We booked a week and have ended up leaving early house was so dirty hair everywhere dishes had food on them sugar all over the work tops obviously wasn't cleaned before we arrived just the bed made up I think I luckily had spare blanket's with me as I didn't want to sleep in the bed after seeing the rest of the house bathroom was also unclean . Drive way said small to medium Sized car my car isn't big and didn't fit so had to try park across the road but that was full also in front of the house is a bus depo so 5:30am you hear every person and bus trying to squeeze in and out of there not really relaxing when you on holiday listening to all that in the morning and again at night. Yes there was a bottle of wine and cake left for us which I would normally think is a nice touch but I would of honestly preferred the house to be clean all this felt like it ruined our holiday a waste of money feel ripped off.

Yr Hen Olchfa was such a lovely property to stay in. It was really homely and made the difference in enjoying our break away. The property was of a very high standard, had lots of little extras and is situated in an ideal location.

The cottage was very comfortable; a home from home which was warm and inviting. We would definitely like to stay again in the future. Thank you for such a wonderful weekend stay.

Yr Hen Olchfa os a wonderful property, very homely and welcoming and facilities that went beyond anything I've been to before. The owner was incredibly kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent location right in the heart of Bala.

Just spent a week at yr hen olchfa and found it very cosy. It was very well equipped so you don,t need to take any utensils with you in fact it had everything you would need and more. The parking was a bit tight even for a fiesta but I used the open parking across the road with no problem. The property is ideal if you want a base to travel around North Wales or if you just want to stay local being just off the high street. Recommend the white lion for a meal out. All in all a very nice property.
