  • "Clean, comfortable and tidy with everything that's needed."

    We had a very enjoyable stay.

  • "An excellent property, we really enjoyed our stay."

    The only issue we had was with the shower. The shower tray is not sufficient to catch all the splashing and it left the floor puddled. Obviously it was easy enough to wipe up but a longer shower tray would be more beneficial. We would love to stay at the Nook again in the future.

    Thank you for visiting us at The Nook, I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. When I'm next there I will have a shower and see if we can do anything about the splash issue, thank you for bringing it to our attention. We do hope to see you again. Very Best wishes.

  • "This was one of the loveliest holiday properties that we have stayed in."

    In a great spot with the sea at your door. Didn’t need to take anything with us. The property had everything you could think of. Loads of plugs great hairdryer. Loved the Ninja air fryer. Sat drinking wine on the little Terrace overlooking the sea what more could you want.Took our 2 Jack Russells who also loved it. Highly recommended. A tasteful renovation to a high standard. Super king bed. I could go on and on. Book the Nook you won’t be disappointed

    Thank you for your kind comments, I loved furnishing The Nook because its small and cosy. I'm happy you found everything to your liking and hopefully we will see you again. Best wishes. Chrissie Property Owner

  • "Fabulous apartment, beautifully presented and very comfortable and warm."

    Our dog loved the jar of gravy bones and the bedroom basket. The view of the sea was fantastic. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

    Good to hear you enjoyed your visit and your furry friend was happy with the treats! Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes Chrissie Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Nook."

    It was very clean, comfortable and generally well equipped. It was delightfully close to the seafront providing some lovely views. Great having the on-site parking too. The kitchen had an amazing, modern oven - we were very grateful for the comprehensive instruction manual. We shied away from trying the Ninja air fryer though. A few small points: A kitchen roll would have been useful. The entrance door took us a few seconds to figure out how to engage the lock - you need to fully lift the handle before turning the key or the knob on the inside. The bin use instructions are on the inside of the lids so found them after opening the bins. Helpful as everywhere seems to have different recycling guidelines. The duvet and some of the cushions have feather fillings - very soft and comfortable but we brought our own duvet as I react badly to feathers. Overall, a terrific place for two people to stay and we would certainly consider staying there again.

    We do hope you will visit us again soon, I will include some basic recipes for the air fryer before your next visit, (warning, you'll return home and want to get one)! I try not to leave too many "notices" about so you feel more "at home" so will include recycle instructions in the info pack along with the fryer info. Thank you for for your visit, we look forward to seeing you again. Chrissie Property Owner

  • "This property was exactly as it was advertised - small, cosy and convenient."

    Immaculately clean and could not fault it. It was at the back of another property and was quite tucked away. It was not a big appartment by far but had all the basic necessities and facilities. It has been newly refurbished and it served our purpose perfectly. Owner was most accommodating when contacted for instructions on water heating issues. Would definitely use again for a short stay. Thank you.

    Thank you for coming and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, we are monitoring this year very closely and will make one or two "tweaks" for next year to improve the facilities. We look forward to seeing you again. Best Wishes Chrissie Property Owner

  • "The `Nook` in Criccieth was a delightful place to stay."

    Situated near the sea front with sea views from 2 of the 4 rooms, it was a comfy and an ideal size for one or two people to stay. It had everything one would need incluuding TV and broadband. Situated on the ground floor apart from 2 steps into the spartment and there were handles to keep one steady should one need some help. The kitchen and the bathroom with shower were modern and very clean. A super place to stay and I would highly recommend The Nook to all!

    Thank you so much for your feedback, this is out first year with The Nook so we are keen to know how it is working for our guests. Best Wishes. Chrrissie Property Owner

  • "Beautifully clean and light apartment."

    Thank you for thinking of everything for us and the dog. Delighted with unadvertised sea views. (just kept wishing away the cars parked up against the windows). Stressful decor was easily covered up with thoughtfully provided throw. Lovely bed. Great sea front location. It looked to good to be true on the map but it was!

    Thank you for taking the time to write a review, it's always helpful to hear what our guests have to say and where we can improve. Yes my taste is quite eclectic, a bit of fun and not everyones but at least you were able to customise a little! We are blessed with some beautiful walks and the seafront is perfect for dogs so I'm glad you were happy.. Best wishes Chrissie Property Owner
