Stayed here with the Mrs for the night. Welcoming staff, nice room, very clean and well kept. The views are amazing and it's a nice walk to Barmouth town for the pubs. Breakfast included and was very nice. Sat in the conservatory that overlooked the sea which was very romantic. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Hello Southo12, thank you for your feedback. We're delighted to see that you enjoyed every element of your brief stay with us. There is so much more of our surrounding countryside which I'm sure you and your wife would love, so we hope you'll pay us a return visit at some time and stay for a longer break.

Yes it's true this isn't a castle, but come on guys that's not rocket science is it? This is a beautifully quirky building which resembles a castle and is enhanced by the wood panelled entrance . It has commanding views over the bay from its raised position and the breakfast room / restaurant uses this view to give you an...

Only booked it late Friday night to arrive the next day. We had a standard double room with a sea view. It is an old hotel full of character. The decor in the rooms could probably do with an update. Overall a nice mini break. Stayed one night. Lovely breakfast. Friendly welcome the manager (I think) was happy to meet...

Interesting of victorian history made into a hotel. Can fully recommend the hotel, the two things you will find are that 1 - the staff work hard to make your stay perfect 2 - the view is second to none (guessing at an easy 40 miles to the north and south of the bay) 3 - the history and architecture...

We went out of season, beginning of Feb, when the north wales villages can be a bit quiet as a lot of businesses are closed - but we had the most fantastic beach walks, the coast here is so incredible with endless empty beaches! We enjoyed it. In season I can see it would definitely be the epitome of the...

We decided to try the west coast of wales as a post Christmas visit. Had a look around some places and thought the Ty'r Graig Castle looked interesting. It was quite a journey from where we live. Sat nav said 4 1/2 hours but that did not take into account the traffic on the M5! It was quite surreal drive...

Needing to travel to Barmouth on business with a colleague at short notice and hotel rooms in short supply, the very mixed reviews raised some concerns. However, my fears were not necessary. From the courteous and helpful welcome on arrival to the ease of settling our bills very late in the evening before our early departure, the service could not...

Not much going in Barmouth in October but the hotel was clean, comfortable and convenient. Plenty of parking and a friendly welcome. Only issue was with the shower but understand that they are trying to resolve this which is a problem when fully booked. Would recommend it.
