We spent an unforgettable weekend at Glandyfi Castle to celebrate my husband's 65th birthday.
Close family members stayed for the whole weekend and were treated to memorable breakfasts and wonderful candlelit dinners in the beautifully decorated dining room.
Everyone was delighted with the luxurious accommodation and splendid views.
The courtyard was the perfect setting for my husband's birthday lunch party. 40 family members, ranging in age from 1 to 91, had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The buffet lunch was much praised and everyone's tastes were catered for admirably. The children found the castle fascinating, particularly the suit of armour, the cannon and the ramparts, and they enjoyed playing with Sidney, the dog. The adults appreciated the comfort, style and very warm welcome.
Maureen, Peter and their staff worked extremely hard to ensure that every aspect of our event ran smoothly. The service throughout was warm and attentive, yet unobtrusive.
My husband was brought up in the village, so the castle was the perfect choice for a family reunion. Maureen and Peter certainly gave him a wonderful welcome home.
