Researched all dog friendly pubs in Anglesey, The Trecastell was on our hit list as people had said it had a lovely view. We had not booked but knew they served food all day, it was early afternoon, I quickly popped in to double check if they were serving food and if they were dog friendly. I was greeted by... More

Having visited here twice and leaving reviews on both occasions I am curious why it has taken four months to reply to my review by the management And in response to that, I did make my feelings known about the meal I had to the member of staff despite you saying I should have and didn't I feel this place...

Thanks for your comments. Hope this reply was quick enough as now have had the time to get round to responding. Hope we carry on down hill as hotel and restaurant has been full for the past few weeks. Think most people can look at the reviews and make up their own minds about whether a place is any good. More

Called in as we had a lovely meal and good service when we visited Anglesey few years ago. Wrong thing to have done! Bar and restaurant empty with just two people sat in the side chairs, drinking. We walked through and went to sit on balcony. No clean tables to sit at, all littered with dirty glasses and plates. Three... More

Sorry that we were unable to seat you at 8.45 on a Saturday night, but we were not closed we were full of persons who had booked and the kitchen had more than enough meals waiting to cook. We close at 9pm which we think is reasonable and in line with most eating establishments. As for the 2 drinks at... More

On passing through amlwch we popped into local shop and asked for guidance for somewhere local to eat, on arrival we were delighted with the view overlooking the bay and were welcomed warmly, staff were friendly polite and hard working the food was delicious and fresh homemade where stated!

We are looking into ways of putting in a disabled facility in the near future but it is proving difficult in an old building. Glad you enjoyed visit and hope to see you again. More

My partner and I stayed here with another couple. According to tripadvisor, this is a 2 star hotel, but it provides great facilities and excellent service. We had the executive suite, a good size room with lovely views of the sea. It was clean, bright, comfortable and quiet. The bed was a little on the soft side, but it didn't... More

Glad you enjoyed your visit and your trip to Bodnant gardens which is truly lovely. It's good to know that the new systems we put in place to reduce waiting time appears to be bearing fruit. We hope you and your friends return again. More

This is a brilliant location with the conservatory restaurant overlooking the bay. The staff were very friendly and at first we were happy with our choice for an evening meal. But the service was very slow, we had a long wait for our meals, despite booking a table 24 hours earlier. The soup starters were excellent but the lamb henry... More

Sorry you had a bit of a wait, and hopefully it won't be as long next time. As for the Lamb, our butcher tries to keep all his cuts as standard as possible but it seems you may have had a smallish one. Thank you for your comments on the friendliness of our staff as we try to keep our... More

We have stayed at this Hotel for many years with varying degrees of satisfaction, so knowing it was under new management was hopeful it would return to former glories. We weren't disappointed, James and Gill proved perfect hosts and all the staff were very friendly. The hotel has undergone refurbishment and it shows, from the bar to the bedrooms. Happy... More

James and Gill, the relatively new proprietors have improved the hotel considerably, especially in terms of furnishings, food and service. The hotel is ideally located for golf at Bull Bay Golf Club (which is only a few hundred yards away). I have been organising an annual golf trip to the hotel for friends for many years now and the latest... More
