  • "A beautiful little cottage with stunning views."

    We arrived for our stay to a lovely welcome hamper, bottle of bubbles and some chocolates. Each room was decorated lovely and had its own character. We did look around but there wasn’t any instructions / comments left in the property which I think would’ve been useful as we didn’t know the area and with the property not having Wi-Fi I could look things up. Our first night was lovely and the additional touches of fairy lights in the garden were really great. We stayed in the master bedroom at the front of the property. One negative thing I would say is that this property is on a busy main road and the hotel opposite often has deliveries etc so we woke up to a loud lorry reversing and the cars speeding down the road - this isn’t something anyone could sleep through and we had the windows closed so many double glazing to shield some of that noise? There was sufficient bedding and towels left which were great as well as cleaning supplies in the kitchen! We spent most evenings in the hot tub enjoying the view and with the beautiful garden it felt so secluded and private it was wonderful. As mentioned earlier with the instructions, we left the property clean and emptied the indoor bin etc but there were no specifics left.. it wasn’t until I got home and had Wi-Fi again that an email came through from Sykes with checkout instructions.. this was a gap. I would suggest getting Wi-Fi or leaving clear instructions for checking out. All in all, We had a wonderful stay and I would love to visit again.

  • "Fantastic cottage!"

    Would almost say perfect if it had Wi-Fi and a larger TV but that said all the extras the owner had done, especially the basket of food, were a nice touch. Without doubt strongly recommend for a lovely, relaxing holiday.

  • "We enjoyed our stay on the whole, the cottage was quirky but I felt it needed a deep clean."

    The main areas were clean but it could do with a freshen up generally. The car parking spot was definitely unsuitable for unloading the car safely and I wouldn’t have liked getting children in and out of a car on that busy road. We had no television service, and decided to come home early cutting our stay short by 3 days.

  • "Great location."

    .hot tub good nice touches with the various seating areas outside. Great idea with bar/viewing area by hot tub. Inside was nicely decorated with plenty of space for us. The kitchen area was well equipped. The front bedroom (4 poster bed) could do with a new mattress and also Wifi would be good.

  • "Lacking some basic items - salt and pepper for example."

    Basic utensils in kitchen. The two sofas in the living room were absolutely wrecked and possibly the most uncomfortable I have ever sat on. The house in general needs some basic maintenance - decking boards rotten front door does not close properly leaving a 8mm gap at the top for the fraught to blow through. Lots of nice touches and lovely welcome pack. Cottage was damp and heating not very effective. Having said all that we go on holiday with the intention to gave a good time which we did.

  • "Lovely week with glorious weather."

    This cottage has made a huge effort with the outside, there are lots of nice seating areas available at different levels, most with a fantastic view over the Menai Straits. The hot tub is very private but enables you to have a fabulous view whilst enjoying the spa with a drink. We were lucky to have fabulous weather all week so enjoyed the outside space. The steps make it not accessible for older guests or small children. Unfortunately the description of the cottage does not highlight the road it is on, and the traffic noise is all day and then through to late evening, parking is also tricky especially when you have two vehicles like we did. The cottage itself has a well equipped kitchen, and a really nice upstairs with two double bedrooms and a nice bathroom. Downstairs it needs new furniture in its lounge and to sort out the damp small bedroom.

  • "We have just returned from a week in the cottage, had a fabulous time with the lucky weather we had."

    The outside space, terrace, hot tub and views are wonderful. We made the most of being out there! Really nice touch was arriving to many hamper snacks, bread, jams, crisps, chocolates and bottles of bubbles and Buck’s Fizz! We struggled a little with the cleaniness of some parts of the cottage, not all. The bathroom shower cubicles had mucky walls and the downstairs smaller bedroom was extremely damp. It must have a leak somewhere as there are water stains on the ceiling and walls ( main bathroom is directly above this bedroom) from previous leaks and a mould build up on the child’s high chair which was stored in this room. This room also had a stale smell unfortunately. That said, it’s a lovely location and with a few small cleaning and maintainable changes it’s a gem of a cottage!

