  • "Excellent apartment, wonderful detail to decor."

    Just loved it, view fantastic. The only thing I would like to mention is need to put in read up on site, no t towel or dishcloth and no handsome supplied.

    Hi Jane Many thanks for your feedback. I am sorry about the missing tea towel and dishcloth. I do usually supply these but must have forgotten on the changeover. There is also usually hand soap in the bathroom, but perhaps the previous guests finished what was there. I'm afraid I didn't notice it was missing. I will replace this. I hope to see you again soon Regards Rhonwen Property Owner

    Fantastic apartment very clean and had everything you needed for a self catering holiday the location has everything from shops pubs and restaurants all on the doorstep the only thing that I think was missing was a fire escape at the back of the apartment

    Dear Barry, Apologies for the delay in replying to your message. We appreciate your positive review and hope to see you again. With regard to your concern about the absence of a rear fire escape, we can assure you that we are fully compliant with all statutory requirements. The stairwell is a protected corridor, we have invested considerably in fire abatement measures (through sprinkler and detection systems) and a rear fire escape is not required. Kind regards John & Rhonwen Allport Property Owner

  • "For longer visits (we stayed just short of a week) we could have done with some more bath towels, definitely more than one roll of toilet paper, more than one bin bag for the kitchen and having some paper towels provided."

    We had to replace the batteries in the TV remote. Although the pillows are obviously good quality, they were very lumpy and so some additional variety of non woollen would have been appreciated. Road by bedroom is very bright and noisy, a good pair of blackout curtains would go a long way to fixing this. Shower ran out of hot water on one occasion (used for no more than 20 minutes) and internet did drop. We got ticketed parking in the diagonal bays of what we thought was the long stay car park, this is very confusing to a non local especially arriving after dark. Some extra information as to which bays are long stay and can be parked in on the 'getting your keys' section would help. All that said these are very easily fixable niggles and our overall stay was enjoyable. The flat is very well situated for visiting the area and to a high standard of furnishing. The welcome cakes and milk were a nice touch and flat was spotlessly clean.

  • "Excellent, well situated, facilities brilliant in the flat."

    Nice welcome pack, coffee, tea, sugar and welsh cakes. Very clean and the view from flat is very nice, with the castle illuminated at night. Very enjoyable holiday.

  • "This is a lovely flat perfect for two people, in fact the photos don't do it justice, it was immaculate on our arrival, felt brand new, nicely furnished and well equipped."

    Very comfy bed and super bed linen. Our only gripe, minor issue, would be the flimsy toilet which didn't seem to be secured very well.

    Dear Barbara Apologies for the delay in responding to your very positive feedback, which we very much appreciate. With regard to the toilet seat which you mention, we confirm that this has now been addressed. Kind regards John and Rhonwen Allport Property Owner

  • "An absolutely amazing, spotlessly clean apartment."

    It is situated in an ideal spot, central to all amenities and the ideal base to explore this beautiful location. Everything has been well thought out to make this the perfect stay and there was nothing more we could have asked for. The information pack was very detailed with everything you might need and the parking arrangements spot on. A special mention has to be made about the the bed which was so comfortable and the wool quilt and pillows were superb. We will definitely be returning and will be recommending to friends and family.

  • "Stunning property."

    Well appointed and equipped. Incredibly comfortable wool pillows and duvet (great investment) Beautiful view of the castle from the French balcony. Fantastic location with shops,restaurants and pubs within short walking distance. The blue tooth in the bathroom is amazing. The shower is very slippy so had to wear flip flops. But apart from that, this is a superb property and we are recommending to friends and family and will book again.

  • "Absolutely perfect flat and location for Snowdonia,the flat had every home comfort you could wish for, parking was not a problem plus you could use the parking permit in other car parks which are listed in the very informative book in the flat, spotlessly clean throughout, if we ever holiday in this area again we would definitely stay here again."

  • "A beautiful and spotless holiday apartment with everything we needed for a weeks break."

    The layout of the apartment is very well thought out to make the most of the space and finished with great taste. The photos do not do it justice, the bathroom and shower is very spacious and had a built in Wi-Fi connection. We’ll never forget that spectacular view of the castle from the French balcony. Criccieth itself is a very charming seaside town with lots of character and great connections.

    Hi Derek Many thanks for your fantastic feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you again in the future. All the best Rhonwen Property Owner
