  • "The boiler fires up randomly through the night, in the spare room, very loudly."

    The owner blamed it on the neighbouring apartment but this was total lies as i have 4 videos of the boiler firing up on sperate occasions. Dishonest owners and this property is not suitable for young children.

  • "We loved the location and the apartment, which was spacious and well equipped."

    We have a few small niggles which would be easily addressed and would add to guests' comfort and sleep quality. Both bedrooms really need curtains or blackout blinds. The two security lights, one at the back gate, one on the stone steps, shine brightly, right into the main bedroom whenever anybody passes, and light summer mornings don't allow for restful sleep. The double bed needs new bedding. A flannel sheet and a flocked duvet cover and pillow cases would be better replaced with new cotton bedding. We had read that the beds were hard, so took our own mattress topper, but didn't find them uncomfortable. For anybody sleeping in the smaller bedroom, the boiler pre-heat shouldn't be cutting in every hour or so throughout the night, disturbing the sleep of the guest. It needs to be on a timer. Rest is very important on holiday, so just these small changes could greatly improve the sleep quality of guests. The shower could do with a soap tray or basket for convenience and comfort, especially for those with knee or back problems. A welcome pack of basic provisions would have been nice. It's the first holiday place we've rented which hasn't provided one. Overall, this is a lovely apartment, and one which we would stay in again, without hesitation.

    Great location.

  • "This is a well equipped flat in a wonderful position."

    Our comfort would have been much improved if the blinds actually blocked out the sunlight - they were wholly inadequate in both bedrooms. A good night's sleep is possibly the most important part of a successful holiday - Premier Inn know that!

  • "The apartment was lovely although the pictures led us to believe it had its own balcony."

    We wanted to stay an extra night but the staff at Sykes forgot to tell us you had agreed to this and so it didn't happen. Real shame.

  • "The apartment was fantastic for us."

    Position was perfect overlooking the marina and it had everything you could want. We had only 1 small niggle and that was the main bed mattress is too hard.

  • "Lovely character property with modern interior in a beautiful setting, well equipped and clean."

    Perfect base to explore from. The only downside is the stairs up to the property but this was really not an issue for anyone with average mobility.

  • "The flat was spotless and well furnished, unfortunately it lacks soundproofing and we were repeatedly woken at 6am, or disturbed in the evening by children running up and down, banging doors and 'jumping' in the flat above."

    Also, as reported in other feedback, the king size bed is very hard, I like a firm bed but this was hard. Disappointingly, there was no welcome pack - I expected at least to have some milk supplied (which, reading the visitors book, was once the case!).

  • "Everything was good, only small issue was lack of radiators turning on throughout, between us we could not work out how to get the heating going, which meant we had cold towels, other than that everything was great."

    In an ideal world there would have been a dishwasher but appreciate these apartments are limited in space.

  • "The snowdonia suite was perfect for us."

    It was a great base to explore the surrounding area. Found some great beaches and loved the steam train to beddgelert.

    Thank you for choosing to stay at the Snowdonia suite during your visit to Porthmadog. We are so pleased that the accommodation was perfect for you and that you had such a lovely time. We hope that we can welcome you back to Snowdonia at some point in the future. Property Owner

    Sofas and beds a little uncomfortable. Well appointed apartment

The property

Snowdonia Suite is a wonderful second floor apartment occupying an excellent position within this historic Grade II listed building, which dates back to the early 1800s and formed part of the original cobbled harbour in the town.

The apartment enjoys some stunning and uninterrupted views over the picturesque Porthmadog harbour, encompassing the estuary, mountains and the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Steam Railways.

Accessed via 31 external stone steps this beautiful apartment certainly rewards you once inside with some wonderful views, not to mention the modern, relaxed and stylish interior.

The apartment is an ideal base to explore the beautiful scenery of the Snowdonia National Park and the local sandy beaches and would suit a couple, two friends or a small family.

With influences from the cult film 'The Prisoner' including a pod chair that resembles 'Rover', this well-appointed apartment will not disappoint.

Chic, modern and contemporary the open plan living accommodation naturally divides into a well-equipped and up to date kitchen area, a comfy area for dining, opening to a lovely sitting area with wonderful comfy custom made Chesterfield sofas to sink into and relax with your feet up after a long day out and about walking on the mountains and exploring the wonderful delights the area offers.

Two well-appointed bedrooms, both with flat screen TVs, with the main bedroom also boasting a king-size bed, and a spacious shower room with large walk in shower completes this wonderful holiday apartment.

The Snowdonia Suite is entitled to use a shared decked courtyard on the next level, this is shared with three other holiday apartments, and the decked garden has some wonderful elevated views.

The apartment is superbly placed to enjoy the town's eclectic mix of independent shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and tea rooms, along with some of North Wales' best attractions on the doorstep, the world famous Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland steam railways, and just a couple of miles away the Italianate village and gardens of Portmeirion.

There are some lovely walks, the famous Cob, a sea wall built by W A Maddock who gave his name to this once busy seafaring town, or take a gentle stroll along the coast to the Black Rock Sands beach or the pretty little village of Borth-y-Gest.

The children will love crabbing off the harbour wall, crazy golf in the park or for something completely different, why not try llama trekking?

Enjoy the stunning landscapes, or visit the historic castles at Criccieth, Harlech and Caernarfon.

Explore the Llyn Peninsula, the many watersports opportunities at Abersoch, and the quaint fishing village of Aberdaron.

With plenty on hand, Snowdonia Suite is an ideal base for a short stay or longer all year round.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
