  • "Sundowner is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature."

    The views and sunset from the balcony are stunning. The chalet has everything you need. You couldn’t ask for more. Great location for visiting other towns and attractions.

    The chalet was a perfect base for our family of 5, we were able to go and do lots of sightseeing around North Wales, we couldn't have asked for more

  • "Sundowner provided an excellent base for exploring the region."

    The cabin is situated in a good location over looking the lake in the Glan Gwna park and as such is very peaceful and relaxing especially when sat on the decking after a hectic day out. The cabin was very clean, bed was very comfortable as was the living room furniture. Everything required to prepare meals was available in the kitchen. Had a great holiday and would recommend.

  • "A tranquil setting yet giving easy access to the coast and everything Snowdonia has to offer."

    As the name suggests, the deck is the perfect place to sit in the evening and enjoy the sunset.

  • "No gas for BBQ,expected to pay for electricity if it ran out,not able to use all appliances at the same time,only just enough room for two people certainly not enough for five!"

    no room to store food in kitchen and not very clean!

    Thank you for your feedback, it is important to us. The BBQ gas is kept topped up in the patio storage. We do not leave it out because we don’t want it stolen (it does happen). If it has run out or cannot be found the guests should phone Nikki – her number is prominently displayed in the property. We explain the situation with electricity in the brochure that is left in the chalet. The electricity supply is by card meter and cannot be upgraded, it is the same for all the chalets in the park. It is not impossible for the supply to run out and our suggestion about the card purchase is a suggestion to help them out if the power we have purchased for them does run out. If the guests don’t want to buy a card the answer is to call Nikki (unless it’s the middle of the night) and she will top up the meter. The chalet is as it is and cannot be enlarged. The photographs show the extent of kitchen cupboards and guests should make sure that the chalet is for them before they book. The chalet can accommodate five and has done in the past without complaints. This is a complaint we can do nothing about as it relates to the Menai presentation of the property. The housekeeper cleans the chalet scrupulously with all required Covid-19 precautions including PPI and full sanitization of surfaces and equipment. It is not acceptable to make statements like this without photographs or other evidence to back it up. Property Owner

  • "Sundowner was ideally located overlooking the lake, a perfect spot to enjoy an evening drink on the balcony as the sun went down."

    Accommodation was spotless. Kitchen was fully equipped with every piece of cooking equipment you could think of. Nice hot spacious shower and very comfortable bed! Only a 20 minute walk into town. Would definitely stay here again.

  • "Generally fine, however the oven was filthy, every time I put it on a load of horrible smelling steam came out the back."

    Some of the cooking trays in the oven were also filthy, and actually had mould growing on them. The oven needs a deep clean.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. We endeavour to replace oven wear when required and the set in the chalet was very new so we were not pleased to hear that it was not up to standard. We have investigated and rectified all of the issues raised, including having the oven professionally cleaned and hope that you visit us again soon. Property Owner
