Our Friday and Saturday night rates include continental breakfast, and are often one of the reasons bride & grooms choose Bala Bay Inn for their wedding. Saturday night only bookings are welcomed (i.e. we do not have a standard 2 night minimum that many resorts in the area enforce). As a matter of fact we would be pleased to offer substantial discounts for Fridays nights to entice your guests to make a weekend event of your wedding.
