I stayed at Glandyfi Castle for a night in April 2013, and it was fantastic. My room was gorgeous with a lovely view out over the castle gardens, and the views from the diningroom etc out over the estuary are absolutely beautiful - and if you're really lucky you might get the full 360 view from the turret! When I think castle I think cold and drafty, but this is warm and toasty and inviting, and feels like a lovely home, and we got given tea and scones on arrival. Will definitely visit Glandyfi again if I get back to Wales from New Zealand!
As a side note, I do recommend contacting them ahead of time if you want a room - we turned up on the day and got a room, but apparently this was quite unusual for them.
