  • "Llys Madoc is a great place for relaxation and sea views."

    This flat is ideal for us and this was our third visit and always our first choice when we come to north wales. Marie and Irene make sure that it is most welcome and nothing is too much trouble. We are greeted with a lovely tray of goodies and very clean accommodation. This will not be our last stay here.

  • "Lovely property, fantastic views and best welcome tray we have ever been provided."

    Care, cleanliness and attention to detail and friendliness of owners was really good. Oven was a little difficult to light and set temperature due to control knob indicators being difficult to read but once mastered was fine. We will be back, thank you.

    .. and some. The ever changing view, which is what sold it to me, didn't disappoint. The welcome tray and all the extras were unexpected but great. The kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need. The owners were even on hand with a friendly smile when I managed to set off the smoke detector.

  • "We have stayed at Llys Madoc twice before in the top flat which we loved, and as I am a bit older we decided to try the first floor flat."

    We were not disappointed and now love that one as well as its only one flight of stairs to reach. The view was just as good as the top and very comfortable and clean, the shower was very good. This will not be the last time to come here and we are looking to stay next year for longer. A lovely welcome pack greeted us on arrival Thankyou very much.

  • "The washing machine is a great asset."

    The view from the windows looking on the seaside is breathtaking no matter the season. Special note for the little fireplace heater : i loved it. The location is also a fantastic asset : very close from the beautiful medieval city of Conwy (10 minutes by car), not far off the britannia bridge to bring you to Anglesey and maybe half an hour by car from the astonishing city of caernarfon. North Wales at its best ;)

    Then look no further. This property blends modernity with nature in ways that are best decribed as 'simply amazing'. Spend your holiday here and you'll not want to go back home. So much heart and soul put into this place by the owners. Thank you Irene, Marie and Jim.

    Excellent location for both the sea access and Wales highlight all around Snowdonia visit. The owners welcome tray and choice of interior decoration was heart warming as well. Even though December still greatly enjoyed the weather along with the nature and everything else. Definitely will visit again if the opportunity arises.

  • "The apartment is lovely, well equipped and comfortable with a stunning view from the living room."

    Our only quibble would be that the bedroom would benefit from double glazing, especially in colder months. There was a slight draft and noticeable traffic noise at times - but on the whole we loved the property and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, missing it already.

    Thank you for your comments. We are pleased to confirm, all windows in the apartment are now double glazed. Property Owner

  • "We have had a wonderful week."

    The property was as advertised. It was very comfortable and clean. The sea views were beautiful. Especially the sunsets. Instructions were clear for arriving and departure i.e. key collection. The only thing to mention is that the walk up from the car was a little steep so some may find some difficulties depending on mobility. Facilities provided were more than adequate and the extra little additions were more than welcome. The Promenade and sandy beach which is less than a 10 minute walk down(again may be a little steep ) is delightful with cafe& toilets. Well maintained. Would definitely recommend and hopefully return as plenty more to see.

  • "Accommodation was perfect for the 2 of us, very comfortable bed."

    The view from the living room was worth the holiday alone as we had perfect weather. Great place to relax and take things easy but with the added bonus of Llandudno, Conwy and Snowdonia almost on the doorstep. Would be more than happy to stay here again. Thanks

  • "The place was perfect for our needs, and the owners (a lovely couple) couldn't have been nicer or more helpful."

    It was clean, very comfortable, and gave us exactly what we needed to enjoy our stay. And the view genuinely is fantastic from the windows upstairs, it gives a real snapshot of the multifaceted place that is Penmaenmawr. Great base if you have a car, but also really good if you just want to use public transport, as the station is a 5-10 minute walk and there's a bus every 20 minutes from almost outside the door, going on a route between Llandudno and Conwy one way and Bangor/Caernarfon the other (the bus will say Bangor, but it goes onto Caernarfon from there).

    Would suggest the replacement of oven/ grill knob as unmarked, also include info on how to light grill/ oven. Really enjoyed the flat and Penmaenmawr is so central for outings in all directions, lots of enjoyable visits to Anglesey ( Copper Mine), Llandudno, Betws -y-coed, Portmeirion. We had difficulties booking evening meals, 3 establishments in village were closed or closed down, many places contacted were fully booked. Not sure if this was COVID related ie lack of staff or rules. We had lovely meals at Fairy Glen, Groes inn and takeaway from the Indian in Conwy but would suggest people plan ahead and book.

    The flat had everything we needed for our holiday, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the welcome tray left by the owners when we arrived was appreciated and a very nice touch. The highlight of this flat is the view from the large window in the lounge......just amazing. Uninterrupted views across to Anglesey and just sea as far as you can see. It was so relaxing after a hard days walking to just crash on the comfy chairs in the lounge and just watch the sunset and sea out of the window. The bed is large and comfy, and the heating easily controllable to ensure you are as toasty or cool as required. We will definitely return to this flat on another excursion to North Wales.....whilst we were there we did try and book another week at the end of August, but they are fully booked all the way through, that’s how taken we were. Thank you for a lovely week in your flat !!

About the location

PENMAENMAWR

Conwy 5 miles.

Nestled on the North Wales coast between Llanfairfechan and Conwy, Penmaenmawr is an old quarrying town now adapted into a delightful community stretching along this stunning coastline, yet retaining much of its Victorian architecture, with many local pubs, restaurants and shops, a superb golf course and golden, sandy beaches. Set on the side of the Tal-Y-Fan mountain, many parts of Penmaenmawr and its sister village Dwygyfylchi enjoy stunning views across Conwy Bay to Llandudno, Puffin Island, Anglesey and the Irish Sea, and if you are lucky, dolphins and seals can sometimes been see playing in the bay. A recently opened cycle path leads along the coastal path to Conwy Marina to the East, and Llanfairfechan to the west. Or, head up the Conwy valley through the Sychnant Pass on to the mountain trails that abound there. The sailing club in Penmaenmawr is well established and welcomes day guests, as does the 9 hole golf course, set amongst stunning coastal scenery on the lower slopes of the village. On the promenade you will find numerous activities such as a skate park, a children's paddling pool as well as a beach cafe which is open most of the year. There are also beach huts on the promemade that you can hire by the day. Also near to the beach is a bowling green and all weather tennis courts.
