  • "Enjoyed our stay."

    The apartment was lovely and the view was incredible.

  • "This was our second stay in the property, we were pleased to find the standard of cleaning was excellent this time and the window fastener in the bedroom had also been mended."

    It’s a lovely, comfortable place to stay with beautiful views, peaceful but only a short walk to the town. We have already booked again for next year.

  • "Our first stay in Porthmadog."

    No 25 is a comfortable place to stay, tasteful decoration makes the house feel larger than it looks.The view from the French windows is beautiful with lots of bird life and the Ffestiniog railway to watch, really relaxing. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of good quality crockery, pans and glassware. The property is really convenient for the shops, cafes and the Ffestiniog railway and lovely coastal walks. We enjoyed our stay and would stay in No 25 again. The only negative issue for our stay (and we’re not extra picky) was that the floors hadn’t been hoovered in the bedrooms and lounge and the bathroom and hall floors were very dusty and ‘bitty’. The skirting boards and window cills were very dusty and there was also a collection of cigarette ends just outside the door. We gave it all a quick hoover and clean and it didn’t ruin our stay but just wanted to point this out so that the owner can take it up with the cleaning company.

    Thank you for your comments, and I am happy that you like the property. It is a lovely place to visit. I am sorry that the property was not as clean as it should be. I will take it up with the cleaning company. I have only just picked up your comments today, because I have been looking for comments in the wrong place. (I am a new owner.) I hope you consider 25 South Snowdon Wharf, Porthmadog for a future holiday. Thanks again for your response. Property Owner

  • "This was a save property for us."

    We originally went to a beyond-acceptable property, and in the end, the team member from Sykes came and agreed on the unacceptable nature. She was so gracious to take the time to find us a new place to stay. This property was so nice and clean, with a great location and wonderful views of the estuary. It worked out nicely as we were closer to the town of Porthmadog and the train, so one can easily walk to the local town, restaurants, and shops and even take the steam train up into the mountains.

  • "The property itself was beautiful, very comfortable with a gorgeous view."

    It was quite well equipped but the only dishes we could find were plastic! Unfortunately when we arrived it hadn't been cleaned, the cleaners eventually arrived 1.5hrs later and stayed for less than 15 minutes, leaving the bathroom untouched! I reported this to Sykes on the Monday of our stay and they still haven't had the courtesy of coming back to me. I have booked with Sykes on numerous occasions but will be very reluctant to do so again. Whilst it didn't spoil our holiday it did upset us and wasted a few of our precious hours.

    I am very sorry that the house had not been cleaned before you arrived, and that you were not happy about the cleaning when they arrived . They have never let me down before. I visited the house on Sunday, after the cleaning company had been, and the house was clean and well presented for the next guests. I am sorry it was not the same for you. The porcelain plates etc. are in the low cabinet next to the cooker. Thank you for choosing my house for your holiday. I hope you will consider us again. Property Owner

Allocated parking greets you before making your way into the lovely and bright home; the ground-floor hosts your sleeping quarters, with a double and a twin room to choose from to catch your rest.

Completing the property is the sitting area, with a TV and books for your entertainment, and the perfect view for watching the tide come in and out and spotting some local birds - you even have distant views of the Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Steam Railway from here!

When sitting out with a cup of tea, you may spot Curlew, Teal or Redshank on the banks, or even Ospreys, Cormorants, or Black-tailed Godwits exploring the water’s edge, while anglers’ fish off the wall just outside of the property.

When you’re ready to head out and explore the town, you can find beaches, shops and restaurants to keep you occupied, as well as handy supermarkets to stock up on the essentials.

When you’ve seen the sights and dined at the eateries of Porthmadog, there are a wealth of attractive towns nearby you can visit such as Harlech and Barmouth.

Harlech, known for its magnificent beachside castle and beautiful golden sands makes a lovely day out for a couple or family.

About the location

PORTHMADOG

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, Porthmadog is full of individual shops and restaurants, and home to the Ffestiniog Railway and the Welsh Highland railway where you can travel by steam through spectacular Snowdonia scenery, to Blaenau Ffestiniog or Caerforn . The pretty village of Borth Y Gest, with its cliffs and coves, is a short walk or drive from the town. The well known and unique Italianate village of Portmeirion is just down the coast. Situated on a rugged clifftop on its own private peninsula, Portmeirion, famous as the location of the TV show The Prisoner and the final episode of Cold Feet, is surrounded by miles of sandy beaches and woodlands. The area also boasts castles at Criccieth and Harlech, and superb unspoilt beaches such as Black Rock Sands, where the sands stretch as far as the eye can see. Also within reach is the famous Zip World Slate Caverns and Bounce Below where you can get involved with a variety of activities including the thrilling zip wires and underground caverns to explore; there is something here to suit the whole family. An ideal location for the attractions of Snowdonia and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
