Reviews

Best of Wales is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with. Gareth was very welcoming and helpful as well as Louise who perfectly cleaned the house and opened its door when our keys were, by mistake, forgotten inside the house! The property was new, very clean, tidy and cosy. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped and bathrooms were provided with hand-wash. The furniture (beds & sofas) were new and comfortable. In general, It's stylish and spotless and we instantly felt relaxed and at home. Would definitely recommend it and book it again!
