Stayed there two weeks in a row, 4 nights each week. Amazing location, by the sea front, right next to the beach and plenty of restaurants or take-aways. Nice, clean rooms, fairly new furniture, free wi-fi, free parking ( and you can always park in the street, right in front of the hotel, it's free ). But what it makes it even more pleasant, is the staff. They will easily go the extra mile to make you feel as comfortable as they can. Be back for sure, if I have the chance.

Lovely short break as soon as Covid lockdown allowed! Everything felt very secure and safe, the whole hotel from management down to housekeeping doing their best to make it unobtrusive and make me feel,comfortable. Shout out to Tracy, and the other reception staff, who were working particularly hard. Food is excellent, as always, particularly the lush breakfast (delivered to the room due to Covid, is there anything more luxurious than breakfast in bed?) and dinner was perfectly washed down with a bottle of Purple Moose Beer from the bar. One of my favourite hotels. The best rooms are the premier rooms at the front of the hotel with he astonishing sea views. Booked again for June.

We had a sea view room at the front. Two comfy chairs were located to sit and look directly out of the large bay window at the sea, which was fantastic. Breakfast was lovely, with kippers available. The staff were very friendly and the general atmosphere was relaxing.

Feeling in need of a ‘break’ away & to experience a bit of normality, my husband & I spent a 2 night mid-wk break at the Caerwylan last week & it was just what we needed.All of the staff were very welcoming & very cheerful (again just what we needed!). Covid rules were very well managed & apart from the obvious mask wearing about the place, it felt very safe & very much like a ‘normal Short break’. The atmosphere was very relaxed & very restful. This hotel is in a superb position & from our large bedroom Window we had beautiful views over the bay & beach & to the right Criccieth castle perched on the hill. Our large bed was particularly comfy, there was constant hot water & large bathroom with very powerful shower. Our room was ‘spotless’ as was the rest of the hotel. Plenty of choice for breakfast it was very varied & all served to table as per the rules. We chose the full welsh which was an excellent choice. The evening meals were fab, delicious & well presented. The lamb rump was so tender & tasty, that we both chose it on both nights!. There are many little towns to visit within a short driving distance & Criccieth has many interesting quirky shops & cafes. We will definitely be back.
