  • "Very clean ."

    very comfortable. Well equipped. Spectacular views over the menai straits.

  • "Overall the cottage was very neat, tidy and comfortable, we found that the extractor fan in the shower room was not working and lack of information on how to adjust the heating as some mornings were quite cold, we did figure it out but instructions would have been good, the terrace could do with a good clean, because on our first night there after it had been raining it was very slippy, a comment made by a previous guest, that would like to have used it."

    The views are well worth the stay and made it very relaxing, would I come again? no, would I recommend it? certainly.

  • "I enjoyed my stay and I would stay again."

    The property is laid out in a line with big windows overlooking the Menai Strait. I felt like I was on a ship, which was ace. I imagine it being very exciting for kids. The property was nicely kept, and the bath is, as promised, amazing. Maybe one or two things could be upgraded but overall the property is nice and the view is astounding. It transformed being 'at base' into being as good as going out. However there is a busy road on the other side. You have to be super careful with dogs (and children). Amazing views and the experience was worth the money, but I didn't open the front door unless I was super sure the dog was properly harnessed and the lead double wrapped around may hand.

  • "Fantastic location as stated."

    Needs a thorough clean/dusting. I only used the one bedroom, one with the view, a lot of dust especially in bathroom and there seems to be a problem with mould in some areas. I know this is difficult to sort but really cleaner should have sprayed those areas. I was a landlord myself for 30 years. Think one dishwasher tablet was a little mean. I did I enjoy my stay a very convenient location and the views.

  • "Its a really lovely cottage with the most spectacular views of the Straits."

    The cottage has everything you could possibly want in terms of comfort and cleanliness and some lovely extras provided by the ownerswhich were gratefully recieved! I was on my own with my dog for most of the week so lots of rest and relaxation. The only slight downside is the cloeness to the main road and had to be careful that the dog didnt escape! At present I'm walking with a stick and didt find dog walking from the cottage very easy but that said there are lovely beaches a short drive away which suited us fine ! The owners have obviously spent a lot of thought into making the property a lovely place to stay.

  • "Good points: The location of the cottage is great despite the road being very busy; just a short drive to Beaumaris and Menai Bridge."

    The selling point online was the view of the strait from the main bathroom, which is wonderful. The shower is very good. The beds are comfortable. Owner is very helpful, sorting out WI-FI password for us. Wecloming Prosecco and cake Disappointing things: Soiled furnishings, window seat cover and armchair covers Towels have a dirty smell, despite us machine washing them Broken light pull in bathroom Dead insects in bathroom Cobwebs around blinds in sitting room Rusty radiator Scuffed skirting Dirty floor around Bath Dirty windows inside and out The cottage could be amazing with more attention to detail. It definitely isn't worth the £950 + we spent for 5 nights. It promises a bit of luxury but doesn't deliver this. Our first vist to Angelsey was beautiful despite the wind and rain. Unfortunately it will be remembered for a very disappointing stay at Glan Dwr Bach and we will not be recommending it to friends and family, sorry.

    The ever changing view over the Menai Straits, the bridge and across looking towards Penryn Castle are breathtaking. The bath, also overlooking the Menai is a great treat. Bubbles with a view, literally as the lovely owner, Sally, left us a welcome gift of Prosecco and Fruit cake. The beds are super comfortable and cosy and the shower is the best I’ve ever took. It was a real home from home and our dog Annie really enjoyed her 1st holiday with a prime spot soaking up the sun on the bay window.

    The Prosecco and cake on arrival was a lovely touch, and I can't thank the owners enough for doing everything they could to resolve an issue with the TV aerial (caused by high winds) as quickly as they could, they really went out of their way to help, thanks.

    Good location and well presented, we appreciated the modern kitchen and bathrooms. Lack of soap, shampoo etc in the bathroom was a surprise, we almost expect that as standard now. Patio/terrace was nice although we didn't actually use it much. For those who need a short dog walk before breakfast, Coed Cyrnol; next to Waitrose at Menai Bridge (5 min drive) was very good.

