“A grand Stay at Dros y Dwr”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We are from Germany and on the way to Ireland, we stayed for 2 nights in June 2012.
The B&B has lovely and charming rooms, everything clean and a great view to the river, the bridge, the harbour and the sea. We were familiary welcome by Jupp and John and enjoyed the tasty full English breakfast, the afternoon tea and the homemade bread beked by John himself.
We got much phantastic informtaion about Barmouth, Wales etc. and we loverd the very friendly atmosphere. We'll hope, we had not been at Dros y Dwr the last time.
Thank you very much, Jupp and John

I knew that this was going to be a lovely stay from the moment that we arrived and spotted a glowing Galle lamp in the hallway! John and Jupp have got it spot-on in this beautifully presented guest house. This house retains great characater and period appeal whilst feeling contemporary and stylish. The spacious and uncluttered feeling of the rooms has a timeless elegance. You simply relax into the clean and open space of the rooms, Rather than cramming four rooms into each floor the rear rooms, which would otherwise have been small and dark, have been made into en-suite dressing rooms and bathrooms. Each room has a huge amount of space to circulate in which, combined with the spectacular views from the large bay windows, gives you a feeling of space, openness and wellbeing. You definitely know that you are at the seaside !

John and Jupp gave us a really warm welcome, great coffee, cake and breakfast and John's encyclopaedic knowledge of the town gave us an added dimension to our visit. All in all this was a very special stay in a thoughfully planned guest house. We shall certainly return.

We stayed for 2 nights, the house is tastefully decorated throughout, everything clean, new and to a high standard with harbour views. As there are only 3 rooms you feel like you are staying in John & Jupps home rather than a B&B. They are extremely welcoming, on arrival we were offered afternoon tea & homemade cake, delicious! They are happy to help in any way and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts were wonderful, with homemade bread, jams and marmalade with as much as you wanted, we definately didn't go hungry! They also have 2 gorgeous, very friendly dogs which if you are a dog lover they'll come and say hello, (but don't come into the main areas if you don't like dogs.) Highly recommended.

I have just arrived back from staying at the B&B in Barmouth “Dros y Dŵr” & I now write about my stay. I had missed my train back to London & thus had to stay in Barmouth for 1 (Tuesday) night. Having previously looked at the Trip Advisor reviews, it was a toss-up between “Dros y Dŵr” & “Sunray Guest House”. I decided to phone “Dros y Dŵr” first, maybe because breakfast was included. Jupp answered the phone & there was a room available. 30 minutes later, I was greeted by Jupp. Jupp showed me my room & it was certainly a lot larger & newer than expected with a fabulous view over the estuary & sea. Jupp treated me to complimentary filter coffee with fruit cake. The coffee was absolutely fantastic.
Barmouth is a very picturesque place, particularly around the harbor & estuary, but it is almost like a semi-ghost town awaiting the next influx of “new industries” (whatever they might be) to fill the numerous empty shops that are scattered around.
In the morning, I had a lovely full English breakfast in the company of my hosts John & Jupp. The actual food was very well presented & delicious. The only question mark I have, was the actually “cooking oil” that the food was cooked in. I had an “after taste” that I am sure was contributable to the cooking oil. Perhaps I am splitting hairs. Great company & a great visit. Many thanks to John & Jupp.

A wonderfull weekend getaway, sitting in the bay windows of this lovely house and watching the light change across the estuary was wonderful. Taking the panoramic walk and geocaching in the mawddach estuary with the sun gleaming on the snowy crest of Cadair Idris just added gilt to the lily.

We would recommend staying at Dros y Dwr to anyone and everyone.

Room Tip: The two "bay windowed" rooms on the first floor have views to die for!

We were travelling through Wales during August Bank Holiday and decided to look for a B&B on spec. We had the room overlooking the bay, wow! I wished I could have moved in here, a beautifully decorated and spacious room and a fabulous view of the bay, complete with two chairs and a table to sit and admire the vista. The best part of our stay was the fabulous hosts who made us a pot of tea and the most delicious fruit cake ever. The breakfast was the best we had ever had, and we have stayed at some top hotels in the world but the breakfast here could never be beaten. A sumptuous cooked breakfast, home made breads and home made preserves. Also lots of fresh soft fruits and yogurt. There is a lovely reading room upstairs with a good selection of books with lots on the local area. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming and have a good knowledge of the area with walks and places of interest. This is well situated and is only a short stroll from the town with good restaurants and facilities. We will be definately coming back next year. This is such a gem and is one to definately give a try, One other plus point is there is no television, we made some tea and sat relaxing taking in the beautiful view and had the most relaxing peaceful stay. See you again next year!!

Beautiful room with bay window and ocean view; scrumptious breakfasts--cooked just as you like them; fascinating hosts; gorgeous walks right out the front door. Wish we had been there longer. Our favorite place on our 2 week vacation. Would definitely go back. Perfect in every way.

Room Tip: All rooms are great & have view.
