“Mid week break to Gwesty Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We visited this hotel on the 9th and 10th January 2013. What a wonderful place to visit. The village was unique and the accommodation was just fantastic, everything you needed from tea making facilities down to bath robe and slippers. We stayed in Bridge House - second floor up and the views from the window were spectacular. Plenty of walks, and very relaxing. The staff wer friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Dave at the Gatehouse is definitely an Embassador for the Hotel, what a fantastic personality he had. The food was well presented well cooked and different. I would have liked a few more vegetables and potatoes but that would be the only complaint which is not worth mentioning. Well worth a visit and will be visiting again shortly.

Room Tip: We stayed in Bridge House second floor overlooking the estuary. Views were fantastic. I don't t...

We added a night at the Castell to our 3-night stay in a Portmeirion village suite - it made leaving Portmeirion a little easier!

Our room (8) overlooked the car park, but it didn't detract from the room or the outlook and we were not disturbed at all.

It was huge, with underfloor heating, en suite bathroom with spa bath / shower and l’Occitane toiletries, large comfy bed, sofas, two desks, Denon stereo system and a real gas fire (not that it was required as the room was comfortably warm).

There is a choice of complimentary teas, coffee and drinking chocolate with biscuits in the kitchenette, which also houses a small fridge and is all hidden away behind doors.

We ate lunch in the Restaurant as well as dining in the evening. The menu is different to the Hotel, but equally well cooked and presented. Frank and his staff were excellent and both meals were of very good quality as was the service.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Castell, but our hearts remain with Portmeirion itself. Having said that, we would definitely add a night at the Castell again.

Have just arrived home after a fabulous weekend break at Castell Deudraeth. We had the pleasure of being in room 5. The room was massive and we were well and truly spolt. We ate in the Castell on both nights and have no complaints about the quality and quantity of the meals. We were transported by minibus to the Hotel Portmeirion so we could have a drink in the bar there. Both building are stunning and both boast grand fireplaces. Cant wait to return a definite 12 out of 10!!!!!

Room Tip: Room5 was large with comfy sofa and equally comfy bed,

A two night stay in The Penthouse Suite at the hotel provided a very relaxing break between Christmas & the New Year. The room was huge with a lounge area, 2 x TV's, a Denon sound system coupled to a Blu-Ray player (take your own discs though. I forgot to take anything and they had none to borrow), a small kitchen area with fridge, a well appointed bathroom with spa bath and shower over and besides a very comfortable big bed there was also a gas powered "real" flame fire.

The one disappointment was that the balcony is almost completely surrounded by the castle's battlements and the views were only possible through the arrow slots. However as our stay co-incided with the usual wet and windy Welsh weather it was hardly a problem.

Food was taken in the Castle's restaurant and was excellent on both evenings. We also took "Afternoon Tea" in the blue mirror room at the Hotel Portmeirion which was a real extravagance but worthwhile.

We've been coming to Portmeirion for over 25 years and it has never let us down.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 & 10 are apparently the best if it is important to have a good view from the windows. Ro...

We have just returned from a fabulous relaxing two day stay at Castell Deudraeth. We have eaten there before but never actually stayed in the Castell. It was fabulous, totally surpassed our expectations. We ate in the Castell on the first night and then at the Hotel Portmeirion the second, both meals were faultless and excellent value for money. The village is fantastic you see something different at every visit. We had a lovely walk to the point on the Monday morning and the waves were crashing, very dramatic. The room itself was lovely (room 10) spacious and bright with everything you could wish for. The Sherry on arrival was a nice surprise. The staff were friendly, the room cosy complete with living flame fire, all in all fabulous value for money. We have already booked to go back in February!

Room Tip: We stayed in room ten overlooking the estury

We stayed for 2 nights at the Castle in order to celebrate our wedding anniversary and enjoyed our stay very much. The drive to Portmeirion is a pleasure and checking into our room (suite 8) revealed a lovley spacious suite with a seating area and living flame fire, a small kitchen area and a very modern bathroom with a large jacuzzi type bath. The bed was also very large and comfortable and was complemented with bathrobes and slippers.

We dined on the first night in the hotel restaurant down at the bottom of the village (complimentary shuttle bus service) and have to say we slighty prefered the food and ambiance at that location, thats not to say the dining experience at the castle was poor,its just we preferred the first venue.

Walking through the extensive grounds of Portmeirion is a pleasure and on a cold winters morning to return at lunch time and sit in front of an amazing roaring log fire within the castle is one of lifes little luxuries. The fireplace is 150 years old and is magnificent during the cold months, the fact that there is an adjacent bar serving local beers and cocktails is a reason enough to spend a couple of hours warming up.

A special mention to the staff, they are all very friendly and helpful and help to make the stay special. In conclusion if you like staying in oldy worldy castles but with all the mod cons discreetly included, in a stunning setting then pay this place a visit, i dont think you will be disappointed !!

We have just returned from a 2 night stay, we had accommodation booked in the Castle, although I think we could have stayed in Port Meirion Hotel also. The room (No 6) had under floor heating, gas fire, settee, table and chairs, large comfy bed, whirlpool bath, all to a very high standard, very modern. It was very clean, spacious but cosy and I would recommend it highly. We had a meal included in the price which we took in the castle bistro although we could also have taken it in the hotel. It was delicious and the staff throughout our stay couldn't have been more helpful. We would definitely go again!
