We (2 of us) were looking for a place to eat on a Sunday evening (following the Harlech Triathlon!) and decided to book this restaurant although the cost for 2 courses was more than we had planned to spend. We decided to get one starter between us, one pudding to share and each a main meal. We made the correct... More

Travelled from Warwick to spend valentines night with husband and friends at Castle Cottage. The food was outstanding, the minute we arrived customer service excellent. The starter blew us away and then all the other courses and the wine was outstanding. I highly recommend a visit, been travelling from Warwick for the last 11 years to eat at castle cottage... More

We stayed here for two nights and can highly recommend the accommodation, the breakfasts and the brilliant dinners. Our room was on the top floor so we looked out over mountains and the sea. We had dinner both nights of our stay. If only we lived nearer we would be regular visitors to the restaurant!

Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by a gentlemen who took our bags from us and showed us to our room (Room 2). The room itself was lovely. Very cosy, clean and tidy.

We were kindly upgraded to room 7 - the largest (many thanks to Glyn & Jacqueline!), but we sneaked a peek at the other empty rooms and can report that they are all finished to a very high standard indeed.

The room was comfortable, if rather dark, yet modern; but expensively priced at 150 pounds sterling per night. (A much bigger and more elegant room in Bath, England cost us the same price.) In the morning we woke up early and went into the restaurant for breakfast. The restaurant was empty, but the owner's wife directed us to a table... More
