  • "Brilliant holiday home - warm, spacious, clean, comfortable, well equipped and with a great view."

    What more can you ask for and we even had good weather. Property so close to lots of fun activities, beaches and walking - a really good base to explore North Wales. Thank you

  • "The property is amazing with fabulous views over the bay."

    It is very well- equipped and is great for exploring the North Wales area. The only negative we have is the track leading up to the property is very bumpy and rugged and isn’t really suitable for low cars. If this could be made smoother, the property would be perfect! We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will definitely recommend.

    Hi The road up to the property is being improved this week, tarmac being laid tomorrow if the weather improves!! Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Sannans Lodge, so much so that we have already booked to go back next summer."

    The property is so spacious and well equipped with everything we needed. I did have to replace the batteries in the TV remote as it wasn’t working. The driveway approaching the property was a slight challenge as it is so steep and full of potholes, but I accepted the challenge and made it up every time! The view is wonderful and all the positives far out way the niggles. We look forward to returning.

  • "Good location and nice sized cottage with fantastic views."

    Could have been so much more welcoming though. All small things but cumulatively spoiled the arrival experience and the stay. No welcome pack information at all,no guest book wifi information local amenities and attractions etc. No starter pack for the fire, no milk or anything else left to greet you on arrival. One toilet roll per bathroom with no spares. One clock in the house with a dead battery. Light bulb missing in hallway etc. As others have stated the driveway is very steep, however we came via public transport so accessed up the front steps which are super steep and due to the overgrown nature of the garden the steps had brambles growing across them making access more tricky. This listing could be so much better however it just seems to lack a personal touch. Such a pity as the location was great. It wouldn't take much effort to make this cottage much more welcoming and so get your stay off to a happy start rather than a disappointed start.

  • "Sannans Lodge was fantastic."

    Loved all the space and how well equipped it was. The views are amazing and loved how close it was to the pubs along the road. The only issue was the track you have to drive up to the lodge - it is quite rocky and I can imagine some cars could struggle over the rocks and gravely incline. This wouldn't stop me staying here again however as the lodge really is worth it.

  • "Lovely property with lots of space and view."

    However it could do with leaving more toiletries like toilet rolls and washing up liquid as we had to buy our own toilet rolls since there was 8 of us over 4 nights and there was only one toilet roll in each bathroom! Whilst its ok to empty all rubbish before we leave the property I thought it's abit odd we had to strip all beddings ourselves before we vacate the property, surely this should be the role of property owner and not customers?? It kind of ruin our stay experience abit. Most self catering accommodation do not require their clients to do strip off their beddings. It made a rather unpleasant experience to our stay at the end in my opinion otherwise it would have been an excellent top marks stay. Small advice, it might be nice if property owner use plain white beddings rather than patterned ones as it looked old and dated. The ensuite shower room could do with treating the mould around the ceiling and walls as we had to ensure the doors of the shower room closed before we sleep for fear of breathing in mould spores. On the whole the house was pleasant to stay minus the minor issues.

  • "Fantastic lodge in an amazing setting!"

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this gorgeous Lodge. Lovely & modern , all rooms spacious & very comfortable. The views are stunning and we particularly loved sitting up on the hill on the seating area within the property grounds. Very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Excellent location and easy access to places such as Little Llandudno, Angel Bay, Llandudno & Conway Castle. We would highly recommend to anyone to stay at this lodge. There is local shops nearby just done a hill. * Initially its a bit tricky to find but if you look out for a big sign with big white letters "Llandudno Welcomes you Croeso" * don't turn into first sharp left Make sure you drive a little past that first sharp left & you'll see a gravel track you turn left into and drive up the hill and it leads you onto the property car park. We would definitely stay at this beautiful lodge again. Fantastic place. Thankyou.

    Ideally situated for Llandudno and Colwyn Bay. Well equipped with spacious and comfortable rooms. It’s difficult to find. Don’t access the property via instructions given on sat nav. Look for a gravel path around the back that leads to the property. Overall fantastic. Loved it and can’t wait to return

  • "A wonderful place to visit."

    After using Google Earth to double check access, as mentioned in other reviews, the house is easy to get to. The access slightly bumpy and steep but nothing to worry about. The house itself has been well thought out and is warm and welcoming, which was great for the older members of our group. The wood burner was great in the colder evenings, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. The only downside was the lack of cloakroom outside of using the main bathroom. Even though the advertising shows the view from the front of the property, everything looks good in photos right? Wow! It looks as good, with a view from the living room and kitchen who needs tv?? Can’t wait to return

  • "We had a great stay at Sannans Lodge in March 2023."

    It is a modern and very well appointed holiday cottage in a great location for Llandudno and other nearby beaches. It's not too far from the North Wales Expressway meaning that a large area of North Wales is accessible by a relatively short drive.

