Lovely stay and lovely owners

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 4 Apr 2024
Massive thank you to the owners of Dolafon for a lovely stay. The rooms were clean and comfortable, delicious breakfasts each morning. The owners could not be more accommodating, asked us each day if there was anything they could get us. Tea and coffee facilities on hand to help yourself to at your own pleasure. Prime location for hikers too! The track for Snowdon only a ten minute walk away and stunning views around the lake, plus the castle, waterfall and slate museum all within walking distance. Thank you again! Will definitely be back in the future and recommend to friends and family.

My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and absolutely loved Dolafon Guest House. The hosts were lovely and welcoming, our room was large, warm and comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. An added bonus was the complimentary tea, coffee, milk and biscuits and onsite parking.

Room tip: Free onsite parking, stairs, book early for Mt Snowdon train

This is how all guest houses should be.
Lovely big house with masses of off street parking right in the middle of Llanberis.
A warm welcome as soon as we arrived and a full tour and explanation of the room and all the services available.
Big comfy bed and plenty of room plus an ensuite toilet and bathroom.
Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits all freely available.
Top quality breakfast, lots of options all beautifully prepared and cooked. The overnight oats option was brilliant, just what I needed before walking up Yr Wyddfa.
Nothing was too much trouble and really enjoyed my five day stay.
Prices were more than reasonable and if we return to explore more of North Wales we will definitely book a stay at the Dolafon Guest House again.

Room tip: Book early!

What a lovely place to stay. The hospitality was great.
Stayed for a trio of evenings in August with plans to run the mountains up to Yr Wyddfa.
Very welcoming from the minute we arrived. The room was cute. Everything was more than good enough for the 4 days we were there. Breakfast was perfect. Could not have asked for anything more from this summer getaway.
Run by a family who were always on hand for anything you needed. So grateful for such treatment. Selfless. Definitely recommend staying here and I would say we would be staying here again when back in Llanberis. Close to the village, all that you need is within walking distance. Nice places to walk such as around the Llyn Padarn lake, up the trails through Dinorwig quarry or straight up Snowdon via the Llanberis Path.
Pubs, shops, restaurants and places to sit outside and drink are all within the vicinity.
Enjoyed this one. Thank you!

Room tip: Free parking on-site, everything you need is very much nearby. Perfect location.

An amazing experience, from the minute we walked in the door to leaving today, the hospitality was just so welcoming and so warm. The food was great and room was very homely. Great hosts and really close to mount Snowdon.

Room tip: Go to Mount Snowdon and climb it, the experience Is amazing!
