A beautiful, spacious and clean property to stay in. The chapel is comfortable, warm and unique. The owner was welcoming and well informed about where to visit. It will be hard to find such an impressive property to rent for future holidays.
Brilliant stay from start to finish!! couldn't fault this place, incredible!!! so close to shops and driving distance to many lovely seaside towns, beautiful inside and out, couldnt fault this place, will be back!
As I drove up to the property I was expecting to see the beautiful structure that is shown in the pictures, what I actually got was a structure surrounded by scaffolding. On entering the property it was clean and tidy, but the promise of using an american fridge did not happen as it was not working, there is a medium sized fridge freezer tucked away on the left of the kitchen area looking on from the doorway in, some of the sockets did not look secure, as they where loose or had gaps at the back. The views where not there due to the scaffolding. I felt very let down and disapointed. I rang sykes the following day and they moved me to another holiday accomadation. The owner had been contacted and he offered me a miniscule reduction for the lose of the view, I felt insulted by the offer. The property I went on to was much better.
Three friends and I have just returned from a weeks' holiday at this stunning apartment. Yes it is an old building, and, in places, the walls are not as smooth as a modern building, but this is only to be expected.... yes, there is a door that probably does link the apartment to the owners ' own property, but at the top of the stairs is your own front door, which is secured with your own key. We had a lovely, relaxed week, visiting Llanberis, Llandudno, Betws-y-Coed, Electric Mountain and Anglesey. We found the apartment to be well furnished and had all that you could want or need for a comfortable holiday, in a very spacious apartment. We would highly recommend this apartment, but maybe not for young families, as there is no outside space for children to play...
Myself and two friends booked this cottage for the entire of Christmas. The building is beautiful and has tons of character, which original wood work. We cooked Christmas dinner and sat at a beautiful table over looking original windows.
Dez, the property owner lives in the outhouse away from the property and we had the entire property to ourselves the entire stay. He is very friendly and you hardly know he's there. He talked about renovation of the building and that he's kept as much of the original features as possible.
The whole stay was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone who likes character and a beautiful converted building.
This is a fairly long story but I'll try and keep it as short as I can. Firstly this holiday let has it's own grave yard, if this doesn't bother you, try this. As you walk through the front door, to the left is a secret door that leads to the owners section of the building. It doesn't look like a door and cannot be locked from the accomodation side. The owner can and does come and go as he pleases. We didn't realise it was a door until we had to involve the police. Also, as I experienced first hand, the owner leaves the premises unoccupied with candles burning in his half of the building. Not very safety conscious!! My son booked this let in rather a hurry and inadvertantly booked for 4 adults and 2 children, there was infact 6 adults and 2 infants one aged 2 years & one aged 10months. This shouldn't have made any difference so we weren't unduely worried. However on the Tuesday the owner decided this was over booked. My son offered to pay more, but on return from a day out at 7pm in the evening on the Wednesday the owner had entered the accomodation internally and wedged something in the key hole locking us out. He wouldn't answer his phone. Sykes cottages informed my son that the owner would open the door in the morning and may give access to the belongings locked inside. This included nappies and baby food. What kind of person throws families with infants out into the night without warning?? The police were called who eventually got us into the building. This was 8.30 in the evening. It cost us in total another £645 for hotel accomodation(and we were lucky to find this) and our holiday cut short by 1 night. He has refused to give any refund. Avoid.
Totally unreasonable landlord which led to events involving the police. He has a discreet internal door from his hidden residence underneath directly into your living area. He likes to let himself in when you're not home as we discovered. The place looks lovely and it is but stay somewhere else, it's not worth the hassle.
