Can’t explain how amazing the place is. It was just the perfect place for my fiancé and I to stay for a week. Cozy warm with plenty to do in the area.
Will definitely go back for sure!
We had a very comfortable and most enjoyable three night break at Milk Wood.
The facilities and cabin were excellent and extremely clean throughout. The kitchen was so well equipped that it put most household kitchens to shame. There was a brand new cooker and washer, dryer and dishwasher.
The whole cabin is spacious and the log burner was an added bonus.
The bedrooms have lots of storage and the beds comfortable.
The person who has reviewed this as a one star before this review is frankly the most stupid person ever.
How on earth would anyone know how to work appliances, tv, sauna, hot tub etc without instructions. Unfortunately some people are stupid enough to put nappies etc in the toilet and this will lead to huge repair costs for the owner as well as the impact on other guests whose holidays would have to be cancelled while the problem is sorted.
There were no bad smells and the owner never intruded on our space.
So as this idiot has titled his review ‘please read’ then yes, read all the other excellent ones and have a great holiday.
Many thanks Phil.
I would to start on a positive as the rest of this is unfortunately going to be negative. The cabin is situated in the most beautiful location with stunning scenery. The facilities which are of use such as the hot tub and sauna are fantastic.
However, on the hot tub rules and regulations state you can only use it at certain hours. The hot tub is checked every day by the owner who turned up within in the hours of allowed use. The owner should of been more considerate and informative of what time he would be arriving so we wasn't put in an awkward situation.
The decor is 20 years out of date and curtains and coven covered in dust and cobwebs. There is damp smells coming from sauna and rear door area.
The rules and regulations are beyond a joke. If you don't follow them strictly, you will lose the deposit you have paid in advance. Rules include things like 'don't put nappies or condoms down the toilet' this is a sign which you are greeted with infront of the toilet. That is just one of the rules so you can imagine some of the others which are also stuck around the cabin.
Despite the issues this just needs ripping out, cleaned and redecorating and would be the perfect retreat. Also, if the owner didn't treat the guests like employees or servants.
We have just returned from a 3 night break here and we absolutely loved it.
The lodge was immaculately clean and tidy and was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay.
The hot tub was very welcome after our Snowdon climb, and it was beautifully clean.
We really loved it here and there really is nothing to criticise in any way. The only thing that would improve it for me is if there was a better shower :-)
This has been my second visit to Milkwood Lodge and we had a lovely stay. it was relaxing, clean and welcoming. Can't wait to return again one day!
The cabin was excellent, hot tub was wonderfull ! Sauna we could live without but never the less a luxury! Local walks were fab! especially the Torrent walk so close and so memorable! Dolgelleau was very quaint! We can recommend the butchers and if you like a pint! The Cross Keys had a very welcoming Landlord & dogs were welcome! as were most places we visited!
Our only Critism's would be a sign at the top of the road would have been ideal as it is not that obvious where the lodges are! Despite sat nav! Also the shower lacked an acceptable power, We thought that this day & age the pressure could be better? and lastly the frying pans had been abused so could do with replacements! but on the whole excellent!
The first thing that greeted us was the cleanliness of the property. It is well maintained and there was tea, coffee, sugar, cake, milk and even ice cubes awaiting us in the kitchen. Ice cubes were in the freezer obviously. It is a spacious lodge and you could quite easily spend your entire break there if you wanted. The sauna and hot tub made the stay and we all enjoyed these immensely. It was quiet and very relaxing, sitting in the hot tub, listening to the birds singing was amazing. The hot tub is situated at the back and you are not overlooked in any way. The kitchen had everything you needed, apart from your food, but it was like my kitchen at home.
We will be returning in the future, this is an amazing place for a well earned break. We cannot rate this highly enough. Stunning.
