We decided to go come here for dinner on the last night of our holiday. We were 'greeted', if you can call it that, by a lady who was quite rude! In hindsight we wish we had left at that point! We had starters which were quite nice but then the mains arrived! The £22 steak which my husband asked... More

As other recent reviews will testify this was clearly a blip in what has been our very successful food service of late. We are a little confused however as no one has any recollection of any complaints on the evening in question. It is far more difficult to compensate after the fact. It would seem upon investigation that the Lasagne... More

I rarely bother to write reviews, but on this occasion I feel it is completely deserved. I had lunch and supper here at The Castle Hotel restaurant this week and the food was really very good. I hate paying for food out unless I am going to eat something as good, if not better than I could cook myself at... More

This is a beautiful old fashioned classically built Welsh Hotel. Our room, no.6, has been classified by them as one in their "best" category. Having bought a groupon deal we had specified which room we wanted from the pictures and it didn't disappoint in terms of size, facilities, decor etc. After a very long days walking we were very glad...

We stayed here for 3 nights as we were re visiting places we had been, when our boys were younger. The staff were lovely & friendly. Food was good, breakfast & dinner. Our bedroom was on the 3rd floor, we were upgraded as the hotel wasn't full. We were very pleased with it, clean, large & very comfortable. I was... More

The fat, beef dripping chips [passed us en route to another table, and i am glad I didnt choose them, as they were... More

Warm , cozy and friendly with gorgeous quaint bedrooms. Spent two nights here in January while travelling through Wales with my wife. Staff are very friendly, the food is very good and the ambiance is warm and inviting. One tip , ask for a bedroom in the back of the hotel as the main road is busy and quite noisy.

I had dinner on two nights in December, the first night was very nice not too much noise. The food was very interesting and appetising. On the second night the food was good but the noise was really excessive. We finished as soon as possible and retired to the bar to have a conversation.

It is always difficult to balance the atmosphere in an establishment such as this. Essentially The Castle is a Pub with Rooms & as such we get busy with people drinking & eating who are not staying in the Hotel. Some people enjoy a busy vibe others do not & we do our best to please. I am very pleased... More
