  • "The cottage location was perfect - easy access to all the attractions in North wales and a lovely place to walk into Rhos on sea in a evening."

    The cleaners really let this place down and the lack of utilities in the kitchen. The tumble drier was filthy, the bathroom showers had mould along the silicone, there was other people's clothes in the dressing table in master bedroom, making you think a proper clean had not been done. (Pictures available) As the house 5 bedrooms the kitchen lacked a few basic items for a large family, who hoped to cook a few family meals - examples such as one baking/roasting tray, no Yorkshire pudding tray, no spare bin bags and no measuring jug... We have been using Sykes cottages for many many years and this is the first negative feedback given. Such a shame as the house is stunning but is let down by the cleaners.

    Dear Mrs. Owen. Thank you for your feedback and comment about the house being stunning. We have had previous feedback about our kitchen ware with comments such as "really good selection of kitchen ware", "kitchen really well equipped "etc. We cannot provide for all possibilities eg soufflé dishes etc. We provide many extra items above and beyond what is expected for self catering accommodation like washing powder, dog treats etc. The shower is not mouldy, but the clear sealant has discoloured and is due to be replaced in the off season. We are exceptionally sorry that clothes were found in the drawer and this has been mentioned to the cleaner. We do a thorough clean each visit and we are sorry if you felt this was not done to your satisfaction, but we strive to take onboard all your comments and thank you for the feedback. Property Owner

  • "Glendalough is an ideal house for a seaside holiday."

    There's plenty of comfortable space, the rooms are all a good size and it is in a quiet residential area. The beach and a snack bar are within a 5 mins walk and 10 mins to shops and other places to drink and eat. The Zoo is just a few minutes drive and Llandudno about 10 minutes away. Wouldn't hesitate to book again.

  • "Likes ,great location ,loads of space , well equipped ..."

    Likes ,great location ,loads of space , well equipped We found the property very clean And we had a lovely stay Slight niggles ,sofa in kitchen is tired , and single beds in back rooms uncomfortable spring mattress We bought a mattress topper

    Thank you for your feedback and the many kind compliments. All the beds except two were new last year. On closer examination we have decided to replace the two mattresses in the back bedroom as we appreciate that children love to jump on beds (having fostered 12 children) and they do get worn out quickly. Two new beds are arriving today. These are luxury Bamboo mattresses we ordered a while ago. Furniture items were delayed due to Covid but have now arrived and we are delivering them this week. We are also replacing the sofa in the rear lounge too as it has been subject to wear and tear too. We are constantly updating and improving the property and hope you will see these improvements next year. Property Owner

  • "The house was amazing - had everything we could possibly have needed for our week away and the welcome gifts much appreciated especially the doggie treats."

    Only one slight issue, no blinds on patio doors so the sun was a bit of a problem in the evening but a very nice problem to have had a by no means a complaint. Yvonne very helpful and replied immediately with a couple of queries I had prior to arrival- would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the not to distant future

  • "Service from sykes fantastic."

    easy to use website, responsive to queries, " before you go" email with key code, directions etc very helpful. House great overall. Fantastic convenient location 2 mins from the sea and the town of rhos with cfes, supermarkets, shops etc. lots of child friendly attractions and walks nearby. Owners very helpful, responsive , easy to contact, Lovely big house, great garden to relax in, pond well covered, felt safe letting my children play in the garden. nice to have some children's toys, dvds etc to use. Kitchen really well equipped, lovely big fridge and freezer. However the house is starting to get a little tatty, the 4 single bed matresses are absolutely knackered, even my 3 yr old asked why there were metal circles poking into her. the dining chairs have temporary covers on them but are essentially perished and shed foam when you touch them. Possibly we just followed a very messy group but the house needs a really good clean. Kitchen and bathrooms were clean but there was quite a lot of dog fur round skirtings and in corners, old popcorn down the back of the reclining sofa, and someone else's dirty t-shirt in the downstairs bedroom behind the shelf. As others have commented the lounge smelt very "doggy" but once we rolled up and removed the rug it was fine, and the owner tells me she has already dealt with this since our departure. Overall we had a great holiday and would consider booking again.

