  • "Excellent stay at Highgate."

    Place was quite unique in design and was nicely situated to walk to most areas. The house itself was well equipped and the hot tub is always an added bonus. We had a challenge operating the tv initially but the owners were quick to come round and see if the issue remained. They were very friendly and offered us tips on the recycling (which is very particular in north wales). From highgate there are some nice walks that were actually documented in the welcome pack.

    Property was as listed: comfy beds, spacious living areas etc, only drawback was the limited number of showers (only one plus a hand shower over the bath with no shower curtain)

  • "Below is an email I sent to Highgate property landlord."

    1. When we arrived at your property there was no welcome package, with this I mean; a small bottle of milk, few biscuits, bottle of cordial etc just to allow us to have a cup of tea and a little break before navigating ourselves to local shops. I think it's important thay clients have this considering most people would have driven long distance to get to your property. 2. You kindly asked us to water your plants which in my book is not our responsibility considering we were on holiday but we went ahead and made sure your plants were watered daily. 3. You advertised your property as having a barbacue grill which we didn't find and you only provides us with one after we asked for it.To add on to this the grill was still in its box and your expectation was that we assemble it for you even though it was part of the package we had already paid for. Again we obliged and did the best we could assembling it. We could have made a fuss about this because it took us a lot of time from our holiday to try and build stand but we didn't because we are aware that such things happen. 4. To be very honest with you, your property was tidy but not as clean as you made it up to be, it was dusty especially in the kids bedrooms behind radiators etc but again we got on with it because we didn't want to ruin our holiday. 5. We couldn't find any bags to put the laundry and an instruction from sykes website stated we could leave dirty laundry in a pile in the bathrooms which we tried to do . Your cleaners only had to strip 2 single beds, remove a few food items from the fridge, clean a dressing table and collect a bag of recyclable bottles which was outside already and you decided to charge £100 from single mothers who were simply trying to give their children a bit of a nice holiday. Sorry for rumbling on but I thought I'll let you know how I felt. I also understand that you are only doing your job so I understand if you decide not to do anything about this email. Thanks

    It proved to be an excellent base for a family holiday.

  • "Enjoyed our stay at the Highgate, lovely house that just needs a bit of modernising through the bedrooms."

    The stairs to the top floor has a large gap to the side that could do with being covered or a bannister to prevent any accidents happening. Although baby gates are provided they weren't the easiest to work. The views and location are fantastic and would highly recommend. Philip was very friendly and helpful at advising us of some places to visit and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. The pictures don't do the house justice as I think there has been some rooms that have been modernised. The hot tub was nice but would benefit some solar lights. Overall we had a fantastic stay

  • "It is literally home from home!"

    Such a well equipped holiday home with great comfort. A lovely extra of a local food hamper welcomed us too. It was love to meet the owner Philip, who was extremely knowledgeable of the area and explained everything well about the house. Highly recommend a stay at this property.

  • "Highgate is a house we would visit again in view of the fact that measures were underway to repair damaged furnishings and improve the facilities."

    We were disappointed that a couple of things were not there that had been advertised, but we expect those to be remedied for future guests. There is a wealth of generous giving in all that is provided at Highgate and we felt very well looked after on arrival. The house is spacious and full of character, whilst being ideally situated for families and individuals alike. We wish those who own or are responsible for the provision of Highgate, all the very best in their 'work in progress' at Craig y Don.

  • "When we arrived at the house the kitchen facilities where filthy."

    We spent a number of hours having to clean things when we where all tired due to our long journey. There was bacon fat in the fridge and all appliances where really dirty. We didn't use the hot tub as we where concerned about the cleanliness due to the state of the kitchen. We where compensated 100 pounds but feel we should have received more due to the impact this had on our stay. We paid a lot of money to stay at Highgate for the week and we shouldn't have had to deal with what we had to deal with. The property is nice but the cleanliness needs to be looked at.

  • "Highgate needs updating, it wasn't up to our standards for cleanliness the inside of the microwave was rusty, the cooker extractor was greasy and Dusty there was dust and cobwebs everywhere, cracked single glazed Windows very creaky floors, towards the end of the week there was a horrible smell coming from the hot tub, apart from that it's a lovely house for a four generation family plenty of room and comfortable, we enjoyed our stay there and would go again if it was improved it wouldn't take much time and money to bring it up to standard."

  • "The house is lovely."

    All of the beds were great and the kitchen/loving areas were lovely. I would limit your party to 8 though, as the sofa bed was pretty hard. It was a lovely touch to have some fresh bread and a few essentials provided for our arrival. Phillip was really lovely, and gave great recommendations on what to do in the area. The only thing we would change would be to put in an extra shower - 1 with 9 people was a bit of a squeeze (there is a bath, but we didn't really use it) Also, make sure to chat to Phillip about the housekeeping deposit, so you don't get caught out on its return. We were unaware that it was to be returned via bank transfer, which was frustrating.

  • "As a group we found the kitchen excellent."

    It led into the garden and hot tub which worked really well for us. The downstairs shower room is well situated for use after the hot tub also. Communication with company was excellent throughout Thanks for a great time.

  • "It was unfortunate we could not access the balcony with a sea view due to broken lock."

    We felt the caretaker could have done a bit more to get it sorted. The weather was ideal for sitting out there. A fuse tripped out during the stay and it took a while to find the fuse box. We felt we paid a lot for what we got over 2 nights - we were however accomodated at short notice!

    We stayed here in order to visit Snowdon and it's a great location not too far from town and the facilities at the house are fantastic! Nothing quite like a hot tub after a long trek in the mountains. Would recommend!

About the location

LLANDUDNO

Conwy 4 miles, Colwyn Bay 6 miles, Snowdonia 20 miles.

Llandudno lies between two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme and it is these headlands, and the town's two waterfronts, that give this tourist resort its special appeal. The town offers two superb beaches - the North Shore, with its wide promenade backed by an imposing crescent of Victorian hotels and the quieter West Shore with miles of sandy shoreline backed by sand dunes and superb views towards Anglesey. For the best views, however, you can reach the summit of the 679ft Great Orme using either the Great Orme Tramway or by taking an exciting cable car ride of over a mile. The town has an excellent selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as Venue Cymru, which is North Wales' premier theatrical stage for opera, ballet, musicals, comedy and visiting orchestras, boasting a programme that is second to none - all this is just a stone's throw from the promenade. Just 4 miles away is the town of Conwy - a designated World Heritage Site. A true medieval gem, Conwy is dominated by a splendid castle and completely enclosed by its well-preserved town walls. Discover miles of sandy beaches along the North Wales coast and excellent walking and climbing in the Snowdonia National Park just 20 minutes' drive away - there's plenty to see and do!
