  • "Loved the property, great location to visit other areas of interest, large & inviting house that has been tastefully decorated."

    What you see in the pictures is what you get. Unfortunately the bathroom and en-suite was not clean on arrival, hair in the shower, soap marks on the shower glass etc but this was quickly resolved after one phone call. TV sound was an issue, when increasing the volume the noise would travel through the rest of the house. Put subtitles which resolved things after all it is an open plan sitting room. Don’t worry if you hear things go bump in the night, I’m sure he/she is friendly

    Glad you enjoyed your stay - we strive to make guests comfortable and sort out any issues as quickly as possible Property Owner

    It's a lovely place to stay and we are planning to return next year. One small point (which hasn't affected our review at all)- the 2nd floor shower plug blocked quickly meaning we had to shower in short 5 second spurts. But thanks for the lovely property!

  • "We booked the property for a family holiday and it was perfect!"

    It has tonnes of space and the facilities were ideal for our group. Super clean and all of the basics provided (cleaning products, bin bags, toilet roll etc). The location was great for accessing local areas like Pwhelli and Porthmadog and explore the south side of Snowdonia National Park. Would highly recommend and will definitely come again!

    Thank you - it is such a beautiful area and so much to do. Glad you had a good time and we’d love to have you back Property Owner

  • "We were a party of four generations, ranging from mum in her nineties to her great granddaughter at 15 months old plus dog."

    It’s not easy finding accommodation that can meet everyone’s needs but Capel Bryan Bachau was brilliant. It was spacious, comfortable, clean, well equipped and decorated beautifully. The Pool table and football table were a great hit. I would certainly recommend.

  • "Absolutly loved our stay, the Chapel has been converted to an excellent standard."

    It could do with some full length curtain to reduce the echo, you can hear every tiny footstep from others when trying to sleep and the TV sound system needs looking at, the base was so loud, yet you struggled to hear the talking if you tried to turn it down. We would definitely go back, 3 generations of our family stayed and we all loved it.

  • "We had a great week in the cottage."

    It was great having the games and the kitchen equipment was fantastic for cooking. The sofas and chairs were all really comfortable. We felt that the bedrooms could have had better storage and it wasn’t particularly clean. The location was perfect for exploring the local area and it was really peaceful there.

  • "Excellent open-plan living in an astounding converted Chapel."

    It had a charm and comfort that everyone experienced; the pool table a focus point anytime of the day. Magnificent windows and beautiful wooden flooring adding to a very special stay here for my sons 21st Birthday. Plenty of space, well equipped kitchen and a glorious wood burner which had everyday use. A good location, we enjoyed Criccieth immensely, as well as visits to Velocity 2 and Portmadog. Good local walks for our dog Ted as well. Very quiet at night, a memorable stay!

    So glad you enjoyed your stay - the area around the Chapel is beautiful and very dog friendly- Neil & Denise Property Owner

    We had an amazing time. From entering the building, the whole experience was perfect. The thoughtful attention to detail from the kitchen utensils required while cooking to the dvd’s and games ( not forgetting the pool table) means you are covered for every eventuality during your stay. It’s location is perfect for exploring the North Wales coast. We were sad to leave, and would return in an instant. Would highly recommend.

  • "Lovely chapel conversion is a great location Llyn peninsula, perfectly positioned between porthmadog and abersoch made it easy to visit lots of places."

    We wanted to get a day pas for Havan however they wouldnt let us despite it saying we could in the cottage. There were a few cobwebs and spiders etc and someone had left clothes and underwear in wardrobe so must not have been cleaned and checked properly. Sky TV was a great addition but could of done with a few board games for the wet weather days. There was a picnic bench in a small gated area to side of chapel but that was about it. It was perfect for us but if the weather was nice in evening id be a little disappointed. Parasol, BBQ some nice outside lights would make small space a really nice feature. I was disappointed with Sykes for not getting back to me regards loyalty discount we should of received, a call and an email and nothing. Not so sure i will continue my loyalty with them after many years.

    It has been beautifully restored and the whole family enjoyed every minuet of our stay there . It was lovely to receive a lovely bottle of fizz from the owners on arrival just added a little something extra . Would highly recommend this place to all . After posting some pictures on social media had lots of people enquiring about how and where to book Chapel Bryn . There are some stunning walks in this area and the chapel is based in an area of stunning natural beauty . If you drive there are lots of fabulous historical places to visit in this this area all only a 15 to 20 min drive away . Chapel Bryn was a fantastic place for myself and my family to see the New Year in . Will definitely be booking again in the future .

  • "Great venue, had lovely holiday there."

    All we could wish for and more. Directions to find place a bit difficult, if it said take turning as if into the Haven holiday site and then immediately left it would have been clearer, but we found it. Note to other visitors, the property looks like it is on a main road, but that isn’t so, tiny road, no traffic. Haven very close, but no noise or evidence that it is there really, so don’t be concerned about either issue. Great facility, beautifully presented, we had three generations on our family holiday, everyone thrilled with property, very happy.
