Great service. Excellent stay yet again. Wonderfully situated near the town centre. Plenty of parking space.good selection for breakfast.friendly staff. Visiting family I have found the perfect spot at Ty Castell. Great value for money as I have previously stopped at the local Travelodge.

However, the look and feel of the place felt slightly old fashioned, though the room and... More

“My family and I, (parents, husband and daughter) enjoyed the entire loft (attic) floor which encompassed two rooms and a shared bathroom. We had the room to spread out, enjoy each other's company and retreat when we needed privacy. It was very quiet and we had plenty of hot water for the whole family.”
