  • "Well situated accommodation, perfectly kitted out with everything needed, comfortable lounge area, serene bedroom environment."

    Interior was stunningly clean. The little touches of dog blankets, throws etc was perfect. We really enjoyed our stay with Driftwood Lodge and would highly recommend this accommodation.

    Thank you so much Kirsty! So pleased you and your pets enjoyed your stay - hope to have you stay again soon. Property Owner

  • "A small but comfortable and well equipped terraced house just off the High street."

    Spent 3 days there with my brother and my dog and really enjoyed ourselves. Great area for lovely beach walks. Only slight negative was there was no parking by the premises but plenty of streets nearby to park. Don’t let this put you off, would definitely go back again some day.

    Thank you for your feedback, I’m glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope to have you stay again! Property Owner

  • "We had a very comfortable stay at Driftwood Terrace ."

    Although compact it was ideal for a couple ,lovely and warm . We followed the istructions for the TV and it was fine .We only used the double bedroom which was adequate for our needs . The second bedroom was very small with bunkbeds but had no storage only a bedside table .Overall very clean and modern with a well equipped kitchen and lovely bathroom with shower . A very small courtyard which we did not use .Ideally situated for walking into the town and nearby facilities and a great little local cafe . We always managed to find a parking space nearby although our stay was in October .We really enjoyed our week and it was a good base for exploring the surrounding area.

  • "Enjoyed the stay everything we needed outdoor area a little small and noise from the pub at the back of us at the weekend but to be expected."

    Pictures made the property look a lot bigger than it was. All in all a nice stay and central to Portmadog high street

  • "Very disappointed with location of property which was essentially down a back alley."

    Parking was a nightmare. The local pub had a beer garden which was open till late and very noisy most of the time. The pictures of the cottage made it look bigger than it actually was. It is not suitable for a family. You cannot realistically cook in the kitchen and the garden at the back is not pleasant at all. The beds were very comfortable but sadly overshadowed by the constant noise from the pub. All in all was really disappointed with the cottage. It cost a lot of money and I did not think it was worth the cost based on other rentals I have stayed in.

  • "The house is really lovely and all the little touches put in place were so thoughtful."

    We especially appreciated the board games and milk in the fridge!! The only things that really bothered us were the kitchen tap (it needs 2 hands to turn on because it's loose) and the toilet seat is a bit wobbly. The house is right in the centre of town and 10 minutes from Black Rock Sands. We had such a good holiday!!!

  • "Overall a good stay but the property would benefit from a little more attention to detail and improved curb appeal."

  • "The garden/patio was an enclosed decked area not really suitable for dogs."

    A hairdryer would have been good and no hoover. Otherwise really well equipped.

  • "1. Freezing compartment of fridge solid with ice and could not be used 2."

    Anti bacterial containers in kitchen and bathroom empty 3. Instructions for using keybox need to be a little more explicit for people who have not used one before and if trying to use when there is not much available light 4. In the event there were only two of us staying but the property is not suitable for 4 adults, especially with the complete lack of clothes' storage cupboards or drawers 5. Other reviewers have commented on the TV. Quite impossible to access terrestial channels using the instructions supplied. Took over 3 hours to work out the sequence of 18 actions that have to be carried out. I left written instructions in the handbook.

  • "Very small property."

    No room to put anything. Certainly not big enough for the 4 it is supposed to hold. The rear patio is totally enclosed by high brick walls so there is nowhere to sit in the sun.

  • "Clearly a lot of thought has been put into the facilities and decor but just one or two improvements might make it perfect: another pot and pan for cooking dinners maybe another set of cutlery, the freezer compartment completely freezes over very quickly so makes it useless, a bin in the upstairs bathroom, and a broom for sweeping out the property."

    Minor things really which we are sure you'll sort. Everything else was perfect.
