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).

... perhaps I should beat a hasty retreat to an alternative route. That is the first time in all my years of walking that I have had a problem with a bull and it was a bit scary.
Since arriving in Wales I have stayed in three sites, the first was a bit disappointing for though it was set in lovely rolling countryside, there were few areas nearby where I could go walking and it also rained every day. I found the nearby town of Corwen pleasant ...
... Great Orme. There is a cable car that runs up to the summit from Llandudno which was built in 1902, Laura took that down to town and Val and I walked back, mostly along the route of the tramway. When we got back down we had coffee and cake and then met Laura back at the hotel. Our friends from our Chamonix Alps hike two years ago, Gwyn and Pat Evans picked us up at our B&B at 7 pm and drove us to a nice restaurant in Conwy, under the old 14th century walls. I had three ...
... br> 6. Despite bold black letters on stark white background saying, "Smoking Kills"- there are plenty in England who don't believe it.
7. The English are very helpful (or have been so far)!
8. Ice and carbonation in your soft drinks is more the exception than the rule.

We decided to climb Mount Snowdon today, which is the highest mountain in Wales. Of course, the forecast was for the worst weather of the week. To do this, we had to leave early, so Val and I had breakfast at 7:00 am. Joyce (our B&B hostess) made a special effort to get us on our way. Laura stayed in bed and had the day to herself in town, which as it turned out was a really good thing. We caught a bus to Betwys y Coed, and then the Sherpa bus to Pen ...
... town, developed when the railway came through in the late 1800's. The buildings are all stone with slate roofs and most say 1890, or a year close to that, on the central gable. The town has obviously seen better days. It is quite popular with the English, particularly the elderly, but there are very few foreigners seen here. We had a nice fish and chips dinner on the Main Street, and then walked a bit along the water. The weather is looking iffy for the next few ...
