    Isallt Guest House, built of Welsh stone and slate, is a large detached Victorian house built around 1870 for the local Doctor. It has been used for many purposes since, but was converted to a guest house and coffee shop in 1999.

    All rooms have en-suite accommodation, TV, video, tea/coffee making facilities and hairdryer, etc. A new slate terrace has recently been added which offers a spectacular view of the Moelwyn Mountains.

    Isallt is in the centre of Blaenau Ffestiniog with bus and rail transport, shops, pubs, cafes, restaurants, banks, post office, and the local tourist office, etc., all within just a short walk. It is situated adjacent to the world famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway and close to the Llechwedd Slate Caverns.

    There are many walks from Isallt and Blaenau is ideally situated to tour the Snowdonia National Park. It is just a short drive from Portmeiron, the Snowdonia towns of Betwsy-Coed, Llanberis and Beddgelert and the Castles of Harlech, Criccieth, Caernarfon and Conway. There are also blue flag beaches, fishing and golf within half an hour drive.

    Blaenau Ffestiniog developed in the mid 19th century as a slate mining town and at the beginning of the 20th century, 4000 of the town's men were employed in the slate industry. The town has much to remind visitors of this Victorian enterprise and of old Welsh life, including the slate caverns and the Ffestiniog railway that was built to transport the slate to the harbour at Porthmadog.

    Today there is a lively community life in the town with clubs, societies, bands and male voice choirs.

    Blaenau Ffestiniog is at the heart of an area unsurpassed in natural beauty and is the ideal base for touring the Snowdonia National Park by car, bicycle or on foot. Beaches, castles and many of North Wales' attractions are just a short drive or bus journey away.

    The slate caverns provide a fascinating insight in to the world of the Victorian miner with an opportunity to take a guided tour on the miner's tramway or a deep mine tour. Then wander through the Victorian village, where pub and shops use specially minted Victorian coins.

    The unique and world famous Ffestiniog narrow gauge steam railway runs along a 13 mile line as it descends 700 feet through tranquil pastures and magnificent forests, past lakes and waterfalls, round horseshoe bends and a complete spiral.

    Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you drive on one of Snowdonia's highest roads on a visit to the Stwlam Dam and the Hydro centre. This area has some of the best rock climbing in Snowdonia. Fish for trout or savour the tranquillity and fresh air, walking one of the many walks in the mountains around Blaenau or along the vale of Ffestiniog.

    The town has a library, leisure centre, swimming pool and nearby is a dry ski slope.
