“Picturesque and relaxing - almost perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

I stayed with my two teenagers in room 6 - billed as a family room. The room was indeed large, with plenty of storage space, but would best be described as a twin room with zed-bed for a diminutive third guest! Having said this, the room was clean and appeared newly refurbished, with a splendid shower room and a large flat-screen tv.

The breakfast room was also a pleasant environment, but retaining far more olde worlde charm. The location is certainly stunning, and the grounds and house itself are very pretty - my only other quibble being the difficulty of finding a parking space if you come back late in the evening

Room Tip: Although the family room (room 6) does sleep three, I think three large adults would struggle

Dolgun Uchaf is an odd little B&B off the beaten track just a couple of minutes drive from the town of Dolgellau.
We had room 8 and after paying for what we thought would be a double room with ensuite, we were very surprised and delighted to get our own little apartment.
Narrow stairs, from our own front door, led up to an open plan lounge/kitchen. There is a fridge, cooker, sink, dishwasher and plenty of cupboard space. A two seater leather look cream sofa and a large TV.
The bathroom has a fabulous shower, shaving point and shaving mirror.
The bedroom is small but with the rest of the apartment, it doesn't need to be big. There is ample hanging space and shelves in the built in cupboard, and I would find it difficult to remember a more comfortable bed. I slept like a log all 3 nights that we stayed. The pillows are soft but supportive, the duvet is warm and the bedding was crisp white linen.
We cooked on the first night, cutlery and crockery and a few cooking utensils are provided.
Breakfast is served within quite a small time frame, 8am until 9.15am, and taken in the main part of the house. Plenty of choice for cereal, full english breakfast and toast, tea/coffee plus muffins.
There's plenty of parking space and the B&B also runs a campsite on the fields attached but we had no problems with noise from the campers.
My partner and I stayed for 3 nights and loved it.
P.S. Only tiny problem was that although there is a Sky box under the tv and it comes up as Sky, there are only a limited amount of freeview channels available.

Room Tip: If you want the little apartment, ask for room 8.

Have just returned from a night in Dolgun Uchaf B&B and would not rate our room as 4 star for the following reasons: The window could not be closed leaving a large gap - not good on a windy and rainy night( see also other review from July by vanetoni70), the reading lamps were broken - one with no light bulb, the bed was very uncomfortable and we could feel every spring, and the breakfast was mediocre. Would I stay again? no thanks!

We knew we were going to a 17th century farm, but we expected it to be (as stated on their website) a high standard of confort and luxury. Well, it was not.
Our room on the first floor was very outdated, with an even more outdated bathroom. The beds were very unconfortable and we woke upto the "sweet" smell of fried bacon comming up from the kitchen. The window would not close and the reading light didn't work. It is the same room shown in the picture, but taken from an angle so you can't see the awful grey formica closets on the walls.
On the other side, i must say the room was very clean and the area offers very nice walks. We would never come back.

Stayed one night,, found it by accident, ,what a lucky find! Lovely spacious room with all facilities and wonderful shower. stable door allowed us to enjoy the gorgeous garden and scenery. Pleasant staff and decent breakfast with full English ,fruit ,cereal ,juice etc. Good value. The best place we stayed at in Wales.

Room Tip: We stayed in the court yard rooms, first class.

We spent a night here on a short break with family. The location was stunning! The rooms were very comfortable, we had one room in the main building and one in an annexe, both were quiet and well equipped. Following a night out in Dolgellau, we finished the evening with a drink in the cosy communal living room in the main building, perfect! The cooked breakfast the next morning was excellent! The staff were extremely helpful and friendly throughout our stay. We will definitely stay again and would highly recommend this to others!
