I've stayed at Dolgam several times now, once in a single room, but mainly I've been lucky enough to get single rate in a double. It's quiet and cosey and Mrs Davies always welcomes you with tea and Bara Brith (Gorgeous Welsh Cakey Bread). A short walk up the road is the Tyn-Y-Coed Hotel/Inn which does excellent evening meals and a good selection of beers (White wine for the ladies lol)

I've always found the owners very friendly, despite my obvious Englishness (although thanks to them, I can now pronounce most of the local mountains correctly including Yr Wyddfa, the correct name for Snowdon)

I noticed a disparaging comment about the campsite. Mr Davies and his son have worked hard to carry out drainage work on the site, but the big problem is that during very stormy weather the river will flood it (don't worry Mr Davies will let you know if it's likely), this means it can be waterlogged on occasion. However I have stayed there many times at all times of the year and there's always been hot water. There is no lighting or heating though, but it's cheap so that's why. Anyway a shower at -2 degrees C is bracing lol.

Room Tip: Room 3 is a double en suite, bath and shower

Very welcoming and easygoing. Lovely to be greeted with a pot of coffee and cake after a day of mountain biking. Room extremely clean and roomy. Great drying room. Fab breakfast - especially the bacon and mushrooms. Ideally situated in Capel Curig - close to some good pubs. Definitely will be returning.

Arrived at DolGam much earlier than I had expected, but was I still able to check in. Got a very welcome pot of tea and a delicious Welsh cake. One of the few B&Bs which has actual single rooms, charged as such, which made the stay very reasonably priced. The room was compact but adequate, with a separate shower and toilet on the floor above. The bed was very firm, but fortunately that doesn't worry me. A very nice lounge with lots of books, CDs, DVDs for entertainment. The breakfast was excellent, everything one could want. Overall, a very good experience and I would definitely stay again and recommend.

We have just come back from our second visit to Dol Gam. A lovely farmhouse B and B just outside Capel Cruig.

The room we had was very large, clean and pleasant, with a massive ensuite bathroom, powerful shower and comfortable beds. Tea, coffee and biscuits provided in the room.

On arrival each evening we were welcomed by our hostess and given tea and cakes in the guest sitting room (comfy sofas and widescreen TV), which is just what is needed after a day walking up hills in the rain. Facilities to dry our wet gear was offered.

The breakfasts were a good size and very tasty (especially the bacon).

The locationis great for exploring the heart of Snowdonia, the B and B itself is in a rural setting, and it is about a 10 minuite walk to the closest pub in Capel Curig (good pub grub and open fire) or a longer 20 mins walk to the other pub in the village (good beer, more pricey food).

We will be back!

We stayed at the beginning of their B&B season so it was very quite (I think we were the only people staying). The room was large, clean with an ensuite shower room.

The views are great and it is really close to two towns which have everything you need for a trek in Snowdonia.

We will definetely be returning.
