  • "It was nice when messaging at 3 to check checking in times to get a reply to say the property was already ready for us so benefited from an early check in however we would much rather have had the property cleaned properly, on arrival there was random dog food biscuits in the down stairs room on the floor, we had to pick dog poo up from the garden as kids found when playing, we also had to clean the dish washer out prior to using as it was full of food, in addition the wardrobe in the kids room was unusable as the wooden slats were broken and had sharps bits on this, upstairs shower in the main bathroom filled up when in use due to plug being caked in hair and grime had to be fully removed in order to use, the decking area extremely dangerous meaning our children couldn’t play safely in the garden, our 3 year old actually got his foot stuck in the end where it is all rotten, the grass was also very overgrown the property does not resemble the pictures viewed prior to booking, the hot tub was also not emptied cleaned and refilled as stated in the description as the water turned green this was bought to the attention for us to be blamed for, resulted in us emptying cleaning and refilling ourselves which took a day of its use."

    i did bring many things to the attention throughout the stay but constantly felt was messaging so our group tried to make the most of our holiday still as a result we found ourselves going out most days as the garden was not suitable for children to play in. The property is a great size and all bedrooms are spacious enough however the property requires a lot of TLC and maintenance.

    Thank you for the feedback, which we welcome and seek to use to correct any faults and make improvements to our service. Unfortunately this visit coincided with wet weather, and this limited the opportunity to cut the grass, which we normally seek to do every two weeks. We don’t understand the reference to dog biscuits found on the floor: our housekeeper takes photographs in each of the rooms on each changeover and none of these photos show any evidence of dog biscuits on the floor. Our maintenance man empties and refills the hottub each week, treating it with the appropriate chemicals. He tells us that he checked with the guests and was told all was OK. Later that day we were messaged to say that the water was green. There was no apparent reason for this, (sometimes this is caused by pollution from make up or fake tan) but our maintenance man attended promptly and dealt with the hottub. It is not clear why the guests chose to empty and refill the hottub, but they did so without using the necessary chemicals, which created hygiene risks for themselves. Half of the decking in the garden was replaced /repaired last Spring. The remainder is scheduled for replacement at the end of the season. Any deficiencies in the current decking are very minor and should not be a health and safety issue. We are surprised at the reference to the website photos – these photos were taken by Sykes in the Spring and we are not aware of any material differences in the property now. Although the slats at the foot of the wardrobe were damaged the wardrobe was otherwise usable and we arranged for their repair as soon as we identified the damage and this was repaired on the day that the guests left the property. We are sorry for the issues identified with the dishwasher and the shower. We try to spot these issues, but sometimes these are not readily apparent at changeover. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous time here as it gave us a chance to be together with many of our family members."

    We were incredibly happy with the hit tub which we made use of every day really. The different living spaces allowed us to spread out when we wanted and also come together in the large main living room when we wanted. The bedrooms were spacious and the kitchen had pretty much all we needed. We enjoyed the place so much that we have already booked again for next year.

  • "Perfectly described on Sykes."

    House was wonderful. We all loved the lay out. A couple of moans about uncomfortable beds but owner is already informed. Hot tub in its space especially, was a massive hit for our group. BBQ area also in perfect space and we did use it. Plenty of tables and chairs for all to sit upon. Bathrooms were welcomed and described to a T. Bedrooms all as described with fresh bedding. Towels were also provided. Kitchen area is the hub of the house. We were able to cook everything in 2 sitings. All amenities as described. Our group had a great time. We always find it hard to get together as a family but staying here solved our problem. Thank you so much, I am already considering other dates to come back. Anji xx

  • "This was a great location for exploring Anglesey."

    The views were spectacular from the property, and the beaches - readily awaiting our doggy walks - were just a 10 minute drive away. The house was very spacious and easily accommodated the eight of us comfortably without ever feeling cramped or that we were on top of each other. Most of our little maintenance niggles were dealt with both swiftly and efficiently; the owner of the property rapidly responded to our messages and sorted things out very quickly. This was much appreciated, thank you. Overall, we had a wonderful time.

    It was a very high standard of accommodation and the owner was very caring and made contact to see if we had everything we needed. The hot tub and games provided were a great hit too. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. We even managed to appreciate the periods of good weather. Anglesey is a favourite place. Will definitely be back.

