“Luxury all the way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Wow, this is not just a room. It was luxury all the way. The finish is very high and with wonderful quality furniture, a comfy huge bed, crisp linen, fluffy towels and immaculate all through. You are provided with a basket of toiletries should you have forgotten anything.
It is so up to date you even have an apple(iPod) docker alarm to use, and wifi provided in the bar area. The TV is a flat screen too. Important for the sport.
The hosts are absolutely fab and make you feel very welcome and relaxed, Glynn makes the perfect Gin & Tonic,
A must to visit!!!

A visit to this unique little restaurant with rooms is always spot on, the food is always very tasty and you reconise exactly what you are eating. The rooms are always fresh and clean and service is always friendly. Good choice of wines at resonable prices.

We stayed at Castle cottage in April to celebrate our wedding anniversary and couldn't have chosen a better place. Our room was spacious and luxurious with a separate seating area and the most enormous bathroom I have ever seen. The furniture was obviously hand-crafted and of a very high quality - your every need was catered for. Dragging ourselves away from the lovely room, we headed down to the bar where I particularly enjoyed the Castle Cottage special Kir Royale(s)! The evening meal was to die for and in my opinion of Michelin star quality. Everything was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented - in fact we took a photograph of each of the courses and couldn't resist tasting each others' dishes. The amuse bouche was a particularly lovely touch and the relaxed atmosphere and impeccable service a credit to the team. Glyn, Jacqueline and Megan made us feel extremely welcome and we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Caernarfon was wonderful but I imagine all of the rooms are lovely as the attention to detail is rem...

My husband and I stayed at Castle Cottage in March to celebrate his birthday, and our wedding anniversary. Despite our room overlooking a courtyard it did not deter from it's comforts. Large bathroom with underfloor heating, which was very welcome at that time of year. Lots of lovely toiletries, fruit, water, and hospitality tray. Dinner was exceptional, and really relaxed. How we managed the huge breakfast next morning, we will never know. Pricey to stay and eat there, but well worth it. Will go back for a special occasion.

We have a holiday home in the village of Harlech and visit frequently. We try to eat here each visit as it is a really lovely treat. Superb food, lovely setting. Well worth the (pricy) outlay. Service can sometimes be a little cold, but we don't let that spoil our meal. NB - we have never booked or slept in the rooms here.

Hi Dj_akademix
Thank you for your fabulous review of us. Glad you enjoyed the super food; sorry about being a bit pricey, but running a restaurant with room is not a cheap business. Also sorry about the cold service, but we make a point of not being in your face, always asking if you are Ok etc etc. I hate restaurants were the staff are always preening over you or reading from a script, saying 'have a nice day' or 'your welcome' all the time. Hope to serve you again soon!!!

We have stayed as a family party of 10 for our Golden Wedding Celebration on Jubilee Weekend. We were all in the annexe and it could not have been better, the rooms were lovely and everybody including the grandchildren aged 7and 13 were delighted. Jacqueline and Glyn were very accommodating regarding balloons, cake etc. The food was superb,my son and son-in-law, both of whom like good food were hard put to complete the menu on one night. The 'amuse bouche' were greatly appreciated by all. We all had a variety of dishes and each one demonstrated the care in both quality of the raw ingredients and the preparation and presentation. The breakfasts were of the same high standard. We were all sorry when our time came to leave. My husband and I would have no hesitation in recommending The Castle Cottage.

We recently stayed in Room 3 (Caernarfon) at Castle Cottage, it's a lovely quirky room with low beams, a super-size bathroom and a nice seating area separate from the bedroom. There was a lovely relaxed feeling to Castle Cottage, the breakfast was delicious, freshly cooked and promptly served, all in all we were very impressed, we did not eat our evening meal in the restaurant but will definitely return when we can and hopefully sample the menu then - watch this space!

Hi MrsC876
Wow , thank you for this heavenly review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our fantastic rooms. We buy and use as much local produce as is possible - local sausages, dry cured bacon, free range eggs, organic yogurt, freshly squeezed orange juice etc etc. The same quality is applied to our dinners in the evening, hope you will have time for dinner next time!
