"What a lovely apartment in a stunning location . We stayed here for 5 nights and it was just perfect . Easy to get to other places in Wales, Portmiriann was my favourite. Try the Mood Restaurant across the estuary, perfect pizza and homemade burgers . We would highly recomend this apartment, so peaceful and relaxing , we loved our stay , thank you [Emoji Removed]"
IE 10 Jun 2022: 4.5 Stars "Port View Bach is lovingly cared for, and it shows. However, being of a "certain age" we found the bed too low to be able to lift ourselves up comfortably of a morning. Likewise the modern sofa did not provide good back support. Nonetheless, the apartment is in a fantastic location and its condition is a credit to the owner. My only real gripe is with STS Holidays. They provide a top-class booking service but fail to mention in the booking terms and conditions that there is a £100 security deposit required before they will release the key. The only mention of this comes when you have paid the booking in full - six weeks before your holiday."
DI 17 Apr 2022: 4.7 Stars "We have to say our weeks stay was really enjoyable The apartment was in a great position for watching the activity in the harbour It was fairly comfortable as we would have preferred chairs instead of the settee It comes fairly well equipped and one suggestion we would make is oven gloves we would have appreciated them when getting hot dishes out of the oven We will definitely be coming back"

Greatly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful location, but lack of drawer space for clothing. A washing up bowl would have been helpful and would have saved using more hot water than necessary.. The shower curtain clung to the body and would be improved by siting the shower curtain rail further out from the bath. At this time of year it was difficult to find establishments that provided evening meals.

We stayed for four nights at this great location. We had our dogs with us so we were pleased we were on the ground floor. The property itself was fine; right on the water and a hop, skip and a jump to the centre of town and the railway (which is why we went).

It was the second time we stayed near the harbour and were lucky with the weather again. The apartment was excellent and catered for all our needs and is in great and beautiful location for that part of North Wales, we’ll be back.
