We stayed here whilst passing through on a cycling holiday. The accommodation is first class. It is modern clean and comfortable. The owners were most helpful and even allowed us to keep our bikes in their office overnight. I would certainly stay here again. It is located right next to the castle.

Stayed 1 night in the Caernarfon and it certainly lived up to all our expectations in respect of the comfort of the room, views etc. Also the quality of the food was great. Fantastic location. Would definitely recommend this place.

A fantastic location opposite the castle and the view of the valley from the lounge is stunning. The team work effectively together to deliver clean comfortable superior quality accommodation and food. We had evening meal and breakfast both of which were excellent. Jackie, Glyn and family were excellent hosts who clearly are passionate about what they do.

Equally breakfast the following morning was just as good,... More

We were a group enjoying the significant challenges of Royal St David's Golf Club (which is about half a mile away) and the following morning at Porthmadog Golf Club. We needed somewhere to stay and were recommended to Castle Cottage. We could not have found a more welcoming and comfortable place, just perfect for our needs. The rooms were well... More

We stayed two nights over Whitsun bank holiday. The room was spacious, comfortable and finished to a high standard. We received a warm welcome and very friendly hospitality throughout our visit. Pre dinner drinks with a panoramic view over the Snowdon range were a stunning surprise. Dinner was superb, a highlight meal of 2015. Breakfast included unrivalled home made muesli... More

Glyn and Jackie and their staff made me feel very welcome at Castle Cottage. My room was lovely - spacious, modern and very well maintained. Given that the hotel building is really old, 1500's, the whole hotel and restaurant are well designed, with all modern facilities. The food on both nights was lovely; tonight's rib-eye steak was cooked to perfection... More

Hi Judith J Thank you for your lovely review of us. Delighted that you enjoyed our accommodation and food. We upgrade and resigned the inside of castle cottage 11 years ago, so its great to still get fantastic reviews about the rooms - had a fantastic builder who achieved a very finish!

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.
