We were only at the B&B for one night and booked it very last minute. Because of this I think we missed out a little on some of the details that the others have mentioned. The welcome was lovely, warm Welsh cakes a real treat as the weather was awful, plenty of hot drinks available to make in the room, cookies etc. Our room (Blyton?), now I've read the other reviews and looked at the Facebook page, is the smallest and although immaculately clean is a little cramped.(interestingly there are no photos of it on the Facebook page) The biggest problem is the en-suite. The door doesn't open fully as it is stopped by the bottom of the bed and the en-suite itself is tiny. All the toiletries and towels and bathrobes were lovely as described but we had to take the bathrobes off the back of the en-suite door to give us more room!! I would say this room is definitely a one nighter.
The B&B is dog friendly, but - dogs are not allowed in the dining room for breakfast, which can be an issue if you have an anxious dog in a strange environment. We put ours in the car while having our breakfast, car park is secure and quiet so this isn't a problem in the cooler weather.
The famous brioche rolls had run out - so we didn't get to try them but breakfast was great, the granola a treat.
I don't want this review to seem entirely critical, but always feel that truthfulness is best, especially as the new owners haven't been there long. I would definitely like to stay again, and try an evening meal, but in a bigger room!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Simon and Liz would love to welcome you to Dolffanog Fach. Our aim is to provide the warm and friendly welcome of a traditional B&B with the standards and special touches you would expect from a boutique hotel. Unlike most B&Bs we do not "live in", we have a little cottage just next door so you don't need to feel as though you are staying in someone's home. We have 4 lovely double bedrooms, a sitting room with a log fire and a beautiful dining room with a slate floor and wood burning stove. Our dining room is big enough to accommodate individual tables for each guests but small enough to be cosy and allow you to chat to other guests if you wish. We have a large garden that you are welcome to explore - including a full vegetable garden! We also have a Finnish Sauna which is just perfect after a long day's hike or cycle in our astonishingly beautiful surroundings. If you are a walker or mountain biker then we can offer you our "Boots & Bikes" Room. Secure storage for your bikes, boots, helmets and clothes and we can also offer laundry facilities. Our breakfasts are designed to really set you up for the day and also offer plenty of variety if you are staying for more than a few days. You could stay for a week and have a different breakfast every day! We really want to offer our guests value for money and put a lot of effort into the little things, the biscuits in the rooms are homemade and freshly baked, the milk is fresh and the coffee is ground and there are lots of other little touches that guests always comment on and say how much they make a difference. Children of any age are more than welcome and we also welcome dogs and they are allowed in the rooms and sitting room, we don't permit them in the dining room but you are welcome to leave them in the bedrooms while you eat. We hope you'll come and stay with us, we can promise you a friendly welcome, lovely rooms, delicious food, glorious surroundings and a truly relaxing stay. ... more less
