Y Meirionnydd
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Dolgellau
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This small friendly and thoughtfully run hotel is a great place to stay for a few days in Snowdonia-despite the weather. The restaurant downstairs has been nicely refurbished and the food was lovely. Dolgellau is a very interesting little town too. Highly recommended!

This hotel should be your first choice if you want superb delightful, well equipped rooms fitted and decorated to a high standard, friendly and helpful staff and wonderful food. You will get service above and beyond the call of duty. The owners and staff really do go the extra mile.
Lovely walks to be had in the near proximity, try the Precipice walk, the Torrent walk, a walk/bike ride from King George 111 pub along the estuary or a walk/bike ride from the car park at Morfa Mawddach along the trail.

Room Tip: I think that all the rooms are of equal standard, we stayed in the Eryri, just some have a bath as w...

We've just had a wonderful weekend staying here. Independently run hotels can be a hit and miss affair but this is a definite HIT. It pulls off a rare blend of friendly, personal and boutique service but with all the polish and finishing touches of a bigger, classy hotel. From the moment we walked in we were very much treated as guests and also friends of the hotel.

There's a real feeling that the guys running this have sat down and designed the hotel by answering the question 'what do we want in a hotel when we go away?' As a result the produce, the decor and the niceties are all very high standard. Taylor's tea, White Company toiletries, Tiptree sauces, locallly sourced tip top produce for brekkie, nice bedding, lovely robes etc.

To top it off, the restaurant in a cosy and nicely done cellar venue, is the best in town and is lovely local produce done simply but with skill. Three course deal is good value and it's well portioned to get through all three without wanting to collapse in a heap! The Black Welsh cattle steak is a highlight, as is the Penderyn Welsh whisky honey ice-cream. Yum!

The wider area is, of course, a haven for walkers, mountain bikers and all wanting to lap up Snowdonia national park. We did that and it's lovely to have such a classy little bolt-hole to come back to of an evening. A perfect Snowdonia base.

if you are going anywhere near this area, there is no reson to stay anywhere else.. We were welcomed by the guys who own and run this delightful hotel. they were friendly helpful and very pleasant. our room was beautifully appointed and comfortable. the breakfasts were wonderful, and were served with a calm efficiency which we felt all weekend. there were lots of lovely touches from all the people who work there- they all seemed pleased to help you, and were very happy to assict. i cannot praise them enough.
we had dinner there on the Saturday night which was divine. service was outstanding, the food was perfectly cooked and the setting and decor was sublime. they have converted an old building, using old furniture, and modern decor and they have done it in a spectacular beautiful tasteful and elegant way. i havent been to Wales in years, but i plan to come back, and wouldnt want to stay anywhere else.

Fantastic little hotel, efficiently run, with excellent friendly service from both the owners and the rest of the staff. Our room was elegantly decorated, and it was a pleasure to find extras such as robes in a hotel of this size. One baffling omission was soap on the handbasin - to wash your hands you had to reach round the shower screen for a squirt of shower gel, but other than this everything was spot on. We ate in the restaurant both nights and enjoyed every mouthful. The portions were perfect, the sauces tasty but not over-rich, so I actually managed 3 courses both nights and ended the evening feeling satisfed, not stuffed. A good varied wine list - and the best g & t we'd ever had, must be the Fentiman's tonic?

Room Tip: Our room was at the back, really quiet. I gather those at the front had been disturbed by noise from...

Excellent room if a little pricey but the food and facilities justified the high price. The location is very good in a quiet square in Dolgellau and the local area is great if you are an outdoors enthusiast
