“Wouldn't bother!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

Was not happy with our stay at the Dolawel, the headboard on the bed in room 1 was filthy, covered in fluff, the room was not serviced at all and when I asked the lady owner why the bed hadn't been made or the cups washed she said she had been busy and actually seemed surprised that I had expected my bed to be made for me! We had booked for 3 nights but cut our stay short and left after 2. This lady could do with a visit from the hotel inspector, as she doesn't seem to know what is expected of her. Breakfast was ok.

Up the hill from the harbor. Somewhat elusive but pleasant enough hostess. Rather unhelpful as we arrived rather wet after walking on the Coastal Path. Surprised the lady of the house offered us no assistance at all. Nicely decorated room. Watch out for the very hot water in the bathroom. Hostess much chattier in the morning. Breakfast was the usual fare and plenty of it. There is a resident rabbit in the kitchen which makes a change. Nothing special but quite satisfactory.

The hosts were very welcoming & friendly.

It's in a great location, only a 5 minute walk to the beach front.

The rooms were very clean, & they were cosy; if a little on the small size for the double bed room we had. The double bed was very soft; comfortable as long as you don't move about to much.

Nice breakfast, with a good choice, & the hosts were flexible in the breakfast times.

Overall a very pleasant stay & will certainly be going back

Great B&B with a great location. Very fair rates for what you get.
The breakfast was great, fresh tomato and fresh mushrooms, good choice of cereal and drinks to order. Our 4 year old also was given a choice of what she wanted off the cooked breakfast.
The owners are lovely and I'm sure would sort any problems you may encounter.
Our only problem was the room being too warm, so we turned the rads off - no biggie.
The whole place was clean and well presented, will be back again soon.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

We stayed here last weekend for one night after travelling to New Quay on impulse. The location is just a few minutes walk from the harbour. The house is clean and tidy, the bed was comfy but the room was too hot for us and we had to have the window open which meant we heard traffic from early morning.
The breakfast had the smallest eggs and sausages we've ever had in a b&b, a better quality brekkie would have earned an extra star.
The hosts are friendly and welcoming and I would recommend Dolawel for a short stay in New Quay.

Room Tip: check your radiator before retiring!

We stayed in the family room which was nicely decorated and laid out. The double bed was not the most comfortable and the door into the bathroom had see through panes which is not ideal when you have your teenage child staying with you. Apart from that the Dolawel is a great place to stay, with a full breakfast and Mr & Mrs Evans are very pleasant hosts.

I recently stayed at Dolawel and was not impressed to find that the double bedded room booked had been given to other guests. Instead a twin bedded room was provided with the most uncomfortable beds I have ever slept in. The rooms were not serviced during the day so the cups provided for tea and coffee have to be washed by guests in the bathroom sink. Don't bother booking here.
