“Fantastic Long Weekend in Dolgellau”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

We had a fantastic 3 nights here staying with Pete and Jan in their lovely house. We took bikes with us to cycle the Mawddach trail to Barmouth and back, stunning scenery. Pete helped us lock our bikes away in secure storage for days when we just wanted to do some hiking. Cakes on arrival were delicious and the Full welsh breakfast was also an excellent reason to get up each day, Although I must say my Body didn't want to get up with the bed being so comfortable especially after hiking up Calder Idris. I have never spent much time in this area before but would gladly recommend it. We also had some excellent meals at nearby restaurants in the area (Bwyty Mawddach, Indiana & Bistro Bermo)

My husband and I stayed at the very classy Bryn Mair House for 2 nights. Our room, No. 3, was very spacious and elegantly decorated with plenty of attention to detail. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room with fresh milk and complimentary water provided in a small fridge on the landing. Our private and huge bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower was across the hall. I was initially a little concerned about crashing into other guests whilst in a state of undress but robes and slippers are provided to protect your decency. Bed was huge and very comfortable. Great views from an excellent location. Very easy walking distance into the town but be aware that it's all uphill on the way back. Breakfast was tasty and beautifully presented with a choice of full cooked or a slightly lighter option. Guest lounge very relaxing. Jan and Peter are very welcoming and provide useful local information.

This an incredibly friendly and very elegant B and B. The bedrooms are large and beautifully decorated and at the front have views across the town to the mountains. We were served homemade cakes on our arrival and the breakfast was excellent

We have just returned from spending 2 nights at Bryn Mair in Dolgellau with grandparents and children and thought it was excellent - we will definitely stay here again next time we visit north Wales. Thank you very much to Jan, Peter and Molly - great breakfasts, great rooms and very welcoming - it was all we could have asked for.

I have stayed all over the world from campsites to 5 star all inclusives in the Caribbean but I have never enjoyed a night away as much as I did last weekend at Bryn Mair House. After a great day walking on Cadair Idris my wife and I were greated by Jan and were soon sat in the lovely guest lounge enjoying a big pot of tea, fresh coffee and home made welsh cakes! Jan's welcome and enthusiasm is infectious! The ambience is just perfect, lovely decor, a stereo to use in the guest lounge, antique telescope for viewing the mountains, coal fire lit, great views, newspaper and a pile of interesting books and magazines to flick through.
Our bedroom was fantastic - crisp sheets, spotless, tasteful decor, dressing gowns.... we had plumped for the largest room with a seperate private bathroom across the landing with a seperate shower and roll top bath. In a fridge hidden on the landing Jan (or Pete) had put us fresh milk and bottled water and had left enough room for us to chill our wine which we enjoyed later in the lounge after a meal out in town.
Breakfast was cooked fresh and at a time to suit us so we had a lazy lie in as we were kid free for the weekend! And what a breakfast - fresh fruit salad, greek yoghurt, fruit yoghurts, jugs of juices, cereals, local Snowdonia honey, preserves, and a cooked breakfast as good as I have ever eaten - and I've eaten plenty! Local sausages and dry cure bacon complimented with tomatoes, eggs any style, mushrooms, etc etc.
Then, a fresh flask of tea for us to take on another walk on Sunday - the lovely Precipice Walk as recommended by Jan and Pete.
Our first visit but 100% not our last, if only everywhere we stayed could match here for welcome, cleanliness, ambience, decor, thought (fresh milk, corksrew in room, newspaper....).

Bravo Pete and Jan!

We stayed here for three nights in October. From the minute we arrived everything was fantastic. Delicious homemade afternoon tea, beautiful luxurious bedroom and en-suite wet room and wonderful views. Jan and Pete couldn't have been more helpful and we were really looked after. We have paid far more at other b&b's for not a fraction of the luxury and would definitely recommend this to anyone. Simply fautless.

I have stayed at many b&b's over the years, but only a few stay in my mind as a lovely memory. Bryn Mair house has been added to the list. From the warm welcome on arrival with a reviving cuppa and home-made welshcakes served in the gorgeous lounge, to the beautiful room,comfy bed, fantastic breakfast.......I could go on and on! I wish that we could have stayed longer than just one night. Just go and stay there and see for yourself. Pete and Jan were perfect hosts. Well worth navigating the narrow approach. It cetainly wouldn't ever put us off. We'll be back!
