The location was perfect for trains and buses and the neighbours were friendly would definitely like to stay again and our grandchildren didn't want to leave. Definitely recommend the property and location.

The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and the kitchen was well equipped for our stay. The owners are really pleasant and were there to greet us and show us around. We'd be happy to stay here again if returning to Llandudno.
