  • "A lovely, well appointed cottage."

    Very homely, cosy and warm. Very close to town, handy for shops, post office etc.. Not a good venue for those of mobility issues but it states that on the website.

  • "We were generally pretty happy with the cottage."

    I think it could do with some updates here and there such as the bedding/pillows/mattresses could all do with replacing. The front dbl bed wasn't very comfy. The middle room needs to be a proper double bed also. We weren't given any info on where to park before the visit which would have been helpful. I also think its not clear in the listing that there is no on street parking directly outside. But generally it was a pretty cottage and a great location, we had a lovely stay.

  • "BEWARE. Absolutely filthy!"

    We tried to contact Sykes twice during our stay. The only response we had back on both occasions was that they would be in contact with us during their office hours of 9am - 6pm. They didn't! We have photographic evidence of all of the issues which include; On arrival dirty crockery and plates, dirty, brown water in the mop bucket, the ice box in the fridge (there is no freezer) hasn't been defrosted for a long time and was full of compacted ice so we couldn't get anything in there, fur/dust balls in lots of nooks and crannies, filthy rug in the kitchen, stains on the stair and landing carpets, lots of chips on the paintwork on woodwork and walls, dirty marks/scratches on the paintwork at the bottom of the stairs, mold and mildew on the bathroom ceiling and in grouting in tiles around the bath, front garden full of weeds. I could go on! There is also an issue with neighbours waste directly outside of the front gate (I appreciate this is out of the owners control) where recycling waste hasn't been collected and subsequently smells terrible and is surrounded by wasps. It wasnt an enjoyable experience trying to relax in the front garden. We have stayed in many holiday cottages over the past 25 years and this was by far the dirtiest. I am not over fussy or a clean freak but the cleanliness and hygiene of this place was totally unacceptable. This place needs a lot of work doing to provide PAYING holidaymakers an acceptable standard of holiday accommodation. It absolutely DOES NOT warrant a 4 star rating in it's current condition.

  • "We had a wonderful fortnight in Y Bwthyn Pinc ."

    By far the most comfortable and beautiful house that we have rented from Sykes , and we’ve stayed in many over the years . The location is perfect the house is beautifully furnished and equipped. What a privilege to have part of the castle wall in your home , not to mention fabulous views and sunsets ( and everything else ) just two steps away. Bobby the terrier loved his morning walk through the woods to run about on the estuary sand every morning and evening . Of course different and incredible light every day. We know Conwy and the area very well , so knew the experiences and location we could expect, and really enjoyed not having to drive anywhere on most days ; simply stepping out of the door to wander off exploring , all day hiking or catching the train or bus in any direction . Or sitting outside by the wall , people watching . In fact , the first holiday home we’ve wanted to spend time in for its own sake , rather than to use simply as a base for sleeping in . We cooked loads and found everything we needed in the kitchen which is unusual in my experience . Also really appreciated the board games (enjoyed sitting at the table outside with scrabble and wine). Recommend the Erskine Arms but make sure you book . The kebab shop is a gem and of course fish and chips , excellent bakers in town and superb scotch eggs but can’t remember the name of the deli that makes them. Only a short walk to Aldi - the local Spa is v expensive . Our car was fine parked over by the high school only a short walk away, and it is no bother to unload etc in the road (although perhaps this could be tricky for people with small children or mobility issues. ) Only tips I would give - The listing says two bathrooms , which is not the case - upstairs bathroom is lovely but the tiny downstairs loo is far too small to wash in. Also, the washing machine is in the old outside loo in the yard . Neither were problems for us, but could be for others and should be clear in the listing. We would have done a more thorough clean up before leaving had there been more equipment , but assumed the lack of - broom , mop, cloths , chemicals etc - meant this wasn’t expected . Meant to write in the visitors book but forgot. Personally , I’d move into this house tomorrow given half a chance , and certainly would want to have all the downstairs furniture just as it is! Fabulous . 10/10 Thank you very much , we really hope to be back .

