  • "Whilst the property was clean and tidy it was the little things that needed attention the bathroom cupboard doors had no catches to keep closed the kitchen floor had a loose board and the rotting deck boards caused us concern something that was commented on in the visitor book during 2022."

  • "Very pleased with our accommodation."

    Weather was good. Just one suggestion can you provide freezer facilities I.e. fridge freezer which would be good during hot weather.

  • "The lodge was in a very nice and peaceful area but maybe more adequate if you have a car."

    Property was a good base to explore North Wales. Basic accommodation and clean. No frills, Worse thing was the shower (very small and temperature difficult to control). Also disappointed in not having any response from the owner when I sent messages, specially when the shower head broke.

  • "Perfect starting point to explore the north of Wales."

    Very nice and quiet location with marvelous view, phantastic terrasse, friendly welcome by James, great offer of TV programs and WLAN, kitchen nicely equipped, double bed not so comfortable, couches in living room very low and not easy for elder people, rain came through the roof and it started smelling a bit, outside barbecue very dirty.

  • "Needs a good overhaul it past its best get the impression the owners are running it down no freezer."

    Patio door needs rehanging. Shower control stiff to move but didnt work anyway. Gutters leaking in several places. Decking rotten wood in several places. Bbq filthy. Disappointing

  • "On arrival the lodge was spotlessly clean."

    And an ideal place to visit local attractions. But sadly a double oven and a freezer were not there even though advertised as having both. The grill of the barbeque was so dirty we declined from using it . The lodge is looking tired and in need of an upgrade . The decking has gone in holes in several places where the wood has rot. The shower head would not stay up and we had to sort with a screwdriver. The French doors had dropped and the hinge on one side broken so had an inch gap above. Also the curtain hold back was hanging off the wall. We were told that these would be fixed on the Monday sadly the owner was not seen to fix these things even though he visited the site on several occasions. A great shame as it is an ideal place with lovely views.

    Close to everything we wanted to do and see. Beaches and snowdonia within easy reach. Lodge itself was fine, clean and comfortable (a hairdryer would be a great addition) kitchen well appointed and had everything we needed to cook ,clean etc etc. Nice hot shower and comfy beds.

  • "For them huge prices we expected alot more stayed in some stunning places half the price and got much more."

    Welcome hampers ect lodge needs modernised and new sofas put in could feel the springs. View was lush but wouldn't pay that price to stay there again. Not for what is offered.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner was a little surprised at your comments as you appeared to enjoy your stay, and the owner assisted you on a number of occasions during the week , even providing you with a BBQ, but was unable to agree to your request to take a dog a few days before your arrival, as the property is strictly ' pet free'. The owner takes great pride in providing a lovely stay for all guests as you will see from all the great feedback going back to 2006. However, the owner has taken on board your comments regarding the sofas and although they are currently fully functional they are being replaced in the Winter. Thank you again for the feedback Property Owner
