This lovely mid-terrace cottage is situated in Llanberis and can sleep five people in three bedrooms.

Tryfan is a mid-terrace cottage in Llanberis which sleeps five people in three bedrooms. The cottage has a king-size double, a double and a single bedroom, along with a bathroom upstairs. Downstairs is a kitchen with dining area, and a sitting room with a woodburning stove.

Outside is a small enclosed rear patio with a table and two chairs and parking can be found on the roadside, on a first come, first served basis. Tryfan is perfectly placed for tackling Snowdon, whether walking up one of the many paths, or taking the railway to the summit, as well as exploring the coast and the rest of North Wales.

Unclean, poor state of repair, poor service
Whilst the cottage is well located and the beds are comfortable, the house was left unclean and in a poor state of repair to the point of being potentially dangerous. Issues: - Surfaces dirty and greasy, crumbs on counter top, fridge etc, rotten and out of date food in the fridge and cupboards. - Bathroom grubby and cobwebby. In the middle of a pandemic 1 small old piece of bar soap left in the bathroom, with someone's public hair attached. - Loo and sink leaking over floor from base/piping, and loo also not attached to the wall so it lurches badly when you sit on it. - Kettle leaks. Oven tray visibly dirty and needed thorough cleaning before use. - Outside kitchen/bathroom other rooms looked in a better state, but finding, in the summer, Christmas decorations and nuts (hazard for children and nut allergic) lying under the coffee table etc doesn't exactly suggest it has been cleaned properly.

Very comfortable and well placed.
This is a lovely cottage located within the village so very close to all amenities and the foot of Snowdon is practically on your doorstep. A warm welcome with milk and Welsh cakes waiting in the fridge. Cannot fault the accomodation itself at all but the deck is so small it is unusable and if no benefit if you are a pet owner. However lots of walks for the hounds close by. Parking could also be an issue but we found a spot close by and did not have to use the car throughout our stay. I would recommend though and look forward to using again next time I need a Snowdon base.

Good place to walk from
We booked this cottage as we wanted to stay close to Llanberis. 5 mins walk and you are on the main street. Good selection of shops and places to eat. The main room is spacious and the bedrooms aren't a bad size. There are 3 bedrooms with two having double beds and then a single in the third. Maybe an issue if you had children. The kitchen is fairly well stocked. There was enough tea, coffee and milk cups to make a cuppa when you arrive. The decking area would be a squeeze if you wanted to use it. The heating seems to be a bit erratic and we just resorted to turning it on and off when required instead of leaving it on automatic which the owners requested. The bathroom is in need of a good scrub and the bath panel needs replacing. You will need to take basics such as toilet roll, kitchen roll, bin bags and washing up liquid. We received 1 toilet roll, 1 bin bag and 1 wash cloth as a welcome pack. Wasn't happy to find left over food in the freezer, bottles of dilute pop and some cereal when we arrived. I feel that the owners should have removed these but maybe some people don't have an issue with this.

Excellent accommodation and location
Could not fault either the accommodation or the location. With the added benefit of allowing dogs we had an excellent holiday.