    The location is super with the castle, shops, park, quay, cafes etc just a couple of minutes walk away. We loved that the house is attached to the old town walls. We had no problem getting free parking on Agnes Rd which is only a couple of minutes walk away. The house itself is gorgeous, clean and cozy. It is very well equipped with everything you could need and has lots of personal touches. We would certainly stay again.

  • "On arrival to the property is a walk way that is overgrown , full of rubbish and bins so not a great first impression."

    Going through the gate could be stunning as the property is adjoined to the castle wall . However the garden was unkept and full of old toys etc . There were lots of flies due to the amount of bins and overgrown greenery . The actual property was pleasant although only top cleaned . The mats , sofas and cushions were dirty . The upstairs bathroom sink had pubic hairs in . There were lots of cob webs everywhere. We only stayed one night and not the two we had paid for and we spent as little time in there as possible. This property could be beautiful if it was properly cleaned and maintained. We won’t book via Sykes again as this happened before they really need to inspect properties before advertising as it gives a false impression. They also won’t give a refund they say it’s down to property owners.

  • "A lovely, cosy cottage in the heart of Conwy and we would definitely stay here again."

    It's a very well appointed home from home in a great location with easy access to great, shops, restaurants and pubs - The Erskine Arms is a particular favourite! There is no parking at the cottage but we parked at the County Offices which is free Mon-Fri and a very pleasant 5 minute walk through a park. We did have an issue with the boiler and no hot water or heating for the first day, despite re-setting it as per the instructions in the cottage folder but the property management company were very good and sent a plumber out. He was very thorough and cleaned everything out, stayed to check it was all working and we had no problems at all after that. We were slightly disappointed that there was no kindling or a starter pack of logs on arrival, as was mentioned in the cottage folder, but we were able to pick some up at a local shop so all in all not a huge problem, just a disappointment. Overall, we thought the cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a nice stay in one of our favourite locations.

  • "Gorgeous cottage, quirky details, excellent location."

    Really fabulous stay, we're looking to rebook for next year. You can tell they've responded to previous feedback. The only things that weren't 100% is that I agree with someone else's comment about the TV - it's too small for the room. I'm also not sure how you would fit six sitting comfortably but definitely OK to sleep six. Lastly, please please fix the kitchen tap, water waste aside, the noise drove me crazy!! That's the only reason maintenance wasn't 100%, we didn't take our dog in the end but definitely looked great for dogs too.

  • "This cottage is beautiful!"

    Fantastic position within the town walls of Conwy. Very comfortable and perfectly decorated. Only issues were: They advertise this as having parking. It doesn’t. You have to park elsewhere which costs up to £6/day, which adds up if there for a week or so. They advertise 2 bath. They have 1 bathroom and 1 downstairs toilet . But this downstairs toilet only flushed the first time, then wouldn’t for rest of weekend. 1 bathroom for a 6 people isn’t ideal. The flush on the upstairs toilet wasn’t great either.

  • "The cottage itself was cosy and comfortable and surprisingly roomy, we did enjoy our stay but what did let it down a bit was how you access the property which was via what I would call a front 'alley way' which was strewn with discarded recycling boxes, wheeley bins and general rubbish from the other cottages on the row."

    What prospective renters should also be aware of is that there is no parking anywhere in close vicinity to the cottage. If arriving by car you have to park up on double yellow lines with your hazard lights on to unpack on arrival and again on leaving, the rest of the time we parked around the corner in paying parking bays. The location of the cottage in the town was brilliant for our needs with a handful of pubs and eateries to try out literally on your doorstep. Despite the comments above regarding the rubbish and parking, we would book again.

    It was a great base to start exploring North Wales. Not detracting from our stay, but things to note perhaps for ongoing maintenance: Taps in the main bathroom were a bit dodgy. Needed to be turned on full to stop water dribbling all over the floor. Pendant light was hanging lose from the ceiling. As a coffee lovers, the addition of a cafetier would.make a big difference. The expresso maker becomes a bit fiddly each and every time you want a cuppa.

About the location

CONWY

  • 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.
