coaching Inn standard. Close to Snowdonia National Park (an area of outstanding natural beauty) and the Lake District of North Wales. Straddling the A494 Dolgellau road, The White Lion Royal Hotel is ideally situated for touring North and Mid Wales. One would have difficulty finding a location as well situated as the Bala area, the Lake District of North Wales. The hotel has been completely refurbished, bringing it up to 4 star coaching inn standard. The White water rafting centre is nearby, we are one of the closest hotels. We would advise booking a table at the same time as room as restaurant is very popular.