  • "Hi its hard and unfair to give feedback though questions."

    So here we go , the property was large and this was brilliant for the kids and with it being old the walls were solid so we wern't bothered by the kids noise ,kitchen very well equipped, it's a very lovely property. Unfortunately there was a very strong smell of dog In the front room this was very unpleasant. My advice would be to improve the front of the property and make sure the cleaning team do a proper job, please don't take this the wrong way i believe in being honest. The above hasn't put me off and I would love to return.

    We appreciate all feedback and you have many positive comments and despite a low score say you would like to return. However I would like to point out that our property scored a 100% in reviews just two weeks after your visit with no mention of dog smells. We do accommodate pets and the front room is thoroughly cleaned by myself the owner after each visit. In light of your comments all the upholstery has been shampooed and the rug changed to further ensure there are no pet aromas. In our departure information we do request that visitors remove food and rubbish. Unfortunately you did not follow the requests and we spent over an hour removing sweet wrappers, hair extensions, crisp packets under mattresses and marshmallows behind beds. All the beach toys were scattered throughout the property and damage done to a light switch. This was the first time we have ever had to do so much clearing up after guests as all our other guests have been very respectful of the property. Property Owner

  • "We had a fabulous week in Glendalough."

    Very comfortable, spacious house. Lots of lovely touches such as a welcome tray (with tea, coffee, bread etc) and helpful dog equipment. We particularly liked the ‘disco’ lights in the kitchen and the dog-friendly, secure garden. The children loved watching and feeding the fish. Very friendly, accommodating owner. Great location, short walk to seafront and to a nearby nature reserve. Rhos On Sea is a charming resort, nice shops, cafes and takeaways. We would love to return!

The property

An 1880's period property boasting traditional features intertwined with contemporary style, Glendalough is the perfect property from which to explore the coast of Wales.

Resting within the picturesque community of Rhos-on-Sea, this family-friendly property is a true delight of a dwelling.

Hang your coats in the porch and move through into the hallway where the woodburning stove awaits you beneath the traditional beams, with accompanying stain glass windows bringing character to the room, before entering into the open-plan living space; here colourful lights line the room, where an abundance of fantastic appliances sit.

The kitchen area is a true wonder, with the skylight letting in a flow of natural light, here you can enjoy an indoor barbecue before gathering around the table together to toast to a terrific holiday.

Relax into your evening on the reclining sofa in the room, or seek comfort in the sitting room where you can snuggle up in front of the gas fire and enjoy a film from the Smart TV.

If you're in pursuit of a quiet spot to yourself, the snug is a great space to delve into a good book as the warmth of the woodburning stove fills in the room and creates a homely ambiance.

At the end of each evening, the five bedrooms all offer an elegant spot to rest your head; choose from the ground-floor king size, perfectly suited to those less able, or make your way up the stairs where four more bedrooms await you in the form of a master king-size with its own en-suite shower room, a double and two twin rooms, all served by the impressive family bathroom and offering their own ample storage space to house your personal belongings.

The wonder of the property continues at its exterior, where an enclosed courtyard makes a lovely spot to soak in the sun and indulge in an outdoor barbecue, with the added excitement of a fish pond where you can even feed and touch them, something the little ones are sure to love.

Just a short stroll from the property will bring you to the excitement of Rhos-on-Sea, where a plethora of eateries can be found, perfect for any celebratory meal, alongside its beautiful beach, the Bryn Euryn Nature Reserve and a golf course, there's plenty to keep all ages entertained.

Nearby Colwyn Bay is well-worth a visit, with its Welsh Mountain Zoo, even more walking routes in its park and gardens and a picturesque promenade to roam, it makes a great day trip with a tranquil atmosphere.

Nearby Llandudno boasts a wide range of attractions including a pretty pier, botanical gardens, a ski and snowboarding centre and historical landmarks aplenty, or embark on a journey to Conwy to find an abundance of historic delights like no other.

Glendalough is an enchanting dwelling from which to spend quality time with your loved ones on the Welsh coast.
