Due to working in the area, my wife and I wished to stay overnight. We booked by phone with a warm and friendly response. On arrival the owner was not present but we were shown our room and given advise where we could get a meal. On returning to the Don at 8.00 p.m. we were rather surprised that the lounge area was locked up and we could not gain access to use the bar etc. The following morning we met the owner who was very welcoming and provided a well cooked full English breakfast. The room was nicely presented and relatively clean but small, we did see other rooms that were bigger and had lovely views. Parking is only possible on a public car park away from the property but within easy walking distance.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and not on the road side of the property.

We received a warm welcome and enjoyed our stay at the Don. The view from our room was fantastic and the owners could not have made us more welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The owners gave us a lot of local info as to where to eat etc. Unfortunately the weather wasn't good for us - but that's Wales for you!

We spent one night at the Don bed and breakfast. We were made to feel most welcome. Not only did our hostess recommend a restaurant for dinner, but also called ahead to inform them we were going (in that part of Wales places usually close very early!).

Our double room with ensuite was extremely clean, quiet and comfortable and had an amazing view. In fact during all our driving holiday, this was the only hotel/bb where biscuits were made available with the tea and coffee making facilities. The full English breakfast was excellent and served exactly at our convenience. Our hosts were extremely attentive to our needs and very help in every way. The price was also very reasonable We had a wonderful stay! Thank you!

I stayed at The Don on the recommendation of a business colleague and, I have to say, was surprised to find this little gem. The landlady was a very friendly, courteous host and had some useful tips on where to go and what to see locally. The building itself was very nice and the views of the surrounding Snowdonia were excellent.
A nice place to stay: family and business travellers alike will, I'd have thought, feel very welcome here.

The Don guest house surpassed my expectations. A large en-suite room with great views, very clean hroughout. A great nights sleep followed by a hearty breakfast cooked to perfection. There's nothing better to set you up for a day's mountain biking.
The landlady was very helpful and friendly. I have already booked my next stay at the end of August and can't wait.
