Really not sure why the only reviews here are for Christmas stays, it's clearly a popular house and will be good for a holiday at any time of year. Five of us stayed for Christmas, no problem at all cooking Christmas dinner in the well equipped kitchen! I now want a double oven myself. The two cosy living rooms make this a very comfortable house for everyone to spread out, both downstairs rooms have living flame gas fires which are perfect for winter evenings (there is central heating too). The views from the front of the house are great, I could sit in bed and see right across the valley to the hills on the other side. From the living room, you have a good view of the harbour. Attentive and helpful owners who sent lots of great information in advance and even phoned just to check everything was ok. It's unusual to have that level of attention in a holiday let, I think. We were met by a bottle of champagne and welsh cakes on arrival. The parking at the back of the house is tight for an estate car but still doable and there was plenty of free parking nearby. In terms of pubs, I'd recommend The Australia which you can see from the house and has Purple Moose Brewery beers. Good to see Porthmadog is a proper town with real people living there, unlike some Cornish villages for example which have been taken over by second homes. I would definitely stay here again.
