We had a sea view room at the front. Two comfy chairs were located to sit and look directly out of the large bay window at the sea, which was fantastic. Breakfast was lovely, with kippers available. The staff were very friendly and the general atmosphere was relaxing.

Feeling in need of a ‘break’ away & to experience a bit of normality, my husband & I spent a 2 night mid-wk break at the Caerwylan last week & it was just what we needed.All of the staff were very welcoming & very cheerful (again just what we needed!). Covid rules were very well managed & apart from the obvious mask wearing about the place, it felt very safe & very much like a ‘normal Short break’. The atmosphere was very relaxed & very restful. This hotel is in a superb position & from our large bedroom Window we had beautiful views over the bay & beach & to the right Criccieth castle perched on the hill. Our large bed was particularly comfy, there was constant hot water & large bathroom with very powerful shower. Our room was ‘spotless’ as was the rest of the hotel. Plenty of choice for breakfast it was very varied & all served to table as per the rules. We chose the full welsh which was an excellent choice. The evening meals were fab, delicious & well presented. The lamb rump was so tender & tasty, that we both chose it on both nights!. There are many little towns to visit within a short driving distance & Criccieth has many interesting quirky shops & cafes. We will definitely be back.

We spent 4 days there last month and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The bedroom was ample in size with beautiful views across the bay into the Welsh mountains Food was excellent and the staff very pleasant and efficient. The absence of children helped to maintain the peaceful atmosphere
