  • "Overall stay very good."

    Garden furniture not great . Sofa in living room uncomfortable. Would definitely return. Lovely bungalow quiet location close to all amenities.

  • "I am very sorry this has been a disagreeable visit, we ask every customer to let us know if something isn't working."

    We use a cleaning firm recommended by Sykes so we will pass the feedback on, we do visit the property regularly but do not live there so we rely on guests to let us know.

  • "A warm and comfortable house in a quiet location."

    The pictures when we booked didn’t do it justice; the sofa and armchairs had been replaced since they were taken (the high-backed armchair was perfect for my 86-year-old mother) and we were delighted with the sunset views from the dining room window. The location was key for us as we were there to visit family and friends; it was an added bonus to have restaurants and shops within easy reach as well as the park just across the embankment and the supermarkets/retail park a short and easy drive away. There is still a little room for improvement - kitchen provision was a bit hit-and-miss (we could have done with some more large plates/table mats/coasters) and the double mattress has clearly seen better days - but, on the whole, Arwelfa exceeded our expectations and we will almost certainly return.

  • "Perfectly placed for exploring Anglesey."

    Situated on a quiet estate with a path nearby where the shore of Beddmanarch Bay was easily accessible. The sunsets from the house were amazing. The bungalow was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Would love to return one day.

  • "We had a great stay at Arwelfa."

    The Bungalow was spacious, clean and very well equipped. It was very close to a beach which looks over to Holyhead. Valley has a shop, garage and various eateries and takeaways. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "Always enjoy Alwelfa."

    Nice and comfortable, all emenetiies within 2 miles.. Birdwatching on the bay , one minute walk away, down the lane at the end of the road. And as always on Anglesey, not too far from any of the beauty spots and attractions, Llangwyn Island and Aberfraw are favourites. Owners always contactable.

  • "Dated furniture, unusable frying pan and saucepans need replacing, very comfortable double bed, but TV in bedroom could not be turned off with the remote, annoying, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher a great asset, cot in bedroom next to plug sockets very dangerous as baby's could put fingers in sockets, overall we enjoyed our stay and with a few tweaks it could be 5 star."

  • "The property was very spacious in a quiet residential street, within walking distance to a couple of pubs and the wonderful ‘Catch 22’ restaurant."

    Our sons also loved exploring the shingle muddy beach across the street. As the pictures, Sykes rating and description do indicate, furnishings and fixtures are very basic. The living room seating was particularly uncomfortable and not fit for purpose if I’m honest. However, for the price paid this property was a real bargain in Anglesey. We appreciated the smart tv, having a decent washing machine and dryer and everything you need as a family. Property was also very clean and the beds comfortable. We probably slept better as a family here than at home! Highly recommended by the Gould family.

    Very clean and comfortable bungalow. A little tired but no more than you would expect for the price. We had a great time and we were very warm and cosy in the property. A lovely quiet area right next to the beach. Very close to trearddur bay and conveniently close to Penrhos shopping area. Would definitely recommend.

  • "I reviewed other peoples feedback since we stayed here three years ago and can’t believe no one has mentioned any of the faults."

    The house was just about ok then but we only stayed there a week in winter and paid a fraction of the price we paid this time. The house is damp, there’s mould in the house to the point both my children were affected, even the shower head has mould on it and all round the shower base. The fire guard is a death trap for kids and falling apart, the draws in the bedroom falling apart, extra sheets and covers stained, the sofas old uncomfortable and thread bare, badly thread bare down to the stuffing, tumble dryer doesn’t work, we were supplied a high chair for the baby that’s covered in mould I wish they didn’t even supply it, and the heating comes on randomly even tho Programmed. The bins were an issue as the bins were all full when we got there. We paid a lot to stay here and wished we hadn’t. The place is dying for refurbishment. We left early from this place because we didn’t want to stay there any longer. It must be said that the neighbours were lovely, that’s the only plus point. We have pictures of all items mentioned.

    The "damp" is in fact and old stain and the property is being decorated in November. The property is cleaned by company that cleans to a high standard. Following this stay, we had to make repairs to the property and pay additional cleaning due to the terrible state it was left in and the removal of a large amount of refuse left in Black bin bags. We believe the by and large of this feedback arises from the fact that we refused them any compensation. Please see the other reviews, which are honest and favorable, and we welcome back many return customers on yearly basis. This customer also had the heating on full blast through the hottest weeks of the year, which lead to a large fuel bill. We also had 3 neighbours raise complaints about this family. Property Owner

    Looking a bit weary, in need of an update. Gardens need a bit of attention too. Otherwise no problems. We love the location and the layout of the property. The directions you give, say; turn right at a kayak shop? Never seen one!!. It maybe that it has changed to "Warmer Bros studios".

  • "The property was in a residential area close to the shops."

    The neighbourhood is very nice and people friendly. You have a sea view from one window in the lounge from a distance which appealed to us. The furniture is very outdated now but as we are older and used to this traditional look didn't bother us too much and also we paid less as it was out of season. If I had paid the full premium in summer I think it would have been too high as the sofa was torn and curtains dowdy. It was a pity that the dishwater didn't work despite following all the instructions. On the whole we enjoyed our stay, it was a very homely property, spacious and clean..

On Anglesey nothing is too far away, and there are numerous beautiful bays to visit. And very scenic countryside. One tiny thing..on the directions it says turn right at the Kayak shop. This is our second visit and we haven't seen a kayak shop. I think that shop is now.. Warmer Brothers Studio. A heating appliance shop.
