Lovely and welcoming with everything you could possibly need! Kitchen well equipped, we did 2/3 cooked meals during our stay and had no issues! Perfect location just few minutes walk from beach and also for the day trips we did! Adequate parking facilities and Wi-fi at the premises is also an added bonus! Lovely property would definitely recommend and will keep in mind for future holidays

We had very effective communication with clear instructions from the owner prior to our arrival. There were enough parking spaces for 4 big/5 small cars at the back of the building to avoid parking fees. All the 8 bedrooms had comfortable beds with clean bedding and storage but some of the bigger rooms had better storage facilities to hang our clothes and of course some of the bedrooms have amazing sea view. Again not every bedroom was with an ensuite facilities but there were plenty of toilets and showers at different levels which made it very convenient for everyone. We spent most of our time in the second floor big kitchen and dining area with a very beautiful sea view. The main kitchen had everything you needed to cook for a large group. There was a relaxing Jacuzzi and game room with a decent size pool table. The owner provide small quantity of everyday essentials which is a nice touch on your arrival. I must say there was not a lot to do in Rhyl but we were aware of that prior to our booking as we planned our days in the nearby beautiful places such as Llandudno, Conwy etc which are must to visit. There are plenty of walks, sites to see such as castles and things to do for all age group. We took the return Tramway to the Great Orme, Ffestiniog & Welsh Highland Railways which was coast to coast with very beautiful scenery which I recommend. Overall we would most certainly recommend Rathmines holiday home and our family will return again.
