“Best Self Catering ever stayed in!”

Coming from South Africa and touring Whales, we stayed for 7 nights after spending 5 nights in Bath rural area. The rates were very similar between the two establishments but the quality of accommodation all-over of Tyddyn Sydney Bach was a world apart from that experienced in Bath. A very friendly lady, Les Day, met us upon arrival and took time to explain everything we should know about our new home. Not only was the apartment, very neat and fully equipped with everything you should need during your stay, but we also found milk in the fridge, flowers on the table and a fruit-loaf for us to enjoy! The apartment was well stocked with washing machine an dishwasher powder, even the liquid for hand washing your dishes were supplied. Bedding and mattress were of very high quality and CLEAN. The bathroom spotless and comfortable, fitted with towel-warmer and high quality towels. The environment around the apartment is very neat and quiet allowing you to have a peaceful stay. Les and her husband were always available to supply help and information when necessary but always respecting our privacy. Rest assure, the photos of the apartment you see on internet is a true reflection of what can be expected, there will be no surprises. My only surprise was that it was rated 4 stars and not 5! The free Wifi/internet access was a real bonus. Les Day is a real asset for the hales hospitality industry. June 2013

“Fantastic cottage with everything that you need”

Really lovely cottage in fantastic garden. Very warm welcome. Les showed us round and explained how everything worked. The roses and bara brith were a lovely touch. All mod cons and in easy reach of several supermarkets. The cottage is well situated for all major tourist spots. We were also very lucky as the sun shone every day. One of our best holidays ever. Thanks Les and William. July 2013

“Wonderful Cottage with Wonderful Hosts”

I was working at Bangor University for 6 weeks and this proved to be the ideal rental accommodation. It was very well equipped, having everything I needed for my stay. My hosts, Les and William, were friendly and helpful and made sure I was completely comfortable. When I next visit Bangor I’ll again be staying at the cottage. May 2013

“A superb and relaxing week in Bangor”

We spent a superb week in the cottage in Bangor. Completely relaxing, trouble free, very helpful, and kind, friendly, clean, comfortable, quiet, well equipped, reasonably priced, knowlegable, helpful, joyful, stylish, well looked after, … and much more. Iwona and Janusz Badio from Kalisz, Poland April 2012

“Delightful, cosy cottage even in deepest winter”

The cottage is very cosy, comfortable and furnished to a high standard. It stands apart from the main house and you feel entirely private; yet nevertheless the owner, Les, is warm and welcoming, ready to answer any queries and to make sure you feel at home. There is a handy information pack which supplies lots of ideas on what to do and places to visit, surrounded as it is by beautful countryside, and towns rich in history. We had a great few days here visiting family and will certainly stay here again if the cottage is available. Highly recommended. December 2012

Comfortable and Charming Cottage

We have thoroughly enjoyed a few days in your most comfortable and charming cottage – which had everything that we required and more! Thank you so much for the Welsh cakes and the toppings and also thank you for the beautiful roses which were just perfect.
