  • "Minafon was very impressive."

    Clean tidy and well equipped. Double bed extremely comfy. Location is brilliant. We missed our TV in bedroom but this isn't a must for most. The only minor concern...... . Shower too hot in upstairs walk in. Didn't know how to turn it down. Other than that shall definitely stay again. Thankyou so much for a pleasant comfy stay.

  • "The cottage location is superb."

    It's a 2 minute walk to the river and a 5 minute stroll to the bridge in the middle of town. There is dedicated parking next to the cottage. The main road is quite busy with slow moving traffic but we couldn't hear it from inside the cottage. There are 3 bathrooms and lots of beds. My personal preference would be for a firmer mattress but I slept fine. The downstairs rooms are fairly small, it's an old building, but we all had enough space. The kitchen is well equipped and has a dishwasher and washing machine. We had contact with owners a couple of times and they are nice people. The price for our stay was really reasonable.We had a great holiday in Minafon in Llangollen and I recommend it for families.

    Shops, children's play area and even the river for a bare foot paddle all minutes from the property. The owner is very friendly and helpful when needed.

  • "We felt that the description of the traffic noise as being "minimal" was somewhat misleading as the cottage was less than a metre from the A5 and, it being summer, we felt the need to keep the windows open."

    However the proximity of the cottage to the town centre via a Riverside walk was a real advantage for our family. We felt that the provision of 4 dishwasher tablets for our use was insufficient for a weeks stay in a cottage that accommodates up to 6 people. 7 tablets would be a more appropriate number. We enjoyed our stay very much and would be very happy to stay in the cottage again. Thank you

  • "+ We really enjoyed our week at Minafon and would stay again."

    Great location with 3 bathrooms, spacious living areas and good sized bedrooms. Llangollen was beautiful and there are plenty of things to do to pass the time. - Check in time was changed only 2 days before arrival to an hour later which altered our plans last minute. There were at least 5 spiders in every room upon arrival which was more frustrating when the cleaning checklist in the kitchen had a tick next to the cleaning of high up areas. Communal outside bin was full upon arrival on Saturday and replaced on Thursday. Was full again when we deparred- it may be worth investing in a second communal bin. I would recommend and definitley stay again.

  • "First the good points; nicely situated near park, nicely decorated, has parking (though could do with some tarmac putting down), and freesat available was handy."

    Now the bad points; not clean! Upstairs had obviously not been hoovered (and no hoover provided), though bedding was clean. Downstairs was the worst. We had to sweep the floor 5 minutes after arrival, leaving it in one corner of the room as no dustpan provided, crisps from previous occupants still on floor and just under settee, dirty hand towel in bathroom, long hair in freezer drawer, dirty cuttlery, thick dust on skirting boards - it was quite gross. However, bathrooms were nice and clean, which was surprising due to the state of the rest of it. Seemed like the cleaner had given up after changing the beds and cleaning the bathrooms! Would have been perfect if only it had been completely clean.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We are sorry for the issues you experienced, please be assured this is not the normal expectation we have for our guests as previous feedback shows. Be assured all issues will be addressed and resolved and hope we will welcome you again. Many thanks Property Owner

  • "The outside particularly the back entrance and car parking space was very mucky as we had a lot of rain and using mainly the back door to access the cottage due to it being on a main road we were treading dirt in most of the time."

    The accommodation itself was excellent.
