Absolutely loved it and can see us returning!
Date of stay: 14th June 2019
We stayed in an (the?) Ogwen Lodge Plus.The accommodation was very good,seemed to have been recently refurbished, a lot of the things in the lodge (sofa, table, carpets, fireplace) seemed to be brand new, although some (like the wooden blinds and shower rails) were not (and were a tiny bit fragile). Nice touch was a carton of milk in the fridge awaiting our arrival.
Site was quiet; quite picturesque (esp. with the backdrop of the quarry and the centrepiece of the raging river Ogwen, staff were friendly and responsive to any issues. Some reviews mention having to walk down the busy road to get to the village, but it's also possible to walk through the site to get there. The site also borders a country walking/biking trail which I think is built on the former quarry railway line.
Not many amenities on the site - duckpond and restaurant, but we weren't looking for any. Restaurant was a curious feature as it wasn't very clear when it was going to be open. We went there as a family one night, and enjoyed a reasonable meal (limited menu), but I have to say that personally I was sick as a dog afterwards (everyone else was okay), so find it difficult to recommend.
We would definitely stay here again, based on the quality and cleanliness of the lodge, but would probably give the restaurant a miss.

Pod is perfect for a couples break. Hot tub was lovely and we had an amazing view of the river. Only thing I would say is you need to take handwash and washing up liquid as there is none there. They provided a few tea bags, pint of milk and a couple of sachets of sugar.

Date of stay: 4th May 2015
Would definately stay here again.... Perfect little family holiday
Date of stay: 18th April 2015
Our lodge (11) had a very tired sofa, but the bed was good. Amazed to have a dishwasher and washing machine - neither of which we used. The lodge was lovely and warm, but we were not allowed to adjust the boiler to switch off over night - it kept firing up for a few minutes really frequently which was annoying when trying to sleep as the boiler was next to the bedroom. We got used to it by the 3rd night though! The lodges are in a better location on the site than the caravans which appeared to be a lot closer together. The switch on the kettle had to be held down to boil water and there was no chopping board other than a bread board. We also had to buy a cheap oven tray. If the owners addressed these minor issues we could give it a 10!
Date of stay: 11th April 2015
The Lodge itself was brilliant, we cannot fault it at all, we will be staying in one again, some of the best nights sleep I have ever had
Date of stay: 10th April 2015

Stayed in lodge No.1 - cannot fault it, very warm and spacious. It has its own car space.
If I was to nitpick, it needs a larger floormat at the door so you dont walk dirty shoes on the pale carpets.

Nice lodge, good size for 6, sofas had seen better days think the springs had gone, it was a bit tight on seating in the lounge area, unless someone sat on the floor or on a kitchen chair, over all though very nice
Stayed in a pod, lovely modern clean accommodation for my daughter and myself. Great walks from the site and perfect for visiting zip world. Would go there again.
a warm welcome from really lovely, helpful staff. nice lodge right beside the river, lots of birds and squirrels right outside the lodge, very relaxing to watch. perfect location for us. nice walks from the lodge so didn't need to use the car everyday. penryhn castle was fascinating, just a 10 minute drive. Anglesey is a lovely island to explore, and very close. Bethesda itself is a small town with shops including a small Tesco for milk etc, 10 minutes walk from lodge. so much to see and do , highly recommend.
We were there 2weeks ago during the snow.We had no water as it was frozen ,the staff were amazing bringing us water in barrels.We had to stay an extra night due to trees blown down and blocking the road (This was not charged for)We had a wonderful time will definitely go back wonderful lodge very clean ,warm and comfortable and great staff This was our second visit but will definitely not be our last .
Fantastic time cabins,staff everything was amazing
