We stayed for one night in the self catering two bed cottage, but took breakfast in the farmhouse. Well worth looking at this place for a holiday or stop over for ferry as we did. A very warm welcome was received. Would def stay again if traveling to Ireland from Holyhead.

Staying overnight before heading to Ireland. Normally we stay in a local hotel, but decided to give this B&B a go. The facilities, decor, staff are all brilliant .. The room is beautifully decorated as well as being cosy and light. We will definitely be back !!

I wasn't wrong as on arrival the staff were so friendly and welcoming which means a lot when you travel solo. The room was immaculate and lovely décor but with a lovely... More

Room was very clean and the hospitality tray with its offerings of quality teas, coffees etc. was the best we have ever seen. We are... More

This is basically a B & B, plus caravan site. Seagull Cottage, the only self catering unit on site seems to have started life as a utility room, very, very tiny. Water ran out half way through shower and then came back extremely hot and then extremely cold. Suspected that huge boiler in kitchen area fed whole complex with us... More

Stayed for 2 nights in tent, nice and quiet, good location between South Stack and Trearddur Bay. Showers and toilet block adequate. Separate area for kids to play ball games. Staff on site pleasant and helpful. Good sized pitches. Breakfast available on site. Will stay here again. Free wi fi was brilliant.
