Success stories

Dolforwyn Hall Country House

Dolforwyn Hall Country House

Since purchasing Dolforwyn Hall Country House, I have been very impressed by the warm welcome shown to us not only by everyone in the local area but also especially thrilled by the proactive support from Business Wales, who have been a revelation for the new business in terms of advice, directing and connecting me swiftly to expert resources and overall by providing a consistently positive and encouraging approach. Their enthusiastic and professional team is great to work with.

As a Grade 1 listed building, Dolforwyn Hall Country House offers the perfect country retreat if you’re looking for a getaway. And owner, Ken Jacobson, wants to make sure that the hotel is accessible for all staff and its guests. Wanting to know more about recruiting people with a disability, and ensuring the hotel met those standards, Ken contacted Business Wales to find out what support was available. 

Thanks to his Disabled Peoples’ Employment Adviser, they have now signed up to the Disability Confident Scheme to help them with recruitment, and they’ve also signed up for the Equality and Diversity pledge.