  • "It’s a gorgeous cottage, one of the rooms is tiny so probs best for a single person to stay in the downstairs room."

    No shops or places to get food from in the immediate vicinity so you’ll need to plan meals ahead or take stuff with you. There’s a second cottage attached to the back of this. We managed to get a noise complaint from them so probably not the best place to go if you want to drink and chill with a few mates. Owner lives right behind and he occasionally stuck his head in. He ended up stropping because we took the wrong blankets outside (apparently there’s inside and outside blankets) I would recommend labelling them. All in all great place, owner is actually lovely, but it reminded me of going away with a chaperone. Would recommend to couples looking for a very quiet weekend.

  • "Says big enough for 6 but that would have been a very tight squeeze for 6 adults as the downstairs bedroom is tiny we only ended up being 4 for the weekend and then 3 for the rest of the stay which worked out well."

    On initial sight the cottage looks lovely, the upstairs is very well presented but downstairs lets it down, it needs a complete revamp. The bedroom is very damp, we wondered why all the windows were open when we arrived but we now know why! The lounge needs an overhaul, it is very cramped and the sofas are well past their best, you sink into them when you sit down. It is a lovely place just needs a little love showing to the downstairs.

  • "We were a party of 6 me my partner, my daughter her partner and two young children."

    The cottage was perfect for us - well appointed - kids slept in the downstairs bedroom with their own en-suite and adults used the two beautifully furnished upstairs rooms. The bathroom was stunning. The cottage was well equipped with a lovely welcome basket to greet us. The gardens were so pretty a.though the hot tub wasn’t in use that didn’t really bother us. The views from the cottage were stunning and it was a joy to come home to every evening. Even though it is late on in the year we were still able to have drinks outside early evening and I guess it would be near perfect in the summer . We all enjoyed our week very much even though England lost the Rugby World Cup to RSA

  • "We booked a hottub holiday what we got was a disgusting dirty soft tub which was still broken from feedback left in august."

    the double glazing does nothing to stop the noise from the road and the consistent unloading of refrigeration lorries to the hotel. The main bedroom bed and both sofas need replacing. There is no freezer in the cottage. A small one is located outside up 3flights of stairs in a grotty shed handy when you want an icecube... And really no WiFi unbelievable.

  • "I received a phone call today telling me that the owner noticed we had been using the hot tub and that the owner did not want it to be used at this time of year."

    When I booked the property the week before, the property included the hot tub and didn't say anything about the time of year restrictions. When we arrived we received a welcome basket, which had all the manuals and instructions to all appliances and hot tub. The tub was not filled when we arrived which we thought was because it had just been cleaned. We were very disappointed we had to fill and wait 36 hours until we could use the tub-specially when it was advertised as available. We thought oh well, with the views and how well presented and welcomed we felt, then it's just one of those things. We arrived on monday and now on thursday when are over half way through our stay (we leave saturday) the owner comes round when we have popped out, then contacts you to contact us to tell us off. I did receive an apology from Abigail your staff member for contacting me about the owners concerns. Think its bad that the owner comes round to check up on you, not very relaxing and now has really upset my/our visit and experience. There was no need to contact us we had done nothing wrong and I had to take time out of my holiday to try and get through to your office and be put on hold. Not relaxing and a violation of privacy. I was raving about this property and location to my family and friends, taking pictures and saying everyone you need to come and stay here!!... now I dont think I will be returning! After being falsely accused and the lack of privacy. I hope this does get feed back to the owner and I would like a response as this has now really disturbed my holiday and the other guests. Is someone just going to turn up again without warning? Kind regards Katie Higgins

  • "The cottage was presented lovely and the welcome basket was a nice touch to receive on arrival."

    But there was a strong damp smell in the downstairs bedroom and visible damp in the adjoining ensuite meaning my two children had to share one of the upstairs bedrooms (meaning less sleep for them and myself and partner). The cottage had lots of heavy cobwebs in most rooms which we could have dealt with. But the real issue was the hot tub... It's filter, jets and lights did not work for our entire stay and given it wasn't warm enough to use for long on our first night meant 24 hours later the water was murky and on our last night you could feel and see scum and slime on the water's surface. This was a luxury we were wanting to take full advantage of and couldn't. So we effectively had a standard 2 bedroom cottage without any extras but were charged for a 3 bedroom cottage with luxury hot tub.

