Guest Comments:

Mr J (May 2019): Excellent "Home from home plus, very comfortable, everything you could need was there, added to all this the view from the deck was spectacular, and very comfortable beds at the end of the day."
The M Family (Apr, 2019): "Fabulous apartment, especially with the larger kitchen. It really has the wow factor. Our 6th year at Snowdon Wharf, the 1st with a dog, so thank you for allowing a pet into your home. The weather was amazing (the best ever) so we enjoyed a lovely walk from Tan y Bwlch to Penrhyn beach (traeth bach) to Morfa Bychan, an easy walk, Criccieth and Morfa Nefyn (the beach at the RNLI station was beautiful). Two trips to Coed y Brenin and messing about around Ballast Island completed our week. We will be back!"
