“Definitely coming back if I'm visiting dolgellau again”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I stayed here for two weeks and it was really awesome! The hotel owners are really friendly. Knowing that it's my first time in Wales, the hotel owner was kind enough to offer me a ride home if I ever got lost while travelling out. Also, out of the two weeks when I was in Dolgellau, at the last minute I had to travel to Liverpool and wasn't sure how to get there. The owner helped me to find the travel routes and explained them to me. He also helped me to find a cheap and safe accomodation for me to stay during my trip at Liverpool. I was extremely thankful and touched by their concern for my safety during my stay with them. Furthermore on the second last day of my stay the owner offered to show me around areas near Dolgellau that was only accessible by car. He also brought me to try out the local welsh black beef and lamb shank. I had such a good time in wales. Apart from the fun, the rooms are very clean, comfy and homely. In the case where you are thinking of staying in a room that is not en suite and concerned about cleanliness of the shared bathroom, fret not. The Bathroom is extremely clean and pretty. They also have a living room where guest gather round to watch movies. Most importantly, the hotel is located at the town center so it's very accessible to buses. If you aren't sure what to do and where to visit, feel free to ask the owners. Last but not least if you are looking for a place for fabulous service then this is definitely the place for you.

We stayed over at the weekend and our room was lovely. It had a nice en suite and lots of nice little treats to use in the shower. The tea and coffee making facilities were nice and there was a TV. The breakfast was gorgeous and very filling! Very good value for money with very friendly and welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay again, especially as it was within a 5 minute walk of lots of restaurants and pubs to eat in.

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.
