  • "When we arrived at the property it was not ready or cleaned."

    The cleaner arrived at the same time. There was no toilet paper no cleaning products, no fairy liquid or handwash, no soaps and no shampoos. No basic food at all all kitchen cupboards were empty. No salt pepper, sugar nothing at all. We had to do a big shop for the 3 days we stayed there. Not welcoming at all. I certainly will NOT be coming back again.

    With regret I feel the need to answer you very negative remark. i do appreciate the horror you witnessed on your arrival of the horrendous storm, it was 1987 the area had such rain so we were not prepared for it. this is why the cottage was not ready due to flooding on the road and the cleaners struggled to go from A to B. this was on our BBC news. On arrival you wanted to use the toilet, and asked if you would*nt mind using the public toilet which is just around the corner which you refused. Despite the water nearly in the cottage we let you in and to our horror you stayed in the Livingroom letting the cleaners clean around you. Our last telephone conversation I was informed by yourself that your child had broken the fish tank and water was everywhere, but I assured you that no charge would be given to yourselves , because of the inconvenience of your arrival. which you forgot to mention. Our cottage is self catering , I was not aware that i had to do your shopping, we always leave coffee/tea/sugar/ welshcakes/milk for our guests , never have we had such a remake as this before. As landlords we appreciate all the feed backs and try to learn from them , but unfortunately because of act of god im unable to do anything apart from praying it wont happen again, but as for your teenagers that is pure untidiness .

  • "Lovely house & enjoyed week's break with family."

    Would just like to point out that in the main description of the property on the website it states the ensuite has king-size bed, did not appear to be so. Please correct description. (Please do not publish name)

  • "Gathering of the clan for a family wedding and then holiday as we had travelled ..."

    Gathering of the clan for a family wedding and then holiday as we had travelled miles to get to N Wales; superbly decorated property; loads of room; super clean; use Sykes a lot and this is the best property we have ever been in; similar group gathered 3 years ago in Cornwall for a wedding with holiday but this was a far better place and at a better rate (I know there are regional differences in what is charged); within walking distance of the beach which was used each day as weather was so good; will talk about our week together for years to come; would have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone

  • "Lovely clean and comfortable property - very convenient location."

    The biggest issue is the windows blinds in the master bedroom, they really don't stop the light coming in and curtains should really be added. Also the mattress could be a lot more supportive. Also a check out time of 09:00 is unreasonable !

  • "I think that the property was not set up for 8 people."

    There were 8 chairs, but they didn’t fit around the table. No room could accommodate us all to sit down in. The pans were just far too small to be cooking for 8 people and the fact that there were no blinds on the windows meant that anyone with kids would have very early mornings!! A BBQ would have been nice too! But it was close to sea and very clean.

  • "Positives - Lovely modern house, very clean, lots of space, great location."

    Very comfortable overall. Loved the brightness and space, large bathrooms a plus too. Suggestions to improve - Desperately needed curtains on the bedroom windows for a better sleep. Also, the en suite bedroom did not have a king size bed as advertised (which was one of the main reasons we booked). Kitchen equipment very sparse - tiny 6 inch frying pan so had to buy a large one, no steamer so hard to cook veg and would definitely have been a problem with a larger party, only one chopping board so had to buy some. Also, no basics like hand soap in bathrooms, kitchen sponges, toilet roll, bin bags, wash up liquid provided which is a first for a Sykes property of this level. Would also have benefited from an Information Folder on the appliances, recycling information etc Overall, it was a lovely holiday. The house is lovely but I think to pay top prices in high season the above improvements would be justified. As a comparison, we just stayed in Mountain View Conwy which has all the above and more at a comparable price.

  • "Excellent holiday home."

    Would thoroughly recommend. We were a party of 6 adults and it gave us perfect space. Very clean. Great to have space for parking 3 cars, dishwasher/washer dryer, and Netflix. Great location for touring. Perfect for beach. Only down sides - 9am departure could easily be a more acceptable 10am, and the lack of curtains meant you were woken at sunrise. Still a 5* property and highly recommended.

  • "We had a fabulous holiday in Criccieth."

    Monarfon is a lovely, clean house and located perfectly. Beds, bathrooms, living areas were excellent, so comfortable! The kitchen was really spacious and it was lovely to have the washer and dryer and a dishwasher. We did find, however, that there could have been more kitchen items - eg there was No chopping board, only just enough Plates and no bowls for putting food out in. I ended up going to buy some cheap bowls. There were no hand towels either. Otherwise, all good! And we would definitely return!
