First time staying at Norma's, warm welcome, lovely clean cosy place,we were out early every morning taking photos up the Mach Loop,so we didn't have breakfast, so Norma made us a packed lunch every day, on our return a lovely pot of tea was made for us. Will definitely be back. Thanks Norma.😀👍

Stayed here for one night in the family annexe. The views were amazing and Norma made us very welcome. A few drawbacks: The room smelt very damp, the bed linen was very old and faded. Breakfast was spoiled by everything being put on a plate and serving it up instead of asking what we liked/disliked! We were touring for a...

Stayed 1 night, our room was small with 2 single beds, not much room for 2 large suitcases. Bathroom was next to the room, not within. Room is great for families with children. Location and outlook were excellent. Hosts were wonderful and helpful. Breakfast was good. Parking was fine for our large vehicle located below parking area for guests.

When we arrived Norma was very welcoming and friendly. Made us a cup of tea and chatted easily to us and we felt very at home in her lovely house. Our room had spectacular views and was very clean and comfortable. We had a lovely guest lounge room to sit in and our two night stay was very enjoyable.

Stayed here for one night and enjoyed it a lot. The host, Norma was extremely friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very nice however, the room needed slight updating and the wifi was poor but I would definitely stay again.

The family room to the side of the house too small for anyone with a large group; even the bathroom was tiny. Being with a group of three other people, we often found ourselves virtually tripping over each other trying to make a cup of tea even. To my disappointment, this place catered very poorly for vegetarians as for breakfast...

Stayed here for a week at the beginning of July and it was great again. The hostess, N9orma is always very helpful and welcoming - Had a bit of a cold wh8ile I was there and she made me several very soothing hot lemon drinks with honey - nothing is too much trouble.

Me and partner recently stayed at this B and B and really enjoyed our stay. We arrived and were immediately greeted by the host Norma, who was very friendly. Norma showed us to our double room, which is of a good size, with a dressing table, TV and tea facilities. There was a cosy en suite and the shower was...

Stayed for two nights on this occasion, great breakfast, good location, good room and once again Norma very helpful. An easy walk into Dolgellau centre and a handy supermarket nearby for stocking up on the walking/cycling essentials.
