A railway hotel of c1865-70 located nearly opposite the now disused station. The Newtown to Machnynlleth Railway reached Cemmaes Road in 1863, and was subsequently incorporated into the Cambrian Railway. Cambrian Railways then built a branch line from Dinas Mawddwy to Cemmaes Road which opened in 1867.

Inside the porch is a panelled door with plain overlight. Flanking and upper storey windows are 12-pane hornless sashes in raised surrounds. Attached to the R of the porch is a post supporting a sign reading 'Dovey Valley Hotel / free house'.
