Well laid out and and great history. Great views from castle walls. Only a two minute walk from town and staff are really friendly. Easy to get around and plenty to see.

Most picturesque castle I've been to. Beautiful grounds and the sunshine made it all the better. Lots of staircases and alcoves to explore. More information on the history of each room would be nice

Like many of the great old castles in Wales this one is largely in ruins,so that a visit on a wet day,like it was when we were there, makes it a little unpleasant. Whilst it is accessible, much of it is up/down steep paths, so it can be difficult for anyone who is not fully able to climb. The remains... More

Shame it was a wet visit - maybe in the dry my review would be more positive - just felt it was a little over-priced for what was on offer.

We attended a gig on a typically warm, wet Welsh summer evening blistering sunshine and thunderous showers but it didn't dampen our spirits. welcoming staff and a fantastic setting for live music, the bar area was extraordinarily well organised and not as eye wateringly expensive as some venues however a few more toilets would've made for a more comfortable time...
