Guest Comments: 
Mrs N (September 2021): Good "It is a small well appointed cottage in a great location. There were some issues that required a visit from the agent - a leak, a door handle and the fan"
Mrs T (September 2021): Good "Location and view from property"
Mr H (July 2021): Good "Very well located property with superb views across the harbour. Very convenient for the Ffestiniog railway and lots of other nearby attractions. Supermarket close by for food and petrol. Very clean and tidy and also quiet. Shower room a little small and watch out for extremely hot towel rail, otherwise accommodation very good."  We have passed on a warning to the new guests who arrived yesterday and will investigate further regarding the towel rail - we welcome all Feedback but do aske for all faults to be reported ASAP.
Ms G (July 2021): Good "Fabulous views from the balcony and in an ideal spot for the beach and town, could do with updating a little but I would definitely visit again"
Mr N (July 2021): Good "Very good accommodation in a great location overlooking harbor & just a few minutes from shops & restaurants. Enjoyed our stay whilst it was the hottest week of the year - could have used a fan to use in the upstairs living area. Only thing missing was toilet rolls!" As a minimum, there should be at least 1 toilet roll per toilet. Sorry that you were let down in this instance.
Mrs W (August 2019): Excellent "Brilliant house in a great location. It was really well equipped and comfy and homely. Looking out to the view of the harbour everyday really made you feel like you were on holiday. We would definitely go back to this property."
Mr B (August 2019): Good "Lovely location - the view from our french windows of the harbour was spectacular. Nice apartment - the toilet and shower rooms were a bit small and could have done with a window each - but the open plan lounge and kitchen upstairs were great for us and our dog. Nice balcony furniture also. I would rate 8 out of ten, overall"
