Centrally located, good for a meal and pint of 'Glyndwr' Aug 22, 2017
The White Lion is an attractive old pub very close to Machynlleth's Clock Tower (it's 7 minutes walk from the train station and has a large carpark behind it if you're driving). Room prices are reasonable (much more so if you're sharing). As advertised, my double room was on the small side but was en-suite, it had a comfortable bed and a modern shower with loads of hot water, despite being behing a pub it was pleasantly quiet, all for £60 per night. Unfortunately the wi-fi connection was very poor and the TV had limited channels. I wasn't the only person who had to leave their room, or go down to the bar, to access the internet! On top of that the bed linen was very 'tired', a bulb in one of the bedside lamps was blown, someone left the external door to the room unlocked and ajar on Day 2.

Fortunately The White Lion appeared to be well run as a pub, on a mid week evening it was buzzing with people eating and drinking. The beer was good and the food menu was extensive. It was good (for me, a South Walian) to hear the young bar staff talking with one another in Welsh! Breakfast the following morning was very good. Overall the bar/breakfast staff were helpful, eager and polite.

I'd give 3 stars for The White Lion. Maybe I'd visit again to eat/drink, but try somewhere else to stay next time.

Aye, always nice to overhear people chatting in Welsh, which you sadly don't get so much in the South, I know! My Welsh is certainly very limited...
