Stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter break. We had been here 8 years ago, enjoyed our visit then and it was long overdue for a return.
Dolffanog Fawr is an extremely relaxing and comfortable guest house is a super position at the foot of Cadair Idris. On arrival we were shown to our room Mawddach, this is a lovely room at the front of the house and has the benefit of having a bath, great for a soak after walking on the hills all day. Lorraine meanwhile made us a fresh cup of tea which was served in the lounge.
Alex and Lorraine are lovely hosts and they are accompanied by their young son Morgan and Oggie the flat coated retriever.
Downstairs is a comfortable lounge with fire where you relax with coffee and mints after the meal. The meals are served at a communal table in the dining room.. The food is excellent and non meat eaters are well catered for. It is very pleasant to chat to your fellow guests whilst enjoying your evening meal. In fact it is great to see that all the guests staying on Saturday evening have posted to Tripadvisor.
There are seats in the garden where you can sit and have a beer and take in the view, or the more energetic may want to play with Oggie .
This is a super guesthouse, great rooms, super food, good company and an excellent location. Do not think we will leave it 8 years befor we return again.
