  • "We stayed at Rhiwlas after the house we originally booked was unavailable."

    There are lots of positive points about the house, bedrooms and bathrooms have been refreshed and the beds were comfortable. There is also lots of space in the kitchen/ dining area. The living room needs a little work, it is a little shabby, the sofas are uncomfortable with springs protruding in places, the raw plug for the blind has come away so it is hanging down. The shower curtains could do to be replaced in the bathrooms that have them, the bunk beds were also extremely rickety. There was no information about bin collection and 1 wheelie bin was not enough for 9 people. I had to contact Sykes and they said to leave extra rubbish for the housekeepers. The garden is a great area for the sun, but not a place in which you would spend any time. Clip missing to secure blind cord in bunk bed room, hand rail on the landing is also loose. Rhiwlas has the potential to be a great house, just would benefit from a little more improvement.

    Thank you for your feedback following your stay. We have looked at all of the points you raised and addressed the following. The blinds in the living room and bunk room have been repaired, as well as, the balustrade. We are also looking into re-upholstering the living room chairs. The bunk beds were checked and were found to be fit for purpose and safe. The bin information has been addressed and we are looking to make some improvements to the back garden. Thank you again for your comments and we hope to welcome you back to Rhiwlas in the future. Property Owner

  • "The house is in a great location for Rhosneigr and is plenty big enough for our party of 10."

    The kitchen/dining area with snug was where we spent pretty much all of our evenings and is a great set up for dining with friends of an evening. A great communal area. The property looks like it's recently been renovated and having all rooms (except the bunk) as ensuite is brilliant. It was a very comfortable stay and with the beach at the back of the house, the location was just great. The house was perfect for the dog, as it was tiled throughout making it ideal. Th garden was gravelled and fully enclosed also, which makes life easy, although I would say it could be done up a little. Apart from it being handy for the dog, you wouldn't really spend any time out here - but perhaps you don't need to when in Rhosneigr as like I said, the location was absolutely stunning for beach walks, popping into the town or heading to watch the Valley planes taking off. There have been plenty of reviews regarding cleanliness, so I'd like to make a point of saying we didn't experience this at all. The house had been cleaned and that's not a comment I would leave. Perhaps they've made some changes since then - I have no issues with the cleanliness. There are a few problems with the property with the shower door in the attic being broken and there being a clear leak from one of the bathrooms onto the kitchen, which we found impossible to report to Sykes when we arrived, as getting hold of anyone or finding a contact number just impossible. This was only a concern from a point of view of ensuring it was clear these things were done before our arrival. There are also no instructions upon arrival which are always handy regarding where to put the bins, recycling, laundry, wifi code, the local area etc... There are also no 'niceties' that you usually find in property like some bin bags, dishwasher tablets, a bit of tinfoil or oil for cooking... welsh cakes on arrival. Although, it didn't impact the trip. Just be mindful to take everything with you that you would need or you'll be purchasing at the shop. On the whole I would book again for a big group

  • "We arrived at this cottage and immediately had to report to Sykes how filthy it was, the area behind the kitchen bin was disgusting, there were wine stains on the floor, there was dust and filth everywhere."

    A cleaning team duly arrived and did what they could. The cottage itself was shabby, the kitchen island had (a lot of ) peeling formica - a food preparation area? One of the dogs found sweets under a sofa ( not ours). Thus dust was found behind the bed in the main bedroom. The cottage was very shabby. Plaster was peeling off in a couple of the bedrooms, below windows and at shower points. There were several places showing water damage from shower areas. The place was so cluttered with nik naks, but given that the place was not thoroughly cleaned in the first place it did not surprise us that theses were just more dust collectors. We paid a lot of money for this place, was it worth it - no!!

    Thank you for your review and I am sorry you were disappointed with Rhiwlas. As a fully managed property is inspected on a regular basis and we do not agree the that the house was filthy; we are confident that the housekeepers look after the house well. It has been a very busy season with back to back bookings with only a short window between guest leaving and new guests arriving. As the low season approaches with some gaps between bookings work will be undertaken to remedy the wear and tear of the season. Property Owner

    WiFi was problematic. TV was difficult to manage, needs to be simplified No Guest information pack available but that might be online with Covid restrictions Would be helpful to have bins in bedrooms

  • "Lovely property, ideal for our family getaway plus corgi!"

    I would echo other comments about disposal of rubbish - we also tried to put the box of bottles etc that was already there when we arrived onto the pavement when we saw the neighbours doing it, but it wasn’t collected. We found the recycling point by the library and got rid of our cans and glass there. The house itself is great for an extended family with plenty of room to break out if you want to, though we spent most of our home time in the kitchen diner. We would definitely go back - location is super, parking easy and there’s plenty to do - loved rock pooling and the toddler in our party loved the jets and helicopters flying over.

  • "The beds weren't made up the way I had asked which meant that I had to do it when I got there."

    The bins hadn't been emptied, I had sent an email about this and was told that they would be emptied. They weren't which meant that we had to put rubbish bags in the front garden and that looked horrible. In the house there is only 1 bin in the kitchen, there aren't even bathroom bins, that's ridiculous and quite inconvenient. The house is lovely and is a great location though, so it's a shame that little things weren't right.

  • "As always anywhere in Rhosneigr an excellent location and we had a fabulous week despite the pandemic restrictions."

    Property accommodated us well. The bunk bedroom is really quite small as is the room with the pull out bed, the remainder are a good size. Some lack storage space, especially the attic room which could do with a wardrobe and definitely a chest of drawers. A few more bins around the property would help. The kitchen gives the impression that the property has only just turned from a holiday home to a holiday let. There is an assortment of random kitchen equipment, from previous decades, with many items that wouldn't be used and some essential items missing (e.g. 10 decent sized bowls and more than the bare minimum of mugs) - a trip to Ikea to get 10+ of everything + appropriate new utensils wouldn't go amiss. The back yard is somewhat soulless and could do with making into a space that people would want to use. The trip wasn't helped by the oven / cooker being broken, Menai holidays clearly tried very hard to get this sorted while we were there but only managed on the last day. Impressed with their input into ensuring our day was not disrupted. I hope that these comments can rectify a few minor things for future visitors. Thank you for a lovely week.

  • "Rhiwlas is lovely and spacious and well equipped inside."

    We were very comfortable and confident in the cleanliness of the house. Outside at the back of the property it is very basic. A large yard, covered with slate chippings,a dustbin and a table. We didn't know how we were meant to get the dustbin out of the garden for emptying.There were no instructions about bin days, so in the end we left all the recyclables on the pavement outside, when others did. I saw the bin lorry go by, but they didn't take our rubbish. I felt bad leaving all that for the cleaners to sort out. One or two other minor things, but I left a note about those. A good holiday over all.

    Thank you for your feedback. I am pleased to advise that the information regarding the refuse collection has been updated. We were not aware that the oven was out of order during your stay, but also has now been replaced. Property Owner
