Very limited parking
We stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms which was perfect, both clean and comfortable.
We were not able to sample an evening meal as there were no tables available. (There is a great Chinese takeaway nearby.) Breakfast however was fine. The biggest problem with this hotel is the lack of adequate parking. I'm not sure how many rooms the hotel lets, but it is clearly far more than the eight parking spaces available in their car park. As a result guests like ourselves have to spend a considerable length of time each evening to find a suitable parking space within the town itself which is a challenge as this is severely limited in Dolgellau. Potential guests beware!
When I booked the room I checked that it was an en suite.
However, when we arrived we had been allocated a room without one. I complained about this and was given another room with an en suite but no shower. The receptionist apologised that neither room had been refurbished and said that the hotel was under refurbishment but I could see no signs of this anywhere in the hotel. The bath was very old, chipped and filthy and the hot water tap dripped constantly. In the corner of the bedroom the paper was coming off the wall and the plaster was falling down. The radiator did not work. The only good thing about the room was the bed which was clean and comfortable. the following day clean towels were put in the bathrrom but it was not cleaned. We had breakfast there which was of a good standard but ate out the rest of the time. The staff were very pleasant and helpful but this did not make up for the state of the room.
