  • "A great quiet location just of the main street of Bala, the accommodation was perfect for 4 people, would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting this area of Wales."

    Only slight drawback there is no Wi-Fi but we were aware of this beforehand and was not a massive problem.

  • "We had a good holiday."

    The bungalow is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac but is only a 6 or 7 minute walk to the high street and a 12 minute walk to the Lake. The property is spacious, comfortable, clean and warm and on arrival the owner checked to see if everything was alright and whether we needed anything. She couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful.

  • "The owner - Rhian was very accommodating and understanding that we had little children."

    She was very clear what was and wasn't available at the cottage, and was available to answer all our questions before and during our holiday. The cottage is spacious, clean and cozy all at the same time with plenty space in the well kept garden.There was ample room for 3 adults and 3 kids and a baby. It was in a great location too, just a 5 minute walk to the lake and countryside and a short walk to the shops and post office. there are 2 bathrooms! and besides for the spacious lounge there is a conservatory with armchairs so there was loads of space to chill. the beds were comfortable, and the cot and hichair were provided. the kitchen had everything you needed in it. it was a very enjoyable relaxing place to stay!

    Everything we needed was there. It was in a quiet cul de sac in the centre of Bala. Everyone we met were so friendly and helpful. It was lovely to meet the owner and for her to check everything was ok for us North Wales aas beautiful and gave us the opportunity to do things we don't normally do. The canal boat ride over the aquaduct was amazing and the trip up Snowdon was unbelievable. Mum and I really enjoyed every minute of it. Would strongly recommend this bungalow and holiday

  • "There was a lack of cutlery and pans that worked on the hob."

    We’re not sure if pans were suitable for type of hob. Plastic silver spoons were in place of metal ones. Limited plates, bowls etc and certainly not enough for the family of 6. Utensils seemed to be from the 70’s and lack of any modern equipment to use in the kitchen for cooking. Glasses dirty in the cupboard on our arrival. Hairs/debris not cleaned up from the last guests. Not cleaned well enough, particularly the bathroom. Conservatory equipment dated and general feel that this place requires some new furniture/mattresses to bring it up to the 21st century. The springs coming through the single bed room mattresses was pretty bad and my children noted this when usually they wouldn’t notice things like that. The dining table and chairs were wobbly when we sat at it. Location was brilliant. Parking was good too. Plenty of places to dry wet clothing from the lake. It was in a nice, quiet area and we felt really safe there. The lady we dealt with was really lovely over the telephone and was really helpful.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are sorry Tremyfron did not meet your expectations. We always ensure the property is cleaned to the highest standard as this is very important to us as reflected in our reviews. We do feel that there is sufficient crockery and kitchen utilities for at least 6 people. We have replaced 2 pans after your stay as we found that these were all burnt. The mattresses provided are memory foam so there are no springs but we are sorry if you found them not to your liking. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

  • "Bungalow was in nice location and provided what we needed for a short stay."

    However, compared to other holiday let’s we have used in recent years, this one would benefit from some upgrades such as WiFi, welcome pack, provision of towels, hooks on bedroom doors, towel hooks in bathroom, guest comments book. On plus side, owner did contact us during stay to check all was ok and we enjoyed our break very much. Thank you.

  • "We had a lovely stay at tremyfron, and it was lovely to meet the owner who came to check a all was ok."

    The cottage was clean, comfy, and in a great location for local amenities which are only 5 mins walk away. Bala Spice Indian is wonderful. We had a lovely meal from there. During our stay we visited Rhug Estate farm shop, the food in there is lovely, there is a nice play area for the kids, and the shop is full of lovely produce. We also went on the little narrow gauge stream train. It was a great experience. The boys really loved it. Regarding the cottage there are a few things missing such as a guest handbook telling you about the cottage and appliances. There are notes in the kitchen but these are looking tatty and could get misplaced. Handy to have them in one binder altogether. I know we were only the for a weekend but spare bin liners would have been useful as we had 2 small children with us and bins fill up fast with them! And one last minor thing a cheese grater would be good. Bala is a lovely place and somewhere I have visited many times as a child. Thank you for letting your cottage to us. We really enjoyed our stayb and recommend the cottage.

    It was overall a nice and pleasant place to reside in over a period of a week. The property was clean. A very comfortable night's sleep. Cooker was excellent. The instructions left by the owner regarding machinery ought to be updated/ better presented. The conservatory was very nice indeed. The outdoor lights weren't working, which made it difficult to come in at night. I would appreciate wi-fi. I would definitely recommend and consider renting once again.
