Caerwylan Hotel
Ranked #1 of 6 Hotels in Criccieth
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We have just spent three fabulous nights at the Caerwylan and every member of the team there did everything they could to make us feel so welcome. The entire team are so friendly, I cannot praise them too highly. The hotel is an absolute gem, with the contemporary stylish decor refurbishment that has been undertaken blending effortless with the traditional sea side village feel of this fantastic location.
If you are looking for a boozy, disco riddled town full of slot machines & candy floss, this is not for you. If however, you are looking for somewhere to spend a peaceful, relaxing few days, away from the madding crowd, then You could do a lot, lot worse than here.
Food, service and real feel of the lost British seaside holiday are alive and well here, but brought into the 21st century.
We stayed in room 26, with a view right across the bay and having one of the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever experienced.
Overlooked by the Criccieth castle standing proudly on the headland, I would not hesitate in returning.
Thanks to Nick, Fiona and the rest of the team for wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room, it's well worth it!

We stayed 4 nights in this nice, perfectly situated hotel. We played golf on 6 different courses around Criccieth, the distance to the courses was just good. It was nice to see also the surrounding area. The view from the lobby is so beautiful and service couldnt be better. The food in the hotel was very good but we also visited some other restaurants near by. We warmly recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for the room with seaside view, for example room 22 is ok!

We stayed at this hotel at the end of April with friends and were pleasantly surprised at the view over the bay from the lounge. The hotel is well positioned for visiting local places of interest. Our room, room 22, was very clean and had a view of Criccieth Castle and a side view of the sea. We were grateful for the help that Reception gave us during our stay as nothing was too much trouble. All the remainder of the staff were very pleasant and helpful. The meals were excellent and we were well looked after by Anwyn in the Restaurant. We took the option to rent a garage at £1.75 per day ensuring our car was off the road.

Overall a great, recently renovated hotel, with very helpful staff, and we look forward to staying again in the near future.

Room Tip: We had a 'Castle' view room and without paying extra for a front facing room it was a spacio...

We had a lovely break @ the Caerwylan, our stay was unavoidably curtailed but we will definitely return @ the earliest possibility.We had a very comfortable room with a superb view of the sea. The food was excellent & the owners & staff made us very welcome & were constantly concerned that our stay was enjoyable

Room Tip: Try and book a sea view room

Just spent a 2 night stay through Groupon at this hotel and the position and views are amazing. Having read some of the previous reviews we weren't sure what to expect but we had a lovely stay. We travelled with friends and had rooms next to each other. They were totally different but clean and comfortable. My only comment would be that the bathroom was very narrow and as the loo was separate I found this rather inconvenient. There's no Wi-Fi in the bedrooms either. My only suggestion to possible guests who like an early un-interupted night is make sure you have a room at the front of the hotel. There is a train line running at the back of the hotel. The last train goes past rather noisely at 11.15pm and the first at 6.45am. The food in the hotel restaurant was wonderful with very generous portions. Breakfast had plenty of choice and really sets you up for the day. We did enjoy our stay and I hope you enjoy your stay if you choose this hotel too.

Recently stayed through Groupon and we just cannot speak highly enough of the hotel, location, views, staff, our room (rooms vary so it is worth some effort to get it right), breakfast and dinner. Without doubt we will be back!

Room Tip: Upgrade to at least standard plus.

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful hotel on Good Friday 2013. We arrived and were actually escorted to our room which has not often happened. The views from Room 37 were breathtaking! The castle to the right, the sea straight ahead, and snow-covered mountains to the left. We spent a relaxing, chilly evening with a bottle of wine, cheese, and bread in our bay window seating overlooking the sea. It is obvious that this hotel is still being refurbished and returned to its former glory. We were sad to leave after a short stay. We highly recommend this hotel.
