“First Class Guest House”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

My wife and I were very impressed with our stay and the hospitality received at this wonderful place in Llanberis, the room was very clean and comfortable and nice and quiet as well. Sandra was a wonderful Hostess whom could not do enough for us. her breakfasts were fantastic. The location in the village was very handy to everything and had the bonus of free off street parking as well. We will recommend to all our friends

Dolafon is a very charming place, with its grand breakfast room, nicely appointed bed & bathrooms, ample breakfast menu, and informative and warm host. Our sleep was comfortable and quiet! Location is superb, within walking distance of anything you want to do in town. Our drizzly stay in Llanberis was made happily memorable at this lovely B & B.

My friend had recommended this guest house to me, so I was expecting something quite nice and it didn't disappoint! I was so impressed with everything - the lovely house, the welcome from the owner, the cleanliness, delicious breakfast, but mainly by the obvious care the owner has in making your stay, in her guest house, as good one. She goes that little bit extra....the rooms are very well equipped (the bed was so comfortable!) I couldn't ask for anything more. I can't think of anything negative to say.....she should be very proud to have such great pride in what she does and the positive reviews below are truly deserved. I will certainly stay again and recommend it to anyone going to that area, as it's certainly the best guest house I have stayed in.

We stayed for 2 nights @ the Dolafon- had a lovely stay. Sandra was warm, welcoming and very friendly with our 11 month old daughter. The breakfast was brillinat.
The location is great with everything in a vicinity. You can walk down to the lake, to the city and the mountain railway.
Highly recommended

My husband and myself came to Llanberis to visit our friend Mac who lives in Brynrefail and were looking for somewhere to stay overnight. Well, what can i say, our friend called to Dolafon Guest House to see if they had a room. We were so pleased that he did because it was so lovely. Sandra is the perfect hostess and made our stay a pleasing one. The room was perfect...king size bed and so comfy and everthing was so clean and comfortable.The breakfast was brilliant...we just wished that we had booked in for a few days more..never mind...we will be back...Margaret & Alan

Had a great time here spending three nights in the guest house. As the other reviews state the breakfast was excellent with a good full english breakfast but also vegetarian options as well as cereal, fruit, yoghurt etc.
The rooms are of various sizes but all comfortable and well furnished. The beds were good also.
The location is just two minutes walk from the railway station up Snowdon and just over the road from three different restaurants.
The only issues with the place were:
1. the water pressure in the shower room at the top of the guest house was pretty poor
2. the curtain were not very substantial and didn't really keep out much light, so you get woken early in the summer.
3. the welcome tea and cakes supplied on arrival - which were great (will be charges to you when you leave).
