Travel Blogs from Conwy
Woke to a grey and dreary morning. Carl served brekkie down in the pub. Black pudding is bloody awful. Went down onto the beach to check out the waterfall on the headland and then it was time to go out into the nasty weather for our drive to Conwy.
Misty, drizzly, pretty awful. This morning's drive would take us through Snowdonia and we …
... she was the one who suggested
Camelot 3000 and she was even talking about how she felt a bit naughty that she
was told we are only suppose to meet 6 weeks. But she always gives us tea and
we had cookies this week. I want to at the end of the semester to maybe buy her
flowers just to show my appreciation. We also briefly talked about topics, I

Yay! Rest of the day Emily and I finished the Arthurian bibliography, another three hours of fun (not really). This guy in the library kept laughing/coughing (still unsure) every minute while we were correcting the paper, it was HORRIBLE. Once we survived that and scanned the corrections to ...
... just because. We went back to the little graveyard island we had went to over Halloween, it was nice to actually see everything this time and just explore a bit. There were a lot of Margaret’s buried there, a bit creepy. Also just explored the little shops in Anglesey. Tuesday I had a bunch of meetings and then a lecture. Met with my professor to discuss my work on editing the Bibliography of the International Arthurian Society. Then had some tea with Emily ...

I could only show my professor a draft of my paper once, and it appears I certainly needed more help than that. Also being an American student the writing system here is different which I think hurt me. I ended up writing (in my opinion) the worst introduction I have ever written, having to do something ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Castlebank Hotel Conwy
Thanks Jo, et. al. for making my stay pleasant
I stayed here in September 2003. At that time, the hotel had been recently taken over by two couples who now run it.
The hotel was cozy. The staff, particularly, Jo, went out of their way to help make my stay comfortable. The breakfast is nice and vegetarian freindly. The rooms are comfortable and cozy. It's very close to the castle and Conwy itself is in a central place of North Wales. The whole experience was excellent. I'd certainly go back!
The staff were sooooo helpful that even after we'd left and gone to a much lesser standard of hotel in the hills of Llandudno, I rang back to ask if we could be taken back and Jo rang around good Llandudno B&Bs she knew of to help us find somewhere.
Great place and location
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at a well-run hotel in a great little castle town. The owners run the place themselves, and do a first-rate job of it, going out of their way to provide excellent service and assistance. Like most UK hotels, it gets a bit warm in summer without AC and the rooms are cozy. The town is lovely, with Conwy castle and the town walls an easy walk away. Conwy is nicely positioned for day trips to many sites in North Wales, including Snowdon and other castles.
Just back from a superb stay at the Castlebank Hotel. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in, the room was excellent which was made even better by the lovely views. Breakfast was a delight and the staff were very helpful, pleasant and extremely attentive. I would recommend a stay at this hotel to anyone.
Reviews are accurate
We booked the Castlebank for two nights based on reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. Rooms are large, the breakfast excellent in a very inviting room, and the hotel owners are friendly and helpful. The en-suite bathroom was modern with a good shower.
One can walk the town walls within a couple of minutes and visit the terrific castle. Parking is free. This is an ideal location for exploring North Wales.
A nice b&b style hotel
This hotel is well located and you can easily walk to all of the main attractions in Conwy. It was very clean and the owners were very nice.
The bed was a bit soft although the room was a generous size with a nice view of the castle walls.
Breakfast was great.
This is a really decent deal for the price.
We discovered the hotel totally by accident when parking the car nearby upon arriving in Conwy. It turned out to be a very lucky accident. The hotel is run professionally by young partners who strive to make one feel welcome by freindly inter-action with the guests. The accommodation provided was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Breakfast and dinner were excellent, particularly the latter. The cuisine was first class and presented within a fine ambience. Total enjoyment. Total relaxation. Total satisfaction. We will return!!
Wonderful place to stay!
We stayed here for only one night, but would highly recommend it anyone staying in Conwy. The owners/staff were very efficient, but also very pleasant and helpful. The location is within easy walking distance of the town and restaurants, but in a quiet location (next to the city walls and with a view of the castle). The rooms were fresh and comfortable and the breakfast was great. You could tell that the owners knew how to run a hotel (and it seemed like they enjoyed it too).
