“Sublime and Superb, cannot be beaten on class or quality!”
Reviewed September 16, 2011

We were travelling through Wales during August Bank Holiday and decided to look for a B&B on spec. We had the room overlooking the bay, wow! I wished I could have moved in here, a beautifully decorated and spacious room and a fabulous view of the bay, complete with two chairs and a table to sit and admire the vista. The best part of our stay was the fabulous hosts who made us a pot of tea and the most delicious fruit cake ever. The breakfast was the best we had ever had, and we have stayed at some top hotels in the world but the breakfast here could never be beaten. A sumptuous cooked breakfast, home made breads and home made preserves. Also lots of fresh soft fruits and yogurt. There is a lovely reading room upstairs with a good selection of books with lots on the local area. Our hosts were so friendly and welcoming and have a good knowledge of the area with walks and places of interest. This is well situated and is only a short stroll from the town with good restaurants and facilities. We will be definately coming back next year. This is such a gem and is one to definately give a try, One other plus point is there is no television, we made some tea and sat relaxing taking in the beautiful view and had the most relaxing peaceful stay. See you again next year!!

Beautiful room with bay window and ocean view; scrumptious breakfasts--cooked just as you like them; fascinating hosts; gorgeous walks right out the front door. Wish we had been there longer. Our favorite place on our 2 week vacation. Would definitely go back. Perfect in every way.

Room Tip: All rooms are great & have view.

A little late in submitting this review as we stayed at the end of July just for one night but we had a wonderful stay. John and Jupp are very welcoming hosts and the tea and cake on arrival was a wonderful extra especially as it was homemade. Breakfast again was one of the best I have had at a b&b along with wonderful homemade bread and jams. Beautiful views from the room. Only a short walk into Barmouth and parking available outside the b&b. If not there is a car park just round the corner. Would recommend.

Warmth of welcome & charming hospitality throughout - the best we've ever experienced in a B&B. Ideally placed for town (but not so close as to be noisy); spacious, comfortable, immaculate rooms; unmatchable views over the estuary and beyond; and memorable breakfasts!

We stumbled across Dros y Dwr on trip advisor by chance and thought the reviews looked "too good to be true" ... but this is not the case and John and Jupp absolutely deserve the glowing reports. Fantastic hosts, down to earth, willing to help and provide walking tips without being too invasive. Great breakfasts, clean and comfortable rooms with walks right from the doorstep. Great "extra's" such as a library and home cooked cakes and preserves. The views over the estuary and mountains are breath-taking. Definately recommended for outdoorsy types, a great base for Snowdonia national park.
