  • "Stunning property with the wow factor, love all the period features."

    It was very comfortable with everything you need and to a high standard, but also spotlessly clean. The essential items left in the property were a nice touch and much appreciated. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Only downside was the bath plug did not work and caution had to be given getting in and out of the bath. Lighting was also very dark in the bathroom. Might be worth asking people when they stay to air the bathroom after use as it can become quite wet with condensation. The smell of the air fresheners used were over powering. The reed defuser was empty and would have looked and smelt so much nicer.

  • "A great little one bedroom right at one end of high street."

    Clean, well maintained and comfortable. Has everything you need. I visited in Nov so many restaurants were closed and it is a bit tough heating up the rooms in those cold stone walls. But that was the fault of my timing, not the property.

  • "Dinlle is a really quiet, comfortable and well equipped apartment."

    For a weeks stay, more bedroom storage would have been useful, e.g. a set of drawers. We are mobile but had to be careful getting in/ out of the bath. A grab handle would be helpful and the rubber nonslip mat needs replacing as it wouldn’t stick. We had an excellent week, the weather was perfect and Dinlle was the ideal location for exploring the whole area around Criccieth.

  • "A lovely clean property equipped with all we needed for a relaxing time, the sofa and chair were comfortable as was the bed."

    Two downsides however. The blinds on the skylights are fiddly to close and the bedroom blind in particular doesn't quit close all the way. This lets in an annoying slither of light early in the morning. The other issue is the shower mat supplied. It's lethal, we didn't use it because it doesn't stick to the bottom of the bath and is extremely slippery.

  • "The property was extremely clean and provided everything it said it would."

    The milk and cake along with teabags and sugar were a thoughtful gesture when one had been traveling. A note was left regarding the bedding. Sadly no grab bar in the bath so not safe for people with poor mobility to get in the bath to take a shower.

  • "Property was clean, tidy and bright."

    It was comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed (could have done with some wine/ pint glasses) and just across the road from the beach. We ate at Dylans and had takeout from the Chinese both of which were delicious, couldn't try the chippy tho as it was still closed when we were there, maybe next time tho.

  • "Lovely apartment, quality fittings, except the electric shower has a very weak flow so not a great shower experience."

    Need a large size cafetière! Need a better sign and directions for the actual driveway to property. It would help to have a small reflector on driveway entrance. In directions would help to give name of overall property (Ty Criccieth).

    Left a day early to avoid the very early leaving time of 9.00 a.m. understand the property needs cleaning but getting up so early on last day of holiday was unacceptable to us.

  • "The apartment was exceptionally tidy and clean."

    Loved the quirkiness of the apartment as it had previously been a church. It had everything that was needed for a 4 night stay. WIFI was excellent. The location was excellent. Easy to reach many attractions in the area. Criccieth even had its own railway station which we didn't use as the places we visited needed a car to get to and a castle with amazing views.It was a nice touch having milk and a cake on arrival the cake was delicious. Wish I new where it was from. The only niggle was that we could only pull the skylight blind down half way as it was stiff. It does say they like us to wake up to natural light, but we like a dark bedroom and not to be woken up at 4.30 in the morning as it's getting light. Especially when you are on holiday. Will certainly go back to Criccieth in the near future and next time visit the castle and use the train.

    Cleanliness was excellent, facilities were more than we needed and the location was even better than we expected. Some really nice personal touches, and it was a very unique experience - I never thought I'd be negotiating a church column in my bedroom! Will definitely be booking again.

    First, I had not realized that it was an apartment with no external access Next, it was too small - the bedroom could not accommodate a king bed, the bathroom was minuscule, there was no table The duvet was insufferably hot Incredibly, there was no microwave

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with the facilities and amenities during your recent stay. However, the items you mentioned are all noted in the property description or visible in the photographs, and we are confident that the apartment is as advertised on the website. I'm sure you will appreciate that things, like the size of the bathroom, or the access cannot be altered, and are again, quite apparent in the images on Dinlle's web page. Property Owner

The property

A wonderful ground-floor apartment in a converted church resting in the North Wales town of Criccieth, Dinlle is the perfect property to enjoy a romantic break with your loved one, and is within a short stroll of all the delights of Criccieth, including two beaches and a castle.

Once you arrive at your delightful apartment and step inside this unique and characterful dwelling, you are immediately wowed by the incredible church features in the open-plan living space.

With pretty arched windows and stone arch supports in the high ceiling, this room is filled with rustic charm perfectly mixed with contemporary style, providing a perfect spot to relax on the plush seating in the sitting area with a Smart TV to entertain.

A lovely fitted kitchen has all you need to rustle up some delicious meals to be enjoyed at the dining bar, when you're not out sampling the excellent restaurants of Criccieth.

Step into the grandiose bedroom after a fun-filled day where a double bed awaits you and with a large pillar towards the end of the room where you can find some hanging space for your things.

Completing the layout is the bathroom where a small bath with a shower overhead offers a lovely space to freshen up ahead of another day.

You won't have to go far to find a host of things to do in Criccieth, starting with the beautiful beaches, both home to shingle and sand, and backed by a promenade which you can walk along.

Discover the local history of Criccieth by heading to Criccieth Castle, resting proudly atop the headland, and where you can enjoy wondrous views of the town, sea and Cardigan Bay coastline.

For a special occasion with your other half, head to the popular Art Deco seaside restaurant, Dylan's, where fresh seafood is something of a specialty on their menu.

There are also many more options in the town to suit all tastes.

Visit the sailing capital of North Wales, the town of Pwllheli, home to an amazing marina and host to several sailing regattas throughout the year, along with an excellent golf course too.

It is well worth a visit.

The Snowdonia National Park is nearby too, so why not organise a trip up Snowdon to experience some spectacular scenery, as well as, a visit to the fantastic visitor centre at the summit.

The town of Porthmadog also has plenty to see and do, with the charming Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways taking you on a vintage steam train along miles of narrow gauge tracks through some stunning countryside, as well as, the Maritime Museum, Black Rock Llamas and Porthmadog Harbour.

Enjoy a wonderful trip to Wales with your other half staying at Dinlle.

The works are at the front of the building so shouldn't effect the apartment itself other than potential noise during the day, and there's going to be disruption in the car park and workers around.
