  • "The flat was warm and comfortable - the views are to die for!"

    We were delighted with the property and the small amount of correspondence we had with the owner was both kindly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Snowdon Wharf."

    The property is cosy and well equipped and ideal for a winter break with the lovely harbour view which can be enjoyed from the first floor open plan kitchen/lounge whatever the weather (which in our case was mostly sunny despite it being January). You're also close to the High Street and nice walks across the estuary next to the train line or along the coastal path. We enjoyed visits to Portmeirion, Barmouth and the Lleyn Peninsula, all in all a lovely holiday.

    Hi Lesley Many thanks for your great feedback. Hope to welcome you back again soon. Best regards Ed Property Owner

    It's wonderfully peaceful and relaxing, I sleep much better than at home. The cottage has everything, and the view is ever changing so there is always something to watch, even the terrible storm we have just had was spectacular. The owner is easy to contact and very helpful. 10/10

    Glad to have welcomed you back again Anne and you enjoyed your stay. Very kind words on your feedback. Best wishes Ed Property Owner

    It has convenient easy parking. With the living room and kitchen upstairs it makes the most of the pretty view over Porthmadog harbour. There is effective wifi and a well equipped kitchen. The minor issues we experienced when arriving were rapidly attended to by Ed. South Snowdon Wharf provided an excellent base for our walking holiday exploring the Llyn peninsula and Snowdonia National Park.

    Thanks very much for your kind feedback. Glad the minor issues were resolved quickly. Hope to welcome you both back again soon. Best regards Ed Property Owner

    It had a very comfortable bed and warm quilt. The view from the lounge window and balcony was lovely, mountains, harbour and the railway engines coming to coal and water everyday, what more could you ask for. The property was within a short walking distance of the town which had places to eat, although I would suggest that if you wanted to eat at any of the restaurants you need to book these, as they seem to be very popular and don’t open on certain days. We had very good instructions from Ed the owner about the property and these were clear and easy to follow. We appreciated the milk and Welsh cakes left for us in the property. Would definite recommend staying at the property especially for railway enthusiasts!

    In serious need of shelving for toiletries. Kitchen cupboards had musty smell every time on opening. In fact, musty smell every time you went in through the front door. Sofas lovely and comfortable, balcony a real bonus. Comfortable double bed, although bedding a little on the tired side, furniture rather dated. Wallpaper coming off wall in single bedroom by bed. Not appealing to sleep in there. Excellent parking. Would recommend a spare key available, just in case.

    Your maintenance points have been noted. As for the musty smell this will be investigated as you are the first to mention this. The new bedding bought one year ago must be showing it’s age. Regards Property Owner
