We stayed at Dolawel for 3 nights last week and were very impressed. Pat and Alistair welcomed us into their home and were keen to make us very comfortable. The dogs were very welcoming too!
Our room was spacious, immaculate and comfortable, and the breakfasts were excellent - fresh eggs each morning were lovely. Alistair was very knowledgeable about the local weather and walking conditions which enabled us to plan our days.
All in all a good choice of accommodation with fine hospitality thrown in! Thank you both very much.

It's always risky when you stay at a guest house as you're never quite sure what to expect but I can honestly say our stay was fantastic. I would point out that we are a young couple visiting for a wedding and then stayed an extra night to explore the area. We were greeted warmly (first by the loveable dog) and then by Pat and Alister. Our room was clean and cosy, the bed large and comfortable. The en-suite was clean, power shower, soft towels and luxury toilet paper. Chocolate bars in the room (different ones each day). Breakfast was superb. There was no issue about us returning late from the wedding. Thier expert local knowledge is great to hear when you're visiting the area for the first time. My girlfriend summed it up as "the best place I've stayed at".

How fortunate we were to book this B&B - with tastefully appointed accommodation, good breakfast and , most of all, friendly and helpful hosts. Pat and Alister welcomed us into their home ( their delightful dogs too ! ) and it was always a pleasure to return there after a day's sightseeing.. Excellent value.

Room Tip: All well appointed, everything matched, and super clean.

Thank you for taking the time to carry out an extremely complimentary review, it is very much appreciated. Always nice to hear that guests have enjoyed their visit to North Wales and their stay here with us in Dolawel (breeze in the meadow). The dogs also enjoyed your time here and the 5 baby chickens are now starting to get feathers. Thanks again. Pat & Alister

Dutch friends sussed out this accommodation for us prior to our arrival and gave it a 5 star rating. We were not disappointed. Pat and Alister are excellent hosts, friendly and welcoming, our room and ensuite bathroom were first class, and the breakfasts were superb. Pam is still raving about the fresh eggs from their own chickens. We would definitely like to return one day.Thank you both.
Pam and Robert Brough.

We picked this B&B from reviews on Trip advisor and were not disappointed. We arrived by train on Friday Afternoon and after a short walk from the station we were greeted by Pat and Alister they made us feel instantly welcome and we were shown to a gorgeous en-suite room. Alister provided us with tips on where to get a good meal in the town which was spot on.
on our return Alister was able to give us expert advice on the best routes to climb snowdon, provided us with maps and informed us of the Sherpa Bus from betws y coed which was excellent.
The cooked breakfasts were delicious and were able to cater for me (as i suffer from food allergies) and exactly what was needed to prepare for the ascent. :)
We would heartly recommended this B&B to anyone who wishes to explore this part of Wales, you will be made feel welcome from the first step across the threshold, and you will not find a couple with more knowledge of the local area
