Six of us have just had a wonderful 2 nights at the Dolffanog Fawr. We all thought that this is the most brilliant B & B. From the really warm welcome upto the point of leaving on our last day we felt that nothing was to much bother for Lorraine & Alex. The meals were all excellent and the drinks... More

We have just had a couple of days staying with Alex and Lorraine at their beautiful B&B at Dolffanog Fawr. I can't speak too highly of the experience. Alex and Lorraine were charming and helpful, Alex particularly so about the fishing (even if the sea trout weren't so obliging). The setting is lovely with views out over the valley and... More

Absolutely fantastic hosts, food, scenery, facilities etc etc ! Couldn't have asked for a better wedding anniversary short holiday. There's so much to do in the local area ie bikes, climbing, beaches, hills, rivers etc. We can't wait to return. Fantastic !

We had a fantastic time in Tal-y-llyn, especially due to the cosy and friendly atmosphere in this lovely B&B! We had great food, comfortable beds, a nice bath, great recommendations from the owners, wonderful views... We hope to be back soon!

We booked here after reading the reviews of other guests and generally yes I agree it is a top class guest house in an outstanding location. On arrival we spent our first half an hour just gazing out of the window taking in the mountain, the variety of birds utilising the bird feeders and the lake in the background along... More

Ouch that hurts! I’m glad you had a generally pleasant stay with us however I must respond to your niggles: The lock and key About 5 years ago a guest somehow managed to double lock the door from the inside and then slam the door shut, it could not be unlocked. I had to call out a locksmith and it... More

We stayed with Alex and Lorraine for 4 (rather fab) nights and have hotly debated since leaving that Dolffanog Fawr is possibly the best B&B we have ever stayed. It really is a remarkable place for a number of reasons. Firstly your hosts - Alex and Lorraine are great and genuinely welcoming. Alex is so knowledgeable of the local area... More

Beautiful views across fields to the lake. Great walks for all levels. Very comfortable beds and rooms with a big fluffy white duvet! Best of all was the warm welcome from Alex and Lorraine and the food was delicious. I would recommend having dinner every night of your visit if available - Lorraine's meals are 5*, 3 courses and you... More

Nestled among the mountains and lakes is Dolffanog Fawr. We were greeted by our hosts Lorraine and Alex, who have created this wonderful b&b in Wales. There is so much to say about this gem. Alex and Lorraine are congenial, warm, and friendly hosts. The rooms are comfortable, super clean, and modern. We had views of the lake and hills... More

Stayed here for two nights with friends , the accommodation , food , service and the hosts are absolutely excellent. This place is a real hidden gem and one which we wish to revisit.I imagine it would be difficult to find a more friendly an welcoming guest house.
