Guests Reviews:
AS (Jan 2024):
Excellent "Very calm and nice neighbourhood by the harbour. Definitely coming back for a longer stay"
RS (Oct 2023) 4.3 STARS: "OK, so this flat doesn't exactly overlook either the harbour or the sea, but it suited our needs nicely. Although there were only two of us using it, it would be fine if you have one or two small children with you. It's a very easy walk into town, and the Ffestiniog Railway station with its excellent Spooner's Bar is even nearer. The car space right in front of the flat made unloading and loading as easy as any where we've stayed. Would definitely try to book this place again."
JH (Oct 2023): Excellent "Holiday bliss. Wonderful accommodation,but,bring your own hanging shower caddy. We found Lidle’s centre isle invaluable for home comforts that we had forgotten. Position of flat suited us because we spent a lot of time at the railway which we could walk to"
SR (Sep 2023): Excellent "It was our first time to Porthmadog. The apartment was situated in a stunning position by the harbour. With all amenities close by. Very dog friendly eating places. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay. We will definitely return for another holiday"
GC (Aug 2023): 4.8 STARS "Great Location & Restful. We loved the location, great for the Ffestiniog and the town. Lovely to be able to see the harbour the island and the wild birds"
NO (Aug 2023): Excellent "Had a really enjoyable stay and would definitely return. Couple of very small things that would have made a difference: Hooks on rear of bathroom door. Provision of bottle and tin opener and bread knife. Thank you."
CB (July 2023): 4 STARS "We stayed as a family of four in this small but very well located apartment. We enjoyed it very much and would be happy to recommend it."

The Apartment was newly refurbished and furnished and was very clean and comfortable. I think the description needs to make it clearer that the harbour can only be viewed when sitting outside on the patio. When sitting inside the view is of a line of parked cars. There needs to be more kitchen utensils - there were no scissors, corkscrew, bottle opener or bread knife and very few bowls for preparing and cooking meals.
