Apartment spotless and had everything you could need! Location was perfect! Although it was on the main street on Conwy, there was no noise at all. Would definitely recommend and will be returning!

This apartment was a really good place to stay. It's situated in the centre of town - just a few hundreds of yards from the seafront and weatherspoons for breakfast. Parking was not a problem as spaces always appeared outside after about 7pm. The apartment was well fitted out including washing machine and kitchen equipment. Although its interior was not decorated to the highest possible specification, it was very clean and tidy and I definitely recommend it.
