We chose to pay a little extra for a bay window and wow! we were so glad we did! Our room was first floor at the front of the hotel. The hotel is positioned in the middle of the bay at Criccieth, so our bay window gave us views of the entire bay including Criccieth Castle. The hotel was close... More

I regret that we were so disappointed - despite being grateful for the owner ( Nick? ) kindly contacting us a couple of hours after we left to let us know that we has left some clothes on our room. Our main gripe... More

The Caerwylan Hotel was a very nice place to stay for our short break in August 2014 on the Nefyn Peninsula. Our room was a King Size overlooking the sea and the view was great. We had an evening meal there and it was of a good standard, although perhaps a little pricey for what was really just a "carvery".... More

I have just made a return visit to “The Caerwylan”. This is now by far my first choice place to stay in Criccieth. Great view of the seafront, friendly staff, very quickly served breakfast. The wifi worked much better in the guest lounge than my room but the view from the room more than made up for that and it... More

We are so pleased that we chose this delightful hotel...more like a 4 star in a prime location overlooking the beach yet a short stroll from the town. Beautiful room, lovely interiors and very comfortable. Great service. The breakfast was truly outstanding. We did not sample the food in the restaurant but if the food is as good as the... More
