  • "Fantastic sized house."

    As a mixed generational family gathering (from1-90) it suited us really well. Plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing , the games room was a big hit. Plenty of pans, glasses crockery and cutlery so you didn’t need to keep washing up. Most rooms had en-suites which was brilliant all the showers worked really well. The beds were comfy and everyone had a good nights sleep. The beach was under a10 minute walk and the weather was great. Penmaenmawr had lovely shops and a great Pizza place. An information book would have been helpful and a comments book from previous guests to see where they recommend. Thank you we all had a great time

  • "We had a wonderful week at Mountain view."

    Multi generations enjoyed this huge rambling, slightly battered, old house. We were able to relax and not be too precious with the children. There were a few minor issues, easily fixed, and to be expected in a house this size, but the week went very well. The house was clean and the kitchen was well equipped for catering to the 48 family members at our early-week peak.

  • "Fantastic holiday home for large groups of families and friends especially those with children, the massive dorm is perfect and exciting for the children."

    The games room is fab for both adults and children. The kitchen/ dining area is a fantastic large hosting area. We had a couple of small issues when we first arrived but Mark was a brilliant landlord and sorted them straight away. We would definitely recommend and return again.

  • "Our group, 18 adults, 11 children and a dog had an amazing weekend at Mountain View."

    The house is perfectly set up for this amount of people. There was loads of hot water, towels, bedding kitchen equipment, comfy beds. The games room was loved by the children and they loved exploring "the mansion" It is right in the village and is a lovely walk down to the amazing beach. We had a problem with the fuse box tripping and this was quickly resolved by the owner. The internet cable had been cut, which we replaced ourselves, not a big deal. There are some issues however that if resolved would make this house perfect. All the bathrooms are lovely and new but some have leaks, some don't drain, some toilets don't flush. There is not as much outside space as advertised and parking for 3 cars. The main issue though is everything and everywhere needs a full deep clean. This could so easily achieve a much higher rating with a decent team of cleaners and then we would be definitely be back.

  • "The Property was absolutely perfect for what we wanted it for."

    A Stag Doo with 32 people the property was great as it offered both space for the different groups but also grouped areas for communal games / activities. The games room is a fantastic space and again adds another dimensions to this property. Mark and his team at Huge Holiday Homes were an absolute pleasure to deal with in the lead up to the holiday an Mark even popped in to make sure we were all okay when we arrived.

  • "The property was ideal for our family gathering, plenty of space, well equipped kitchen, ample dining area, great games rooms where the kids could enjoy themselves without disturbing the grown-ups!"

    We have to say however that we were disappointed with the level of cleanliness when we arrived, some floor areas didn't appear to have been properly swept or vacuumed and there were bits of rubbish here and there: particularly in the present climate of infection avoidance and increased awareness of hygiene measures, we expected to find a much higher standard of cleanliness than we did; a good deep clean wouldn't go amiss. There are a few matters that could do with attention: a lack of bedside lights and also non-slip bath or shower mats, particularly in rooms likely to be used by people with disabilities or mobility problems: bedroom 2 (ground floor twin) was too warm for comfortable sleep and there was no means of ventilation (the windows were fastened or painted shut) except by propping the door open and the door closer was set too strong so the door closes too fiercely: in the ensuite of the basement family room the toilet cistern filled with hot water instead of cold, which indicates a plumbing issue: in the ground floor double the flow control in the shower didn't appear to be working properly. Also, could the lock on the side entrance door not be programmed with the front door opening code? This would be helpful paricularly again for those with mobility issues, to avoid the need for another person having to go round and through the house to open the door from the inside. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it's a lovely area, plenty to do for all ages. We would certainly consider this property again, particularly if the problems we've mentioned were resolved!

  • "The house was big and well set out."

