A stunning chapel!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed for 3 days in Oct and were very impressed indeed. The chapel is very tastefully decorated, has the wow factor with the open plan set up and period features. It was very clean and fully equipped and so spacious! It is is an ideal location to explore the area and I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. A very special place!

Lovely place to stay

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in September and were blessed with decent weather, although a little chilly outside the heating was more than adequate to keep us cozy inside. There was plenty of room for the 5 adults staying although the one bathroom was sometimes a problem we coped without any incidents.
The way the old woodwork from the Chapel has been incorporated into a lot of the features and also the glass windows is really beautiful, Dez did a fabulous job. The ceiling is spectacular and the several different lighting options were a nice touch.
The 3 bedrooms were all decent sizes and we had no problem with space during our weeks stay.
Dez and Amber were unobtrusive but whenever we did bump into them always gave advice for places to visit and asked if everything was ok and to let them know if we needed anything at all.
All in all a nice place to stay with friendly owners.
I can also thoroughly recommend the local pub The Glyntwrog Inn for a really good meal at a decent price.

GORGEOUS PROPERTY IN LOVELY LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Myself, family and parents stayed at this beautiful chapel conversion over the bank holiday weekend. It was private, immaculate and perfectly positioned to enable my 80 year old father fulfill his dream to climb snowdon (which he did).
The owners were extremely helpful and I would highly recommend the property
for those who may wonder (as we did) if there are other occupants in various apartments the answer is no it is sole occupancy of a very large classy building

Beautiful place, not the best owner

  • 2 out of 5
I have to tell you that this is a beautiful place to stay, it has great woodwork and a great place for a couple of families to spend some time. The location is not bad, less than 30 minute drive to most of the sites in the Snowdonia area. I would highly suggest this place if it wasn't for the owner Dez who was for less than accomidating.

We stayed in February and the weather was not the best, but it is Wales in the winter so you expect rain and wind, unfortunately the apartment was drafty because it is old and the wind could be felt and heard coming through the windows. When our friend called Dez, because it was cold in the apartment, and asked him to come over he came right away and did what he could to turn the heat up. Dez wasn't the friendliest about that interaction but it wasn't that big of a deal. Later that night we took the two sets of extra sheets out of the bathroom closet and used them on the young children to keep them warm and found a old pair of underwear in the sheets (persumably clean), again not that big of a deal. We enjoyed the rest of our stay and left after cleaning the place up and thought all was well until we received an email from Dez telling us he was going to be keeping 20 pounds of the deposit because we used the extra sheets (yes, the ones with the old pair of underwear in them). We disagreed with Dez that he should be able to hold deposit money back because we used extra sheets because it was cold in the apartment. Dez refused to return us any of our deposit unless we agreed to let him keep the 20 pounds (not like we had any choice). Not only was it the 20 pounds that made me angry it was the attitude that Dez used when telling us he was going to charge us more. See some of his emails below. Bottom line there are other nice places to stay in Wales.....I wouldn't stay here.

It's for All The Extra Bebing, you,ve used, which has incurred Extra
Laundry
Costs!!!! We are Only asking for about. £ 20!!!!! I Believe this to me
fair, Dez

Many Thanks for Your Thoughts!!!!! I shall await Your solicitors
instructions!! If you had requested Extra Bedding' it would Of Been Nice Of
you to Show some respect and Of Asked First!!!!!! We have Never had a
Problem Before with Guests Taking advantage!!!!!! Once I've received, Your
solicitors detail, I, shall Pass Our's on to Them! Yours Faithfully
D.B.

unique place to stay!

  • 4 out of 5
Capel Mawr has been converted to holiday accomodation with thought and hard work. The end result is spectacular,comfortable and well-appointed. Almost next door there is a shop selling everything you are likely to need and a couple of miles away there is a beautiful lake with spectacular views of the mountains.The owner,Dez, was helpful, friendly and considerate. A fine place to use as a base to explore the lovely surrounding countryside and mountains

The Chapel is located at the foot of Snowdon, 3 miles from the town of Llanberis and 3 miles from the historic town of Caernarfon and its fine example of an Edward 1st castle built in the 13th century. The castle houses the Regimental Museum of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, Wales's oldest regiment. Caernarfon also has a variety of good bistros, bars and nightclubs and an attractive marina (Victoria Dock) surrounded by galleries and entertainment. Llanberis is the starting point to ascend Snowdon by foot (for the fit) or steam rack and pinion railway to the acclaimed summit cafe at 3,560 feet. The coast and the famous Menai Straits are close by on the shores of which you will find Plas Menai - a world acclaimed RYA sailing school. Anglesey is just across the famous Menai Bridge. The local area is the ultimate destination for the active with sailing, cycling, walking, climbing, exploring or simply just relaxing in the clear mountain air which surrounds this fantastic location.
