“first class digs!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2011

arrived friday evening after circumnavigating the weekend traffic to be warmly welcomed by sue and shown sraight to our double en suite(room 2) at the front of the house. great decor with a warm and cosy feeling . sue and elfed were both great hosts, nothing was too much trouble.As we were there to partake in a spot of hillwalking sue suggested a 4mile jaunt that was superb, a map and instructions were duly supplied and we were not disappointed!!
breakfast was great and so was the fireworks display that i paid for!!! (anniversary present for the missus)on the saturday evening(nov 5th!!!**) i think i might have been rumbled!
100% hospitality from two 100% hosts!!

Room Tip: all rooms are to a high standard.

The view from our window was stunning. The owners were especially attentive and provided information about walks and stores we would enjoy.

Stayed in the apartment slightly separate from b&b. Owners were friendly and easy going. Apartment is ideal for group of 4 bikers such as ourselves as had small lounge which was handy for relaxing in before heading to pub, bathroom was bright and clean, with great shower, whilst the two bedrooms were simple but fine for a weekend stop. Bike storage was available and site is part of a caravan park with secure gate and plenty of parking. Short (5 min) walk into town. No complaints, would definitely use again.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a touring holiday in North Wales. Our room (2) was clean, well decorated and had a lovely view of the surrounding hills. The ensuite looked new with a very efficient shower and fluffy white towels.A delicious breakfast was served in the charming dining room by friendly owner Elfed.The B&B was just a 5 min walk into Dolgellau where there were a variety of eating places. This is an ideal location for the many beautiful walks near Dolgellau. We enjoyed our time atTan-Y-Fron and would definitely stay again.

Myself my husband and my mother-in-law stayed here for 3 nights. We were lucky to have booked the "Hendy B & B Apartment" This comprised of two bedrooms - 1 twin room and 1 room which could either be a twin bedded room or a king size We also had a lounge to relax in and a small fridge for our own use which was ideal. The bathroom was a very good size with a large walk-in shower. Elfed & Sue made us very welcome. Breakfast was served in the main house where there are also 3 bedrooms. On site were spaces for touring caravans and also camping facilities. Barmouth is 8 miles away however Dolgellau is just a 15 minutes walk away. The weekend was really relaxing with beautiful views all around. Will definately return when holidaying in Wales

We stayed at the Tan-y-fron during a mountain bike trip around North Wales. We were unfortunate enough to get caught in some wet weather which left our cycling gear pretty soaked. The owner took our boots and made sure they were dried out for our next day of cycling, for which we were very grateful.

Our room was very nice, especially the bathroom. We usually stay elsewhere around Dolgellau, but since that place was full, we stayed here, and I have no regrets.
