“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2011

A little late in submitting this review as we stayed at the end of July just for one night but we had a wonderful stay. John and Jupp are very welcoming hosts and the tea and cake on arrival was a wonderful extra especially as it was homemade. Breakfast again was one of the best I have had at a b&b along with wonderful homemade bread and jams. Beautiful views from the room. Only a short walk into Barmouth and parking available outside the b&b. If not there is a car park just round the corner. Would recommend.

Warmth of welcome & charming hospitality throughout - the best we've ever experienced in a B&B. Ideally placed for town (but not so close as to be noisy); spacious, comfortable, immaculate rooms; unmatchable views over the estuary and beyond; and memorable breakfasts!

We stumbled across Dros y Dwr on trip advisor by chance and thought the reviews looked "too good to be true" ... but this is not the case and John and Jupp absolutely deserve the glowing reports. Fantastic hosts, down to earth, willing to help and provide walking tips without being too invasive. Great breakfasts, clean and comfortable rooms with walks right from the doorstep. Great "extra's" such as a library and home cooked cakes and preserves. The views over the estuary and mountains are breath-taking. Definately recommended for outdoorsy types, a great base for Snowdonia national park.

simply superb. the warm welcome, the rooms, the house and the breakfast. could not be faulted. the view across bay to the cloud covered mountains is also spectacular. and I think a big plus, no television.

I have stayed at this B&B many times but always under previous owners Colin and Vera who made you feel like family, so John and Jupp had some big expectations to satisfy when I returned this summer. I'm delighted to say they surpassed those expectations and fully deserve their number 1 spot on trip advisor. The rooms are immaculate with incredible views across the estuary, the breakfasts are fantastic and will keep you going all day (the bread and preserves are all home-made) and the welcome could not be warmer. If there is a room free grab it!

Room Tip: All 3 rooms are excellent.

The place itself is beautifully decorated and immaculately maintained. The room was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed. And the view from the window was breathtaking. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious and generous. John and Jupp are very generous hosts and gave us lots of information and stories about the local area which we greatly enjoyed. Parking was no bother at all and the dogs lovely and no trouble. Would absolutely recommend it. Couldn't fault it in any way.

Room Tip: All the rooms have great views
