What a delightful place to stay, Gordon & Michelle were very accommodating with the menu. I visited with a friend a they devised a menu for a Vegan and Coeliac - which was excellent. For walkers the hotel is ideally placed with Cadair Idris right on the door step and if you enjoy planes, the location is ideal for the... More

We had planned to stay in Machynlleth but there was no room at the Inn so we decided to drive on to Dollgellau. En route we passed this place so did a U turn and enquired as to room availability. Room was great - clean and tidy and had everything you needed. We ate in the restaurant and were pleasantly... More

An unplanned run out on a Sunday in this beautiful part of North Wales resulted in us stopping off at this small hotel and restaurant. Being this time of year it was quiet, but we were soon joined by a few other people. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful, and there was a very good range of local beers... More

Very confusing website saying kids welcome in bars and lounges (presumably not in the restaurant but that is not stated explicitly). However it seems you can't get adult meals in what they call the cafe (is that a bar or lounge? Goodness knows). There is a kids menu in the cafe though.... All very confused, we turned up anyway...

As soon as we walked in we saw that the place was full of character and knew this would be a pleasant experience. Food was freshly cooked and delicious. The building was historical and interesting and everywhere was very clean. The owner... More
