We have a holiday home in the village of Harlech and visit frequently. We try to eat here each visit as it is a really lovely treat. Superb food, lovely setting. Well worth the (pricy) outlay. Service can sometimes be a little cold, but we don't let that spoil our meal. NB - we have never booked or slept in... More

Hi Dj_akademix Thank you for your fabulous review of us. Glad you enjoyed the super food; sorry about being a bit pricey, but running a restaurant with room is not a cheap business. Also sorry about the cold service, but we make a point of not being in your face, always asking if you are Ok etc etc. I hate... More

We stayed at the restaurant ahead of the 2012 Harlech Triathlon, it was my sole purpose for travelling. It was not my first choice as £150 for room only is quite expensive but everywhere else was booked.

My wife and I booked a short stay just before Easter, pretty much a last minute impulse. We found the Castle Cottage to be as good as the web-site (Welsh Rarebits) suggested.