    The view of mountains across the water is constantly changing. Patio down steps was great too (but the road is fast - expect traffic noise and then ignore it). A short drive to shops at Menai Bridge and Beaumaris for provisions - so very convenient. Beds comfortable, everything clean, well-organised, some lovely touches on arrival plus bath with a view. Hob, oven etc new and easy to operate. Only additions recommended would be silicone spoon for stirring the non-stick pans. Otherwise, a lovely stay, would happily return.

  • "We have had a wonderful week in the cottage, it was everything we expected and more."

    The addition of a newly fitted kitchen with full size fridge freezer and every cooking accessory we needed was a massive bonus, and the newly finished private patio was a real surprise. As others have already commented, the views from every window on the coast side of the cottage are amazing, and even when the weather wasn’t the best, we found ourselves gazing out watching the clouds and boats passing by our windows! We did not find the noise from passing traffic to be too intrusive, although the cottage is adjacent to the main road to Beaumaris. This is a small price to pay for the excellent views and really handy location for exploring the island and the nearby Snowdonia countryside. As a person who has some mobility issues, I personally found the accommodation to be excellent, with everything on (almost) the one level, and the effort the owner has put into creating the private patio is to be commended. We are already looking at booking our next break here at the cottage and we haven’t finished this holiday yet! Thanks for letting us share your fabulous home and we can’t wait to come back!

The cottage has been so well planned out - our son came with us and he had his own “separate “ wing - which gave us all our privacy. If I could permanently move in tomorrow I would.

    We really enjoyed our time from the moment that we set foot inside the property our expectations were met! A cosy cottage with beautiful views from all of the rooms. There was a bit of a draught from the main door and it is on a main road so you can hear vehicles zooming past on an evening from the rooms at the front of the house, but this wasn't a nuisance. Some nice touches in the cottage included a pair of binoculars to ogle the lovely views. The kitchen facilities were excellent and we were not short of anything. We were also provided with a little play pen for the baby which was great. I would recommend and would love to revisit in the summer. Oh yes the bathtub and view was amazing :)

It definitely hadn’t been cleaned to a ‘Covid-19’ standard and so we spent a couple of hours cleaning with our own products in the kitchen and getting rid of the cobwebs we could reach. We loved the property and the linen was lovely, but the lack of cleanliness let the property down. Also the lack of WiFi was very annoying.

    I will certainly recommend Glan Dwr Bach for the views and the quality of accommodation, these were excellent. Please mention to owners the dripping tap in kitchen - not a problem for us, at all, but I’m sure someone will complain. I’ve used Menai Holidays for years and never had a problem, they have always exceeded my expectations. This time I am far from happy that I had spotted GDB was not shaded out on the booking website, the week before we were travelling. This was resolved, eventually. I was told it had not been shaded out due to joining up with Sykes! There was absolutely not need for me to have been put in a stressful situation, the week before travel, and there still has been no formal apology. It was merely brushed off with ‘at least the property is free’. YES it should be free for me and my family as I booked and paid for it months ago. I do feel the latter should be shared with Menai Holidays themselves, as I say after years of no difficulties I feel that this blip, having merged with Sykes, and the response given is far from acceptable for such a previously professional business. I have paid a lot of money for a gorgeous property and expect a much better standard of ‘voice to voice’ customer service and a formal apology for such a basic confusion. Luckily for Skye’s and Menai Holiday GDB was not double booked!

    Nicely laid out for four people. There were a few things lacking. There was no welcome package with manuals. No mirror in the shower room and no light above the mirror in the bathroom with tub. We did not mind not having a dishwasher but there was no washing up bowl and no dish washing liquid. Only a couple of tea towels and the pedal bin would not stay closed. Also, the addition of a salad spinner would be good. We loved our stay in Glyn Dwr Bach and hope this helps.
