We have been to Castle Cottage a few times since our last review. Trip Advisor doesn't allow us to keep going on about the same place, and we do have other hotels and restaurants to review. But to keep to the point with Castle Cottage... It has yet again been included in the Good Food Guide (2015) and we can... More

We stayed over the May Bank Holiday weekend in room 7 which was an executive family sized room. I booked last minute using their website. Harlech itself is a small Welsh village on the coast and is fairly easy to get to. Its main attraction is the 13th centuary castle ruin and also the big beach. There are a few... More

Hi Owen S Thank you for your very comprehensive review of castle cottage, Harlech and the area. We are not that hard to find - we are very near the castle ( been there since the 1200's and castle cottage since 1585!) The Nat park will not allow us any extra signage on the high street as we are in... More

Just returned from another excellent stay at Castle Cottage. We have been coming to this small and well run restaurant with rooms for many years and our recent visit was better than ever. My wife and I love our food and if you enjoy quality meals then you can't go wrong. We both enjoyed one of the best fillet steaks... More

We dined here on a busy Saturday night - the restaurant was full, and we took their last booking. Initially we were seated in the bar and provided with some canapés. These really were delicious and really made us look forward to our meal. We went for the 3 courses for £40 option - so on the breakdown of starter... More

Hi Joey G Not really a great review!!, In your breakdown of our prices you forgot to factor in the canapés, the home made bread, Welsh organic butter and the option of extra veg or salad if you wanted it - so the £40 (Including 20% of VAT tax) has to stretch further than the 3 courses. Re the 'gravy'... More

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!
