"A good base"

This is in a an ideal location to explore throughout North Wales. We found the place to be slightly cramped especially in the kitchen as we included three adults in our party. The facilities were plen… More

We thank you for your review ,we received your note about the potato peeler and we would have instructed our housekeeper to bring a new one immediately had we known as we were on holiday ourselves during your stay.The kitchen is as shown in the photo gallery and we will certainly endeavour to eliminate the rare occurance of a cobweb or dust in the property.Thank you/Diolch yn fawr

"A relaxing week"

Just back from a week away in Ruthin. The town was 5 minutes walk from the apartment.It provided all that we needed, plenty of shops,pubs, restaurants and takeaways. Disappointed with the Craft Centre… More

We thank these guests for a review so soon after departure !we take on board your comments about the relaxing nature of our new balcony ,we have since added a new wicker easy chair ,the dinning seats are for an outside dinning experience however we would not object to guests taking chairs from the inside on to the balcony if they so wish.The design of the interior lounge/bedroom allows for the bedroom to integrate if required for occupants of the double bed to view the large screen tv.this allows for 3 persons or children to have privacy in the second bedroom .we believe the design caters for many family combinations as we have 2 bathrooms /toilet to serve the 2 sleeping areas separately.i can imagine that any inside area appears dark having spent hours on the balcony on a really bright sunny week.

"Great value, great location"

Ruthin is small but very well featured. It is marvellously located for great walking and cycling which is precisely what we did, superb views everywhere.There were enough pubs, tea rooms and restaurants to not repeat them. On the one wet day we had we drove for less than an hour to reach one of the many 'touristy' places nearby.
A super little town in a fantastic location for outdoor people.

Hi Thank you for the review ! really glad about your comments you have identified exactly what we feel we have to offer.we have noted your comments about the mattress and will soon be upgrading many thanks /Diolch yn fawr

"A wonderful gem of an apartment"

We loved the apartment. It was cosy, and very well equipped and laid out, making excellent use of available space. The setting was idyllic, overlooking a lake with an island, and at this time of year, full of baby ducklings, moorhens, and cygnets with their parents. Beyond the lake was a lovely park, which was well used. We stayed in Ruthin to do part of the Offa's Dyke walk, but we would happily return, to stay in the area and explore.

Thank you for your kind comments .We will be installing another casserole dish a.s.a.p[we were not aware it had gone]we are hoping to welcome keen walkers as yourselves to this wonderful part of the country .Diolch yn fawr !

"Cosy, clean and comfortable"

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the apartment. Lovely town of Ruthin short walk away with some nice independent shops and farmers market on Saturday. Park, tennis courts and driving range all very close. Playstation very useful for teenagers. Ducks swimming past the balcony window daily. Lovely and relaxing place to stay. Would happily return. Made very welcome by owners.

we thank you for your review and look forward to seeing you again in the future
