“An Excellent B & B”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Stayed for the first time at Aber Cottage over Easter - cannot fault anything - cleanliness, food, service, everything was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for Sarah. Hope to stay again in the future and would recommend to anyone

I stayed at Aber Cottage on a bright, blustery night having ridden for more than 130 miles across South and mid Wales (over two days) to get there. Graham and Sarah had kindly agreed to let me stay for free as my challenge was to ride from Cardiff to the Conwy Valley for Ty Gobaith children's hospice. I was in pain, exhausted and in need of a warm, welcoming room for the night. I got it, and more. Dolgellau is a beautiful place, and Aber Cottage is nestled quietly amongst its winding streets, filled with homely pubs, shops and buildings. The couple themselves were kind and accommodating. The bed, in the Wnion suite, was marshmallow soft, and the ability to be able to just sit back and relax, watch TV, have a hot shower and let my aching body recuperate was a Godsend. A quick pint at the nearby Stag pub helped, as did a goodbye consisting of tea, toast and good luck. Not only did the Aber Cottage act as a safe haven for the night, my brief stay lifted spirits and pushed me on to the finish line. Thanks again, I'd recommend anybody stay there.

Graham and Sarah were perfect hosts, welcoming us with our young baby in their lovely B&B for the night. The off street parking is great, our room was so clean & comfortable, and the location was perfect for our evening out at the local Dylanwad Da restaurant across the road. A lovely place, great value for money, we would be happy to spend more time here, especially with such a delicious breakfast.

Stayed November 2012, travelled with family

Aber cottage has its own website with up to date prices and availability which we found useful.
The accommodation is comfortable, warm and clean.Vegetarian breakfast was provided at our request.
Aber cottage is a perfect location for visiting Snowdonia and Cadair Idris.
Dolgellau is a lovely town with a good choice of mostly independent shops.
We had several options for eating out and our hosts offered us the choice of bringing a take away back.

Aber Cottage is a meticulously clean but very cosy B&B. Sarah and Graham were very welcoming hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Fantastic cooked breakfast. Secure private parking is a real bonus......
