  • "Very spacious apartment in a great location, will definitely be staying here next time we visit."

  • "Good location as a base for exploring, with plenty of dining/takeaway options a stone's throw away."

    Had everything we needed, though a tray and a teacosy would be useful additions.

  • "Nicky & Aled were very welcoming and quickly reacted to a small problem and even set up the tv for us they are very accommodating."

    The Sykes accommodation we have come to expect didn’t disappoint. A very enjoyable stay and would return.

  • "- no washing machine weak wi-fi signal no bbq in the courtyard + comfy place good location close to shops and attractions /fresh locally sourced beacon from butcher in the morning, 1 minute walk to the butcher :-)/ local pub has 5* on a TripAdvisor, misleading, only one pub in the village hence this rating?"

    ?? obviously this has nothing to do with property

  • "One of the best places we have stayed in."

    After a 300 mile journey it was very warm and welcoming and waiting for us was a vase of flowers fresh baked bread, welsh tea cakes, milk, coffee, enough teabags for the week. There was everything to hand including a lovely fridge freezer and dishwaher. The owners lived above and had left phone numbers in case we should need them. There were 4 takeaways within the village and a vegan cafe, a spar shop, butchers, chemist, newsagents. Very handy for getting to Porthmadog, Beddgelert, Snowdon, Conway and Barmouth. We hope to be able to visit again when everyone is out of lockdown!

  • "It's a brilliant house for a family to stay in."

    We booked this holiday as it's near my family and we wanted a place to stay for ourselves as have our own little family, twin toddlers. We were more than comfortable staying here. It felt like a home and we'd moved in. It was homely and comfortable and I loved the decor. It was very good value for money. The owners were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. They made us feel more than welcome. When we arrived there were fresh flowers, welsh cakes and freshly baked bread from Nicki. Those little touches mean a lot and were very appreciated. We needed an extra cot and highchairs, this was also no trouble. I hope more families get the pleasure of staying here as it was really great. It's in a great location, nothing is too far in terms of days out and exploring north Wales. It's right next to the high street, where there are 4 or 5 different takeaways, which is a lot for a rural area so tourists are very lucky to have it on their doorstep when visiting, as most places are spaced out ( I know from growing up there) because it is the country side. I was beyond happy to stay there and look forward to staying again. Thank you very much for having us!

  • "Great home in Penrhyndeudreath, good location for visiting snowdonia (hiking, activities, etc), great facilities in the kitchen, really nice amenities left by the hosts - welsh cakes, milk, cookies etc."

    Easy to check in and out. Also, there's guest parking next to the house. Comfortable bed, and big room. Really nothing to dislike about this place.
