RS (January 2024): 5 STARS
"A very enjoyable stay over the New Year period in this comfortable and well equipped property. It was fantastic to experience the area and visit the beach during the winter period. The owners kindly left some lovely treats including a bottle of Prosecco which we enjoyed whilst sitting in the sunshine on the beach on New Year's Day. We look forward to staying again sometime soon"
GT (September 2023): Excellent "Lovely accomodation with everything you need. We found the bungalow to be ideal for the two of us and our two dogs. It was, as are all the STS properties that we have stayed at, over the years, as described and as classified by star rating"

LS (August 2023): 4.8 STARS "Lovely property in an excellent location. We really enjoyed our stay at Samson's Place. The bungalow is very comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and the location is excellent. It's in a quiet, peaceful residential area, with a takeaway, convenience store, bar/restaurant a short stroll away, and a lovely, sandy beach within 10 minutes walk. Pretty Porthmadog is a few minutes away by car and has every type of shop you could need. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area, so this property has it all - the opportunity to chill out and relax, or to get out about sightseeing or being more active. We needed to contact the owners over a small matter and they were really helpful, responding quickly to ensure that issue was solved. I can't recommend this beautiful house enough! I'm sure we will return soon"

JT (May 2022): Excellent "We know this area well as we have visited multiple times in the past. However, this is the first time we have stayed at Samson's Place. As soon as we walked in through the front door it felt like home. For the peaceful relaxing holiday we were looking for it was perfect. The totally enclosed back garden was ideal, as we have two small dogs, furthermore it was not overlooked by any adjacent properties so it was totally private. The garden itself was well stocked with mature plants and shrubs and there were a number of feeders that attracted all sorts of birds throughout the day. We found it a pleasure just sitting in the conservatory watching the birds come and go. There is a convenience store and a fish & chip shop in walking distance just around the corner and it is about a 15 minute easy stroll to the beach. For us everything about it was perfect"
Mrs J (May 2019): Excellent "It was wonderfully clean and spacious for the two of us. Very pretty garden. Centrally based for places we wanted to visit. Very quiet."
