    The hot tub was a big hit with the kids.

  • "What a super cottage!"

    We’d stayed at Hen Gilfach 10 years ago and loved it so much we decided to return. The addition of the en-suite to the downstairs King size bedroom and the 10 seater hot tub were massive plus points! We go away every year as a group of friends and this was the best hot tub we’ve had in over 10 years. Cottage was exceptionally clean, everything that we needed (there’s even a blender and 3 tier steamer in the kitchen!) All beds were comfy. Cottage even has a selection of board games, books and DVDs. The only very minor thing is that there’s only an under the counter fridge and a table top one - not really enough room if it’s all adults staying and there’s Prosecco & lager to chill ;-). But this is very very minor and didn’t detract from a great weekend away. Thanks for such a great place!

  • "Wonderful property in a tranquil location."

    Family of eight stayed at this cottage from toddlers to grandparents and had a great holiday. Facilities and the layout are perfect for two family's with ground floor having a shower room servicing the two ground floor bedrooms of which one also has an en-suite. The first floor has an extremely large family bathroom which services the remaining three first floor bedrooms. Also this property has a brilliant outdoor space for the children to play with slide, swing and hob tub to keep them occupied. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

  • "The house was great,gardens are good and the hot tub has great views."

    It is in a rather remote location,15-20 minutes from a main road.The directions from the owner are spot on and you need to follow them to the letter,a lot of the roads are single track so you need to look out for vehicles coming towards you. Overall a great stay..

  • "We had a lovely time at the cottage and there were so much things to entertain the kids - the outside play area, the doll's house and the hot tub of course."

    We were disappointed that the previous guest had damaged the hot tub, but we could still sit in it as it was still warm and relaxing. We were given compensation for this. The location was lovely and the views were amazing. We thought that the cottage however had not been cleaned to the best of standard (given that cleanliness is so important now with threat of covid 19). There were drinks leftover in the fridge, and the bbq had not been cleaned. Having said this, we would return and we had a lovely holiday.

  • "Everything was just as portrayed online with the added bonus of toys and dollhouses for the children."

    Nothing had been overlooked and every eventuality had been catered for. The kitchen was well equipped and the whole house was beautifully decorated and maintained. The hot tub was amazing and checked daily by the owner to ensure it was working properly and was santised correctly. Nothing was too much trouble for the attentive owners. We received a lovely welcome pack of wine and chocolates, a card and fresh flowers from the garden. We were a group of 10 (6 adults and 4 small children) it was our first holiday since before lockdown and was definitely just what the Dr ordered! We are already talking about a return trip to this beautiful holiday home!! Thoroughly recommend!!

  • "The cottage was decorated to a very high standard, fixtures and fittings were beautiful."

    They had everything you required and my guests thoroughly enjoyed staying there. A few downsides. The smell outside was constant for the whole of our stay (don't know if it was the septic tank). The bottom step (flagstone) into the cottage needs fixing/concreting into place, as my elderly aunt nearly had a fall, as it wobbled. The quilts (although beautiful) were too warm and could possibly be changed for lighter ones in summer months.

    This lovely house was the perfect fit for our family get together, with ages ranging from 6 months to 94 years. Fortunately the weather was mostly dry and sunny, but had it not been Tracy had supplied plenty of books, DVDs and board games to entertain us. The play area outside and the bedroom with a dolls house and toys were loved by my granddaughter and last but not least, the hot tub was amazing and had gorgeous views of the countryside and sea beyond. We were sad to leave!

  • "Would be 5 but for the very bumpy track to the apartment and the fact that it is advertised as a peaceful location which it is until families in the 5 bedrooms barn located close by enjoy their holiday."

    We couldn't relax outside as we felt we were overlooking them whilst admiring the views and the noise of children playing broke the peace. Feel that this needs to be made clearer, as lovely as the Stable is we would not of booked.

  • "Attractive photos presented by Menai Holiday unfortunately the reality was different."

    The downstairs two bedrooms had a damp fungus smell. One of the bedroom was particularly very bad as the mould was all over the window, with black dirt, dust and cobweb so our little one had to move upstairs due to her asthma. There is a serious luck of lighting in the downstairs shower room. Again mould all behind the sink, shower cubical, tiles which clearly is not being dealt with. I could provide photos but I do not want to completely put people off. I sincerely hope it will be dealt with as Menai Holiday and the owner have been informed. Kitchen again very bad lighting and flickering little ceiling light. So cooking during a date is fine but if you come to the cottage later on you seriously find it difficult. The dirt track which leads to a house was particularly bad! We have been to many places all over the Wales and Anglesey but that was something one off. (we have 4x4) the view is lovely if you have the weather to sit outside but it does not have a lovely maintain feel around the property. Our children were looking forward to using the outdoor play area which was not there( no one informed us about it) There will be a new one being build. For £1200 per week we certainly did not feel it was worth of money. We believe you get what you pay but that's was not the case. From our view we would not go back and not recommend it to our friends even thought we still had a great time as we try to blank it all.

  • "We had a lovely time and the house was a good size and set-up for us (four couples each with a baby/toddler)."

    The only issues we wanted to pick up on were that the septic tank outside is located right next to the (lovely) children's play area and it was rather smelly at times. The other issue we had was that with 8 adults there was only one shower (in the downstairs bathroom). There was plenty of space to install one in the main bathroom upstairs which we would highly recommend. I appreciate there's a shower head on the bath upstairs but it's not the most practical for an adult. Great for kids though. These were the only downsides to a lovely stay. The house is very well equipped, the hot tub was lovely and warm, extremely clean and had a wonderful view of the sunsets in the evenings. Great location near to some of the most beautiful beaches. We'd highly recommend the Wavecrest Cafe and Lobster Pot as well as the Oyster Catcher. Thanks for a lovely week away.
