This apartment is fantastically situated facing the harbour and has been recently done up to a high standard. It's a quirky layout which we loved. It's in a great location to explore North West Wales.

The owners have provided all you could wish for - and more - to ensure that you have a good stay. It is very clean and comfortable, and we slept very well. Nearby are 2 local pubs serving good food (and beer) and an excellent chippy if, like us, you prefer not to cook on holiday. We would have no hesitation in recommending the property and hope to return sometime.
