Fantastic Fry Up
Best Cooked breakfast I have every had. Bacon was suculant thick and crispy, eggs had big deep yellow yolks. Everything cooked to perfection, hot, and fast to arrive.
Service at the hotal is second to none. Coffee topped up, friendly, helpful. A booking was made at a local Italian restaurant-Franco's, which is great. Some local walks were recommended to us.
The hotel is ideally situated, very close to town yet in a quiet spot, in an elevated position with superb views of the bay. Ample safe off road free parking is provided in front of the hotel.
The hotel is very well appointed, clean, very comfortable with lovely dining rooms and lounges. The bedrooms are very comfortable with nice clean white bedding.
I would strongly recommend a stay here, book early as it is very popular.
Took the family to the Castle Hotel for the weekend to celebrate a 70th birthday. The hotel was lovely and beautifully decorated. The staff were very good, particularly in the restaurant. The food was fabulous, we ate in the restaurant and the bar and could not fault anything. Our two children were made very welcome, great kids meals, ample sized family room. Conwy is very pretty, plenty to do for the weekend, kids loved the castle and walls. Pick this hotel for an extra special break with a little luxury thrown in.
Lovely hotel, staff and food
Just returned from a night at the castle hotel in conwy North Wales. 2 car parks enough for 30 cars and its free. We were accomodated in swit wynn, it has a four poster bed once mooted that King Charles the 1st slept in, very nice room with sofa, chair, dressing table, trouser press, lovely furnishings, small flat screen TV, a Bose music system and a very nice en-suite bathroom. The hotel is situated within the castle walls. We arrived to champagne, choclates and flowers, very nice to. We ate in the hotel restaurant called the Shakespeare were the food is excellent and the staff are fantastic they cant do enough for you. Once leaving after dinner I was presented with a red rose and choclates again (atkins diet beckening!) very well run and ordered hotel, very homely and quiet. I would definately stay there again, hope this review helps and the photos.
It seems a house more than a Hotel...
A very nice litlle Hotel just in the Conwy main street,near the Castle and the harbour! An ancient building with a familiar ambience and some lovely antiques!! Our room was very large and clean. Nice restaurant with quality food and attentive staff. Conwy is beautifull!! We will return to Wales...
As member of a Swiss group, visiting gardens in North Wales, we stayed a whole week in this fabulous hotel. My wife and myself enjoyed the stay very much: the exciting little town, the very nice room (Nr 202), the very good food in the Shakespeare restaurant, and especially the friendlyness and courteousness of all personnel in this hotel! We will come again! Thank you all for unforgettable days!
My wife and I spent a night in the best suite in the hotel - Swit Caer Rhun - in April. At over £200 for B&B for two it isn't cheap but they have put thousands into refurbishing just this room, not mention the rest of the hotel.
Very confortable with all the little touches and massive jacusi (is that how you spell it) bath that you expect at this price. Right in the centre of the walled city but with (bless them) parking at no extra charge. Nice restaurant too.
Only down side was the lack of a lift which was a bit hard on my ageing legs!
Fab Sunday Lunch
Have stayed here many times and always found hotel excellent - cleanliness, helpful staff and excellent restaurant - especially the Sunday roast beef lunch (best to book). Located in the heart of Conwy updating ongoing and parking over the road in car park or at rear of hotel.
The Hotel is clean, comfortable and very nice. The restaurant is excellent and we were very impressed with the variety of choice and the overall value for such a lovely meal. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We will be revisiting this hotel.
Great hotel in a great location
The staff was friendly, the room was comfortable, and the restaurant was great. The hotel was in the center of everything, and the entire city was within walking distance. Conwy is a great place to visit. I just wish we could have stayed longer!!! The only drawback was they didn't have many non-smoking rooms and we were a bit bothered by the smoke smell. Parking was a bit of a problem, too, but that is the case anywhere within the city walls. Overall, a nice experience. I would definitely stay there again.
Fabulous stay at the Castle. Fantastic restaurant.
We stayed at the Castle Hotel for two nights in early May 2004. Our room, Y Castell Swit had a view of Conwy Castle which was very nice as this relic is lighted until late evening. The room was comfortable, bright, nicely furnished and clean. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Of Note: The hotel's restaurant "Shakespeare's" is exceptional. We enjoyed full breakfasts and dinners for both days. From our first bite it was obvious there is a culinary master at work. Hands down some of the tastiest, freshest gourmet cooking we have enjoyed in our travels. The wait staff in the restaurant was attentive and courteous. Menu prices were reasonable. Highly recommended.

We traveled to Wales today. It is more mountainous here but equally as beautiful as England. There is so much history here! We spent a part of the morning touring a castle while still in England and had what they refer to as cream tea in the garden there. Then we traveled on to the Bodnant Botanical Gardens and strolled through tons of hydrangeas, …
Ok, so I have just had my last supper with the family and have now finished packing. Had to swap bags as the original was to small. My bag weighs in at 13kg so I still am allowed another 10kgs in weight! Worried now that I've forgotten something but I don't think I have. Few last minute jobs to do tomorrow that the kids have given then heading for the airport at 15.30hrs. At last it here after all the hard ...
... a conversation in Welsh and speak English as well. Very unusual. The people and the countryside here are wonderful. The landscape is lovely forested mountains with stone walled cottages and villages scattered along the way, and the rugged Atlantic coast appearing at times.
... we drove west along the Welsh North Coast through Pestatyn, Rhyl, Aberdele, Betwys-y-coed, Penhryn and Llundudno.Llundudno is situated on the peninsular on the most North-Eastern part of Wales. It is a huge resort town with rows and rows of white and cream hotels and B&Bs. Sue said it was like the Gold Coast but with Victorian architecture.About 12 miles ...
