Have just returned from my fifth visit to the Caerwylan but my first since Michael and Francis have taken over.

As the organiser of a group visit, the hotel staff could not have been more helpful. Last minute changes were not an issue and the Caerwylan Team made it a great weekend away. The rooms were clean tidy and warm and even our late arrival was no problem. Great cooked breakfasts and the chef produced an amazing evening meal for...

I had a one night stay here whilst on a golfing trip having stayed here in the past. The hotel has new owners, it offered good quality then and it is still very good.

Thank you very much for your review, We totally understand your downside point regarding breakfast starting at 8am only, the reason we don't change this to earlier is that we don't want the noise of the extractors in the kitchen to disturb those guests who wish to lie in. I am pleased that we were at least able to provide...

We love Criccieth and with The Caerwylan have now found somewhere "proper" to stay.

For the second time this year we have stayed at the Caerwylan. Although it has changed owners it hasn't changed in essence. New owners are Michael and Frances who hail from South Africa. Two charming people who have, I suspect, boundless energy and enthusiasm. Nothing has really changed. Well maybe the food is a little better but it was excellent...
