Sandra is a welcoming and delightful host. She went beyond the call of duty to make our stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. Elegant and spacious room in a great location. Fantastic breakfast.

Beautiful house; spacious room; comfortable bed and furnishings; lots of instant hot water; good breakfast choice, expertly prepared and presented; outstanding location for Snowdon, the Glyders and all North Wales attractions. I was made to feel very welcome. Thank you.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Dolafon and had a fantastic experience. We received a warm welcome and the room was very clean (we received fresh towels every day). The b&b itself was very quiet and we felt thoroughly relaxed there. Breakfast offered a large selection of fruit, cereal, yogurts and juice which was followed by a well presented cooked breakfast (cooked to order).

The b&b provides excellent access to Snowden walks and attractions and buses through the valley stop outside.

All in all we had a great experience and have already recommended it to family and friends.

I really enjoyed my stay and the breakfast in the grand dining room felt lovely. Sandra is a welcoming and lovely host who will chat and one of those special people where nothing is too much trouble and is flexible with a smile.

We really enjoyed our one night stay in July 2013. The room was so nicely furnished, great ensuite (sunny and roomy), lots of room to spread out, comfy bed. The breakfast was plentiful, a little different to the usual fry up (very welcome) and beautifully presented. B&B is very central and the owners kindly let us leave our car there while we walked up Snowdon.

I stayed Dlafon in April 2013 to go around Llanberis while I was on holiday from school, and I was excited to ride Snowdon Mountain Railway and Llanberis lake railway. They were quite near by Dlafon and I was pleased to stay in a nice and quiet B&B. My room and shower room were wide enough to stay.

An owner, Sandra, was kind enough to serve delicious breakfast and had a nice seivice.

When I visit Llanberis, I wish to stay Dlafon. Strongly recommend!

Thank you.

I chose Dolafon because of the excellent ratings on tripadvisor. I was looking for a hotel but chose this guest house and am glad I did. A good location in Llanberis in a beautiful old house with a lovely room and fantastic breakfast. Sandra is charming and friendly without being intrusive.
