Had a pleasant stay in this very well equipped house in the most convenient location of Conwy. Clean house, comfortable beds, a real home away from home. Will stay here again when visiting Conwy in the future. Thanks Andy.

“Great location but needed a good clean!”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Ideal for exploring Conwy. But very dusty, tiles missing in the bathroom, wallpaper coming off and a dodgy plug in the main bathroom. Sweet garden with views of the castle but overgrown with weeds. Kitchen well equipped but again needed a deep clean. A shame as owner seemed pleasant and efficient. I took some photos to prove the above. I work hard during the week and didn't have the energy to clean on arrival. A lick of paint and some much needed maintenance would make the world of difference to this sweet cottage :)

I do not intend to respond the majority of the comments made but would point out that only one half tile was missing in the bathroom which was behind the wash basin pedistal & could only be seen by sitting on the floor.I was awaiting a replacement tile & this has now been put in place
Also there is a claim that there was a "dodgy "plug in the bathroom
I am totally confused by this comment as we all know that in the UK plugs are not allowed in bathrooms
As to the comments regarding the double bed it is obvious that the reviewer is not used to sleeping in a quality bed with soft springs

“Dirty Smelly Cottage”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

don’t normally write bad reviews but this was awful!
We arrived at the cottage and were immediately disappointed with the condition of the property. The cottage was dirty, smelly and in places very neglected. I am aware that this is a dog friendly cottage but did not expect to be met with such a strong smell of unwashed animals and furniture. We regularly stay in dog friendly establishments but have never had this issue before.

The cottage was so unclean that I spent the first evening trying to get it cleaned which was hardly a brilliant start to our holiday. Unfortunately due to the level of un-cleanliness I was unable to get the cottage to a state we would be happy with and so we only stayed one night and left.

Apart from the cleanliness the other issues with the cottage were:
• Missing tiles in the bathroom
• Bathroom door will not close
• Toilet seat is dangerously loose
• Leaking pipes over the back door
• Access to the fridge is very poor

I admit that I did not bother contacting the owner before we left as I felt there was little he could or would be able to do i.e. deep clean the place, re-tile the bathroom, re-hang the fridge door etc. And as per the other person who complained I didn’t expect a good response I just wanted to get out of there!
(I did contact him on our return - response negative!)
Please note that this cottage is listed twice on TA one with 8 positive reviews and one with 2 reviews one positive the other not, I have informed TA

This lady booked for 4 days & stayed for 4 days
One day after returning home she contacted me stating that she wanted her money back & hinting that if I did not comply she would write a poor review
When asked why she did not contact me at once as is required as a term of the let she replied that she never got around to it
When I stated that surely if the cottage was as awful as she claimed she would have taken photographs to prove the point the reply was again that she never got around to it
I will let you draw your own conclusions

“Will go again”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A lovely little place, & very well equipped. Felt at home as soon as we walked in. Also a great location, close to the town centre. There were minor problems with some broken items, due to a previous occupant. Hopefully these should have been repaired by now.
Cannot really comment on VFM, as this is the 1st time we have stayed in S/C accommodation.
But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, & will stay here again.

Well equipped and short walk into the lovely town of Conwy. Was a bit concerned about parking before we went but soon found some were to park a minutes walk away so it wasn't an issue.

Lots of places to visit nearby. We were very lucky with weather so all had a great holiday.
