Guest Feedback:
Mrs L: "Excellent accomodation, very comfortable and very accessable for visiting other places in North Wales. With all the amenities you need on you doorstep. One of the best holidays our cycle group have ever been on. Even got a Christmas card from the owners!"
The A Family: "Many thanks for letting us share your amazing house last week. While we walked around the house our chins literally dropped in amazement, as each room came into view and what a view of the harbour station!"
Mr D: "I have stayed in many rented accommodations over the years but the quality of your accommodation far exceeds any I have been in by a very long way. They are usually full of cheap and tacky furniture and plastic cooking utensils but the quality and presentations in The Custom House was second to none"
Mr G (Aged 5): "A day with out trains is a wasted day!"

Visit Wales Comments (March, 2013):

A comfortable property very convenient for the town with a fabulous outlook onto the harbour and steam trains."
