"The flat is nice and is central, however there were some problems."
It is draughty, not double glazed, the duvets are far too heavy for the season and there is no provision of an alternative. A blanket or two for each bedroom would make a big difference. The fitted sheets did not fit and were threadbare. There was one roll of toilet paper provided for a weeks rental. There was no washing up brush or clothe for the kitchen and just a couple of tea bags in a jar which is not a warm welcome.
"First class apartment, exceptionally clean in the centre of town with parking ..."
First class apartment, exceptionally clean in the centre of town with parking could not ask for better accommodation, look forward to next year
"The apartment was lovely & clean, very well situated for beach, pier and shops, ..."
The apartment was lovely & clean, very well situated for beach, pier and shops, lots of excellent places to eat, The Hambone in Lloyd Street is definitely a must, we’ve stopped here 3 times now & will definitely be returning
"The apartment has a direct view of the ocean, my children *loved* watching for the rainbow beach lights to come on and it was extra motivation for them to go out again."
Definitely visit the west shore beach to get a taste of powerful waves and a fun playground - do take your 30p for the bathroom! Also, recommend visiting Bodafon petting farm, the play area there is the best we visited and we spent quite a while hanging out. They actually liked that better than the Welsh Mountain Zoo :)
The reserved parking is a HUGE perk for this flat and the building itself is quiet and in great condition. I've seen reviews complain about rubbish disposal, but anyone used to recycling should find it super easy. Plus, the back alley is quiet and we never had any issues taking our trash/recycling around.
Llandudno itself is everything I wanted in our holiday. The Ormes framing the beach are spectacular. The pier completely wow'd the kids. The town itself has lots of different shops, including familiar ones, so it was easy to grab food and also fun to browse. Llandudno is also exceptionally clean.
We will definitely be back and hopefully stay in this flat again. For those driving from S. Wales, give the A470 a go. It has wonderful views and fun towns. The Elan Valley Welcome Center is a good stopping point too.
p.s. the washing machine is working with no issues. The flat also had soap, oil, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, etc in it.
"Great location, lovely accommodation."
Washing machine out of order was only complaint. Lovely view from living room window to sea.
"Lovely flat in a great location, very comfy and no issues with neighbours."
Allocated parking a big plus. Downsides, is listed as having a washing machine, which was out of order and judging by the note had been for a while. We'd packed expecting to be able to wash so Marks and Spencer benefited and our wallets suffered. You are asked to wash up and put away as a Covid precaution. This is nonsense as using something someone else has allegedly washed and put away is not Covid safe. The advice should be to wash everything carefully before use.
"The apartment is well situated for shops, beach, and a reserved parking space an added bonus."
We hope to return.
"Very clean, with everything available."
The only minus was having to take-out the rubbish to the back of the flats.
"Lovely Clean and Airy Apartment."
Beds and Sofa's very comfortable. Very well located. To echo what others have said could really do with two sets of keys and a bit more guidance on recycling for the bins.
"A lovely apartment, excellent location for beach, shops etc."
Highly recommended. My husband and I have stayed here twice, thank you Sykes for two fantastic holidays.
"Yes, some feedback we would like to give, is that much more information should be given in the flat, about the arrangements for disposal of the rubbish:
Although from the leaflet we did find the bins to which we had to take our rubbish (in a yard in the next street, behind the property), that yard is complicated in that has the bins for many properties, -so it would be useful to note on the leaflet which bin we should be looking for, i."
E. the flat street address AND appartment number, as the tenant needs that info when they get to the yard to navigate through all the bins.
Also to know that in the yard the bins are split into 4 categories for the recycling, -whereas the flat only has one small bin, for obvious reasons of limited space.
If we knew before moving our rubbish that would have to sort it for the yard, that would have been very useful, -I suggest a photo or two on the in-flat info sheet of what to expect in the yard would be a big help on this.
Also i think the prior tenant did not pass this challenge, as some of the flat's bins were still with unsorted rubbish in from previous week, flies and all.
Also we did not find noted in the info the day of week when rubbish is collected, -normally properties give that info.
"3rd stay in this apartment and I will use it again when I want to come to North Wales, light, airy and modern, easy access and a parking space."
