“Countryside location”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

A charming old property in the countryside with lots of walks nearby. Too far to walk to town. There is a campsite very close by and we had a problem finding a parking space when we returned from town later in the eve. Good breakfast and friendly service. Bedroom decor good, dining room dated.

At the front door are two plaques stating that the property has been rated 4 star! From the outside it looked as though we would be treated to a stay in a traditional farmhouse. Up the dimly lit stairs we were led along a narrow space and to a small door. The flooring was thick and uneven in some places old carpet sticking through from under the new. Inside is accessed by stepping down into a "Hobbit hole". Our beds (twin as we are travelling sisters) had been separated but the floor is so uneven that one of the beds is sloping down ways! The room is dull and old fashioned. No lightbulb in the lamp.
The bathroom is a cave, not wet but no window and pokey.
Once again however, the staff were excellent! Breakfast was good but no discount if you didn't want the full breakfast and were only eating continental!

Room Tip: Make sure your bed is level before getting into it!

Had my second stay here this weekend, stayed in the bunkhouse last year, but stayed in the B&B this year! What a gem! Couldnt fault it. We had a great room, great breakfast, and to top it off it has a great location. We climbed snowdon on sat, then drove back down to dolgellau to stay before climbing cadair idris on sunday! We sat in the garden enjoying the evening sun, even though there were many people in the campsite you couldnt here them from the rooms.

Would definately stay again. Looking forward to coming up to climb cadair idris again and visit coed y brenin.

Thank you

The first thing people should consider when booking this as accommodation is that there is a camp site in the "front garden" of the main building. It was very noisy day and night but the noise in the day was mostly from the owners children.

The location was perfect, views were lovely apart from the people staying in the room next to me, parking their car right outside my door (obviously not the B&B's fault) however, there is a lack of parking and I did have to park in the camp site.

Most staff were friendly but took several attempts to get my checking out details correct and made out that it was my mistake, saying I wasn't in that room when I had the key in my hand showing them - found this slightly rude!

Breakfast was lovely however I was shoehorned into a corner where I couldn't get my chair out and had to literally climb into my seat.

Finally, my room. The bathroom was lovely and modern, no problems there and the bed was comfortable, however the blinds do not cover the window and being on the ground floor I was conscience that someone could look into my room, the fridge (which I was grateful for to cool my drinks) was leaking due to the freezer department being totally frozen. When reported, I was accused of leaving it open which I did not. The room was clean apart from the box of half eaten Malteasers left in the bedside draw of a previous guest!

So if you are looking for somewhere to simply "put your head down" and have a breakfast, this place would be fine but I was left very disappointed with my stay and would not return or recommend to others.

Have stayed here twice now and have been happy on both occasions. We used the bunk rooms and these were comfy and clean. Washrooms were good and clean and there is all the facilities you could need. The kitchen could be better but was good enough for making some breakfast. We even had the room to put our motorbikes under some shelter as you never know when it might rain in Wales! The town is a bit of a walk if you want to eat out or have a beer in a local pub. The real attraction of this place though is the scenic back drop you find with the rolling hills, farm land and animals. It is worth the distance from town. It is a really lovely spot and a great place to wake up in when on a clear sunny morning.

Lovely country B & B. The family room had kitchen amenities and sofa bed for extra bed space. Great for children, as being April they spent time with the newborn lambs. Good breakfast, local produce. Some amazing walks and smaller peaks to climb if your children are too young to climb Mount Snowdon. However, the room was quite small and we struggled to find room for walking equipment and boots and as its in the middle of nowhere you cannot walk to a pub to eat, so you may need to bring your own food.
