  • "We have been staying in this cottage for a number of years, we have stayed twice since the cottage has had new owners, the first time the standards weren’t up to what we were use too, but we gave it the benefit of doubt and we have just stayed again, the place was dirty, bed sheets were stained and I’m not 100% sure they had actually been washed !"

    !! The microwave looked like it had never been cleaned, light switches etc were dirty. It’s such a shame as we absolutely loved staying in this cottage. There was NO cleaning products left in the cottage so I had to go out and buy some so we could clean the place. When we first arrived we were early so had to wait to get in and during this time we saw 4 different people go in and out of the cottage plus there would have been the people who had vacated the cottage that morning, not good during covid times …. And yes not surprisingly my partner managed to get covid during our stay !!

    Hi Mrs Stapleton. Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are sorry to hear that the cleanliness of Oriel cottage was not up to your standards and we will be investigating this. We take cleanliness very seriously and would never put our guests at any risk. I can assure you that the bed sheets are professionally cleaned after each stay. I spoke with you partner a few days before your arrival, as I explained to him then we had arranged for a gas service engineer. The four people who you would have seen would have been our cleaning team and two engineers fully masked in order to complete the necessary work before your stay. I do hope your partner is feeling much better now and we would be delighted to welcome you back to Oriel Cottage again. Nick and Jo Property Owner

  • "The location is great, out of the door & on the main Street, cottage had all you needed, but there is a but!"

    Under the kitchen units there's a strong smell of damp, & as previous holiday occupants have said, parking is tricky, & unusual not have a blind of some sort at the bathroom window!

  • "Could not recommend the cottage for four adults."

    The second bedroom was very small and the bed was across the room wall to wall. It would mean climbing over each other to get in and out of bed. I think it would be fine for a couple and a single person, or a couple and two young children. The location is great and the cottage is nicely furnished and well equipped. Parking was O.K. for us out of season but locals told us it is a nightmare in the summer. In fact we were blocked in by trade dustbins and had to move them to get the car out, very heavy.

    Comfy, warm cottage, great facilities and dog friendly. Only downside is the parking but otherwise fabulous

  • "Beautiful Cottage in the heart of Conwy , everything you need for a lovely stay !"

    We enjoyed the log fire in the evenings and the cute little back area outside when the sun was shining ! Not the first time we have stayed and won’t be the last , even better than the photos on website. When we arrived there were fresh flowers on the table and a little treat to eat in the kitchen . Very pleased with everything, Mark , Debbie and Nicky x

  • "The cottage and the location are fantastic, right in the centre of the historic and picturesque town of Conwy."

    2 things are worth mentioning, following our stay that we weren't previously aware of, before staying. Firstly, parking. The street outside the cottage is a parking area but is very narrow and only allows for two or three vehicles. There is competition for the spaces and if you are lucky enough to get a space, manoeuvring is tricky as you are negotiating a steep hill. Secondly, there is a pub closeby with frontage on High Street just round the corner from the Cottage. The garden serving the pub is just over the wall at the back of the cottage. If you are sitting out in the yard at the back of the cottage, it can get quite noisy with loud voices. This can go on late into the night until the pub closes. As you can imagine the voices and the language can be quite raucous. Other than these, minor, issues, the accommodation catered for the 3 adults in our party very comfortably.

    Very comfortable, well equipped, Nicely furnished and decorated plus two bedrooms gives everyone space. Lovely that Jo left us welsh cakes and milk. Outside space great for evening drink. Conwy so chilled, loved it so much will be back next year.

  • "Such a lovely cottage with excellent facilities."

    Everything we needed and more too. Nice little yard area with morning sunshine, although our little old dog struggled a bit on the pebbles. Comfy king size bed and fabulous shower. Constant hot water. Great location for walking to the Quay, park and marine walks. Excellent butchers on the corner and a great selection of eateries and pubs/bars. Conwy is beautiful and having been before our 2nd visit was not a disappointment. Another great cottage booked through Sykes.

    Took minutes to warm up when heating put on. Comfy beds too. Very close to all you need in the town. I would really recommend Watsons Bistro to eat out. Their food is so gorgeously yummy. We eat there at every visit Conwy.

  • "A lovely cottage in a great location, right in the centre of Conwy."

    The cottage had everything we needed and was a really nice place to spend a week. Only thing to note is that I thought from the description that there was accessible access round the back, which isn't true...the steps were slightly less steep but it was a narrow, slightly overgrown alleyway and we couldn't get the gate open over the gravel. We have a baby so just had to carry the pram in and out the steps at the front- it was fine with 2 of us but just not what I was expecting! The location is amazing, just off the high street, which has a Spar, lots of lovely pubs and cafes as well as some takeaways. Conwy is tiny but has lots to do for its size and is well connected to other places (we came on the train and found the trains and buses in the area excellent).

About the location


Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage, yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions, there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 and 1287, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and a great bow-shaped hall was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs, including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October, along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