    It had everything we needed. It was in an ideal location. The WiFi wasn’t working and as soon as we reported it someone came out to try and fix it. The housekeeper Gill was very helpful when we thought enough beds hadn’t been made up the fact was we hadn’t yet discovered three of the bedrooms ha ha....A very easy weekend away, easy booking, easy check in and out which no one bothering up- Great stuff

    New equipment had to be bought into the property ,calls were made to the owner and the head cleaner, we received call backs from the head cleaner and Sykes ,the owner did turn up on the Thursday evening before we left to say he was glad we had got it all sorted and got on with our holiday ?, This was a holiday for the whole joint family from 9 months old to 98 ,and cost almost £5000 ,so why should we have to spend all that money on a property that was not fit for purpose at the time ,and spend two days of the holiday putting things right ,we have booked many cottages with Sykes in the past 10 years and this is the first time we have come across conditions like this . On the sat 31 aug after getting home and unpacking ,we sent a message to the head cleaner to make sure all was ok ,She replied with a Thank you for leaving the property in a clean and fit condition ,and also that she was doing a report for the owner with photos of all the damage done before our holiday and the dormitory that was trashed .sykes have in formed us that no reply has come back off the owner,but they will look into it ,well it is now two weeks since our return and three weeks since we first notified Sykes of the problems with this property . Looking forward to your reply and the owners answers .

    We went to celebrate my mums 75th birthday. Family came from Manchester, London, Shrewsbury and Cyprus to make mums birthday a special one. All grandchildren and great grandchildren came and there was plenty for them to do. We never saw them except for meals. The house has large rooms for everyone to mingle. It was one of the best weekends. Beds were comfy, clean bedding and towels were provided for. A walk to the beach is only 10 minutes away. It was perfect. Thank you Sharron Baxter and family

    We were a mixture of families and friends. Rooms to suit every combination. The cellar is a brilliant space for games, yoga and a fantastic disco. Kitchen is well supplied with utensils, crockery and big pans, ovens and X3 fridge freezers were well used. Dining area and through to lounge gave easy space for us all be together. Plenty of hot water and well controlled heating. The town is lovely, the beach and hills on the doorstep. I wish I'd known more about local businesses in advance and would have used them better.

  • "Mountain View is situated in a great location, and has a number of good sized en-suite rooms."

    All were basic but clean and there was plenty of hot water for the showers. Some touches would be nice, such as some loo roll when you arrive. A cafetiere, over gloves, cleaning cloths and more tea towels would also be appreciated. Plus some of the rooms could do with a lamp. I understand that for groups which are using the dorms for a large number of young people. the games area downstairs is great. We did find for a large family that a quiet sitting area to talk would be good - but also had fun with the darts, pool table etc.

    There was 22 of us all together and everyone was so impressed with the house. It's amazing! Lots of space, incredible value for money and great facilities in the house. We even had a dog with us who also thoroughly enjoyed his holiday! Everything about booking this place was so easy and I can't fault it. It's also in an amazing location with walks up the mountain one way and a stroll along the beach the other way. Highly recommended for a big group.

  • "We have just returned from a 3 night stay at mountain view, we were a large group of 28 and the property was absolutely perfect."

    The location is ideal with a variety of shops and food outlets within walking distance with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. There was plenty of room for the entire family, the lounge was a perfect size for socialising and the kitchen was a fantastic size and well equipped. Each room was laid out wonderfully and was very well cleaned. The Christmas decorations were also put up before our arrival which was a perfect addition. It was simple to navigate around the property with the use of door numbers for each bedroom. The children’s dormitory was fantastic and allowed for plenty of space for them to run and play but also be near enough to the rest of the family. The bet feature of this property is the games area including an air hockey table, pool table and disco lights , everyone made use of the area and was especially loved by the children. Although the stairs are steep and connect via the living area, stair gates are provided. We all had a fantastic time at mountain view and we would recommend to everyone.

  • "On arrival you were meet with a overwhelming smell of disinfectant like someone had just sprinkled it everywhere,the smell remained for days."

