very comfortable
Have just returned from a week here. Found it to be very comfortable. Excellent wifi and a good choice of tv channels. The kitchen was well equipped with scales, decent knives; good quality pans and appliances. I did wonder why utensils were all metal when the frying pans were non stick? This is a spacious holiday home. The beds were comfortable and I thought pillows and duvets were good quality. The fire was great for when it was a little chilly at night. Plenty of hot water but the shower wasn't that great. Lovely views. Limited outdoor space but the decking area was very nice. Once we worked out where the garage was it was fine -we had a Qashqai. It is about 20 metres from property. The lock didn't work though so we had to put a stone in front to stop the doors blowing open. My only criticisms would be that it was a bit dusty - unfortunate given deep cleaning was supposed to happen because of Covid; the instructions for putting bins out were a bit contradictory - one clear messsage maybe. The biggest downside was the smell of damp. I had to buy a perfumed candle to mask it. If you opened the kitchen cupboards the smell really hit you. And there was at least one resident slug But location is great. The fish and chip shop is good. The premier shop on Beach Road was very good. The jury is out on the Tandoori restaurant - food not bad but service dire

Terrible place avoid !
I booked 2 nights for 4 people and 2 small dogs after reading reviews on TA and another site , the reviews have been taken off since we booked, I wonder why! As soon as you enter the house the smell hits you it's damp and musty smell is terrible. The house hadn?t been looked after or decorated for a good while. The standard of the house inside is the worst we've even stayed at after many years travelling around the world. The bed in the master bedroom is more like a torture rack with pillows as old as the house I would say. The bed linen was damp and the master bedroom smelt so strong of damp and a musty smell, we had to stay the night with the door open. The worst was at night around 2am when my son went into the kitchen to check on the dogs he slipped on a large slug on the floor, we then noticed there were about 10 slugs, on the work tops and the floor, and the thing that really upset us was in the dog water bowls as these can be a serious threat to the dogs health. We didn?t sleep all night in this terrible house and nothing to do with it being in the graveyard as that didn?t bother us. We booked out the next day and paid extra to stay at a lovely guest house in the village which felt like we had moved to the ritz after the night before. I don't write poor reviews only usually good ones but people need to be told the truth about this property to save them having a dreadful experience like we had, as this place is a serious health risk.

Moriah House
Fell in love with this cottage just looking at the photos when I booked it. I hoped it would live up to my expectations. On entering the property, with my partner, our daughter's age 7&9, and our dog, we were all amazed and lost for words! It was beautiful! Far more to offer inside than we had imagined. Lovely nautical theme running through and a good mixture of old and new interior features and furnishings. This property changes with the weather. On sunny days, it feels spacious and bright. The light pours through the large windows. In dull days, it feels snug and cosy in its dim light, especially with the fire lit. More than adequately kitted out kitchen. Inside, the living areas were nice and clean. This is a fantastic base for exploring the surrounding areas. We look forward to booking again. A couple of things for owner to address or consider though. None of these are written as a negative, just as areas that could improve someone's stay. As a dog owner, it would be nice, if possible, to have a small gate at the rear of the property. This would allow the door to outside to be open without worrying about the dog escaping. (We did make use of the fire guard as a tempory barrier!) My 9 year old scalded her back quite badly in the shower when the kitchen tap was turned on. ( warning for other guests) I had to remove one of the bed protectors in daughters room due to an unsightly stain on it. Lastly, a quick hoover under/behind beds needed. Despite this, and the lack of parking, (had to carry all our bits down the hill, but we were aware of this on booking) we had the most amazing stay! Thank you.

Gezellig huis met veel ruimte
Het gezellige huis is heel ruim en voorzien van alle gemakken. Is gunstig gelegen om snowdonia mountain en verschillende kastelen te bezoeken. Bij mooi weer is het lager gelegen strand te bezoeken. Het huis is hoog gelegen zodat je vanuit de woonkamer uitzicht op zee hebt . Omdat er een kerkhof voor de deur ligt is er geegezellige tuin om in te zitten slecht een klein verhoogd zitje van waaruit je Harlech castle kunt zien liggen. Een nadeel is het moeilijk parkeren in de smalle straat die naar beneden loopt.
