Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. The cottage is lovely. Very clean. You just have to be careful with the steps going down to the kitchen as they are of slate and quite steep. Always use the hand rail to help you. Also be aware that property is on three levels, can be a bit tricky for elderly or people with a walking disability, especially with the kitchen down in the basement. Otherwise it is a great place to stay, with easy access to the city of Bangor and the beautiful island of Angelsey. May 2012.
  2. A well appointed, clean and comfortable cottage conveniently situated in the country but only a short distance from shopping opportunities if you wanted including a large supermarket. Its location is as good as you’ll get for exploring Snowdonia. Nice touch by the housekeeper providing milk and biscuits. The sort of place you would happy to return to when in the area again. March 2012.
  3. Really liked our weekend at Pen Dinas which is in a lovely rural setting at the edge of Bangor. Clean & welcoming cottage ideal base for visiting Anglesey (only 10 minutes drive away) and the North Wales coast. Owners provided us with some very useful information about the local area & places to visit, not to mention the tea, coffee and biscuits provided for our arrival which were very welcome. All bed linen is provided but you do need to make sure you take your own hand/bath towels. The only down side was that we only had 2 days to enjoy it. May 2011.
