Travel Blogs from Conwy
I can't actually remember the last time I blogged, and I don't have the internet right now, so I can't check *g* So I'll just leave a little gap here, and fill that bit in when I can check and find out what I've missed *G*

Right, so I missed quite a bit *G*
Last time I posted, we were still in …
I've completely fallen in love with Northern Wales. Sheep, the sea, craggy cliffs, the scars of slate mining giving character and memory to the landscape. Conwy, the small town where we are staying, is beyond charming. A small fishing village, complete with its own small castle (which I did not visit) and probably the nicest hotel we've stayed at …
... for dessert! The company and conversation was stimulating – can’t go wrong with a group of medievalists at the dinner table talking about the theme of the conference ‘death and horror’. As for the actual conference, still a smaller crowd than we were expecting but overall a good turnout. Each of the papers were absolutely amazing and generated much discussion. Had papers on ‘ghost stories’, ...
... listened to the BBC symphony orchestra playing on the esplanade along the beach. Have included pics of wooden statues of characters from Alice in Wonderland. The real Alice holidayed here in the late 19th century as did Lewis Carroll who based the stories on her and then told them to her and her sisters. Off to Ireland on the 7.30 ferry so early start ...
... wild goats a ski lift, long walks and great views. This afternoon we drove across some of the most beautiful and in places rugged countryside we have seen to Port Meirion in the Snowdonia national park. Tomorrow off to the Snowden railway which takes us to the 1000m summit. Forecast looking ok for good ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Castle Hotel Conwy
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.
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.
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.
