The Inspector’s feedback and favourite

We recently received a visit to our holiday cottages in Snowdonia National Park from the equivalent of TV’s “The Hotel Inspector” – an Assessor from Visit Wales. The Inspectors come to look at quality and comfort for visitors – using their wealth of experience and sharp eyes!

Our team worked hard preparing all four of the holiday cottages here at Graig Wen. We also invited the Inspector to see our new cottage in Dolgellau for the first time.  We were absolutely delighted with all the 4 and 5 star grades achieved – and especially to find out which cottage was the Inspector’s favourite. He reported he found “pristine housekeeping throughout” and that “all areas continue to be maintained to a very good standard”.

Making the Grade

Little Haven once again achieved a 5 star rating – with its luxurious fittings and fabulous view, it’s no wonder this is our most re-booked cottage.

Small Barn achieved a top 4 star rating – investments in improvements to the kitchen and decor over the winter went down very well.

Ty’r Adâr also achieved a 4 star rating with 85% score as did Pine Cottage. To achieve 4 stars, a score of 75% is needed so we’re really pleased with the 85% score.

Improvements made to the cottages over the winter, include significant investment in a water borehole and re-plumbing to improve water pressure to showers and bath. It’s good to see our efforts recognised and, most importantly, we’re getting amazing feedback from guests enjoying their holidays:


Cosy, comfortable, well equipped, and exceptionally clean cottage in a jaw- dropping, pinch yourself, magical location. It’s so good you almost don’t want anyone to know!!!

The Inspector’s Favourite

But which cottage was the Inspector’s favourite?

We are particularly thrilled that it was our new cottage in Dolgellau that the Inspector fell in love with. This is the cottage owned by John’s Dad which we have lovingly refurbished.


“A compact cottage that has been most attractively refurbished and presented by the owners ideally positioned for availing one of Dolgellau town and the surrounding countryside.Family ceramics and pictures all add to the Sense of Place.”
