In addition to being a charming guest house in a beautiful location, the food we have been served here is the best we have had since arriving in England 3 weeks ago! We are on vacation from the states and cannot say enough nice things about the facility, the proprietors and the food!!!

Myself, family and friends stayed here on the weekend and fell in love with the place. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and at home in this wonderful castle in an amazing location.

The owners couldn't be more helpful and the kids loved the place. Food at both dinner and breakfast was perfectly cook and I can't recommend the lamb dinner more ! Sid the dog was very forgiving of the kids and my son was quite tearful having to leave.

Suitable for a family or a couple, its at the higher end of the budget but trust me its worth it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but the tower rooms are just a bit more unusual.

What a wonderful way to spend our Golden wedding celebration with the family. We were met with such a warm welcome from both Maureen and Peter. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We enjoyed the luxury of the four poster bed and of course the Jacuzzi that went with it. Who said Castles were cold not this one.

A fabulous setting for a special family get together. All the rooms we stayed in had a 'wow' factor & Mum & Dad particularly enjoyed the luxury of the large jacuzzi bath accompanied by fantastic views over the estuary. The food was wonderful & Peter & Maureen were only too happy to adapt the menu to suit the guest’s dietary needs. Their attentive but unobtrusive service, left every-one feeling totally at ease, even in the rather grand surroundings of a Glandyfi Castle

What a wonderful way to spend time in this fairytale place. How amazing that Peter and Maureen had the tenacity and vision to save this beautiful building from the ravages of time, a wonderful achievement and one done with obvious love and passion.
Our stay was excellent in every way, the room was lovely and we wanted for nothing. The food was delicious and eaten in the relaxed atmosphere of the exquisite conservatory with the ever changing light on beautifully pointed stonework. The views across the estuary and the sound of the birds made our short stay perfect.
Would we go back? Without a doubt, cannot recommend highly enough, we even had perfect weather!
