“Another wonderful stay”
Reviewed 30 August 2011

This was our second visit to Bryn Mair and it was as perfect as the first time back in April, and the weather was even marginally kinder.

Jan and Pete are great hosts and they made us feel very welcome. When we arrived we were served a pot of tea and an extremely tasty lemon cake (watch out Mary Berry!)

The breakfast was top notch and the bacon, eggs, mushrooms and sausage helped to fuel us for the walks and bike ride that I dragged my husband on.

Our room (number 1) had a lovely outlook across Dolgellau and was very comfortable.

Thanks again Jan and Pete for a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Very warm welcome at this b&b. The rooms are spacious and to a very high standard.excellent choice of breakfast; cooked breakfast was particularly good. We used the b&b as a base to explore snowdonia.

Just returned from four nights' stay here, having chosen Bryn Mair, based on previous guests' comments on Tripadvisor. It really is as good as they say and the couple who run it could not be more friendly or helpful.
The rooms are as lovely as the views over Dolgellau from Bryn Mair's elevated position and the breakfasts were a treat - generous portions of locally sourced, high quality food, cooked to perfection.
Highly recommended if you are staying in this area.

My partner and I have stayed at numerous B&Bs around the UK and thought Bryn Mair House was the perfect example of how a great B&B should be run. From the moment we made our reservation Jan and Pete were wonderful hosts. Before our arrival they sent through details of the property and a list of near-by restaurants in case we wanted to book in advance. On our arrival they were extremely welcoming, taking their time to show us the property and recommending their favourite walks/mountain climbs/pubs. Bryn Mair is a short (3min) walk into town and has a great garden and guest lounge - both of which we used. The bedrooms and bathrooms are both spacious and well designed, and it's fair to say Jan and Pete have a great eye for detail. My partner and I are both foodies and were thrilled with the breakfasts which were both generous in their size and delicious. Bryan Mair is somewhere we'd happily recommend to friends and family - or anyone travelling to Dolgellau.

We stayed in this delightful B&B whilst on a property seach in the area (shame this place was not for sale!). The public areas are very elegantly furnished and decorated as indeed was our room. We chose room one with a double aspect and fantastice views of the valley, hills and town. Extremely comfortable bed with high quality Egyptian cotton bed linen, a very stylish wet room and lots of thoughtful extras.

The breakfast was one of the best I have encountered over many years of travelling the globe using very high quality ingredients and efficient and friendly service.

Great value for money (an all too rare occurence these days!). Would most definitely stay again.

We stayed here last Saturday - sadly for one night only. We had a whistle stop trip to Snowdonia and booked the Bryn Mair because of the great reviews - and we weren't disappointed

The welcome was very friendly, with tea and amazing Lemon Drizzle cake. The room was spotless, with high quality fittings and furnishings and views to die for!

After a great Indian meal at the recommended local restaurant, we had a superb night's sleep in a very comfortable bed

Breakfast the next morning was really lovely - scrambled eggs and smoked salmon - well presented, very fresh and just enough (I hate being over-faced and the portion size was perfect)

We were very jealous of the other guests who had more nights left to stay as we drove off that morning. We've promised Jan and Peter, ourselves and some friends, that "we'll be back" - hoepfulyl very soon