  • "Property was immaculate, lovely and clean and having no neighbours to worry about was great."

    Would highly recommend and definitely stay again. The only thing I would say (and this isn’t a complaint) is that you could do with a little sign on the gate at the bottom of the hill and more specific directions on how to find it, but apart from that - our stay was excellent ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • "We stayed at Sannans Lodge as a family of 6 adults & 2 children (10yrs) during the October half term."

    The property was in a great location and within walking distance of Llandudno (albeit a little hilly on the way back) with sea views from the front. Who needs a big TV when you can see the sea. A walk over to Angel Bay to see the seals is a must. Like in other reviews we found it difficult to find so a tip for future guests - turn at the big 'welcome to Llandudno' sign at the top of Penrhyn Hill and turn left onto a dirt track just after

    We alternated our family members staying so we all enjoyed some time there. A great base and the lodge itself lacks nothing, except maybe coat hooks, Martin, the owner was very obliging, he contacted me over a couple of things including letting us know we had left some clothing which he's going to send on. The views are breathtaking and we were lucky enough to enjoy lovely weather, all in all a great week.

  • "We knew the property had a driveway but finding it was a challenge, if it was not for workmen who were repairing the floor due to previous guests we would never of found it as no signage had been put at its entrance, the very steep track was a challenge as its a bit rutty until you get to the property which has tarmac parking area."

    First impression was a wow view and a lovely entrance, the whole property has been refurbished to a good standard, the kitchen could do with a few more useful utensils and new baking sheets had to be returned to the owner as they did not fit in the oven in all ways. The main bathroom was impressive clean and fresh. The bedrooms spacious but lacking in some items, mirrors essential for hair and makeup, hangers for wardrobes and bins. The pillows only one per person and very thin, the mattresses on all beds were functional but lumpy. It is a shame a toilet off the utility could not have been included in the refurb as just having the main bathroom for up to six people can be challenging, it was for our party which was for only 3 as the main bedroom has an ensuite but in the mornings is occupied. The main lounge is large and has wonderful views of the valley to the sea. The seats are comfortable and you have space to configure to your preferance. The general maintenance outside is ok but lacking in the gardening area as an abundance of weeds detracts a little, it makes it look untidy from a superb property. The heating system is quick to warm the house when the temperature drops which is excellent when their are seniors in the party. The rubbish needs to be taken down very steep steps (the old entrance route) to a red bin you need to remember the key, alternatively driving on your way out maybe an idea. Overall the property is an excellent base to explore the area which we did daily. Maybe a better welcome book giving guests a few recommendations to visit and eat would be helpful, a shop owner helped us out with options which were excellent.

    Thank you Sally for your feed back, it was very helpful and the issues raised have been addressed Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely property in an ideal location."

    Lots of space, nice and clean, good facilities, great views, and the spacious parking area is a real boon. We found it so easy to get to lots of local places of interest and amenities. A few minutes on Google Maps investigating the location and in particular the exact location of the gate leading to the drive up to the property and parking paid dividends and made it easy to find when we arrived. The drive is a little steep with a bumpy bit, if you have a smaller car, but just take it easy going up and down. We hope to be back here in the not too distant future.

  • "The house is beautiful and has loads of space."

    My children loved running about and exploring. Kitchen and bathroom were lovely. Lots of wood was provided so we could enjoy a lovely fire at night time. I had read reviews about baking trays not fitting in the oven so took some of my own which were needed. The one thing that really must change is the drive. It has HUGE holes which could do a lot of damage to smaller cars. Also a sign really needs to be put up at the bottom of the drive. It took us 20 minutes to find the drive and struggled to get in as there was always cars parked very close to the entrance. A simple sign would have made it far easier. Very pleased we arrived during the day and not in the dark. The house is beautiful and the views are stunning. Nice wee park just down the steps and across the road for kids.

    The balcony with sea views is a real plus, just lovely to sit outside. Car park to the lodge not easy to find - we had to ask the cleaners, this should be made clearer in the directions provided as sat nav takes you to the front of the property. Property lacks personality, its very functional with all the basics you need BUT if you are preparing a nice dinner, there are no nice plates, large bowls for salads, decent glasses etc. For the price there should be more as i stayed at a house in anglesey for less that had a fully stocked kitchen. In addition the lounge would benefit from lamps to make it more cosy. Other houses we have stayed in at the same price (£1000/3 days) had welcome packs - i noted in the guest book that these used to be provided, we felt this would have been a nice touch. All in all we would stay again due to location and size of property but dont expect any frills -this is clearly run as a business.

Location wise the property is spot on, with most places to visit being a ten minute or less drive away. If you don't have young kids you could even walk. There was a co-op close by which was useful to stock up on goods. All in all our stay here was fantastic, the owner offering to pop over to see if we had settled and needed anything added the personal touch.
