Maureen and Peter made our wedding day so memorable, from providing the most beautiful setting to ensuring our guests and ourselves had the perfect day. Every room is stunning with breath taking views and very clean. Staff were friendly and helpful and the food is delicious! A day us and our guests will always remember.

We all gathered here to celebrate a golden wedding anniversary last weekend. This is a truly wonderful place with views over the Dyfi estuary and beyond to Aberdyfi. The Hotel its self has 8 rooms which are named after birds. They have all been decorated to the highest standard (Laura Ashely furnishings ). My wife an I stayed in the Nightingale room which had amazing views and was just perfect. The food, wine and courtyard dining area was lovely and the staff were attentive. Perfect for those special occasions.

Our friends promised us a special treat and so Glandyfi Castle proved to be! From Pimm's on the terrace, with its spectacular views of the Dovey Estuary, to our charming rooms with their luxury en-suite bathrooms, we loved everything about this delightful B&B. And we were so pleased that we had booked the evening meal – beautifully cooked and quite delicious. We have recommended Glandyfi Castle to friends and family and look forward to our return!

Great location, beautiful rooms and scenery! Gardens are well kept and tidy.
Staff welcoming and helpful, and the castle hound makes it even more special!
Food is incredible! As good if not better than Michelin starred restaurants and the portion sizes are brilliant! Enough for someone with a big appetite!

My husband and I spent one night here in April. We wish we had booked for longer. Maureen and Pete were so welcoming and we enjoyed talking to them about the work that was carried out to restore the castle to its original splendour. We happened to be the only guests and it was amazing to have our own castle for a day. Sydney their dog kept us company while we sipped wine in front of the open fire and the meal Maureen prepared was amazing. We enjoyed walking around the beautiful grounds and the amazing views of the surrounding area. We spent 5 weeks touring around the UK and this was the best accommodation for our entire trip. We recommend Glandyfi Castle to anyone looking for a special experience and we hope to return again in the future. Thanks Maureen and Pete for such a wonderful time that we will always treasure. Helen and Mick
