I stayed at Caerwylan twice - for 5 nights and 1 night. Comfortable room, picturesque views of sea and castle, great food, wonderfully friendly & helpful staff and conveniently located for visiting the many beautiful sights of the Llyn peninsula and Snowdonia. What’s there not to love?!

Stayed there two weeks in a row, 4 nights each week. Amazing location, by the sea front, right next to the beach and plenty of restaurants or take-aways. Nice, clean rooms, fairly new furniture, free wi-fi, free parking ( and you can always park in the street, right in front of the hotel, it's free ). But what it makes it even more pleasant, is the staff. They will easily go the extra mile to make you feel as comfortable as they can. Be back for sure, if I have the chance.
