Guest Comments: New property:
Mr H (April 2019): "Excellent! There's always the odd niggle, of course. But really, a very nice modernised apartment. Just excellent!"
Mrs R (March 2019): "Everything fantastic. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. My frail 90 year old dad loved shower as it was easy to get in and out of and had great flow. The layout was very practical and we needed for nothing. The location, amazing views from all windows including the steam trains. Little beach outside great to watch birds and people coming and going. Very close to Portmeirion very short walk to wide range of traditional shops. All pubs served food and allowed dog."
