  • “Well, where do I start.”

    .The hosts were amazing and couldn’t have been more accommodating! They were very welcoming, with a lovely card and cake. Everything was fresh and clean, and there were even many comments about the beautiful flowers on the dining room table! Little touches really do make a difference! ...

    .The hosts were amazing and couldn’t have been more accommodating! They were very welcoming, with a lovely card and cake. Everything was fresh and clean, and there were even many comments about the beautiful flowers on the dining room table! Little touches really do make a difference! There is so much I could say about our experience so I will bullet point to save the waffle: * Naomi spent time sending us a list of recommended places to go before we arrived - this was useful * great spacious rooms * great shower on 1st floor * great kitchen appliances, enough cutlery and crockery - even the knives were sharp!! * dining room table fitted 12 adults and 7 children! * great outdoor space - bikes were used a lot!! So much more to say.. a real gem! Local to a lovely town and great place for a local walk - which was suitable for all ages and abilities! We had a great week, thanks to all at Dolau - Naomi, John, Olive and the amazing team who are there on the Saturday to turn everything around for the next lot of residents! Just some feedback to Sykes: I rated accuracy of listings the highest, however Sykes cottage do need to update their website as they reference more rooms than there is - this led us and the host confused. We had to request the 2 single beds in one room to be zipped up to make a double (as we thought we had enough doubles with a spare room to be singles), however we were a double bed short. Although, the hosts were straight on it and back around rejigging the furniture! They could not have been more accommodating! Oh and I nearly forgot to mention.. one of the little ones left a beloved toy behind, Naomi was straight on it and sent it back to the rightful owner. Certainly made a little one happy! Thank you!!
