“Lovely, last minute stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

Found this charming B&B by chance and had a lovely stay. At the last minute we decided to set off on our 300 mile trip to Pembrokeshire on Friday afternoon, instead of doing the full journey on the Saturday as we have done in the past. We didn't have anywhere planned to stay, just decided to stop when we were tired and find somewhere. We got to Dolgellau at 7.30pm and had had enough so tried our luck in town, having driven round twice we just didn't like the look of the accommodation available. However, a few minutes outside town we came across a signpost for Dolgun Uchaf and drove straight past! A few moments later we found the Crossed Foxes pub and tried our luck there. They were full but kindly rang Dolgun Uchaf for us, secured a room and back we went. What a lovely place! The room was beautiful, so well appointed and comfortable and Eleanor was so warm and friendly, despite us disturbing her into the evening. We had a very peaceful night's sleep, and a great breakfast next morning too. Will definitely use Dolgun Uchaf again to break our journey.

Stayed April 2013, travelled with family

Spent a week in this two bedroom self catering cottage which was formerly a converted stable. We were greeted by an incredibly helpful girl who very proudly gave us a tour of our accommodation. It was very modern and beautifully equipped and we particularly liked the open plan downstairs. It was spotlessly clean and no detail had been overlooked. My only criticism was that there were no bath mats but we did have soft fluffy towels and the shower was amazing. We had a little patio and grassed area outside and ample car parking. I can imagine sitting outside in the summer enjoying a drink and the view as the sun goes down and hope to experience that in the future.

There is plenty of walking to be done nearby and we were happy to be able to cycle on very quiet lanes up to Coed y Brenin to enjoy the mountain biking there. There is also a very impressive disused railway cycle/walking track from Dolgellau to Barmouth where there is a beautiful, sandy beach.

Our only regret is that we had to leave after a week!

We spent two wonderful nights in the beautifully appointed cottage which we were allocated after booking as B &B. The cottage was expensively renovated and fitted and there was wonderful attention to detail that ensured we lacked for nothing. The beautifully decorated and furnished bedroom had a king size bed, stripped beams, flat screen tv and immaculately clean, well appointed bathroom. Downstairs was a perfectly lovely dining kitchen with great views of Snowdonia, plus an exterior dining table on a private terrace, also with lovely views. Breakfast was lavish and of excellent quality, with plenty of fresh fruit, cereals, and freshly cooked full English breakfast. We would certainly recommend it to friends and would love to return.

Room Tip: The cottage was idyllic, warm, spotlessly. Lean and welcoming.

Really enjoyed our stay at this charming B&B. Had a lovely relaxed night in the apartment flat where our two small dogs were made welcome. Picked this B&B primarily because it was dog friendly and close to Cadair Idris, but would stay here again with/without dogs.

Great location but not the four star that was advertised.
Room was clean but felt grubby - shabby walls and ceiling with tacky formica built in cupboards some containing ormaments and lots of cobwebs - the ensuite was very small with no where to put anything and no where to hang wet towels etc.
The wall lights behind the bed were badly positioned (they were designed for a twin room not a double) - one light was broken and hanging on a wire, in the other the bulb didnt work.
The ensuite light above the mirror also didn't work which meant the shaver point/charger wasnt working either.
The staff didnt understand us when we asked questions and there was a lot of noise from the owner's child.
This place advertised private parking but was actaully adjacent to a camp site which it owned so there was no where private to park.
Breakfast was ok but no fresh fruit and some of the yogurts were a few days out of date.
The best thing about this was the location. So glad we only booked one night!

Pretty garden, quaint old house with steep stairs, small room but clean and quiet. Campers were in a field nearby since there are lots of walking trails going out from this spot. Tiny breakfast room but good food. The local town is very pretty. They gave us a reccomendation for dinner there that a relative ran. The restaurant had been a jail several centuries ago and the food was good.

We stayed after attending a wedding just further down the road at Dolserau Hall. What a fantastic place!! A lovely cosy B & B with lovely features. The place was immaculate, so very clean. Our Bathroom was very modern and trendy and our bedroom lovely and cosy. Lovely pretty bedding and big fluffy towels!! All the staff we saw were really friendly and chatty and very helpful. Breakfast was fantastic, lots of choice and proper thick cut bacon and proper filter coffee!!
Even though we arrived early we were still able to get into our rooms and one lovely lady even dashed up the stairs to help me with my case I stood on my dress and got stuck. I can't say enough good things about this place, it made our weekend.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 3
