  • "Very clean, well equipped property."

    Very steep staircase, could be difficult for those with mobility problems. Lovely views from upstairs of the marina and convenient location for shops and beach but constant heavy traffic past the house was off-putting. Owners were very helpful with problem early on in my stay.

  • "This is a beautiful property with an exceptional supply of kitchen equipment."

    The cottage is immaculate and very easy to keep clean. Both bedrooms are of a good size with lots of hanging space and drawers. The only downside for my husband and me were the stairs up to the bedrooms and bathroom. They were extremely steep! This wouldn't be a problem for the majority but for elderly, very young and the unfit, I would not recommend it! The bathroom would benefit from a toilet brush but I can fully understand why one hasn't been provided! The cottage is very close to the town, the Marina and beaches. We loved our stay at Awel y Mor and much appreciated the welcome gifts of wine, Welsh cakes and milk. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

  • "A fantastic property with everything available."

    The kitchen was super and I even managed to make Christmas dinner!!! Adequate supply of towels and even Prosecco,tea,milk and a Christmas box was left on arrival. All instructions were left and everything was made clear in the disposal of rubbish and what amenities were available locally. The only downside was that the sockets were too low to the floor upstairs making it dificult to use a hairdryer or charge the phone but we managed. All in all a fantastic property.

    A treasure trove of landscape and cultural experiences. If you haven't been to North Wales you are missing out. It is a magic location. Plan your visit, there's plenty to see and do.

  • "House bathroom door needs attention, low ceiling into kitchen needs warning sign."

    Stairs are in awkward position within property. Shame there is a lack of garden, outside space at front hampered by busy road. Fair amount of noise from road restricts having windows open.

  • "I don’t normally write reviews of places we have a stayed but I felt compelled to write for this property."

    We had booked this before Covid was known about and it was unfortunately postponed until this year, but it was worth the wait. Any concerns we had about cleanliness were quickly dismissed. We always clean surfaces down and wash cutlery and crockery that we need to use during the week when we have stayed in other properties, but didn’t feel the need to do it here. The whole house was spotlessly clean, every surface was dust free and nothing seems to have been missed in the deep clean. I was concerned about the parking situation as ‘on street parking’ tends to mean there’s only a few places for a dozen households, or it’s a 10-minute walk from the property. No issues here, we were able to park directly opposite the house all week. There are plenty of places to visit nearby, Criccieth Castle, Portmeirion, Porthmadog, Beaumaris Castle, but we would recommend going to Aber Falls Whisky (and gin!) distillery. All in all a perfect week away, and the welcoming biscuits and bubbly went down a treat!!

  • "The accommodation itself met our expectations in that it was clean and had most of the things we expected."

    There were just some things that we felt could be improved for future visitors. For example, there were no cleaning products so although I had anti bacterial wipes I couldn't clean the oven or the toilet. Also there was no vacuum cleaner so we could not vacuum the carpets. The towel rail was rusty in parts. Lastly, there was a note when we arrived about the TV not working. We had to use a chrome cast which meant downloading apps on our ipad. Whilst this was adequate we did feel that it caused a problem as you could not just browse the television channels. The owners came to look whilst we were there but we felt they could have also tried a different sky box to help identify the pro3. Whilst we managed it was not ideal in the evenings and if we had not been able to use the chrome cast we would only have had 1 TV channel. On the whole we enjoyed the accommodation and felt it was an adequate standard but I felt there were some tweaks which could just enhance visitors stay. That said we were grateful for the prosecco, milk and puzzles.

    Thank you for your feedback. We apologise for the inconvenience you experienced with the Sky television during your stay, unfortunately the fault was with the Sky Satellite Dish and not the Sky box itself, we had ordered a new dish which has now arrived and been fitted. Regards. Property Owner

    The owners were great - incredibly helpful & available when we had questions or needed advice; nothing was too much trouble & they made sure we felt welcome & settled for our holiday. The welcome gifts were thoughtful & very much appreciated! Would definitely recommend this cottage to others.

    The cottage was homely, comfortable, clean and well equipped. It has good views towards Pwllheli marina and makes an excellent base for anyone who wants to explore pwllheli and the Llyn Peninsula. If you need to contact the owner of the property she is hospitable, friendly and very helpful. We throughly enjoyed our staycation.

  • "It was very well cleaned, you could smell a hint of bleach on arrival - which was reassuring."

    Knowing the cleaner had been extra safe with Covid level cleaning was great and meant we could relax. The prosecco was also very welcome and meant i didn't have to go out shopping on arrival. Thankyou. A nice prosecco too! One thing that would be good to mention on the welcome info is about the heating - we stayed at home one day but the timer didn't come on til 6.30pm so we were quite cold. Didn't want to mess with any timer settings but luckily I did figure out to switch it to 'on'. This also works in reverse – it got very warm at times. The low doorway did catch us out a couple of times but not sure how you resolve that one! The outside space at the front was nice to sit out. All in all, a very nice, warm, secure cottage to stay in in a good location and base for exploring the Lleyn Peninsula.

  • "This is the second time that we have been to Awel y Mor and our holiday came up to expectations, as did Awel y Mor!"

    It was spotless and the owners had taken all reasonable measures to counter Covid19. We marked down 'comfort' (only a little) as the traffic noise was a little intrusive in the early morning. However, with the windows closed we both got good nights' sleeps. We do really love staying there, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is superb, the weather was glorious, parking is easy, it is a super walk by the harbour into town and we loved walking down to the beach and harbour. We are sure that we will make Awel y Mor an annual holiday. Even considering a short winter's break if possible. Thank you for the welcome biscuits and beverages, a lovely touch. Best Regards Stan and Jenny Good

    A garden at the back would have been good too. Other than that we had a brilliant week and loved the place! Location is great, the house is designed beautifully and we will hopefully return next year. Thanks.

  • "The house was spotless with excellent facilities for self catering."

    We had been worried about traffic noise, being on main road with bedrooms at front, but there was no problem for us with the windows closed at night. Although we would not stay in the heat of the summer. We enjoyed the location with walks round harbour and to the beach and marina. Parking on the road opposite was no problem and there is adequate parking just over the level crossing to the right. Pwllhelli town seemed to grow on us and we loved to meander around. It is well located for trips around the Llyn peninsular. We had a superb holiday and would stay again. Thank you.

  • "Brilliant little cottage, great view of the marina too."

    I would say if you are tall (over 5’6) you may find the stairs and kitchen doorway a challenge. But not enough to put you off. If you are travelling with little ones, there is no usable garden at the moment, until summer 2020, so take something to keep them entertained indoors. (No games at the property as listed) We loved the no pet rule, my husband is allergic and we find it more and more difficult to find places where animals have been. Would definitely go again!!!

  • "The house was good, clean and had a GREAT kitchen loved the facilities only reason I didn’t give 10/10 was for two reasons - Low doorways/ceilings downstairs, hit head a few times - although wi-if was at the property it was too slow to use, even for just browsing webpages."

    Despite this the house was close to the town centre, parking was surprisingly ample and I would stay at the property again.