    However cleanliness and maintenance were severely lacking. It was a lovely property with fantastic facilities and could be perfect with a bit of care from the owners.

    No cleanliness or maintenance issues were raised by these guests whilst they were staying or since. Nevertheless a deep clean will be carried out at the first opportunity. Property Owner

  • "We really liked the spacious accommodation and good sized bedrooms."

    We loved the hot tub and excellent location. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well-equipped and perfect for our needs. But we thought it needed some TLC and a deeper clean in some areas.The plug in the upstairs bathroom didn't fit and the ensuite toilet wobbled. A handle from the patio door fell off so we couldn't use it. The bar area was very shabby and the decking rotten...probably through use of the hose. We were also surprised at the lack of basics like barbecue charcoal, pillows and plenty of loo rolls...bring your own!! Two beds at least definitely need new mattresses ..important with so much use! Finally the dishwasher is very difficult to close when full and a good cut of the grass is needed. These are very small items which would make a big difference and give better value for money. Having said that we loved our week and these were minor irritations in the scheme of things.

    The kitchen is well supplied with plenty of crockery and cutlery for 9 of us. Theres plenty of rooms and space to relax, although we spent the majority of our time in the lovely big kitchen eating, drinking and playing games.

  • "The property could do with some tlc, very dirty too."

    There were old cobwebs and dead spiders in the corner of downstairs ceilings. Neighbour very rude and said she was fed up of people parking here every week. It was very cold, windows are draughty. Tv kept losing signal, they need a satellite or a free view box. Beautiful surroundings but the property was disappointing.

    These guests were very complimentary when they were at the property, describing it as "lovely", so the negativity of this review is a surprise. The house is cleaned carefully at each changeover, with photos taken to demonstrate the cleanliness. This winter we have decorated the hall stairs and landing and put in a new bathroom. They alerted us to their problem with the heating. We called out a heating engineer immediately who reported to us that the heating was working fine except for one radiator where the valve was stuck. A new boiler was fitted last November. I can only assume they didn't understand the controls. We tested the TV after the guests published this review, and the TV seemed to be working fine. There is a second TV which is also working fine. I don't know the full details of the disagreement the guests had with the neighbours so can't comment on this. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful week!"

    The home was perfect for what we wanted, and it was in a great location, close to lots of places of interest. I think the property had been decorated since we booked it too, as some of the rooms looks fresh and different from the photos. If not, then the photos on the Sykes website don’t do the property justice.

    The whole place could do with a facelift but it has everything you could possibly want. Garage/shop just 5 min drive from the property means you don’t have to travel too far for your essentials and they stock everything!! There’s plenty of room inside the property - there were 7 adults and a dog staying and we could all get our own space or be together in the huge kitchen. You’re never far from a good day out. Really good base to stay and we’re already thinking of our next stay here

  • "This hoilday let is OK."

    And when I say OK I mean just OK. There are lots of things wrong with this property. The hot tub was unusable on arrival it was filthy requiring it to be drained ,the outside bar area is very tired looking and only 1 light was working. The decking area needs replacing as it is rotten in places. The waste pipe from the kitchen kept coming off because it was held on with black tape which resulted in water going on to the decking. The water tank overflow pipe was constantly dripping. The showers in the property are very poor and at one point the upstairs shower stopped working. The washing machine had to be clean before we could use it. In general this could be a lovely place to stay but it's very tired looking and needs redecorating, updating and in need of general repair. And in theses times of covid a deep clean as I don't expect to go on hoilday and have to start cleaning before I can start my hoilday.

  • "On the first night we found that the bedsheets in the main bedroom were badly stained and the ensuite bathroom hadn’t been cleaned."

    Llio came in the next day and changed the bed sheets and cleaned the ensuite. There was a strange smell coming out of one of the bedrooms upstairs, but luckily didn’t need to use that room. The hot tub was great. It was clean, but was making a few grinding noises when we turned on the water pump. Overall the property if quite large, but shows signs of poor maintenance (e.g. the carpet has been replaced in the lounge, but is not large enough for the room hence you can clearly see the underlay in the corners of the room, including underneath the TV stand). There are many light bulbs that need replacing, especially in the conservatory, and all the clocks in the property don’t work. Other changes from the published pictures on Sykes include; no TV in the kitchen, many of the chairs on the dining room and kitchen have had to be replaced so there is quite a mix of chair styles now.
