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!
Loved it, will definitely 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.
A young newly-married couple, this was the perfect retreat.
Incredibly helpful and friendly staff. Gave us information on local places of attraction. Never made us feel like we were asking too much.
Room was lovely and cosy. View was wonderful. Whole place very homely.
It is run by four young professionals who give the place a wonderful relaxing feel. For example, run by an old couple, you may feel like you're not in entirely capable nor competent hands but with the Castlebank, you get a more traditional building with professional service.
Excellent. Thank you for your help Jo, you're an angel!
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).

I'm no stranger to Betws-y-coed having visited many times as a child but its never stops being magical. This is especially true at night when the day trippers leave. As we walked into town through the forest, the darkness of the night sky enveloped us, untamed by the modern scourge of streetlights the stars glistened.

So today was the last day and the time to fly home. A nice late(ish) start to the day began with our (rough) ride to JFK to check on for our flight home only to find that it had been delayed for an hour and a half! After sorting out the connecting flight we headed through to the gate to wait... On board the plane Lufthansa were clearly trying to make up for the delay by feeding us with alcohol, Matt managed to grab three beers as well as ...

We then drove out to Bodnant Garden which is a National Trust 80 acre property of garden! Amazing gardens which are split into two parts, the terraced gardens and the informal lawns and we spent at least 2-3 hours there just walking around and the sun came out for a short time! They have 24 fulltime gardeners and 40 volunteers.
Another great day!
