    Had a fantastic stay here only issue for us my elderly mum came with us ground floor bedroom there were a couple of steps but we managed however no grab rail in bathroom so she couldn’t get herself off the toilet I am aware the house doesn’t advertise as disabled friendly but just a heads up it didn’t take away from the fantastic time we had here

    . apart from the weather which was out of there hands it was absolutely perfect… kitchen great and really well equipped …wanted for nothing. Dining table took all 17 of us easily.Games room … superb…and the cosy front living room with a view is unforgettable. All the bedrooms and bathrooms and so nicely done. The house is big enough to get lost and have quiet moments away from noisier members of the family when/if required :-). The garden is lovely, child and pet friendly. And the owners are very quick,helpful & accommodating answering all my questions before arrival…. Would certainly recommend and would love to revisit.

  • "Stunning cottage in a beautiful location."

    The pictures really don’t do it justice. It’s so tastefully furnished and even had little touches around Halloween as we were there at the end of Oct. Great for walks and going to the beaches and so much to do in the cottage with a games room and an open plan kitchen diner for games nights. We had a wonderful time there

    Everyone loved the games room !!!! The kitchen had plenty of equipment for a large group of people. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean. We had no complaints of how comfortable the bed's were

  • "This house is absolutely great for a large gathering, the set up allows for a central point for everyone to eat and spend time together in the open plan kitchen and dining area, with plenty of space to retreat to if you need time to yourself."

    Ample off road parking. Bedrooms all comfortable and plenty of bathrooms. The front rooms enjoy a lovely view of the sea. The trampoline, climbing frame and games room were a hit with the kids while the adults enjoyed hot tub time and a glass of wine around the fire pit of an evening. Lots of fun day trips within 30 min drive eg Conwy, Prestatyn, Talacre beach. The owner is friendly and communicative. Fab time had by all, thank you!

  • "Arosfa Lodge proved to be an excellent choice for accommodating our large family group comprising ages from 2 to 70."

    The games room and outdoor play facilities were, in particular, a huge hit. Future guests should perhaps be mindful that the two bedrooms in "the attic" have restricted headroom with sloping ceilings and a steep staircase - not really suitable for the very tall, very young or those with limited mobility, especially since their nearest bathroom is on the floor below.

  • "Lovely place to stay."

    As per previous review, there isn’t a gym. There is a great playroom and an outside play area. The bin needed batteries - we didn’t get round to it. You offered only one high chair so we brought another. Selling yourself short - there were two available. We bought a mattress for the cot - not very comfortable otherwise. Why not include a picture of the seaside view - it is lovely. I understand the need for all the warning signs with subsequent charges but it does lower the tone somewhat. Yes it is a lot of money but it is an amazing place to bring all the family together. Thank you.

    What a beautiful house in a beautiful setting, the owners were friendly and did there best to get things right, we had the most amazing time thank you As a suggestion the main bedroom down stair mattress could do with a update, the bifold doors couldn't open i know you tried to get this fixed on our visit but they were unable to, also BBQ there wasn't any gas and it definitely hadn't been cleaned prior to our visit but we managed with the very well stocked kitchen and appliances:)

    Loved how we basically had our own ‘wings’ of the house, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms on one side, and 4 bedroom, 3 bathrooms the other side. The house was huge but so warm and comfortable. We were lucky enough to have snow for a few days which made it even more magical. Thank you for a lovely stay. Would highly recommend

  • "What a cracking place for a large family holiday!"

    There were ten of us - six adults, three children, one baby and two dogs and there were plenty of rooms to choose from which meant we easily found a layout that worked for all of us*. The location is great and at the end of the day we used the hot tub and/or games room to unwind. We had a problem with the coffee maker - there was a part missing and no sooner than we had reported it a whole new machine was delivered. Faultless service. *It's worth noting that access to two of the rooms, one twin and 1 double in the roof is via a narrow landing which may not be suitable for everyone.

    It was decorated beautifully, games room was a real hit with us all and so was the hot tub. Brilliant location to go off in the day and explore the local area! The local pub serves gorgeous food!! A few things not working in the property, such as the coffee machine, and a gym was advertised but not actually there. Other than a few minor things, the stay was absolutely amazing!!

    The photos really don't do it justice! We stayed there as a family of 12 aged between 4 and 69 with plenty of room to celebrate a 70th birthday, which was fantastic. The bedrooms are beautifully situated with luxury decor/furnishings (boutique hotel standard!) and all are a fabulous sizes, with stunning views. The 2 bedrooms in the annex have lower ceilings and the stairs aren't great for anyone who has mobility problems, but there are plenty of other bedroom options to suit everyone! Hot tub was a great addition and enjoyed by all as was the games room complete with; pool table, gaming seat, TV, punch bag and table tennis table. The snug was delightful and we thoroughly enjoyed the log burner for the colder nights. A perfect location - 8mins drive to the beach and 2mins to the Spar shop, which was stocked incredibly well.
