My husband Ron & I stayed at Glandyfi Castle for 5 nights at the beginning of May. Our room, Skylark was well appointed & comfortable. The bed allowed for a very good nights sleep.
The view from our bedroom was over the extensive garden, while the view from our bathroom was over the estuary. The bathroom had a great walk in shower & plenty of hot water.
The full english breakfast was excellent & very filling plus plenty of choice of cereals & fresh fruit.
Evening meals were first class & good selection of wines.
The hosts & owners Maureen & Peter are extremely welcoming & friendly, nothing was too much trouble & they were very knowledgeable about the history of the castle & the surrounding area.
We enjoyed walking around the extensive grounds some of which is still wild.
We had a most enjoyable stay & will be very happy to return in the future.

My husband and I spent two nights as guests at the castle. It was better than I expected. Our host and hostess were friendly and engaging, and we felt like welcomed guests. Maureen has paid attention to little details that made me feel special: thick terry robes, finer quality soaps, antique furnishings. The breakfast is magnificent, with fine china and many tasty options. Host Peter is so interesting to talk with. He knows a lot about the history of the area. The gardens around the castle are lovely, with plenty of pretty blossoms and little alcoves with benches. The vista from the castle is breath taking. Expansive views of the wildlife estuary for miles around.

Although it is an old castle, it has comfortable modern amenities.

We've been on a road trip through Scotland and Wales for 2 weeks, and this is by far our favorite place. Highly recommended.

Travelers tip: pay a little extra for the Nightingale Suite in the castle turret. The view is amazing.

Amazing, everything was perfect, beautiful crockery cakes to die for, delicate little sandwiches, home made quiche and sausage rolls. The setting is fantastic and so many little quirky trinkets and treasures everywhere it even has a suit of armour in the dining area.

We were invited to a friend's birthday tea here, which we enjoyed very much.
The situation of the "castle" is gorgeous, overlooking the Dyfi Estuary, set in lovely grounds.
We were made very welcome, and had a very good tea in the stunning covered courtyard. The tea provided was good quality, apart from turkey roll used in one of the sandwiches, which may be easier to make, but doesn't taste very nice! Apart from that, everything was perfect, and the rooms that we saw were beautifully furnished and decorated. It would be lovely to stay there, particularly in the summer, and enjoy a drink on the terrace overlooking the estuary.
Our time there wasn't enough.

It might look neater but doesn't taste very nice! Apart from that everything was perfect.
The downstairs rooms were beautifully furnished and decorated, and I would imagine the bedrooms would be of similar high standard..
The "castle" is situated overlooking the Dyfi Estuary in its own extensive and lovely grounds.
We would love to spend a night there, particularly in the summer, and have a drink on the terrace overlooking the estuary.
Our time there just wasn't enough.

Beautiful, delicious and plentiful homemade food, beautiful rooms, and a warm and friendly welcome. The owners are attentive without being intrusive. The flowers and the candles on the table all added to the ambience. I cannot fault it!
