Reviewed 11 September 2010

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.

We and our dog really enjoyed our stay at the Don, and have decided to return next summer, in the hope that the weather will be better and we can actually climb Snowdon! We were made to feel very welcome, and my daughter's fussy eating habits were no problem to the landlady. The room was of a good size, clean and comfortable. Good advice was provided about where to eat in the town and where to walk the dog (away from sheep).

A great stay at The Don. I go to Ffestiniog once in a while and would certainly stay there again. Charming family to stay with. I think we kept the landlady up a little late though :-)

Cannot praise The Don highly enough. For walkers in the Snowdonia National Park, this would be my first choice of accommodation.

The hospitality was exceptional, the views are superb.
For the price, the quality of accommodation is tremendous and there is street parking close by.

It's a short drive to Betws-y-Coed and Mount Snowdon. I checked in to compete in the Snowdonia Marathon, and the staff could not have been more helpful. I'd recommend The Don to anyone.
