We were hoping to stay at this B&B in August, 2017 for a number of reasons we had to change our plans. In the lead up to this decision being made we had some contact with the owners of the B&B who where more then hospitable and courteous in dealing with us. In the business of life we completely forgot...

I stayed here for one night but stupidly wrote my review on another site! That will teach me not to read things properly! Had a fab stay here, am a repeat visitor. As always the welcome was amazing, as was the room, spotlessly clean. Breakfast cooked by Steve was amazing. Paul was an amazing host as always. Can't wait til...

It is always great to see return guests, thank you for your kind comments. You will recall that spring is the best time to enjoy Ty Castell when the garden and riverbank come alive, but enough going on as you say in your review all year round. We look forward to your return.

This is a pleasant b&b in a quiet countryside location. Comfortable beds, clean, pleasant proprietors, decent breakfast, free wifi a bit erratic but ok. When we booked on booking.com, we received two emails of rules and conditions from Ty Castell, 1500 words and 548 words, and an A4 invoice. The emails required us to read the t’s and c’s (1,320...

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us, but disappointed with your other comments as a level 6 contributor as we feel that you were a little over exaggerating the point regarding terms and conditions.

Like an earlier reviewer we're really pleased that we didn't notice the rules and regulations about check in or we'd have missed this very pleasant stay, even then it was difficult to find as when you arrive in Nantgaredig you can't find a sign to the B&B, however your perseverance pays dividends as the house and hosts are just marvellous...

I am very glad that when I booked this I didn't realise that there was quite a narrow time gap for booking in (4-7pm) & that the fee was non refundable should you be late, otherwise I would not have booked (as we were travelling from the other end of the country), & would have missed a very pleasant stay....

We are pleased that your 5 hour journey from Norwich resulted in a pleasant stay and you enjoyed it. We can not apologise for the check in times as it has to be I'm afraid.

Spotlessly clean. The owner (sadly he is leaving soon) was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was superb. The garden leads down to the River Towy and is a lovely restful place to sit in the evening.

Thank you for your wonderful comments although it will be a long while before I leave, its the pull to the riverbank and having the opportunity to sit by the river and slow time down a bit to enjoy what this area has to offer. We hope that you return to see us.

We had a nice stay in this b&b, with an excellent cooked breakfast every morning. Steve was very friendly and helpful. The location is great right by the river with a lovely garden to sit in if the weather permits. The only reasons I haven't rated it higher was that the room wasn't very big and the bed was too...
