“Needs some attention”

Glan Tywyn showed promise from the outset but actually failed to deliver on several levels.
It is a vast house in an idyllic country setting. Children had a fantastic time exploring property and making dens with sofas etc. for inclement weather there are plenty of fireplaces and radiators, a tumble dryer and power showers. One cannot fail to relax BUT....
The downstairs bedroom, although looking onto the enclosed garden, was dingy with a very uncomfortable mattress.
Some kitchen utensils were beyond useless. All frying pans needed replacing and the fridge /freezer need to double in size in order to accommodate the needs of large parties effectively.
When it rained, the lean to roof leaked in three places. Despite efforts to contain the drips, people were slipping on the wet tiles as the area was a thoroughfare. (Property Management informed by telephone.)
The patio area is fairly worn out; crazy paving is coming loose.
The lounge area is an awkward shape thus separating some people from the main "television corner".
Perhaps a little pedantic but expected a bit more...

Thank you for your comments. I feel I must respond to some of your statements. I could do nothing about the roof at the time. As all over the country, we had had some horrific storms,and as I explained Eric had had a fall, temporary repairs had been made but you must admit, it was a pretty bad storm on the day the roof leaked. The roof is now completely fixed. Re pans etc, thank you for letting me know. These have all been replaced. The down stairs bedroom, I feel is personal choice. Re the down stairs lounge, there is not a lot we can do about the structure. Sorry you were disappointed, thank you for giving me the chance to improve things.

“A Great Birthday Weekend, in a lovely house with amazing friends.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

House was great. Its really big and speacous so your not all on top of each other. Owner Jackie was great and around if you need her but also allowed you to get on and enjoy the house and its surroundings. Favourite feature has to be the big table on the patio where due to some fab weather we got to all sit around for a glass of wine or two.

Would recomend this house to anyone who wants to have a relaxed get away with friends and family but also wants the freedom to go off exploring. Enjoyed every minute of our stay and will be back. Also house was very dog friendly and he seemed to have just as good time as we did!!!

Thanks for an amazing birthday weekend in an amazing house.

“Experience life as lord of the mannor”
Reviewed October 10, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

What a fantastic venue for groups A wonderfully secluded spot with a magnificent Manor House very tastefully decorated and furnished. Very warm and cosy made even more so by two large living rooms with open fires just right for returning from an autumnal country walk. Huge kitchen dining area (be careful you could spend all of your time in this area neglecting the rest of the house) fitted out with everything you could want (however if there were anything missing I am sure your host Jackie would correct it immediately). The bedrooms were clean warm and luxurious I would have been delighted to sleep in any of them as it was we got the double at the rear of the house and none could have been more comfortable. Glantywyn is a little difficult to find so ask for directions not many signs I used a sat nav which got me close then had to ask (my fault). In all a special weekend made even better by the fortunate booking of Glantywyn Hall I would greatly recommend this property for a really relaxing and truly splendid break.

“Great place for large groups who want to stay in and cook”
Reviewed September 30, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

Glan Twywn Hall is very difficult to find in Bryngwran, the sav nat sends you to three different locations. You take the turning at the Old Post Office drive for about 2 miles pass the garage, you then approach a White cottage at a crossroads signed posted is the caravan camp site drive to a T junction and turn left down an bumpy old country track right to the end. The hall is situated on the right. The hall is remote, pub and shops are 10 minutes in Holyhead. No one in the village knew where the hall was, not even the pub. It's a great place is you want to have a big family celebration and if you intend to cook. When we arrived the property was cold and damp but this was due to a change of dates last minute, all properties of this age have damp this was a minor problem because Jackie rectified the situation immediately she even provided an electric blanket for our elderly parents. The hall was very warm and plenty of hot water. All 14 of us really enjoyed our stay in the Hall. Hopefully the next person will be able to find the hall as Jackie has promised to put up some signs
