Our experience simply shows that TA does work very well. We found the Glyn-y-Coed Hotel and staff - our second ''home away from home'' during our recent Wales trip - to completely live up to our expectations and exceed them with respect to a friendly and warm welcome by Julie, and continued help when requested, by all staff.
Looking back, I wish we would have made this hotel our only one for the duration, especially since the location was perfect for all our day-trips, the town offered a good number of excellent restaurants, all in walking distance, and we simply loved coming ''home'' at the end of a full day.
Drinks in the comfortable lounge before going out to dinner was always a welcome respite from a hard day driving on the "wrong side of the road'' (for us Canadians).
Tip: ask for a room at the front, with full view of the castle and the sea. The chairs in the alcove are great for a glass of your choice by candle light. Traffic on the road was sparse and the windows are well insulated, so no problem.
Tip: don't miss the ''Castle Fish and Chips'' - limited seating and be prepared to line up; but well worth the wait!! Not licensed.
