Guest Feedback:
MC (September 2023):
Excellent"
A convenient and beautiful spot to stay. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and very accessible. Will book again. Minor suggestion: Bushes in the front garden need trimming down as they mask the wonderful view over the harbour. Provision of bedding and linen very welcome" Thanks for the Review - which are always passed on to the Property Owner.
CR (June 2023): 4.8 STARS "A week with STS holidays at Porthmadoc. The weather was excellent throughout our week. We spent a lot of time at Black Rock Sands. Being able to take the car onto the beach was really useful. On past visits to the area we have travelled the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland railways so this time we concentrated our efforts on Black Rock Sands. We had an excellent week"
