“'A rare find'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2012

The word Guesthouse does not do this marvellous property justice. The proprietors Peter & Maureen Holmes have clearly done a first class renovation job on this property, which in my opinion can stand shoulder to shoulder with any exclusive country house hotel. Unlike a hotel your stay is not regimented in any way and you are made to feel at home in the luxurious surroundings. The property benefits from seclusion and magnificent views and I can see why the BBC Spingwatch presenters used it as their base while they filmed in the area. Great comments have been left by them in the guest book. In an otherwise hectic business schedule it was a real pleasure to stay at the Castle. Both Peter & Maureen are super hosts and Maureen's culinary delights are a must when staying. I will certainly consider returning with a group of friends and making a long weekend of it.

You are blown away by the spectacular views in any direction and the beauty of the sympathetically restored castle and you haven't even walked inside yet. My 7yr old daughter and I were given such a warm welcome by the family, nothing is too much trouble. The meal times are flexible which was great for us as we were visiting family and exploring the area. The food was amazing, satisfying an adult foodie and a child. All the rooms were luxuriously comfortable, which is very welcom after a day adventuring! The castles location is great for the scenery but also makes accessing Wales and its many treasures. I cannot praise this hotel high enough and eagerly look forward to a return visit.
