Reviewed 22 April 2014

Have just returned from a two night stay at the Caerwylan Hotel over Easter. Fantastic location right on the seafront. Had a room on the third floor overlooking the bay what a great view and very comfortable. The hotel itself is superb and has been decorated to a high standard. The hospitality shown by the owners and their staff is second to none, everyone extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice. The evening menu changed daily, we ate there both nights and both meals were excellent. We were fortunate with the weather and enjoyed local walks both along the beach and the coastal path. This is a great hotel in a good location thanks to all for a very enjoyable stay.

We have visited this wonderful hotel on three occasions, in fact three times in one year as we were so smitten by it. It is situated right by the sea and it has fantastic views.

The hotel itself is absolutely superb, the rooms are immaculate, the food is just a dream and
the staff are all very friendly and do all in their power to make your stay a happy one.

We shall certainly visit once, if not twice this year, or possibly three times, who knows?

Well done to all the staff- can't wait to see them again and to relax in the knowledge that we
will be well looked after.

.

Room Tip: That is up to each individual, they are all good.

Even though the weather did not cooperate, the Caerwylan was terrific, the food fantastic - new menus daily, and it was quiet and the room very comfortable. Loved the sitting room overlooking the beach and a view of the Criccieth Castle. Thank you for an enjoyable long weekend away. :-)

Thank you Caerwylan! What a delightful hotel in which to spend a weekend away! The Caerwylan Hotel in Criccieth is situated right across the road from the pebble and sandy beach. As you approach the hotel it is obvious that it is lovingly cared for by its owners and their dedicated staff - and their hospitality shown towards guests is exemplary - polite, interested, helpful and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is beautifully decorated throughout, with no expenses spared. We were set up in room 14 (single) and room 12 (large twin or king), both of which, although situated at the side of the hotel, had excellent views of the castle and the roaring sea. Our beds were extremely comfortable, the modern bathrooms offering heated towel rail, and lovely extras such as toiletries. We enjoyed excellent food - breakfast and dinner - with a good choice on offer. Criccieth is lovely seaside village and the locals so friendly. I am sure we'll be returning there, and most definitely to the Caerwylan Hotel.

We first discovered the caerwylan while we were having a few nights away in Wales a couple of years ago and it's now become our first choice of hotel whenever we get the chance and have the spare money to have a break.
We only stayed the one night on that occasion but went back for 3 nights last February for valentines weekend.
We decided on our first visit to pay the extra to get an executive sea view room and it is worth every penny of the extra cost to do it because the views from the large bay windows which directly overlook the sea is spectacular and therefore booked the same type of room for our last visit,
The hotel itself is perfect and i mean perfect, the rooms are second to none for space and cleanliness and the rest of the hotel is just as good, the bar area is wonderful to sit and have a quiet drink before heading into dinner in the beautiful restaraunt where the food is of excellent quality,
All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and spend time to talk to their guests and make them feel at home which is a real bonus compared to some hotels we have stayed in,
The hotel is classed as 3 star but its of an extremely high quality throughout and is far superior to some 4/5 star hotels we have stayed in
We have just booked again for 3 nights on valentines weekend next month and can't wait to get there and enjoy the perfect hotel that anyone could wish for.
Thank you so much nick and Fiona and all the staff for providing such a lovely hotel in perfect surroundings,
See you all soon

Room Tip: It's definetely worth the extra cost of an executive room but I'm sure they are all perfect

I usually prefer to stay in small B&Bs, but decided to stay at the Caerwylan, which is a 20 or so room Victorian hotel on the beach, because I loved the idea of having a view of the water. We splurged on an Executive room with a big bay window with views of the water and the castle. The room was large and comfortably furnished in neutral colors. There was a small table with two chairs by the window that was perfect for dining with a view. We ordered take out fish and chips and ate them in our room to get maximum enjoyment from the view. The bathroom was huge, though nothing luxurious, but it also had a water view. Breakfast was very good, and parking was easy at the Blue China right down the street. I was impressed that each morning they cleaned the room while we ate our breakfast.

Criccieth is an okay small town, but I wasn't in love with it. We enjoyed touring the very small castle, but it certainly isn't worth going out of your way for. We visited Tre'r Ceiri hillfort on the Llyn peninsula (our favorite hike of our two weeks in Wales -- equal in thrills to Snowdon, but a lot easier), as well as Harlech, Caernarfon and Mount Snowdon. They were all easy to reach from Criccieth, but I would guess there are better bases for touring the area. Still, we were very glad we chose the Caerwylan, primarily because of the view from our room.

We arrived at the Caerwylan Hotel on Friday for a weekend away and were straight away impressed with the place. We received a great greeting at the check in desk and were shown around the hotel. The man that greeted us was just so kind and friendly. We received the same treatment throughout our stay, The staff were wonderful, kind and funny. The food was just of a superior quality and the hotel itself is in a fabulous location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely plan to go back soon.
