    “We'd like to leave a detailed review as there is only one on your site for this property and we usually rely on reviews when booking holiday accommodation.”


    The apartment was very comfortable and had everything you could need. The kitchen is well equipped and the pans and knives are of a good quality for holiday cooking. There is an iron and ironing board plus a clothes airer so doing any washing is easy. The bed was very comfortable and there is plenty of storage. The shower is good with plenty of hot water but there was variable pressure at times - but nothing to put you off staying here. The views from the window are wonderful. You can see the harbour and the steam trains in the distance. The area gets busy on sunny days but is quiet in the nights. It is just a very short walk into town and to the train station and the beaches at Borth-Y-Gest and so is an ideal location. There is parking available in the courtyard and there is a small table with chairs for sitting out but this area is shaded so we preferred to sit on the benches across the road. The place was very clean when we arrived and was supplied with handwash etc to help keep Covid safe. We could sometimes hear the people in the apartment above us moving about a little but this was certainly not an issue. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Caernarfon 19 miles.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, Porthmadog is full of individual shops and restaurants, and home to the Ffestiniog Railway, where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog. The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short walk or drive from the town. The well known and unique Italianate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
