Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We finally got to stay at Dolffanog after 2 cancellations during the pandemic. The most brilliant weather together with the tranquility and comfort this place offers made our stay very special indeed. We could not fault the room (spotless), the tranquil atmosphere, brilliant breakfast and accommodating owners. Thank you for a lovely stay. We will return.

A very pleasant stay. Alex & Loraine are very welcoming. Breakfast excellent with high quality ingredients, well-cooked. Wnion Room was very clean, comfortable and quiet, though bed was rather firm. House surrounded by beautiful scenery: Lots to explore on a short break, though you really need a car to get the best out of Snowdonia. For evening meals, there is a good pub and a hotel restaurant, both only a few minutes drive away. Overall, great place, great stay; will likely visit again!

We came here for a couple of nights, mid-week short getaway. Our room was wonderful and very nicely decorated, had a very good choice of hot drinks and some shortbread in the room, everything was spotlessly clean and thoughtfully taken care of. The environment friendly toiletries were a refreshingly nice touch. Alex and Lorraine were lovely hosts, and gave us lots of tips on restaurants and things to do nearby. They really care for the place and their guests, which is obvious from their attention to detail and how well managed everything is. The breakfast was incredible, all ingredients are sourced locally and they also have vegan/veggie options if you ask for them. We would definitely recommend it and will come back for sure!

Our stay in Dolffanog Fawr was outstanding. Not only the owners were helpful and welcoming, they also went far and beyond to make us feel comfortable. Their place has a homey feeling without loosing any details, its like a five star hotel-home. We loved it. The rooms are spacious, clean and tidy. The views are incredible and the breakfast was outstanding.

Alex and Lorraine should be incredibly proud of their business. Dolffanog Fawr is a gorgeous guest house furnished and equipped comfortably and tastefully. The breakfasts were delicious, home cooked with local produce. It's location, pretty much at the foot of Cader Idris and next to Tal-Y-Llyn lake, is jaw droppingly beautiful. I looked at the unpolluted sky at night and felt a peace I rarely feel! Oh, and the owners dogs, a pair of beautiful flat haired retrievers, are an added bonus! Thank you 😃

We previously stayed at this superb B&B in 2019 and always vowed to return. Only the pandemic prevented us from returning sooner, but it was well worth the wait. If anything, the Dolffanog Fawr has got even better. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Lorraine and Alex remain fantastic hosts. The breakfasts are simply superb, with a great choice and the location is simply to die for, with peace and quiet and scenic beauty all around you and yet you are within striking distance to amenities, the coast, etc. A truly winning formula.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful place for 2 nights early September. From the location to the building and it's surroundings could not fault anything. The owners were so friendly and attentive, we had everything we needed and more to make this mini break away a lovely relaxing one. You can literally be as active or kick back and relax as you want. A little bonus too which we thoroughly enjoyed was the outdoor hot tub taking in the amazing views watching the sun go down. We would recommend and would love to return in the future.