    30am it's daylight in the room, had to go out and buy 4 eye masks. Far to many cushions, 17 in the front room, 18 in the upstairs bedrooms! Very cluttered front room, house has so much potential but is used poorly with terrible furniture choice. Downstairs bedroom stunk of damp. Duct tape on the cracked toilet, loose bathroom taps. No wifi all week. Nice house but bit annoyed it wasn't up to scratch.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback we appreciate it. The issues have been dealt with although one thing to note is that Rhianfa Cottage does not have WIFI. Property Owner

    Sofas probably need replacing also if 5 plus people were staying there wouldn’t be adequate seating. Bed in front master bedroom is very uncomfortable, mattress needs replacing which is such a shame as the master bedroom is gorgeous. Welcome basket is a lovely touch. Personally wouldn’t book this cottage again unless mattress was changed. Love Menai holidays though and will continue to book every year

  • "The cottage had been renovated but to a poor standard and was tarted up with accessories."

    The cottage was small and the dining table was under the stairs along with cleaning equipment, two chairs would not fit under the length of the table. The mattress in the main bedroom needs replacing, mentioned before in visitors book. The cottage needs blinds which are not broken, as the curtains are for effect and the lights from the road keep you awake. The fairy lights on the bushes outside also kept my daughter awake as there was no blind at the window. Deliveries to the Chateau were very noisy and some very early in the morning. The extractor in the downstairs bedroom is very noisy when there is any wind. The master bedroom doors would not shut properly and almost blew open when there was a wind. The front door was difficult to lock! Having to wash Dirty pans in the oven did not add to the experience. The welcome hamper would have been a nice touch had the cottage lived up to our expectations. We are used to high standards set by Yorkshire Cottages.

    We arrived to find a welcome hamper which was a nice surprise. The only real negative point is the noise from the road which does wake you up quite early. There is also a hotel directly across the road which has lorry deliveries from 6am. The main bedrooms would also benefit from having blinds fitted on the skylight windows.

The property

This gorgeous holiday cottage near Menai Bridge sits on the side of a hill, with lovely views over the Menai Strait.

The multi-level garden is the perfect vantage point for looking out to sea, and the hot tub on the top level makes a great place for a glass of wine in the sunshine! The pretty kitchen is well equipped with gas cooker, microwave, dishwasher and fridge with freezer compartment, and a dining area with table and four chairs.

There is an electric log burner effect stove. The sitting room is furnished with comfy leather sofas, and has French doors that open onto the garden. There is a small downstairs bedroom with small double bed (can be tight for 2), and a small en-suite shower, WC and basin. There are two further bedrooms upstairs.

The front bedroom, which benefits from fantastic sea views, is really special.

It has white-washed floorboards, a white four-poster bed and matching furniture, and a wrought iron terrace to sit out on.

The other double bedroom is at the back of the house and continues the white, almost fairytale theme.

There is a large family bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate bath.

The multi-level garden enjoys wonderful views over the Menai Strait.

It has a decking area with garden furniture and a hot tub for relaxing under the stars! Rhianfa Cottage is in a great spot if you wish to be near plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants.

Menai Bridge is just five minutes along the coast, and Beaumaris is the same in the opposite direction.

Be sure to visit the Janet Bell Gallery in Beaumaris and the superb Central Bakery.

Menai Bridge has lots of shops and cafes.

We recommend tea and a cake at Pot Jam after a walk under the famous Thomas Telford Bridge! If you don't fancy jumping in the car, then The Gazelle is a short walk from the house, and is a really great spot to sit and watch the boats sail past while enjoying a drink or a bite to eat.

For golfers, there are two great courses within a ten minute drive. Guests are advised that as the hot tubs need to be cleaned and emptied for each new set of guests, the water may not be fully up to temperature on the first evening of their stay.
