Welcome to the Buckley Arms Hotel


A warm welcome awaits you at The Buckley Arms. Built as a hotel in 1873 this family run accommodation has much charm and character. We are sure you will enjoy your stay and leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Nestling within the beautiful Dyfi Valley, with the River Dyfi (Dovey) located behind the Hotel we are situated on the edge of the village of Dinas Mawddwy, Gwynedd, within the stunning scenery of the Snowdonia National Park, just off the A470 midway between Dolgellau and Machynlleth.

Whether you want relaxing, invigorating, energetic or just a get away from it all break, we are here to help make it happen. Relax in our sitting room decorated in a Gentlemans’ Club style with leather chesterfields and low tables, or maybe while away the time in our small library. Perhaps try an old fashioned parlour game before dinner! Free WiFi is available in all public areas if you feel the need to connect to the outside world.

Unfortunately we cannot accept pets for overnight stays, however we are able to arrange local kennels so your pet can have a holiday too. Assistance dogs are always welcome to stay and well behaved dogs are welcome in our bar. A border collie named Tilly, lives here and always enjoy meeting new friends!
