  • "We found the communal entrance to the building and stairs to be a little 'tired' looking."

    The front garden and steps to the main building could do with a general tidy up to look more appealing. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and Tara, the owner's sister, was very helpful when we had a problem with the Internet. Some of the furniture could do with updating, however, the bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable, and the views to the sea were wonderful. The shower doors were a little unstable at times, and the table lamps were not working, but there were standard lamps to compensate for this. You need to be quite fit to climb all of the stairs. A very good location for all of the amenities. Nice to have a simple cooker to use. We have often had difficulties in other places we have stayed where the kitchen appliances have been too modern and complicated to use. Tara lives just a couple of doors down and was always available by phone if there were any issues.

  • "Dark messy hallways to apartment."

    Very dirty inside with rubbish left on the side. Hoover was left in the middle of the room. Notes complaining about leaking freezer compartment on kitchen side. Very disappointed and left. Complained to Skye cottages and were told previous customers also complained. Also recent reviews very bad and one said they cleaned the place on arrival as it was very dirty. We were then told by someone else that as we didn't take any photos were weren't getting a refund and they couldn't take our word. We won't be using Skye cottages again

  • "We loved the apartment which was light, airy and comfortable, kitchen was well equipped."

    Commanded lovely views of the beach and estuary. Counted 52 steps up to the top floor, so not for those who can't do stairs! However, it could do with a thorough deep clean, had there been cleaning supplies, I would have done it myself as it bugged me the whole week. Windows especially were filthy inside and out, shame as this spoilt the view! Bathroom, shower full of black mould, nothing an old toothbrush, bleach and elbow grease wouldn't fix. Behind door full of dust, tiled shelf ditto. Skirting boards, ditto, especially below heater in front bedroom, visible from dining area. Fridge on its last legs, icebox so iced up, impossible to get anything in and dripping water all over food in fridge (health hazard). No black bags for rubbish provided, ditto washing up liquid, antibax Flash? etc. Vacuuming lax as bits and dust everywhere, seems new carpet has been laid but not cleaned up very well. We would return as we liked the apartment but please, give it the clean it deserves.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are apologise for the cleaning issues and will take this up with our cleaners to ensure the property is properly maintained. The fridge is new - less than a year old, so apologies again if it did not meet your needs. It has been defrosted now and we will monitor to ensure it works as expected and does not have an issue that requires repair/replacement. We very much look forward to welcoming you back and hope that we live up to your expectations next time. Property Owner

    The beds were comfy... That's the only good thing I can say. we also left early due to the amount of dust everywhere. Fruit flies around living room and kitchen. We normally stay here every year but won't be coming back next year. Thick dust on stairs an boards. Hair an dust behind doors. Stains on floor where it hasn't been mopped. Orange grime on shower. Fridge stinks an freezer was full of ice but at same time defrosting over our actual food in fridge. I did send pictures in a separate email.

    What more could you want?The apartment was split level which we love with the spacious rooms from that era.It was a mix of furnishings,pictures etc but it worked and was charming.We had everything we needed and were able to park outside with no problem.Not a negative for us as we don’t have mobility issues but for those that do the stairs may be a problem as the apartment is on the top floor.We just loved everything about our holiday.Thankyou

  • "We stayed at the property for a seaside break, with our two children (11 and 13)."

    The property is central and a few min walk from the train station, supermarket and less then a min walk from the beach. A car is useful to visit surrounding Wales but is no way needed to get to the property or get the most out of Barmouth itself. On arrival everything was clean and as described in the advertisement and was matching the photos provided. The rooms were if anything more spacious than we had imagined. I personally enjoyed the amount of art in every room. There is some steep steps inside the building to get to the apartment, as mentioned. But it really is worth the effort for the view of Barmouth beach. Our stay was quiet and relaxing. We used the cooking facilities and everything you could think of was provided. It's really difficult to think of any constructive criticism to provide, perhaps the vacuum could do with a replacement as the nozzle easily comes loose. We had a fantastic time and hope to come back again. We would happily recommend this property to our friends and family. Thank you for providing the base for our lovely holiday ❤️.

  • "Very poor and run down comunal areas."

    Stairs were difficult if you have any mobility issues. Needs new carpets and redecorating.Appartment was clean and tidy but wall paper needs replacing woodchip wall paper not good very old fashioned. All in all the views were amazing and we had a very comfortable stay. I do believe as you walk through the main door into the building is dirty and unwelcoming. ?

    Thank you for the feedback. We are so glad you had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the amazing views from our top floor apartment. We are sorry the main hallway and stairs are currently in a worn state. The area is being recarpeted in mid October with redecoration following shortly afterwards. (This had been planned sooner) We are glad it didn't affect your stay in the apartment itself Hopefully you come back to Barmouth and enjoy the property again next year Regards. Dominick and Brett.