    Not enough car parking space says 6 cars and this would be possible if someone cleared out all the rubbish and bins from the car parking area and general clean up required. On arrival there was not one toilet roll in any of the bathrooms. Not enough seating in the living room and the seating there is is in quite poor condition and requires updating and more adding. The down stairs dormitory had a fire door at the end leading to the outside smoking area with a low push bar opener meaning any children left in the room could easily open the door and be outside on a extremely busy road. We had to have a Adult sleep in there with the children 3 quite high steps into the property. The stairs are quite steep and tend to narrow as climbing. Oven has a broken rubber seal and the frying pans and trays need replacing. There is plenty of cultery and crockery. The games room was very popular with the children. There is frequent bus service runnng through the village The railway station and beach is a short walk. The house is very big with plenty of room for large groups. Overall the property is in need of some updating and some TLC

    The only disappointment was having no loo roll at all when we got there. As everything else was provided it didn't occur to us that toilet roll wouldn't be, which isn't the best introduction to a property when people have been driving for hours to get there! Other than that, everything was great - location fab, locals really friendly and the beanbag a revelation!

The property

This magnificent former hotel and pub has been completely redesigned to offer fantastic, spacious accommodation across four floors, in a prominent location in the heart of the popular North Wales walking and cycling town of Penmaenmawr.

This superb detached property is nestled in an elevated position close to the Sychnant Pass, on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park, and offers comfortable accommodation for large groups and family celebrations.

This purpose-designed holiday accommodation offers 17 bedrooms, eleven with en-suite facilities, plus a ‘dorm’ area with 4 single beds plus a separate area with lounge, kitchen and bunk area, ideal for the children to make their own.

The bedrooms are predominantly super king-size doubles with a zip/link option, so that they can be converted into twin beds on request.

There is also a magnificent four-poster bedroom, one single room, one with a pull-out bed, and a family room which, with the kids area, make the property ideal for youth groups, schools, large family get-togethers, friends’ reunions or well-behaved stag and hen parties!

The main living areas are spread over the ground and lower ground floors and include a sitting room with a TV and projector screen, where you can view the latest films or perhaps watch a major sporting event.

Head downstairs to discover a disco room with multi-coloured lighting, state-of-the-art sound system and a glass covered floodlit stream.

Alongside this is a games area which will provide both kids and adults with hours of fun, with a pool table, shuffleboard, table football, air hockey and darts.

The dining area offers a communal area for up to 36 guests to sit and relax comfortably, with a breakfast bar providing further seating for nine people.

Across the road from Mountain View is a parade of Victorian canopy-covered shops and a restaurant, and further along the road you will find more restaurants, takeaways, supermarkets and a couple of village pubs, along with several golf clubs within a short drive.

The famous Fairy Glen waterfall is easily reached on foot via the North Wales Path which runs past the property, and the Wales Coast Path passes within quarter of a mile, leading to sandy beaches, cycle paths, walks to Conwy and Bangor, and numerous sailing and watersports opportunities.

There is an abundance of activities in the area including the High Ropes tree adventure centre, Zip World with the longest zip-wire in Europe and Bounce Below with its underground trampolines stretched over former slate caverns.

A fantastic holiday property offering entertainment in abundance.

About the location

PENMAENMAWR

Conwy 5 miles.

Nestled on the North Wales coast between Llanfairfechan and Conwy, Penmaenmawr is an old quarrying town now adapted into a delightful community stretching along this stunning coastline, yet retaining much of its Victorian architecture, with many local pubs, restaurants and shops, a superb golf course and golden, sandy beaches. Set on the side of the Tal-Y-Fan mountain, many parts of Penmaenmawr and its sister village Dwygyfylchi enjoy stunning views across Conwy Bay to Llandudno, Puffin Island, Anglesey and the Irish Sea, and if you are lucky, dolphins and seals can sometimes been see playing in the bay. A recently opened cycle path leads along the coastal path to Conwy Marina to the East, and Llanfairfechan to the west. Or, head up the Conwy valley through the Sychnant Pass on to the mountain trails that abound there. The sailing club in Penmaenmawr is well established and welcomes day guests, as does the 9 hole golf course, set amongst stunning coastal scenery on the lower slopes of the village. On the promenade you will find numerous activities such as a skate park, a children's paddling pool as well as a beach cafe which is open most of the year. There are also beach huts on the promemade that you can hire by the day. Also near to the beach is a bowling green and all weather tennis courts.
