Have you ever been on vacation and your accommodation is just an unremarkable place to sleep? Not Plas Gwyn. I'd give them 20 stars if I could. We were 4 plus 2 dogs and 2 of us stayed in the B&B while the rest stayed in a lovely cottage at the back. From the moment you set foot in either the main house or the cottage you feel like you entered a period movie. Jan and Julie not only are remarkable people, but their attention to detail is unparalleled. While we went for a weekend escapade, I certainly regret not having a spare day to enjoy the cottage in front of the fire.
Location wise, Plas Gwyn is located in Dolgellau, a beautiful small town in the North of Wales. Though petit, it had very good options of food, Julie was super kind in guiding us to the best places.
Breakfast is served for the B&B guests in principle, but Jan and Julie were so kind as to accommodate us 4 for breakfast at their wonderfully decorated dining room.
Our dogs felt at home at the cottage, nothing like a beautiful pet friendly place to stay, and at the end of long walking days they loved cuddling in the cottage living room in front of the fire.
It was a magical stay and we'll be definitely looking forward to come back!

We have just had the pleasure of staying at Plas Gwyn for a week on a trip to Wales with family including grandchildren who are nuts about steam trains. Husband and I stayed in the b&b while daughter and family stayed nearby. From the moment you arrive at Plas Gwyn, you feel you have made two new friends, Jan and Julie, the husband and wife team who run Plas Gwyn. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed in the room with the 4-poster bed. It was like staying in a stately home, but with all modern comforts e.g. the excellent overhead shower. Breakfast was utterly delicious, we had a cooked breakfast every day, I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
Covid safety was in operation and we felt completely safe staying in Plas Gwyn. This does mean that the hosts do not enter your room until the end of your stay, but they were continually offering us fresh towels, jugs of milk, tea and coffee, and Welsh cakes. One day we arrived back late, having earlier asked for fresh milk, and Jan had put a small mobile fridge outside our door with the jug of milk in it.
Jan and Julie are actually interested in their guests and what they plan to do, and gave us excellent advice to make each trip more interesting, e.g. telling us about gorgeous scenic routes to get to the railways or wherever we were going.
The b&b is in an outstanding position to get anywhere in Dolgellau, it's just a short walk to all the cafes and restaurants and about 10 minutes from the park which has a really good kids' play area. I give it 5 stars, would give 10 if I could.

A historical little rock cottage that has everything needed to be comfortable. The hosts are easily accessible and pay attention to the details. There was a wonderful loaf of bread and Welsh cakes waiting for us upon check in. John has lots of ideas about where to hike and what to do. Great place to stay as you explore Eryri!

Having stayed at Plas Gwyn before we knew what to expect and we weren't disappointed. A friendly welcome from both Jan and Julie, a lovely and comfortable room (as pictured here) and a great breakfast. Jan achieved his aim of finding us a walk we had not done before (we have been coming to Dolgellau for a number of years). Its central location means that pubs and restaurants are within easy walking distance. We would most certainly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the town.

We stopped in the cottage the last weekend of November and had a great time. Thats it no need to read anymore!

But if you want detail.. the cottage was immaculate, kitchen fully equipped, sitting room with a log burner, shower room down stairs/WC and a single bedroom upstairs with a small WC. Outside is a garden and decking area. The cottage has parking and is 90 seconds walk from the center of Dolgellau.

The owners left us out key and said of you need anything just shout we are next door. We needed extra wood for the burner and it appeared 10 mins later.

Can't fault the place. Brilliant.

Our recent stay at the Plas Gwyn was an absolute joy.
The house has a period elegance and an unsurpassed charm which is felt as soon as you walk through the door.

Jan and Julie are the perfect hosts who take pride in their house. They are very helpful plus knowledgeable on the the local area, whether it be advice on scenic walks or which bakery sells the best Welsh Cakes! Their enthusiasm to make you feel welcome is wonderful.

The Breakfasts deserve a mention too. Absolutely delicious! Jan and Julie will happily prepare to suit people's quirky preferences.
The dinning room is the perfect place to plan your days adventure along side the 300 year old oak side board which must have witnessed many adventures!

Plas Gwyn is perfectly situatated, just a few minutes walk from the heart of beautiful Dolgellau with it's extensive range of restaurants and pubs to suit everyone's taste.

My only negative comment is that I'm disappointed we didn't discover this amazing place untill now.

Thank you
We will back!

Many thanks for your kind review. It's great when we have guests who share our enthusiasm for our surroundings, the town of Dolgellau and Plas Gwyn itself. We think it's a bit special but then we are probably biased so it's really nice when we hear that others feel the same

First time at Dolgellau in Plas Gwyn B & B . We loved every part of the break, The b and b is extremely old and kept in good condition, every thing we needed but dont expect Modern decor or fresh paint . The owners are very welcoming and so helpful on things to do with all the guests, Jan gave us advice on our cycle ride to Barmouth so we wouldnt get lost, it was a brilliantly flat 8 mile ride with absolutely stunning views, we stopped off in Barmouth had an hour or so there and then cycled 8 miles back with a stop off at the George pub , (not very nice lager though). A dip in the river towards the end. Jan also gave us guidance on a short easy walk at Cregennan, with 2 lakes and absolutely stunning scenery with a look over to barmouth. and Cadair Idris. Jan also told us the best pubs ,The Torrent pub had excellent food and cheap prices with lots of character. I hope we visit again sometime.

Just had a lovely 2 night stay in the Plas Gwyn B&b.
Our room at the top of the house had a small sash window to the front of the property.
A double sleigh bed .and lots of dark wood furniture. A feature fireplace and a modern shower room complete with beams. Every thing suited the house style.
Very quite .
Breakfast was served in the lovely dining room that over looks the rear garden . Table cloths and fine china . Lovely menu choice . All served and cooked beautifully.
The owners were very friendly and professional.
There’s a car parking area in the courtyard . And a couple of Private garden areas to sit in the evening With a glass of wine .
Lots of restaurants and bars in the village ,so after a day exploring it’s nice to come back here .

Very easy booking and great information from the owners. We stayed in the cottage, which was very clean and comfortable. Everything you need is available including hairdryer, iron & ironing board. All cooking implements are in good order although plenty of restaurants are nearby. Jan & Julie have excellent local knowledge and they provide good literature in the cottage of nearby places of interest. Overall an excellent place to stay

The B& B was perfect. Free parking with a lovely outside area to sit and relax in the sun, The host, Jan was very friendly and accommodating. He served a very nice breakfast with lots of choice. There were tea and coffee facilities in the room. Also welsh cakes, bottled water and a mini fridge with fresh milk in it. The bed was very comfy and the large room with a four poster bed very bright. The large window looked over the garden and the smaller one the entrance and cottage next door. Ideally located to get around. We would definitely recommend the Plas Gwyn B&B.
