Reviewed 20 May 2014

Lovely views but all other aspects were hugely disappointing. Our 'Excective' room had tired decor, a cracked window and was none too clean. There were water marks on the wall and the room needed redecorating. The complimentary fruit was by no means fresh. The TV on the wall was very last century. There was no desk as such, and no chair for laptop users. The lift to the first floor was very small, and would only accommodate one person with luggage. This place is unsuitable for people with mobility problems. We didn't eat in the 'hotel'. but saw that the wine list was very limited. There is no car park, which would surely pose problems in high season. The local facilities were sadly lacking, too.

This is a false and malicious review from a person who has not actually stayed at The Caerwylan.

If you are considering staying with us or having dinner in our Tonnau Restaurant (which has wide ranging menus and a full wine list) please consider:

1) The numerous fair and balanced reviews placed by guests since we completed the total refurbishment of the hotel in the Spring of 2012;
2) The fact we are one of 34 hotels in Wales who have received the Visit Wales 2014 Gold Award accolade.

Thank you

Nick and Fiona

Just what you would imagine a seaside hotel would be. Rooms extremely comfortable and recently renovated. We had a sea view room and bathroom. A bath looking out to sea was relaxing after a days sight seeing. Staff are friendly. Enjoyed the lounge. Great breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room

Top notch hotel. Excellent staff, especially Haf. Great location. Excellent breakfast, nice and warm. We even won the pub quiz raffle at the Castle Inn, with the help of Facebook, Google and Messenger. We donated to the school fund. The mixer tap didn't work right

What a beautiful place to stay- very welcoming staff and comfortable rooms with an absolutely fantastic view over the bay. The food was gorgeous too! Thank you for a lovely break; we hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Worth paying for a sea view room.

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.
