I'm a hotel snob, I openly admit it and when my mum booked me a BnB I had no idea what to expect. Well I was not disappointed, lovely spacious rooms, plenty of hot water and delicious freshly prepared breakfast. Will definitely be staying here again when visiting.

Good spot and comfortable too. Off street parking for the nice B&B. Walking distance to town and the castle. Full breakfast options, plenty of 'fuel' for a day of walking in Wales. Good value for a stop over in Caerphilly.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ty Castell. Not only was the location so central to the castle and downtown, it was so easy to travel by train / bus to Cardiff that we gave up our rental car and used public transit instead. We found Steve to be an extremely warm and accomodating host. He is... More

This is a proper B&B where we were treated like old friends.The facilities were spotless and the food was excellent.There really are Kingfishers on the river! If you are looking for a base that is handy for Aberglasney and the National Botanic Garden,you couldn't do better than stay here.

I booked the rooms for my family based on the reviews read. Steve is an excellent host, went out of his way to accommodate us, nothing was a problem. The rooms were clean and airy. The breakfast was excellent. Went out of his way for my two grandsons even had child plates. Ideally situated for visiting the area.

Stayed here last night as on a course in the area. I have to say this is a fantastic value B and B. It's clean, Steve very welcoming. Nice clean room, very quiet. Off road parking, near the centre. Infact I am going to suggest to my manager to recommend this to the contractors who come on the course.

“My family and I, (parents, husband and daughter) enjoyed the entire loft (attic) floor which encompassed two rooms and a shared bathroom. We had the room to spread out, enjoy each other's company and retreat when we needed privacy. It was very quiet and we had plenty of hot water for the whole family.”
