A great guest house, we had a lovely large room at the front. It's in a great location on Llanberis High Street and only a couple of minutes walk from the Snowden railway and the start of one of the gentler paths up the mountain. The owner was lovely and breakfasts were great, will happily stay there again next time...

We stayed here for a couple of nights as wanted to climb Snowdon. Had a very large room at the front. Very comfortable and a good bathroom. Service was super friendly and the breakfasts were large and very tasty. Just a 5 minute walk from the Snowdon railway and the hiking tracks. Lots of other stuff to do around there...

Found this B & B by accident, thank goodness. Lovely place to stay & Sandra, together with her right-hand helper Elke, made us very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble & the room was neat & clean. Breakfast didn't disappoint either. Instead of staying the one night as planned, we extended our stay. So handy for Snowdon, either by rail...

My partner and I stayed at Dolafon for the weekend when we visited Llanberis, primarily to climb Snowdon. Even before we arrived the service was fantastic. I spoke to Sandra on the phone and she seemed incredibly warm and friendly instantly and I booked the room with no issues at all. I explained that we would be travelling after work...

Stayed here two weekends and have to say what a very nice place it is. Very welcoming, both Sandra and her husband are really nice people. Very clean and comfortable. Within the town itself with ample safe off road parking. Next time visit it will be at Dolafon
