Lonely Planet review
About 400m east of the ridge crest at Penlyne Castle, this hardwood structure has 36 bunks in basic rooms with communal bathrooms with solar-heated water, plus three appealing private rooms with private bathrooms downstairs. A two-bedroom cottage at the bottom of the garden sleeps up to six. An atmospheric dining room has hammocks on the veranda and faces southeast down the mountain. Breakfasts cost about US$5; lunch and dinner cost US$6.50. You have use of a large but basic kitchen. The lodge offers horseback rides and guides for the climb.
