“Home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2009

Wonderful home away from home. Hosts, Alister and Pat, very welcoming and helpful! Cosy, comfortable rooms. Location of guest house very central to many interesting places.
We would recommend this guest house to anyone travelling to North Wales.

The rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious with attention to detail, with tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and toiletries provided. Our rooms had been cleverly converted to allow for both to be en-suite. Breakfast filled us up for the day.
Pat and Alister provided help and a warm welcome.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel that it was our home too. Pat and Alister went out of their way to ensure our holiday was a success, in spite of the rain. The rooms were comfortable, beautifully furnished and spotless, the breakfast excellent. .

Stay there - you will not be disappointed.

We have just returned from another excellent stay at Dolawel Guest House. This B & B is everything it says it is and more. Extremely welcoming and cosy with clean and well-presented rooms. Delicious breakfasts, great value for money and the friendliest hosts we have ever met. Pat and Alister add a personal touch which makes this place a home from home, providing information and local knowledge if required but without being at all intrusive. We shall definitely return it is an excellent location for getting around Snowdonia and Dolawel is in a beautiful setting with wonderful mountain views as a backdrop. With all these plus factors what more can we say? Many thanks again for making our stay so enjoyable in North Wales. A visit never to be forgotten.
