A beautifully presented small hotel in a great location – and a great restaurant!


Love Lane Dolgellau Gwynedd LL40 1RR 01341 421 774

We say

This old stone rectory, now home to a small boutique hotel, would be a lovely place to stay wherever it was located, but its location in Dolgellau, at the foot of the Cader Idris mountain and not far from the sea, makes it extra-special. Its six bedrooms are thoughtfully decorated in a manner that's designed to be both inkeeping with the Victorian property but artfully contemporary too, with free wifi, iPod docks, DVD players and play stations (they have a library), and all decorated in a different style. To be honest we're in awe of the personality they have given the rooms here, with each one as different from the last as you could imagine, varying from the cultured orientalism of Annis to the cool simplicity of Hazel. You have robes and slippers in your room, freestanding baths or enormous showers – sometimes both – and there's a hot tub in the garden. Facilities also include a range of popular in-room beauty and wellbeing treatments. 

They have also recently opened a restaurant that is open for dinner from Thursday through to Monday and offers a great menu of local and seasonal Welsh dishes paired with carefully selected wines from small specialist producers. Not for nothing is Ffynnon located on Love Lane – it's about a romantic a small hotel as you could wish for.
