We first stayed at Castle Cottage in 2005, and now it's April 2013, we have lost count of how many times we have visited and Castle Cottage seems to be better each time. It's no wonder that Glyn (the owner/chef) has won so many awards, including being in the top 100 restaurants in the UK. The food is amazing. Starting...

I have lost count of how many times we have stayed at Castle Cottage since our first visit (honeymoon, November 1992), but we have spent at least a couple of nights there most years since then (and nearly as many hot dinners). Why keep coming back? The friendly welcome, and the fact that Glyn and Jacqui always seem to have...

This is the third time we've had the pleasure of staying here, and certainly won't be the last. The service from all staff is first class, effective without being over the top. A great sign of this is that you notice that things have happened - but you don't see them happening. The balance on the service is just right....

Just returned from a golfing trip in North Wales which included a night stopover in Harlech. Stayed in a fantastic hotel and restaurant only five minutes from Royal St Davids GC.

This was our second visit to Castle Cottage and it was again a great success (even in the pouring rain). We were shown to our room by Glyn who pointed out the heating system and showed us how to turn it up if we would like the room warmer. I would much prefer this to entering an air-less, and too...

We decided to stay at The Castle Cottage for my wife’s birthday as we had stayed there before and had a fantastic time. Often when we revisit a hotel or restaurant we are disappointed, maybe because of high expectations but second time round it was even better than the first. The Castle Cottage is much more than a hotel with...

Castle Cottage exceeded my expectations, despite having already seen many good reviews here before visiting. Indeed, I only noticed one poor review, where someone suggested it is expensive, so I felt compelled to provide an alternative view. Yes, it costs rather more than standard B&B, but then it provides so much more. I reckon the same quality in any UK...
