“A nicely preserved castle.”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Lots of restaurants close by but a very busy place in the summer. Streets are very narrow but they did have ample parking.

“Lovely and Interesting.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is a castle that seems to go and on, just as you think you've finished, there's a bit more to look at. There are a lot of little nooks and crannies up stairs, off the main part of the castle to look at. There is a charge for parking, but if you go on a Sunday it's free, toilets are also located in the car park. There are some parts of the castle that aren't accessible to people in wheelchairs, or for people who have difficultly in climbing stairs, but there is the main part of the castle that can be enjoyed by all. They do drinks from a coffee machine and the staff are very helpful and informative.

“Beautiful views”
Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

A lovely castle but I feel slightly overpriced for what you get. There was very little information about the castle. And on this day they were filming so felt we couldn't really explore very well. Nice but not the best place to visit

“Lovely features”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Our very first castle in Wales!
What a beauty, lots of original features to find everywhere you look.
Detailed decorations above the door, the arches at the great hall, the original wooden door that was being restored, the lovely shaped windows, the views, ... well, just go and see for yourself!
The kids loved it too, our youngest loved the shop in particular, they sell wooden swords, bows and arrows, ... a few days later we had found out that all the castle shops in Wales sell these wooden armoury-stuff :)
