“Great B+B”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Stayed there for 2 nights at the end of September 2013. Situated in the middle of Dolgellau, but nevertheless very quiet. Impressive stone building with a lovely frontgarden! Cozy and clean room, yummy breakfast, very nice and helpfull host! Thanks, Duncan, for the warm welcome!

Our room was spotlessly clean with tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits waiting for us which was very welcome after our journey. The bed was comfortable and warm and the bathroom was clean with plenty of towels. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, in fact it was the perfect B&B. Thanks you for your hospitality and Duncan thanks for your suggestion of an alternative route, the scenery was fantastic!

Arriving later than usual was no problem and my room was lovely, large and comfortable, with plenty of Tea, Coffee, Biscuits and Hot Chocolate to enjoy.
Everything was immaculately clean and fresh smelling, with plenty of towels.
Breakfast was plentiful and tasty.
As I was on my own this trip, I really appreciated the welcoming family atmosphere,
Thanks Both, hope to visit again next year.

Centrally situated B+B in Dolgellau. We had an en-suite top-floor bedroom that was well appointed with a good shower,hair dryer and coffee/tea facilities. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. In short, Ivy House was all that you need in a B+B and I would recommend it.
One problem, which is part of its location, is that parking may be a bit tricky: Duncan went out of his way to find a parking place close by, but this is not guaranteed.

Ivy house is an adequate bed and breakfast that has been modernized as well as the room we were in allowed. But, the drawback was the room was not as clean as could be. Also, it is right on a Main Street just off the town square and had traffic noise, plus the garbage truck picking up at 6:15 in the morning. It was neither great or bad, just mediocre. The town of Dolgellau is interesting with all of it's stone buildings.

Stayed for a few nights with friends on a walking holiday. Duncan was very welcoming, and we had a nice stay. Breakfasts good, and free wi-fi worked well. May not be suitable if you have an allergy to cats, but they weren't any trouble. Would stay here again.

The TriumphTiger 800/800XC Mega Meet 2013 descended upon the delightful Welsh town of Dolgellau. My wife and I along with 5 other bikers chose to stay in this delightful B&B.

Prior to our stay, the owner, Margaret was very helpful, giving advice on directions, where we can park our bikes etc etc. When we arrived, she was very welcoming.

The room was clean with complimentary tea, coffee etc and shower gels and shampoos. WiFi was free. There is a guest lounge available if desired, although on this occasion we did not use the facility. Breakfast was great and prepared us for our long rides.

The B&B is situated very close to the Main Square where there are pubs, restaurants etc.

I would recommend this B&B. When we travel to Dolgellau again, we will be checking to see if there is availability here in the first instance.
