  • "A great apartment in a fantastic location with easy access to all parts of Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsular, whilst the local walks around the estuary are very beautiful."

    There are with huge views across the bay - and watching an glorious winter sunrise reflecting into the room is well worth getting up for! The apartment was high quality and had everything needed including some great old books to read. Many thanks for the stay.

  • "Bay View Apartment was everything we needed for our family break."

    Perfect in every way. We especially appreciated the excellent communication with the owner, the beautiful views to help us relax, and not forgetting the delicious cakes! We were very pleased to find that the cafe below the apartment was open and operating in October, and we made good use of this, too!

    Thank you Mary. So glad you enjoyed your October break. Borth y Gest is lovely any time of the year with the ever changing tides and surroundings. So glad you enjoyed the welcome cakes from our Bistro. Look forward to your return. Seasons greetings to you all. Fiona and the team. Property Owner

    The owner was very helpful and we were blessed with wonderful weather. As a few other reviewers mentioned it could do with a new sofa and little a little revamp in the lounge area, otherwise great.

  • "One of the best holiday properties we have ever stayed in."

    Clean, comfortable, very well equipped, and the location looking out over Borth-y-Gest harbour is just fabulous! Sitting in a rocking chair looking out at the wonderful view and seeing the tide come slowly in - idyllic. Lots of walks nearby, the shops of Porthmadog just over the hill and all the joys of Snowdonia within easy driving distance. And an outstandingly good café just downstairs. Wow. One tiny niggle: in these days of total recycling and waste management the property really does need a full size food waste bin.The little counter-top one isn’t enough for a whole week’s potato peel and banana skins!

    Hi Fennie, thanks for your kind comments, particularly about our Bistro! Will look into the food waste bin situation, thanks for pointing out, good point. Would love to welcome you back again. Property Owner

  • "Great apartment in a fab location with amazing views."

    The best feature of the apartment is definitely the views over the tidal estuary - whatever the weather or time of day the view was stunning. Away from the windows the apartment is well equipped and comfortable with ample space for our family of four plus dog. The friendly owner lives nearby and we were made to feel very welcome. Lots to do straight from the front door with beautiful beaches, walks and the downstairs cafe/take-away. More stunning beaches are a short drive away and the mountains and walks of Snowdonia are easily accessible by car. We had a brilliant two weeks and would recommend the apartment and the area.

    It was great to have you to stay, so pleased you had a good fortnight. Please come again! Property Owner