"Our only annoyance was that there was only one set of key."
Inconvenient when three adults were staying in the property.
A DVD player would have been nice, especially staying out of season.
Other than that we had a very nice stay in a nice apartment.
"Fantastic apartment , everything you need ."
Warm and cosy , comfy beds sea view and the added benefit of your own parking space. Also the weather was kind to us for february. Shall recommend to friends . Will hopefully return sometime. Thank you Sykes and of course the owners .
"The apartment was beautiful spotless clean warm and only a stones throw to all ..."
The apartment was beautiful spotless clean warm and only a stones throw to all the amenities pubs restaurants sea side shops and a bonus car park space superb
"Just the perfect base to enjoy a wonderful Victorian seaside town surrounded by the stunning Welsh countryside"
"This was my second holiday in this apartment and it was just as good as I had remembered."
The view of the sea from the bay window is a real bonus. The apartment was spotless on arrival and had all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. It is ideally located as the town centre is only a few minutes walk away. Public transport system is excellent and I didn't use my car all week. A designated parking space makes it even more convenient. Already planning a third visit!
"Ideal location, handy for all facilities but the bonus of all, especially in Llandudno is a designated parking spot."
The property as usual with booking through Sykes Cottages proved yet again to be first class.
"Excellent apartment very clean."
Convenient for shops, beach and pier, lots of excellent places to eat out. Would definitely recommend and will be staying here again
"The property is centrally situated within Llandudno with easy reach of the main shopping area with close access to restaurants - The Cottage Loaf and pubs - The Albert, Tapps, The Kings Head."
The prom is situated directly to the front of the property no more than two streets away. With regards to transport the Llandudno railway station is also within close proximity making access to other locations like Conwy and further even simpler. In all a thoroughly enjoyable time in a great apartment.
"This apartment has everything you need for a weeks holiday."
It is light, bright and fully functional as well as being perfectly situated. It was a joy opening the blinds in the morning and breakfasting whilst looking down the street towards the bay. The apartment is fully equipped to a decent standard. Overall, this is the best apartment of its kind I have stayed in. Highly recommended.
"Located in good position for everything thats needed,view of sea,allocated parking,will book this apartment in future."
"Lovely clean modern apartment, ideally situated for shops, beach, pubs etc."
on site parking was a bonus, enjoyed the holiday so much that we have booked for next year.
"Simply the best holiday in superb location"
"Fantastic apartment in a very convenient location in Llandudno."
Perfect for adults and families.
Very well maintained and spotlessly clean.
We had a question and the owner responded immediately and was incredibly helpful. I would highly recommend this superb accommodation in a delightful seaside town.
"Very comfortable place and convenience to shops, coffee shops and transport"
"This apartment was stunning and certainly delivered the WOW factor!"
It was modern, bright, clean and cosy. It was extremely close to Llandudno town centre and the sea view was an added bonus. The heating was efficient and quickly warmed up the apartment after being out all day. The off-road car parking space was very useful as I made use of good bus and train services and did not use the car all week. Thank-you for a great week.
"Apartment 3 was absolutely perfect by way of location, cleanliness and the facilities the actual apartment offered."
The apartment block is very well maintained and quiet.
We felt very comfortable here and it was an added benefit to have an allocated parking space as looking out the window you can see just how busy the surrounding area is with most parking spaces by the roads being full throughout the day. We did have some trouble working out the car parking bollard at first and the owner actually called us direct to check everything was ok which was very nice of him.
It was also a nice surprise for us to realise the apartment actually offers a sea view, as it is located directly down the street from the beach which was lovely.
If we are ever in the area again we will 100% be booking again. Thank you!
"A wonderful apartment, set in a central location very handy for facilities."
The apartment was well maintained, warm and comfortable, a pleasure to be there for a weeks holiday. Looking forward to returning some time next year.
"Great location, within walking distance of the beach."
Clean and tidy apartment with all the amenities required. Excellent standards.
"A modern and comfortable apartment, fairly central and within easy walking distance of Llandudno's many attractions."
The private parking space provided was invaluable as Llandudno is a busy place and roadside parking spaces are
at a premium.
