  • "The property is in an excellent setting."

    The pictures on the site are in no way misleading, and may not fully do justice to the setting. We had an excellent time using the property as a base for some wonderful walks along the nearby coastal paths out to Borth y Gest, Morfa Bychan and Criccieth. We ventured into the Hills around Croesor and enjoyed the Autumn colours and the breathtaking scenery. The town is very near and yet there was no disturbing noise other than Owls hunting in the early hours and the seabirds. I really cannot recommend this place highly enough. Its our second stay and we will return. Thank you for sharing.

  • "The Moorings definitely lived up to its billing on the website."

    The property is clean and well maintained with comfortable furnishings, and the balcony view did not disappoint. We did not plan to self cater, but the presence of a good quality hob, oven, microwave oven, and dishwasher meant that this would not be a problem. One reviewer mentioned that the stairs up to the front door might prove too steep for some. I have to disagree. They are no steeper than those in the average house, and my wife, who has mobility issues managed them with no difficulty. We would unreservedly recommend this property to anybody wishing to visit this area.

  • "Absolutely fabulous."

    We have stayed in many of Sykes accommodations and they have all been excellent but this one is exceptional. The quality of the appliances left nothing to be desired and the decor was clean and fresh Add to that the view of the estuary and the ever changing scenery with entertaining wild life, it was brilliant. We stayed here for a fortnight and we were just so comfortable we didn’t want to leave.

  • "Had a wonderful holiday, the apartment was clean and very well equipped and in a prime position."

    The views were amazing and sitting on the balcony watching the boats coming into harbour and the abundant bird life was the highlight of our holiday, if you're a bird watcher you're in for a treat !!! The apartment is reached by a wooden staircase to a concrete landing and the front door, the car space is directly below, if you're ok with stairs at home then I wouldn't think you'd have a problem. You then enter into a small hallway with the second bedroom to your left, open plan living area and kitchen to the right. The kitchen was very well equipped with an abundance of glasses and plates etc. and I found the oven and hob very easy to use. I would say that the fridge is on the small side with just a small freezer compartment, but we found it to be perfectly adequate for our needs. Living area was comfy and if the weather was not good enough to eat on the balcony you could sit at the dining table and still have a lovely view. You go upstairs to the main bedroom which again has lovely views to the harbour entrance, the bathroom is also upstairs, the shower was very good and there was always abundant hot water. Porthmadog is a great place to stay and this apartment is on the doorstep of everything we hardly used our car. Would definitely recommend and book again, remember to bring your binoculars !!

  • "Lovely apartment with a beautiful view from the lounge and main bedroom looking out to sea down the estuary, also when sitting on the balcony."

    The rooms were extremely clean and well equipped and the kitchen and decor looked very new. The location was on the quay where the Ffestiniog Railway station is situated and no more than a couple of minutes walk from the nearest shops. Having a private parking space outside was appreciated.

  • "Very beautiful flat, nicely furnished and well equiped."

    Clean and welcoming. Great view of estery and marina. Good location for easy routes through Snowdonia National Park. Would not suit many with restricted mobility due to steep stairs leading to front door.

  • "Good Morning - I'm sorry but the cleanliness and maintenance of the apartment (The Moorings, Porthmadog) was not the usual standard I have come to expect with Syke Cottages."

    The bathroom light wasn't working luckily the mirror had a light. There was a bad smell when you came into the apartment spelt like damp but when we investigated in the spare room there was a wet mop and bucket in the wardrobe which was causing the smell. The Sun Parasol was broken there was a make shift bolt attached with a plaster to the pole. I went to prepare a meal and got pans from the drawer and they were dirty still had food in them. I have photographs of the complaints that I have mentioned above if you require them. It was a real shame as the property is situated in a lovely location on the harbour, but I'm afraid we will not be going back to the property.

  • "The apartment was lovely with a fantastic view and perfect location."

    It was really well equipped and it was clear a lot of thought had gone into making it a holiday home. The biscuits and welsh cakes on arrival were a really nice touch. We would definitely recommend to friends and family and stay again ourselves. Thank you.

About the location


Harlech 5 miles; Caernarfon 19 miles.

The bustling harbour town of Porthmadog lies on the Glaslyn Estuary and enjoys a stunning setting. The gateway to the Eryri (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 Eryri (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 Eryri (Snowdonia) and the The Lleyn Peninsula.
