This was the most pleasant place to stay. I showed up short notice and they happened to have a vacancy. I arrived by train, took the five minute walk to the House, and slept like a baby.The hospitality was remarkable. I knew I wanted to hike and they gave me a map, helped me pick routes, showed me the bus... More

We chose this B&B from the internet for its location near good sites for mountain biking. The couple running the B&B were welcoming and had good advice with regards to local towns, the amenities and sight seeing in the area. The B&B itself was clean, warm, the bedrooms were furnished very nicely. I would highly recommend a stay here and... More

In all, you can look forward to a first class, five star quality holiday or stay, while in their... More

This was our first visit to Wales, let alone Blaenau. From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left we were treated like royalty. Pat and Alister made us feel most welcome, as well as their (well behaved) dogs. Our room was spotlessly clean, and they even laid on alternate hot beverages as one of us did not drink... More

Arriving by train in a town I'd never visited before Alistair and Pat made me feel instantly welcome. In the days I stayed with them they were a mine of useful informtion. They were never short of suggestions about the best places to visit and eat, and the best way to get there. Their breakfasts, including eggs fresh from their... More

Beautiful house in lovely surroundings, clean and homely rooms with comfortable beds and also a guest lounge room which was great for chilled out nights. Great service and delicious breakfast with lots of choice. The owners Pat and Alister made us feel at home as soon as we arrived and couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly. They gave us...

Defintartly home from home, everything about it just all you could ask for. It was so clean and Alistar and Pat were so helpful, we couldn't have asked for more. Didn't want to leave, staying at Dolawel really was a lovely experience and made our holiday. 5 stars isn't enough!

Every aspect was excellent from comfort to breakfast but undoubledly the best was the wonderful welcome from Alister and Pat. They were so friendly and knew all... More
