We have stayed in many lovely hotels and guest houses and this was certainly up there with the best! Our room was beautifully decorated, finished to a v high standard, had DVD player, iPod docking station, lovely comfy bed, gorgeous bathroom and overall we couldn't fault it! The service was great, the breakfast was delightful and would recommend anyone and everyone to book in here for a relaxing and luxurious break!

My wife, our 20 months old son and I were in need of a short break somewhere not too far away from the Midlands and an evening of searching around the Internet yielded Ffynon which looked great on the web. We bundled ourselves into a car and after a very pleasant drive through some stunning parts of mid-Wales we arrived. Steve's directions were perfect as was the room which were large, beautifully decorated and just right for us. The rest of the house was full of delightful details and the use of the lounge and extensive DVD collection was much appreciated. The breakfast was delicious and the service couldn't have been better. Steve gave us great advice about where to go around Dolgellau and the Ffynnon proved to be a perfect base for our break.

Everything about Ffynon was perfect; the warm & helpful hosting from Steve and staff; the immaculate and sumptuous furnishings in our room; the beautiful works of art all over the house; the delicious cooked breakfast; the gorgeous and comfortable guest lounge with dozens of books and maps to pour over (and a well stocked bar)... the list goes on. We stayed in 'Sydney' (the romantic room) and it was absolutely as described on the website - and more. Thoroughly impressed from start to finish, and couldn't recommend Ffynon highly enough to prospective travellers.

Room Tip: All the rooms are gorgeous! Sydney is the smallest, but was deliciously cosy and romantic.

Staying here was a pleasure, if I was ever in the area again I would jump at the chance of staying here again. We stayed in Emily room, which has the most amazing bathroom and fantastic views over the lovely countryside of Wales. The service is amazing with little touches like the honesty bar.

Steve was so friendly and welcoming from the very start, the unique sense of total indulgence with a personal touch proved to create the most rewarding break we have taken in years.
The suite was incredible and worth every penny, the decor, sculptures and little touches finished Ffynnon tastefully to a very high stndard without being oppresive.
Spotlessly clean, quiet and relaxing. The food was beautifully prepared delicious and plentiful
The staff were emensely helpful, polite and considerate throughout; loans of maps, DVD's personal knowledge snippets and menu's for all local restaurants.
Cannot recommendhighly enough, would definitely return.

Room Tip: Quiet, tasteful, Hazel suiteis well worth the extra

We had a few days break. Booked without any recommendations and being dubious of trip advisor as it is open to manipulation. Had a great experience as did our dog Honey. Lovely town and restaurants. Staff all were happy and pleased to help and guide visitors. Climbing Cader Idris was a great and tiring experience.

Room Tip: Stab in dark. All that we saw were excellent.

This was our honeymoon - we stayed in June.

The people who run this B&B could not do any more for you. They are so amazing and welcoming.

The breakfasts are to die for and the room was finished to a brilliant standard.

Every little detail was thought of and everywhere was clean.

Thank you so much for our lovely trip.

So relaxing.

All the best Mr and Mrs Waine

Room Tip: Any, they all looked brilliant. I am sure you will be pleased
