  • "Generally the flat was OK but it would have been useful to know that the front door opened into a bedroom and that the kitchen was quite small."

    The main issue was the lighting - one lamp wasn't working and it proved difficult to read in the lounge due to the light being poor - this would be easily fixed by installing brighter lights as had been installed in one of the bedrooms.

  • "Great location, lovely views, well equipped kitchen."

    The double bedroom was lovely facing the harbour. The second “bedroom” was in fact a single bed placed in a space to the right of the front door with a curtain for privacy. The contrast between the two bedrooms was huge and I think this should be made clear eg a few photos of the immediate environment

  • "A lovely well maintained apartment."

    Lovely modern fittings. In the heart of Porthmadog. No washing machine which would of been useful. Although towels and bedding were provided there was no spares. 1 bath towel for a week isn't enough. Thankfully I had took some from home.

  • "This cute little apartment is in a perfect location for exploring North Wales."

    It has a stunning view over the harbour of Porthmadog. It is a great base rather than someone you would hang out in all day and four would be a squeeze. However, it has everything you need and is charming.

  • "Cnicht View was well located, comfortable, clean and well-equipped, with a comprehensive information pack."

    Be aware that it would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems, as there are 42 steps from the road to the property and a very narrow, steep internal staircase.

  • "Perfect location, perfect stay."

    On the website it said we couldn’t check in till 5pm but the owners kindly let us check in at 11 allowing us to to empty our car and get on with a lovely day. I couldn’t fault the apartment, it has everything you need. For a nice meal it is a drive away, go to the Golden Fleece in tremadog just a short drive. The woodland wonderer train ride is a must. We wanted to do snowdonia but was booked out for over a week so worth pre booking, same if you want a boat ride. Portmerion is a lovely place to visit although the staff are not very attentive and I would advice having breakfast before you go as the day we went there were 3 cafes all of which don’t serve breakfast or food till 11 but opens at 9:30.

  • "We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in this lovely flat overlooking the harbour with a beautiful view of the Snowdon range."

    Porthmadog is a lovely town with a great choice of pubs , coffee shops and restaurants all a few minutes walk away. The 38 steps leading to the property are challenging but not too severe, however the stairs inside are very steep and may not be suitable for everyone.

  • "We had a good holiday."

    However we feel two areas need attention. 1 Listing details. Steep and narrow internal stairs. These are not mentioned on details. We felt these stairs would be impossible for access by paramedics needing to remove a patient from the lower floor, also we wonder whether they had comply with fire evacuation rules. Bedroom 2. This is actually the entrance lobby and is not separately enclosed. 2 Sykes administration. Communications were decidedly biased towards the company and the property owners’ interests, especially in the difficult weeks following the March Covid lockdown. These did resolve eventually, but not until we had formed an unfavourable view of Sykes as a company. Also we received repeated booking confirmation and other details both from Sykes and from Booking.com. This was confusing and the two lines of communication contained contradictions, even on basics such as the revised booking dates. We hope your find this information useful. Best wishes Paul and Deborah Sibly

    Very comfy and spacious, with views that will stay in the memory for a lifetime. Perfect to use as a base to explore the surrounding areas. Plenty to see and do. Good communication with the owners prior to collecting the keys. The flat has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Would recommend in a heartbeat, and will certainly be returning in the future.

  • "The apartment was very comfortable with beautiful views, whatever the weather."

    I t was very well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay there. Porthmadog is a lovely town with easy access to lots of amenities whatever the weather, and we don't drive. We enjoyed the Welsh Highland Railway trip to Caernafon, the river through the Snowdonia National Park was in full flood and hugely spectacular! Fabulous castles and walks on your doorstep, coastal and Country. The local pubs eateries are good, particularly the tapas bar Y Banc. Loved it! Portmeirion is beyond belief even if you have never watched The Prisoner. X

    Beautiful and comfortable little home in a picturesque and friendly village, next to the water and the hills. The starting point of the lovely Festiniog railways, which we did not do...as it appeared to be the Christmas celebrations for the local families. All happy times. We travelled to Anglesey and Blaunea Festiniog which was wonderful. Even the weather did not spoil the brilliant break away from London.

    Beautiful views. One can just sit by the window and watch the world go by... Very good wifi. Great linen. Comfy beds. All you need in the kitchen to cook. Railway just few minutes away. Plenty of takeaways and restaurants. Great Fish and Chips on the High Street. Really good Chineese Happy Chop. The Port great for breakfast. Marine museum is a hidden gem and tells all about Porthmadog. Flat ideal for couples. Also short walk from Borth-y-Gest. Eva and Barry and Vera

  • "This well equipped apartment had a wonderful position on the harbour."

    It was very quiet yet so convenient for amenities. We particularly liked seeing the steam trains coming and going on the Cob. Only downside are the 38 steps to the apartment and the internal staircase is steep. However, these were not a problem as we are both fit (and felt even fitter at the end of the week). There was plenty of parking.
