Dovey Inn
Ranked #7 of 11 Aberdovey B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 May 2013

We lunched here with our daughter on Friday 10th of May and were a little disappointed. Maybe the weather did not help but the place was very quiet and we saw more staff than customers. The atmosphere was distinctly lacking and the food although it sounded appealing on the menu was nothing special, maybe we were just unlucky. We would visit againwhen are in Aberdovey to give the place another chance.

We had a friendly reception, and were shown up to a decent size of room with an excellent view our over the Dovey estuary. The room was comfortably furnished with all mod cons, and exceptionally well soundproofed so that sleep was undisturbed by noises from the bar or from outside.

Our evening meal was passable: tasty baked fish, good chips but overcooked vegetables accompanied by adequate wine and an excellent pint of bitter. We were more than happy with our full British breakfast including all the essentials and a generous cafetiere of fresh coffee.

Room Tip: Our room on the second floor front had excellent views of the estuary, and very quiet in spite of be...

Went to the dovey for a meal with my family. What a mistake, we should have gone to the brit. It was quite a quiet evening with oviosly too much staff on as they were all stood arownd the bar chatting about theyr manager and who he was going to shag next! It sounded like the manager had already had his way with 2 of the girls! Although this was entertaining to hear it really put us off eating so we didnt bother. As for the manager- he never seems to make an appearance. Will not be returning- brains hav gone very down hill

Room Tip: Go to the pub next door! The briannia

Went here with family for a few ales on our last night in Wales.
The place was warm and cosy and tastefully decorated, what's more is that it's dog friendly :)

Really decent selection of ales on tap as well as wine and other drinks!

Would come again :)

We ordered Scampi and when it evenyually came the outside was very crisp and the centre was cold which gave me the impression that it had been cooked in very hot oil. On telling the manager he just said he would pass the comment on to the kitchen.

Stayed at the Dovey Inn on Easter Sunday - we arrived to havoc as they were just trying to clear the pub due to having sewerage issues out the back! Despite all that the manager went out of his way to ensure that we were catered for, even down to ringing up another hotel to book us a table for that evening. Fabulous room with a brilliant view.... unfortunately we couldn't eat there that evening owing to the problems but the breakfast the following morning was first class! On top of that, the manager said that he wasn't going to charge us for the room either - we offered to pay but no, all was free of charge!! Will definately be back..... great place and so nice to be treated well when he was obviously under extreme duress!!

Stayed at the Dovey Inn whilst playing Golf at Aberdovey. The room was clean and tidy and the breakfast good. My evening meal of steak and chips was nice and the staff very helpful and friendly. All in all, for the rate we paid, it was hard to fault anything. Will use again when in the area.
