“Fabulous stay at Bod Idris”
Reviewed April 14, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We were 2 couples who have just had a three night stay in the top flat at Bod Idris. We had a great time in Barmouth and the holiday flat was great.

The flat was comfortable, well equipped and had very special views across the water. The only thing I'd say is that the climb up the metal staircase is not for the faint hearted! We are all fairly fit so it was fine but anyone with health problems would struggle. The views when you got there made up for any pain!!

The decor could maybe do with updating but that's a minor quibble. I would definitely recommend the flat. I've attached a picture showing the view from the sitting room.

The flat has a video player in the sitting room with a nice selection of tapes, it was a bit of a blast from the past and we enjoyed working out how to get it going!

We took the train to Portmerion for afternoon tea one day and visited Harlech Castle another. All in all it was a lovely break.

“Great place to stay with wonderful views.”
Reviewed April 7, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Good area for walking. Some good places to eat. Although it was a bit of a trek to the top flat, it was well equipped and very comfortable. Would definitely go back.

True. There are a number of stairs to manage but it has the advantage not only of great views, its location improves your memory and encourages planning - so you don't have to make fruitless trips!

“Spacious Apartment with Exceptional views”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a wonderful stay in Barmouth the apartment it is very spacious and the facilities are surperb Washing machine , Tumble dryer , dishwasher etc all which made the holiday relaxing. The views are outstanding it feels like your living on a cruise ship, but without the swaying. You look out the window and you cannot see the road below but look directly out into the sea ,mountains. and of course Barmouth bridge.

Everyone who comes loves the views and the spacious apartment but no one yet has compared it to being on a ship - but I can see the point. One isn't really aware of the road - just the views and the changing light. As one guest put it " come and get drunk on the view" !

“Spacious flat with gorgeous views!”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This property comes highly recommended. The rooms are airy and spacious and (aside from one rear facing bedroom) provide beautiful views of Barmouth bridge and the beach. There were good opportunities for parking including one dedicated bay, and space for an extra car in a lay-by opposite if room was available. The flat is a very short walk from the beach and Barmouth itself. However be warned that there are several flights of stairs to access the property! Overall we had an excellent stay, and would gladly return another time.

“Nice flat , excellent views.”
Reviewed November 1, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed in the middle flat in April and this time we stayed in the top flat.

The accommodation is very comfortable with everything you could reasonably expect provided. Plenty of space and equipment for 6 people.

Only a short walk into the town where there is a good range of restaurants.

Parking is provided about 100m away but you may be able to park across the road.

The best thing about the place is the view at the front which is simply wonderful.

Overall this is a great place with one proviso.....you have to be good on stairs as there are quite a few to get you to the top.
