We recently held our small intimate Wedding Ceremony here, and had a most unforgettable experience. The ambience of the |Castle is absolutely wonderful, sympathetically furnished to a very high standard.

Our friend was celebrating his 60th birthday, my husband and I plus our 2 good friends stayed overnight. The dining room was beautifully laid out for our meal of 14 friends and family. The food was cooked to perfection and so much left over. We were the only 2 couple staying at the castle and Maureen (who was lovely) upgraded...

The location and grounds were picturesque and peaceful. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The building was stunning both from outside and inside wooden panelling throughout with rooms tastefully furnished with objets d'art. The bedrooms were warm and comfortable and we were kindly offered a free upgrade. We dined here and the food was superb. I can't think of anywhere...

I booked a room at Glandyfi whilst staying in Machynlleth for the Comedy Festival. I am SO glad I did. From the very first conversation with the owner during booking, I knew that this would be something a bit out of the ordinary. I was not disappointed. It is no surprise to me that this place only gets good reviews-...

I am intrigued by this review since there have been no appointments made by anyone during the last couple of weeks to visit the Castle regarding a Wedding. One can only wonder what the motive of this review might be.

My husband and I booked The Castle for Easter weekend for a surprise party for friends and family.
